Oh fuck! Change your travel plans! I am full of shit!

Our show at the Crocodile is on Saturday the 25th of March, not the 23rd like I mentioned earlier. I am a ding-dong!

That's all, though. Nothing else to say.


I know it's hard to believe but I've already got something to say! That's because I got an email from Andy saying this:

"The John Lee Experience (actually, he's decided to call it "Mirroramerica" despite my repeated suggestions that we call it "Yellow Stallion") with me [Andy Cohen] on guitar will have its first show at the Asian American Film Festival Rock Show 2000 event. Its March 31 at the Beat Kitchen."

That's the John Lee, I'll have you know. The Beat Kitchen is at 2100 W. Belmont in Chicago. If you get lost, don't panic! Instead, call the club at 773-281-4444.

Oh, this too: you've got to read Sean Nelson's SKWM review in The Stranger. It will make you feel like you've come to the right place.


Now don't get any big ideas, this is just for fun and we probably already know what the record's called and maybe this doesn't matter at all, but some wacko has posted a list of possible titles for the next record which you can vote for. Some of them are pretty funny. Ha! Ha! Funny! So you may visit that place if you like.


I think I've covered everything, but it's been awhile so I thought I'd check in. This thing has been crashing some lately - have you noticed? It'll be going along like a real champ, then all of a sudden it'll stop going along. I don't know why - I don't blame myself because it is not my fault, it is someone else's fault! It's the goddamned hackers, that's who it is! WHERE'S THE FUCKING FBI? THESE BASTARDS NEED TO BE STOPPED!!!

I already mentioned we're playing a rock show, right? Now I forget when it is, the 17th of March or something. No! It's the 23rd of March, or something, at the Crocodile. Hold on.... It's on the 23rd of March! I already mentioned that, I know, but what else is going on? NOTHING! So I thought I'd mention it again.

Our new record sounds good. You'll be happy to hear it. Ha-ha! I am going to milk it and milk it until it's released, because I've got nothing else to talk about! Can I keep it going for 6 months? YES YES YES!!

I'll have to think of other things to write about if I want to keep you interested. Oh: did everyone look at the Pandemonium pictures? They're admirable. They make us look like we know what we're doing! What could be better?

Okay, more later. I'll put something up here worth putting up here sometime in the next little while. I promise!


Did you notice the Y2K bug on the message board? HA HA HA that was funny. It's fixed now though so don't get too excited.

I have to tell you all the things I didn't tell you before. And I have to do it while I'm cooking dinner, and before I go to Joel's show out in Ballard. And I've been promised a party afterwards filled with Cuban girls who want to be in the movies, if you know what I mean, so I've got high hopes. But I mustn't burn the rice!

Okay, dinner is through. Whether or not I'll make it to Ballard is anyone's guess, but I think I'm going to try.... Ha! Right. Never mind, it's late. These damned little projects. The trouble is, I finally got the tour journal up-to-date. Now I don't have to do a thing to it until March 23rd! Because that's when we're playing with Cobra Verde and the Downer Trio at the Crocodile. I hadn't mentioned it yet, but I think it's high time. It'll be a shoe-poopin' good time!

So the real news is that we've recorded a new record. We finished it in Chicago last time we were there - in early December - and Tim and Steve mastered it at Abbey Road in late December or early January or something. It sounds good. Where's my damned CD? If I had it I'd record a little and put it up here, but I don't have it. I'll track it down - actually, I think we just got the mastered version back from Touch&Go, so maybe I'll get one of those tomorrow. I am sure that you will like the record. It has some golden moments. It is supposed to come out in June. We still don't know for sure what it's going to be called; if you have any grand ideas, let us know.

I have to go now. Really I do. I know I will not make it to Ballard tonight. I am on a budget!
