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!

I hope you like the fancy new look. I accidentally erased some funny shit trying to make this new look. I'll try to come up with some funny shit later to make up for it.

Oh - the message board works now. I don't know if anyone noticed, but it was fucked up for a while. Isn't it nice that I have this little project, and I can break things and fix them and stay busy? I feel like a retired couple.

I spent so much time on this website today. First I wrote in the tour journal, catching up. Then I wrote a whole bunch of shit on this page, many paragraphs, funny funny stuff. Then I started redesigning some shit. Then I got carried away I guess. Then I copied a new one of these files from one place to another, and when I did this I copied over all the new shit I wrote and I saw it as soon as it happened and I just moved on. But let me tell you. Let me tell you how sad I am. One of the things I said in what I wrote was how lousy my memory is, and that if I didn't write all this shit down it'd be like it never happened. So when I lose it, oh, it's like losing a whole piece of my life. It's late and I'm feeling a little melodramatic but boy what a bummer. I'm sure it's happened to you and it's happened worse but what a nasty ....

Okay, enough of that. I've changed things, I'll keep at it. Read the tour journal for new stuff! I'll write some real shit here after I've calmed down some.

Sorry everyone! Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha! Oops! I had some problems with my server! Ha ha! Sorry about that! Hopefully next time I have any troubles it won't take six weeks to fix it.

Everything's not working just yet. There's no message board. I'll try to have it up by the end of the day, or the weekend, or in a few weeks. I'll do my best, I really will, to keep everything moving smoothly.

Now leave me alone! I'll write more later, for now I'm going to give myself a congratulatory champagne bubble-bath.
