Sorry it's been so long. I've just been busy and lazy.

First off, I have to say that I hate LiveJournal. I have never seen such a horrible site since the early days of GeoCities. I still have yet to see one of the four identical posts that I supposedly sent in. I would hit submit and it would say that it failed and I would hit it again. Four times I did this and it turns out that it took them all... I think. They never showed up on the main page, but if you went to the calendar view, it showed four. So with Blogger I will stay until they get their shit together.

We've been re-recording the album. We had about 5 songs done, but there were a few that none of us were happy with, so last weekend we re-recorded the drum tracks for those that failed and the remainder of the album. I think they cam out prett good. We will have to see how they hold up under a few layers of guitar, bass, keys and vox. Sometimes you discover late in the game that the snare wasn't miked heavily enough and it just doesn't sound right. But there's always some EQ work that can fix that.

We plan on recording another set of Gourley's solo album this weekend. The last set of songs we did came out pretty good. Now we only need 6 or 7 more.

We were hoping for a gig on Saturday with Stainless Mind, but they never responded to our email. Hmm. At least email back and tell us that we suck or whatever. And then we missed a cry for help from High 5 for a Thrusday gig. Dammit. We're not too good at the getting gigs thing. Boy do we need a manger who is less worried about how to package the box set and more interested in getting his (or her) band in front of people. *sigh*

I'm in a really pissy mood right now and I appologize for that. I think I am going to go kill some people in Carma 2 or GTA right now, while drinking beer, which should make it a little more interesting. I think I'll throw on some omre of the terrible tunes from the 80's that I've been listening to recently to really throw things outta whack.
