Busy as a bee...busy as a bee... I've been real busy as of late, what with going to shows and practicing... and then if you factor in that my computer blew up last Friday morning... and that I'm currently looking for some place for me and my dog Kenny to live... it's a wonder that I have time to do anything at all. After Primus I was in no condition to do anything, and as I was posting the Show Review (which can be found here) my computer made a funny sound and then I smelled something burning and then my computer went POOF! Bye! I was fucking pissed! It's like almost 4 years old, and I've had to fix it twice before, so I figured it was time for a new one. I went to Fry's and scooped up a killer HP computer for hella cheap... and it's totally rad! More USB ports... specifically made for use with digital cameras... better video card... DVD burner... so now instead of just downloading CD's, I can totally bootleg DVD's as well! Woo Hoo! God Bless The System! It's Clash videos for all! lol I barely had time to drag it upstairs before I was off to see Internal Affairs @ Skate City (Show Review can be found here). The show was pretty boring, but it was better than sitting round at home. The best part of the night was the birthday party for Von, the new bass player (?) for Jesus, Fuck The Sun afterwords. His lovely girl Stephanie made cookies and there was cake and steaks and burgers and loads of booze for all. What a deal. On the band front, after Jesse's little tirade the other night, The Loud Pipes are now focused on ONCE AGAIN attempting to record, ONCE AGAIN for a planned 7" release. Things have been going really good with Tony, and our songs are getting better and sharper, although we lost Jenny Won't Go, (Tony changed the words...boooo) we gained a Revenge and a Rise Up, and plus some of our older songs now have words and stuff... gee... what a concept. I think we've finally decided on our official band costume, and the commemorative shirt that Roxie designed for the Halloween show is simply amazing. I'm gonna buy like 3 of them myself, just so I can always have one to wear until next year's Halloween show... heh heh heh... it's that cool looking! I think we're gonna pass on the offer from EMI as well... as usual, it's not a very good contract, and I don't think they have our best intentions at heart... go figure. While it's nice to be asked... it's also frustrating. We're so close and yet it's just out of our reach... maybe we should start lying about people being interested in us, like some other bands in town do... hahahahahahaha... maybe then we'll get signed and become Rockstars... lol.
