Thank you times one million to Lewd Acts for letting us torment ourselves down in your Escondido garage. It is a strange thing to be playing these new songs. Trying to figure out new material puts you right back to square one as a band and it's humbling and exciting and devastating each time. There was a car wreck up the street sometime after we played and in some ways it was like a ghost image of our set. We were ultimately gratified to have seen the sets of both Hot Skin and Hour of the Wolf, both bands whom fall under the "will actually listen to their CDs and not just play shows with them" category. After the show we ran into a person named Taylor that has continually supported our band. He asked some questions about the new record and here's what the answers were:
- "Yeah, Pirates Press has all the music and artwork now so we're just waiting on them."
- "Probably around January 10."
- "Black vinyl."
- "Or maybe two different colors - black and white, like me."
- "There should never be a line in front of a men's restroom."
In Hyde Park Half news, another meeting was had today and slow-but-steady progress is being made. If you haven't yet had a chance to check out a show there, please do so. Non-profit status is being secured and a full-scale tutoring/test prep/arts instruction center will be opening by summer. Please get involved! And, in the meantime, go to our show there:
What else would you like to know? That our van got towed at the request of the Buena Park Police Department? That we will be having band practice all day long this coming Saturday? That we are waist-deep in the planning stages of our Australian tour? That we will be doing some sweet shows in March starting in Los Angeles and going up to Vancouver? That we are stoked to all hell that so many of you hate the artwork that you haven't yet seen? That we like our song titles just fine, thank you very much?
Or would you rather know about a great new (to us) place to eat called Simply Wholesome? Or that you can see all of Vincent Van Gogh's annotated letters for free on the internet? Or that Clear Channel is installing new billboards along the western mouth of the 91, just so I can have more shit to look at as I drive to Justin's house? Or that I'm in week six of P90X? That we were ultimately (very) disappointed that Lawrence hit that field goal to beat Nebraska because we wanted Obama to have to settle the BCS debacle that would have ensued? That your hybrid ain't got shit on diesel? That Juan Carlos Gabe has a middle name that we were totally unaware of until today?
I watched Food, Inc. recently and regardless of whatever politico/brainwashy/propagandizing was obviously stitched into the celluloid of that film, I just could not understand the insanity that is seed patenting. Every member of DANGERS is vegetarian or vegan and we all have our own reasons for having made that choice. However, one might very well wish he was a robot so as to not eat anything at all.
Lastly, check out the new Graf Orlock website. Sniping can be fun.
It's shower season,
