It’s Tuesday

Current mood: Crunchy

There is something in the air. Maybe it’s the thinking stench of fresh-cut grass. Maybe it’s the way you yell at me. Something about the air moves me. Forces me to understand. Keeps me from relaxing. If it were another day would then would I feel this way?

The sun is warm... perhaps too bright. The swings are ready to be swung.

But, I am tired. I just want to find a dark hole and curl up and go to sleep.

Forgetting Who You Are

Current mood: ashamed

A running bear and a lake of fish. A dancing frog and a naked wish. We came. We rocked. We rinsed. Sing it load. Sing it now.

The dust swirling like a carnivorous alligator chasing its tail has become the beacon of justice in these turbulent times. Flatten by lies and corruption and taught to fend for himself. We never can understand. But, we should play our part. We should offer our fair share.

I am happy. I am the mountain. I am.

Record Release Party

First of all there was no hook. There was no chain. But, the gathering was definitely metaphorically off of the proverbial hook (chain). Yep.

We had some delicious taco salads and the rest is a blur. Chk Chk Bang! was there and they demo'd a few of their tasty licks.

The album "Wreck Oar Dings" has been sent and should appear first on CDBaby and then soon at other location. Check cabojoeandchopchop.com for complete details on where the CD will be available.

last.fm

So, I've tried all day to upload stuff to last.fm. The page tells me that "This will take about 159:36 minutes." I wait and wait and wait and wait and wait and this number never decreases. Can anyone provide tips on what I might be doing wrong?

The Video

So, Chop-Chop doesn't want to be in the Video. He wants to direct. He thinks the song "Got No Attraction" deserves a real esoteric vibe or he wants it to be an homage to Berretta in "Of Mice and Men." His true hope is that it can be both.

I just want to shoot a video in five minutes and get it posted to YouTube within a hour. Choppers thinks he's an artist. I think he's crap.

I think this RPM month has really put a strain on our friendship. I really don't have any desire to work on music or to be in the presence of my band mate.

"Is this another break-up?" you are probably asking yourself. No. We both too much invested in this band: the brand, the history, the fans. So, I think a few days (maybe weeks) apart and we will be able to move past this.

The album is do back from the duplicators on Tuesday. We might have a little soiree that night. We'll keep you posted.
