Okay, too much time spent fooling around with this thing. The
photographs page, I'm so into it. I'm too into it. I improved it and added
to it. Somebody help me!
At least now that I've got this thing at home I can update it
all the time. It's always going down and the message board is
still fucked up but it's getting close to being done. Actually
it might be fixed now, it might be.
So we are indeed playing a couple shows next month, one in Chicago
at Lounge Axe on the 17th, one in Milwaukee at the L'il Poodle-Humper on the
18th. I think. Don't quote me. We're also playing some shows,
tentatively at this point but pretty likely, with Seam in Vancouver
and Seattle and Portland in January, maybe the 13th to 15th. How's
Oh: Andy wanted me to make it so the photographs would get bigger when you looked at them. They get real big now;
if they're too big and you can't deal with it, tell me and I'll make them a little smaller.
Hello. Sorry things have been a little screwed up. Maybe the problem
is that when I leave for the day my cats climb around on my keyboard
and fuck with things and shut the server down. I don't really
care, though, so as long as no one complains too much I won't
worry about it. Just know that if you come here one day and it's
not working, come back tomorrow and it's bound to be back.
I keep adding photographs to the photographs page. I think the message board is working correctly now. Any other news? Oh, we are indeed playing
a show in Chicago and, I think, in Milwaukee in December - I think
it's the 17th in Chicago and, tentatively, the 18th in Milwaukee,
but don't hold me to it just yet.
That's all for now. I hope everyone is well. I've got to take
a nap. Then I'm goin' on a rampage!
I'm staying home tonight. The last two nights were enough to last
me for a while.
I think this new site is just about working. I'm gonna try to
make it easier to update it, add photographs, say funny stuff,
all that, but that might take a bit of work. At any rate, change
your bookmarks (if you've got any) and I will leave that other
site alone from now on. Soon it will fade away into a funny little
page that sends people here.
So Tim and I went to Washington DC to see Andy play in Bush, and
it was true - he played in Bush. He played guitar. He hung out
backstage, signed autographs, stayed in a nice hotel, had a lackey
who put his guitar on his shoulder for him, and he played Bush
songs in front of 60,000 bizarre teenage Limp Bizkit fans.
The funny thing about it, to me, was how un-spectacular it was.
I think that after music reaches a certain level of popularity,
it starts to matter little who is making it - the music and the
musicians all become part of this collective movement, chugging
ahead under the power of the kids. All those kids were going crazy,
and it was a puzzle trying to figure out why - what were they
doing here? What were they all so excited about? It seems like
when you're young, the whole world is an excuse to party - you're
not charmed music, you're more taken away by this mob mentality.
I mean, that's what it seemed like for these kids - the ones that
weren't collapsing from exhuastion, or getting molested in the
mosh pit, or weeping because Gavin wouldn't fuck them. Anyway,
the experience definitely de-mystified the rock star mystique
for me. After this long you'd think I'd have gotten over it long
ago, but for some reason I never did.
I videotaped a bunch of the show. Once I figure out how it all
works, I'll put some of it up here.
That's all for now. Andy's running around the country interviewing
at law firms, Tim's in school, I'm working at the place that makes
the software that makes the photographs page such a red-hot basket
of good times. I'll write more as the action unfolds.
See? Now that's something, isn't it? I haven't been entirely useless.
I will continue this trend by actually writing something here
in the next week or so, how's that?
Thanks to Eric B. for being such a big help. Goodnight for now.
