Quote of the Update:

“Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.”

— Sydney Smith

All is well. My tummy kind of hurts. My new solo record is almost complete; I just have a few more tracks to lay down.

Blatantly Liberal Link of the Update

The ABC’s of War

Well, I wrote Misanthropomorphic. It’s your standard rock song. Sequenced the drum tracks. It looks like my solo will have seventeen or eighteen tracks. I’ve been working on tracks for other NWI tracks, as well. Hopefully I can get 3 or 4 new NWI songs on tape this weekend for the rest of the band.

Solo Album Update

Inspirational Song Quote of the update:

“The old men march slowly, all bent stiff and sore

The forgotten heroes of a forgotten war

And the young men ask, ‘what are they marchign for?’

And I ask myself the same question”

— Eric Bogle, “And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda”

This weekend was all about my solo album. I got all the electric guitar parts done (including a bitching blues song, “The Waiting.”) I borrowed Chris’s bass, his 5-string, which was fun. I managed to incorporate that low B string into a few songs (no super-poopy-low nu-metal songs, though). I got some of the vocals done, too. I think I might call the record “Misanthropomorphic” and write a title song for it this week, depending.

Tonight I did a 4-page paper for my British Lit class in about an hour and a half. To be fair, I marked the novel (Heart of Darkness by Conrad, which I did read for Senior English) as I read to get good passages for my thesis. I actually think this paper is pretty good.

Anyway, gotta get up in two hours, but my paper’s done, so I don’t have to scurry to work on it. Good night.

The Beard

Sunday, March 30th, 2003

Wow. It’s almost April. How the time does fly!

I’m almost finished tracking the songs for my next album. All I need are a couple of parts, all the basslines and all the vocals. So I’m not almost finished. More like halfway.

I am growing a beard, but I’m debating whether or not to shave it off. On the plus side, it’s basically the only ‘new look’ thing I’ve ever done, except for shaving my head my sophomore year (a horrid look immortalized on my driver’s liscence until I turn 21) and getting glasses in eighth grade. On the downside, it isn’t fully grown and right now it just makes me look mega-lazy.

Whoops. My bad. Lee. Not Leo. Leo was their drummer; Lee is their singer.

Shawn, Vinny, Cayce (I don’t know how to spell that damn name; this is close enough) and I went to Horseshoes’ show in Polson this Friday. Chris’s band also played. It was awesome. Lee’s friend broke the stage. And Lee got stuck in the elevator before the show. Both these incidents made the manager/custodian dude very pissy. Yeah, Lee broke $4 of particle board! Uh-oh! Then we went to John’s house/store and hung out for a while. left at 3:00 in the morning.

I’ve been recording throughout my spring break. That is all.
