Happy New Years… Now back to it.
January 1, 2011 5 Comments
Guys and Gals, I would like to open with a hearty Happy New Years to you and yours, and may the next one be even sweeter and more intense than the last. There have been MANY trials and tribulations in the past one, but with the new year comes the chance to hit the reset button, wipe the slate clean, and just do it differently this time around.
Just a little local update: the guys and I got together and played a show on the top deck of a friggin house boat, with our backdrop being an actual operating natural gas plant with both flare stacks kicking off, giving out a really cool looking pyro affect that you couldn’t PAY for. We had a couple of guys get up front and try their hand at a little vocalizing, but in the end we (the band) decided to just do it ourselves, with myself and the other drummer rotating out on vocals. Thank whatever higher powers above that the crowd apparently had had enough libations to actually tolerate my screeching howl but the feedback so far has been pretty good, with our usual disclaimer of “glorified practice” going out prior to any activities. Oh wait… we actually video taped the whole friggin thing as well, so when the really crunchy embarrassing bits get processed into digestible pieces they will be posted here for all to use as the requisite blackmail material.
Other than that it is business as usual in your favorite part of Africa. I do hope for a blindingly bright future for you all…. So time to get to it!
As promised, here is the incriminating evidence.
