Definately a fire starter, twisted fire starter

Six days. That's it. Six days and the CD will be in our grubby little paws. Each one is starting to move very, very slowly. In fact, everytime I look at the clock, it's 12:47. It's always 12:47 nowadays.

Which is not to say that nothing's happening. No sir. It's just that April 11th isn't happening fast enough. We're actually in the middle of a website redesign (and by "we," I mean Katrina & Brett) and, last night, I got a sneak preview of what the new one will look like. It's quite wonderful. If you love the little spinning, vertigo-inducing menu (as well you should), get your fill over the next couple days, then say your goodbyes. We're putting her to sleep next week. But don't worry: we're taking her out to a nice steak dinner before hand...and then drugging her wine. Sorry, darling. We've never been good at break-ups.

Below, I'd like to show off a poster for the upcoming Northwest jaunt with Division Day. Their singer and pianist* Rohner made this one, and, to be honest, it gives me poster envy. Mainly because I'm still making them with pencils & crayons and then I end up seeing something like this...

...and I realize I should've taken a photoshop class at some point. I've mastered the paintcan function so far. Tomorrow: the eraser.

Lastly, we started getting some love on WOXY FM last week, which I mention because Zach just informed me that that's the station Dustin Hoffman stutters about in Rainman. The Future of Rock and Roll, definately the Future of Rock and Roll. They're strictly internet these days, but the playlist is strictly fantastic. Hell, I've been listening all morning, and, with the exception of a Prodigy song, enjoyed all of it. Plus, you've gotta love the fact that they switch it up and play different songs from not just our album but anything they have in rotation---basically, it's not just a bunch of singles. Check them out, if you're so inclined. Just promise not to request Prodigy.

* and yes, for the record, I laugh everytime I hear the word "pianist." I am a direct descendant of Beavis.

Impatient is my middle name.

I want to give you our damn CD. NOW. Except it's busy picking up low-class hookers in Prague. Once it's all tuckered out, it's yours.

so i guess I'll be handling the new cd with latex gloves, huh.

birdmonster said...

And a sombrero made of condoms, if possible.

OK...I can't hold back anymore. It's "definitely", not "definately". Sorry I just had a Lynn Truss moment.

Who is the limp-dicked pissant with the secret shopping posts. Shop this you twisted little geek!

If someone's going to call me out on my spelling, at least it's you. I would've added a comma after the "Sorry" in sentence two also. Right back at you big guy! (And, dare I mention that the third sentence is a question with no question mark? I just did.)

If you find "Anonymous," please slap his face for me.

1. you guys need to use haloscan, gets rid of all those annoying spam commenters, however i kinda like the idea of secret shopping and 900 bucks.

2. please make sure you double package my cd or send those aforementioned latex gloves along with it? i don't think i have any time for any STDs these days.

3. can we stop talking about your album and get back to Lost? jeez. "Henry" is getting better and better each week.

Rachael:
1-We may have to do so. I was hoping that the blogspot spam disease would never infect us here, but, apparently, it has.

2-Sure thing. We gotta watch out for are you presale buyers.

3-You aren't allowed to talk about Lost today. Why? Because last night's has only been taped, not watched. I would weep if something was spoiled. That said, I'm glad Henry was involved. Work needs to end so I can watch it.

Justin, your posters are actually *much* better than this one. (SORRY DUDE WHO MADE IT).

As a pain in the ass, very critical designer/typo-person, my first reaction is, Holy Distorted Textura! It is painful to see this happen to such beautiful forms.

Let's talk about Lost.

ali. said...

dude, i was listening to WOXY when they played the prodigy too. wtf.

birdmonster said...

Zara: aw, thanks. No Lost until later. My bandmates don't watch it and are jealous of our supreme LOST knowhow

Ali: WTF, WTF indeed. I'm proud to say I never owned that album. I've owned some embarrasing shit, but not that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I gotta spin some Hootie.

Rachael said...

good thing i didn't spill the fact that they were rescued from the island.

whoops.
