Are jazzmasters like, "in" Right now, or is it just me paying a lot of attention to them? Like when you see the same car on the road 100 time or when you see the same number everywhere only because you’re thinking about it? Or does everyone and their second cousin’s daughter have one?
It sucks because I really fucking want one too. Except I am getting an Avatar 2x12 first. (Fuck yes!!!)
It will have celestion seventy 80’s until I can get some vintage 30’s. I love those things.
This is (nearly) the final version. I am really proud of this and I just wanted to show everyone a general idea of what the record will sound like. If you want to wait for the whole record, by all means. but I really wanted to show people that WE ARE ACTUALLY GETTING IT DONE! I PROMISE!
this is our “peppiest” song. (We’re such a fucking emo band sometimes) probably one of my favorites to play though. Evan is such a good guitar player.
I have no idea how or why I wrote any of the music I did for Author/Illustrator. All of the songs I write now are so fucking drastically different. I feel like we aren’t even going to be the same band, especially now that greg is leaving. We are going to be so much darker and rhythm oriented. I don’t know. We’ll probably do that for an album, then we’ll be a powerpop band or something. I don’t know. maybe we’ll stop this phase of ripping off colour revolt and thrice.
You and I have this romeo and Juliet type of relationship. I want to have you so badly and you want wrap yourself around me and lay me down to sleep in your bed, but we are so far away. There are too many complications. My family would never allow for me to be near you. Homework and insomnia think your family deserves the hottest of hellfire and do everything in their power to keep us separated. I danced with you at that party tonight and it was marvelous. Alack, there lies more peril in thine eyes. I had no idea you were of that family - my only love sprung from my only hate. What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
we really need a place to play our CD Release show and “last show with greg” show. We want it to be on January 6th. I would prefer the biggest and most empty basement in the midwest. I just want it to be a free show that everyone can go to and listen to us play with everyday/everynight and scouts and the whurlitzers. Is that too much to ask? I want the show to really represent us as TAATI. The C-Note was perfect but we can’t. UGH. I care so much about this show. We are spending a month practicing for it, and not anything else. We might record one more song for Session I as a bonus track. so it would be Session I, then Pale and Bright (bonus track) and Books, Bones, the confidante (Bonus track). That would be it.
Fuck. I can’t wait for that show. I can’t wait to finish mixing and mastering our record. We are doing everything DIY and I think that is a very important element of our band. We work for ourselves and try to get it as good as we can. we’re 5 (now 4) young adults with low paying jobs and an ache to create. We’re not signed, we’re not a big deal, we’re whatever. I think the honesty and the self-sufficiency of our band pushes us so much harder. Rather than pay 500 dollars for something to all of this stuff for us, we have our hands in everything and eventually we will get as good of quality as all of those people.
Kickstarter is the homeless man of the music industry. It basically puts it out there that we’re accepting donations to succeed. Pay for your own damn record, if it was that important, then you’d be willing to put your own money into it.
I’m not a homeless musician, I’m a big boy, who wants to do something with my band, on our own, that makes you proud and happy…without spending a dime of your money, if you want to help a band out, buy the record once it’s recorded. Help them break even, don’t fund it entirely.
I’ve got to be honest with you, I’ve pretty much dated the same person over and over except for right now. They’re all lunatics, promiscuous, “artsy” (except NOT) and a lot of people tend to be intimidated by them for one reason or another. They’re all full of absolute shit. They’re not special.
