this is my new journal. i figured maybe it's time to stop being so goddamn serious. plus it matches my usual irc nick. i'm adding everyone and i hope they'll / you'll do the same for me.

well, that's that. i'm out of peopledie. scott says he's going to keep in touch with ray and mike. i wish everyone only the best of luck.

it kind of feels good to lose control. sure, i don't get to write riffs for the band or anything. but now, the burden isn't mine to bear. ergo, i won't be making any calls to arrange practices from this moment on, nor will i try and convince anyone to stay. if this band falls to pieces, it's just not my fault. to be honest, though, i doubt that'll happen.
naturally, i'm going to need a way to write music. since no one really wants to play what i write, i'm gonna fire up my solo project again. i'll probably give it a different name this time. perhaps if it goes far enough, i'll hire some people to play shows with me.
in other news, i'm backing up a bunch of music cds on my external hd. so if my house burns, i'll know what to grab. :)

this entry was typed using qwerty, but i promise the next one will be dvorak. i hear it's a lot easier on the fingers.

i finally got a precision philips head screwdriver set. this enabled me to open up my powerbook and install the 512 mb memory module, bringing it up to 768 mb.
tomorrow i'm taking some valentine's poop to lita. then i dunno. these days have been so boring. i wish it would hurry up and get warmer.

this guy named tanner saw an ad in guitar center for my studio and took it home. he looked around and found my aim screen name. he seemed interested in recording at my studio at first.
then i found out that he has no money and no band. then he started asking me about my equipment, criticizing my current situation, and listing his own accomplishments and experiences. it almost seemed as if this guy contacted me solely for the purpose of feeling better about himself.
so i feel a little used right now.
the show at scriber lake has been canceled. you can find more information on that here.
in other news, i just got back from the raking bombs / a kiss farewell / big business / panthers show in seattle. it was way different / pretty damn good / kind of crappy / okay.
... oh, that other entry i just deleted? let's just say a good two minutes passed between the time i hit the post button and the time i fell to sleep.

my hard drive and memory came today. the hard drive was a cinch to set up. i'm backing up everything and i'm still gonna have a bunch of space left over. i was unable to remove the faceplate for the memory slot in my powerbook though. so i'm gonna take it to the apple store and see if they can't install it for me.
peopledie practiced today. mike arrived at 2 and chilled while i set up my hard drive and began transferring everything over. then scott arrived at 3. we practiced, talked, and were generally unproductive until ray came over at 5:30. then we actually did stuff until around 7:30. big day!
tomorrow i'm going out with this girl. she lives in mountlake terrace. her name is lita. :)
