A very low key day.

The day was a long one.

John came over much earlier than usual. Instead of just dropping his guitar and stuff off around 8:15 a.m. and coming back later, I caught him while I was coming back from taking my sister to school and told him to just come on in. I left the microphone running for about half an hour to catch his playing while I was doing my computer stuff and attempting to wake up. I've got some new things to put lyrics to now. It seems that all the good guitar stuff comes by mistake.

Then we chilled out for a while and watched House of Wax. Not as scary as I thought it would be. In fact, I didn't find it scary at all. But I enjoyed it.

In the meantime, I was anxiously waiting for Domino's to open. I wanted pizza, damn it! They finally opened around the time the movie ended.

Eventually the pepperoni pizza, cheesy bread, and chicken wings arrived. It was about time. I was starving.

Then we chilled again while listening to music and stuff on my computer. And I painted John's nails for something to do. They don't look too bad, to be honest. I kind of like them that way.

By the time all this was done, I had to go pick up my sister from school and John went over to his grandma's place. Then I cleaned the house before the mother came home from work. And the next thing I know, she walks in the door and immediately says, "Kourt! We're going bowling!" I completely forgot about making those plans last Thursday evening, but I can't argue with that woman over something like this. So I went for a couple hours. Didn't bowl too well (new ball), but it wasn't too bad with Charlie's help. He's a pro level bowler, so he knows what he's doing.

Then I came home around 6 p.m. and called John up to tell him I'd be over in a few. And so I headed over and we went down to the coffee shop. We had a couple cups over the course of 3 hours or so and played cards. Discussed music a little as well. And a guy brought in the February schedules too, so we each got one of those.

All in all, it was a very long day. I didn't get back home until around 10 p.m. I'm exhausted. But it was worth it.

Practice tomorrow at John's place.

For you MySpace users..

Hey guys, did you know we had a MySpace profile?

We're kind of working on it at the moment -lots to do- but in the meantime, we're looking to make a lot of new friends and contacts, meet local people and bands (and also those who are farther away), and chat, chat, chat! We'll be sure to put some tracks up now and then for everyone to listen to and download. And if you've got any suggestions, HIT US UP and tell us your thoughts.

But for now, I've got to get back to work. I've been playing around with the keyboard and mixing tracks like crazy, hoping to come up with something interesting.

More later.

New track..

I spent a couple hours today just screwing around with my keyboard. After about five to ten minutes, I came up with a dark, kind of creepy tune and immediately called John up to play it for him.

After hanging up, I brought my dog in from outside and went back upstairs to screw around with the melody and a few random vocals. An hour later, I had recorded it all piece by piece, deleted background noise, distorted it all to an extreme, and dubbed it.

"Portal" has been born!

New domain!

The band website can now be found at! Give me a little while to get all the info and media up, but feel free to see what we've got so far and check back later for updates.

Rhythm guitarist!

Looks like we've hooked Gary for rhythm guitar! He decided not to take off and go.. god knows where.. and play with us. I'll probably snap a pic of him when we get together Tuesday morning.

I'm excited, John's excited.. We're all fine and dandy.

Now we just need a drummer and bassist. Where to find them? I haven't the slightest clue. Metal isn't exactly the biggest thing around here. Waverly is full of rednecks and skateboarders.

I was a little bored earlier while checking my myspace messages and came across this:

How to make a Kourt
5 parts pride
5 parts self-sufficiency
5 parts beauty
Layer ingredients in a shot glass. Add lovability to taste! Do not overindulge!


Okay, maybe not.

Today's Adventures

I guess you could say the day was a little odd. John came over before I even had a chance to get showered and dressed in clean clothes. I was a dirtbag but hey, if he has a problem, he can go shove it. We went over a few songs we liked and stuff. As always, it was hard to keep on topic because we talk about anything and everything as it comes to our minds. Plus John was a bit wound up today.

Then we hit Tammy's Diner for lunch. Awesome food. And cheap as hell. Our lunches together cost less than $15. This is definitely going to become a tradition- lunch at Tammy's. But I'm not sure what we're going to do for John and Gary's "two o'clock feeding time" at two a.m. The only local place would be the Dandy and get a sub or something. Denny's is awesome, but it's half an hour away. It's fine for Elmira gigs, but not for here in the valley.

After lunch, we headed over to the Neutral Ground Cafe to pick up the January performance schedule. And then made our way to Jolly's to get a couple energy drinks. (Not something John really needed!) And afterward, we walked back to my house like frickin' drunks, laughing and cracking jokes.

Back at my place, John pulled out the guitar and we worked a little bit.. not much. We did a lot of screwing around with my computer and microphone. I'm uploading a file right now. Give it another half hour though.. Damn dialup. I hate it.
