La dee da..

The day was a long one, I guess.

Well, not TOO long, just kind of tiring. John came over WAY TOO EARLY, but he didn't have a watch so it was okay, I guess. Then after the sister went to school, John and I went to the legion and bowling center so I could pick up my pay. Then we went back to my place as quickly as we could so Gary wouldn't have to wait if he happened to come over a little early, but we beat him there.

I won this awesome Yamaha keyboard on Ebay and until the final money count, I was afraid that I'd end up with an overdraft on my bank account. Fortunately with a few extra dollars, I came up with enough cash and I won't have to pay a fee. (THANK GOD!) I can't wait until my little beauty arrives! 76 touch-sensitive keys and grand piano feature, among many other things. It sure beats the hell out of my 13-year-old Casio. It's about time for an upgrade.

Anyway, after practice, we hit the bank so I could make my deposit and then raided Yale's music shop. Small place, but I love it. It doesn't exactly have the best of equipment available all the time, but it's perfect for our basic needs. What do you expect from a small shop in "the valley"?

So yeah.. practice, practice, practice. And hopefully soon we'll be able to release some new music.

I'm so excited.

Today during practice time, I started playing an intro to a Korn song on my keyboard out of boredom. Eventually John joined in with a mournful guitar sound. And after a few changes to what I was playing, we created a brand new song. It's still in the works though. We need to piece things together and I need to come up with some lyrics. But this could very easily become a heart wrenching ballad in the near future. It could even be finished within the next 2-3 weeks if we work hard. I just can't wait to finish this particular song and put it up for everyone to hear.

More changes have been made to the E-team pages. Come check them out. People are required to sign up in order to view it, but registration is free and we don't spam your e-mails like a lot of people do.

I'm also trying to put together my knowledge of php and maybe come up with some special add-ons for the members only pages. We'll see how inspired I am.

Website updates.

I have made a few changes to our website today.

The front page is slightly more organized, and I have completely changed the E-team page around, creating subpages for the forum, in-depth band journal, and the other stuff located there. I figured it would be much better than throwing it all up on one page. It cuts down on loading time and the viewers look at what THEY want to see rather than searching through numerous other features.

Come see the changes at

Practice at John's place.

Just frickin' nuts.

I think those would be the words to describe the evening.

We jammed for maybe three hours. The only problem was we didn't have a decent system there for me to sing through. It sounded like crap, but it worked. That's all that matters.

It was an interesting night. Lots of jumping around and then we had hot dogs and macaroni and cheese for dinner. And naturally, it was loud.

I didn't get home until midnight.

The alarm went off at 6:00 this morning and all I could do was reset it for 7:00. Then I had to get my ass out of bed to make sure my sister was getting off to school all right.

At the moment, it's about 8:15 and John's already on the porch having his morning cigarette. I'm surprised he's even awake.

Later guys.

A ghostly queen knowing misery
The raven's nest above her
"Gone!" screams the bird of ebony
Yet another child forced to suffer
Know you're not sick or proved unworthy
Let it all out now, little one
Please don't be afraid to cry
Release all your pain and frustration
You can't hold it all inside
