We've got a good few covers lined up, including "Heart-Shaped Box" by Nirvana, "Aerials" by System of a Down, and "Whisper" by Evanescence. They're going along pretty well, and we've got a few extra tricks up our sleeves..
And.. WE'RE STILL LOOKING FOR A FREAKIN' DRUMMER! The "Drummer wanted! (Inquire within.)" thing I wrote on Jason's arm in permanent marker didn't exactly do the trick. Nor did asking random people who looked like drummers.. they were guitarists and bass players. Mreh.
If you're living in or around "the valley" and can hit 'em, send some info to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you asap. Thanks.

It's a new week and we've got a new blog renter. Check it out. I had to make no decision when choosing between blogs. This one is just effing amusing- Useless Advice From Useless Men. I could probably read it all day if I had the time.
The music's been a little slow this past week, but all's going well. We're making some good plans and I came up with some good ideas while practicing on my own yesterday. Let's see if I can remember them when I meet up with the guys.
But as for now, I need to get my arse up and ready to get out of the house.

Welcome Jason Amey (the bass tech for Agony Hill) to the group. This guy is such a blessing to us, it's unbelievable. He's so helpful and inspired, though a little bit of a hardass (which is exactly what we need), and has great ideas. Not to mention the resources that come along with the package. It's f*cking great.
I have a feeling that we're going to take off even quicker than planned.. It's so exciting.

It's all through BlogExplosion, which you need to be a member of in order to have a chance to be in on it. Basically you pay x amount of points to be listed for a week. I keep the number low so everyone can be included if they want.
So say hello to the new renter, From the Morning. I've read a bit of this blog and even though I'm not exactly Christian (I think my guys are though), I like the author's words and writing style. (And I totally support religious tolerance.) Go check it out if you've got the time. The posts are well thought out and often entertaining.
Plans for today?
I'm not sure yet. I know I have to work at 5 pm, but I don't really know what I'm doing before then. I want to work some more on "October" and a couple other things. And it's also snowing at the moment, so I'll have to go out and shovel the walk at some point. (Bleh.)
Today's supposed to be the first day of spring (Ostara), and look at that! SNOW! Cold, wet, annoying snow. Where's the warm weather and sunshine?

Today we plan on doing some recording later on after we make a few runs to the store and maybe take a few pictures. Depending on whether Gary will be joining us or not (we're not sure yet), we may hit the Chinese restaurant for lunch. I don't know.
As I type, John's here playing his Schecter and coming up with an awesome little tune. We're DEFINITELY going to use it in the near future. It's like he's got an entire song completed already.. and he hasn't even been here 15 minutes. Musical genius, I'm telling you. Maybe it's the sunglasses. I don't know.
Anyway, we're off. Thanks for reading and take care.

I've got a few things to work on.. hopefully we'll have another track finished within the next week or so if everything goes according to plan. That would be great. John won't be a problem, but I'd have to get Gary around to it and stuff. We've got a lot planned out (and practiced), and Gary's got to catch up a bit. I'm not sure if one day a week with him is enough.. maybe it is and it'll fall into place soon, but it's going kind of slow at the moment.
Hopefully tomorrow's meetup with John will be productive. I'm going to try to push these next couple songs and whatnot. He's been practicing a lot on his own time too, which I'm happy about.
Well, it's about time I finish helping my sister get ready for school and head upstairs to start working on my stuff.
