Google words like PLUNGER and SLINKY and GIVE ME BEER..

..and see if this page comes up. You never know.

I'm moving in a few days, so I thought now would be a good time to type up this post. And no, I'm not telling you where I'm moving to.. I don't need forty-seven thousand people from the internet knocking on my door, asking if I can come out to play. Sorry, kiddies.

This is going to be quite the experience for me, considering that I've never really been out on my own.. even though I'll have a roomie. I've fallen in love with the apartment and I can't wait to add my personal touches to it. I can't take all my junk with me though. I wish I could.

Make sure you pay a visit to this week's ad space renter, Scooter McGavin's 9th Green. At first I thought it was a golf blog, but then I checked it out and found that it has a lot of cool media stuff. It's worth the visit.

Okay, guys. I've got a lot of packing and shtuff to do. Later!

What is it with bass players?

Last night was interesting. J and I went down to Joker's Wild in Ogdensburg, PA for a show. Three bands played that night and I met a lot of cool people.

The show had a late start because the band that was originally scheduled to go first (Something Grey) had a late vocals guy, and wound up in the second position.

Kung Fu Jesus, the band that played first (in the picture) was very good. They were heavier than the other two bands and I liked their style of playing. I'd definitely go to more of their shows.

And when Agony Hill started up, just about everyone in the bar went nuts. People were pushing to the front of the stage and dancing like crazy. Despite the fact that a couple chicks were totally invading my personal space, I had a great time.

I just noticed something.. What is it with bass players? With every band I've met and talked to, it's always the bass player that I wind up chatting with the most. It's like I'm a bass man magnet or something. The top four people I've talked with last night were all bass players- Jason (my band's bass dude), Joe (Agony Hill), Yogi (Kung Fu Jesus), and Dave (Something Grey). What the hell?

Yes, we are odd. I know it, you know it, everyone knows it.

Even my 9-year-old sister has used our names with the word "retard" recently.

At least we're having fun.

We're taking a little break from the music right now, building our contact list and getting ready for a long, tiring stretch of practices. Everyone needs some time to goof off now and then, and now is our turn. (It's going to be a beautiful, sunny Saturday on the roof with beer and music. Yes, the roof. This is our Memorial Day weekend.)

Go visit this week's blog, A Yoga Coffee Outlook. It's a fairly popular blog and I enjoy reading it.

So what's on my agenda for today? Well, I've got to dye my hair again.. I've got about an inch of light blonde roots because I've been far too lazy to do anything about it. And I need to get some more cold medicine. I've had a sore throat and runny nose for a couple days now. It sucks. But all in all, it's going to be a pretty lazy day. I have no obligations. I'm free to be the idiot that I am.

How about a snorkel and an avocado?

People in this town just have no sense of humor whatsoever. I cannot understand it. Maybe they don't like metal freaks.. who knows?

We're still looking for guitarists. And drummers. (My god, this is annoying the crap out of me!) But what can I do? I'm making new contacts every few days.. people in other bands. Many have offered to help us out in finding musicians, and I appreciate that, but I'm still riding that fence between composure and insanity. Or maybe I'm just impatient.

We've also been working on a couple songs that we've yet to come up with names for. They're.. interesting. I'll put it that way. I've got a crapload of ideas, but because of our lack of musicians, we can't put all of them into action.

And again with the frustration. It's one big circle.

Ever notice that life revolves around circles? Our emotions and life events can be compared to circles in one way or another. The earth is a circle. (Okay, it's a SPHERE.. but still, just work with me.) CD's are circles. Most dishware take on the form of circles. The wheels on our cars are circles. I think I have made my point.

Heptagons are completely left out of the loop. Is it weird to feel bad for them? HEPTAGONS HAVE FEELINGS, TOO!

Go check out the ad space renter- Workout4Bloggers. It has cool little exercises and plenty of health facts for lazy computer people like me.

And reading over this, I've come to the conclusion that I should not be blogging with a buzz..

"..and so you get the full effect of my asscheeks rattling."

Thank you, Jason. I could have lived without that remark.

Okay, guys. I have a confession to make. I'm still using Christmas cookie stamps to mail out my phone bills. Why? Because I think they're cute.. Not really. I just don't do much as far as the post goes. And the way I'm going, I'll still be using those stamps next December.

On a different note, we've been working on our music and stuff. Still looking for a replacement guitarist though. Hopefully we'll find the guy soon.

That reminds me (and I don't know why!).. I have to go over to J's place and take a shower yet again today before I have to go to work in the evening. The mother shut off all the hot water in the house at the beginning of the week and only turns it on to do dishes and take a shower. Unfortunately for me, I am never home at those times and get screwed out of a hot shower. And so I have to travel ten minutes down the road with my towel, lavender body wash, clothes, and man deoderant because I don't know a thing about plumbing.

And now is the time I ask myself why I'm posting such useless information for the world to read. I don't know.. I have nothing better to write about.

Shower time.

"Well, you can't kill a hotdog.."

We broke through our small bout of laziness yesterday.

We pulled out my newest set of lyrics (which was chewed slightly by J's dog) and WHABAM! Within an hour, we had something.. almost an entire song. How frickin' awesome is that? I'm proud of that one.

Go check out Got Lyrics!, this week's blog ad space renter. It's a great music news blog with, of course, lyrics. So YO, CHECK IT OUT, DUDE!

I've also made some major changes to the website over the past week. (Forgot to mention that one.) The entire color scheme is different, along with the main links and features.

We're also looking for a new guitarist, guys. Anyone in the Penn-York valley looking for a metal band? Send an email to

"I like shaking my buckets."

I went up to Maley's in Corning on Saturday night with Jason to watch Agony Hill play, and it was a pretty cool night. I made a few new friends, danced a bit, and we may have found ourselves a replacement guitarist. Or something of that sort. I guess a couple guys from the band are going to talk to some people for us. Hopefully. It helps to know people who know lots of other people.

I'm STILL tired from that night. And today is Tuesday.

And then after a freaky event last night, I've got something big in my mind. One of those things that makes for an awesome song. I won't say what it is here, but I will say that a very twisted song may come out of it. Watch for it.

Oh yeah, make sure you check out the new ad space renter, Rocky Jay. The guy's got a thing for women's asses, but his blog IS quite entertaining. And he seems like a pretty cool guy. Good sense of humor.

So what's on the agenda today? I have to run to the bank, hit up the store for some black hair dye and plastic forks, do some writing (hopefully an entire set of lyrics), pick up the sister from school, and then I'll probably be going over to J's place for a while. Busy.
