Happy Super Tuesday! The above picture is a touch screen, my friends,
and I'm happy to report that I voted in style. Right now Matt and
Jamie are reading magazines, Danny and Seth are discussing dinner
options, and I'm typing this out as we all wait at the airport for our
flight to Dublin.
"Our flight to Dublin." Such a nice sentence.
I hope you've all been well! A confession: I'm still frightened by
phone posting. I like having the whole post in front of me. I like
going through google image searches and youtube threads. This... is
different. My proofreading is shakier, the content a little loose.
But but but. I haven't been at a computer in over a week and - I'm
guessing - any post is better than no post... even if the days of drum
playing gorilla embedded videos have been temporarily suspended.
Please forgive! And thanks for reading.
The anticlimatic news.. if you've been to our myspace (also woefully
We're going on tour with Aloha! One of our favorite bands
(honestly)... and maybe the first instance of our touring with a band
that we LOVE that we really don't have a relationship with. Think of
one of your favorite bands - maybe you've seen them once - but you
really have no connection to them except for hitting play on your
iPod. Now imagine touring with that band for a few weeks this spring.
Not a bad daydream, right?
(imagine that I just posted a video of their live show)
(I will get over this! I promise! I just need to get into the habit)
So yes, an Aloha/Anathallo tour after SXSW. Excellent.
And good news! The cd will be out ______! And we're naming it ______!
I'm sorry - I wish I had the answers... hopefully soon! We just got an
e-mail from _______ and that would be exciting if they wanted to put
out the record in the states. And Big Scary Monsters will be releasing
the Hana 4/Entropy vinyl any day now overseas. We're ecstatic to be
part of their family and can't wait to meet everyone.
Sad news that I hate to break so casually: it sounds like The Format
broke up today. It's over on their myspace - hopefully if you're a fan
of theirs you had already heard and I'm not the bearer of bad news.
Old tourmates June broke up over the weekend, too. So strange.
A bit of great news for me and good news for you:
I HAVE THE NEW COLOUR REVOLT RECORD.
ALL TEN TRACKS.
THEY ARE INCREDIBLE.
I'm excited for you all to hear it... but, to be honest, I'm probably
more excited that it keeps me company on train rides now.
Sorry to my scrabulous friends, I haven't been able to play a move all
week (and for the next two). Patience?Please?
I think that's it. Wolf Blitzer keeps showing up on the airport
television but I know he won't have the primary results until after
we're already in the air. C'mon Wolf... I KNOW you have those exit
He's taunting me.
I should go.
P.S. Blarney Stone here we come!
