much to say, but I started recording a band called Senior Citizen
from Mansfield this week (started on December 20th). Been having
a lot of fun just getting practice in recording and mixing/fixing.
Got to try out all of my new recording gear as well. Christmas is
coming up, so I'm sure I'll have some new pictures for you all!
I'll snap some pictures when recording as well.
Oh! I forgot to mention that my cousin Brent & Pink got married
on October 12th. It was a drunken good time for almost all involved
(me included). Would have loved to have pictures from the after-party.
LOL. I'll post some pictures soon, when I do the Christmas update.
Me and my little sister Lindsay saw Sevendust, Stereomud, and Cinder
on December 18th! That was the first show I've ever been to where
all of the opening bands kicked ass as well as the headliners! Cinder
and Stereomud really took me by surprise. I am now fans of both.
Sevendust put on what was probably the best live show I've ever
seen. I wrote a review of the show which I submitted to Sevendust.com.
Stereomud, and Cinder - 11/18/02 Columbus, Ohio
All three bands were amazing. I was really surprised by
both Cinder and Stereomud, because I had only heard the
single "Soul Creation" by Cinder, and "Pain"
and "Breathing" by Stereomud, and both bands were
great! Usually when I go to concerts, the opening bands
don't impress me, but both of these guys ruled! I will definatly
check out more of their material and see them live again
next time around. Cinder were a great hard rock/metal band,
and the singer reminds me a lot of Layne Staley, which is
cool. Clint got onstage with Stereomud and did some song
with "Jesus" in the title. I don't remember the
song title but I think it's new. It sounded badass with
three guitars, and Clint did the backing vocals as well.
Sevendust opened with "Black" and then went into
"Denial"...I couldn't believe how great they sounded
live. This was my first time seeing them. I was happy to
see that Lajon was in good spirits, as was the rest of the
band. I forget the order of the rest of the tracks, but
they did "Trust," "Shine," "Redefine"
which was slightly faster than the album version, and the
moshers went crazy. They did "X-mas Day," "Rumblefish,"
"Praise," "Angel's Son," (Lajon dedicated
it to his little brother and started crying during the song...was
a really emotional moment for everyone there I think)..."Crucified",
and they did "Bitch" last. I don't think anyone
left the Newport Music Hall disappointed!
What have I been up to
since November? Well...I recorded a kickass thrash band called Melodicdeath
and I am looking for new bands to record, this time for money! That's
honestly about it, I've done nothing. Going to college, in Geology,
Self Effectiveness, and African American History: Slavery To Emancipation
(can you say, 'lack of options'?). Slept through New Years...spent
countless boring hours redesigning www.BlackLabelSociety.net...and
that's about it. I miss Aje a lot, and haven't seen her since the
Bratwurst Festival. So I spend my time being bored and having no
