We're rocking so hard it was raining ash.

Or maybe it was the giant fires and the Santa Ana's that did that.. who's to say really. I rode up to the Potholder this morning to meet up with Portugal to have some breakfast. They're in town on tour so we got down. I had to make up for the fact that I totally bailed on their Chain show last night, because I was Leisure King. And now we return to practicing and writing and chillin in our purple rehearsal studio. Somehow our short 3 day trip to Boston last week really took it out of us.. that was a tough little trip but the show was pretty fun so I'd say it was worth it, but I had some pretty good musical ideas while I was watching cooking shows on the plane. Where the hell is my brain right now...I'm not even gonna go back and fix that ridiculously stupid run-on sentence which I'm kind of even adding to right now.

This is my desk


I think I'm losing my mind because I've been recording and glued to the Triton all day.. that little lcd touch screen and the beeps it makes while you try and mold something out of the crappy preset sounds in there really twist my head. I sometimes feel like I'm gonna have battery acid bleeding out of my eyes wile I watch some sort of circuit board slowy take over my out for ladytigerblade.

My cpu is not stoked on 20 tracks of drums

Hey dude! Glad to see some swedish tunes man;)

I got a humble question for you. Do you or anyone you know, know anything about California State University in Long Beach?

I am thinking about going there next year to study some English, German, Litterature etc... I wanna be at the place where everything is going down! No, but seriously I dig the beach and the fact that long beach has 300 sunny days per year!!! And the music scene and the vibe you seem to have there is amazing. (I know Long Beach is big and everyone can not be cool).

If you know anyone slighty decent that could bare an inherent next autumn tell me because I will need cool people to hang with, even though you are old haha.
