phanny pack

Here's something funny: *
* = The prospective theory of interplanetary sound is actually an idea that somehow sound and weight are interrelated and that sounds sound different on different planets and that there is possibly one key of the universe that all songs must be written in. This idea is transferred into this 12 tone composition.

Check this out:

All ya'll who like art and want to buy some and put it on their wall:
This is my sister's shop where she sells a lot of her stuff. Go buy some of her designs! They are fit for any budding apt. or bachelor pad or even grandma-condo!

Check out my pal Tyler, a.k.a, "PHILLIP OSKAR AUGUSTINE."
His track "Internal Combustion," is killing the whole internet right now. And he's got a cd coming out too! Cool!

And here's my pal Joel, and his blog. He always posts / twwwts sites and videos and whatnot, but I had to mention it today because he said some really nice things about me! Thanks!

I've been recording so much lately. Bound to post one of those things one of these days...

Pizza What? Pizza Hut!

Every time we go to pizza hut (I don't know why we go there, its awful), we have the same server and its this awfully CREEPY LADY. She's like at least 40 something, but dresses like a teenager and always mentions how we're the "most handsome youngest boys to ever walk in." And she gets all the food wrong. And the food tastes like soap. And it makes me want to puke. I freaking hate Pizza Hut (sorry meg).

Yesterday we spent the afternoon in Brady's new empty house. We recorded a series of awkward songs in one track thing. I'll post pictures later (of the bathroom-studio). So here is the long awaited "I LIKE TOUCHIN' DOGS." Also featured in this medley is a song called "Little Children," and a special guest appearance (Charlie) reciting his "The Story of the Ched 'R' Pepper." The mix is awful and you'll be weirded out. Its also like ten minutes long.

Oh hey! It snowed here yesterday! Weird! That's never happens! It was a lot fun! It kind of sucked!

Oh here's something cool: I torrented a version of Sibelius 5 yesterday! For free!

Now I can be just like Tyler Dunn!

Weekend Wallabee

I saw of Montreal in Asheville yesterday. I wish I (or any of us) took some pictures. It was totally magical. I've seen a lot of shows but that one was definitely one of the craziest. They had a live video behind them and flashed green lights that worked as a green screen, staged a priest molesting a kid, and also crucified Kevin Barnes.

Asheville's a totally cool city. I saw ads at the venue for Yeasayer being there on a monday in April, and then Vampire Weekend and Abe Vigoda there the tuesday right afterwards. Planned on skipping school and going but... one's 18+ and Vampire Weekends already sold out, obviously.

Realized what the scariest things in fast food were this weekend... CHED 'R' PEPPERS.

I had an old 16" crash cymbal from an old CB drumset. Brady and I buried it under a pile of bricks in Chapin, SC like 6 months ago, and we just dug it up yesterday. Its kind of cool, it sounds darker, and has a lot more discoloration.

We renamed it the "GN8 special custom dark big splash," and will sell it on eBay for at least $900.

My omnichord's currently being fixed. Yay.

There was a football game on today; I guess it was a big one. Fun weekend nonetheless.
