This weekend was a quite wonderful escape from the stress that is my life these days.|
Friday we saw Watchmen at Imax, which was really fun. I still haven't made up my mind whether I really liked the movie or not, I'm gonna see it again. I enjoyed it, but I guess I wanted more. More of what, I dunno. Oh well. So it goes.
After the show we headed over to Famous Dave's for some delicious BBQ. From there, on to Club Underwear to catch the show. I gave Adam a nice giant phallic squash in response to the banana he gave me for my birthday a while back. I can only hope i get a sweet piece of produce from him when my birthday comes around again this year!
Thosquanta sounded pretty good, but I would appreciate more headbanging from the band, please. It amuses me to watch Adam play solos when he vilifies them so much. Hahah.
The next band was OK, kinda mediocre, I guess. Something was missing, just couldn't put my finger on it. As I told Jenny "I dont know, it's just missing something awesome"
The next band(sorry i don't remember their names)Was better, They had some pretty funny songs about being gothy and vampires and stuff, and the guitar player was shredding like a MOFO, but it seemed like towards the end of their set the music got really melodramatic and the gag ran thin.
Finally IKKI/UCKF played and they kicked ass. We caught half the set before retreating from the club due to exaustion, but it was very good. I like the new songs a lot! Great job guys!
Got together with Geoff on Saturday to go over guitar stuff(it was going to be a band rehearsal but no one else showed!) Damn that guy sure knows how to get the best out of you. I can't wait to work with him recording my own stuff. I feel confidant that after only the short time playing guitar, Ill be ready for the first OBCT show comin up in only a couple weeks!!
In other news, i decided to step down from working on the soundtrack stuff. I have too much else going on right now, and I feel like I'm slowing the project down, I have a lot of stress going on in my life and its affecting my ability to channel the muse to write what i need to write. Its harder then you think, writing music to someone else's vision. Maybe if I knew the guy better it would be different, but I think this whole thing was a great opprotunity at the wrong time. Once i get my "studio" set up to record live instruments and have everything sounding better, I ought to be more prepared. It was a lot of fun, and some of my music that I did do will still appear in the film so that should be fun to hear when I see the finished product.
Thats all for now!
