I haven’t been paying attention for a while, too busy working on stuff. I found this next paragraph as a saved blog entry that I didn’t finish typing up last week.
So there was this discussion about copyright infringement on Facebook that went into donation releases for a second. I crunched the numbers & we’re at over 380,000 downloads from our free/donation only releases. It’s pretty incredible. At the same time it kinda sucks because we’ve only gotten a couple hundred dollars in donations.
Anyway, the Small Life Form show for Experimental Xmas in Greensboro went pretty well. Though the Clang Quartet set that evening was absolutely stellar. I got some photos (I’ll probably just put them on Facebook), but my video camera batteries had gone bad (those rechargeable batteries seem to drain completely left in the camera for a couple weeks, even unused) & I didn’t bring my recorder, so no audio.
Been working trying to get some more things done for finishing up the comics I did last month & this month is slipping away too fast. Guess that’s how things tend to go.
Working things up for the Drekka Soundsystem release for the 5 in 5 series & doing some audio engineering work today. We’ll see how it goes.
Trying to get the new issue of Just A Man laid out today & start printing out the comics to send out to subscribers. A lot of work to do these days….
Here’s a Christmas song from Jon DeRosa (Aarktica):
Here’s a random track from mwvm:
Last Night’s Dreams:
I wake up next to my girlfriend in an emergency shelter & we decide to go outside in the woods to make out. I’m walking a few feet behind her & my body starts to feel lighter & lighter. The moment I notice my feet are off the ground I feel hands grab my ankles & turn me upside down & upwards. I’m trying to scream for help, but I can’t get the words out. I start flailing my arms trying to get breath into me & eventually I get a scream out from 25 feet above the ground & there’s nothing she can do anyway.
I’m on a train with a group of revolutionaries planning to blow up a bridge because they think a train is most free when it’s off the tracks. I’m not sure that they are right.
It’s so hot in the church that I take my shirt off. I forget that I have it off until I’m getting in line for communion. When I get to the priest I recognize him. He’s a dead man. I fall to my knees to receive the body of Christ.
I’m hungry & I put in a piece of gum to hold me over & I keep putting more pieces in as I get hungrier & hungrier until I have a ball of gum so big I can’t chew it or even spit it out. I’m going to choke & die.
At a comic shop I find a copy of Avengers #200 for a quarter & I buy it for Nick Marino.
