2 gigs this week, fun but, hella tired


Woke up at 6am with leg cramps. went back to sleep, slept late, watched death note on my laptop in bed with Penni it was nice. posted a question on the boards. took a shower. got groceries. ate and Mexicana 1900. uploaded gig pictures and napped on the couch.


Installed the express version of MS SQL enterprise that my coworker discovered. Played the keg and cue with David Stein and the Ravens. Penni Phillip ryan and davey allstar and charlie was there. My old band "Worth" played there about 6 years ago it was strange to go back. There were no homeless people there this time. The PA was tiny but the gig went well. unloaded and ate with penni and scott at Skyland. Penni was terrorizing Scott. It was quite funny.


Played Charlotte's underground with my old buddy Neil's band Broadcasting Silence and 7 days. The first band noodled on guitars at full volume for an hour before they finally opened up the show. Neil's band was really good. Their singer has really improved! our monitors were absolutely chaotic but chuck said the PA mix was good. We did well. crashed late.


Covered the sysAdmin while he was out. Got a call from my boss to Google a manager meeting trivia question. Bought Tennis racket tape to use as stick wrap. Kursty was sick and her voice was totally gone.My Drum rug arrived in the mail. Practiced. made sound check song.


Rested bought pizza for Penni. laid around like a fat slob .wee


Drank a lot of coffee. watched assy mcgee death note guy stuck in internet naruto. got to level 60 on frozen bubble. bought sd module


Ate at Izzys. Fixed traci cdburner and mp3 player. Made a copy of Scott's blonde redhead CD for chuck. We ate sushi at the place by Chuck's house. Went to practice and setup the feedback destroyer on the PA. posted flyers during a break, later the power at practice space died. It was very anti-climatic.

Power Duo.


Slept to noon, went to Panera bread for lunch, then to Target and the grocery store with Penni. Went to Arpa with Penni's parent for her dad's birthday. Tapas = confusion, "how big is that? what to we order? do we share?". later we went to their house and i fixed their Linux windows printer sharing and install the Zip file creator ARK on their Linux laptop. it is nice to be useful. returned and watched naruto and a redbox movie.


Helped my coworker with her first Database, Your first database always looks like hell. It is a learning experience. Played the milestone with Rita's gift as a power 2 piece. It went well moving the bass cabs were a pain. Pics in route. Chuck and Penni were there. Went to Skyland afterwards.


Ate lunch alone to read the loaf and resolve my headache. Practiced, did a fake load in at the practice space to get a rough setup time. 13 minutes, not bad.


practiced. blurry, ...


Started multi-departmental project database thingy for my boss and picked up chicken and cookies for Penni. my chrome 18 inch floor tom is no longer available, the order for that was my xmas last year. :( i always get screwed on holidays...

busy as hell plus 9 shows are booked


Drove to Statesville with Penni and Traci to visit the Parents before their trip on Father's day. we are a Captain's Gallies. My mom said they "re-did" the restaurant and it was really nice. That was a Lie. it was the old tacky fish place plus a couple of new murals about the history of Statesville. We hung out for a while, dropped Traci off and came home. I finally read part 4 of my inner bimbo. Sam Keith is a genius. Went to practice played though the set and did fliers at kinkos for the rest of the night. Scott was freaking out about ant in the space. It was quite funny. "...%^&*$!!!, They are gonna get inside of my amp and chew up the wire and stuff"


Slept late ate lunch at Lupies, watched death note, Naruto, Went with Penni for a long walk to return 'The Reaping'.


Worked, Went to Showmars with the crew. cooked chicken tacos for Penni. watched the movie the reaping.


Brought the Linux Lappy to the practice space and showed Scott creative commons idea for gig flier. He liked it. printed business card.


Finished hacking on the CredByAge.mdb to accept extra fields. Practiced Got new hi hat stand.


Took a long lunch to use up flex time, comic book store. I have the best music in the world on my 40 gig Ipod, i set it on shuffle and every song was a home run.


practiced, i showed Scott the magic of Tremolo plus bass-synth. I am a effects genius, yet I carry the burden of drums, like Atlas with a Dumpster.
