...for taking the time to bother reading this, and for your comments. I guess Lee hasn't quite got round to setting his blog up. I am about trying to make time to do things rather than looking or trying to find time. I also think its cool when I see bands that I enjoy, put a little effort into communicating with the people that give them the chance to be in a band in the first place, and in all fairness, its no skin off my nose to type a few lines everynow and again right? I'd love to know what James Hetfield is up to these days and where his head is at, for instance. Not that I consider myself on a par with James Hetfield..Hell No...but the comments you guys wrote all pretty much say how cool you think it is that I'm writing, so Ima keep on writing.
And on that note, I've run outta things to say.....haha. No not really, for anyone who knows me, I can talk the ass off of a donkey. Talking of ass...I stuck to my words in my last blog...and did actually get my ass handed to me in the water today. Mikey shit out of surfing today (kidding bro!) so I went it alone. It was grey and a little cold, and to start I had a ball, but it got bigger and I got shitter and took a handful of hammering before sulking back to shore and to my bed. Man, for as much as I love doing it...I suck. guess its true about teaching old dogs new tricks. Mike on the other hand is c c c crazy. For what he lacks in ability, he makes up for with balls. The dudes a deathwish surfer...and regularly has runnings with other surfers in the water. The number of times I have seen mikey smash into some guy, or gal, or take out an entire family with his board... he's just plain mental. I love that about him. The rest of the guys in the band get pissy when mike and I pipe on about surfing. Labelling us as "surfer bum chums" and what not. Fuck 'em. Jealous they are. Haha.
We, pack up the studio in a few days, our work in San Diego is done my friends. We've done some great songs, and for the first time, had fun doing them. They'll probably change alot between now and putting them down on record, but if we made a record of what we have done at this point, I would be stoked. It feels and sounds way more like how we want to be seen and heard. Lets hope we manage to keep that attitude right through the process. Anyhooooo...I got shit to do, and people to see so loves ya and leaves ya. Be good to each other. Look after yourselves, its a dangerous world out there. (i don't quite know where I'm going with this...always found it hard to put the phone down and say bye.)...and....oh..fuck it.
*revised extention - No no no, dont get me wrong, its not that mike is better than me, we are both pretty shit (shit is a relative term), Its just he's crazier than I. Which at times works to his advantage and other times...boy oh boy...its painful to watch the trouble he puts himself into...haha. Plus when I said "what he lacks in ability..he was hurt that I was suggesting he didnt have any. He can surf. In fact for the length of time we been at it, we are RAD! I meant it as a compliment to the size of his balls. ha.
I can't believe I am actually writing this shit out..haha. Can you tell I've had a few beers!! Off out now, Mikes DJing down at the Beauty Bar in San Diego...come along if you can, we'll all be there tearing up the dance floor. OUT.
