Blah, blah, Blah
Hello all you out there in internet land....STOKED!
I left that essential word out of the last post apparently, so i thought I'd start off strong and make up for past mistakes. I don't have much to tell you about what's been going on in the studio...same old stuff. Tomorrow marks week six here...and I am bored out of my mind. Ryan and I are watching game 6 of the NBA finals...I'm going for the Pistons 'cause i'm not too fond of Texas...blame the current administration for that. The Dixie Chicks are even ashamed be natives.
Last Friday was amazing. We used a 15 piece string section on 3 songs and added a wind and brass section to them on another. I got to play piano on a song with them, I was kinda nervous, but made it through...it all turned out amazing. Sean conducted everything...and he looked liked a master ninja composer. He turned all of the songs into motion picture masterpieces.....what a beast.
This weekend was alright too. I saw Batman Begins on Friday...STOKED!! it was awesomely radical...go see it. I saw Sum 41 play a show here in LA at a guitar center "Guitarmageddon" as they called it. 10 contestants from all over the US competing for some prize. This one dude played his guitar like a piano..there were some old dudes playing acoustic guitar solos..pretty rad. Sum 41 rocked as well. After that we went to a bar where Sean through a string celebration for our friends Rodney and Christine who have been working very hard with us on making these songs complete. Sunday (Happy Father's day to me from my doggie) was spent at my girlfriends family's house down in Orange County...I didn't know anybody so i drank margaritas all day. That night I went to Bad Religion at the House of Blues here in Hollywood...STOKED! I take back any "best band live" question I have ever answered...I think they beat out the likes of Billy Joel and Ben Folds and Elton John...and whatever other epic person/band I have ever seen live. They are truly amazing...and get me everytime. So that's that. I'm going back to my basketball game. Hope all of you are having a great summer or life or whatever you are having right now...maybe a great coke float or even margarita. Go check out your local Warped Tour show as it passes through your area...and go check out takeoverrock.com...my friend Ben doesn't know how to spell too well...not even my last name...not stoked.
It's M-O-S-E-L-Y dammit!!!!
Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time
