Burning Flag Birthday Suit
A big mushroom and turkey omelete is a good way to start the day.
So my total intake of CMW events this years was ZERO. There were a few that I had earmarked, but other things came up both Friday night (Shameless reading) and last night (Kate’s 25th birthday – happy birthday!). I am still planning on hitting the Salteens/Sekiden matinee at the 360 this afternoon, but I wouldn’t be amazed if I went back to sleep instead. Sundays are made for sloth. And I’m not just talking about the dude from The Goonies.
While at Kate’s party, there were some band discussions about the in-progress album, and it was decided that things would move a lot faster if we made it an EP. Never mind working harder, we’ll just lower expectations! But seriously, I think it’d be a much more effective work if kept shorter and concise. And yeah, we’ll be able to get it done and out that much sooner. We’re also trying to get some shows organized for the Spring – I’ll plug those when things are more concerete.
I also heard some of the new Modest Mouse last night – now I’d filed them under the “I’ll never understand this” category a few years ago when I owned a copy of The Lonesome Crowded West and simply could not get into it, but I was surprised how much better the new stuff sounded to my ears. I’m not saying there’s going to be any sort of epiphany, but I may have to give them another chance.
