I haven't posted on here in ages by the way, but for some reason I feel compelled to do so tonight. I've been kept awfully busy over the festive period with work; I was in today and i'm in again on Boxing day. I just want a day off to lie about in my pants and play Zelda.
We got a Wii, it's great and my Mii looks scarily like me apparently.
I'm back in Kingask tonight and i'm enjoying the silence. I think Gerard's coming over in a bit, haven't seen him since Findo last played at Felt a few months back.
We are working on a new Otterley EP which should be finished in January. I know it's been taking ages, but it's hard feeling motivated at nights when you work a full time job. I think it's sounding good, I got this new synth which is helping lots:

Hopefully this will make future projects a bit easier cos' I wont have to do as much fiddling to get things sounding good. It's been ages since we've done anything so hopefully people will still be into us, and I hope we do loads next year cos' this year has been pants.

Merry Christmas :)

Remember how we were all going to die from bird flu? What happened to that?

I wish I thought of writing a song about Elvis having premonitions of the September 11th attacks, and divulging them to his still-born twin brother Jesse.

Today Charlie, my cousin Kieran and I went to a car boot sale in Tayport. I remember the last time i'd been was when I was around 11, and I sold off my rather sizeable wrestling figure collection (and promptly bought a Red Hot Chill Peppers 'Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magic' guitar book and 'Keplunk' by Greenday (both of which would be car boot sale fodder to me now, had I still kept them)). Today it was quite lacklustre, I was expecting more old video games and musical stuff, but the journey seemed justified when I stumbled across this:

I did a wee search for it online and supposedly it makes some really cool sounds when the batteries start to run out. The rhythms are brilliant and you can do all manner of chords with the bit on the left. Best thing is it only cost £3. I'm gonna record a song (or maybe an EP) using no other instruments except my Casio PT-30 :).

Does anyone else find it wholly inappopriate that Woolworths sells... [Jun. 19th, 2005|07:23 pm]
[music |'My Neighbor Totoro' Soundtrack]


Encourages people to break the law, surely.

I have something to get off my chest. Last night after the Hazey Janes gig (which was a lot of fun), we went to Tesco, and I purchased a Dire Straits best of. It wasn't even a father's day gift, I bought it for myself. My excuse is that on my favourite christmas ever, when I was about 8, I got a NES and a load of Lego, and my brother got a Dire Straits tape, so it always reminds me of those happy times. Perhaps someone can recommend an obscure electronica album so I can go someway towards redeeming myself  :-). Luckily I managed to resist the temptation of buying a Billy Joel best of, but it really is only a matter of time.
