I just remembered something not previously mentioned — what about that band I started with Matt Laurence? We called it “Visions of the Vegetable”, after our “Pickle Cult.” We actually released more than one entire tape of original songs, which we never got back. Someone from SVHS probably still has one of those tapes. Anyway…
I need to learn to save money. The reason I felt this was important enough to write down is this: I COULD be happy with my life as it is right now. I have my music, my movies, my computer, my job, etc. I REALLY don’t need anything else. I will be content to live[...]
Rehearsal & drinking at Joe’s — try many other, harder songs from discs I’ve made.
Yesterday, work went okay, and we left an hour early. I spent some time listening to music and organizing my computer music files, and converting old documents to Word97.
On the 8th (Sunday), besides messing around the apartment & watching TV, I went to Joe Hammond’s house and practiced vocals from the disc I had burned for Joe a couple of weeks ago. We brainstormed band names, some of which are: Brainstorm, Nero’s Gunss, Low Gear, Cheap Hotel, Huh?, Fully Automatic, Tattooed Fools From[...]
While Joe H & I practiced vocals and he played bass (on his keyboard) at his house, we started making a list of possible names for our band. The following list is a brainstorm list; we don’t know if any of the names have been taken already. (Note: Guns N Roses had only two people[...]
Picked Joe up at 12:00 (noon), and drove to Shawnee, to Music Unlimited. There, we priced guitars, bass guitars, amplifiers, etc. Then we went to Book Barn, where I bought another book of Jim Morrison poetry, and we stopped by Studio 99 in Seminole, but they were closed. I’m still trying to think of a[...]
Woke up just before noon. Typed in journal, listened to Ozzfest Summer Sampler, then went to Joe’s house. I saw the work Joe had done in Russell & Devon’s room — looked nice. Then Joe & I played through our entire “band CD”, singing along & talking occasionally. Charline & Russell listened in the whole[...]
Friday (the 29th), I went in to Wrangler & picked up my paycheck & bought cigarettes & Dr. Pepper. Saturday, I went to Joe’s in the afternoon & talked for a few minutes, about my vacation & about his plan to paint & decorate his boys’ room (he found out Charlene is carrying a boy[...]
Watch 2 DVDs w/Joe & Charlene; drink two 6-packs of “ice”; practice music while Joe paints.
