i love your art work, did you go to any school. or is it a fuck school situation?
thanks dude. i went to montclair university in new jersey where i essentially learned how to trick unsuspecting people into being in bands with me, that the rave scene is never going away, and how to avoid school work.
I'm just writing to tell you that I'm so excited. I'm very excited about listening to this album. I've downloaded it and I'm very excited to listen to it. NOT THAT I HAVE. BUT!!!!! I'm going to and I'm very very excited about the fact that I'm going to listen to it. Today...well not today because I have so much Mysterious Universe to get caught up on but... maybe later today. Okay...It's 7:33 Am and I'm not sure if I can listen to it now. I have to keep alert.
do you have to keep alert to watch for government conspiracies? i understand. don't be blinded.
i always imagine you sleeping for 1 hour a night and then waking up at 4am screaming, doing jumping jack and high fiving yourself. this comment confirms my suspicions.

Re: well, what can i say. i'm excited too
i'm unsure why big kev needs the speech bubble. i can read the excitement on his face and
oh man so good
like mcdonald's, i'm lovin' it
please note the overuse of apostrophes.
without apostrophes, it would take far too long to say anything.
just downloaded it. i'm also excited to listen to it, but i'm not sure the songs could be nearly as good as your explainations of them. i'm hoping so, though. this makes no sense.
(tell aleks) the cover artwork is awesome.
trust me, they're not. i realized after writing this that i should probably just explain songs in writing without recording them, i might be better at it.
let me know what you think, i'm still waiting for you to post drawings, this shouldn't have been one sentence.
the cover has massively impressed me.
that cover is just...gah...uh...
yeah. i'm going to ask aleks if she can do the cover for the next one before i write or record anything, this way i can try to make the music at least 30% as good.
Glad you included liner notes. I skipped right to the apocalypse is happening because you mentioned the 60s. I'm currently revisiting the sixties which is something that people in their 50s do a lot. I'm doing it in a healthy way though by just focusing on bad science fiction movies and wide spread riots. Plus, the older you get the more decades there are to revisit and it can be an organizational nightmare.
Loved the title track and the title of the title track.
thanks. i'm slightly (incredibly) envious of you as everything i tried to do with my last album you did with your goddamn venus movie.
i don't see why the 60s shouldn't be revisited, society has the same problems, including bad science fiction and wide spread riots.
i've found ignoring the 90s does wonders for organizational memory.
thanks dude, though i didn't even get a glimpse of god's cerebral cortex when i was making this thing. i did have a lot of dreams about talking trees though.
aleks is the uber-talent, i just beg her to do things.
You really showed those Christians! I'll go straight to work forging you a badge of originality!
score! i didn't really say too much about christians this time though.
i was raised catholic, but after reading kirby's new gods comics, i refuse to worship anyone that can't shoot lasers and/or has a chair that flies through space.
So this is what Marcel Proust would've come up with in case he had been a musician. Tonight I am about to write things so this will be a great to accompany me. :)
it's closer to what carrot top would've come up with had he been a musician
but i'll take the proust reference.
enjoy the company.
i like office space too, though i couldn't watch it when i actually had an office job because it made me feel like i was still at work. wizard's office space is not a bad idea.
finally listened to it
I am too busy in my apartment doing nothing for me to listen to music
so I had to wait until I left Iand listen to it on my Ipod
and since I was hiding from the extream cold for the past two days
it took me a while to finally get around to it
I like it
I like the end of the world songs
I do take it personally when you say
"people are so end of the world obsessed, but i wish they would get over it."
thanks dude, i'm really glad you like it.
i didn't really mean it to be offensive. i spend way too much time thinking about apocalypse chic or whatever. it scares me that religious fundamentalists that are horny for the end times have the power to actually make that happen (without the god part) and people actually listen to them. and at the same time smart people are watching zombie movies or mad max-ish things (children of men) and thinking 'ha dude, all the dumb christians will be zombies (or are zombies already) and i'll be all right.' it's two sides of the same thing, people giving up on making things good now. at my most hippie and optimistic, i want people to appreciate life and get over superstitions and things getting fake better and try to make them actually better and at my most realistic and pessimistic i want zombies to eat everyone.
it's complicated and i like i said i think about it a lot, so it keeps on popping up in things i make.
I left the Internet while you were moving because I figured I wouldn't be missing much and now I find THIS days later...
Basically, fuck you man.
It is all awesome.
i'm still around. i realized that if i pack and move during the day and don't sleep i can still squeeze in a couple of important livejournal hours. after today though, i probably won't be around for about two weeks, if you want to attempt to enforce a no internet coolness policy during that time, it would be appreciated.

So...the main reason i haven't been on lj is I have forgotten all 20 passwords I need to log in. And, currently, I am banned from logging for having failed to log=in too many times. Hence the anonymity. I just downloaded the album and can't wait to hear it. I'll have a full length review by the time you are back online.
if this is really you, it's good to hear from you anyway. i think aleks only types 30% of what i ask her to tell you. mostly because it's not funny and makes no sense, but i swear she probably ignored at least two sentences that were absolute gold. let me know what you think. unless you don't like it, of course.
