|Yeah, not the prettiest thing |
but I'd rather see this than what it
must have looked like when it was open

I've never been in a serious accident in my life until a little less than two weeks ago. I guess it wasn't too serious (well actually it was) but I remember thinking to myself while they were operating on me in the hospital how one minute you can be totally fine, and 10 minutes later you might just be surrounded by doctors preparing to sew 34 stitches into your lower back for a "stab wound". No, I wasn't actually stabbed but that's the status they told me it falls under. In fact, they kept asking me "how did this happen?" and I honestly didn't know.

Yep, we got some new band members. They aren't necessarily human though. In case you didn't already know, Ivan is a major keyboard junkie and he quickly falls in love with the right set of keys. He has an obsession with some very specific keyboards from the 1980's, and well, he recently got these sweet babies. Well, they actually aren't babies since they're so old...well wait, one of them IS a baby...check em out.
Paul: Oh yeah, so this last one isn't a keyboard...when Ivan gets birthday gifts for his friends, he tends to defy all expectations. Well, this past year, when I opened up Ivan's gift, there was a little rat in it. I was flabbergasted to say the least...and I thought to myself, "Wow, a rat! Cool! Thanks Ivan!" So the rat grew, and eventually one day, through the biological process of metamorphosis, it became a little dog. A close contender for a name was Elvis, but he ended up being named Truman. And now, he wags his little stump-tail when we rock out in the practice space. He'll play bass in the band when he's old enough to get into the bars (he's only 6 months old currently).
Reminder folks - our first show in over 6 months is this Tuesday night, February 12 at Empty Bottle! It just so happens to be our favorite music venue AND it just so happens to be a free show! But it's ONLY free if you RSVP by clicking this link and following the instructions on the page. You MUST RSVP before midnight on Monday night, February 11 in order to avoid paying an $8 cover. Sorry for all the capitalized words, but we'd love to see you at the show, and we'd hate to see you pay a cover if you don't have to. See you Tuesday night!
