I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was small, but delicious
and we had leftovers for about a week. Yum!
Not much happened with bn9 in November.
I think the band rehearsed once. It was a nice break, but I'm
ready to get back to work! Marco and I are out of control trying
to book festivals for 2006. We plan to travel as far as Florida,
if they'll book us, but mainly, if they'll pay us. I'm upset
with myself for focussing so much on earning money playing,
but no one in the band is independently wealthy and gas does
Marco and I went to see the Radiators perform at Mexicali Blues.
It was a great show and I learned something from it... I learned
that downtime between songs is really annoying, as I suspected.
They played just about every song back to back with no chitter
chatter whatsoever. I'm thinking of getting an electroshock
control machine with nodes attached to Jack, and every time
he putzes between songs, he'd get a shock which would trigger
his brain to just start the next freakin' song! Heh... ok, I'm
really not THAT crazy or sadistic and he's not that bad, but
it does annoy me at times.
I've got a
solo show on December 10th... my first ever. It's going to be
great... this band is smoking. I hope you'll come. Here's the

years... I don't know. I'm not good at time frames.) Our next
show is in February, so you need to come out and welcome her
