It's been literally forever since we've updated this site.  For some random reason today, I was on our site reading through some of our old posts, which I haven't done since they were written, when I realized hey, today is the 10 year anniversary of our website... crazy!  I mentioned the decade anniversary to Marc, and within a half hour, he emailed me a diary entry to post on the site.  So here we are, 10 years later! -Mario

Hey everyone, what's crackalackin?!! How's the Christmas shopping coming along??? I've been living at the Mission Viejo Mall for the past two days now. Tomorrow I'll be going to South Coast Plaza. I like that mall so much around this time.

Well we have some pretty great news! A music supervisor from an MTV show got in touch with us and said he wants to use our new songs in future episodes!!! He already cut "The Breaking of My Heart" into an episode, and he's trying to get the vocal intro to "The Long Goodbye" in there too. We're totally excited! We'll let you know dates and all that good stuff when we get them.

As for sales of our new songs, we've been struggling to keep up with the demand for the CD. We're burning them and sending them off just as fast as we can! If you haven't yet gotten your copy, read the last news post for details on how to order.

That's it for now!!! Merry Christmas!!!!


  Nov. 21, 2004
The wait is over... it's finally here, and just in time for Christmas! Our brand new songs are finally available for your listening pleasures! :) For now, the only way to get your hands on them is to buy a CD. What we're doing is adding the 3 new songs to the "Memories Made, Times Forgotten" album (which already has 15 songs on it), so there are going to be a whopping 18 songs total... for your listening pleasures of course. That's over an hour of music! But wait, there's more! With your order, we'll write you a little personalized thank you note on the CD sleeve. And if you order within the next 5 minutes, we'll even include a handsome paper carrying case to protect your valuable purchase. Actually, even if you order after 5 minutes, we'll go ahead and throw that in anyway. What can I say... we care about our fans. :) So don't delay, order your copy now... here's how:

Send $5 cash (well concealed, like wrap it in paper. The postman is human too you know!!!) to:

Drowning Fish
P.O. Box 7034
Laguna Niguel, CA 92607-7034

Please tell us it's for the "18 song CD." If you don't, we'll think you're trying to buy 5 of our $1 CDs, and we'll send you 5 of our $1 CDs... which don't include the brand spanking a** new songs. So to recap, $5 CONCEALED cash with a note saying “18 SONG CD.” Girls, feel free to throw in any old polaroid of yourself. Hell, feel free to throw in two! It won't get your order shipped out any faster, but it might get you a little hand-drawn smiley. Tempting I know.  -Marc

Sept. 21, 2004
Hey everyone!  Well it took us a lot longer than we expected, but we finally have our three new songs finished and in our hands.  We can't wait for you guys to hear them!!!  In the last news post, I mentioned that we'd be done on Aug. 27th.  Obviously that didn't happen.  What did happened was we needed a few extra hours, so went back on the 31st.  With our luck though, some studio equipment wasn't working right, so they sent us home and rescheduled us for Sept 15th... Marc's birthday.  It was a couple weeks away, but ended up making a great B-day gift.  Anyway, we're finally done and really happy with how the songs sound.  Stay tuned for news on how to get your hands on the new songs.  We'll keep you posted!  -Mario

:  August 19, 2004
Hey guys, what’s up?  Hope you're all doing good!  We'll have three new songs posted on the site by the end of the month. We were planning to finish up at the studio on the 11th, but of course things always take longer than we expect. We’re going back on the 27th, and we’ll hopefully be done then. We’ll let you know how it goes.  -Mario

:  July 31,2004
It's the end of July... my favorite month.  Actually this year, I liked June better, but anyway... We're going to have our three new songs posted on this site mid August.  We were in the studio the 21st and 23rd and have everything done except for mixing.  We're going back on August 11th to finish it all up... lets hope!

Our plan is to record more often and post them all on our site.  We have a ton of songs that we've always wanted to record but never have.  We're even thinking of recording acoustic versions of songs from our last CD.  That should be fun!  -Mario

  June 23, 2004
Hey guys... hope your summer is starting out great.  Make it the best you can because it's the only summer of 2004 you'll ever have. Turn off the TV, computer, and what ever else sucks time out of your life and enjoy this moment.  When you look back on your life so many years from now, you're not going to remember the times you spent on the couch or in front of your computer screen... it's the moments you spent with your friends and family you'll cherish most.  Make it your best life...

We should have three new songs posted on this site about the third week of July.  We were in the studio all day Friday and recorded the lead guitar and bass.  We also recorded vocals for "The Long Goodbye" and half of another song we yet have a name for.  For now we're calling that song "Down of Love" only because those are the first three words of the song.  We need a title.  -Mario
June 17, 2004
Hey everyone!  It's summer time again... and we're kicking it off with three new songs!  We were in the studio all day Tuesday laying down drum and guitar tracks.  On Friday we're going back to record some more.  We'd like to finish with everything on Friday, but we'll probably need one more day.  We'll be putting up the songs on the site as soon as we have them done.  You can check out the lyrics to our new songs on the Music page.  They are the last three songs on the page.  I'll let you guys know how much we get done on Friday. -Mario

May 19, 2004
Hey guys!  We just updated our Picture page with 34 new photos.  Most of them are from the High School Invasion Tour we did last year. -Mario

May 17, 2004
Hey everyone... we need more updates don't we?!  Is everyone ready summer?  Summer of '04... sounds like a good song title.  Well anyway I updated our Releases page with two new compilations we're on.  One put out by Broken Line Records which includes a track by Yellowcard and a bunch of other bands.  The second comp we're on is put out by Peephole Records and is a double CD which includes tracks by The Queers, Groovie Ghoulies, Teen Idols, The Norma Jeans, Moral Crux, Gatsbys American Dream and a bunch of others.

We're going to be recording three new songs very soon.  When we have them done, we'll be posting them on this site. -Mario

April 29, 2004
What's up guys?  Just wanted to let you know that we put up a high quality version of our "Lonely Hearts" video.  It's about 55 megabytes, so it kinda big, but hopefully worth the wait.  You can find it on our Music page.  Hope you like it! -Mario

April 12, 2004
Hey guys!  Any fans here from South America?  Lazypunk Records will be distributing our CD "Memories Made, Time Forgotten" in Colombia.  The CD will also include our song "Take Me Away" as a bonus track.  You can view the album cover of our Colombian released CD here. -Mario

April 11, 2004
HAPPY EASTER!!!  I hope the Easter Bunny brings you all that you asked for... or is that Santa's job???  I get them confused.  Anyway, we updated the lyrics to our newest song... which is still untitled.  During midnight Easter service I did try thinking of titles, but it was hard to come up with anything cuz I couldn't concentrate with the choir yapping in the background. ;)~  Anyway, we thought the song wasn't really all that it could be, so we added two new verses to it.  We stuck the new verses where the old 3rd and 4th verses were, and made those old verses 5th and 6th instead.  Get it???  Anyway, I hope you like it.  Read them here and let us know what you think!!! -Marc   

March 12, 2004
Well we have one more song to add to the collection.  We just came up with the tune last Tuesday, March 2, and have the lyrics pretty much done.  We just need two more lines for the second verse.  Also, we might end up adding two more verses, but that might make the song too long… so we’re still thinking about it.  This is one of the 3 or 4 songs we’ll be recording very soon, so stay tuned!  I hope you like it!!! -Marc

March 7, 2004
Hey everyone, what's going on??? Not much here... just listening to some Bright Eyes and writing. Well, it's been a little while since we last updated, but not much has been going on besides preparing to record the 3 or 4 songs we'll soon be recording. Lyrics to "The Breaking of My Heart" have been revised, so you might want to check them out. We added 8 lines to the ending chorus, and changed one of the verses. Let us know what you think! -Marc

Jan. 19, 2004
What's up guys?  I just added downloadable mp3's of all our songs to the music page.  We used to have our songs on, but now that they're gone I figure we might as well add them directly to our site.  The next thing I want to do is add a good quality version of our
"Lonely Hearts" music video.  For now you can stream it here. -Mario

Dec. 31, 2003
Well it's the last day of 2003 and I just wanted to write and say hi.  I hope this next year is great for everyone.  Thanks to our fans for all your support and for listening to our music! -Mario

Dec. 5, 2003
Hey guys!  How's your December coming along?  Things here are going good.  If you haven't heard, as of Dec. 2, is gone.  Damn, I really liked that site!  I always liked checking out new bands on there, and it was a great way to get our music out too.  Our songs have been downloaded 75,756 times!  But life goes on.  Since our songs aren't on anymore, I'll be uploading them to this site within the next few days. -Mario

I went to Blink's "Dolla Bill" show at The Palace (Avalon) last night!  I was so excited cuz I wanted to go so bad and thought I wasn't going to be able to, but Brent, once again, came through with a ticket.  I was right up front and it was so awesome!!!  Thanks Brent-- I totally appreciate it.  You're the best!!!! -Marc

I GOT THE NEW BLINK 182 ALBUM!!!  I got it yesterday, a whole 5 days before it's officially released.  I'm listening to track 14 now... I love this song.  The album is a little sad, but I love it.  It's mostly different, but all good.  Anyway, just thought I'd write and try to make y'all just a little jealous. :) -Marc

Well I finally got around to posting the diary I wrote last week.  Read her and weep.  I'll be writing another diary and getting it up on the site hopefully by tomorrow.  And just to let you know, the video is almost ready for your eyes to feast on.  So stay tuned... -Marc

Well the music video for "Lonely Hearts" has been shot, and now all we have to do is wait to get it. It may not be until Christmas or so, so it's gonna be a while. But when it comes in, you'll be the first to know! And yes, we'll be streaming it from the site for all you kiddos with the rich parents and high speed internet access. As for shows, we can't wait to get out there again and tear up the stage... and we will be soon enough. But right now, we're working on some behind-the-scenes stuff like writing, preparing for the studio, trying to get girlfriends... you know, important things. Anyway, I better get going... I'm only on the "C's," in my little black book. Alright, I can't lie-it's actually a phone book. But it can't hurt pretending. -Marc 

Oct. 1, 2003
y people, how ya doin???  Life is busier than hell right now, but I always have time for you… my little peoples.  We’re shooting our very first video this weekend!  Jason and Jaspre, two film students (not to mention really cool people) will be shooting it.  And then we have Ashley… “The Girl.”  Every video has to have one of those.  Anyway, just wanted to let you know about two additions to the site.  The first one is the lyrics to our latest song, “The Long Goodbye.”  It’s a song about long goodbyes.  Read it and let us know what you think.  We’ll be recording it very soon!  The second is a picture of my newest heartbreaker… Rachel Bilson.  You know… Summer from Fox’s “The OC.”  She’s pretty dang hot.  It’s probably the worst picture in the world of me, and if it weren’t for her being in it, I would have had it burned.  I actually thought about cropping myself out of it, but I knew some girls would cry, so I decided what the hell.  The sacrifices I make.  Anyway, that’s about it.  Until next time!!! -Marc

Sept. 10, 2003
Me again!  Yesterday was pretty crazy.  I went to a cast party that Fox's "The OC" was throwing, and that place was a freaking madhouse!  I got to meet almost the whole cast, including Josh Schwartz... the creator.  Everyone was really cool.  I didn't see any egos... well, maybe one.  The really coolest ones were Peter Gallagher (the dad), Adam Brody (the dad's son), and Rachel Bilson (the dad's son's future girl).... damn she's fiiiinnneee!  I actually liked Mischa Barton (the neighbor) before, but after seeing her yesterday, I realized she is too tall for me.  So I'm moving on. :)  She actually seemed very overwhelmed by all the people there.  She's one of the only ones I didn't get to talk to.  That's fine though, cuz I got my picture with Rachel, which I'll be putting up when I get it developed.  Hopefully I'm not drooling. ;)~  Anyway, I of course was there promoting Drowning Fish, and they all have a CD now!  I forgot the stickers though. :(  Oh well, next time I guess.

In other news, things are starting to look really good for the band, so stay tuned! -Marc

News: Sept. 1, 2003
Happy Labor Day folks!!!! I'm really not sure what labor day is even about-- whether it's meant to celebrate pregnant ladies in labor, kids that are part of sweatshop labor, minimum wage labor, or what! But whatever it means, any excuse for a day off is a good thing. We just got back from vacationing on the clear blue shores of Waikiki, Hawaii. It was our first time in Hawaii, and sooooo nice. We stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki, which is right on the beach. So in the morning, you just jump out of bed and straight into the water. Technically, you can try to do it from the balcony of your room, but I recommend taking the elevator down. 19 floors is a slightly higher jump than I recommend taking that early in the morning. Anyway, we got back late last night... the vacation is officially over. But we still have the memories... Well, I hope you're all having a nice day off from whatever it is you were supposed to do today. Heat the pool up, rip open that bag of potato chips, barbeque those hot dogs and hamburgers to perfection... and lets celebrate labor!!!! Alright! -Marc

News: August 25, 2003
Hey again! How was your weekend??? Mine was good- I went to Knott's Berry Farm on Friday, and Las Vegas on Saturday and Sunday. And now I'm back for you with some updates! Well, our video shoot has been postponed for a couple weeks. We did a practice shoot last weekend (the 16th and 17th) in Fullerton and at Newport Beach, which is where the real video will be shot. We have already gone through at least 2 girls for the part of "the girl." I'm not exactly sure why or what happened to the other two, but I'm hoping 3 times will be the charm. With Britney back in the studio and busy again, I'm not sure she'll be able to fill in incase anything does happen to... girl #3 (sorry, I'm really bad at names). Well, that's it for now I guess! -Marc
August 12, 2003
Hey there kids, how are you all doing???  I'm not sure if you heard, but we're shooting our VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO!!!  I'm really excited about it.  It's for the song "Lonely Hearts," and will be shot this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Orange County and Los Angeles.  It is being directed, created, produced, etc. by Justin and Jaspre, two really cool film students that heard and liked our music, and wanted to shoot a video for us.  We'll stream it from our site as soon as we get it, which will probably be a couple months.  In the meantime, we'll post behind-the-scenes pictures, and hopefully get some video up as well.  Anyway, that's it for now.  We'll be updating this section every few days from now on, so be sure to check back often! -Marc

June 5, 2003
Wake-up early tomorrow cuz we're going to be on the Rick Dees Morning Show on 102.7 KIIS FM!  They're doing something to promote the "Finding Nemo" movie, and since that movie is about fish, I guess it's only fitting that we play... don't ya think?  Listen in sometime between 6:30 and 10am. -Mario

Hey guys!  We rocked out at lunch with the students at Irvine High School today and it was a lot of fun.  Yesterday's show at Magnolia High School was cool too.  We played our new song, "The Breaking of My Heart" live for the first time today.  We weren't planning to play it cuz we're still working on it, but everyone wanted to hear more songs, so we thought we'd give that one a try!  We'll hopefully get some pictures up soon from some of the shows we've played.  We always forget to take pictures at our shows, but we have the video camera footage, so we'll try to pull some shots off the tape. -Mario

We're also working on a ton of new songs that I'm sure you guys are gonna really like.

The radio interview we did on Sunday was a ton of fun.  Thanks to everyone that listened and called up!  Hopefully we'll have the chance to do another one of those soon. 

We'll be at Trabuco Hills High School tomorrow playing during lunch.  We're looking to play more schools, but it's been really tough booking them.  We've spent countless hours calling every public high school in Orange County... about 10x each! We still haven't even played a fraction of the schools.  If you live in OC and we haven't played your school and it's not on our calendar, then we need your help.  Talk to your activities director or a student in ASB about having us play during lunch.  Email us if you want to know what days we are available.  Also if your schools is within 100 miles of Orange County, we'll play.  Just hook it up and let us know what day we're playing... it's up to you!

We decided that we're going to keep our $1 CD sale going forever, or till we get signed... whichever comes first.  We've had this band going for a while, and getting signed has never been our first priority.  The biggest reason why is because we have always wanted to do as much as we possibly could on our own before even thinking about a label.  But dammit, life would be a little easier with some help... don't you think???

Well this summer has gone by really fast. Did we skip over August this year or what? I know the album is way off schedule, but we're working on it. Actually all that we really have left is to make the album cover and inlay. I spent a few days figuring out how to use this art program to create the inlay but I think I have it figured out now. I'm not going to make any more promises as to when it will be out, but when it is, I'll let you know. -Mario

We finally have our album finished! We finished mixing it Monday, July 9th.  We were in the studio 9a.m. till 3:30a.m. That was one long day! We didn't finish in June as originally planned because things took a little longer then we thought, and the studio was booked up, so scheduling days wasn't easy. But we finally have it done. The album took a total of 16 days to record and mix. It will be out in August...I promise. I hope you're going to like it! Be sure to check out Marc's new diary entry. -Mario

Well November is here and our album that we hoped will be out in October is not even recorded yet. Time is moving too fast! Maybe it will be out in December but I'm not going to promise anything. Right now we're basically dissecting each song and making it as good as we can. We have 11 songs studio ready but we have 4 more to perfect...and we saved the hardest for last. Maybe I should just quit and let the fish drown. -Mario
