whatís up! Itís
Friday the 13th today!
Scary stuff huh.
Anyway, I havenít written in a whileÖ. as
usual, but Iím sure youíre over all my apologies. So Iíll just act like nothing is wrong and get going with
we finally finished our album!
I canít believe itís all done and in our
took way way longer than we thought it would take, but I
guess thatís the way it goes.
We kept coming up with new ideas in the studio,
so that alone took a lot of time.
But also, we lost a few weeks cuz we had
scheduling problems since the studio was so booked. Theyíre super busy cuz everyone is recording during summer,
so it sucked for us cuz we were only a couple days from
finishing, and we had to wait three weeks to come in
again for one day.
And if we didnít finish, weíd have to wait
another 3 or 4 weeks cuz weíre leaving for a month
long vacation on Monday! So we got really lucky that we finished before we left.
And we started this in May!
But weíre done, so everything is cool.
Anyway, we went in on Monday, July 9, 2001 from
9am to 3:30 in the morning and finished.
We listened to the whole album on the way home,
and itís a long drive, but I guess itís an even
longer album, so we drove around the block about 20
times so we could finish listening to the entire thing.
It turned out really good, but there was a couple
ideas I thought of later that I wish were in there.
And also, some of the levels werenít as high as
I wanted them. Nothing
major, just some of the backgrounds and the phone call
canít remember if I told you about Jami or not, but
sheís the girl on our cover.
Jami is one of the only people I would have wanted on the
donít know why, but she represents a huge part of my
past. I knew her in high school cuz we had a keyboarding class
together, and we got to be friends and all that. That was my last semester in high school, so I really held on
to that classÖ. especially since it was one of my
funnest classes. The
only thing is when I think about it, that class only
lasted about 4 months.
But it somehow made its mark.
I got in touch with Jami a couple months ago and asked
her if sheíd want to be on the cover, and she was
really excited to.
I was so happy cuz I was scared she wouldnít
care to be on it and would say no.
Over the past month or so, weíve been talking
about planning a shoot, and yesterday it finally finally
was actually my first time seeing her in 6 years, so it
was kind of crazy. I was pretty nervous. It
was a really cool shoot though.
We took it in Corona Del Mar, at the state beach.
We were there for about an hour or so.
Iím going to get the pictures developed
hopefully today, so I canít wait to see how they
turned out. My

Hey, Iím back.
I forgot what happened, but I probably had to go
eat or something and got sidetracked.
Anyway, I got the pictures developed today.
I was really bummed because they turned out
really darkÖ. most of them anyway.
But all of them turned out grainy at least. The best one that came out was the very last one. That one
was where me, Jami, and Mario took our group shot.
I guess we have to set up another shoot. Hopefully she wonít mind.
Poor thing, she was freezing her butt off for us
because there was a really strong cool breeze.
And whenever she thought she had a break, sheíd
throw her jacket on for two seconds, and then have to
take it off for another picture.
Anyway, itís fun thinking back on it all.
Iím super stressed because weíre leaving on our
three week vacation tomorrow, and I havenít even
started packing yetÖ. let alone finished shopping for
things I need. I
still need to get glasses made, and Lens Crafters closes
at 6! Itís
3:37pm now, but I have to still choose the frames and
the lens type, and give them an hour to make it.
And we might be going to Riverside to pick up 25
CDís and our two masters.
And then we have to stop by Farmer Boy Burgers
because we promised Mona weíd give her a copy when we
is a really cool worker that took our order most of the
timeÖ. cuz weíd always go there for lunch when we
she gave me her number without me even having to ask for
it! I think
I could really get used to this rock star thing.
But then again, Iím sure she just thought I was
super sexy, attractive, charming, amazing, wonderful,
good looking, all of the above, and etc. etc. etc, so
she would have given me her number anyway.
And then weíre supposed to go to someoneís
house tonight, but Iím not sure if we can.
It just depends how much we can get done.
stress of living my life!
I wouldnít wish this horror on my worst
alright, itís not that bad.
Itís just a little frustrating.
Iíve been going on, and I really have to go.
We donít have enough time to upload our music
to MP3.com (where it will be selling, and you would be
able to download 10 of the 15 songs) before we leave, so
the album wonít be released until AugustÖ. and
thatís a promise this time!
Thereís no way itís going to get pushed any
further than that.
Well, try not to miss me too much.
Iíll be thinking of you while Iím goneÖ. if
youíre single, cute, have long brown hair, deep brown
eyes, natural tan skin, a pretty smile, and an 8X10
glossy photo of yourselfÖ color preferred, but not
required, S.A.S.E for sticker, sorry no C.O.Dís. But
Iím not picky, so if youíre a cute girl that wants
to fall in love with me, please help yourself.
And on that note, Iíll leave you now.
So goodbye, so long, and Iíll see you in three
