current song: Endpoint - Aftertaste

my birthday was all kinds of spectacular. lots of time spent with fun people, especially jenn. one of the gifts from her was a paid trip to St. Louis.. we had a great time. My personal highlight was visiting the Schlafly Taphouse. They brew some delicious beer, definately one of my favorites.

at long last, i am finally able to play basketball/run again. my ankle has come a long way, although i still am not 100%.. probably more like 60%. i can go left (injured foot), but have a hard time jumping left. but i can still cross in that direction, so thats a relief.

the band with jake and jacob has recorded two songs (with me playing drums).. they are fun poppy funky punky songs; we are writing more stuff currently. we're talking with Doug Walker about playing drums.. he likes the songs, so hopefully we get this shit going as a full band soon. we are looking for a practice space.. any ideas there? we are looking into the place on Oak St. we also need a band name. ugh.

The Olympia Three has kinda slowed down, probably gonna die a slow death. we are, however recording a 4-song free CD to be handed out at a show September 25th with Cabin.. it's supposed to be part of Trolley Hop. not sure of the venue. thats exciting. might be our last effort.

albums i've been into lately include

- One Day As A Lion - s/t
- David Byrne - Feelings
- Michael Jackson - Thriller (man, i've never grown tired of this record)
- Birdman & Lil' Wayne - Like Father Like Son
- City Of Ghosts - all their stuff
- Merle Haggard - Hurtin'
- Al Green - Let's Stay Together
- Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
- Endpoint - Aftertaste

P.S. - I miss Michael Jackson.
