What a great day out there. The weather is finally getting good. And here I am in the studio.

Grabbed what had to be the last DAT headcleaner in the whole city of Chicago. Midwest Stereo on Belmont and Ashland had it (773-975-4250).

Still recording this Monoid EP. I'm two tracks in now. I just finished a track. One strong A-side and I'm done (had a couple of contenders but I decided I didn't like them). Gotta wait 'till after the festival, though. We leave early Saturday. Can't wait to let the windows down, blast some music, and do 90 MPH the whole way. I never get pulled over.

Miles is coming over to dump this electro track onto DAT. I told him that my DAT was shaky, but he kept screaming about these bad-ass stereo effects he added, and it has to be to DAT. All the guy had to do was burn me a CD. All this hype on software and making your music on a laptop, and it's actually SLOWER than outboard gear and a sequencer. That's why I only use software for post, man.

Haven't gotten around to this artwork. It'll have to wait 'till we get back.

Even though I'm playing these side parties in Detroit (see below), I'm not really sure if I'm interested in actually going to the fest. I'm more into going to see "Revenge of the Sith" while I'm in town. It's cheaper to go to the movies in Detroit than Chicago. Also, gotta do chicken wings at Union Street. That's the only thing I actually miss about Detroit. Well, that and the swimming pool and Jacuzzi we used to have in Royal Oak.

Got an e-mail about maybe playing the Dominican Republic later this summer! Now, see, that's what I'm talkin' bout!
