album stuff

Spattergroit was supposed to be done Friday so I could order the CDs and they could be on their merry little way through the postal service to get to me on time for Leaky.
As life usually goes, that didn't happen, and some time yesterday afternoon I started seriously panicking as I had neither all the completed tracks or album art.

Luke and Jason spent all weekend mixing and finishing the tracks and I have finally received all 10 tracks at 8:15 AM this morning, and I am putting the finishing touches on the art that Liz and I spent literally all of last night doing. We got home from seeing the new show at the theatre I work at around 11 PM, and from there worked straight from then to 3 AM when I finally fell asleep. Liz, on the other hand, worked straight through the night and was still drawing things when I woke up at 8 AM this morning. Granted she had a huge art assignment she needed to do as well, but still. I am now going to have to write a theory paper at gross-early o'clock on a Monday morning because of how much time this stupid album art took.

And it's not even done! I still have one empty space and nothing to fill it with yet. Ahhh.

I hope you guys like this album. It's been a pain in the ass these last few days.

In other, better news, I got a new phone finally. It's the Samsung Rant and it's purple. Sprint didn't really have any phones I was crazy about, but the Instinct was terrible and this phone is a reeeally fun shade of purple (my last phone was pink ^^) so I think I can live with it. It has Sprint TV on it and stuff, so that's a step up from my Katana that litterly only made phone calls. And probably would still make a nice door stop.

I am so jealous of Alex; he fell asleep around 1 and is still sleeping now. I don't even think it affected him that the light has been on this entire time.

Okay Adorno, let's talk about negative dialectics. SIGH.

good luck writing your paper, yo.
I have faith in you, having observed your writing style and ability to write about interesting things even when you claimed there was nothing to say.
also, your purple phone sounds lovely : )

i saw the album art on alex's diary
it look amazing!
i probably won't buy it physically, but i will totally get it off iTunes.
actually, maybe i will buy the physical copy..i'm still unsure.

omg, the other day, i heard this weird song from outside and was like "what neighbor in my neighborhood listens to music this loudly?" (i live in an oldish person block. and i looked out side and it was THE ICE CREAM TRUCK!
i've never had the ice cream truck go down my road in my life and it struck me with such surprise that i just stood there at my window watching it. if it comes by ever again i am bolting out the window.

I've got the same exact phone. It's pretty cool, huh? I LOVE the purple. It makes me a little happy every time I see it.
Now I can text people as easy as on a computer with the keyboard . . . and I can give in to the stereotype that teenagers are obsessed with texting. ;-)

word verification...brebum?
