Ah, dammit. I wrote "you're" instead of "your." I think we all know who's retarded: this guy.
David - 10:18:00 AM

Well, Steeze is actually going to West Virginia first for Thanksgiving and then he's coming to town. Kevin, you're parents are so retarded.
David - 10:16:00 AM

Wasted! Hells yeah! K.Steeze is coming to town!

David - 9:17:00 PM

I feel it is a true honor to be nature's vehicle to distribute chaos in an effort to keep balance in the world. For my next act, I'll sabotage David's hopes and dreams. Then I'll eat a sandwich. . . without mayo!

It's good to have Zach back on the information superhighway. Random bullshit just isn't as much fun without an elemental force of chaos in the room.

Dude, I told Libby! We were out for coffee and it just slipped out. Ask her. Say, "Libby, did Zach tell you about the December 6th Cocktail Party when you were out for coffee or didn't he?" Then you'll know. I told Sarah about the party, and we discussed what we would wear if we could make it. It might be around midnightish if we do go, and we'd need a place to crash. I'm sure that can be arranged.

Mike, I received your check for the website but haven't yet had the time to get the site up and running yet. I will probably be able to do this over break or something. Thanks dude!
K.Steeze - 10:47:00 PM

Most likely I won't have any rest before recording on Friday because I'd have to bust balls to drive back in time, much like last year. What time are you planning on recording?
K.Steeze - 9:15:00 PM

Zach, I don't believe you told Libby. Not one damn bit. Anyway, I hope you and Sarah can make it. K. Steeze, I hope you can make it to Michigan to have some rest before we record on Friday. As far as that is concerned, I haven't heard back from Liz yet but the rest of the band is down.
David - 5:05:00 PM

Everyone go to and listen to a band called Don't Look Down. Liz Cherson suggested them and I likey.
K.Steeze - 3:16:00 AM

Who knows. I think at this point in my life I can come home whenever I want but I'm definitely meeting my parents in Virginia on my way home so that I can get a good night's rest and have Thanksgiving with them. All I know is that my classes end Tuesday and I'll try to get home as soon as possible.
K.Steeze - 3:12:00 AM

Friday, November 22, 2002

Oh, and I already told Libby. Sorry, guys.
Skip - 12:28:00 PM

David, Sarah will be working until 8:30 or 9:30 that night. I might be able to convince her to join me, that is if I'm able to get out of christmas time retail work. I want to come. I'll see what I can do. What day does Kevin come home?
Skip - 12:27:00 PM

December 6, The first Friday back to school after Thanksgiving, we are having a coctail party at the apartment. I want to see Zach, Sarah, Steeze, and The Last Angry Man. Semi-formal attire is strongly encouraged, but not required. Be there. Oh yeah, and don't talk about it if Ben's girlfriend Libby is around. It's a surprize for her.
David - 10:23:00 AM

hey, when do you come home, anyway?
Skip - 1:03:00 AM

So I've finished the demo for "Our Best Song Ever!" and I'd have to say that it's now the king of the best song I've ever written. I'll try to email it to you guys before I leave for home. It gets in your head
K.Steeze - 10:29:00 PM

They weren't whitey tighties. They were like really short gym shorts. And why can't that be great? Oh My God is a great band, and they are at their best live. Zach, I have been aware of their East Lansing or Lansing show for some time. I need to stay in AA this weekend. I have a lot of shit to take care of. I recommend that you see them. Also, Oh My God is playing The Flint Local 432 on Saturday, December 14 and I plan to be at that show.
When Kevin gets in town, we all need to go to Conor's for some trivia night.
David - 8:48:00 PM

hey, David, wanna see OMG?
Skip - 6:02:00 PM

OMG are a truly strange musical act whom David believe to be great. No act featuring a man in whitey tighties with flour on his face can possibly be "great."

Oh, and I know you guys do online shopping, so I'm going to ask for your help. Sarah works at a crisis center called the Listening Ear, and they're broke ass poor. They may have to close after being open every second for the past 33 years-ish. I'm not asking you to give them money, but if you download this window at it will donate a percentage of your online purchase to the Listening Ear and you don't have to pay a cent more. Just register for The Listening Ear, and many online websites are compatible with the window. I'm going to do all my Christmas shopping at barnes & noble's website to try and help. Thanks, guys.
Skip - 11:59:00 AM

Hey, just down the street from me (it's stumbling distance from my apartment), there's a bar that has Oh My God playing soon. I saw it on their sign outside. Who's Oh My God? I remember someone mentioning them.

Excellent. Now I don't have to hate B. Howard.

So upon watching the Attack of the Clones DVD last night I found the biggest continuity error ever and it ruined my night. If you watch the fireplace scene I'm sure you can find it. It's unfortunate.
K.Steeze - 7:57:00 PM

HAHA, YES! RCY gets the main opening spot. we rock.
K.Steeze - 3:18:00 PM

Skirt n Roll Pizzeria, Liquor Tastes Better When You've Got of Problem Paints, Load Hour of the Read Day of Work, Gainesville Skirt Town Center, Losers, Kings, and Things Incoming Goods Don't and Arose, Brightly Looks a Plumb Bob Like LA. I thought they were funny, and I hope you like them, too. There were some variations for most of them, so I picked the ones I liked the best. But there wasn't a single variation of Gainesville Skirt Town Center.
Skip - 9:37:00 AM

Oh, so I just got Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 for the Playstation, and now I'm trying to find out some stuff about the game. Well, I'm trying this German site and I had it translated, and since All My Best Friends are Metalheads is on the soundtrack, that was translated to Universe My Friends of Acres Metalheads. So I'm going to try finding more funny translations.
Skip - 9:12:00 AM

That sounds like a good set, though I think RCY should headline a show someday. Do you want me to bring the shirt Adam made so you can pass it to someone new? In other news, Sports Center has just become my third favorite show behind Simpson's and Sopranos. I don't have the time and energy to watch every game and press conference, so they do it for me and present it in an entertaining and often comical format. Have you guys seen this show? This also means that my current top five shows all begin with S. Numbers 3 and 5 begin with Sports.

So the Tommy's Frogs issue has been settled and now there will be one big-ass rock show featuring all GB bands. It's December 30. The schedule right now is thus:
1. The Old Hats
2. Ben Frick
3. The Hot Flashez
4. Real Can of Yams
5. Tommy's Frogs
David - 3:32:00 PM

no, but I do have your number so I can piss on your car
K.Steeze - 12:32:00 PM

Thursday, November 14, 2002

Hey, Kevin. Did you happen to get Shasta McNasty's phone number so he could be in one of your movies? That'd kick ass.

K.Steeze - 5:35:00 PM

Steeze, what's your email address?
David - 12:16:00 PM

So, I haven't been online in weeks, and I haven't read the blog in about a month. Man, sittin here before class catching up with the banter of David, Kevin, and Mike about Star Wars and Star Wars related topics brightens my morning. I'll try a real post later.
Skip - 8:09:00 AM

If Tommy's Frogs wants to do a two hour set with no opening act, that's great. And by that I mean Ben can go fuck himself and I will not be there for all the tea in China. Fuck the kids. Or at least those asshole kids.
Mike Wilson - 2:50:00 PM

Monday, November 11, 2002

So i'm in the middle of finals right now and man is it crazy. I get to do my steadicam final later this week so hopefully i won't fuck it up and I can show everyone back home. It's kind of liberating wearing a $25,000 piece of equipment, isn't it david? yeah, i have no idea what that even means. At any rate, I'll be done with my first semester of my senior year in roughly two weeks, i'll do a jig, get wasted in celebration, then drive home and start working at Toys "R" <---- (pretend it's backwards) Us. They pretty much hire people all during christmas so why the hell not. I'd like to make a short movie over break if possible... but right now i don't have any good ideas. if you have any, let me know. Oh, and by the way, my filmmaking abilities have gone good in the past couple months. So expect my senior project to be off the hizzy. Wordy word and out.. now onto band stuff.

Ahem, that is such a bad idea. Is it just me or have kids loved our band every single time we've played... and it always seems like we attract kids who haven't seen or heard of us before. Also known as "newbies." We're a perfect opening band for Tommy's Frogs. We rock. We're fun. The Crowd digs us. And we're a GB band. I know that if I went to go see The Frogs play that I wouldn't give a shit about some band from out of town... unless they're like Less Than Jake or something. that's what we need! We need to open for Less Than Jake who's opening for Tommy's Frogs. and just give LTJ a nice 2 hour opening set. and then take the sandwich to the koala and ram it on home. hot damn!
K.Steeze - 4:15:00 PM

So nothing's final yet, but Ben Frick's plan now is that Tommy's Frogs likely will have no opening act or a non-Grand Blanc opening act. His plan is for the Frogs to play a two-hour set. I can't tell you what a bad idea that is. I'll work on him trying to get us the opening gig. An idea Paul Doerr threw out is that there might be another night seperate from Tommy's Frogs, a night of all GB bands. This sounds like a fun night, but I don't know if we can draw good crowds for two different nights.
David - 11:33:00 AM

Don't be a fool, the bitch wouldn't eat it!
Mike Wilson - 10:48:00 AM

Sunday, November 10, 2002

Dude, that'd honestly be about the best present anyone could give me. it'd be awesome. then i'd force feed him a sandwich.
K.Steeze - 12:33:00 AM

I'm sending a doped up koala to your house so he can stagger around for your amusement. What the hell else would it mean?
Mike Wilson - 1:46:00 PM

Friday, November 08, 2002

What does that mean exactly?
K.Steeze - 11:09:00 PM

Help is on the way.

Wednesday, November 06, 2002

Well, honestly... there's not much to the man. I mean come on. His wife divorced him for being too dull. So I have some bad news. My internet finally shut off after my month of free service. This means that I won't be online to talk as much and that I won't be able to update the website hardly at all. Also, I still need to pay a company $35 to renew the domain, and I just don't have the money right now. So it's up to you guys, but there may not be much point in having as of right now. Hopefully, I can get some money under me, pay David back, and can get the sight going within the next couple months. Let me know your feelings.
K.Steeze - 2:18:00 PM

Yeah, because we all know George so well.
David - 8:35:00 PM

Too true. Too true.
Mike Wilson - 2:26:00 PM

Monday, November 04, 2002

That's too bad, Mike. I read on that the movie would be cut short so I didn't make plans to go see it. It seemed kinda ridiculous to me. Just be happy that the DVD comes out in two weeks, and knowing George, it'll probably have more footage than the actual theatrical release had.
K.Steeze - 1:35:00 PM

DO NOT see the IMAX version of Attack of the Clones! Whatever you do, don't see it. I think it was the single most disappointing event of 2002. Sure, it was great seeing the movie on that enormous screen, but at what cost? The beautiful two and a half hour opus was slashed to almost precisely two hours; entire scenes were deleted, other scenes were cut short, and the pacing of the movie was thrown completely off. I cannot believe George Lucas allowed this to happen. I'm angry and disappointed when I should be joyous.
Mike Wilson - 11:38:00 AM

Oh yeah. and I shook Jake Busey's hand (yes, that Jake Busey. the Jake Busey who's the son of Gary Busey who was in the epic film, Point Break) after the screening of Real Women Have Curves at tonight's film festival. I said, "What's up, Jake?" and then he said something like, "Hey man! Great to see ya!" and then he shook my hand. haha, man. he was in Starship Troopers and Home Fries! He was also in my teacher, Annette Haywood-Carter's directorial debut titled, The Foot Shooting Party back in 1994. go check out his picture at it's ridiculous.
K.Steeze - 2:45:00 AM

so i saw Punch-Drunk Love tonight and Real Women Have Curves.. both were good but Punch-Drunk Love was amazing, as David foretold. I absolutely love the opening scene in the movie and the randomness of it. incredible. i think i'll try and write a screenplay with random humor in it. god knows it won't have as good of a message as PDL had.
