Work has kept me slammed…

03/01/2003 – Work has kept me slammed all week so there hasn’t been too much going on. I’m looking forward to the Sparky’s Nightmare show at Dave’s this evening and I’m hoping to get a little recording done on my record as well the some mixing on the Sparky’s Nightmare and some recording on the Honeyrider record done too. Whew!

It’s 2am and I’m still at work

02/25/2003 – OK, it’s 2am and I’m still at work as we wait for the phone to ring. So, I thought I’d fire of a quick entry. Honeyrider practice on Sunday went really well. We started to work on some new recordings and began learning two more of the old songs. Things are sounding really good and we hope to play a show in the not-to-distant future.

We got the call, and like Doug, “I’m outtttttttttttttta heeeeeeeeeeere!”
