Ugh

Anybody have to deal with Myspace's pathetic bullshit today? Those bastards just outbid the EPA for "Worst Organization In The History Of Life God Damnit".

Upon having the SD account "phished" for the second time this weeek, I was prompted to yet again renew our password... Only I couldnt renew the password because one of the fields wouldnt transfer information (you know, the one where you have to retype the warped letters in the box? thanks you acid-burnout-google-tech-weenies. you can sleep easy, I'm a real human).

Myspace should hear about this dillema. I'll "Contact Customer Service"! Only the same moron who fucked up the Password Page must have doomed this one, because i couldnt edit a "sub-catagory" information field, and in turn, had no (obvious) way of reporting my problem.

In the meantime, I'd tried to post a new blog, and Safari froze my iChat. "WTF". Added bonus: It was right in the middle of a file transfer. Otis Rush's sideproject "Snatch and the Poontangs" is looking a bit more like "Snatch Poo" on my desktop.
Our Monday nights at the Echo are over. The final show was total glory. Spaceland Recordings taped the whole thing. Should be available soon on their site. I'll keep on it. In the meantime, here's a quick demo of a new one called Hiroshima Song.

Woo Hoo, Hoo Hoo, Hoo Hoo

Looking forward to a couple days in San Francisco this weekend. NoisePop Festival. Then a couple more dates in LA, then a big ass SXSW trip.

Also a tour in the works for April...

ta ta,

don't even bother with the customer relations contact thing...its a waste of time...i sent them the same question phrased 5 diffrent ways and i got the same generic response about how to set my profile to private...even though that had NOTHING to do with what i was complaining about.

boooo myspace.

BOOOOOOOOO!

i'll see y'all at safari sams or hotel cafe...or maybe even both! =)

"you know, the one where you have to retype the warped letters in the box?"

Ah, been there. So I emailed for help and they replied with something about alternative methods of uploading pictures.

Informative, certainly. Helpful, not so much.

I can't comment on any kind of performances, as I am more miles away than I count.

*sulks*

MySpace is ridiculous, but having an account is a necessary band-thing I'm afraid.

I'm liking the demo....hopefully that possible April tour swings by Seattle or Portland. I'll be able to transport other unrelated beings in my car by then so we'll be representin'... Representing what, I don't know. I don't fully believe that I have a right to use that term.

This dumb thing better "publish" my comment.

Blake rants are intersting to read. Do you wave your hands about when you rant to people?

Those Myspace code things... I can't work them up anyway its like you have to have your head at a certain crooked angle to read them and even then its like ok what the faloop is that.

SXSW sounds like its going to be a blast again this year. Loads more venues and bands.

Beirut is playing 14th March at Emo's @ the 4AD showcase at SXSW

s'all good.
