[music |One night in Bangkok - Murray Head]

I'm exhausted right now, but I wanted to say 'hallo' and give a quick update. There are a ton of things coming up...and I'm pretty darned excited 'bout all of it. TBM is filming a video for Blue, preparing for our jaunt to Europe in the summer, practicing all the time and working on new material!!!    Gratuitous, yet vague, info is ....here <---- Yes, it's a few weeks old... but I'm putting it here just to keep track of everything.

Whilst Trolling around this here internet thingy... I found a slew of TBM related sites. (some older, some new!) ...If you have nothing to do...check out the Kisou avatars.

Holy. It's been over 6 months since I made an entry. Shame on me. ...I've been up all night roaming around, finding +uploading old files and photos to fix all the holes in my entries. Wasn't easy (thanks Lian!). They were being stored on Aphasia's now defunct ftp. Speaking of which: time to answer a couple of questions. In November, Aphasia decided to make alot of changes...and move in a bit of a different direction goal-wise. I simply wasn't into it and I wasn't interested in giving up the things I would've had to for these changes.

So, unfortunately for The Birthday Massacre...they are stuck with my 110%unwavering, full-throttle, metronomic fabulousness...now 24-7.

now that the shock has worn off.... man, what the heck happened? like last week i was thinking "man, i really want to see aphasia again soon, i hope they've got some shows coming up" and... now this! *cries*

i have to say i'm disapointed at the fact that aphasia will be no more... obviously it's not your fault.. it's just... sad.

you have a world view? ..you must be way taller than I am :)

Those shows were great, I had a blast playing. I'm just not involved with the new project. Life is good, but I need to eat and sleep way more. I will post more..hah..somehow.

Don't worry. You can still watch the gelatinous mass that is me play drums :D

.....a Clarification

(Link)

Hi all. thanks for the well wishes.

Seems like I have to make some things a bit clearer. I guess some people have the wrong impression... I did not just make the decision to leave aphasia for another band....I wanted to find a way to make it all work. I certainly would not ditch a project I worked so hard on after 4 years that was such a huge part of my life. I was proud of the work we did and had a lot of fun. So let's put the implication that I happily walked away to rest. It's not that simple. There's things to look forward to that I'd rather talk about!

I've always liked TBM 10fold over aphasia. Good move, if you ask me. Always excited to hear new news, by the way. We've been wondering where you guys are all at.

Eeek!There's a survivor!!!-pokes with stick-

Eh,I've never actually been a fan of Aphasia at all so I personally have no problem with you leaving them or whatever's going on.

(I'm so essited about the video!!!!Tell the rest of the band 'Post Haste!' for me will you?Lol)

!!! I'm totally glad you said that....cause too often people tell us they hope we play at Location/country X, ...when we can't...So it's so nice for me to be able to say to you : "Cool, We are playing Germany! :D Hope to see you there!!!" That makes my day!

answer ;)

Sounds like your stuff will be an album (or LP) for sure. At 80 minutes...nearly a double album?

An EP (for extended play), is the name given to vinyl records (or CDs) which are too long to qualify as singles but too short to qualify as albums. Typically an album (or LP for Long Play) has eight or more tracks (or around one hour), a single only one or two, and an EP five to eight.

Well, we all are gonna miss you with Aphasia, but hey, you had to make the decision.
We all still love you
Good luck with everything, hope all of you have a kick-ass jaunt in Europe. Get your asses down here in the US so I can see you! *shakes fist* We`ll all be heartbroken if you don`t ;)
Can`t wait for the video, it`ll give me something more to drool over all your guys`s sexiness
Keep up the good work, good luck to you and the rest of the band ;)

I'm glad to see you're still alive! I'm so excited about the "Blue" video. You don't even know. "Blue" is, like, the best song on Violet. Once that comes out, that'll be all over Chicago. Hell. Yeah.

I'm so confused with the Aphasia deal, so I'll say good move. Just because I like TBM better...no offense to anyone. That's just me. ^_^

Oh, and don't forget tbmchicago.com. :>

Hey Jim - don't be a stranger - we miss you guys! Good luck in Europe and with the video - you guys deserve a ton of success. Definitely you're some of the nicest, most genuine people we've ever come across.

Awww.... what can I say...but: You guys, too! we had a great time on our wee trip though the states with you guys. Good band, good friends, good tour guides!!!

I have a cool pic of all of us... think I'll post it here next entry (cause I was going to anyway) .... miss you too! we were just talking about getting you guys here...to return the favour... if we can work something out sometime... !!!

What can I say?... It was awesome to work with a professional group of people...who had no egos, were totally nice and fun and treated us so well.... *sniffle* that can be rare..some bands are...well...they think ...ah nevermind. Some poeple are just too competitive for no reason and think alot of themselves. it was nice to just have a good time.

I feel your pain about Rogers. Always seems to act really slow or never connect RIGHT when I need it the most. *shakes fist*
Anyways nice to know your alive and well. Snazzy website you found there too.
