I think if someone made skirts for Lori and Dawn and shorts for Jim and I based on this, they'd get free Missile Command schwag for life. Maybe a concert in their living room, too.

 We had a wonderful time last night on the air. Thanks to everyone who listened! We received a CD of the show, and will be going through and editing it and posting it on www.missile-command.net in the coming weeks.

Thanks again!

Tonight!

I'd just like to wish an advance happy first day of Me.

Give it up!

What would your own album look like if you were in a band? Follow the directions below and find out...

Here are the rules:

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random... Read More”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 - Post it and TAG the friends you want to join in.

Yes, more music-related post. Want something juicier? Maybe later.

So, we've written about half of the songs for our next CD already. It helps to have everything at hand to write whenever the mood strikes. We're taking a bit of a different route this time, in that we actually kinda know what we're doing. A lot of the stuff on the first CD was written haphazardly. No, seriously, about half of the CD was noodling before we booked our first show. Then it was "oh shit, we have to finish these songs", and Matt, Jim and I would stay up late finishing them up.

Now, five years later, we're writing again. It's a lot of fun. These first five songs are a mixture of things that Jim and I tossed into a folder called "idea box". That's the music that we have no idea what to do with...30 second snips of loose ideas that sounded cool at the time. We hit that first when we're writing new songs. If it doesn't sound good, we put it back. Otherwise, we have a winner and we work on it some more.

The biggest difference between now and then is that we've brought on Dawn and Lori as full-timers. They're both writing the music along with us. It really brings a different tone and feeling to the new material. There's a song that all four of us are throwing ideas at at the same time, as well as tunes that we're taking aside for ourselves. The new album will be different from the current album, and every song will still be very different from one another.

We'll also have another guest performer on this album.

The new album is called "The Future". It's kind of a concept album, with different takes on the future that never was. We'll be doing one of the new songs at our next show, a song Lori is performing called "Involuntary Dilation". Hope you like it.

Speaking of...flyer time:



In closing, if you haven't picked up our CD, "Machines Should Think People Should Work", do so. You can get it from us, or most digital music stores. If you own a copy, write up a quick review! Jim will give you a hug.

One of my clients just gave me a large box of various fabrics and crap. I have no idea what's in it, but I told them I'd try to get it into someone's hands that might have an idea what to do with it.

Some of it may be useful, some of it may not. If you want it, it's yours. The whole damn box, though. Locals only. Shoot me a message. 

YAY!

Yes. I'm an Apple geek.
So it should come to no surprise that when I saw Missile Command available on iTunes one day after they announced that all songs will be sold DRM free at higher bit resolution, it made me weepy with happiness.

So now the only excuse to not buy one is that you don't live in the United States. That will be fixed in a few weeks. Go buy it at this link:

Machines Should Think People Should Work 

Or, you can also get it at Amazon MP3 as well, here (for a buck less, at that!):

Machines Should Think People Should Work


Or, you can always just go to our website and buy a CD!

Missile Command's website

Then, you can go sign up for our remix contest!

Oooo
