Day 666

Did anybody see White Rabbits last night on Letterman? AWESOME! It was so surreal seeing those dudes in that setting. If you missed it, it's already on the youtube because the internet is insane.

Last night we recorded our 5th song with vocals (working title "Out of this Party"). We have today and tomorrow to finish vocals, and I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel now that 60% of our songs have lyrics finished. Hope to hit at least 80% by the end of the night. This probably seems completely irresponsible, but it's just how we roll. When we were recording "Flashlights" we spent about a month and a half on vocals, just because most of it wasn't written. During the last few hours of the "When I Explode" sessions, i was running sheets of lyrics over to Aaron and he was recording them pretty much as he was reading them for the first time. We wouldn't have it any other way.

5 songs, 2 days. It can happen.

We have been staying in the bachelor-pad-esque basement of Norm's Uncle Don. It's been fun, and the whole family was great to us. Somehow there would be 2 budweisers in the mini-fridge every night, and if they both got drank there would be 2 more the next night. I blame the beer fairy.

I started liking a chihuahua, which i didn't think would ever happen. His name is Cooper and I took this excellent picture of him yawning.
