Yesterday Joyce brought over her doggie, Bojjak. First we locked Kodos in my room because I knew he’d freak out. But being locked in my room freaked him out way more than meeting the dog, as it turns out. Well, being sequestered made him yowl more, anyway. Kodos seemed nonplussed by the dog except when Bojjak growled at him, which turned out to be a lot. But Bojjak is a big pussy, and whenever Kodos moved he freaked out and jumped up into Joyce’s lap.
There, now wasn’t that interesting? This is what you can expect from our relationship – pet stories.
Well, despite the tremendous amount of potholes on the road to the new album, our songs continue to rock hard. We’ve all been stressing about our readiness and scheduling, but I have a pretty good feeling it’s all going to come together. The songs are pretty solid. What we lack in professionalism we make up for in channeling dark energies from beyond. If all the band members lived in the same city it would be easier. If all the band members lived in the same long distance calling zone it would be easier. If all the band members lived on the same damn continent it would be easier!
But we have a song in Middle Egyptian and I’m happy.
January is coming up and I plan on registering for the Introduction to Comic Book Production at VanArts. It’s 12 classes of three hours and apparently by the end of it I should end up with finished pages from an actual story. I haven’t decided what would be a good project for that. World Wildlife Federation of Justice is the one I’d be most excited about, but may not be the best thing to have in my portfolio. Recently someone from a Rocket Robin Hood fan group, who actually does work in comics, has begun an RRH comic book project, so I could incorporate that. Other options are Spaceship Zero, of course, but I’m not sure about the excitement level on that after chasing it for 7 years now. But, on the other hand, comic books are like pre-made storyboards for movies….
ps – look what Chris got me for Christmas!
