It is always nice to see something you have been planning for a really long time come together (relatively) smoothly. Thursday night is the first show we are playing for this little tour thing, and it looks like Wednesday we will be picking up our freshly printed CDs. So we somehow managed to have stickers, buttons, shirts, and CD's all at one time. Being in a band is a money pit.

I think Victor is the only person who reads this blog, but, here are the dates (as if I haven't already sent all of you a myspace event invite, facebook event invite, and several twitter reminders- geez):
Mar 12: Gville
Mar 13: Downtime
Mar 14: Cocoa Beach
Mar 15: Sarasota
Mar 16: Tampa
Mar 17: Orlando at Backbooth
Mar 18: New Orleans?
Mar 19: Austin TX
Mar 20: Pensacola
Mar 21: Tallanasty!
Mar 22: Atlanta

Having that Orlando show on Mar 17 really makes everything else kind of a pain. . .but it is with Inkwell, One Small Step For Landmines, and Slow Claw. . . so it should be REALLY f'ng fun (for me at least. Not to mention it will be nice to play a show when I DON'T have to get up at 8am the next day.)

Anyways, I didn't just post this because a blog offers me yet another place to inundate you with promotional information: I also posted to discuss, "Lose" and "Loose."

How any person could mix the two of these up, is beyond me. "Lose" is a VERB. "Loose" is an adjective."

"He somehow managed to lose all his money by spending it on fast cars, booze and loose women."

Simple, right?

Here is some more help:

"Lose" is pronounced, "looz," whereas "loose" rhymes with noose, moose, and caboose.

If you are an adult, and you cannot keep these words straight, you should have to go back to elementary school (Billy Madison style.) I think I kind of equate poor spelling and grammar habits to having low self-confidence in much the same way I would equate a woman dressing dumpy to meaning she has low self-confidence, or a man being afraid to speak to women as meaning he has low self-confidence. It's ok: You deserve to spell right. I know you can do it.
