  Week in review-

Well, there have been sinister wheelings and dealings this week. We are literally a hop, skip and a jump away from getting our band 100% ready to rock it. We have been practicing for the past 3 months once or twice a week at this music shop that lets us use their back room which has a wonky Maxtone drumkit in it. But finally I have saved up enough dosh to buy a Yamaha stage custom 5 piece, ye! I am so excited.
This is my first proper proper drumkit, the last one I had was not worth pissing on, but this one is a stallion. It is a regular five piece, snare, 2 mounted toms, floor tom and bass drum but I am also forking out some extra dough to score a 16 inch zildjin crash, a 21 inch zildjin ride, 14 inch hi-hats and a double kick pedal. SIC! I am going to be next Danny Carey. Have a gander below:

Anyway, I am all set, I am going down to the shop tommorow, will pay the dude and walk out a happy man. My lead guitarist is almost done building a jam room in his back yard so we are going to be all over this shit like an allergic rash. We have yet to find a bassist but I just met this guy last nite that my rythm guitarist said was a good singer. He was a a large guy, had these wierd contacts on and bleached hair but seemed pretty chill. Anyhoot we will be jamming on Tuesday so let's see how it works out.
I watched Shaun of the Dead. Amazing flick, British humour is evil. Saw Envy also, was horrible, Ben Stiller is such a tool. Anyway I'm not much for this open diary shit but I'm buying a drumkit so everyone should know. Also we haven't finalized on a band name. Here are some of the options-

Baddu Kombat (Baddu, by the by, is short for bedouine)
Baddu in Chains
Primal Baddu
Inefficient Labourer (can also substitute labourer for baddu here)
Suhagraat (Indian word for wedding nite, UNTZ!)
Pranaam (Indian synonym for basically, less get it on)
Lowkey (also a double meaning for the God of mischief, Loki)
Neccessary Evil
Pearl Diver
Smut Peddlar
The Staplers
Celladoor (my guitarists idea = gay)
Kabooke Quantum Fighter

So I need some help. Let me know which one of these names strikes a chord. Or if there are any other suggestion I am happy to hear em.
I like Inefficient Labourer. Maybe because it reminds me of me! ;-)
Thanks for the comment on Barefoot. That new kit is awesome - you're gonna' love it. As for band names I'm lovin' Lowkey (Loki). I think every band needs a little bit of mischief in it. Also if you need any help with cover art or flyers and posters I'd be glad to help. I run my own graphic design business and I love to do work like that for free on the side - sort of breaks the same old routine of computer company, straight laced business, blah blah blah....

thats a nice drum kit!
i want either a stage custom kit or a set of v-drums but havent decided which is best yet
Loki - spelled like that. I like the double meaning and it gives people something to talk about. Mystique.

Im in Glasgow Montana tonight on my tour. Brrrr.
Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I have a sample posted at Barefoot. Let me know what you think.
What about Kabooke and the Fat-Kidneyed Lewdsters?

Or Papp Smirnoff?

If not, I like Necessary Evil, myself.

I rule all day everyday. I rule 100% 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. However, every four years, during a leap year I take one day off to rule 99%. If you want to challenge my ruling capacities, that is the only day to duel me to rule. Otherwise, I go back to regular ruling. Even if I wanted to, I couldn't stop ruling. I could rule everything in two words or less. If you'd like to see me in action, I will rule... all over your face.

This how I do
