What just happened

So, it’s been a while since i’ve written a full out text blog. That is because I have been busy. With what you ask?

I have been interviewing people for a special project in Germany, which I am going to put a lot of time in, seeing as it is an important aspect of my school.

I have recorded a demo / EP with The Shortest Straw in the studio, I have been selling ( insane) amounts of tickets for our show this saturday. Designing flyers, posters, making plans for a videoclip.

Homework. Fucking homework man. It’s like the teachers don’t even consider us having things to do outside of school. Anyway, next week a lot, then exam week, and then finally ( some ) peace and quiet.

So anyway, playing a show this saturday, 19th of april, 19th of may, and many more to come. Come party / rage with me :)

Bookings

So I’m in this band, The Shortest Straw, and I am pretty much the manager. It just happened, and things go well. Except communications.

If I want to play a show somewhere, and I do not get an answer within 10(!) days, then wtf is going on. If you don’t want us, just tell us. If there is a different problem, tell us. But don’t send anything back at all, because it will just piss me off. How can I plan ahead if you won’t reply?

As you may have noticed, I am trying to set up a show. But not a normal show, but a Birthday Bash for me and my homie http://thenumber44.tumblr.com/, also known as The Peter. It’s gonna be awesome, IF everyone cooperates. 

Damn you world, DAMN YOU!

Frolicking around with photoshop a few days now, result of today&#8217;s work. Does anyone have a suggestion what to do next? Feeling really inspired

Studio

So we finally set a date with my band to record in a studio. So this can either mean our first EP will be released, or our first demo. Either way, I love the studio, only I always get scared whenever we go to one. That’s because I have to play with click track.

Now if I did what my drumteacher told me, I would have a built in click track in my head by now, but unfortunatley, I have school, a girlfriend, a social life, work, and a band I play in. So I didn’t practice as much as I should have. So now, I have to start hardcore practicing click track. Luckily I can already play two of the 5 songs, so just 3 three to go! 

I have about a month. Wish me luck!

A formal welcome everyone

Hello everyone who is reading this,

I am new to tumblr, and I don’t really know if it is a blog, or a kind of twitter with more pictures, but fuck conformity, for me it is a blog. So this is my official introduction. ( For all the 3 people reading this) I will still reblog funny shit though, but I will try to deliver my part of interesting things to read ( which I already failed probably)

I play drums in this wickedly cool punk band called The Shortest Straw, ( http://www.facebook.com/ShortestStrawBand ) in which I play drums, and you can hear the occasional scream coming from me on stage. So far this is still a cliché intro I guess. I love old rock ‘n roll, old metal, new rock ‘n roll, new metal, a lot of punk. Hell, I love most music actually, as long as it does not try to murder me in my sleep. 

I don’t know what to do with my life yet, and am still looking for something. I like music though.  Currentley I am bored, which is part of the reason I am writing this, also, I like writing things.

Thank you for your attention.

A funny story

So, I am in this band called The Shortest Straw, we play pop-punk with a sharp punk edge. We have some fans, not many, but playing is a lot of fun, and we put a lot of energy into it.

So anyways, we decided to do what all the other bands did. Merch. We ordered 50 shirts, in varying sizes so everyone could wear them. Unfortunatley, I am a complete utter retard, and forgot to order ANY male Large shirts. 

So now everyone wants a large, and we don’t fucking have any.

So moral of the story;

Either start getting XXL fat, or start getting M skinny.

ps: we still have shirts if anyone wants any! Just a lot of medium, and like 2 XXL, so hit me up!
