that head spinning dizzyness..?
the slurringg ob spleech?
blurring of vision..?
those spots flittering around like butterflies in front of me eyes?
that's me trying to catchup to meself..
I may seem like a mild-mannered lazy-arse mouse-potato slob on the dole.. drinkin' waaaay too much beer and running amok on the weekends, living the life of stress free leisure..
and.. perhaps, you may think you're right..
but.. OOOH NOOOO.. you're dead wrong kiddo..
I'm a creative / multitasking fiiiieeeeeeend..
I can hardly keep up with meself..
I'm driving myself barking insane up me own tree
on a caffeinated overdosing bender of exploding monkey adrenaline..
yup.. there's no stopping me..
here's some of the idiotic creative projects I'm currently involved with..
(I may be gettin' over me head here..)
( 1 ) - "ALWAYS DELAYED / NEVER RELEASED".. the PRODIGY comic strip - that I run with this dude in ALASKA.. he's the artist / producer.. I'm the script writer / director..
currently in the process of scripting the 2nd main installment.. coming up with wacky promo (check out the teaser poster on the site).. yup, this is a-grade stupidity at it's comical finest.. plus.. the first time I've been stupid enough to attempt something like this.. and I haven't fallen flat on me arse YET.. HA!
( 2 ) SUBWOOFER playing LIVE this SATURDAY @ THE CROWN N ANCHOR with DR GOODHED.. come check it out, see us destroy shit.. 11PM - 12AM..
( 3 ) as a new gimmick for our live SUBWOOFER gigs.. we've been working on this idea, of using 2 laptop PCs instead of just the one.. mixing it all live.. but also like a wacky 2 turntable DJ set type thing.. so, much tweaking of the tracks to adapt to the new live format.. much rehearsing.. tweaking.. this gig we're playing on Saturday.. is the first time we try it out live..
( 4 ) we've also just been offered a gig for the ADELAIDE FRINGE FESTIVAL... providing a lo-fidelity illbient crunch DJ set (recorded) as soundtrack for the PROJECTER exhibit.. soon to be showing at the South Australian Museum for the duration of the FRINGE (check ya FRINGE guides if ya got 'em for more details). So, I'm currently in the process of adapting current material.. and likely coming up with some new material.. to mix live.. for a 1 hour DJ set.. recording it all to CD.. mastering it.. to use..
( 5 ) at some stage.. I really should finish this song we've been working on.. um.. shit, I dunno.. I've lost track.. we started it sometime back in 2002? maybe last millennium? song's called "LOCUSTS".. you might've heard me ramble on about it at some stage.. I really should finish it sometime soon.. at least before COPY ONE (Stuckey) gets commited to a loony bin as a gibbering incoherant loon.. wot with all the waiting..
( 6 ) I'm dimly aware that I'm gonna be doing 2 band photoshoots.. in the next week or 2.. one for the band "BOOSTER" (shhhh. top secret!) and another for the band, "THE CASTONETS".. perhaps some crazed tweakage with poster designs, CD-art.. and other wacky publicity.. depends wot they want really.. I think AUGUST FALLS are also looking for some new stuff.. mmmm?
I just wish this paid ACTUAL money.. coz it'd make a damn nice career..
but, since it isn't.. I'm also scrambling around busily looking for a REAL job..
and dodging bullets from both CENTRELINK and the JOB NETWORKS.. in my attempts to find it..
(they love the endless nuisance interviews / meetings / letters thru the post.. aaaaaah)
drives me crazy it does..
but in some weird way..
iiiiiiiiii LIKE IT!
