I'M OFFICIALLY IN A BAND!!! WOOO!!!


yes, yes, my dried up rock star days are officially over, i am officially off of haitus and on my way to singing and playing again, woo! as you all may or may not know, I have been working with scrumbles to lay down some background vocals for his upcoming album, Evil Genius. He hath 'splained to me that he would absolutely adore having me around full time musically, to be part of his beloved Electric Doormat. This, you see, is a GIANT honor to me, as it's been his solo effort for forever and ever, and to be thought worthy enough to be brought in permanently to a solo effort? i'm still blushing.

what will i be doing in the band, you ask? well, i have a rudimentary knowledge of guitar, bass, and piano, (and singing, of course) and will be doing a bit of each in order to fill out where i'm needed for whichever song we're playing. official title? Helpatarian and Finder of Things. Says me.

so, um yeah. this is my official pimpage for all that is Doormat. you can check out the official website and join the forums there (and hear some music!), and definitely definitely add the myspace to your friends list. on myspace, you can hear some other tracks, as well as two that feature my background vocals ("Millions Die" and "Loss of Life").

I will, of course, update you all on our happenings as they occur! Certainly some open mics in our future...

p.s. - if you like what you hear, feel free to pimp out to anyone! tee hee hee.

Oooh congratulations sweetie! *massive hugs*

If I ever head anywhere even vaguely near the West Coast, I'll schedule a time to come listen in on an open-mic night. :-)

I think it's cool you and Ben have become friends and stuff.

I never add bands to my MySpace, but hey, I know you two, and you two rock:P

aww, thank you, my dear! i'm really glad that he and i have become such good friends, too. i guess we just needed to get away from both of our pasts in phoenix to really click, or something. he's one of my dearest friends now, there isn't anything i won't tell him ;)

Ah, yesssssss....
'Tis a breath of fresh air. Congratulations on making DA BAND!

I play a little too. I'm not in a band though and I'm still learning.

By the way, that's a beautiful G...whatever it is.

I can now play "Still the One" by Shania Twain, "La Tortura" by Shakira and a host of other songs, a few of them by Alanis Morrisette...this is my own pimpage. Thank you *takes bows*

Good deal on being so friggin talented that you're like Prince in the band...playing everything and still singing!

Re: Ah, yesssssss....
never stop learning! i say as i never touch my instruments except during band practice! i'm certain that once i do, though, that now that i'm taking music theory and stuff, it should start to click a bit more.

good job on playing those songs, i certainly can't play them!

Way to go Aubs!!

I was just thinking about you and music today. I ran across my The Grays CD and was thinking about how you turned me onto them/Jason Falkner.

Congrats and don't forget the little people when you accept your Grammy.

awww, i'm always happy to share my secret stash o music with people that can really appreciate it! :D thank you so much for being open minded about it all!

i've been thinking about you a lot lately, mister. i think it all started when i finally got to watch Xanadu for the first time all the way through.

Eight months! That's a record for you!! :-P

Do I even want to know why watching Xanadu reminded you of me??

aww, and this is when it all began! i heard james' dad called you. pfeh. if he really felt sorry, he'd let his kid out of the basement for one night. cristel was still totally cool about it, i was supposed to call her tonight around load in time to let her know FOR SURE, though i totally spaced it off, since daniel and i were eating dinner down the street. her husband/boyfriend/man/whatever also wants to get me into a car and says he can get me into something decent with low monthly car payments. we'll see what he can do, though it won't be until some time next year.

it's always good to have connections.
