I spent about an hour today running around frantically trying to find the cassette tape that has my 2002 CJAM performance on it.
Before moving, I knew exactly where this tape was. Today it wasn’t in its case. It didn’t seem to be anywhere at all.
This wasn’t good. That tape is the only surviving document of those live radio performances of “Filler” and “Unstable Things”. I worked up a sweat looking everywhere I could think of. Nothing.
Defeated, I sat down at my desk in the studio…and saw the tape was right in front of my face. It was resting on top of a mic preamp the whole time. I put it there so I wouldn’t have to go looking for it.
It was then that the world heard what may be the loudest dirty word ever uttered by a living person.
Well, maybe not. But it was still pretty loud.
Also, I have a Myspace page. Scary, I know. I made the page almost a year ago, only to learn Myspace streaming made my music sound pretty horrible. So I removed the songs and tried to kill my page. Myspace wouldn’t let me delete it.
Today I thought, “If I can’t get rid of the thing, I might as well have some fun with it,” and spent some time adding a bit of stuff. I even found a way to put music up there without allowing it to pass through Myspace’s shitty streaming.
I realize this is a very important day for the human race. The repercussions may not be truly felt until years from now, but lives have been enriched, and the entire course of history has been altered.
