    Well, I'm back from the Warped Tour. All and all, I had great time. Signing bare breasts in Charlotte was the highlight! :bassist: :cool: Anyway, I became VERY close friends with alot of the bands there. My faves were Yellowcard (they're like fam), Chronic Future (love those guys!), Opiate For The Masses (like fam), Bad Religion, Tiger Army (bassist rule in his upright kingdom!) Story of the Year (amazing live show), & Spell Toronto out of San Diego. If you ever get a chance to see Billy Talent, go!!! The after parties were amazing! After the NYC gig, the drummer from Yellowcard rented a suite and invited us and about 50 chicks, and well, some things should stay in NYC! :eyebrow: ;) I don't know how it happened, but the staff and other bands started to spread the word about us, and alot of those guys became big fans of ours. This tour was much better than the last time we went. Okay, what did I miss?

    When i interviewed Yellowcard i thought they were egotistical knobs. (just imho)

    Especially that violin fornicator. What a.... *mumble mumble*

    Glad you had fun @ Warped. Its a cool show, i wish it came in its entirety to England.

    Did you by chance catch Mofofunka at the Jersey show over the weekend? My friend plays the keys for them and they got a last minute gig. He said they didn't really fit the bill but people seemed to dig it.
  7. Hey Woodchuck, I just took a listen to your El Pus tracks. That stuff is alot of fun. Very cool.

    Any way I could get an EP or Lp-er? gladly drop the dough.

    PM me, and we'll do business.

    LOL! Shawn is an aquired taste. He can be sorta harsh at times.
  9. Woodchuck. I'm a nice little boy. But for two years I've been waiting on the EP to come to my door... TWO *$(%*#$*%(#)*% YEARS!
  10. Well, you could d.l. the songs off the website and listen to whenever...

    I rekon.

    Maybe that's what I'll do, but really Woodchuck, I'd like to support a fellow trench-workin bassist is all. I'd truly like to have it. I enjoy what I've heard alot. Fun, heavy funky quasi- Fishbone inspired pogofest.

    Haha, exactly. It makes my gig on a sidestage tomorrow night for Fear Factory seem fairly insignificant. :)

    Glad to hear things went well Woodchuck! Keep living the life.

    Enjoy that one vegaas... I saw Fear Factory last week and it was definately a night to remember.

    Woodchuck, did you get to hear Underoath play? I'm curious to know if they've abandoned all of the old, more christian-based songs they wrote on their first two albums with the old front-man.

    Ha, I saw them on Conan (I think) and I thought, wow, a pop punk band with a violin player, this might be kinda cool. And it could have, if the violin player concerned himself with playing his instrument instead of being :cool:
