Check This Out [Feb. 2nd, 2005|08:54 pm]

Hello 20goto10,

my name is Martin and i get on your Page from the Freezepop-Site, and I¹m
very enthusiastic about your music. I¹m listening to the mp3¹s from your "8
bit demos" since a week!!!

For me it¹s nearly a perfect mix between the old-school Synthie-pop style
(Gary Numan, John Foxx - i¹m very fond of) and new influences with modern
Production-methods.
Also terrific melodies and a very strong vocals!!! I¹m stunned!!!
Especially the Titles "in heaven" and "wrong connection" are my favourites!

Now, i¹ve got a question:
How can i get your CD - "8 bit demos"?
And how much will it cost?
Is it really packed in a Floppy-Disc???




greetings
Martin


PS: please be indulgence with my english - especially with the grammatic ;-)

PPS: A Friend of mine and me got also a synthie-pop
Band named "File not Found" here in Germany.

I am home from work being sickly. This absolutely sucks. No wonder I don't miss this noise. I think I hate television. I could try and get through that Lord of the Rings DVD I picked up but I doubt I will have the patience for that either. Oh well. I guess I am just destined to be bored as hell and sick on top of it. Bill is sick as well. I am pretty sure we have the same thing except when he talks he sounds like Kermit the frog. We have a bunch of shows coming up that I am not particularly excited about. I'm not sure why it is. I think procrastinating on this record so much has caused me to lose interest somewhat.

I have kinda dug myself into a hole. It has been quite some time since I had last updated this. I am looking to change that. It has more or less been an issue of the content of this journal and the time period it reflected being totally different than how I feel today. All I can say is that over the last few months I have realized that some people are hopeless. Oh well. So there has been so many things that have happened I don't nearly have the patience to sit here for an hour and try and list them all. I would like to before I go say two things. That I plan on actually updating this thing from now on. Also, I would like to thank Niki Goble for her love and support through everything that has taken place.

The last couple of days have been interesting to say the least. Obviously I talked about Sybs alot and I'm sure all of you are wondering what happened. Well to be honest it was great then it went away. I'm not particularly pissed or depressed about it. Over the weekend I was kinda a mess though. It's alright, I still maintain that she is a spectacular person and I have nothing but luv for her I suppose. I do however reccomend that if you the reader find yourself in a situation where you are so depressed you don't even want to move. Go and pick up a Polyphonic Spree album or get them both. Then listen to them for about 2 days straight. Everything will be right as rain.

I have been vigilant in recording even though I have had to work on songs that right now kinda hurt to have to deal with. We have finally started working on the planetarium/seas content song. For those of you who don't know. Bill and I ressurected Sea's Content from an album we made in 1999. I have tried many times to bring it back but this time it seems it's actually working. It's quite a gorgeous song. I'm trying to fill this album with really beautiful stuff. I realize that our music itself tends to be quite aggressive. (as aggressive as pussy synth music can be) I am trying to balance out that dynamic with 4 or 5 pretty instrumentals (so far). The tracks I put down today sound totally fantastic. I will be sooooo happy when this is actually finished. Bill and I have also been rehearsing every night this week. We changed the set around so we have to go back to trying to familiarize ourselves with all the sounds and mixing the songs together and so forth.

Sara is still in England, she gets back tomorrow I think. I miss her terribly. I especially missed her on friday. I really needed someone to talk to. The problem is I'm not the kind of person who wants to put that burden on their friends. I realize that that's what they are for but nonetheless. I am pretty confident that our show on friday will be really good. We have been working really hard on improving everything. That's one thing I really like about us. Is that we are never content and always looking for ways to improve upon things. I think that helps alot to keep things fresh. We were just asked to play at the Beachland Ballroom with Action Action! That's really exciting considering the Beachland is the final place to play on our gig wish list. I guess it's time to move on to more territories. Not entirely unlike risk. I have a few more things to say but I am going to wait until those develop to report on them.

I saw a million stars in your eyes.
Your smile made me want to die.
You were the most beautiful thing to ever happen to me.

I woke up today at 9 and mowed the lawn. I then went over the set and made some new sounds. It's only like noon and I have accomplished quite a bit. It's somewhat crazy. I have been so busy I haven't had time to update this thing in quite some time. The last few days I have been recording. It's starting to come together and sound reaaaally good and it isn't even mixed or anything. We still do have quite a bit to do on it. I am pretty much finished with my tracks. Bill needs to do the rest of his yet. Then comes the Sara tracks and vocoder. The vocoder will be tricky because I'm pretty sure the ones we use aren't that great for recording. So I will try and find one that is good. Ideally I would have a thousand bucks to spend a Korg VC-10 which in my opinion is the greatest vocoder ever! I am quite excited about our upcoming shows. I think they will be great. I haven't been feeling great today. I'm pretty sure it's mostly from nerves, which kinda sucks but oh well. I haven't had a chance to hang out with "HardCore" Corey Jenkins lately. Essentially because my car has been in the shop for like two weeks. Which initially was supposed to be 3 days. Bah! I am baking Sybs a german chocolate cake tonight. I hope she likes it =].
