Here are some pictures of my new band that I will be playing in starting (and ending) on November 28th.

Obviously if you don't like my new band, I'll laugh in your face. Oh yeah, and check out our bio.
Logic is a Hip-Hop/Hardcore band based out of Pittsburgh Pa. Since Logic formed in late 1996, they have been gaining added respect from fans and fellow bands in the Pittsburgh underground music scene. Bringing a variety of musical backgrounds together under one common goal is never an easy task, but Logic creates a melee of music that has since been unheard of. Logic's music has strong influences from hardcore, hip-hop, metal, punk, and anything else they can pick up along the way. Although their style is diverse, it never compromises its heavy groove or its appeal to Logic's ever-faithful fan base.
Since the release of their debut CD, "Straight Up Chaos", in May of 1998, Logic has enjoyed a host of great reviews and extensive touring in Pennsylvania and throughout West Virginia, Ohio, and New York. Da' Core magazine (Pittsburgh) says, "These guys kick hip-hop/hardcore that closely rivals national acts like Downset and Dog Eat Dog. Being as young and talented as they are right now, I can't imagine what will come out of these guys in the future. They are a definite find for any label that wants to grab a new young band." In the past year, Logic has worked its way into the close-nit family of the Pittsburgh heavy music scene. Playing shows with Pittsburgh best hardcore bands and opening for national acts such as Biohazard, Clutch, System of a Down, Face to Face, Candiria, Straight Faced, and Shutdown has helped Logic develop their style as well as their infamous live show. In the next few years, Logic plans to continue touring and spreading its musical message to all who will accept it. With another CD slated for release sometime in the summer of 1999, Logic will certainly continue to give the music scene and its fans all it can give at every show. Logic is currently in search of an established record label to help with their next album and to help them gain more exposure on the national level.

After tonight's show, we'll be making a late night drive up to Boston because we have a show there that starts at 1:00 in the afternoon. I always enjoy Beantown, and I also always enjoy calling it Beantown. My favorite beans would probably be Baked Beans, followed closely by French Cut Green Beans. My middle school shop teacher's nickname was "Beans" as well. My Uncle Gus also once told me a story about a guy named Beans giving him shit. Beans wasn't too happy about Uncle Gus throwing him in the puddle though. The funny part was that Beans' Uncle Hippo watched the whole thing and didn't do shit.

Now that I have internet everywhere I go and also a totally kickass new computer, I'm very glad that I can blog from everywhere that I go. Today I'm blogging straight from a couch in the back of a place called "Billy Baloney's" in Danbury, Connecticut. If it wasn't for my dedication to playing the bass, I'd probably never have been in Billy Baloney's, let alone Danbury. I'm glad that this place is named after a really great Pee-Wee character.
I spent 26 dollars today, and I don't have much to show for it. I spent 6.95 on a turkey sandwich at a rest stop today, which seemed ridiculously overpriced, but I absolutely could NOT let myself stoop to eating ROY ROGERS (quite possibly the worst of all fast-food restaurants!) I also bought myself a Hershey bar with almonds (mmm) and a copy of the new Time magazine with the new prez on the cover because my subscription just ran out. I had a magazine subscribing phase this past year, and I learned my lesson pretty well. Here is my list of good and bad magazines:
Mental Floss (my favorite magazine, of course)
Sports Illustrated (mainly because my subscription spanned the length of the Olympics and baseball season, my 2 least favorite sporting events)
Bass Player (I mainly subscribed to this so I could set it on my coffee table to humorously make my friends think that I love reading about bass playing)
I'm real glad that Sarah decided to start blogging as well. You can check her blog out over in my list of links on the side of this blog. Its worth checking out, especially for her great picture of her dog King. I think after she blogs ten times, I'm going to buy her a domain name (the gift that keeps on giving!)
Tony and I really started getting the word out about Whistle Pig today. I really think that our book is going to change the way people look at the world. I also think its gonna change the way people look at groundhogs, gnomes, hitchhikers, well-water, and zebras. I also think that its pretty amazing that David Wain did a reading of "Pregnant Guys" for us. What a great and cool famous guy. As soon as I get as famous as David Wain, I am surely going to be that cool to people trying to aspire to be as cool as me.
I'm hoping to get to hang with my bud Greg Wood tonight after the show. Here is the coolest youtube that Greg Wood and I probably ever made.

I was at a show at this very small club on top of a hill, hanging out with my favorite Canadian band Propagandhi. I didn't recognize any of the guys in the band (because they had an all-new lineup...I was disappointed that the guy from The Weakerthans wasn't in the band anymore, but his replacement was very friendly). I then had to use the restroom, but there was no restroom at the club. I had to get in my car and drive through the snow back to my house (which obviously wasn't my house). Once I got there, I went to open the bathroom door, but right before I did I noticed that the door was slightly cracked and I heard someone in there. I waited outside the door, heard a flush, and who comes walking out? None other than Angela Lansbury (of Murder She Wrote!)
If someone can try to explain to me what this dream means, I'd really appreciate it. I bet Dr. Melfi could. I'd also like to give a shout out to the guys in my band for turning the heat completely off in the middle of the night so that I could wake up multiple times because of the cold. If it wasn't for that, I probably wouldn't have remembered this monumental dream.
I'm gonna go get a shower and go to Chicago now.
