Holy crap!
People seemed to dig it.

Transcript from the completely distorted clip Mike recorded on his iPod:

Mike: My iPod's recording right now. This is at the DNA right now, dude. At the show. They're playing your shit.
Billy?: Fuckin' a. Go Aki!
Mike: All right dude, I don't want to stand here looking like an idiot.


Speaking of, I wrote, recorded, and mixed down that entire remix in Reason 4... after chopping up the vocals in ReCycle. I have a shit ton of gear that's not being used right now. I'm going to give it some time to see, but I foresee some gear churn in the not too distant future. 'Cause there are new toys I want to play with.

Aki: Have you seen the APC 40? I haven't tried it, but that thing might let me play all the loops myself while I'm soloing.
Aaron: (laughing) You really don't want to deal with anyone else, do you?
Aki: ... No. No, I really don't.

[edit] Still really proud of being part of this cd, especially this remix. This is a rare and precious thing.

Excited about seeing Insect again. And I could definitely go for some local metal.

If you're coming, come early; it starts at 8 and I think we're first.

Work has [re]begun on the Slave Unit remix album. We just passed Mike's "The Hammer!" deadline for remix submissions. I managed to sidestep mastering duties; Chris has been pressed into duty there.

Shawn's remix kicked my ass.

I finished version 24 of Go this past weekend and submitted it; then Chris asked for my Etched remix as well. When I sent that I noticed the timestamp on it was from March, 2008. Oops. This is how projects take forever to finish.

We're throwing cover ideas around over email... it'll probably be something simple.

Mike's only planning on pressing a couple hundred physical copies. We'll see how that goes.

i think the thing i'm happiest about is that we took a cover that was blah (depeche mode's stripped; we've played it before but it definitely needed a kick in the ass), redid it, and despite the fact that mike was hesitant about doing it since he was singing sans vocal effects (technical difficulties + short soundcheck), the people i heard from loved it.

Slave Unit cuts a manic swath across the punk, industrial, rock and hip-hop arenas, finely dicing chunks of each into a cauldron of social and personal frustrations topped with a sharp dose of piss and vinegar. Gritty and raw, yet meticulously structured, The Battle for Last Place is a successful melding of grainy guitars, rockin’ beats and enough bitterly shouted vitriol to make a unicorn cry. What sets the album apart is the simple consistency in which it offers great songs. There’s no filler here—just a versatile blend of kick-ass that’s sure to hit a chord with anyone who hears it.

That kicked serious ass.

an iNob full of firefighters. two rollercoasters; a combined thirty seconds of "what was i thinking?" followed by stupid fun. an ex-singer's ex-girlfriend. two female bartenders' buttcrack uniforms. amazing bread at the top of the world. a die hard fan from philly. maybe ten hours of solid sleep, combined. subway pizza in front of the western wear shop. pho at 4am. two bandmembers enter sick, three leave sick (*cough*).

the view from the stratosphere.

There were a few people with cameras and camcorders in the audience... [ profile] elevatordown pointed out we're now on YouTube.

Remember boys and girls, we're going to be playing in Vegas and SF this Friday and Sunday next, respectively: details.
