Blogging, Schmogging

The word blog is so funny to me.  It sounds like something you should excuse yourself for doing.  "I blogged, excuse me. "  Maybe some people should, and maybe I will have to in the future. 

So Camden and I had this same exact idea yesterday to create a blog about our band Cavedoll.  We are part of the generation that constantly has to reveal itself to others.  I think that stems from not enough parental attention and being raised by television.  Nothing is private.  Nothing will far as the band goes anyway.  Here is it my first blog.  Pardon me....

We had practice last night.  It went pretty well.  We were trying out a drummer.  Jamison, the drummer that is on almost all of the tracks, has become a pilot instructor.  He has been working crazy long hours and has been loving every second of it.  We are all really proud of him for making his dream come true.  Well, with all that dream making some thing have got to take a back seat, and that was us.  We are cool with it, its not an issue.  We were going to use the backing track and the videos when he couldn't play with us, so we had options.  We were trying out another drummer because there are just things a DVD player can't do that a human can, well a lot of things.  We have had problems in the past with the videos and it has been a source of stress off and on.  I like it and I hate it.

Saturday we are playing on Circus Brown's show, Not a Side Show on KRCL 90.9 at 10p.m.  You should tune in if you can.  I am freaked out because I don't even like to leave messages on peoples' voice mail let a lone chat it up on the F-ING RADIO!!!  Listen in to see if I make an ass out of myself.  We are playing Decoder, Dive the Night Away, and The Shadow.  Plus, some unreleased stuff that we just recorded.  Camden can't stop making songs it is a compulsion.  I will write all about it afterward so you all get the behind the mic dirt!  I think that this will become my compulsion, beside yarn, this is pretty fun.  ~Besitos~ Knessa

When Nolens Volens and I played on Circus Brown, he asked:

"Do you guys use drugs?"
"Do you guys use drugs?"
"Um...when we're making music? No...and no?"

I think he was offering. It was fun. I thought we would get to play our influences, but it was a bit more lowkey.

Congrats on the new blog. I agree - it does sound like a dirty word. Go blog yourself!

That is so fun that you're going to be on the radio. Your words will be immortalized FOREVER! No worries - I'm sure you'll do great. :)

Blogs and kisses,

Blogging sounds like a word you could throw in anywhere like the Smurfs do with smurf.
