Hey, just curious if there's any update on the new stuff you guys have been working on, if you've started recording yet or anything, etc.

Unfortunately all I have to report is . . . meh. Everyone is busy being responsible adults. I miss college.

In the meantime I highly recommend "Call Me Fitz". Jason Priestly's (that's right Brandon fucking Walsh) magnum opus.

Fair enough. Figured that was probably the case. You're all kind of scattered around the state right now, too, right? So, that probably doesn't really help.

actually we're not "leaderless, divided" like the people of middle earth.

Myself and Dylan live in St. A, and Wily n Mr. Wayne both live in Orlando. Dylan and I have been practicing BC, all 3 movements because, well, we are going to play it live at some point in the future. Until then we are keeping it secret, keeping it safe.

Holy shit, that would be amazing. BC beats Mario 3 as your longest song, doesn't it? That would be like half the concert, but it would kick ass, haha.

And at least you guys are in two cities, that isn't too bad. You can do like half-band practice pretty regularly.

Haha, awesome. Also, you were 20(ish?) when you guys started?

Man, this forum has been up for almost a decade now, how crazy is that?

Seriously, I do hope you guys to get to do BC live, that would be awesome.

...has anyone actually tried to beat that game in the time it takes you to play the song? Might be kind of awesome to watch someone speed run it while you guys are playing. :cookieshmm:

I didn't think it would be, haha. There's no way you can beat that game in like 35 minutes, right?

This sounds like a challenge. My brother in-law might be able to. He's excels at both vg and alcohol.

I was 22 to be exact my good man. You, lamentably, weren't allowed into most of our shows in the early days. That's why I kept opening the window behind my drums so you guys could hear better. I remember the bar owner kept shutting it. It was a battle of wills.

You know, I always really appreciated that. I think I actually got better acoustics sitting outside to be honest, haha.

And that first time you guys played Mario 3 live and I was stuck outside with the other underage neskimites, when you started doing the world 1 map music, the wind blew and all of the cattails planted by the window kind of bobbed in time to the music. It was glorious.

While we're being nostalgic, are you guys planning on doing a Valentines Day show again?

That was the first time I ever heard El Scorcho, and I love that song now.

If you can find a place to do another one of those shows, I'll so be there. :awesome:

If they have a venue for it, I'd love to go see them do that again.

Like, given how good the vocals are between Bruce and Wily, I'd love to see them do more with that.

Doesn't NapalmMan still have the old v-day shows audio up on FGJ? I think he does.
