- practices have been going extremely smooth. here are the songs we've pretty much gotten down;

"FUNERAL HOME MARIONETTES"
"CONJUGAL APPARITION"
"THE MASOCHISTIAN"
"MECHA-HORRIPILATION"
"DIVORCE MEDITATION"
"HYPNAGOGIC CAREGIVER"
"OPTIMUM HEARSE"

here's the ones we've started to get down;

"CALIGULA FAIRGROUNDS"
"POSTCARDS FROM SOLITARY"
"CLOCK HALT"

and finally, the ones we haven't played yet, but are planning on getting down;

"WOLF TICKET BOX OFFICE"
"MAUSOLEUM LOTHARIO"
"IRON LUNG DUST BOWL"
maybe "TARANTULA KITCHEN" (if only for recording purposes)

that's as far as we're going with songs that are already written. we might be retiring a couple of songs, cause we're tired of some of this shit and we wanna make the most of this new line-up, and the best way to do that is compose new songs together.

that being said; we've got more than enough material for a set, and we'll be recording most if not all of it this coming summer for assorted splits and compilations. you can find out all the info on Nom De Plume Records.

- what is Nom De Plume Records, you ask? why it is none other than Lee and Jimmy's label, which will specialize in ugliness i'm sure. give it a look and add them.

- new favorite bands; SPLITTER , PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI , and THE HUMAN GUENA ORCHESTRA

What I really lack is to be clear in my mind what I am to do, not what I am to know, except in so far as a certain knowledge must precede every action. The thing is to understand myself, to see what God really wishes me to do: the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die. ... I certainly do not deny that I still recognize an imperative of knowledge and that through it one can work upon men, but it must be taken up into my life, and that is what I now recognize as the most important thing.

—Søren Kierkegaard, Letter to Peter Wilhelm Lund dated August 31, 1835, emphasis added[28]

Rabbit Eggs


- next shit is May 16th, as seen above. We'll be taking part in an underground metal rite of passage; opening up a crowded fest.

seriously though, we're psyched and looking forward to checking out a good bulk of the bands. DEAD INFECTION and SAYYADINA have been on my playlist fairly regularly for the last few years, and that's the day we're playing, so that's pretty badass.

this will be our first show with Joe on the drums, and if the recent practice/jam sessions we've had with him in the past few weeks are any indication, we should be at the top of our game come Auditory Assault. We'll have a solid set of mostly new material... and we'll more than likely have the split 7 inch in our possesion by that time, and some new t-shirts.

- also in the works for the start of the summer is a small tour with the crazy awesome TRANSIENT. go to our Myspace for the dates and to check out TRANSIENT in our top friends.

- that's all. Merry Rabbit Egg Day.

"So shall we come to look at the world with new eyes. It shall answer the endless inquiry of the intellect, — What is truth? and of the affections, — What is good? by yielding itself passive to the educated Will. ... Build, therefore, your own world. As fast as you conform your life to the pure idea in your mind, that will unfold its great proportions. A correspondent revolution in things will attend the influx of the spirit."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
