PAX, music, & problems

First off, we really want to thank all of you again who we’ve met at PAX or since. The response we’ve gotten already has just been incredible. So much so, that we’ve decided to leave the freebies up for a while longer. So download away and spread ’em around while they’re hot.

We also want to apologize to the non 3Gs iPhone & earlier Blackberry users out there. We didn’t realize those devices would have such a hard time scanning our QR code. And as a way of (hopefully) making up for the frustration involved, we’ve got a special surprise in store. So keep checking back, and hopefully we’ll have it up by the end of the week. Lets just say it’ll be radical, excellent, and probably totally tubular. For now…it’s back to the pizza and ooze for us.

PAX East: Friday

Day one has come and gone. I think we must have walked close to 10 miles in all, but it was worth it and then some. Aside from all of the great panels, excellent exhibits and console rooms (my personal fav), we got to meet a ton of cool people.
Like these guys. Not only were the costumes spot on and the poses tight, they seemed to be in character…the entire time. We also got to chat with the people at Bonus-Level.com about their podcast, which is totally excellent. Be sure to check it out.

I personally had a fanboy moment when I got to meet both Jonathan Coulton and Storm of Paul & Storm. They were both very friendly and funny, taking time to talk with me before moving on to the next signing. Storm even signed our swag.

To all of you that we got to talk with, we hope you like the music and continue to come back for more. We’ve got several more tunes in the works, so check back often! Hope to see you all at PAX next year!

How to: Put together a band, material and a strategy in less than 3 weeks (aka “What not to do”)

So here we are less than two days from our self-imposed deadline of March 26th…the start of PAX East. Looking over my To-do list, another wave of panic saturated defeat washes over me as I realize what’s still left to do. Attempting to soldier on, I think back to how this whole thing started.

Beer. Yep…lots of beer is to blame. Curse you Sam Adams and your oh so tasty nectar! It’s your fault that we thought it possible to cobble this together in time for PAX. Your fault that we believed it possible to not only write quality songs, but record them with semi-professional results in time. And still your fault for leading us to believe that even with our rather clever marketing ploy that people would actually enjoy our hastily assembled odes to nostalgia and bacon.

Under the power of your wicked spell, we soldier on. Creating, scheming and cursing along an uncertain path, in hopes of finding our pot of gold…or lucky charms at the end. Now with the end in sight, and more uncertainty than ever, we scramble to patch the holes of a sinking ship. Anxiously awaiting the UPS man or begrudgingly fixing a drum track made too short. We’re as ready as we’re ever going to be, and we hope that you are too.

We’ll be in the back with Sam if you need us.
