Haha. I remember when I asked The Fucking Vold for a copy of that tape. I wonder if you got the one he had made for me. Oh well. If anyone besides Ryan Poulsen can tell us what song we covered as it struck midnight, I'll give you $1 stolen from Whitney's wallet, provided Whitney is in Texas tomorrow.

I was without internet access all weekend. Charter Communcations is a pile of crap.

I put our tour documentary back up. If you've been to the Flash site recently, you'll have to probably empty your cache to see the updated multimedia page. Or, if you used Netscape last time, use IE this time and it'll work. Either way.
An amazing archeological discovery this past weekend. While on an excursion to Madison, a man known only as ?The Fucking Vold? presented me with a relic of our youth? as a band. It?s a video tape of Only Airplanes Count playing with good friends, The Girlfriends at the infamous Space Loft on New Years 96/97. It?s a whole bunch of songs I?d totally forgot ever existed. Some funny stuff.

We should have more tour dates and shows posted soon. Just wait until we got a few more things finalized. Needless to say, we are very excited about this summer, and you should be too.

The new site is up. There may be a few adjustments made in the coming days, but it's in working order, and that's good enough for me. I've spent just about all of my free time on this site for the last week or two. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out; feel free to comment in the guestbook.

Now, it's time to stop neglecting Jessica (sorry...) and go make some food!

I'm about a day or two away from having a new website completely finished, and I'm pretty excited about that, I suppose.

Tonight, I'm contemplating whether or not I feel like going to Rubber Gloves to see Owen and Kyle Fischer. It should probably be a good show, and because of the nature of these "bands", I don't think the incredibly shitty sound at said club would interfere as much.

Anyway, happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

This site should be #10!
Top 10 of today!

1. The new 90 Day Men CD is amazing beyond all belief. If you are a fan of this band, it's not quite what you'd expect, but it's by far one of the best CDs I've ever owned.

2. Cable modem finally grants Whitney internet access at home, and leads him to believe that his computer is not just for writing papers about Rank and Order in the American Colonies and playing addictive computer games when he should be writing said papers.

3. Blogging from home, in due course.

4. Cable (which I haven't actually used).

5. Finishing a paper on Rank and Order in the American Colonies 23 hours prior to it being due. A new personal record for being ahead of schedule.

6. Johnny Cash - American III: Solitary Man (buy it!)

7. Picking up a pay check for having worked 3 hours and immediately spending it on the 90 Day Men and Johnny Cash.

8. Having time after finishing paper to hang out with the Fuckin' Vold, who is in town from Madison for the night.

9. Only coming up with 9 things for a top 10 list.

I posted some shows that we're playing in late April. We still haven't planned out the tour for May/June, but we'll get to that soon. We're trying to work out a few details before we jump into things.

Last night I basically went to see the exact same show that I went to go see the last time we were home from tour, but this time it was at the Globe instead of the 8th Note, which made for a much better show. Sounded amazing. And as I said last time, I demand that anybody with the opportunity to do so, invests a few hours of their time to go see both The Goodboy Suit and The Paper Chase on each of their tours. They have each just put out amazing new EP-ish records on Copter Crash and Divot, respectively. Hats off to Murder in the Red Barn and 1956 for bringing the rock as well. I was also pleasantly surprised to run into Josh, an old friend that we know from playing with Breaker Morant on our first tour ever. We seem to cross paths every couple months and it’s always really good to see him. I wish we could have talked longer, but I didn’t notice he was there until the show was over, and you know how the Globe loves to kick you out as soon as the last band sets down their guitars. I did find out that he has a new band called Tekulvi, who I can't wait to see. If it's anything like his past bands, they will be absolutely amazing. As far as we go as a band, we'd like to apologize for not playing the show last night or the one coming up this Friday at the Logemann Center (which everybody in the immediate area should definatley attend). I know some people had been under the impression that we would be playing either or both, but that’s just simply not possible. On a brighter note though, we will be posting shows for April, May, and June, which will actually include local dates. Gotta run!
