It's been a long, long day at work, chitlins, and Steanso is tired (and the day ain't over!!). Wanted to say hello, but I don't have a lot of what the squares would call "content" for the blog today. There is still Crack practice tonight, and despite his current fatigue, Steanso feels the first twinges of an upswell of energy at the thought. Practice for both of my bands seems to occur in some sort of parallel dimension where the music produces itself, even when you're dead tired. Sometimes while we're playing I find myself just kind of abosrbed in listening to the tunes for awhile without any conscious realization that I'm one of the people who's making the music. Usually this is a good thing, but every once in awhile this sort of autopilot thing leaves you open to making mistakes (moreso with the Mono Ensemble, where the music is liable to change direction and leave you in the dust if you're not paying attention to it- with Crack it's more about the longer, drawn out grooves, although this may be slowly changing). Anyway, band practice is good decompression and it's good for the soul.

Anyway, I hope everyone's having a good one. FOS Erin Stewart (that's Friend of Steanso) has moved back to our area from L.A. and is currently living out in Bastrop (near he family), where she apparently has landed a job at a restaurant or bar or something (which was quick work, because she just got here). Anyway, everyone wish Erin welcome, and let us know if you know of a job opening in Austin, because I think she still wants to move into town.

Not to change the subject or anything but. . . . . Whatever happened to the Absconders?

Well, Biketrash, that's a good question. In order to get an answer, however, you'll probably have to turn to Deborah Kay Punzi, the hard rockin', booze-guzzlin', practice-skippin' drummer from the Absconders. The Absconders were all set to take the Austin music scene by storm when D.K. broke up the band and ruined our chances at going on tour and getting a bunch of groupies. D.K. ruins everything.

I figured it had something to do with that loser Donna Karen!
