First of all, thanks to everyone who came out to Saturday's party at The Frequency. I had an awesome time onstage and I hope that everybody had as much fun in the crowd as I did. Also, thanks for help with the music video, we'll have it out in the next couple of weeks as I take some time to edit together the multiple cameras along with some other scenes for the video. And everybody that brings new friends to each of these parties, thank you so much. 2009 has been one of our most exciting years yet, and it's really because everyone that comes together for these shows and makes them such a fantastic experience.
And I know I sound like a massive wuss, but it's true. Now, on to something a touch more vulgar.
Our brand new single, "Trashy Hot" is up and available for download just by clicking here.
I think someone was asking me on Saturday what the new song was about and really it shouldn't take much explanation but I'll try to help. "Trashy Hot" is similar thematically to our song, "Meat Market", but on the opposite side of the spectrum. While "Meat Market" condemned the hooking-up culture and its emotionally meaningless physical liaisons, "Trashy Hot" is a celebration of it. A lot of times you're hanging out with dudes and their porno and Victoria's Secret-addled minds have made them believe that real live actual women are supposed to look like that. Not only does that make women feel horrible about themselves (which equals feeling less sexy and we all know where that leads), it also means that a lot of men would rather go spend time with their hands than with someone who doesn't quite meet their physical ideal. Not that people shouldn't be careful with their gift of sexuality, but Christ Almighty, there's a lot of people who just need to let their preconceived and advertisement-programmed notions of beauty go and get laid. The character in this song couldn't agree more. We hope you enjoy the new tune!

1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
1 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
6 oz clear lemon-lime soda
Half-fill a clear 12 oz. glass with ice. Pour 1.5 oz Vanilla Vodka, 1.5 oz Blue Curacao, and 6 oz. CLEAR lemon/lime soda over the ice. Stir lightly, and Enjoy!
Anyway, I can't wait until "Planet of the Dead" is on at Easter (or at least until the torrents go up!) so that I can give this one a try. But I might be tempted to get some classic episodes and do it sooner. Oh well, if I have a Doctor Who party, I'll make sure to let everybody know. You can find the original article here.

If I may be so bold to ask a favor, if anyone has a video camera and can help us tape one song on Saturday night, that'd be fucking awesome. We're looking to get as many shots as possible during the song and if we got a few cameras recording it would be awesome.
Of course, we'll buy you a beer and give you credit on the video for helping out (and we'd provide the tapes - has to be digital though, because I don't have a VHS capture device right now.)
Anyway, please send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), tweet, Facebook, or whatever and let us know if you can help and thanks in advance!

Now we're enjoying a little of the phenomenal Austin weather before we hop in the van and head back to Wisconsin.
Stay tuned, I'm going to try to post the drummercams and some other highlights from the weekend during the drive home!

Cobra, you see, ran out of money and needed to find a way to pay back their creditors, so Zartan and The Dreadnoks form a band called Cold Slither and they use subliminal messages to get the song to Number One.
However, as you can see in the 'Making of' the "Cold Slither" video, they didn't need to do any subliminal messages because the song is ridiculously kickass.
If you'd like to spend some quality time watching the whole episode, here's Part One, Part Two, and Part Three
And of course, I'm gonna see the new movie when it comes out in August. If the Ninth Doctor agreed to be in it, the script had to be at least pretty good.

Here's a few photos of the man in action and here's a video for Guided by Voices' "My Kind of Soldier", where you can see him dancing.
I just saw that they were making a doc on him and I thought it was cool. The dude loves live music shows and he's a nice guy. We could use more of him!
