Subject; Your Ball
I can’t figure out why people constantly confuse our voices either- we don’t sound particularly alike (you are usually dead-on pitch, I waver; you can hold a note for longer than a few second without coughing up a lung; when I try to go above a certain note, my voice crackles like a 12 year old’s, etc.). But I know at least a few other people who have. Why is that, I wonder? Do we sound alike but not know it? I guess to us, it’s obvious who’s singing. Especially when you examine the lyrics:
Howie: “Important universal theme explained in abstract metaphors!”
Cory: “Waaaaaah! Drinking too much! Girlfriend dumped me 5 years ago and I still whine about it! WAAAAAHHHH! DRINKING!”

SO MANY PEOPLE MIX UP OUR SINGING VOICES!?!?!?!? what is it!?!?!
we’re both fairly straight-tone choir boys, but i mean, c’mon! my throat is
unmolested by alcohol, direct cigarette smoke, rush chants, and repeated
bouts of clamidia! you’ve got to be like lemmy k. to my antony!

You morbid bastard! How dare you name your band after that poor woman!
Okay, seriously? Anyone dumb enough to confuse the two doesn’t really merit a whole lot of your attention anyway. Duh. Hello? Jr. High History class? Were you there? (actually, I’m old enough to remember both of them being in the news!)
The album sounds great! I made the family listen to it on a road trip a week or so ago. The songs are really well written and is that Corey singing on them? He sounds great!
Subject; not Christa McAuliffe
Uncle Dave; I’m assuming you got the Sally Ride disc. Anxious to hear what you think.
For the record, tons of people ask us if the band is named “Sally Ride” after the woman astronaut who died in the Challenger explosion. It isn’t. Sally Ride was the first American woman in space, in the early 80’s. Christa McAuliffe (I think I spelled right) was the woman teacher/astronaut who died in the Challenger accident. Just so you know. Naming a band “Christa McAuliffe” would take an Iggy Pop-level of punk-ness.
