A Series of Sneak(y Updates)

mrfuriousrecords.com – Tonight I updated the Buddypress core and Facebook login.  That broke some things…  but everything (except Facebook – which I will work on presently) is back and the Activity page actually looks better than ever.  ALSO: FINALLY got the main nav drop-downs in line, though there’s one more little bit to fix there.  Thank Ifni for Firebug; would never have found the problem without it.

Shows – In a moment of actual semi-rock-star-ness, I rolled out of bed 10 minutes before needing to hit the road for the pancake gig.  And forgot my songbook.  So the 105-minute set (!) consisted of hastily scribbled down tunes from “…not nothing,” “Ventura,” Five Star Crush, Cory, and even a couple from “It’s a Trap.”  But it was a ton of fun, Tim jammed along, and everyone seemed cool with it (including an off-duty cop).  Since then I’ve also done four 15-minute sets at work to promote the last round of “Songs of -h,” which I’m offering in exchange for a donation to the local scholarship fund.  I’ve done “Coast & Plains” and “Snow is a Bear” at each one, and then mixed in other stuff for the third tune.

“…Boots” – Tim and I went way long at his first session, so we had to plan another.  And he was sick over the weekend, so we missed it, and are now aiming for early November.  I’m still hoping for a November release, especially since I don’t know of any forthcoming XMAS jams for 2010.

Loud Weird Band – Still technically without a name, the band-maybe-known-as-Exploder-Mode-or-Anteatereater-or-Phantom-Nukes-or-Chrome-Satellites had our first practice with my new bass amp (ridiculously great) and I have a new round of mixes of the first six tunes out to the other guys that I’m finally satisfied with.  Drew and I have also done vocals on the 7th tune (he did lead, and murdered it) and are ready to mix that.
