Re: a simple truth
you misspelled "forehead".
then you'd only be able to read it when you were in the bathroom, and it would be backwards.

but all your friends and even strangers would be constantly reading it out loud to you.
'Dude...how come it says, "You may never know what results come of your action...?"'
I like the way you think Ed
Is she officially with them now? SQUEE!

Very very very true words.
We are all the snake, eating our tails....
sweet barking cheese -- chad michael ward people, right here in my lj! check him out if you don't know him. He's an awesome photographer.
Wow, I haven't thought about Propaganda in years *pulls up Ebay*
We have Coilhouse now & gothic beauty. Back then I think that was the only game in town. I found some of my favorite music in Propaganda.
I loved it for turning me on to Elias Mehringe's movie "Begotten". Got really sad when they slowly faded away.
I like this post as it's timing is needed for me today.
I am curious; has Athan ever said where the first band's name is from? Tubalcain has a meaning to me but I am curious if has the same meaning to him or the band.
it's biblical. and Very Metal (as the young ones would say).
And the world gets smaller again! I knew Sam when he lived in Chicago-he married a friend of mine, Lisa.
I've always held to "support your local musicians" and have said it too. It's amazing what one can find in one's own backyard and even more fun when they do well. Congrats to them and to you!

A simple truth
I thought you grew up in New Jersey!
Your fan mail story reminds me of some advice I was given some years back by Voltaire. My band was opening up for him at a show and we were chit chatting as we set up our respective merch tables. He had a comic book collection he had collaborated with a whole bunch of people on. I asked him how he ended up working with so many cool people. He told me, "If you don't ask, they can't say yes!"
I've since used that advice on many occasions and it's always surprising when people do actually say, "yes!"
Yeah --- that's a great quote, because it's so positive....
"If you don't ask, they can't say yes!"
fantastic photo great work!! I completely agree with you Nicki Jaine is a fantastic talented artist.
You got to follow the clues.
"...and that every step you take should be motion towards."
Towards is good.
