You may have noticed that aside from writing lengthy diatribes about old punk records, I haven’t had much to say about anything else. This isn’t intentional, it’s just that I don’t have a lot to say. Even Lady Combustion says “your blog is boring, all you do is write about records”. When I explain to her that people actually like that stuff and she should read those entries, she just says, “why, when I have the source right here who can tell me long-winded stories about records all day long”.
Work has been extremely hectic and I’ve been working longer hours as we try to finish this project. On those days, I get home, watch TV for an hour and go to sleep. There hasn’t been any shows lately that I want to see and my free time has been at a minimum. When this project is done, I plan to meet up with my klowns for some long-overdue drinking. I haven’t hung out with those guys in quite awhile and I miss that.
I finished up the NOFX CD layout for Mystic Records and am finally about to start on the Flower Leperds retrospective CD. This will collect all their Mystic recordings. I’m pretty excited to be putting this together and it should turn out really cool. I have a few more weeks of chaos at work before things slow down and I return to normalcy and then I’ll have the free time I need to put this together.
I will also soon start work on the Government Issue CD I’m releasing. It will be the demo 7″ plus a live show from that same era so it will be a full length release. I also need to press up a couple hundred more of the 7″ to fulfill a couple of distros request. I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and take care of it.
I am trying to come up with the money to buy a new laptop. I really want one but don’t have the cash. I need to come up with some money so I can do this. I will have to sell some crap on ebay to hopefully help finance this. Also, does anyone want to buy some used furniture? I have a vintage dinning room set in excellent condition that is easily as old as me but still is in near-perfect shape. Also if anyone wants to buy a Wizard of Wor arcade game, I have one for sale for $250 and it is in good working condition. Xmas, and some medical bills really kicked my ass recently and I’m low on the funds.
MXV-that’s great news about the G.I. CD release. Would you consider posting something from Tom Lyle’s “Sanctuary” solo record from 1992 or the Rollkicker Laydown single? Thanks-from the ether of Daghouse!
Damn! I can’t believe I had to come here to find out about the GI CD. WTF?!?
Sign me up for several of them, and let me know if you need my help with anything. I say we need to get together for some drinks one night too!
Do you think Mystic could be persuaded to reissue Party or Go Home next?!
Steve: It is already done, I know cuz I worked on it. There is a CD called “Superseven presents Sixty Bands” and it fearues The “Party or Go home” comp, plus one half of “Party Animal”. After the Flower Leperds CD is done, I’m working on the sequal which will have the rest of “Party Animal” and all of “We Got Party”.

Heh… sounds familiar… good luck on raising the money – I hear Rollins is snarfing up 7″s on e-Bay…
Belated thanks for the tip re Superseven Presents Sixty Bands – I’m on the case right now.
