We've finally got a piece of the pie

today LAMB OF GOD was 7th most popular search on all of Yahoo! Awesome.

funny how being a metal head makes me get so much stupid pleasure from something so silly like that, but I guess it is just nice to know they are probably annoying someone.

Today was great. I mean, relatively...No, it was pretty rad.

I interviewed Jarboe which was very exciting, one of my favorite artists ever. She is just amazing and we got to have really involved conversations on all manner of stuff from songwriting to aesthetics to spiritual stuff and philosophy, so it was a real treat and also a nice reminder that art is the life force and you have to nurture it. You can't let it be other than what it must be for anyone else's sake. It should be born as it is intended.

Show your true colors.

Was also thinking a lot about Coatlicue, the serpent skirted diety. Death and birth and personification and the feminine power in nature. Subverted of her Chthonic roles by Christian "conquerors". Really they were selling themselves short.

My stomach is really bothering me. Worried I might have an ulcer.
Have no money and work six days a week + all the writing. Not so fun right now struggling like this but I really, really believe in it.

Seeds and death and shoots and old roots and what goes leaves fertilizer.

There's always something more out there. I am not settling or fully satisfied (by a long shot, ha!) but atleast I have some comfort in that if it all was over today, I know I have done some good, even though I'd be lost to time...then again, so shall we all be...

Look deep into any eyes you dare.

It's our call. We're not the lost.

Interviewing Weerd Science for AMP this week, and also rest of Mours, many of whom were in DIVEST with me. Gonna be cool, as when DIVEST broke up and Parker got the Coheed gig, Nate Kelley and I started Pontius Pilate Sales Pitch stronger and most of the rest of DIVEST ended up in the short lived Counterfeit Disaster project, which has a lot of same members as Mours.
We've butted heads hard at times but it has really smoothed out lately and I am thankful for that.
As for Pontius, we're still giving it a go. We hope to find a label this year or atleast a way to get more wind in our sails. It's hard because all the miscommunication and battling between us and Coheed and stuff over the last few years was rough, but no one can say we haven't done whatever victories we've had on our own. We've fought hard to keep this band alive and hopefully it'll continue to remain that way. And I'm glad relations have improved mostly all around even if they aren't ideal.
I really want to record PPSP's two records worth of material and get satisfactory results. Especially the song "Rain Bridge", that this blog was named after and that represents the formative years of the scene I've lived in that spawned all these bands starting around 1994.
Make it yours.
