My bandmates think that playing a battle of the bands in Whitewater is going to make me more happy than going to see Low play here in Madison, and are laying the guilt on me. I wish I was in a band who had their priorities more in order. Wait a second, I am. Tomorrow: shopping. I am looking for new pants. Alissa needs another turtleneck. Whoopty whoop.

Hey I ended up missing the after party but our show seemed to please plenty of people© Everyone must have got hurt in our band except me© The only thing that really happened to me was my feelings were somewhat hurt because matt got all the attention with that "minor" eye thing of his© Thanx, once again, for stealing my stardom Matt© The Dpc might have a chance to play at the battle of the bands Feb 22© Talk to me about this guys© There is only one thing left for me to say, Craig and Ian's parents were there on Saturday¥lame¤©

Alissa had her 21rst birthday party last night, so of course I had to go and drink too much wine. Had a good conversation with Ben Edison about the possibilty of Eden existig on the top of the apartment. Luckily enough, we were able to restrain ourselves from climbing the rickety ladder and fiding out for ourselves. There was also a nice rambling conversation with Ron, captain of New Kentucky Quarter about recording here at the Doty Ranch in March. Right now former legitamate scientist is tearing it up recording bass parts downstairs. There's just something about those bands with 3 word names. I have "Wedding Day" by Rosie Thomas playing right now. It makes me go a big rubbery one. Also, we found a hypnosis tape today at Savers that will allow you to connect with your previous lifes. So far it has only made us very sleepy.

wow. i had such a good time last night. my body hurts so badly today that i fear i may have to soon retire from the band for health reasons. matt got caught in the ian whirlwind last night. sorry matt. ian got hurt by the ian whilwind as well. sorry ian. i don't think we have played better than we did last night. and in combination with star p, blast the edison, and mabel, the show was very good. i hope that everyone who paid their four dollars was satisfied. there will be show at electric earth coffee in the next month or two. and it will kick ass as much as the show last did. for sure.
From the crowd reports, the DPC show last night was one of our best performances. We hurt ourselves alot and took in much alcohol to nurse ourselves back to health. The post show party was supremely excellent as members of Mabel, Blast the Edison, Star P and the Catacombs stopped by. It was mindboggling how many cool people were in our living room and watching us dance around. I have a small feeling in the back of my head that I might have unintentionally amused many a person. In retrospect, we should have used the oppertunity to carry on the largest game of Plastic Constellations in the history of DPC> Whoopty woop!
Last night was great. We rocked the catacombs and i almost lost an eye. How? At the end of our set, I was on the ground screaming into my guitar and Ian came over next to me. He set his guitar down next to mine and ripped the strings off it. In the process, the headstock hit me in the face--millimeters from my eye. There was lots of blood, but I lived and I can still see with both eyes. It's the rock star lifestyle.
We came. We played. We left. We drank. It was friggin great. I slightly cut my finger. Nate cut his hand. Ian scraped his hand. Matt got hit in the head with a guitar. Marcus sang and looked pretty. Everything you'd want in a band. Shoulda been there, man.

Alright, follllllllks. Let's get something straight. You are going to see Driftless Pony Club on Saturday. Not Har mar Superstar. Not Tycho 1. Not your girlfriend. Driftless Pony Club. We got the cinderblocks. Catacombs, 8:oo pm. See ya there.
After a hard day of breaking and entering into my own house, despite the fact I had my keys, we went to the bars this evening. Consuming a nice Long Island Ice Tea, I was shocked to find myself being propositioned by a cute girl for a kiss. Feeling a little guilty but pleasently surprised by the power of my new haircut, I returned to the Doty Ranch for a good night's rest. Tomorrow we will be guested by the always fun presence of Ben from Rochester as we prepare to rock it on Saturday. Come to the show and proposition the drummer with the nice hair. Or any of the other members, they probably feel lonely now.

due to the fact of a problematic doorknob, a little window shimmy enabled ranchers to actually get in the house. what is the use of keys? honestly?

hey people out there I have been dead to the world because i am in a lame-ass show right now© The Strokes rocked on saturday night live and the show at the catacombs should rock if everyone else in the dpc¥besides me of course¤ doesn't show up © I am also drunk right now© Sorry about the grammatical errors©
The show at the Catacombs is coming up. Getting stoked. My mom's gonna be there. I hope I don't swear or bite of the heads of rats on stage, like I've been known to do in my early days on tour with Black Sabbath. Schools going great so far! (kill me)
Looks like no one posted yesterday. Lame.
Tonight, Former Legitimate Scientists is coming to record in our basement. On monday night, they came and put down some drum tracks. The drummer, Craig, has a double bass drum. I'm not a big fan of double bass drums. They seem pretty ridiculous. But, I have to admit, it was intense. Although I don't think Driftless Pony Club needs one.

Tomorrow's the big first day of school for the semester and I'm all set. Got my rum, got my soda, and uh, whatever else I need. See ya later. Gotta go find a glass.

and we did get to see the strokes. heh heh heh heh........
i was 'the man' last night. espn thing-a-ma-bob drinking place is full of video games. it's like being in alladin's castle! only, with beer! and the fishing game was intense. later that night, after borrowing a dollar from janel, i set the jukebox at o'leary's public house for some kick-in-the-face tunes. honky-tonk woman (best song ever), touch me (no one drinks like jim), and sex machine (movin', doin' it, you know?!!). here's a tip for visitors visiting chicago: bring money. and if you don't have very much, rob someone who does.
I went to Chicago with a hankering for some blues and some booze. I satisfied both desires by going to Blue Chicago. There was a great blues band playing but I don't know what they were called. The bar was dark, the tables were skinny, and the waitress was cute, but I was there for some good ol' blues. In the bathroom, the wall was covered with graffiti but one signature stood out. ED O'BRIEN! Now, I'm not sure if this was the same Ed O'brien that plays guitar for Radiohead, but I like to think that it is just so I can say I pissed in the same urinal as Ed O'brien. Sure beats watching SNL in Madison.
I ended up not going to Chicago and instead watched SNL with Craig featuring the Strokes and Jack Black. The best part was the leader singer clearly mouthing that he fucked up after "Hard To Explain." Jack Black seemed like the first host in years who was actually excited to see the band of his show. Sure beats drinking in Chicago, I hope.

Yesterday I went to bed healthy as a lark (or something) and woke up with my nose stuffed up to all hell. The rest of the house is going to Chicago and staying at a hotel for an all night drinking binge. Why is this different than drinking in Madison you ask? Because when you're drinking in Madison you don't get to say "I'm in Chicago," without seeming like another misunderstood homeless person. I'm working tonight. I'll be catering at the lovely Monona Terrace and sniffling.
I had too many cigerettes last night and feel like I will be bringing a lung up thru my nose soon. I am having doubts about my ability to stay awake tonight as we head to Chicago to celebrate Matt's birthday with many beverages. There are also new Weezer mixes at their site, with a possible album name of Maladroit. When did Rivers get all pretentious on us?

I am new to this new aged bull-dookie hi
Matt wears womens underwear
My entry for today is the exact same as Matt's, except replace my name with his.
Last night, craig and I went to La Crosse to scope out the music scene. Instead, we drank all night for four dollars. However, our good friend, Chad Mather, is going to deliver our demo to some of the venues for us. He's great. They love us in La Crosse!

This is the first post on a page that will hopefully show you the wild and wonderful world of the Driftless Pony Club. I got the new Mates of State cd today for free. Whoopty whoop!
