As I sit here typing, I'm listening to cemetery gates by Pantera. It's hard to believe a year has passed since this guy was murdered. The words of this song fit like a glove to the circumstances that took Dime...Almost like a self fulfilling prophesy. RIP DIME......

We practiced for 2.5 hrs last night and had great fun. I'm a bit tired and sore this morning. I beat the shit out of my kit last night. I was a bit concerned that I might crack one of my new cymbals because I was playing so hard. But it was such a blast. Of course I wasn't wearing ear plugs so my ears rang till about 3 this morning. We've also lost 2 guys. We've exiled one guitar player, and the bass player is also gone as of last night. He's on his way to Iraq. The other guitarist (Jeff) and I seem to be the only ones who were interested in doing the more heavier stuff anyway.

I gotta tell you guys about the day I had at the music store had yesterday. I sold $4,300 worth of merchandise in about 7hrs. It was absolutely nuts. I would be helping one customer and have two others waiting on me. Every employee had the same situation. The whole month has been stellar for our store. I hope the man upstairs will allow continued good fortune for our industry. Drum sets and home recording studios seem to be the hot items.

Well I gotta get off my lazy butt and do some yard work. I live on a cul de sac where everyone keeps their lawn immaculate. Mine is kind of an eyesore.
Out for now...
