I saw the full-length theatrical trailer for this on HDNET last night. Up until then, I had never heard of it. Apparently, it's a Korean monster flick. Usually, I like my monster movies with a liberal dose of zombies, but in this case I'll make an exception. Anyone here see it yet? The American trailer (which is available on Apple.com) plays up the funny aspects of the film. The one above is the UK trailer.
In other news, I'm working full steam ahead on the new Micronaut album(s). There will actually be several different vocalists on this iteration of Micronaut, for some new flavor. Who knew the Pacific Northwest had rappers? Go figure.
And finally, I now have a full install of the Business version of Vista. I'll put it in as soon as the company that makes my audio card releases 64-bit drivers. This should be entertaining.
Also, come to find out, I've developed astigmatism. So my contact lens prescription changed to these little eyeball-sucking leech things. Pop.
But my new glasses look very nice. There's that. And I got prescription Ray-Bans for my sporting lifestyle. I'm fucking set now. At least until I go blind.
I wonder how that technology has progressed.
In other news, I'm taking my cousin Michael snowboarding tomorrow. Well, he's one of those luddites that skies, but same fucking mountain, right? Trying to decide between Timberline and Bachelor. I guess I'll have a look at the weather tomorrow and make up my mind then.
In any case, it's not so terrible, and we're getting along. Just before Christmas I ordered my mother a cell phone attached to my account. Inexplicably, Sprint sent us _two_ phones, and started billing me for two. This didn't make me happy, but I thought "no harm, no foul. I'll go to the handy Sprint Store and get it sorted out." I won't go in to vivid detail, but after three visits to the store and at least five half-hour phone calls to India, I still have this fucking phone. Normally, I'm pretty polite with customer service people, but I swear to christ...
Anyways, my question is thus: can someone make a positive correlation between the quality of customer service in this country and the general decline of the American Empire? The way the Romans knew their empire was collapsing is when the mail stopped. Is this our version?
Some house cleaning first and foremost: if you're coming here from the SMG.org/.com site, you no doubt understand that Sister Machine Gun no longer exists. I have moved on a new artistic path, one that offers me greater freedom of expression. It should be apparent to everyone that was a fan of SMG since the beginning that I've been pushing at the genre-imposed boundries of industrial music for the last several years. I finally came to my senses (unlike many of my peers, I'm sorry to say) and admitted that Wax Trax no longer exists, and big chunky guitars over drum machine beats maybe isn't that cool any more.
So, out with the old, in with the new. Again, for people familiar with posiNET in general, this site operates more or less like all the others. We have utilized more features of posiNET in this site than is usual; you can add an avatar to your user page, and this will show up in the private messages and your newsgroup posts. This is the main thing you'll notice that is different than SMG.org/.com. I don't need to tell you not to be a complete retard about the picture you add, so I won't. But don't.
Sistermachinegun.com will remain in place, of course, for historical purposes. We're not going to stop selling SMG records in shopPOSI or anything. I'm not one of those types that will try to run and hide from my past, and there is a lot in the (admittedly vast) SMG catalog that I'm unreasonably proud of.
This site is a bit thin in the content department right now, I suppose it's worth noting. We'll be adding more as things progress. The album is available for streaming on LastFM, as is the attendent E.P. If you're a LastFM user, please listen and tag appropriately. As is usual with our releases of late, as soon as we approve the CD production, you'll be able to pre-order the album in shopPOSI, and you'll get the digital download immediately, whether or not you buy the CD. The EP is digital only.
And finally, a special thank-you to long-time fans who have put up with my creative hikinks and missteps for going on two decades now. We're all getting older, and hopefully wiser, and here's where things change for the better.
