The remaining pieces will all be burned onto individual discs and sold. The (approximately 1,134) discs will have to be played all at the exact same time for full effect. There will be a festival in the Sahara Desert where I will gather together 1,134 people so that the world may witness the glory of what I will dub "Hypsilophodon".

The only vocals on the album will be me imitating a Tibetan monk run through a vocoder, run through a tin can, run through an octave pedal, then run through another vocoder. The first 14 minutes of the album will be simply one guitar note delayed over and over.
Rest assured, I will buy 10 copies of each of the 1,134 discs and will make the pilgrimage to your Sahara extravaganza.

Sometimes, the fact that it makes no sense actually makes it great.

I'm constantly coming up with names of bands...from things I just see around me, or when people say things, it'll trigger something (probably to the great annoyance of those people). I think the last one was the "Frightened Squirrels," or something like that.

Phosphoric Acid

Reverse Osmosis

...sip, sip.

Doom Horse will have a lead bass player and a rhythm bass player. That's how bad-ass Doom Horse will be. Well, would be, you know, if I played an instrument and then formed a band. But whatever.

DOOM HORSE

Spinal Tap played on Letterman when the film was first released, and 3 of them were playing bass. When David St Hubbins introduces the band, he introduces one of them as playing "lead bass" and it cracks me up.

But Doom Horse does not crack me up, because bad-assery is not all that funny, not at first. Not until people's ear drums start to ooze liquid gold; then it's funny, but only funny because you're laughing with unmitigated joy. Then the weeping begins. Tears of joy. Golden tears.

That's the thing, Axver. We might play some Metal one night. A lot of metal. The next night, we might cover "Lost in Love" by Air Supply. The 3rd night, we might do a cover of LemonMelon's epic "Hypsilophodon". The 4th night, we might put on a puppet show, with the puppets all playing bass.

Anything could happen, but, you can always count on one thing: You can count on having your fucking mind blown.

o lustrous thoughtbeing, how your limitless soundscape notions reflect the nature of our interdimensional yearnings .. ! /


you are closer than most to understanding that which is crown

;



as for band names...I keep a running list on my macbook. In fast, A Running List is one of them.

Right now my band is either called Ironic Frogs or Blank. The South Korean singer suggested Ironic Frogs without a clear understanding of what "ironic" means, and I suggested Blank because then we could totally do a cover of Blank Generation by Richard Hell and the Voidoids. But that band is soon breaking up, so I'll need a new band name. Some of my top contenders are Bank,
Catch,
The Challenge,
The Unseen.
My more hip, indie side project can be something like
Chair Minus Desk,
Circle Y/N (pronounced Circle Yes No), The Misplaced Modifiers,
Oh, Your Gerands!,
Pocky Accident,
Social and Moral Relationships with Personified Robots,
Stairs Are Free!

Other possible band, album, or song titles include
The Hindsight Bias
The Imposters
I'm Alright Cigarette
problems that are solved by breaking a large force into parts that converge on a target
Running from Ghosts
Take It Or Leave It
We Are Creators
What Thoughts Happened

oh yeah, and my psedo-Rage band is going to be called Chainlink Aggression, and our album will be Agents of Destruction. Watch for it. Things we will or will not rage against may or may not include grapes, math, the government, corn syrup and its grip on the soda industry, Skybank, the man, oppressive South American dictators, vegetarians, hipsters, the letter z (outlawed in Iceland), the new iMovie, Dave Matthews Band, and fish tacos (or the lack of them).

Our rhythm bass player's brother is a lawyer; we'll be fine.

ETA - Plus, Sparklehorse exists, and please trust me that if Doom Horse had a rock-off with Sparkle Horse, well, Sparkle Horse would wind up being put out to pasture.

Oh, Your Gerunds! is way too cool [read: head too far up ass] to allow such noise to open for us. also, Oh, Your Gerunds! will never be popular enough for an opening band like Doom Horse.

however, Doom Horse should definitely open for Chainlink Aggression. The Unseen will open for Doom Horse on their tour. Deal?
