What A Summer.

So, the sweltering Arizona Summer is finally coming to an end. It's been a rough one for me personally. The Album stressed me out a bit. My TV blew up. My refrigerator died. Found out I need glasses. I fried the Bogner. The economy has slowed business down some and even though George Bush's IRS sent me a notice saying I would get this economic "remember me as a good President" stimulus check, I finally found out I wasn't getting one etc. etc. Outdoor photo shoots in 120 degree heat staring into the sun as well as playing shows in un-air conditioned venues never helps either. But, Landmine is the thing that keeps me going in life. A new tour is looming and the album will be out in bout two months. These things make me smile after a bad day at work. I also married the girl I love this summer and that rocks as well.
We played a cool show with Dead Child last week, and despite the fact that not many showed up/stayed for us we still tried to make the best of it and have an awesome time. We actually performed really well despite the sweltering heat and the venue being a total echo chamber. We got some interesting news that we may announce eventually too that has got us all excited, but we'll see how things roll! So, keep your eyes on the Landmine camp for the new record and plenty of new news. Looking forward to the Graf Orlock show September 7th as well and bummed I'll be missing the Testament, Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, and Motorhead show next week as well as Radiohead in LA due to going to my Brother In Laws wedding next week. It will be a nice break from Phoenix, though, and Mike and I are gonna go see Carcass in L.A. next month!
