It has been my experience that if
it can go wrong it will. ESPECIALLY when trying to
make a professional CD, with labels and copies.
Amazingly with this project, it was balanced. Example,
making the CD the first time I had to go hand by
hand through all my DATs and burn them on to a disc,
and I got to the last song and ran out of space.
Got an 80 minute CD, added the full versions of 2
songs, and ended up making a 79 minute, 45 second CD.
It was DAMN close. I should've video taped that
last few minutes. I was peeing my pants. It had
taken me 4 hours up to that point. Having to balance
every song and listen to every section of each for
louder parts so as not to distort, and I hit 59
seconds left on that CD, and I was crying.
Somehow, with 15 seconds to go, it ended. How
incredible is that. So this defeats the 2 Late Show
CDs as the biggest CD on the planet. Not sure you can
The labels only
involved fighting with Kinko's for having
the audacity to charge me $70 for computer
time when I was fixing
THEIR problems. Either way, it looks
and sounds great, and I'm excited as HELL.
The best part is that I got the domain
Can you BELIEVE that wasn't TAKEN? So
I didn't have to make a huge booklet,
I can put all the lyrics,
backgrounds, and even the VIDEO on the
site. That's right the promotional
Wars Blew video.
LOL. I sure like going overboard.
Oh, and here's all the songs on
Hope you all recognize some of
your favorites. Amazingly I left 6 CD101 Parody Songs
off the CD, but I'll venture to say your favorites are
there. Oh and I was able to fit the full Boyles
Episode 58 within track #24 (kind of an introduction
for people for a future release), as well the full
version of Let it Go. As I listened to everything
in my car, I couldn't help but feel that I need
to be on a morning show. (sigh). I wonder quite often
if I'm just kidding myself and that I belong in radio.
I know many of you say yes, but you've always known me
there. Now that this CD is done, I may just be an
interview away from being back in radio. I don't know.
I cannot express how much I DONT want to get
stuck in radio, but sometimes when you follow your
heart, you don't always like the outcome. Who knows.
It would have to be a pretty nice deal. With the
freedom to continue other things. I really have a
vision of me never doing one thing for more than 2
years. I want to do so much.
GOD I AM SO ENVIOUS OF THOSE WHO HAVE
ONE DREAM. Like the millions of actors in this
city who go to audition after audition. They have a
path. Or musicians...they have a path. But what the
hell is my path? I have NO CLUE where to go.
I can't even get an agent. For crying out loud.
Damnit. I'll move on now.
Anyway, I had a show last
November 30th, 2000 - 8:30-11:00
MOOSE IS BACK!!!!
MOOSE IS BACK!!! It was so
strange driving to the show with MOOSE.
And it's awesome we're all back in the
fight again. The set-up went smooth,
except I had to rip open Avery (the
computer that runs the show)...and
I do mean rip. I didn't have my
screw driver, and I literally
RIPPED the wood apart to fix
something. We were runnin close on time. I
made a great discofvery about digital
signals running through avery. They don't
like it. The DVD idea may not work.
I ran my digital camera through the
splitter for my Star Wars Blew
advertisement, and it freaked. Digital
artifacts all over the place. I can only
assume a DVD player would do the same
thing. So I may just have to stay
with tape after all. Anyway, set-up was a
was really good. I was somehow able
to remember all my lines from the Magic
Set. People laughed their asses off at the
beginning of the Magic Set. It ends with a
song, and I think that was a bad
move, because people want more of the
same....I sould've just left it with one
last trick. Maybe I'll try and edit
was nice. Sold 3 CDs and got
about $15 in tips. One guy
went to a local college, and
is gonna give them the CD and
try to get me a gig. How cool
is that? Hopefully he gives me
a number so that I can call
them and set-up a meeting.
I can hand them my promo
pack. That'd be cool. College
kids gotta dig my shit. Again,
reaction was great, and I was
really surprised at how much
people liked the smart ass TV
in the Magic set. It's kind of
like the little
for the journey section in
October. Fuckin' Copperfield -
So it was a great
night, the CD is out, and I'm not gonna promise
to make the boxes for those damn TVS this month. But,
I'm pretty sure they'll be done. LOL.
By the way, Star Wars Blew is a
double CD, but I'm only chargin' $10. As is the price
for every CD I have. $5 for tapes, $10 for CDs.
Unreal, Tomorrow, and Boyles Vol. 1 are
NOT available. Oh and by the way, Palaur is
getting a reworking. I'm gonna have everything on a
CD-ROM, and make the site free. So to those of you who
already bought it, you're getting a free disc. I still
haven't been paid from Verotel for the some $80 in
credit card sales I had. Bastards. So I'm telling them
to screw off and making it free, then offering the
CD-ROM at the end. I also found out that my
address and phone number is available to everyone on
the planet because of my websites. LOL. So I guess
giving it to you for CD sales isn't really such a big
deal. So if you'd like the disc, please send $12

Sherman Oaks, CA.
I've got a stack here
waiting to be sent. I truly hope ya want
On the personal front, Jess is
kicking butt at her job. Her hours are tough, but
she's enjoying it. It's a lot easier to work those
hours when you're a manager. At least you have a
purpose for being there so long. Nothing worse than
long BORING hours. I miss her tremendously
though. It does make her days off nice though. My life
has been strange. I've been dreaming about my
grandmother consistently every night. I really don't
want to deal with it. I guess my sub-conscience is
forcing me to. When does it end? The worst part is
I don't want it to. I hate to think that in
the future I'll remember her as someone who was only
around a small part of my life. Like her being around
was a LOOOONG time ago. Not sure if
I mentioned it before, but she and my mom
basically raise my me and my uncle. My uncle and I are
only 3 years apart. She was just such an enormous part
of my life, and I being so far away makes it
really difficult to comprehend that she's not in
Columbus with the rest of my family. Oh well, so
that's my life. Very uplifting. Thanks
Anyway, Star Wars Blew is out.
It's DAMN funny. And it'll make you laugh. By the
way, it is NOT - and I repeat -
IT IS NOT for kids. In fact Bearded Smile is
so bad, I cringe when I hear it. It's about
an obsessive female masturbater. Man. What the hell
was I thinking. So again, this is not a good
Christmas present for the kiddies. Or for your mom.
Rest assured though, Bearded Smile is the worst.
And good GOD - It's December.
Amazing. What a crazy year.
