Tapping the predictive text button – or – a good day for the next few weeks

Weeks later this month in a while ago but the fact I can get it right away with the best of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be the first half of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be the first half of the year and the first half of the year and the other hand is the only thing that would have to go back and the other hand is the only thing that would have to go back and the first half of the day I have a great way of life and I don’t think that I can see it as an excuse for the next few weeks of a sudden it was the best of the year of high quality of life and the first half of the day I have a great way of the year of high quality of life is the only one that is a good time with the first half of the year of high quality and I don’t think that I have a good time with the first half of the day before the end of the day before the end of the year and a great…

In other news… here’s a “finger drawing” I’ve been working on.

  

Coats & Corpses

As some of you may or may not know… I’ve maintained a “record label” website and tried to consistently work on random musical projects. So, I had a project over the past couple days where I was working on called The Nuns of Yore. While working on that, I decided that it was also time to go back and redo the way I have the current Coats & Corpses website to have some more up to date releases… like the Pucker Up… EXPLODE! albums I’ve been releasing.

All this being said… I haven’t really posted anything online that I’ve been working on since the last PUE album (other than the 2 New Years songs) So, today I submit to you… a demo compilation that I made for myself in December to keep my head in the game. See what I like and what I’d like to change… either way, this is the first taste of Thirty-Three. The following 9 tracks are not complete… a lot of them just sort of end, some of them may never make it past this “release”, others may go onto other projects (track 8 is being used in The Nuns of Yore) …and this is actually the second demo I’ve put together for Thirty-Three… maybe one day I’ll post the first one if anyone else is into my musical evolution. Probably not though…

The Nuns of Yore… Update

So… seeing as how it’s almost 2 o’clock on day one of the Nuns of Yore metal project… it seems fitting to give a bit of an update. My original plan was to do 2 tracks… but after conversing with some friends at work about it, and as the project began to progress, I realised that my theme may warrant a couple more tracks. As of now, I have the intro track, Straight Outta Convents, finished and ready for mixing. The second song (currently titled Psalm 187) is also progressing rather well, but as for heavy metal soloing… yeah, I’m pretty terrible. So, I’m going to have to do some “know your weakness” type of rearranging so that the track still works. Vocals are still scat (or scratch tracks as we always liked to call it).

Which brings us to track 3, Rule of the Spear, the most complete of the new songs. It’s actually about a true event… still being argued in court, where a priest allegedly killed a nun 23 years ago. The title comes from the first name of the priest, Gerald, which originates in the German language… meaning rule of the spear. That being said, I think it’s a good time to mention the theme of the album. I’m using priests and nuns as rival gangs… imagine that craziness. Drive by’s on churches performed by holy figures… people are people, you never know when crazy can erupt.

For track 4 I’m thinking of bringing in the classic Flowers for the Woman Who Got Hit On… By a Vehicle… seeing as how it never fit on a PUE, or KTPD album. I think I may rename it though… not sure… I really like that title. Oh, and yes, it will remain instrumental. It might, however, contain different samples and become longer. Then there is track 5… as of yet is untitled. It’s got a great soaring riff though.

I also redesigned the logo… check-ch-check-check check-ch-check it out…

Remember When Life Was Eazy?

Here’s a random sneak peak at on of the latest sketches for the Thirty-Three album cover. Note that a lot of the imagery involves fire, knives, and… pretty much everything else that normally finds it’s way into my artwork. Either way…

I’m done drawing for the night, but here’s the first intro sketch…

…and the first rough.
