4 Degrees from Beto. I like that! I'm totally running with that. Ha!
I totally dig the anonymity thing. That's cool though. If you ever feel like sharing I'd love to hear some stuff. The band I was talking about had 3 guitars most of the time too and I always loved the flexibility and possibilities of it. We weren't any good at the self promotion of it either. A couple of us tried a bit, but none of us had the knack for it.
Sorry for the bizarre shorthand, the S:O/MEC thing was Songs: Ohia/Magnolia Electric Company. My wife has given me endearing nudges that sometimes my mental shorthand is not nearly as clear as I think it is, which also leads to the second part where "almost got to the state finals" thing was a reference to my sort of self indulgent reminiscing. More or less, I got self conscious about having perhaps piggybacked on your band story which was totally awesome and completely germane to the conversation and forced in a boring, self indulgent dialog about mine. Now, explaining it I kind of wish I could have that line back, but that's my process. In essence, "the Mars Volta stole our singer" is my version of Al Bundy's "I once scored 4 touchdowns..." The more I "spin out" on the topic, I fear my true face of a crazy neurotic, self hating ego monster in recovery is showing.
All that said, I did once bowl a 289 at the state tournament when I was 15 or 16. First 10 strikes and the 11th which left a stone 8 pin might have been the best shot I threw in the game.
