It’s Not Easy Being Green
I’m only gonna say this once. For the benefit of those who really love coming to this site. I have noticed more often than not, that people take EVERYTHING I say as serious as a heart attack. Again, I am only going to say this once. From now on when I spout my usual venomous nonsense, I will do it in green text.

I would like to thank Anterockstar and BE Communications for the excellent effort they made on bringing my show with Wednesday 13 (aka Marilyn Zombie) a memorable one. Ultimately the result was a pile of shit. No fault of theirs. They did an excellent job capturing the magic visually. Alas, the sound quality was utter shit, much like most live videos. Despite what the video tells you, everything sounding great at the venue, but again, live video more often than not falls flat. I am however, extremely impressed with the visual aesthetics. Hire these people to shoot show live. You won’t regret it.
It’s also no fault of the sound that I was extremely pitchy for my first two songs. There were 200 people there and I found myself a little more nervous than usual. I didn’t prepare a setlist. All those songs were chosen off the cuff. I also made a glaring mistake during Voices. Anyway, here it is:
