2005.01.26 301:

i've finally broken 300 posts (this is the three-hundred-and-first) on bipolar, which is pretty sad, considering we've been doing this almost five full years. brian over there's killing me in the post-count department, despite my recent spate of activity and his recent absence.

which reminds me, brian's been at home ill quite a bit recently, so everybody .

which also leads me to another point. i managed to steal a few hours yesterday and today "cleaning up" the x13design family of websites to eliminate bare email addresses on all the pages. i've realized i'm getting a fuckload of spam mail, and it's probably all because i've had my address right out there for the spambots to collect at their leisure for years. i found a cool little tool online that encrypts the email address and generates javascript code to display the email link. so now, just about every instance of our various email addys has been cleaned up and obfuscated, so hopefully the torrent of spam will subside a bit. it's a vain hope, i know, but every little bit helps, i guess.

the other band wrapped up recording tonight, so next sunday we'll get seriously started on the mixing process. hopefully, we'll also get a few steps closer to picking a band name. rob actually provided a hefty list tonight, and we all picked five of our favorites from his list. here's the result of that:
3 threadbare taken
3 mammon (? possibly taken, found tabs online, a ref in bandreg.com, and a record label)
2 permafrost (dubliners, some reference to an indie band from '97/'98, and a record label)
2 psychosomatic (3 refs, all dead, maybe dead, 2 on bandreg)
2 nexus (here, here, here, here, & about 20 on bandreg)
2 housing project
2 trite (yup.)
2 kitsch (here, here, & about six on bandreg)
1 homogenize
1 midwife

brax and jim have both promised to provide their own lists on sunday, so i'll probably have some more for you then. after we vote on theirs, we'll repeat the process a few times, 'til we finally figure out what to call ourselves.

Threadbare was an old emo/hardcore band in the mid-90's. Permafrost sounds incredibly black metal. I like it.

For future reference, I have a new side project named The New Black.

i thought i'd heard of threadbare. I also thought it sounded incredibly emo. It all adds up.

I also like Permafrost.

Personally, I've got a few songs and I'm considering going solo or getting another guitarist with me, an acoustic act mostly. I've been toying with the name Pikeville 47, yes I realize it has a number in it, but that's ok becuase everybody is a poser anyway and there's actually a story behind this name.

How about "The Indecisive", "Irresolute" or "Undetermined"? Maybe "Fickle"?

how about "The Save Enterprise"? except really. If you're not into startrek, it sounds quite cool actually. but you are so whatever.

my vote is definately for housing project since permafrost is out. Permafrost sounded too hardcore anyway.
