Oh, I think that's got great potential! Somehow the idea of mechanically generated lyrics goes quite well with a band that doesn't play real instruments. This could even work well in getting your foot (feet?) in the door for that posibily lucrative future market of music for machines kitchen items!

Although I quite like the organic element of this line:
"I am comforted by your business sock that I carry into the twilight."
"It was a hilarious, hilarious moment in a very bleak, bleak time of my life."

Happiness is Bret-Shaped.

Any truth to the rampant internet rumor that BE will be putting on a FREE CONCERT at the Chiswick roundabout sometime soon? :eh:

Yes there is and I believe there wardrobe will primarily consist of chainmail and anything else that would be good for photo shoots.

I wasn't going to go out today, but I think I'm going to have to scour the magazine racks to find a copy of that! That's a must-read!

This is the best thing ever. EVER. We are truly in the presence of greatness. And eyebrows.

The interviewer from Faux Bands Weekly was quite pleasant, I have to say. Even gave me a tissue when I started tearing up over my struggle with whole MT disease. :cry: It has been quite difficult. I just wanted to thank all of my fellow bband members for being so supportive during this tough time.

Regarding the lyrics, Ellen. I think you and your computer could be the next Lennon and McCartney, erm Lenin and McCarthy? :oops: Nevermind.

I really love these lines:
"Your skin glows like the banana..."
"I am comforted by your business sock that I carry into the twilight..."
"I wait for you in the moonlight so that we may yell as one, monkey to monkey,
in search of the magnificent and mystically ridiculous Russian doll of love. .."
They are so moving. The magnificent and mystically ridiculous Russian doll of love. :tears: Get just gets you, right here :heart:, ya know?

But, I would like to know, is that Faux Band Monthly $2.95 in US, UK, NZ, or CA? $2.95 in UK & US is a lot of money on our budget. NZ & CA wouldn't be so bad. I'd have to put off the binge eating. No more Images.

Andria, I just want to say I am so proud of you for sharing your story. So many people (and monkeys) out there who are dealing with MT will be inspired and hopefully lives will be changed. I think you need to write a song about it for the 8-track. You can disguise the fact that it’s about MT, you know, in a subtle way. I just don’t think all our songs should be about love.

I like the way you think, Ellen.

MT is a serious subject, to be sure, but hasn't FotC already written a song about it? Think About It; Think, Think About itcovered this subject. Don't want to flood the market with the subject and end up with MT fatigue, making people desensitized to the very problem we are attempting to bring awareness to.

I do think, however, it is entirely appropriate for our 8-track cover to depict Andria, longing to touch a near-by monkey, just beyond her reach. Perhaps a gauzy filter would be nice, like they use in the feminine hygene commercials, you know. Maybe we can get Annie Lebowitz for the shoot.

Um, have you seen our budget? We just can't afford Annie Lebowitz. I think we'll have to make do with Andy Lebowurtz. :wink:

Hmmm... an excellent point. Perhaps Uncle Morty and his polaroid are available. Will let you know.

Oh, and thanks Kate - though I haven't the faintest clue why you would be laughing. This is very, very serious. :rolleyes:
