You know my Incredibly Strange Music group on Audiogalaxy? I had to remove (expel) a member just now for the first time. And it’s a shame because he was one of the original members when I first started the group in December. Well, he was a pain in the ass then and he’s been a pain in the ass all along, despite repeated warnings and threats to eject him. His infractions were almost too numerous to mention: he would flood the message board with egocentric posts. He would insult me on the message board and insult anyone who also felt he was being a pain. Worst of all he kept sending crappy commercial music. Not 100% bad shit, maybe 66% was questionable and 33% was good. That’s why it sucks that it had to come to this, because I will miss the 33% good shit he posted. What an idiot.
Ryan Hembrey’s back from his month-long European tour with Manishevitz. Him and Adam Vida are coming over on Monday for a band meeting, to discuss how we’re going to work out the money arrangements and everything for the tour. Come to think of it I guess I should ask Jim if he wants to come too! Don’t want to exclude the only other Chicago bandmember.
My band: Jim Becker (guitar, violin, keyboards), Amy Domingues (cello, keyboards), Ryan Hembrey (electric bass, backing vocals), Adam Vida (drums)
