Well I faced up to my fears and gave up my secrets of Seattle. I still don't like talking about it. (Trust me, it wasn't my finest hour.) But I do feel better about letting it out. I never was one good at keeping a secret.
Finished moving into our new digs over here on the east coast. It's like 4 degrees cooler here than Orlando thanks to that ocean breeze. (Curiously the number of stores where you can buy a tacky T-shirt that says 'Florida' is the same here as in Orlando) Jason got me a new doormat as a house warming present. Whadda think?
VIVA LA HATE BOMBS!
Earlier this week some hip cat friends of mine who happened to be in a local band named the Hate Bombs dropped over to see the new digs and gave me a totally unexpected surprise. They recorded a song about me! That's right, boys and girls, you heard it here first. Just click on the handy dandy link below and you can be the first on your block to hear "Love Theme from Freakylinks".

Ultra nifty keen-o huh? The Hate Bombs are soon to start a tour up the East Coast and if you get half a chance you should definitely check 'em out. They got a rockin' garage beat that's sure to make you move your feet. (That's the DJ coming out at me) For more info on the greatest band in Orlando check out their web page I've already decided that if I ever get married The Hate Bombs are the band I'm going to have play at my reception. (Just don't tell my mother, OK?) That crazy theremin sound you hear on the song (and also heard on my opening page) is courtesy of Aaron Jarvis of the "Delusionaires" which is another kickin' fun time sleaze band outta Orlando. You gotta dig a guy who plays an instrument with his own aura.
FREE STUFF ALERT
The Hate Bombs were kind enough to slip me two copies of their newest CD "Hunt You Down" and I thought I'd pass the savings on to you. Want some free music? Just be one of the first 2 people to e-mail me the correct TITLES of all the Freakopedia entries the Hate Bombs sing about in the song.
OK, off you go to listen to that song... I'm going to the beach. Maybe a hurricane will get close enough for some decent surf.....
