Huh. How 'bout that.

I just realized that I've been writing this blog since August 2004, and this November was the first month that I haven't posted anything.

That was a pretty good streak I had going there, and I didn't even realize. For shame, Alice. For shame.


The Internet: "What? You haven't posted anything in MONTHS, and you're posting a freaking meme?"

Alice: "Suck it, Internet. You're not the boss of me!"

From Your Dirty Answer:

1. Go to the Wikipedia home page and click Random Article (on the side menu). That is your band's name.
2. Click random article again; that is your album name.
3. Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.

BAND NAME: Ravensthorpe, Dewsbury (That is actually an awesome band name)

ALBUM NAME: Meadow Well Metro Station (And an AWESOME album name! My band rocks)

  1. Wolf Spider (it's so dark where we are right now)
  2. In These Veins (this is our tribute to the 4th album by Swedish extreme metal band Hearse)
  3. Lady Of The Night (and this is our tribute to the Donna Summer album. We are a band of contrasts.)
  4. Jiří Malec (this is a lyrical song that tells the story of the famed Czechoslovak ski jumper who won a bronze medal in the 1980 Olympics)
  5. Kōge, Fukuoka (this is a peppy number about getting lost in the Japanese town of Kōge)
  6. Sander Westerveld (this is the song our bass player wrote about her crush on the Dutch footballer.)
  7. York Regional Road 25 (also known as Major Mackenzie Drive, this is a loving tribute to the much maligned York Region, north of Toronto)
  8. History of Malmö (this is an instrumental number, featuring a 7 minute keyboard solo)
  9. Silver Star (this is a song about travelling from New York to Miami on train, with guest vocals by Gloria Estefan)
  10. Jay Ovittore (this is a scathing look at American politics)
  11. Virtual High Throughput Screening (we're pretty sure we were drunk when we wrote this. We barely can understand it ourselves)
  12. Earth and Water (this one's pretty sanctimonious - it's about saving the environment and we can get pretty preachy when we set our minds to it)
  13. Korea Aerospace Industries KFX (the radio stations won't play this - it's too shocking)
  14. Nitrobike (this was our first single. It was huge in Germany)
  15. Alive in an Ultra World (this is an extended cover of all the songs on Steve Vai's album in one, uninterrupted stream. It's 70 minutes long.)
We're doing a world tour in 2008. Tickets go on sale in January. Hope to see you then!
