Hey! you!

If you couldn't tell, i've been super-busy with the podcast. HERE.

I've got it to the point where I can mix in music for some constant chatter accompaniment.
It's like ridiculous how good i've gotten with GarageBand. 

Also, today I discovered that a Y chromosome may in fact be required to enjoy At The Drive-In. Sucks. I was totally going to use them on a date. Intensity!!!

So, for now you ought to go check out the pod, and I will attempt to refocus my musical wit on this stuff. 

For instance, Passman & I invented a game where we construct a band based on five parts (to fit our usual top 5 format). The picks go as follows:

First, pick a Drummer
Second, pick a Bassist
Third, pick a Guitarist
Fourth, pick a Vocalist
and lastly, your Wild Card
Then select a band name and a song performed by a different band (separate from the bands of your members).
Also, some rules. Only one member may be dead, and no two members may have been in the same original band. Also, you must pick them based on their main instrument, not on instruments they're able to play. So, for example, my band looks like this:

The Paranoia Thomson
Drums: Stewart Copeland, The Police
Bass: Les Claypool, Primus
Guitar: Tony Iommi, Black Sabbath
Vocals: Iggy Pop, The Stooges
Wild Card: Marc Bolan, T. Rex
...and they would perform "Peaches" by The Stranglers

See. One dead guy (Bolan) and no two members in the same project. Technically Les Claypool and Stewart Copeland were in Oysterhead, but that was a one-album project. 
Also, if you're REEALLY bored, here's Passman's band:

Pit Viper
Drums: Jimmy Chamberlin, Smashing Pumpkins
Bass: Peter HookNew Order
Guitar: Stephen CarpenterDeftones
Vocals: Robert SmithThe Cure
Wild Card: Frédéric Chopin
...and they would perform "Achilles' Last Stand" by Led Zeppelin

Feel free to create your own and be sure to subscribe to the podcast through iTunes so that I don't have to fucking tell you every time something gets posted. My GarageBand skills can only grow at this point so it should be some Crazy Goodshit (born: Craztopher John Goodshit) in the future.
