    Well it's been over a month, and I have some new shit to show off. I guess we'll start with the most important first: My new car! Finally sold ye olde Silverado (which really wasn't that old), and decided to buy a brand that has been calling my name since before I was driving. Took the money from my truck and put some of it down on this sumbitch right here!

    It's a 2003 VW Jetta 1.8T. Got it for a cool $5,500. Runs like a champ, although I do have to replace the downpipe after blowing the stock flex pipe to bits. It sounds like a damn monster truck at the moment. :lol: I'm pretty excited about it.

    Number B:
    Not really a huge deal for anyone else, but I finally got an interface! It's a PreSonus AudioBox USB. Snagged it off of a friend for a really good price.

    Letter 3:
    A piece of shit 7321 that my vocalist (for the band you'll hear about next!) trashed and gave to me because I didn't feel like buying another, and I want to fix it up really nicely. It was covered in stain, that was applied over the wood sealer. It also had some pretty considerably-sized gouges in the wood, which have since been nearly remedied.

    I believe I'm going to be an automotive-grade white respray on it. I was going to try for something really close to Barolo, but I decided to go with white...because I like white. Shall be receiving a CL/LF set as well.

    Part 5:
    I'm moving into my new townhouse tomorrow. My girlfriend and I officially have our own place now. My current apartment is literally overflowing with boxes of our crap, but the new place is bigger and much cooler.


    What number was this....?:
    Lastly, I've joined a new band. I know a couple people on here have heard of them, and I know at least one member on here did a tour with them in his own band.

    Yeah, the name is dumb, but I didn't choose it. We're also just using the anagram of it as our new name anyways. We're going a COMPLETELY different direction with the new material, as we've basically gotten back together with 3 new members after the band went on an undetermined hiatus. There should be a big announcement by the weekend on our Facebook, so hop over and give us a like and check it out.


    I've missed some of you... :wub:

    Welocome back man. Nice track! What is the name of the band? Couldn't read it and I'm on my iPhone so I don't get any of the YouTube info in the video.

    I'm hooked on mine. It actually kind of sucks, because I need new gear, but I want to buy new parts for it. :lol:

    As for the band name, it's Did You Mean Australia?, which will be changed to just Dyma.

    Welcome back! :welcome:

    I actually kind of like the name Did You Mean Australia? Not something I would use, but it has a cool kind of silly to it.
