NYPD: Homeless Baby Drowns In Mom's Vomit
Police: Infant Rolled Off Bed In Homeless Shelter, Fell In Bucket

POSTED: 6:47 pm EDT September 22, 2006
UPDATED: 6:54 pm EDT September 22, 2006

NEW YORK -- A baby died after rolling off a bed and falling into a bucket of her teenage mother's vomit at a homeless shelter, police said.

The mother, Savarin DeJesus, 18, was charged with criminally negligent homicide and endangering the welfare of a child, and could get five years behind bars.

The young woman trembled and wept as she faced a judge Friday. "I loved my baby. I want you to know that," she said.

Authorities said DeJesus spent the evening of Sept. 15 downing gin and smoking cigarettes and then returned before dawn to the shelter where she lived with the 4-month old girl, Niah. DeJesus threw up into a bucket of cleaning solution next to her bed, then passed out on the bed, clutching Niah's legs, authorities said.

When she awoke about 10 hours later, she found the baby with her head in the bucket, which contained about six inches of liquid, according to court papers.

The cause of death was either asphyxiation or drowning, the medical examiner's office said.

DeJesus "loved her baby and would never hurt her," said her lawyer, Kenneth Gilbert.

The city's Department of Homeless Services said it was trying to determine if the East Harlem shelter had a crib.

Yep [25 Sep 2006|04:57am]
Three whole months without a post. It's hard to remember the time I actually CARED about this foolish thing.

Anyway, I'm still in this faggoty state of Metalchusetts, but hopefully not for long. I'm bidding on a house tomorrow and, if all goes well, I'll get out of here before the snow comes.

I bought about a dozen new guitars and half a dozen amps since the last post. Also finished up half the Scum Bitch album and the Skulleton album will be started very soon as well. I have enough for a Decrepitaph full length too, but that probably won't be until early 2007 I'm guessing. I just have too much crap to do.

I might try to post a bit more often, but don't count on it faggot. Anyone still read this? Anything new in LJ world?

This is a great read when you have the time. I've never seen the quest against faggot front wheel drive "performance" cars put so well.

Why Front-Wheel Drive Sucks
And why rear-wheel drive is coming back.
By Mickey Kaus
Updated Friday, April 11, 2003, at 7:06 AM ET

Friday, April 11, 2003

Car/sex metaphors are unavoidable, so let's get right to today's: Front-wheel drive cars are like bad sex. Rear-wheel drive cars are like good sex.

Let me explain!

Sometime in the early 1980s, I asked my friend Paul why he drove a crass Chevy Camaro. He said he liked the "balance" of a rear-wheel drive car. I nodded but secretly sneered at him. Everyone knew that front-wheel drive cars were the efficient, sophisticated wave of the future. Audis were front-wheel drive. Saabs were front-drive. GM, Ford, and Chrysler were about to embark on a massive shift to front-drive, resulting in the current Detroit product lineup, in which even the venerable Caddy DeVille is a front-drive car.

The advantages of front-wheel drive (FWD) seem self evident: By avoiding the need for a driveshaft connecting the engine in front with the rear wheels, front-drive cars save space. The entire drivetrain can be packed into a neat compartment in the front, leaving the rest of the car's volume for passengers and cargo. Plus, front-drive cars have better traction in slippery conditions (in part because the weight of the engine is on top of the wheels that are providing the power).

I should have realized the grim truth decades ago when I borrowed a friend's Audi 100 –- the first front-drive car I'd ever driven -- and took it out on Sunset Boulevard. In one of the curves leaving Beverly Hills, near the pink house that used to be owned by Jayne Mansfield, I mashed the throttle, expecting the satisfying "lock in" effect I got in my old rear-drive Volvo – the nose turning in, the car seeming to stop slipping, tightening its grip on the road even as it went around the corner faster. But that's not what happened. What happened is the front tires went all gooey and the car started to head for the living room of a nearby mansion. Only panicked braking calmed things down.

Naturally, my brain did what the human brain tends to do with a bit of aberrant data: I ignored it. All during the '80s and '90s the car magazines assured me, seemingly continually, that in sophisticated front-drive designs you couldn't even tell which set of tires was providing the power. Weren't front-drive Hondas the hippest cars around? Wasn't even Volvo switching, belatedly, to front drive? I also blamed the victim! I must just be a lousy or unsophisticated driver, I figured.

Then, a bit over a year ago, I conducted an abortive test drive of five convertibles. The idea was to sample cars that had at least a semblance of a rear seat. The entrants were Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, VW Cabriolet, Chrysler Sebring, and Toyota Solara. And that was the order of finishing (though the test was interrupted by 9/11 before I could drive a final production version of the Toyota). None of the cars was very good – you give up a lot in chassis stability when you chop off the roof, I discovered. But the old, junky, rear-drive Ford and Chevy pony cars were by far the most enjoyable – they rattled and guzzled, but at least they were a blast to drive around corners. The other three cars, all front-drive, were simply pleasant forms of transportation.

Why are rear-drive cars more fun? Every enthusiast may know the answer, but I didn't. So I called up a helpful GM suspension expert, Vehicle Chief Engineer Ed Zellner. There are, I learned, five basic reasons:

1) "Balance": The car rides on four patches of rubber, each about as big as your hand. An ideal car would distribute its weight evenly, so each tire had to bear the same load, and none would give way earlier than all the others. The ideal weight distribution, then, would be split about 50/50 between front and rear (actually, 48/52 to help with forward pitch during braking). "A rear-drive car can typically approach that," says Zellner. Engineers can move the front wheels forward, so that the engine – which doesn't have to be connected to those wheels -- sits behind the front axle. Meanwhile, the driveshaft and rear differential (necessary to send power to the rear tires) add weight in the rear. Front-drive cars, which must connect the engine and transmission to the front axle, typically have their engines mounted way forward and can't do much better than a 60/40 front/rear weight distribution.

2) Center of Gravity: This is the point the car wants to "rotate around" in a turn. On a rear-drive car, it's "about where the driver sits," says Zellner. In a turn, in other words, the car seems to be rotating around you – you're at the center. It's a natural pleasant effect, suggesting you're in control, the way you're in control when you're walking or running around a corner and your weight is centered inside you. (Analogy No. 2: It's like wearing stereo headphones and having the sound centered between your ears!) A front-drive car, in contrast, with its massive front weight bias, wants to rotate around a point in front of the driver. So in a corner, the driver isn't just rotating around his spine. He's moving sideways, as if he were a tether ball on the end of a rope, or Linus being dragged when Snoopy gets hold of his blanket. Not such a pleasant feeling, or a feeling that gives you a sense of natural control.

3) "Torque Steer": One of the most annoying habits of many powerful front-drive cars is that they don't go straight when you step on the accelerator! Instead, they pull to one side, requiring you to steer in the other direction to compensate, like on a damn boat. This "torque steer" usually happens because the drive shafts that connect the engine to the front wheels aren't the same length. Under power, the shafts wind up like springs. The longer shaft -- typically on the right -- winds up a bit more, while the shorter left shaft winds up less and transmits its power to the ground more quickly, which has the effect of pulling the car to the left. (This winding-up phenomenon occurs the moment you step on the pedal. After that, the wind-up relaxes, but "torque steer" can still be produced by the angles of the joints in the drive axles as the whole drivetrain twists on its rubber mounts.)

Veer madness?

Engineers try various strategies to control this veering tendency, but even designing shafts of equal length (as in all Cadillacs) doesn't completely solve the problem because the engine still twists a bit in its mounts and alters the angles of the drive shafts. True, some manufacturers -- Audi, for example -- are said to do a particularly good job of repressing torque steer . But even a top-rank company such as Nissan has problems -- its otherwise appealing new front-drive Maxima is said to be plagued by big-time, uninhibited torque steer. Rear-drive cars, meanwhile, don't really have a torque-steer problem that needs repressing. Their power goes to the rear through one driveshaft to a center differential that can a) have equal-length shafts coming out from it and b) be more firmly mounted.

4) Weight Shift: Suppose you just want to go in a straight line. What's the best way to get traction? Answer: Have as much weight over the driving wheels as possible. Front-drive cars start with an advantage -- but when any car accelerates, the front end tips up, and the rear end squats down. This transfers weight to the rear wheels -- away from the driving wheels in a FWD car but toward the driving wheels in a rear-drive car, where it adds to available traction. In effect, the laws of physics conspire to give RWD cars a bit more grip where they need it when they need it. (This salutary effect is more than canceled out in slippery, wet conditions, where you aren't going to stomp on the accelerator. Then, FWD cars have the edge, in part, because they start out with so much more of their weight over both the driving and the turning wheels. Also, it's simply more stable to pull a heavy wheeled object than to push it -- as any hotel bellhop steering a loaded luggage cart knows. In snow, FWD cars have a third advantage in that they pull the car through the path the front tires create, instead of turning the front tires into mini-snowplows.)

5) "Oversteer" and the Semi-Orgasmic Lock-In Effect: In a rear-drive car, there's a division of labor -- the front tires basically steer the car, and the rear tires push the car down the road. In a FWD car, the front tires do all the work – both steering and applying the power to the road – while the rears are largely along for the ride. That, it turns out, is asking a lot of the front tires. Since the driving wheels tend to lose traction first, the front tires of front-drive cars invariably start slipping in a corner before the lightly loaded rear tires do -- a phenomenon known as "understeer." If you go too fast into a curve -- I mean really too fast -- the car will plow off the road front end first. In rear-drive cars, the rear wheels tend to lose traction first, and the rear of the car threatens to swing around and pass the front end -- "oversteer." If you go too fast into a corner in an oversteering car, the car will tend to spin and fly off the road rear end first.

What's the best way to fly off the road? Safety types prefer frontwards -- understeer. Why? To control an oversteering skid, where the rear wheels are heading for the weeds, you have to both slow down and counterintuitively turn the wheel in the opposite of the direction you're turning. In a front-drive car, with the front wheels slipping, you slow down and keep turning the way you'd been turning to get around the corner in the first place -- a more natural maneuver, since you're pointing the car in the direction you want to go. This is why, for safety reasons, even rear-drive cars sold to average consumers tend to have their springs and other suspension bits set up to make them understeer -- to make the front tires slip first, despite the car's innate oversteering tendency. Only by applying lots of power in a corner can you actually break the rear end of a bread-and-butter rear-drive car like the Mustang loose -- a maneuver favored by sports car freaks, but one you try at your own peril.

Big American manufacturers (all heavily invested in front drive) like to say that for 99 percent of drivers, driving at normal speeds, FWD's inherent understeer and better traction in the wet makes it preferable -- both safer and easier to drive quickly. It's only the 1 percent of speed freaks who enjoy breaking the rear end loose and then catching it with a bit of "reverse lock." Here's where I emphatically dissent.

It's pretty clear to me, after driving hundreds of different vehicles over several decades, that rear drive offers a big aesthetic advantage to ordinary drivers at ordinary speeds in ordinary conditions. Why? The lock-in effect I mentioned earlier. Suppose you go into a corner in a rear-drive car at a reasonable, safe, legal speed. Nothing's about to skid. But you can still feel the front end starting to plow wide a bit. What to do? Step on the gas! Don't stomp on it -- but add a bit of power, and a miraculous thing happens. The front end swings back in, the car tightens its line. Cornering traction seems to increase. And the car feels locked into a groove, balanced between the motive power from the rear and the turning power in the front.

Hit the brake?

You don't have to be a race driver to feel this. You can be a defensive driver and feel it. You can be driving a 1973 Ford Maverick with leaking shocks and you'll feel it. Accountants feel it on the way to the office and housewives feel it on the way to the Safeway. Even Ralph Nader probably feels it. It's a good part of what makes driving a car a sensual act. (What's happening, technically? None of the tires is at its limit of adhesion. But the added speed is making the front tires --which [since they are undriven] have plenty of surplus traction -- apply more force to the road surface to change direction. Meanwhile, the rear of the car is shifting outward, ever so slightly -- not a Bullitt-style power slide, but a subtle attitude adjustment that cancels the plowing effect. The power "helps you through the corner," as Zellner puts it.)

This doesn't happen in a front-drive car. The best an ordinary driver can hope for in a FWD car is that it "corners as if on rails" -- no slippage at all. No plowing -- but also no semi-orgasmic "lock in." More typically, if you hit the accelerator in a fast corner, things get mushy up front (as they did that evening near Jayne Mansfield's house). The lesson the FWD car seems to be teaching is: Try to go faster, and you're punished. Front-drive cars are Puritans! In a rear-drive car, you hit the accelerator and things get better! Rear-drive cars are hedonists. (This is assuming you don't hit the accelerator too hard.)

No front-drive here

I'm not saying there aren't sophisticated techniques that allow FWD cars to do better. A recent issue of Grassroots Motorsports tested a humble FWD Acura RSX against a classy rear-drive BMW. The Acura actually turned laps a bit more quickly. How'd that happen? The Grassroots people realized that by stepping on the brake hard enough on entering a turn, the rear of the Acura could be made to swing wide, canceling out its inherent understeer. (This is the same effect you get by stepping on the gas in a rear-drive car.) But normal drivers aren't going to mash the brakes and go sliding through turns like a rally champion. Nor does braking to achieve "lock-in" seem as satisfying as accelerating to achieve lock in. I suppose I shouldn't knock it until I've tried it -- but I'm not going to try it! That's the point. Housewives heading to the Safeway aren't going to try it either. The joys of rear-drive are accessible to them -- it's the joys of FWD that are reserved for the skilled Grassroots Motorsport elite.

Explaining SUVs: Now that the goo-goo bien pensant scales have fallen from my eyes, and I recognize the front-drive-for-the-masses movement as the Carter-era energy crisis con it is, several previously inexplicable things become explicable. Why did truck-based SUVs suddenly become popular just as Detroit shifted to front-wheel drive for its passenger cars? Was it (as anti-SUV activists claim) because the SUVs were exempt from various safety and economy standards -- or because the SUVs still had rear-wheel drive, with all its subtle satisfactions? Why do all BMWs (and virtually all Mercedes-Benzes) persist in using rear-wheel drive? Why do my friends, who aren't fast drivers, say that BMWs just feel better?

It's also now clear to me why Acura is in trouble (it only offers FWD sedans), why GM is busy working on a new "Tubular" rear-drive chassis, why the Infiniti G-35 and Lexus IS-300 (both rear drive) are so popular, and why the RWD Cadillac CTS and Lincoln LS are so refreshing to drive.

I'm not saying that any rear-wheel-drive car is better than any front-wheel-drive car, the way, say, any car with plain black tires looks better than any car with whitewalls. But it's close! Front-drive cars can be fun. Even bad sex is fun. But why choose it?

Update [18 Dec 2005|04:51pm]
It's official that I'm sick as a dog. This is stupid. I think I slept for 3/4 of the past two days, but it hasn't gotten any better.. just worse.

In more important news, I started more work on some Decrepitaph songs. I have so much music flowing through my head all the time that I have to get it out and recorded as soon as I can. Even though I've been sick, I've had a full song going through my head for 2 days, so I wrote it all down. When I have the strength, I will record a rough version of it. It sounds cool in my head, and it might be the third complete Decrepitaph song that I'm happy with and that will be on my demo. I'm not looking to get signed to some huge label or anything, but I would like to be able to release my form of real Death Metal easily.

I believe that's it. I feel too crappy to type more.

RIP [25 Nov 2005|03:07pm]
Actor Who Portrayed Mr. Miyagi of 'The Karate Kid' Dies

LOS ANGELES (Nov. 25) - Actor Pat Morita, whose portrayal of the wise and dry-witted Mr. Miyagi in "The Karate Kid" earned him an Oscar nomination, has died. He was 73.

Morita died Thursday at his home in Las Vegas of natural causes, said his wife of 12 years, Evelyn. She said in a statement that her husband, who first rose to fame with a role on "Happy Days," had "dedicated his entire life to acting and comedy."

In 1984, he appeared in the role that would define his career and spawn countless affectionate imitations. As Kesuke Miyagi, the mentor to Ralph Macchio's "Daniel-san," he taught karate while trying to catch flies with chopsticks and offering such advice as "wax on, wax off" to guide Daniel through chores to improve his skills.

Morita said in a 1986 interview with The Associated Press he was billed as Noriyuki "Pat" Morita in the film because producer Jerry Weintraub wanted him to sound more ethnic. He said he used the billing because it was "the only name my parents gave me."

He lost the 1984 best supporting actor award to Haing S. Ngor, who appeared in "The Killing Fields."

For years, Morita played small and sometimes demeaning roles in such films as "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and TV series such as "The Odd Couple" and "Green Acres." His first breakthrough came with "Happy Days," and he followed with his own brief series, "Mr. T and Tina."

"The Karate Kid," led to three sequels, the last of which, 1994's "The Next Karate Kid," paired him with a young Hilary Swank.

Morita was prolific outside of the "Karate Kid" series as well, appearing in "Honeymoon in Vegas," "Spy Hard," "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" and "The Center of the World." He also provided the voice for a character in the Disney movie "Mulan" in 1998.

Born in northern California on June 28, 1932, the son of migrant fruit pickers, Morita spent most of his early years in the hospital with spinal tuberculosis. He later recovered only to be sent to a Japanese-American internment camp in Arizona during World War II.

"One day I was an invalid," he recalled in a 1989 AP interview. "The next day I was public enemy No. 1 being escorted to an internment camp by an FBI agent wearing a piece."

After the war, Morita's family tried to repair their finances by operating a Sacramento restaurant. It was there that Morita first tried his comedy on patrons.

Because prospects for a Japanese-American standup comic seemed poor, Morita found steady work in computers at Aerojet General. But at age 30 he entered show business full time.

"Only in America could you get away with the kind of comedy I did," he commented. "If I tried it in Japan before the war, it would have been considered blasphemy, and I would have ended in leg irons. "

Morita is survived by his wife and three daughters from a previous marriage.

Another Charvel!! [04 Nov 2005|09:19am]
Yep, I'm slowly getting closer to my dream of a complete arsenal of Charvel Avengers [that's a Rhoads V to those not into Charvel-speak]

I picked up my third one on eBay last night. This one is red and in pretty mint shape besides a little tip of the headstock that broke off and was glued back on hah It sounds worse than it is, trust me.

Now I have red, black, and blue.. All I need is white!!! I've been waiting on a white one forever, and that's actually the color I want the most, but I haven't found a good one since I went back to work and had money to burn.

As usual, pics coming when it gets here next week -I-

I can't believe it's been 10 days since I updated. 10 days of nothing. The most exiciting thing was picking up Land of the Dead and the Herschell Gordon Lewis 6 DVD box set yesterday. Severe should buy this if he doesn't have it already.

We wrote the 4th new Skulleton song today since we finished up with the recording of the album. It's all mixed and ready to be pressed now. As soon as the cover artwork is done we will be getting the first 100-200 copies done up. I just want this thing to be out. I hope true thrash fans get into it, but I honestly don't care if no one likes it. We're not the best band ever, but what we do is fairly interesting I think.

My mom bought an Acura MDX and I despise it although I haven't driven it yet. She was complaining about not knowing how to program the side mirrors and stuff. Yes, you have to fucking program the mirrors. Christ, just give me a Lotus Elise with a heater, a CD player, and the bare frame showing through and I'm happy. Fuck nagivation systems, fuck 7 passenger seating, fuck programmable headlights, fuck all that.

I just ate a good steak and cheese sub and now I'm tired. I'm going to watch some of the HG Lewis movies now. Satan.

Big Weekend [12 Oct 2005|02:56pm]
Ok, I'm actually going to spend a little time on this update. I know you won't care, but pretend you do =]

First off, Anne was here for 5 days. We had a great time and it was probably the best time we've had yet. Of course she talked me into buying lots of stuff I don't need but really want [ok, I NEED them]

Here's a quick summary of the past week:

Thursday - My Marshall Mode Four head FINALLY comes in. I got it off eBay and the seller was a complete douche. Luckily the head itself is in perfect condition and I saved myself $750 over buying it in a music store. I wish I didn't need to get TWO cabinets for this thing to fully sound like it should. It also sucks that the cabinets are $1000 a piece. But trust me, I'm working on making this happen very soon.

The head itself is all metal, so it makes taking a decent pic of it very difficult.. at least with my camera. Here's the best I could do:

Friday - Pick up Anne and head to Newbury Comics to raid the DVD's. I think I picked up 8 or so here. Some choice titles like the first Hellraiser, Argento's The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, Demons 2, Street Trash [awful! DIE BEN!], and a few others. Then we went to my fav cheapo DVD place where the guy loves me [not in that way, FAGGOT]. He brought in like 6 cases of used DVD's for us to look through. Everything we picked out he sold to us for $2 or $3 a piece. Nothing really amazing, although Anne did get Dawn of the Dead for $3 and I got some stuff like Jeepers Creepers and Wrong Turn for $2, which is about what they're worth to me hah

Saturday - This was the lazy day. Had band practice til like 3 or so, then we went to Capones and got amazing food. The calzones there are so fucking amazing. BBQ chicken with ham, bacon, and extra cheese rules your guy touching life you stupid fag. Came home and watched a couple movies and passed out from being flogged with food.

Sunday - Decided to go to the Rock n' Shock horror show in dykey Worcester. In all honesty, I think both of us thought the show would be better, but it was still ok. I got a sweeeeet Omen zip up hoodie and a couple other horror shirts and posters and stuff. Anne got a Land of the Dead hoodie autographed by Big Daddy himself. She also wanted to make out with the clown on stilts that was there. Came home and ate tons of corned beef [best food ever] and watched more movies. I'm upset I fell asleep watching Basket Case 3, but I will watch it again soon, I promise.

Here's us with Big Daddy:

Monday - Woke up and went out to get fatter. I guess since it was a stupid holiday, the taco buffet isn't there. That's retarded as hell. So we went to Kingston House of Pizza instead and ate more tasty stuff. Then we went to the brand new Army Navy store that opened up here. It was ok I guess, but I don't think it'll be there for too long unless they pack it with more stuff ASAP. Next up was the costume shop right down the street. I wanted to show Anne the amazing Jason Voorhees mask they had there. Well, after her talking me into it [ok, not really] I decided to whip out the plastic and charge the sucker. I was quite happy with my purchase of this gem.

We went outside that night and I did my best impression of my hero. I wish I was the same weight and 1 foot taller, then I'd be the perfect Jason haha

Tuesday - Doomsday. Had to bring Anne to the airport in the morning. This part always blows Asian dudes. I left and she sent me a message saying her flight was delayed.. and delayed.. and delayed.. and wfoijurfoiejhoie. I decided to stop at the Guitar Center 10 minutes from the Queerport. I'm glad I did! I guess they were having a special Columbus Day sale on Monday and they decided to just keep the sale prices going for a bit longer. I went in and saw a GODLY Kramer start that was priced at $349.. on sale for $100!!! Holy crap I knew right then I was leaving with this fucking gem. It needed a little bit of adjustment, which they did there for me in about 5 minutes. It also needed a new set of knobs which I gladly paid $4 for. The paint on it is nearly flawless and it plays ALMOST as good as a Charvel haha Nothing can top those. Sorry all you BC Rich nerds but Jackson wins any day of the week.

I don't know much about Kramer guitars, but I've wanted a Vanguard for a while. It's basically their take on a Rhoads V and it's sweet in white with all black hardware. Anyway, I figured for $100 I couldn't go wrong. An old school Kramer with a Floyd Rose and a great clean body for cheap money is awesome. I came home and looked up the model I have, which is the Savant III, and apparently it's pretty damn rare. I guess it was made for a limited time in 1989 before Kramer went bankrupt. I searched for prices and stuff on this guitar, but I couldn't find anything. This might be an eBay cash cow when I get sick of it hah

I believe that's it. I just ate the most insane calzone ever too, by the way. I'll post a picture of that too because you're not worthy of this fucking monster:

Here's a full screen shot of all my guitars so far. The stupid flash makes the Kramer look some shade of early 90's Ford Escort blue for some reason. It took me forever to get the REAL color to come out in the pic above. Anyway, here they are.. SOMEONE GIVE ME A KELLYSTAR NOW.

Marshall Mode Four [12 Sep 2005|06:14am]
I sold my Marshall JCM 800 combo and the Peavey bass cab I had it hooked into for $735. As great as the amp is, since I got my full stack, I just don't use it anymore. Also, my recent fascination with the 350 watt Marshall Mode Four amp has taken over my brain and I realize I need one badly.

I will be looking on eBay for the head used and I will probably pick up one of the 400 watt cabinets soon after. If I can find a half stack together, then I will go for that. More info when I know it..

Anyone tried that amazing amp? It sounds like old DM right out of the box. It's really incredible that you can sound like Into The Grave without a distortion pedal now. Crazy. I will thrash the crap out of that amp when I get it. Oh, and it will eventually be a full stack.. you can count on that one.

In other news, the Skulleton demo is 99% done. We just need to add backing vocals to a couple songs, add in a couple samples, and then mix it. If anyone does CD layouts cheap, get in touch. I'm too lazy to do it myself I think. I will post a song here or on the website when it's done.


That's it.
