Hey all, it's the month of Christmas and everyone is just a little bit happier and a little bit crazier. That's how I'm experiencing things at least. Lot of fun stuff going on in regards to music, the music we've been working on as The Buttercream Gang is going really well AND we're almost done working on the 3rd annual Glial Cell Christmas Album. It's a project we have with a bunch of our friends contributing lyrics and music. It started with Rob and our buddy Nicolas Ramirez and each year has taken on more contributors. Once it's all done I'm sure we'll post it up here to download or something like that. till then you can hear some of the past songs (not all Christmas songs) at the http://www.myspace.com/glialcellular.
We're also playing a show tomorrow night in SF for the Janet Pomoroy Center Art Show. Their starting a program called SF Smiles, which to my understanding is trying to bring smiling back as something cool. haha. No more glum faces!!! So, partly because of that and partly because of coincidence as far as timing goes, I made a mix of all happy, smily songs. Check the link below for the download.
