All Good Things

Did anyone see "All Good Things"? I thought Kirsten Dunst & Mr. Gosling did a great job, but the transformation of Mr. Marks from an easy-going, carefree normal guy into a fucking weirdo who abuses his wife and wears women's clothing was waaaay too quick and not planned well enough. When I watch a movie, I'm completely engrossed. I understand the director probably wanted to spring Mr. Mark's insanity on us without notice, but it wouldve been nice to see some nuances of craziness at the beginning of the film. no?

Also - the song at the end of the rolling credits was a TERRIBLE choice. Completely irresponsible!!!

K just had to get that off my mind.

"Oh Lord!" Filming Day 1

My goal is to make a music video for every song on our new LP. I just love videos and videos and videos.

Nate will be filming Oh Lord!, complete with 15 stuffed animals, alyse on a bed, and fun lamps. That's all I'll say for now. Things may become inappropriate...:)

Maurice Narcisse Video - Night 1

Tonight we began filming the video for "Maurice Narcisse". Jimi Patterson and Emme Pickett are directing.

I don't want to give too much away - but we filmed the first scene at Bru Cafe in New Haven. My fellow New Haven-ites will definitely recognize the extras:).

As we were filming the "Van scene", Jeff hopped out of the vehicle, slammed the door, and went running. When we went to shoot Take 2, Jeff made a surprising discovery that he had accidentally locked the van doors. Oh, and yes, the van was RUNNING. Not a good predicament to be in. Alas, Triple A made a speedy rescue and all was well.

Video Stills to come!

NY Mini Tour FUN FUN

So....I think playing more than 2 shows in the same state within 72 hours constitutes as a mini tour.

With that being said, our mini tour of NY was very fun.

Thursday night we played w/ Magnetic Island and Binary Marketing Show at the Delancey. No offense to the Delancey (actually, maybe full offense to the Delancey), but it seemed like there was a B.O./Cat Piss/Sewage Ghost wandering around trying to make friends with everyone. If I could see the ghost, I would've told him/her to please take a shower. It smelled AWFUL. Alas, we stuck it out and played to a decent crowd of well-wishers. Binary Marketing had some killer beats, and Magnetic Island rawked it out.

Friday night was fucking great. We played w/ Hard Nips at a Cooper Union College Pot Luck/Dance Party at Foundation Hall. The Kids were DIGGING EULA. A hefty mosh pit/dance party ensued. Thanks to the twenty-something-yr-olds (and teens!) that got down. And thanks to Clemens S. Poole for inviting us!

Saturday night was Kevin's Birthday Blood Bath at The Charleston. Billy Brown started things off around 9pm... then the sound guy started buggin the fuck out because the 2nd band hadn't showed up yet. I kept telling him we have PLENTY of time but he was inconsolable. Everything worked out in the end w/ a RAD set by I'm Turning Into, Shark?, & then we closed out the evening's festivities. We actually played Fight Riff twice, a EULA first. Thanks Shark? & ITI for playing!!

And thanks to everyone who came out! Pictures to come.

I Am Fest Recap

I Am Fest kicked my ass - actually, O'Death kicked my ass. They are incredible. Fake Babies too. I have lots and lots of pictures but I haven't posted them yet. Below are a few.

It was very fun to be surrounded by water while we played on the Pier. Ultra hip.

We covered a George Michael song, however, our saxophonist canceled on us. We played it anyway. Sorry to everyone who thought it sucked, ha. Actually, I'm not sorry cuz it didn't suck! :)

Filming - Day 4

Yesterday was my last scene for American Jubilee. I'm sad its over. However, it was a good day to end on: I had the privilege of being serenaded by Jeff Kimball (Otis) singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in a pet store.

Filming - Day 3

Filming was a little dicey last night ... there were a lot of extras so I couldn't fuck up. To make things worse, I had about 6 pages of dialog to do w/ Otis:( . YIKES! It was a good time though. I love it when it starts getting really, really late, and everyone gets sillier and sillier as the night drags on. It definitely kept my spirits up. Here are a few pics:

A quiet moment early on in the evening...

A silly moment later on in the evening...

Filming Day 1 - American Jubilee

Alyse plays Cassie in the film "American Jubilee" written and directed by Ryan Casey. Here is a sneak peek from her first shoot.

Getting "Target" ready for the shoot. She had her own trailer stocked with carrots. JK.

Rain!! Waiting around in the barn to begin filming.

Going over some blocking.


The very stupendous crew.

Monday, July 12, 2010

Sat. July 24th
Backyard BBQ @ The Firehouse [Worcester, MA]
w/ The Billy Blue Band

Sat. July 31st
Popeye's Garage [50 Goffe St, New Haven CT]
w/ True Womanhood

Alyse in a Film!

Alyse has just been cast in the upcoming film "American Jubilee" from Writer/Director Ryan Casey. She is going to be playing the role of Cassie, fiancee of the lead Otis. Aside from dealing with Otis' immaturity (at 60 yrs old), Cassie dreams of moving to Nashville, and is an aspiring singer/songwriter. Sounds kinda familiar (except for the 60-yr-old finacee part). Shooting begins in 1 week. YIKES! Better learn those lines.

Check out the link below for a little synopsis!!

Day 15 - Recording

Jesus I just want to be done w/ this album!!!!!! We're getting into that weird point right now where pretty much everything is tracked on all 9 songs, but there is SOOOOO much left to do! All the mixing, all the vocal redos, adding extra instruments in certain parts..... aaaaaahhhhhhh.

Oh yea I hate when I record vocals one night, think its rad, then when I revisit them the next week, they are TERRIBLE. Why why why?? I feel like I have to do 50% of them all over again. Fucking annoying.

Tonight we tracked the bass and guitar on the new new song. It went well. This song is so new that we are very open to ideas for other instruments entering and leaving the song. That's good and bad. Our engineers/producers LOVE giving insight, plus the bands' thoughts, sometimes its too many cooks in the kitchen. Poor Jeff's head was about to explode from all the advice of how his bass parts could and should sound. Kinda frustrating. But I'm looking forward to making this track very Dance Trash.

Send me some good vibes so that I can finish writing the lyrics.

Recording - Day 14

We recorded a brand new song tonite, never played live before. It doesn't have a name yet. It's super dancy. It's one of Nate's compositions. I wanted to call it "Wake Up", but that sounds too much like our other song on the album, "Awake". People are going to think we fall asleep all the time! ha. Or are on drugz all the time.

We tracked drums on it, and some extra little cymbal and bell hits. Next time we'll do bass & guitar. If only I could finish writing the lyrics!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "Wake up, you know that I'm - Failing - to see ...."???? It'll come, it'll come:)

Recording Day 12 - Canyon

Not sure if I ever said this on here before, but I like to record songs at home first, then bring them to the studio. I recorded the song "Canyon" all by myself (yes I'm a big girl) at home (I use Cubase). I did 2 vocals, drums (electronic), keys, guitar, and these plucky string things. I broke down each track into a .wav file, and brought it to the studio tonight. I was pleasantly suprised how good it sounded, so we're keeping it!!! YAY!!

So we spent this evening dumping the wavs, lining them up, eq-ing, and some other stuff.

Oh I also re-did vocals on AWAKE. I was not happy w/ the originals.

So we got 3 more songs to go:

1.) A Mark Unkind
2.) Like A Flood
3.) Hand Grenade (secret track)

I'm hoping to be done tracking by early june, and fully mixed by July 1. Hoping.

Mini Tour w/ Dinosaur Feathers ~ Recap!

We had an atomic blast on tour w/ beloved brooklynites, Dinosaur Feathers!

First show (4/29) was at The Whitehaus in Jamaica Plain, MA. I am very proud to say that our music started the first dance-mosh pit:) Super fun. The show was in a cave-like basement, complete with cave-y lights and reverby walls.

Then we drove over to Albany, NY (4/30) for WCDB's Basement show on Evergreen Ave. I can't get enough of these basement shows, everyone is so supportive and party-friendly. We took a walk around Albany and grapped some "I Love NY" pizza. How fitting, ha.

Then TWO shows on saturday (may 1). May Day celebration on the Green in New Haven, then a late-night show @ Rudy's (new haven) with The Art of Shooting (also brooklynites).

Needless to say it was a success and if you haven't checked out DinoFeathers, what are you waiting for:
