Different strokes I guess on the music thing. I like a range of vocals and when they're especially brutal I think it's awesome. I do like something I can sing along to though.
As far as a fan base goes...we don't really have one unless you count our friends. Anyway I'm not worried about alienating anyone. If people are super impressed by girls playing music and only like us because of that feminine quality they can fuck themselves as far as I'm concerned. Demanding me to be feminine and have a "female voice" is sexist. Women and men should enjoy us because of the music we make, not because we are or are not a particular type of something. Eh...I don't know how to get it across without sounding like a bitch. This must be why we don't have fans ;).
Yeah I'll be working on quitting smoking soon. I'm giving myself until the end of the semester so it's one less thing to worry about while I'm slamming my head against the wall trying to fit shit into my brain.
yeah, i better stay away from Mr. Libertarian. i tend to be of the mind that libertarians are cranks at worst and unrealistic utopianists at best. not for me! FAAST looks more my speed. thanks for the info!
Oh yeah, and that nu-metal stuff is crap! I love the old stuff as well, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Slayer, Meanstreak etc. I really do like the screamy/growly vocals stuff though. I wish I could make my voice do that stuff, but I don't think I smoke enough lol. I've been getting into metal and really heavy, brutal shit a lot lately. It was never my favorite before, but I'm hearing a lot of cool stuff thanks to Pandora radio. It's the only stuff that'll block out obnoxious coffee rock when I'm studying at a coffee shop.
I hear ya. Between school and work and everything else I have little time to focus on music. Keep working at it though, if it's what you love!
The umlaut is usually omitted when we type the name out. My keyboard is set up for American English and that's the only reall reason why. When writing it out we stick it over the 1st O every time. We actually have an awesome logo that our friend drew out for us that is on our
That's the best part. He's in Kuwait. He's not in any immediate danger, unless that government stops paying it's citizens hush money to not revolt. The odds of him coming home in one piece are actually better than mine would be if I were to fly across country and back.
Bingo. We tried to make the name Doers of it look German or Swedish (throwing random Umlauts in there) so metal kids would come to our shows and get their faces melted off. Hehe. It just causes confusion, which we also like. You are among the very few who have actually figured it out without help!
You're an aspiring comic I see. Do you tour at all or just do local ameture gigs?
Well, yeah, it's the way to go if it works ;). I don't work with algae, but there are groups who do and I think that's a better option because it won't take up as much land. Our country alone has a lot of energy demands to meet, I wouldn't want to wipe out more forests just so we can grow the plants that would sustain our lust for fuel. I don't want to start taking the bus either...so it's a tough nut to crack!
I think I did hear something about that microbe...can't remember though. I'll have to look around for the story. Sounds interesting.
Yes, its compositional analysis of plant matter to make ethonol. We're basically trying to find different materials with which to make a commercially viable biofuel that doesn't use a feedcrop. My group tests switchgrass, sunflower, poplar etc for lignin content in the cell walls. It makes me sneeze a lot because it's a lot of handling of dried and ground up plant matter.
Haha yeah don't I know it. The college I attend is actually right across the street from one of those mega-churches. It's really frustrating having these guys in my philosophy classes who seem to think that "faith" is somehow an argument for everything.
