hmm.

well, if you go to http://grantimatter.com, then navigate to "grant covers n" you should find it.

Let me know if that doesn't work.

And I'd like to mention, I should have the video for "Scared Straight" done by the end of the week. And since I don't play an instrument, all of my covers seem to have fallen through since I haven't been able to contact my partner in crime over the last few weeks. Grrr. However, I have resolved to do a video for Cinnamon! Take THAT!

You've got me doing those shifty eyes.

Does that make sense?

How's that Scent of Lime going? I'm eager to hear it!

Ummmm....well....you see...whathadhappendwas....I haven't heard from my cohort in almost a month. I'm not a musician or at least a competent one to be able to work a musical instrument long enough or cohernently enough to create or cover a song. Therefore, I have gotten nowhere on the covers. My part in this art, is just Video. I release all the other proclamations on songs to everyone else! Get to it!

The Scared Straight video will be done this weekend, or Tyler Durden gets my balls.

(I think this is the right thread)

Anyway, it seems Deerhoof is giving away an album of their songs, covered by fans. http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/news/05-09/26.shtml

Now, it seems to me, that The Long Winters are well on their way to being able to do the same, after the covers some of you have recorded. Am I right?

which is fine, we don't want to outdo the band by coming up with an album before they do

so, do I have anything to contribute yet? No. But I could say 'hey, look how long it took John to actually release any of his work'. Although my current excuse is that the line-in on my notebook is a bit screwed.

My current excuse is lack of experience.... I mean, I just started learning how to play the guitar (or "rip the axe" in rock lingo) a few months ago.

I might not be able to bust out a wicked LW cover, but I can TOTALLY struggle through an accoustic version of "I Remember You" by Skid Row.

Oh simple Hair Metal, where would my playing be without thee...

So. Ummm...I suppose Tyler Durden has by balls. Who would have thought babysitting a couple of girls (ages 5 & 3) would have been so tiring? There's only one scene left to slap together, I'm still looking at the end of this week to finish it. Perhaps tonight.

Do it Yarn! Do it!

I will absolutely see to it that an album of these covers is produced and made available, if we have enough songs completed, and I would be deeply flattered and honored if such a thing actually came to pass. It will, of course, include any accompanying videos.

Awesome.

I think that's the motivation I needed.
