Getting closer

Filed under: Announcements,Day to Day — Drew Johnson @ 9:26 pm

I hope to have the new record posted before Thanksgiving. We’ve run into a couple of hiccups in the last week or so but we hope to have them resolved shortly. J. Christopher Hughes has the last song to go on the record in his possession and he’s been in Nashville recording an album from dusk ’til dawn for the last couple of weeks. He was kind enough to do a fancy little file transfer of the tune but there was a little mix-up in transit but it’s on its way I promise.

Dino and I have been furiously trying to come up with a title for the new record. Naming a record is only slightly less cumbersome than naming a band. It’s probably going to be something along the lines of “Posthumously, The Formula Kid”. I remember how convinced I was that “Invention of the Wheel” should have been called “Grandma and the Glue Factory”. I still haven’t gotten over that one.

Have you ever taken one of those email-this-goofy-questionnaire-to-all-your-friends surveys? The ones that ask stuff like: Britney or Christina? Fold or bunch? What is your most embarrassing habit besides booger eating? Yeah me either but I was thinking about those things the other night as I was watching The Lawrence Welk Show. If those surveys ever asked “What are some T.V. shows that you watch but are embarrassed to admit to?” I would have two answers: The Lawrence Welk Show and Mind Freak. Needless to say I’m infinitely more humiliated by the fact that I’m fascinated with Mind Freak. Get off me, I dig magic…and narcissistic pretty-boys with high cheekbones and Jovi-hair.


  1. I watched Mind Freak for over an hour and I pooped a rabbit….don’t believe me? Well you shouldn’t because that’s as much bullcorn as that show. I hate it because of this kid who probably got picked on in High School is trying to prove that he’s cool by using bad actors and video editing. Plus what’s with the weird transitions in the desert with the old people and picture frames…..

    Where did the name Formula Kid come from. That and Grandma and the Glue Factory. Or Fugitive Popes, or Kofterwied. Or any other name you’ve ever had.

    I love the idea of “Posthumously”…at least after I looked it up on

  2. I’m alright with Mind Freak. And seriously, is Christina vs. Britney even a question anymore?

  4. Taylor, I’ll do a post in the next few days and try to answer your questions about the various names of bands and albums.
