Traveled up to the Bay Area this weekend to record vocals for a cover song Blaqk Audio is doing for a Love and Rockets tribute album. Adam was nice enough to come over and join us for backing vocals. 
Then spent 7 hours in my hotel room editing and mixing.
Also had tofu and brown rice with Smith.
Has anyone noticed that when you start up a Macbook it plays the first chord of "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor?

From my DF post:

I thought an update might be appreciated on what we’ve been up to the last month, and what we’ll be up to for the next few weeks.

We spent April at Henson Studios (yes, the one with the huge statue of Kermit the Frog on the roof) finishing up the last batch of songs for the record with the talented and witty Irish producer Jacknife Lee. He’s done tons of great work, from Regina Spektor and Bloc Party to U2 and R.E.M., plus he lets his daughters draw on him and then gets the drawings tattoed on. We came out of that session with some unique stuff and I think it really rounded out the record in a spectacular way.

Tomorrow, we start mixing with Rich Costey, who is also a prodigious mixer and producer. We actually worked with him years ago when we did that Nine Inch Nails cover, Head Like a Hole. He’s done great records as well, he mixed and produced the last 2 Muse albums, he’s done Mars Volta, Brand New, Interpol, Foo Fighters, Mastodon, and he can benchpress probably 105 pounds minimum, so we’re very much looking forward to how the mixes turn out.

As you know, we’ll be playing in Toronto at the end of June and doing festivals in Europe at the end of summer, but we’re starting to put together a slew of new tour dates, here and overseas, and we’ll keep you updated as we start confirming them.We know it’s been a few minutes since our last record and tours but we appreciate you waiting patiently and not patiently for the 8th album to be completed.
It’ll be worth the wait.

Was anyone at this show? 2002. The palindrome year, folks.

I don't go see movies, I just wait for the book to come out.

Davey and I have pretty stellar faces in this one

Davey and I playing ping-pong during the recording of Art of Drowning. Check my devastating backhand. Whenever I unleash it, all bikes are blown into the rafters.

For anyone in the Los Angeles area, Davey and I are going to be hosting Loveline tonight with Dr. Drew. Totally forgot about it til this second.

Does anyone have swine flu yet?

If you're home sick with the swine flu, you can pass the time watching the news, shortayy.
