We emailed our contact at our label, Strange Attractors nearly a month before our performance, with no response at all. So we email again. No response. So we email again.

I was supposed to go with a girl named Sam at 12:50 or so, but due to wacky circumstances, I ended up leaving early and all by myself, to fabulous Norman, Oklahoma. I was just on time and made the audition. I learned a valuable audition trick today: give them lots of options. Start subtle, ending with completely bizarre. It's not only fun, it's good for actually getting hired for these things! When I drove back, I decided to fill up my car. My card wouldn't go through! I soon realized I only had about $40 in the bank. Don't worry! I had cach on me, and to my joy I found a nice check for some silly thing I did a little while back, the Q'doba farting man commercial!
