it's not such a good idea to go hard after a long hiatus . today i understand why i stopped drinking dark liquor .
argh .
i'm functioning normally , of course , but the hint of a dull headache is kinda slowing me down. i'm chugging water in hopes that i'll be completely back to normal by the time i have to step into the vocal booth . yes . we are still in the studio . i've learned to put my impatience on the back burner in hopes of making the best music possible . i'm ignoring other ppl's urgent demands . i'll know when it's done cuz it'll be a completeness that i'll feel in my body . hopefully it will feel better than the slight nausea i currently feel in my tummy . southern comfort is not the best thursday nite accessory , but thank god for 9th Wonder . he had us dancing & grinding like we were back in 8th grade . my legs hurt . i'm all fucked up today . when i have all of my wits back i'll explain the way it feels to be driven crazy .

so, youtube is funnystyle sometimes & for some reason decided that day 3's video update went against their upload terms . it is now day 4 & we decided yesterday to move on from "Dollar or More" to finish a song we demo'd with Greg & Kara Diguardia a few months ago . it's called , "Mama's Back" & so far it's a pretty catchy tune . we decided to use the "Street Dreams" structure , basing the song around 2 parts that build up into a climax at the end of the song . so far so good . enjoy . . .

Baby with 2 faces born in north India

Doctors say infant with rare condition is doing well

A baby with two faces was born in a northern Indian village, where she is doing well and is being worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess, her father said Tuesday.

The baby, Lali, apparently has an extremely rare condition known as craniofacial duplication, where a single head has two faces. Except for her ears, all of Lali's facial features are duplicated — she has two noses, two pairs of lips and two pairs of eyes.

"My daughter is fine — like any other child," said Vinod Singh, 23, a poor farm worker.

Lali has caused a sensation in the dusty village of Saini Sunpura, 25 miles east of New Delhi. When she left the hospital, eight hours after a normal delivery on March 11, she was swarmed by villagers, said Sabir Ali, the director of Saifi Hospital.

"She drinks milk from her two mouths and opens and shuts all the four eyes at one time," Ali said.

Rural India is deeply superstitious and the little girl is being hailed as a return of the Hindu goddess of valor, Durga, a fiery deity traditionally depicted with three eyes and many arms.

'Leading a normal life'
Up to 100 people have been visiting Lali at her home every day to touch her feet out of respect, offer money and receive blessings, Singh told The Associated Press.

"Lali is God's gift to us," said Jaipal Singh, a member of the local village council. "She has brought fame to our village."

Village chief Daulat Ram said he planned to build a temple to Durga in the village.

"I am writing to the state government to provide money to build the temple and help the parents look after their daughter," Ram said.

Lali's condition is often linked to serious health complications, but the doctor said she was doing well.

"She is leading a normal life with no breathing difficulties," said Ali, adding that he saw no need for surgery.

Lali's parents were married in February 2007. Lali is their first child.

Singh said he took his daughter to a hospital in New Delhi where doctors suggested a CT scan to determine whether her internal organs were normal, but Singh said he felt it was unnecessary.

"I don't feel the need of that at this stage as my daughter is behaving like a normal child, posing no problems," he said.

h o m e s t r e t c h : take 1 . . . the vocal booth !



so ,
a lot of people who don't have the balls to do music tend to talk a lot of trash about those who actually decide to pursue their musical dreams . typical . as a vocal expressionist i tend to do things a little different from most singers . i'm the type of person who feels confined by headphones . i don't think they're adequate in the recording process . come to find out , our producer , Greg Wells feels the same . we started off the vocal part of the session recording normally ; i was wearing headphones & sounding pitchy & self-conscious in my vocal attitude . Greg asked me how i felt singing in front of speakers minus the headphones . I've always wanted to attempt recording like that , but many producers / engineers don't understand the limitations of haeadphones . thus the reason i hate live in-ears . peep the clip , & try it for yourself . the minute we excluded the headphones the vocal recording sounded a million times better . thank god we have a great producer in the room helping us execute all of our brilliant ideas correctly .



up-to-date progress on the last few weeks of recording our warner bros record . all of you up & coming singers / songwriters / producers should find this helpful . if not , who cares , just dig into our process :)

stay tuned !

thx rio baby !

the latest greatest .



d'leau sent me this photo that he found & i instantly got misty . nevermind my drunk face in the photo , which also features my writing partner / twin , polyester , my lovely partner in crime , brook , & my big homie reese 1 aka niki of black morris . he's been gone since november & life hasn't really been the same . pls believe that when he's back on the streets he will be killing shit . i miss him dearly .

on another note , i just heard that my darling nikki jean has been receiving death threats from neo-nazi idiots on youtube . disturbing , mostly because i can't imagine someone wanting to kill such a lovely creature , but i guess hate is a debilitating sickness that transcends true beauty & intelligence . send a little extra love her way today .

in other news , i'd like to extend my warmest congrats to ms nonameko on her marriage & bun in the oven . i've known noni since college . . . we attended calarts together back in 2000 , she in the music program & i studying film . the universe brought us back together years later & today was the first time in almost a year that we were able to connect .

as for J*DaVeY news , we are currently in the homestretch of our album's progress . the rest of april will be a whirlwind , but we're more than prepared to finally get it done . we've been taking our time to really assert who we are as artists & it seems that the hardwork is finally paying off .

as for jack davey news i am so content with life & love & everything else that i don't really have too much to say lately . . . i'm sure that will change within the next few hours . . . stay t u n e d . . . . . .
