Kurtis---

Thanks a lot!


Lucas--

Sure.

I've read a few unkind youtube posts regarding the green screen. Well, it wasn't in the budget to do those locations for real, although we did film those actual locations for the project. (As opposed to stock footage, or putting me by the pyramids, or the moon....) It's actually only 5% of the whole project, but it seems to have made some negative noise already. Do I wish it came out a bit better? I indeed do! But I didn't have a big movie budget, and that's the truth. We're not trying to really "fool" anyone, but just trying to do something different from the "guy in the studio" thing.

I'm certainly happy to entertain your questions! Thanks, man.

Holy $hit...You are tearing it the fook up in those clips! The Manic Depression sections are sick.

My favorite background is your drum room with the snare rack and the kits stacked. Screw the beaches and creeks. More drums!

:D

I'm neither here nor there on it, it just seemed different than the rest of the vid and I noticed it. Definitely won't affect my preorder, loved the first vid and was psyched to hear you're doing a second.

Agree with Christopher, totally digging that take on Manic Depression. Can't wait for the release.

Christopher---

Thanks, man!

Lucas--

Thanks, and thanks for your order. It's truly appreciated. Glad the GS didn't put you off. Just trying some new things and some seem to have made it an issue, much to my surprise. I appreciate your kind words.

Chooch--

Thanks! How are you, man? Hope all is well with you!

John--

Thanks so much for your order. I'm grateful and thankful for each one, and for yours. Cheers!

langmick--

On my way to AC now. Gonna have a long ass soundcheck on Saturday, as we haven't played a lot of that stuff since November. Hope you enjoy the gig!

Thanks again to all--
Todd

Must be pretty damn fun to play tunes like this.



I recommend the Italian subs at the White House Todd...good stuff.
