Sometimes I feel like I am on the verge of something wonderful and then I get kicked in the nuts. At first it seemed incredible that someone was interested in our music and wanted to release us. But the stuff that is happening just gets weirder and weirder. Emperor Penguin Recordings printed THOUSANDS of CD covers for our second CD. The catch is, they made up song names as place holders and then printed the damn things anyway. Now they want to know if we can write songs to match the names. And some stupid names like "enemy crane", "Mother's Monkey" and "Sixteenth Century Archive." This is a deal-breaker for me. So now what? We haven't even sold enough of the first CD to cover the expense of putting it out. I don't have any access to distribution channels and I will be damned if I put out a vanity project. I am this close to hanging it all up.
