got an email a few days ago from my cousin paul, who i haven't seen in close to 15 years:
"Hey man what's going on ? How ya been doing ?
I actually lucked out and got a part in a pretty well established metal band called Absu as the new singer/bassist. Well I do most of the vocals the drummer does some. Anyways I feel pretty lucky and humbled.
But to get to the point were going to be up in Canada this summer and I would be totally stoked beyond belief if any of you and your friends want to pop in to the gigs. I can put as many people on the guest list as you want and I know their will be tons of free booze. Maybe you can tell your brothers to if they are around ? I understand if you guy's can't make it it's a long way off and I know how life is but just thought I would shoot the invite because it would be pretty cool . Bring the ear plugs !
Here's the dates and venues ...

Jun 13 2009 8:00P The Exchange Regina, Saskatchewan

And I think the silver paint thing is hilarious. The drummer has been doing it for a while now and I had to do it up for the promo shots. I told him about how the only other time I have seen it done was my cousin hahah. Funny cooincidences.
Later man hope you have a good birthday, a kick ass year, and that shit is going well !
i'm going to go to the gig, despite my fears, it'll be good to see the cuz doing his thing. check the vid:
