Status - 5/11

- All mail-order is up-to-date. Paid orders received through Sunday have been sent. New orders will be mailed by end of the day, today

- The Fecalove 7-inch covers have been printed and are due to arrive this week. The vinyl master is off to the pressing plant and if everything goes as scheduled, the records should be ready within four weeks

- The Fortieth Day is settling back into a nice practice and recording schedule at the Plague Bringer/A.o.H. space. We had a fruitful session last night, barring some frustration with an uncooperative Turbo Rat pedal

- Recommended viewing: Mammoth, by Lucas Moodysson. Not as "obvious" as "Lilya 4-Ever" and more expansive than "A Hole in My Heart." At times, it feels close to the films of Alejandro González Iñárritu, and not just because of Gael García Bernal being in it. It left me feeling pretty cold. Good cold...
