    So, we've been debating about getting back on the live show scene, and we thought this might be a fun question.

    Do you think you would like to see us live in the absence of a drummer?

    Not just the absence of a drummer, but the absence of amps, as we will be going direct with PODs. Perhaps we need not only monkeys, but midgets! Think of all the creative things we can do with staging!

    Perhaps a programmed monkey simulator? I might be interested in programming that if someone else will handle the CGI. Har-har-dee-fucking-har.

    Oh, and if you do go the programmed route live... randomize the MIDI somewhat. Little velocity variations, and wiggle a few sections around here and there. I've fooled a good number of people with a clip - actually had some people say 'cool drums, but you need to get the drummer to tighten it up a bit' and other suchlike.

    BUMP TIEM!

    I'm bored, come play San Antonio.

    Now.

    Either that or I need to find something else to do, like buying pants, or maybe my homework...
