NEW WORM QUARTET SONG ON THE FUMP NEWS
For your streaming and purchasing pleasure, my newest tune, a six-and-a-
half minute epic-length tune, is available at The FuMP! Features the
return of the lovely Curt Allen on guitar, dammit!

Check it out here: http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1296

"CIRQUE DU SO WHAT" ON THE FUMP NEWS
Cirque Du So What, my sketch project with the great Luke Ski, Devo Spice,
and Chris Mezzolesta, has put a couple more songs up on The FumP as well!

Check 'em out here: http://www.thefump.com/artist.php?id=40

You can order our debut CD here: http://www.cirquedusowhat.net
Or here: http://www.baconnipples.com

CHEAP SHIRTS NEWS
I've recently lowered the prices on all the shirts in the Worm Quartet store!
Go forth and buy, and keep your nipples covered in style! Head over to
http://www.wormquartet.com and click on "Buy Stuff" once you're done laughing
at how outdated and horrendous my stupid site looks!

NON-SKETCHED COMIC PROJECT NEWS
If you enjoy my sense of humor and wonder how it might apply to a webcomic
whose art is stolen from royalty-free clip art collections, then maybe you
should consider checking out PartiallyClips, dammit!

Rob Balder started this comic a gajillion years ago, and has recently decided
to hand the reigns over to ME so he can concentrate more fully on Erfworld!
I'm updating every Tuesday and Friday, and you can check it out over yonder at:
http://www.partiallyclips.com

THE DOCTOR IS OFF THE AIR BUT ONLINE NEWS
Sadness...after 40 years, the Dr. Demento show is no longer going to be
bringing glorious insanity to the airwaves. The good Dr. recently announced
on http://www.drdemento.com that the show's final on-air broadcast will be this
weekend. The show will, however, continue online - check the site for more
info on how to subscribe!

We here at Worm Quartet wish the Dr. the very best, and will of course continue
to support him and send him stupid music for as long as he continues to not
demand that I stop.

ODOR NEWS
I smell like Johnson & Johnson's "No More Tears" shampoo, which it turns out
works on both hair AND on the peach-fuzz scalp of a 5-year-old who decided to
take a pair of scissors to his own mane in the middle of the night.

That's it outta me for now - hope to see you guys in Ithaca and/or Orlando!
I'll be the long-haired freak screaming dumbass lyrics over cheesy synths!

I'm here to kick bubblegum and chew...wait...

The parenting continues

KIM:  You have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, okay?

STEVE: Do I need a shot?

KIM: No, it's just a checkup.

STEVE: Is she going to listen to my heart?

KIM: Yeah, she'll check you all out.

STEVE: Are they going to take me apart and put me back together?

KIM: No...no, they're not.

STEVE: Good.  I hate that.

Still more true tales of parenting

(Kim and I are still in bed...Steve woke up a bit earlier than us and has been playing.  He opens the door to our room and sticks his head in.)

OFFSPRING: Dad?

ME (mumbling): Yes, Steve?

OFFSPRING: My skin feels like rubber when I rub it on the floor.  Actually it doesn't feel like that at all.

ME: Close the door.  You're letting all the crazy in.

Biking with Steve and other stuff

Recently, bike riding with Steve has stopped being a leisurely ride and turned into a serious workout.  The kid is FAST.  His training wheels are clearly a security blanket rather than a necessity at this point, as they never touch the ground unless he's stopped, and keeping up with him gets my heart rate up to a serious degree.  So we zoom around the neighborhood, him waving at everybody he sees and me blasting the Descendents through a little handlebar-mounted speaker set I bought on clearance for like $7 which holds my Zen (incidentally, this is a logical progression from the system I made as a kid - I tied two small speakers to the handlebars with wires running to a handlebar-mounted bag I kept my walkman in.  Whatta ya want, I had a goofy-looking bike, and after seeing "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" I modded it every way I could.  Plus, I lived in the middle of nowhere, so any bike ride to get me anywhere interesting was LONG, and music was GOOD!)

Of course, I have to pay close attention, because when Steve's slammed on the brakes to look over a bridge or pick up some acorns or save a worm, I've come very close to plowing right into him (which is not an issue with the elliptical trainer machines at the Y, as they don't care about worms.)  But my god...if this keeps up we'll be biking the canal trail by the summer.  

In other news, I replaced a defective hold switch on an iPod tonight.  Nerd cred once again defended.

And speaking of nerd cred, Worm Quartet has been invited to this year's Nerdapalooza in/near Orlando!  YAAAAY!
