We wrote and recorded a jingle-jam with Dum Dum Girls last night called "Merry Christmas, Baby (Please Don't Die)". Go here to listen or visit either band's myspace.
Oh, and a HUGE thank-you to Jon Greene for recording this for us. That guy has been more than generous with his time and equipment. Any of you in San Diego who know him or ever see him, give him a french kiss under the mistletoe this year!

One of the Great Lakes. After this we ate Thai food in a college cafeteria and then played in a mock Bavarian beer hall to a small crowd.
I don't remember why but for some reason Charles and I were both in awful moods this night. We hotboxed the van and sat in there sulking listening to sad Bo Diddley ballads. Marco saw us being a couple of sad-sacks and came into the van with a coffee and a funny hat and spoke in a funny voice and cheered us up. The best thing about Marco is his positivity. You can always count on him to be fun and in a good mood. The second best thing about him is how handsome he is, which definitely helped attendance at the shows.
Marco is embarassed about his toe-nails and wouldn't let me take a picture of them. I denied his request to put my camera away while his socks were off, so he spent most of the night shielding his feet with his hands. I have no room to laugh really, as my toenails are about 17 times more disgusting than Marco's.
After the Horrors/Crocs gig in San Diego, we had a party at my house. And by house, I mean studio apartment. We crammed about 20 people into the one little room I live in. And since we're scared of our neighbors complaining about noise, we let everyone smoke cigarettes in the house. I didn't notice the stench this created until the next day, when I left and came home to the realization that my house now smelt like someone had been smoking cigars through their asshole with all the windows closed.
