Session Start: Tue Jul 29 16:27:00 2003

micah
i had an idea

annie
yes?

micah
for our site bio, instead of having someone write one, let's just interview each other over IM and post it

annie
ok, when do we do that?

annie
oh wait, did it already start?

micah
do you want to make up questions beforehand or just wing it?

annie
i think we should do it now

micah
i guess we could

annie
because if you think about it too hard nothings going to be cool

micah
right, it'll ruin it... we can take out the boring parts

annie
yeah, ill edit it

annie
ok so, bio's...does anyone care?

annie
theres ants crawling around and when i put my hand on the mouse they crawl in between my fingers and bite me

micah
this isn't an interview

annie
ok, here it is

micah
we have to ask each other questions

annie
oh, micah, can i borrow some money?

micah
no, next question

annie
you start, i suck at this

micah
okay, so annie, where are you from?

annie
i don't want anyone to know that

micah
that question sucks

annie
yeah, i'm from america and so are you

micah
good, now that we got that out of the way

annie
and we both play some instruments, you play all of them and i play some of them... and in our band you play two at once and i just play one and then i sing which is almost two at once

micah
this is sounding really dry

annie
shut up

annie
i'm totally interested

micah
okay, keep going

annie
ok, well, thats it

annie
what else do they want to know

annie
have you ever been in a band that anyone cared about?

micah
just this one, and i think you're the only one who cares

annie
you were in some band called radio 4 right

micah
yes there was radio 4

annie
but not the one that people know about

micah
we played around LA and OC for a few years

annie
right

micah
but things fell apart and another band snatched up the name

annie
i played a couple shows in orange county but everyone who was there has probably overdosed on heroin by now

micah
that's orange county for you

micah
with what band?

annie
i played keyboards in some punk band called shrinkwrap or some shit

annie
and then i played solo but i didn't have a lot of songs

micah
is "or some shit" part of the band name or the sentence?

annie
sentence

micah
right, then you met me?

annie
right, then we met because you used to sleep with my mom when you worked together

annie
i'm trying to spice things up

micah
actually you got that backwards, i use to work with her when we slept together

micah
whatever same difference

annie
yeah

annie
and then i made you record lots of songs with m

annie
e

annie
me

annie
fuck

micah
it's okay we can fix it later

micah
we'll just punch in and you can retype it

annie
ok

annie
it all started with that sweet ass cover of "who's crying now" by journey

micah
i remember it well, that was almost a year ago today

annie
then we did what no one should ever do and recorded "god only knows" by the beach boys

micah
which almost killed me

annie
and it was good

annie
why'd that almost kill you

micah
we did it in like 2 days, something like 26 tracks

annie
yeah, and we got really drunk

micah
of course

micah
you have to be drunk to think you can cover a song off pet sounds

annie
totally

annie
then months and months later, after i was tired of trying to be in bands with girls and other people who sucked

micah
nine months later giant drag was born

micah
good thing you didn't get that band abortion

annie
no kidding

annie
you know how i love abortions

micah
i'm always dragging you away from the clinic

annie
and i'm like "just one more!"

annie
anyway, then we rounded up 7 songs and played our first show at the scene in glendale

annie
everything sounded shitty there

micah
you just booked it and told me about it after the fact, "either you're playing with me or i'm going to play it myself" and i wasn't about to let you go out like that

annie
because i knew we wouldn't practice hard enough if i didn't book a show

micah
sneaky shit

annie
i had to get this shit going

annie
and i did

micah
there's also the story of the bassist that never was

micah
we originally planned to get more people to play with us

annie
oh yeah, but its a lot easier to only have two people in the band

micah
and more money for us

annie
totally

micah
so then we played the troubadour which fuckin' rocked

annie
yeah, because they kind of know how to do sound there

micah
recorded some more songs

annie
in one night... and one take for me i might add

micah
you did 3 tracks all one takers if i remember correctly

micah
and then we set up this website... is that bio enough?

annie
i guess

micah
do you have anything else you'd like to confess?

annie
yes, * ** ******** gay *** *** ** **** **** * 12 year old

micah
yeah, did you **** **** ***?

micah
*** ****** ***** **, ****** *** ******* *** younger!

annie
** ** ******

micah
we're going to have to seriously edit this

annie
that part better not go on the website

micah
of course not

micah
should we wrap up?

annie
yes

annie
and in conclusion bio's suck

micah
thank you everyone, and if you got this far you have problems

annie
yeah mom!

micah
we talked about your mom way too much

micah
i think you have issues

annie
i know, there's this picture of her next to the computer

annie
i think i'm going to be sick
