both myself and justin are now 'official' members of computer magic. computer magic is the brainchild of our old homie danz, i wrote about her a bunch back. i play guitar, he plays bass. we've been practicin' a bunch and i've begun work on an 'excrement'type mixtape.

in excrement news my laptop got lucky, just gotta compile 'gatherings #4: when kurt shot himself he shot dave too.' and figure out a cover. it should be up in around week.
