Well, things are happening at a fast and furious pace for Discount Romance. Mixes are flying back and forth from Minnesota to Los Angeles. Vocals are being recorded with Barry Fasman at his Sanctuary Studios.
Rehearsals for our next trip to Mysterious Mammal Studios are on-going and we’re about to venture into the enigmatic layer of Kent to do some lead guitar tracks with Dong.
We even managed to work on Everyone’s a Cowboy last night. Tempers got a little on the toasty side. Strong opinions were expressed but remarkably, there were no deaths.
Dong’s lovely and talented girlfriend showed up again and skillfully sliced fruit on his Android while we blew out her ear drums.
Discount Romanced dined on Robbie Macs Pizza. Endorsement deals are always welcome. I’m just saying….
And Dan is going on vacation for two weeks. We shall miss his tattered baseball hat and his big beer drinking head.
The ever-busy Jason is booked all week, so we’re not getting together for rehearsal again until next Monday.
Just in case there are any ad executives out there, this is how well Dong drinks Coca-Cola. This has got to be worth a few bucks, right?
A picture of our adorable singer.
Nighttime Song - This tune seems to get better and better, every time Carissa sings it. It’s destined to be a classic, just from her performance alone.
And now….More captioned pictures!!!
As a memory aid, when Kent hits a wrong chord, he Tazers his own testicles. Of course when he hits the right chord, he also Tazers his own testicles.
In the early days of the band, we had everyone audition to see who would be Carissa. Juan missed getting the job by that much…..
“I’m not saying I’m gay, I’m just saying you look really, really attractive in those headphones.”
Dong can’t really decide whether his left leg is super stiff from the motorcycle accident or from staring at Carissa’s boobs.
It’s adorable looks like this that make Jason the official “Little Moppet” of the band.
Note to powerful ad execs: We even have high quality stills of Dong enjoying the cool, refreshing taste of a sparkling Coca-Cola. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Just in case Carissa comes to her senses and quits the band, we keep a blond chick handy at all times.
Interesting Discount Romance fact: Jason’s Harry Potter wand is mahogany with a core of Dragon lips.
Even while singing a tender ballad, Carissa has to keep a mighty fist at the ready to repel any sudden lunges at her by Kent.
Juan just can’t decide which Jonas Brother he looks most like.
“I don’t like the camera being thrust in my face, but at least he isn’t taking another picture of my ass.”
Another picture of Carissa’s ass.
After 17 wet ones, Jason is a small blond wig away from taking this little honey home for the night.
On second thought, “Let’s get the party STARTED!”
After two of his own homemade brownies, Dan mistakes his guitar for a 17 pound large-mouth bass.
When on tour, the rest of the band plan to tie a rope around Juan’s waist and throw him out into the hotel hallway. Then, when adoring groupies gather round, they’ll just reel him back into the room.
“Just a quick trip out to Dong’s car with this baby and I become the only guitarist in the band.”
Every time Carissa picks up a drink, there’s a possibility she’ll spill some on her top.
Somewhere in the world a cuddly red panda is being ripped to pieces by wolves.
There’s a point in a drinkin’ man’s evening when he gets the overpowering urge to punch some books.
Would you buy Mongolian Beef with Snow Peas from this man?
“Oh I get it now. All these red things and stuff. You’re the drummer!”
