Work has begun on the new EP, Out of Sheerest Frustration, which will be released on Agriculture Records. I have no other details at the moment, but it will happen sooner rather than later.

Also, I've discovered an ancient scroll containing information on DIY screen printing. As a result, Lost on Purpose t-shirts now exist. I'll get some photos up soon, they're pretty cool.

Inactivity is stifling. I think I'm going to post a handful of demos within a week or so to clear my head. I've actually been writing a ton lately; I've got my hand in a few fires so I'm interested in seeing what develops.

Does anyone else use last.fm? It's another one of those music aggregators (like gnoosic), only it's very sophisticated. You actually download a plugin for winamp or media player or whatever you use, and it sends song info to the last.fm servers. Once you listen to enough music you get 'neighbors' who are into the same stuff as you and the program is able to make suggestions as to what else you might like. For all I know I'm the last person to know about this, so sorry if you wasted your time reading this paragraph.

My only New Year's resolution is to write more often in this news section.

Do yourself a favor and visit PaulMusgrave.com. Read. Enjoy.

I just stumbled across a super cool site called Gnoosic. It's one of those little programs you've heard about where you type in what you like (in this case, three bands) and it spits out names of bands you might like. The answers are all based on the bands that other people have inputed since the site's creation. It's a lot of fun to play around with. Of course, I would appreciate it if everyone would enter Lost on Purpose at least once, but I'm not gonna twist your arm.

Wow, it's almost been a month since my last post. What's happened since then...

I went home to Ohio for the holidays.

Not much else.

I had a good sports week while in Ohio: I saw the Cavs beat Chicago, then I watched them beat the (formerly) 24-3 Detriot Pistons on TV, the Browns beat arch-nemesis Baltimore (I'll ignore the previous week's beat down handed out by former arch-nemesis Pittsburgh), and Ohio State won big over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl (best game of the week). I know a lot of you music lovers care about sports. Really.

I've also mailed out a bunch of copies of the new CD to reviewers, radio stations, labels etc, so it will be a good 6 months before I hear anything from them.

I have a short soundtrack to work on for the time being (for a super top secret project), but without promising anything, I think there will be more music coming to the site in the next few months.
