3:54 pm - cd's for sale for cheap!!!
ok... were still short the same amount on money... however i have cdr's leftover and would be glad to burn off some of any of the music ive recorded over the years.... i was thinking pay a sliding scale of $5 - $10 for either an audio cd with up to 12 tracks or $10 - %15 for an mp3 cd with everything i have which is like... i think there were somewhere around 20 some lift and godtrip songs and somewhere around 30 total escape from saturn songs when including b-sides as well as the acoustic stuff im working on... and i have some other hidden treasures that i have never put anywhere as well... so something like 50 - 60 songs... ill look later and see how many there are all together... anyhow... if you want one or the other just email me at robertshanewilson@yahoo.com with your shipping address, what you want, and how much you want to pay and do the paypal donate thingy online here... or if you dont have a debit or credit card let me know and ill see what we can figure out... anyhow... i would much rather offer something for money than nothing...

9:10 pm - Well this is about ridiculous... but at this point I don't know what else to do...
basically here's the deal... we are short on rent... by about a hundred and fifty dollars... bla ...it's due on tuesday... and we have no way to come up with it by then... so im putting up link to donate to our paypall account... man is this low... i feel really dumb doing this but i figure it's worth a try if someone might be willing to help us out... anyhow... here it is:






if you want to donate it would be very appreciated... and we would be glad to pay anyone who donates back in a couple of months when tax time comes and we can afford extra money to give out... however right now is not that time for us by far... for anyone who donates... thanx and sorry for asking... and for anyone who doesnt sorry for taking up your friends page sincerely... anyhow... thats it for this post... I'm out... bla

1:56 am - who likes to read??
I've started writing something... its sort of an unfinished outline at this point.. its along the lines of a horror/drama kind of thing... tho so far its mostly drama i guess.. i'm wanting some people to read what i have so far and tell me what they think... so anyone interested reply or email me or something and i'll send it to you to check out and laugh at me...

on a more horrible note i got a paper about my license reinstatement... i can do it on the 13th right after i pay the $375 fine and get insurance again!!!! so ya... now i get to wait until we get our tax check i guess... oh well.. another month wont kill me.. bah.

10:55 am - Just like little bees in a hive, we always need a Queen to survive...
well so much for my updating streak, huh?
umm.. lets see here.. the day before christmas eve Elexus got a fever..
then the next day... christmas eve, she seemed to be doing about the same that morning. i gave her some medicine to keep it down... at 9am then around 1:00 pm i gave her her alternate medicine cuz her fever was 102 and about 15 minutes later she started shivering.. i took her temperature and it was 104 something.. that scared me half to death.. put her in a lukewarm bath to try and bring it down and that only made it worse... her fever got up to 105.5!!! i wont explain all the events leading up to it but we took her to the hospital. after awhile the doctor finally came and looked at her... they gave her a bunch of ibuprofen and took some blood and a urine sample... everything came back normal... its just a virus... but ill tell you its one nasty virus... she still has it... ive been having to give her 2-3 teaspoons of ibuprofen every 6 hours and alternate with tylenol in between... meaning i have to give her medicine every 3 hours... just to keep her fever down... its getting better but shes still got a couple of days to go i think.. so then i guess i'll move on to other things.. christmas day started out horribly... me and jen got into it over something i still dont understand becoming such an argument.. the kids opened their presents (elexus had to while mostly laying down on the couch of course)things seemed to get better throughout the day... mostly. the next day we went to jens grandmothers to have christmas with her family who aside from her grandmother had to come up from nashville where they were visiting her brother on christmas day.. they left nashville kind of late and got there late because of which... so it made for a long day... the kids had a killing tho and now i have to figure out what to throw out to make room for the new stuff... bah.. there isnt much else to mention of the last week without being bitter and depressing... so ill just end there.. im out.

12:17 pm - random thought for the day..
i want to get a job as a cartoon vilain side kick... i got to thinking about it... and they seem to have the best job security... no matter how stupid they are...or how much they screw up... hehe... just take teenage mutant ninja turtles for example... bebop and rocksteady were retarded... and they screwed up all the time... but there never was an episode where they got a pink slip or where shredder and krang took applications for possible replacements... they just kept the same morons... now thats some job security!

9:17 am - waiting is what i do... living life without you.
I havent said much about this I don't think. But one of the many things I have in my musical schedule for the next however long is recording Daniels "Acoustic" project, called Project the Last (as in you project something not like a project..). He's came over the last 2 fridays and done some acoustic guitar tracks and 1 scratch vocal track. Anyhow my main reason for mentioning this now is that in working with him this last couple of weeks i see that he has become a very powerful song writer and singer.. now i knew this a year ago sort of... but not the full weight of it.. I'll just say it this way.. It's rarely that one solitaire local musician inspires me, and Daniel has done just that with what I've heard so far..

other news: I have an old unfinished song done now... well done writing wise... i did some vocal tracks yesterday but im not completely satisfied with them..its kind of like one of my older songs from back in the day LONG AND DEPRESSING.. how fun... its about past events long gone but still regretted.. hence its called Regret.. it goes something like this:

cold, lingering air and darkness fill this room
yet shadows cast above my bed..
showing me there must be light somewhere..

i cannot apologize enough to make it better..
but somehow i know now it never really ends..

so far away
gleaming
and shiny
something makes sense

tell myself
nothings wrong
play with fire
when ive already burned..enough

the pressure is rising
now where's the horizon?
im spinning and diving
and destined to not eject.

so far away
im squinting
its so tiny
whatever makes sense

current mood: very sleep

12:45 am - im updating a lot lately... i must be catching a bug or something..
well, ive been talking to a lot of musicians in the last few days... im talking to the remnants of a band right now thats sounding really promising... and at the same time to some other people and/or bands that do not sound so promising.. some of the replies you get from indianapolismusic.net can be scary.. anyhow... things seem to be moving in an upward direction as far as getting something together sometime in the somewhat near future... me and jen watched the stepford wives the other day... it was pretty good... decently funny.. i spent the first half of last night fixing my moms computer... and the rest of the night re-recording a song idea ive had for a little bit now.. and today i even went so far as to write almost all of the lyrics for it... its been a long time since i wrote some lyrics... ive been missing out... ive been writing so much music since weve been here in gc and for the longest time i was really insecure about doing vocal tracks with us living in a double and the neighbors being so close... but for the last month or so now ive seemed to get over that... so its time to start singing some more and writing lyrics and stuff... if this is completley boring and monotonous pay no mind... im boring... always have been always will be... oh well... im out... im so boring im boring myself now... hehe

current mood: sleepy thanx to yesterday

10:44 pm - spil sucks!
ok after the spil tryout i was told they were going to send me a tape to write lyrics to and all that good jazz.. so i figured by my estimation based on when they were going to record it and send it out i should have gotten it at the latest today... so yesterday i emailed them to see if they sent it and what was up... and today i got an email from dave saying i wouldnt work out and all that... right on... thats kewl i replied with thats kewl i hope you guys find the right guy... yay ra... well then i get to talking to daniel... and i find out that they told him friday night that i wasnt in... cuz they wanted him to try out... so im wondering... why was i waiting on a tape that wasnt coming... thats just plain not cool... they waited at least 4 days before they finally emailed me... nice... oh well... back to the drawing board or whatever... stupid bands and their shadiness... bah... im out.

11:34 am - the last few days..
is it just me or am i actually updating this thing more than once a year now? anyhow.. that said... i figured i would post about my last week or whatever... starting with thanksgiving day... typing thanksgiving just made me hungry... hold up .. im gonna get a bowl of cereal first... brb.. mmm magic marshmallows (cheap lucky charms) ... umm anyway... lets see here... thanxgivin day.. went to my brothers early in the day.. (well as early as we could get up) and hung out there.. had some awesome food... it was good stuff... my sister got elexus wanting to go to her house for the weekend and kept giving me a guilt trip about letting her and then eventually her and jacob stay the weekend... which was fine with me... then we went to jens grandmothers to meet her and jens parents for thanxgivin part 2... foodwise it wasnt so good... jens grandmother had a doctors appointment... that morning yes A DOCTORS APPOINTMENT ON THANKSGIVING DAY!! and so because of which she wasnt able to make tg dinner and jens dad got a krogers special pre-prepared thanksgiving dinner... some of it was ok... the rest of it was horrible... then on the way home i call my sister to see if the kids are going to be allowed to stay at my brothers since theyre supposed to stay with her for the weekend and shes staying there overnight.. come to find out the kids cant stay with her for the weekend for reasons that are not for me to explain... so that was dumb..anyhow.. thats thanxgivin in a nutshell... then came friday.. friday morning i wont comment on... friday evening daniel came out to start working on recording his acoustic stuff.. it was good times... brought his woman as well... i had a toffee cigarette... then after that daniel took me to plums... and me and plum sat around while i laughed at him for buying an agp video card for his computer that has no agp slot... and for his wireless dsl that kept disconnecting... then we went to the alley cat (kat maybe? a bar in broadripple). and as soon as we get in the door this weird girl is like "plum, yay... its plum" and hugging him and looking really drunk... and in my head im like "well that didnt take long.." and then come to find out it was tristan... haha... trisquitte as i used to call her... she looked completely different... its like she tried to make herself look smart... which is just futile considering she still has the intelligence of a toaster oven...anyhow.. so thats when the night became extremely annoying... so we walked around or should i say shoved our way around with her and plum kept trying to talk me into going and getting me and him a beer if he paid... but see... ive been there before... and i know very well that one beer isnt worth trying to get drinks at this bar... so we went on with no drinks... anyhow then we ended up outside and some guy threw up on the corner... and dropped his cigarette in his vomit while throwing up... and one of his drunk friends picked it up and started smoking it... buh... it was horrible... then after waiting for trisquitte to finish saying goodbye to 14 different guys we were finally on our way... trisquitte added to our number (yay).. so during the chaos we get it settled to meet dustin and josh at dennys... and on the way there i really learn just how much trisquitte hasnt changed... she proceeds to get ahold of the cd case and go through and listen to partial songs and then right when they get to the point where i dont mind listening to them cuz its too late now... she switches to another song or cd... all the while talking to plum about herself... AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE... ok everyone knows someone who does nothing but talk about themselves... well take that person you know and multiply their self consistent jabber by 10 and it still doesnt compete with trisquitte... example: at one point plum tries to talk to me about something other than trisquitte by saying "hey bob you remember my birthday?" and i was like "ya i do i...." and then trisquitte breaks in with "i bla bla bla... me bla bla bla"... so i spent the rest of the trip to dennys staring out the window... bah... so then we get to dennys and with 4 other people it would seem that she would be almost forced to talk about other things... yet still she managed to keep up her constant bla bla bla... so ya... talked to josh and dustin... and endured trisquitte.. and talked to plum... then the moment of truth came and it was time for plum to take me home and i realized something that i hadnt thought of... she was going with us... on the HOUR LONG TRIP TO TAKE ME HOME... bah... i lived tho... then saturday was ok until saturday night... once again no comment... and then yesterday started off somewhat the same as saturday night... still no comment... and then later it wasnt that bad... anyhow... that was my thanxgivin weekend... i have to pee now so im out..

current mood: bladder full..no time for mood

11:25 pm - good stuff..
well the try out went pretty good i think... their new stuff is really up my alley... a lot different than the older stuff.. i guess they have 4 other singers to try out... so ya... im really interested in doing this now moreso than i already was... but im not getting my hopes up tho it seemed to go well and they said so far i had a leg up on everyone else.. im still just as paranoid as always and dont want to set myself up for a let down... anyhow.. thats my update on that... im ready to pass out now... nite lj people who actually read this... im out

current mood: tired

10:53 am - i forgot to mention this before...
on the way to nashville we heard this song on the radio... and i realized while were listening to it that it clearly sums up the Bush administration..

Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction


You take a mortal man,
And put him in control
Watch him become a god,
Watch peoples heads roll

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the Symphony...
Of Destruction

Acting like a robot,
Its metal brain corrodes.
You try to take its pulse,
Before the head explodes.

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the Symphony...
Of Destruction

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
Warring for the heavens,
A peaceful man stands tall

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the Symphony...
Of Destruction

5:26 pm - i guess an update is in order..
well... to begin with ill start with saturday... saturday i got an email from dave from spil saying that they had messed up... see they practice at the emerson theater... which is where they were planning on holding the audition... however they missed the fact that there was a national show scheduled yesterday at the emerson... so my tryout has been moved to tomorrow night.. so... theres that... jens parents came out to indiana from kansas saturday night as well.. and they were actually going to watch the kids at jens grandmothers while we went to the emerson... so since that wasnt happening we decided to see if they would still watch the kids so we could go out... so they did... and we decided to go to the dollar movie theater in greenwood... cuz were broke of course... so we go there and pick out what movie were going to watch (more like jen picked it out :p not that there was much choice anyway) and we got our tickets... and the movie didnt start for a about an hour and a half i believe... so we went out to eat...and we ended up going to ryans... and once we were in the parking lot... all the sudden the car started acting really wobbly... which i had been saying to jen already that the allignment needed fixed... and it seemed to me like it was just getting worse... so we didnt think much of it... and went in to eat... managed to actually keep myself from eating way too much... as opposed to the too much i did eat... so we went to leave there... and started driving and the car was like 10 times worse... so i told jen to go ahead and stop before we get out of there... in case we had a flat tire... sure enough... we had a flat tire... so then i got to dig out the spare donut and jack from under all the junk we have in our trunk... and then change the tire... i gashed my stupid hand open on the stupid jank jack that came with the car... it has this metal lip on the end for popping off the hubcap... not a bright place to put it considering once i got to a lugnut that didnt want to come off as easy as the others i had to put some force into it and my hand slipped off and sliced on the lip thingy... bah.. so then we get it on there... and go to the theater... and ended up getting our money back for our tickets cuz we already missed 20 - 30 minutes of it anyway... so our night out was cut in half... bah... so we went back and... considering by this time it was too late to go get the tire fixed and the donut probably wouldnt last long it was decided that we would borrow her grandmothers car until tuesday.. while her dad got the tire fixed... so i go to put the car seat in her grandmothers car... i open the door and go to hit the electric locks to unlock the back door... and nothing... then i notice theres also no dome light on... so i try the key and nothing... the battery was dead... so then we get the jumper cables out of our car and me and jens dad go to jump the car... and well that was sort of a disaster... i wont say all the details but her dads stubborn and im stubborn... and i have to hold my tongue... so ya.. we put the jumper cables on... he holds the gas pedal in to "give it a high rpm" and gives it maybe 10 minutes... and then he called triple a... maybe im weird... but i would never call triple a to jump a car... no matter how dead a battery is... unless im stranded and no one will give me a jump... but we werent we had like 4 other vehicles that we could have used to jump start this thing... anyhow... the triple a guy comes and they roll the car out of the garage so they can get to it better and jump start it in like 5 minutes... mainly cuz they actually revved the gas pedal and didnt hold it down... but i wont go into that anymore... anyhow... so then finally at like almost midnight we were on our way back home from martinsville... yesterday was a long day..

current mood: energetic

7:40 am - this just in...
ok... i've been neglecting to update since we got back from nashville.. why did we go to nashville you say? well... we went to see the new band the ex singer from shun was in called Sans Seraph. http://www.myspace.com/sansseraph jens brother lives in nashville so luckily his wife agreed to watch our pesky kids (just kidding about them being pesky) for us. so we could go to the show. and then after that we stayed the night there... well... thanx to stupid venues... and trust me ive had plenty of experience with stupid venues... the band was made to play 40 minutes early..and we got lost on the way there so we missed a little bit of their set..oh well tho... cuz what we made it for was still wonderful..we got to hear i believe 3 or 4 new songs.. and atropos. one of the new songs billy played piano and sang elton john style (not musical style just physical at the piano mic overhead style... ) so anyhow..this song was awesome..after seeing this show.. i see that compared to shun this band is of course different... but seemingly equal in a different way... they really are interesting.. anyhow... after that there were 3 other bands... 2 of which were any good... the headliner however... was not to my taste... and during i think the second band billy recognized me and got my attention to give me a demo cd which i refused considering we already had gotten our hands on 2 copies each.. so then i talked to billy for a few... but considering its been 2 years since i talked to him i didnt really have much to say i felt kinda dumb so ya... the convo did one of those trail offs.. anyone who goes to shows most likely knows what i mean by that.. so then after the show we went and stayed the night at jens brothers.. and the next morning since he is a manager at a theater.. he got us and the kids in free to see the polar express... this was both of the kids first time in a theater... theyve been to the drive in... but ya... not the theater... and it went really well... surprisingly enough the movie was exciting enough to keep jacobs attention from running about the theater mad with glee..it was an alright movie... could have done with a little less tom hanks... considering he plays every character that isnt a little kid or female... but the kids enjoyed it... and thats what really matters... so after that we began the long trek home... well here's some interesting news... i guess i really am trying out for spil now... this sunday... theyve kicked their singer out for sure... i would be iffy about trying to try out a second time if it werent that i know whats been going on with the whole deal and i understand their situation... dudes been in the band for like 6 years or so... so ya... its hard to kick someone out with that much history.. well... thats my update for now... oh ya... plum if you read this im sure you can guess that i have a copy of sans seraph's demo for you... also... we have another copy if anyone else is interested... not to mention i can burn copies of course as well... :) anyway on that note im out..

current mood: optimistic

2:21 pm - events of the last however long its been since i updated...
got an email from dave from spil... cancelling the "audition" because theyre gonna try and work things out with their current singer...

went to dentoween and then plums party.... that was rather interesting...considering chops and emily, 2 old friends that had just recently moved temporarily back to indiana..., happened to end up in all the places in indianapolis right next door to plums... they were visiting emily's sister who was housesitting the house next door to plums... its a small, small world...

me and gene are talking about starting a band now...

Me and Jen voted tuesday... and are absolutely frustrated with the results of the presidential part of it... oh well tho... at least this time it was fair and square i guess...

there are plenty of things i would like to say and comment about things i heard/read on here and in many other places about the election, how it turned out, people who didnt vote, their confusing reasons why, and how some people think that other peoples opinions make more sense than the constitution when it comes to whether they should vote or not... and whether bush is or isn't "God's president"... but i wont. simply because it would all be too exhausting and aggrivating when everyone with different beliefs started arguing and i started arguing back and bla bla bla... and lately im trying to go for a low stress level... so ya... thats it... im out...

next update coming in spring :p

5:47 pm - and again...
well i've been putting off this post for long enough... Mom went into the hospital a couple of weeks ago because she was having trouble breathing. Basically she had water on her lungs. And the water on her lungs was caused by her heart failure. For those of you who didn't know me february of last year... or didn't have me on your friends list then... I should probably explain that at that time my mom started having what are called silent heart attacks... and was told by her doctor that she would continue to have them repeatedly until they finally killed her... which they estimated would happen within two months of that time... this was hard news for me and my brother and sister... and all of our families of course as well... but we dealt with it... and mom proved them wrong... and shes been doing mostly great but had her ups and downs as well... well anyhow... I knew she had been real tired at least a week prior to going to the hospital... but she has spells like that everyonce in a while... and mom is an ace at convincing people that she is ok and that there is nothing to worry about... well anyhow... her heart failure needless to say has gotten worse... her heart is now only going at 20%. her doctor said that hes seen people with like 15% or so live for like 5 or 6 months... but that with all the stress that her body has to go through hes estimating she has about a month or 2.. now ive been through this before of course... so of course the first thing that comes to mine and everyone elses mind is that shes proved them wrong once... she can do it again: well I hope thats the case... but all the signs are showing that too be less likely this time around... anyhow... i just thought i should update... otherwise the kids are doing good, im here and doing ok most of the time... jens doing ok,... weve been having some arguments lately but hopefully thats out of the way now... and thanx to this news and my own weakness ive been smoking again... a very little bit... but still smoking nonetheless... those of you who read this and do pray please pray for my mom and family... thanx... anyhow... other news is im trying to get in a band... i need to get out of this house... with everything going on right now i need music more than ever... me and j are working on some stuff together... were even going over some lift songs were going to re-record... but im not going to get into that right now... if you dont pray... then you should anyway for my mom because she rules!! anyhow... im out...

current mood: a little stressed.
