A small triumph – October 26th 2009 I started our Youtube page and I was excited to find out we now have 102 subscribers!  To celebrate, we are going to get together next Friday and will be making a video as a way of saying thank you for all your support.

It was a nice way to start 2012.

As for new Budian music, well, it seems to be on hold.  Yes, a hold on a break.  Lol. There are new songs that I have already started recording but Josh needs to add drums.  In the mean time I’ve been playing around with my cubase program and keyboard so I decided while I’m waiting on Josh,  I’d  start a new side project where I can let all of my crazy experimental  ideas turn into crazy experimental songs.  Lol.  So I initially wanted to name it Laserwolf.  Ever since I saw Fiddler on the Roof, I loved that name and never forgot it.  Unfortunately, the name was taken by another band. Booo.  So I played around with other names for the project and came up with Dandewolf.  It’s girly enough and I got to keep half of my original name.  I released my first song yesterday.

Take a listen here: Branded

My niece asks me all week “What day is today?”  In other words, is it fun Friday?

Recently, I’ve been trying to get our band stuff organized but because I tend to work on it whenever I have a chance, I decided to try posting everything on Friday.   So this Friday and hopefully from here on out, I’m hoping to post either a video or song.  So grab a cup a joe and check back every fun Friday for an extra little yay time.  Let’s see how long this lasts!

An interesting week…

I was captivated by a cheeto shaped mustache

and just when I thought things couldn’t get any more interesting, Josh got a call from Scott, our bassist, asking if Josh could help him out cause he was stranded with a busted tire.  Poor Scott had run over the back of a car seat on the high way!  Unfortunately Josh was in the middle of solving his own car problems so I said I’ll save you Scott!  I put on my cape and house shoes, grabbed my bike pump and drove over to inspect the damage.  Scott laughed when he saw my tiny hand held air pump and so we grabbed his at his house and began filling the tire.  Sigh.  It didn’t work.  To make a long story short, we ended up having to borrow a spare and after a long and tiring effort, (neither of us had much experience changing a tire) he was able to get it to Discount Tire.  Whew!

As far as music stuff goes, we have a new cover we will be releasing on our new channel hopefully by this weekend.  I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with his wailing/meedley me skills.   It’s also got jazzy violins and raw vocals.  Keep an eye out for it this week on my new channel www.youtube.com/janienerawrs

I was also honored to record Hailey on guitar and vocals singing one of my faves which I hope to be releasing soon too!

At the end of the day, I decided to just go ahead and join a hair band.

Brainstorms are brewing in my head.

This week I completed another song.  It took me by suprise how fast I got it done.  So I’m taking advantage of this down pour and working up my next song.  I wrote all my songs out and cut out 7 from my list of 19 songs.  I didn’t realize I had that many sitting on the back burner but there they were.  Which leads me to my next question.  What will I name this next album?

Anyhoo, Alex is still rocking out with side projects and is excited as he embarks on his new job.  Josh just cut a couple of trees down in our front and back yard.  Scott, he seems pretty busy with Texas is Funny stuff.  Have you checked out his label?  Go take a listen and give em a thumbs up.  So we’re all pretty busy but I’m hoping we can get together and fit another little jammy jam session soon.  We’ll see.

Been getting this song stuck in my head.  Argh…

A walk down memory lane

Those were the days….

This first picture was taken at our first show back in 09′ I believe.  We performed in the Best Buy music center and invited all of our friends and family.  I forgot my guitar used to be red and that Josh used to play it in a few songs.  Lol.

Here are a few random ones from the past couple of years.

Ooy Coo Cooy.  This place  below was called Super happy fun land but it wasn’t really that fun.  It scared me!  This was like an old warehouse that had a big stage in front with old theater seats.  It reeked of smoke and when you walked in there were tons of scary dolls looking at you and a spaced out girl playing the Euk.  Weird.

Another Best Buy show… “You don’t know what you’re made OF!!!!” (During Break it down)

So we did a few shows and took some “yeah we’re cool” band pictures.

and then some not so cool ones too…

And don’t forget that crazy winter tour we took!  I still can’t believe we drove and parked in New York with our huge van and trailer!  That was insane!  Oh and I’ll never forget the night Josh and Scott left thier debit cards in Milwauke and had to drive all the way back and missed the fun in Chicago.  What a crazy time we had.

We’ve played some good shows, met some amazing supportive people, had some good laughs, annoyed the heck outa each other during hours of painstaking practice sessions,  but most of all made music and we were so glad you could join us for the ride.  Keep checking back all week for new daily blogs (and some never before seen footage) as we count down the days for our next big musical release!  We can hardly wait!!!!! WOOHOO!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens?  Um, maybe if I’m doing a puzzle at my grandma’s house.

Brown copper kettles and warm woolen mittens?  Hmm, maybe if I live in the Ingalls house.

But brown paper packages tied up with string? Yes, I’ll take one of those.  Thank you.

This is one of our favorite things.  This week we recieved a package in the mail from a very awesome fan.  In it was his guitar with the request of our John Hancocks.  (Which by the way, he has been known for his large and stylish signature on the United States Declaration of Independence, so much so that the term “John Hancock” has become, in the United States, a synonym for signature. )

Anyways,  we were pretty smitten like whiskers on a kitten!  So much so that it motivated me to get back on the horse and finish out my ride.  Sorry, getting a little caught up in the whole Prairie scene.  Hmm, that sounds like it could be a new trend.  Bonnets…I’ll have to look into it.  (Ugh, I get off topic sooo easily.)  So we are getting together this weekend to rekindle some Budian magic.  So with that said, we would like to thank Kenny Ortiz for being such an awesome fan and for giving us a reason to get back together and get things rolling again.   Check him out:  http://www.youtube.com/kanistas/#p/a/u/1/QgVY3YlG1UY

This was just about the only video I found about a bonnet on youtube…

Let’s bring em back!

(Btw, Josh and I are working on the mix down for our music video.  Can’t wait!)
