All Kinds of Crazy

Yes, I'm still alive...and yes, I'm still in a band! The last few weeks have been filled with the craziness that happens after a tornado hits your town. Most of my personal craziness (besides the normal crazy I enjoy) has been centered on long talks with insurance adjusters, trying to get what is needed to really fix our old home properly. I've received three checks so far (each adjuster seems to disagree with the one prior), and it looks as if I will receive two (if not three) more before all is said and done.

Meanwhile, we took band photos last weekend - and The Offspring did well on a moment's notice. Not to mention, it is difficult to get seven people to hold still for any period of time. Oh, wait, excuse me - it's even MORE difficult to get seven MUSICIANS to hold still for any period of time.
She took a ton of photos - and then quickly photoshopped a few. We tried looking serious, looking goofy, looking happy...just tons of photos.I loved the walking ones the best - we tried taking baby steps up the driveway while she snapped away.
We have a gig this Friday night, and then one the weekend following. Just local stuff - and hopefully we will entertain the crowd and have fun at the same time.
So, if you don't know already - which photo do you think we chose as the "official" photo for the band?

Walking is the best as it shows some of the individual personality of the members. The one behind the fence works for the album cover. No, wait, showing my age again. I miss album covers. Glad you're recovering.

Oh I think the last photo makes the lead singer look the best. I would have chosen it. I like the one behind the balcony too.

I like the walking one.
I need tickets to the next concert... (:

Well, I love the one where you are all walking - looks totally spontaneous and fun!

Rayne said...

The middle one where you are all walking is my favorite, too.

I like the walking one, too, but Roger looks like he's gonna bash someone over the head with his guitar! (Which, BTW, looks just like my Fender Strat!)

Why am I reminded of "The 5th Dimension"? :)

Spellbound - I still call them albums...just can't help it! And I like the walking one, too...just wish I had looked happier.

Junebug - I think she looks really good in that one, too - but I love the one where she looks like she is singing!

Pamela - You're in luck...September 12th, I believe! All new songs, too!

MommyWizdom - thanks! And hopefully will get the last insurance claim settled very soon. I'm going to do my level best to get back to Fun Monday - thanks for remembering me!

Karmyn R - it was, after we had about a hundred takes! Many of them were good, tho...

Rayne - now I'm wishing we had used that one!

Desert Songbird - LOL!! He sure does!! Maybe I was making him mad...I know it's not his expensive guitar - can't remember which one this is, tho!

Anonymous - Hmmm...I don't know?

Bond - I like the boys in their sunglasses.

BTW, the official photo is the one on the balcony!
