New guitarist makes the band whole again!

Well, it finally happened. After about a year and 1/2 search, LIPSHOK found a fantastic guitarist by the name of Scott Bullerwell. OMG. He fits this band like a glove and we finally have the sound we have been after for years and that certainly goes with the newest CD that Glen Avelais did all the guitar work on. Scott fills up the guitar parts and now we even sound like the CD. A-maz-ing. If you haven't been to a Lipshok show for a while, you are missing out on our new sound, new music, and with our new guitarist. The best part is that there is going to be more to come as Scott writes and he can contribute so much. Plus he has the coolest 7 strings...

Anyways, I, Scarlett, your author, is obviously thrilled for this new journey.

To Haunt a Quiet Realm is out!

 My best music to date is there for all now. Of course, there's always more for the future, but I can only focus on so much at one time. I love how this CD is. Man, I really poured my heart and soul into these songs with like 6 - 8 tracks of vocals and many layered keyboard parts.... obviously live this can be difficult lol! But, everyone is backing track oriented now so there ha ha. If we could only find a competent guitarist to play live with I would feel so much for complete... you know, I don't know what's going on, but what did I do that no one of a guitar nature is interested? I mean, come on. We make it so easy. We have all the necessary equipment. You just have to show up and play. Well, the is an ability level needed of course....

Come on people! Where is a guitarist?

 OK. So apparently I have moved to another world and there are no guitar players there. Wow. What did I do? Have I done something that has offended everyone? We just keep getting burned and burned and burned. I mean, we have a fantastic guitarist for the CD and all, he just can't play live with us. Or he doesn't want to. And that's ok. Who would want to play with me anyway? I mean, I'm not going to attract anyone to shows so a guitarist knows that playing with me is probably a detriment to their image... I know, that sounds terrible but that's how I feel. Or maybe I am just fighting a losing battle.... well, I do believe in the music wholeheartedly though. I mean, I think it's really good and this new stuff is the best thing I've done so at least I'll have some good music to listen to on my ipod. But am I truly asking too much to get a guitar player?

 OK. Just in case there's any confusion, I am not upset about guitarists... other than Chris Olsen.... I am mad about the scene and the assholes in it. I am upset that I can't seem to get things together and progress and just do what I am compelled to do on the earth... sing and play songs. Why? 'Cause it's my spirit and my soul and every time something goes wrong it crushes it down and I have to build it back up again. Obviously I'm too sensitive. But aren't all artists sensitive? If they weren't, they couldn't do what they do. I take everything personally.... I guess I'll work on that till the day I die and then probably after that as well. Ashes fall.

Once again

It's amazing to me how many times I can get fucked over. Music is the worst and best path in the world but unfortunately you have to count on other people to make it happen.... some you can count on and some you can't, and not even always on purpose or their fault. Fuck the whole thing. Why I keep going I don't know.... is there a reason I should continue? Other than just for something to do? Because I can't stand having other people control things who are assholes and liars and stupid. I should be doing a solo project.... of course that would be too hard for me to as well probably. I should take up knitting... no that's too hard too. Why is it so hard to find a guitarist? At least one I could count on for more than a short time? And not even that. Are we so horrible to work with? Is the music really bad? Or is it just I'm too ugly, old, and fat and no one would want to book us if they can help it or get someone better. And that's pretty much everyone else. Even though I'm the only one, pretty much everywhere, doing what I do. Isn't there something unique there? Does that count for anything? Apparently not. So once again I am fucked and have to start fucking over. That's a lot of work and I don't know if I want to do it anymore just to get fucked over later again.
