Issue 2 - Party Like It's 198X - Page 18 - Ghostbusties
« on: October 11, 2014, 06:30:46 PM »


There really is a porn parody of Ghostbusters called Sexbusters. It came out the same year as Ghostbusters, and it's pretty awful. No ghosts or anything. Basically, when someone has trouble getting sex, they call the "Sexbusters" (a couple girls in shorts and white t-shirts that say "Sexbusters" on them; total cop-out of a uniform) who them come over and have sex with them. Not exactly sure how that's "busting" sex.

Also, Jessica ended up having to cover a couple shifts at her job, so once again the poor posters are neglected and will be detailed later. We figure you'd rather us post the mostly-complete page than to not post anything.

I'm sure the finished posters will be rad. But I also get an odd kick out of imagining he just has posters of solid blocks of color on his wall. Like an extreme minimalist art freak.

He's a video game fan, so they're probably Tetris blocks..

Love the ghostbusties, but I think the party thing is going to be embarrassing..

I read on the internet that ninjas are hungry, you want some food?

Yeah, between the comic and working extra hours, poor Jessica hardly has time to eat or sleep. And I'm currently consumed with trying to finally finish my band's final album by Halloween (it's been about nine years in the making, which is fucking ridiculous). That's why I didn't post any kind of blog this week. But I don't intend to let that happen two weeks in a row.

Nine years in the making! Do you even remember the first song you made for it?

We only finished one song back when we started recording it in 2005, "Werewolves of the Bloodmoon." My band-mates finished most of the instruments for the album, but that's the only song I completed the vocals for. I started working on the vocals for other songs, but I'm pseudo-tone deaf, so it's really hard for me to tell when I'm singing in key or not. Thus it sometimes takes me a ridiculous number of takes get the vocals right (aggressive vocals are much easier for me). Before I was able to finish the vocals on any of the other tracks, the band kind of fell apart and most of the members ended up moving away.

So for the past nine years I've basically been sitting on an album that was around 80-90% done. I've periodically attempted to record the vocals myself, but without someone to tell me when a take is good, it's like I'm a blind man trying to paint. So it was discouraging and I put the album on the back burner.

Last fall, I started recording again with Jessica's help, and actually started making some good progress. I had hoped to have the album out before 2014, but there were a couple songs that were still missing instruments, and those band-members had scattered to the wind. We tried to arrange a get together to do a final bout of recording, but we weren't able to get everyone's schedules to line up.

However, now things are starting to fall into place and it looks like it'll actually be finished in time for Halloween. It'll be such a huge relief to finally get that album finished and out there as it's been nagging me in the back of my mind for nearly a decade now.

[Edit: I really should've proof-read this before posting it. So many typos.]

This gives me good hopes that, despite both of you having a busy life, Satan Ninja 198X will be finished no matter how long it takes. And as a PhD student writing his thesis, I know how it feels to have an unfinished project looming over you although I've "only" been working on it for four years.

Let's hope people will buy the album and it hasn't all been for nothing. I guess there won't be a promotional tour though?

No doubt about that. Unless some kind of tragedy strikes, we're seeing this through to the end.

Actually, I intend to release the album online for free. There have been fans who have been waiting for this album for way too long. Of course most of them have long since moved on and have probably forgotten, but there are a few who have continued to patiently wait. I wouldn't feel right charging them for it. Plus, since the band is defunct and the members are mostly living in different places, it'd be too much of a pain to divvy up any profits made.

And nope, no tour. It'd be nice to get a lineup together to play one final show, though.
