Wow, one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I met so many very cool people. I am so lucky to have been able to have a full band on stage. The Ego Likeness crew have been so great for us and allowed us to put on some of our best shows. I am sad to say this will be the last one with this crew for a while. I love working with my friends on the east coast. I don’t know when I will be able to play with Ego Likeness again.
I had so much fun hanging out with Angels in Agony as well. Great music, and loads of fun to sit around and joke with. I liked them so much I might try and do a mini tour with them and Valhal around the WGT festival. like a small 5 show tour in may. I will be working on that. I wish more people would of made it out for the goth cruise, it was an amazing event and i feel like people really missed out on it. I know people are poor though.
It was a blast just hanging around on a ship, looking at the endless ocean. Being around so many friends, and all these neat cool new people. Nathan Raper is an Amazing DJ and tons of fun to talk with. Steven Archer just blows my mind any time we talk about anything, so insightful and intelligent. Donna always gels everything together and has one of the most amazing voices ever. Rick is a fun guy to drink with and talk and talk talk talk. Who would of thought I would be doing “mainus” jokes on a ship in the middle of the ocean with a strange Dutch Future Pop act?
The Island Excursions were a blast, i only did one though, still drinking with Rick on top of a building on an island tourist trap was priceless. Talking about Rush songs and playing guitars. Why do I use him on my newer songs instead of playing it myself, cause i dig Mindless Faith Guitars.
Krztov has done an amazing job for VAC this last year as well. He was able to enjoy this with his wife. They both really needed a VACation big time. Krztov is my gaming best friend in this world. We have both gone through some seriously hard times together. I think we have an unbreakable bond. I had a blast hanging out with him on the boat playing air hockey. Bowling everywhere we go. I am blessed to have all these amazing people in my life. This year has been the year of friendships.
I also got to pick the brain of Gabriel Shaw (Gabe Grohl), wow so much insight, this man has toured with so many damn bands and seen it all. My brain has gained a few pounds picking his. This guy is amazing.
I also met these amazing Supermodel Actors (Kim and Misty Ormiston) who dress up hardcore and come to the goth cruise events. They liked our show and were super nice to us. WOW. They bought a VAC shirt, and some cds as well. They are also in the new Hunger games movie that is about to come out. GO SEE IT. I hope they get more big roles!! I really love their make up, going to ask them for some tips cause man I suck at make up.
