The Ireland trifecta is considered a success

Well, we just finished our final show in Ireland. It was pretty great. It took place in the town of Limerick, however, no Limericks were told. Nick started one, feel free to finish it:

There once was a band named spinto
Whose keyboardist fell out the window...

we were set up with our backs to this second story window on a rather shallow stage, and we were all convinced someone was going to rowdy his way right out the rarely used window exit.

In an attempt to take a step away from what we know, the tour blog, and towards what we have seen, the music blog, included is a I also wanted to turn every one on to this band we played with, switches. they were pretty fun. they screamed and shimmied and did all that great rock n roll stuff that they should be doing. check them out. they were also quite nice.

The Switches every second counts mp3


there is my music blog post. while im at it:

asleep in the sea Dance on mp3


alright enough of that hallabaloo. Back on the fairy tonite and shooting a second Oh Mandy video tomorrow which we are all real excited for. Check out the one Tom made on student films. while Im going link-crazy, here are some more student films that are superb.

I see the dice facing the camera in the one photo are all prime numbers. What could it mean? Is it yet another puzzle the Spinto Band has left for us to solve?

I don't see how you can better the video Tom made!

You should get yourself out and about in London instead. Just remember to take some umbrellas.

There once was a Dr named Cox
Who we watched on our televisual box
We all knew his face
From the film Office Space
My goodness, how Doctor Cox rocks.

(had a lovely evening at your gig in Limerick last night, thank you!)

Thought the Dublin show was great. The crowd seemed to love it.
Does Thomas possess the energy of five small children?
It looked like it...

ok, limericks. lemme try.

there once was a band named spinto
whose keyboardist fell out the window
he thought it a door, 'cause his eyesight was poor
since he drank many shots made with jello.

okokok, here we go. again.

there once was a band named spinto
whose keyboardist fell out the window
he thought he would die, but he saw with a sigh
that he landed in somebody's afro.

... yeah, im done.
