Ello Ello to all in Nebthos land…

Devin’s job is still up in the air… Our apartment at the church turned out to be nothing but literally a 10×10 room… So… I’ve been crashing with some friends here and there… I’ve been doing some sound engineering too… My first gig was at the Ashland Paramount… I helped load in Dell McCury and Left over Salmon… Dell McCury for those of you that dont know is a legendary Bluegrass picker… Him and his band worked off of two mics… and it was just incredible!!! Left over salmon did good as well… they were a “Slamgrass” band, that basically means Bluegrass with drums… =] It was an awesome experience…

I got paid for the gig, which was nice for a change… I also got to hang out with my Sound Mentor, Paul Rice and my new bosses Richie and Chet… I just got back from another gig with Richie this weekend at the Scarecrow festival in Washington Courthouse Ohio… I got to run the monitors and learned a ton about what to do, and definitely what not to do!!! 6k is not your friend =] The Blue Maxx was a 10 piece big band and were simply awesome… and I can say they were the first band I ever did monitors for… (tear) I’ll always remember that… =] Also a little known band came threw and did a good job… I think they called themselves the coasters? =]

It was a great time and I look forward to working with you guys again… Well lets see… The JNP… things are still pretty crazy right now… Im going to be trying out a drummer tomorrow to see how he does… His name is Mister Matt Horsely… I haven’t heard from Devin so I have no idea what’s up… So devin, plz drop us a line… =] I really need to move out of the dorms and into our apartment ASAP!!! =] Well, thanks for reading… keep praying for us, cause we certainly need it…

God is still good

Well…
today is a very big day…
actually its still the 4th but in 3 minutes it wont matter… Today I’m truly leaving the nest and going to try to make it in the real world. I travel back to Ky in the morning and try to find Devin at KCC. Then we move our stuff in the church that we’ll be staying at for the first couple of weeks… And then… wow… Try to make a buck doing some live sound and try to start a band…

Ummm its scary but its a commitment me and Devin made to each other “After we graduated, we were going to get together, do the band thing and make it work…” quote unquote=] God knows what will happen, but were really chasing a dream… All we have is our faith, a few bucks and some guitars… Pray for us during this time… It will be a hard time getting things started, but with God’s help we’ll find a way.

I just hope everything we do, will be for God and not for ourselves… That a promise I hope we can always keep… The JNP is far bigger than any of us or the band itself. Its a new life and new step hopefully in the right direction… =] So yeah, today is a big day… The day I left home…

My parents will be sad, but they support me in my decision… only spelled right… They may not understand it… but they support me and with that I consider myself lucky… So what will become of our members of the JNP??? Tune in next time… Same JNP Channel… Same JNP Time….

Well… Car is still in the shop and its looking like Im heading back to Ky friday. Devin has pretty much got his job… I still dont know how often I’ll get to do my job… =/ Were going to be living at a church for the first couple of weeks until we get an apartment. This church is going to be the studio and practice hall for the JNP. So right now we can say were literally living in the studio! =] Things are look good for the band, its a exciting time. Things are finally coming together. No more talk. The X-COM project or the JNPX as we call it, is back in the mix of things… Too many arms in the fire as always for Devin and Dave… Except this time its a little bigger than QuakeOrama =] www.clanpoc.com But with God’s providence will make it through somehow. We’ve got alot of work ahead. Its great to have mandy onboard with us. Shes such a incredibly talented singer. Unfortunately I dont think she reliazes what shes got herself into… =] But its all good… I look forward to working with the JNP cause the JNP is far bigger than any of us… I hope to look back on day and say… I was apart of the JNP… And it was bigger than me… =] Rock ON! Expect some music material from us in the next couple of months… maybe we’ll release some practice sessions or something so you guys know what we sound like. word…. spread the word of the JNP
