Just wanted to remind everyone that this is the last 15 days to go by www.reverbnation.com/flamesofice and pick up and of the merch or music there. The store will be closed as of sep 30th and I'm not sure when the new store will open up. If I can sell a bit more stuff there then I can get the new website and storefront up and running sooner. Just saying.
Hey everyone. I think I'm going to push through with the website idea. I've started doing some planning and sketching for what I want to do and getting ideas together. If this happens then the website will go live one piece at a time, so the store won't be up immediately. The biggest problem I'm having is funding... But I'll work that out. I always do. I'll keep everyone posted.
To battle this issue of Reverbnation shutting down the storefront I am considering creating my own site (www.flamesoficeofficial.com). It would also help me feel a little more official to have my own site. The site, if I create it, would have a main page, bio page, news page, image page and a store page.
How many of you would like to see this happen?
I just found out that the store where I currently sell all my merch (reverbnation.com) is shutting down. Unfortunately this issue is out of my control. I am working to find a new website that will offer good deals on the merch (CDs, Shirts, etc). Once I find a new location I will be sure to pass the info along and create new links. Due to this lack of respect for the customer I will be closing my reverbnation account. Sorry for any problems this may cause you. I'm working to fix it as fast as possible.
So, here is your third clue on the super secret project I'm working on. Remember, make your guesses (one per clue, one per week) to my inbox and the first person to guess correctly will get something for free.
"There are wide spread reports of Zombies swarming clubs across the country".
To celebrate hitting 300+ fans (THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!) here is a sampler of music I'm working on for the new album. None of these tracks have seen any final production yet and are still lacking vocals, so consider them demos and a glimpse at what's to come. I hope it gets you all as excited for the new album as I am. The track is available to download for free if you so feel inclined. :-)
Again, thank you all SO much for all of your support!!!
I know I'm a day late dropping this, and I'm sorry, but the wait is over. Time of the second clue!!!

What you may ask? 1 month premium maybe? A free MP3 version of one of the albums? Who knows?!?!
So, I've been getting asked a lot lately how the new album is coming along. Apparently people don't read my journal entries when I post them. *shrugs* I've put the new album on a temporary hold while I work on something else that I think everyone will appreciate, but here is are the songs I have written for the new album as of now.
1. Anthem For The Betrayed
2. Rip It Out
3. Raise A Glass
6. One More Time
8. More To Come
9. From Shadows
11. My Fear
12. We're Sent To Burn
So, all in all, I'm about half way done writing the new album. When the other project is done and I have a few more songs written I'll probably start recording and editing. We'll see hoe things go, I'm hoping to have this at least in a demo format before the new year, so keep your fingers crossed. That's all I've got for now.
So I finally got to get out off town for a couple of days, and boy oh boy did I need it.
I got to hang out with some friends, went swimming, got to be a lumber Jack by chopping up a tree with an axe and just relax. It was so awesome and just really need to make real person money so I can get a cabin when I get older
Remember when I said I had something special I was working on for all of you? Well, it has officially begun. I'm hoping to have it ready for everyone in the next couple months and I'm hoping it blows some minds. Yes, I am taking a break from writing the new album for this TOP SECRET project of mine, but I'll get back to work on that soon. Any ideas what it could be?
So here I am, just killing time before I start playing some FireFall, and I start thinking about things like double standards.
(I hope this doesn't offend anyone)
Why is it okay for women to not be interested in men that are shorter than they are, but still attractive. But if a man doesn't show interest in a woman that is slightly unattractive in some manner he is considered shallow?
I had more ramblings, but i'm not going to lie. I got really lazy and didn't want to type anymore.
Either way it's shallow. I mean, you like what you like sure, but if someone is your ideal portrait of a partner and the only thing wrong with them is there's a little height difference and you turn them up because of that - that's shallow. But at the end of the day, people have preferences. And that's okay. You can't like date someone you don't want to date and aren't physically attracted to because the world thinks you're a better person or some shit.
So, I got asked last bight why things have been so quiet in the page as of late and I figured it was a good excuse to post a journal entry.
I've got a lot going on right now, but artistically and not. On the artistic side I've got the new album that I'm working on but also something special that will be coming soon. Additionally I'm starting to flesh out ideas for album artwork and merchandise to coincide with the release. I've also gotten back to work on my fantasy novel and I'm still trying to persue digital art and graphic design.
On the non-artistic side, life has been hectic. The Army has been keeping me incredibly busy with both classes and training exercises. On top of all this I go to the gym twice a day now (trying to get my sexy on) and Monday I was in a car accident.
All this being said, I'm sorry things have been so quiet and I'll try to be a little more active from now on.
