Well, it's roughly 12 hours since I posted this morning. In that time...
--Tiger Woods did things no human should be able to do. I didn't see much of this, of course, but saw the first hole whilst waiting on my fried chickens. Turns out the next 18 got even better...
--I drank 76 ounces of water, and not one iota of caffeine.
--I went to the bathroom six-thousand times.
--Ninety "more cowbell" jokes were made....Eighty-four by me.
--Me and the band put in a full day's work, tracking mostly drums, but getting our licks in elsewhere.
Let's talk a little about Donnie Boutwell...the producer/head-engineer for this record and owner/operator of Kosmodrome Studios on Music Row. He's also a drummer, father, handsome Irish devil, and author of the worst R-rated puns I've ever heard in my life. If you're thinking, "Donnie sounds unrelentingly awesome," you would be very right. Also, if you're saying to yourself, "I'd love to see what Donnie looks like from behind, sitting in an oversized Dr. Evil chair...and also, if I could get some Milam-knee in the foreground, that would be great..."

Finally, I'd like to present to you the first installment of a little something I'd like to call...MILAM'S POTENTIAL NAMES FOR HIS NEXT RECORD. Here's today's list, fresh from the studio. Let me know which are your favorites and we'll probably have a climactic title showdown at the end of the week. Here are Monday's titles:
We Invented This Thing in the Seventies
Soul Machines Have No Drum
E-Bow the Other Letter
Milam and Mayonnaise
(and my own personal favorite...)
Who the F*** Is Steve Martin?
