I just found out over the weekend that one of my favorite defunct bands has reunited and a new album is due out this November on Trustkill. You know how I found out? I tweeted this  last December:

15:38 all i want for xmas is for armsbendback to reunite. get on that, fat man.

In my heart, I always knew that posting my tweets to my blog would benefit me someday (on top of the fact that 75% of my tweets were vaporized during the Great Twitter/Facbook Outage of Summer ’09), and this was finally validated over the weekend when SANTA HIMSELF found the entry containing that tweet and left this comment:

well merry fuckin christmas

odd how i was trying to find out more about this fantastic news and this blog is the first thing that came up in the search

I listened to their album “The Waiting Room” a lot back when it came out in 2003. It got me through some tense and frustrating days at Weiss Meats, where I was the office manager and spent most of my four years there plotting suicide and homocide. And even to this day it remains one of the few albums that I can listen to start to finish, no skipping required.

This song in particular, “Arms of Automation,” STILL makes my eyes sting with tears when I hear it.

Thank you, Santa. I will never refer to you as “Fat Man” ever again.

(I hope they tour. Get on that one next, Santa.)

  1. Santa is the MAN!!! And the song you shared? So good.

    Does this mean the Easter Bunny is real, too?

  2. I just found a messae from you in my spam folder of email. I think the blog “gods” hate me too because I am no longer notified when you post a blog and I am finding all kind of stuff in my spam folder.Jeez, when will these genius computer people perfect this crap!

    • See?? Sometimes blogs create so much havoc. The plugin I was using to send email notifications hasn’t been working for a few mths now. Henry said it’s because WordPress was upgraded and some of the plugins haven’t caught up yet but I think that’s his way of saying, “I don’t care enough about your blog to fix it.”

Say it don't spray it.
