I have to admit that I'm feeling a little lost without my self-portrait challenge today. I have to come up with something to post. Ugh.

Bad Veins has been in the negotiation phase with Dangerbird Records. We are really excited about this development and the people at the label seem really supportive and nice from what I hear. It has brought full circle what I've been noticing for a while, there are a ridiculous amount of bands out there, in this case a record label, with animal names. I am going to list as many as I can think of here. I know I'm going to wake up in the middle of the night and think of one. Some of these bands have been around for a while but I've been noticing a silly trend and it needs to stop. I have to say I love about 90% of these bands music but come on! While attaching all of these links I did discover a few awesome sights. For fun I would like for you to try to come up with an awesome animal band name. The winner will receive one animal band mixed CD from me. Poll closes on Saturday February 28th.
