It's been a while, friends. I don't post here as often anymore, but I frequently come by to check up on you guys.

I've been doing well, thanks for asking.

My band has a record coming out really soon, and we've been lucky enough to get some pre-release attention from the press. It's very flattering.

I know what we do isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I thought I'd pop in to let you know what I've been doing.

Great stuff, Erik -- I really dig Stoneburner.

Stop by more often -- you really know how to stir the drink here.

Always great when a Philly band makes an impact, no matter what cup of tea it happens to be.

Good on ya, Erik. Keep living the dream. Glad to see you're still alive, and your son is still a sweet innocent baby. Keep him that way as long as you can.

Oh no! When my kids started having "opinions" I had to redouble their beatings! Damm, that was tiring. frown

Good to hear from you, Eric. And great news about the band starting to go places! grin

Oh, and I actually watched that documentary about the Ulfberth swords. Was really cool, and a neat inspiration for the song. thu

"Does accents"

Love it! So cool to watch a sense of humor develop.

Much to my wife's chagrin I'm a bit of a collector of knives, swords and bladed weapons (and I have the scars to prove it). I would be very interested in this documentary about Ulfberth swords Erik. What is it called and where can I find it, may I ask?

If I'm not mistaken, this was it:

(edit)

Reading the transcript, now I'm certain that was it, because one segment actually replicated the entire process, including making the crucible steel...

Yup, that's the one. The most bad-ass sword in all of the Viking lands. Fun fact: I wrote those lyrics while sitting in a Starbucks. So, yeah, that song could have easily been about chai latte. Just saying.
