Back in the mid-80′s I joined my first band, Pathetic Fallacy. We were a punk/hardcore/skate band with a lead singer, his positive message and 3 skate punks who could barely play the bass, guitar and drums.
Coolest thing about this demo was that it was recorded by Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls in their practice space and features Johnny Reznik playing the opening to one of the songs (see if you can pick it out – he really used to be a decent solo guitarist). I played on George’s drumset and was nervous as all hell.
Thanks to Derek Daniels for sending me these mp3s 20 years later – I really appreciate it!

My first paycheck job was working at a friend’s father’s pizzeria and I worked there for a few years making pizza. I made a lot of friends and consider it a great time in my life even if I was just spinning my wheels there. So the friends I made are what I take away from the experience and one of my best friends, Pat, has finally got his own place!
PJ’s Avenue Pizza (635-6500) opened for business today and I am humbled to have helped him with his website. Since I’m not much a designer, I’m a back-end guy, I did the best I could going just off the menu he had. I hope it helps!
So if you’re out by him on Millersport near the hotel and UB, give him a call and get yourself some ZA!
