Hey everybody, long time no post! Hope you guys are doing well. Been crazy busy in the studio the past month, working long hours and writing great music. Taking a few days off this holiday weekend, so thought I’d take the chance to give a quick update on some happenings in MCR world. First, a heartfelt thanks for voting for us in the MTV March Madness thing they have going on. Even after being away for a bit, it feels really good to know you are all still with us, ready to strike when called to arms! I’m not sure what it all means, but its always fun to win stuff, so keep voting! I once won $25 on a scratch off lotto ticket, and I can guarantee winning the MTV thing will feel at least 3 times as good as that… Got a new shot of Frank’s up as well. Somehow, while shredding the guitar, tending to his family in Jersey, and looking dashing, Frank finds time to take great photos of us while we’re tracking. This shot features Doug, our engineer extraordinaire. I would say he’s a great dude, but he’s been shredding me in Words With Friends! So while he may be good as his job, he is an utter bastard… Speaking of Frank’s photos, the first 2 lithos in what will hopefully be an ongoing series go up for sale next week. Be ready and waiting to click the link as soon as its put up, I have a feeling they’re going to sell out quick… Tomorrow, we’re going to start a run of contests here. It begins with the first annual MCR Easter Egg Hunt. One of my favorite things to do each year is to paint eggs with my wife. Last year we painted up some Transformer themed eggs, so I’ll be sure to put up a pic of what we do. So in that spirit, there will be four eggs hidden throughout the site. Find them, click them, enter your username and you’ll get the credit and I think win a poster. Watson will have more detailed instructions up soon… Lastly, I will take a quick second to announce my unending obsession with the upcoming iPad. We all know I love gadgets. I probably love gadgets more than air. It will be awaiting on my doorstep Saturday, so after I put it through its paces, I’ll put up my thoughts. Thanks for the time, talk to you all soon! Ray
