Lagoon Update: Cheeseburger, Internet Show, The Middle East, Geography

A new approach

 
Hi friends, it’s good to see you. Happy they finally let you out.
 
 

Time to make love to the Internet

 
No, I did not say “ON” the internet, so your hopes of seeing some sort of Lagoon incestual dance is not going to happen. And seriously, get checked out. You’re sick.
 
We have decided that we are going to start streaming live concerts from our Studio in Boston MA (want to know more about the studio? Go here )
 
 
WHY you might ask? A few reasons…
 
1. Because we can- the technology is there, and we found a way to get GREAT live sound (it’s a secret) – Also Ustream allows us to do this for free with multiple camera angles.
 
2. Everyone can join us – literally everyone
 
3. We hope to expand this show to more acts, have other local artists
 
Pretty cool eh?
 
Let’s go over some details.
 
This show is going to be Friday May 27th at 9pm EST broadcasting LIVE from Lagoon’s Tornado Shelter in Boston MA on our Ustream Site (There’s not much up there now except a test – and someone was a little out of tune)
 
We will also probably be drinking… Wait… Not probably… We will also be drinking, so this is going to be an overall fun time.
 
I’ll update you all closer to the show, and David is going to be designing a stellar poster.
 
   
 

Time to make love to the Middle East

   
 
LAGOON
 

Not sure how you want to interpret that headline, but… The Middle East  is an awesome club in Cambridge. We love playing there.
 
We figured since we’re doing an internet show we should ALSO do a live show. We don’t want you to think we are going soft.
 
Here are some tentative details (the date is set in stone):
 
Where: The Middle East  in Cambridge
When: Thursday June 30th
Why: Because it’s been too damn long.
 
This will be our first concert since our 3rd album released…. Wait… You did know our third album came out right? Well if you didn’t, please go buy it. I am not going to fluff around, it’s the only reason why we exist on this earth (link/picture goes to itunes, but it’s on every other site imaginable just search Lagoon Gemini).
 



 
We hope to see you there, and… Again… We’ll update you with the full list of bands, and a sweet ass poster soon.
 
 

Why do some states hate us?

 
LAGOON
 
We, as a band, love to track our site statistics. We have had enormous success with our homepage in hits, downloads (our first two albums and previews of our third are free), and even the blog… this blog… the exact same one you are reading.
 
However, recently we have noticed a disturbing trend.
 
Certain states just don’t like our website ( I had to reference a map since I’m Stoopid):
 
Maine
Ohio
South Dakota
Idaho
Nevada
New Mexico
Kansas
Arkansas
Missispippippiiiiippiiiipi
Kentucky
North Carolina
Delaware
 
Hawaii
Alaska
 
Some of these states I can fully understand- like Delaware which is not really a state

Also Kansas – cows can’t type- Arkansas for the same reason.

The one that really bothers me… Nevada!? Really? C’mon… We’ve played shows there; we’ve gambled and hooked there. Just bothers me.
 
Half of Indonesia has clicked on our website, but we can’t even get all of America. I feel like a failure. Know of anyone who lives in these crapholes? Get them to click on our site, and I wont call their home a craphole.
 
   

Old Picture – New Fun

 
My sister, Marisa (the damn drummer in this band), went back to our hometown last week and scanned a whole bunch of old photos. Nothing good can come of this.
 
Let me present to you my ~10 year old self:
 
LAGOON
 
 

Maybe it’s just me… But I did not reminisce when I saw this. I did not question where I was, or who took the picture. I did not even comment on my impressive watch…
 
 
 

The only think I could think of was….
   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
LAGOON
 
 
The internet has changed me.
 
 

FEATURED POSTER

 
 
For those of you who don’t know, and if you don’t know this shit by now it’s really a shame, @Davidtornado our lead singer is also the mastermind behind all the designs on our website, posters, tee-shirts… everything except Pat’s wardrobe.
 
The band has been together since 2003, that’s 8 years of shows, that’s a shit ton of posters.
 
So we decided to dig some old ones up, and feature them on the blog and the facebook (full gallery in the facebook)
 
 

Enjoy

Jessica Frease and her husband Ryan, our good friends, incredible designers and genius behind our Seafoam Mascot have been blessed with a gorgeous baby girl.
 
Please welcome, Vivian Poppy Frease.
 
LAGOON
 
Vivian was born January 15th, weighing 7lbs 2oz. She has also already designed at least three print ads at the ripe old age of 2 (days). There is, without a doubt, that this will be one of the most artistically talented humans that has ever been forged in a baby oven.
 
Jessica has been one of Lagoon’s greatest supporters, providing her wonderful artistic talents for some of our posters and creating our long time Mascot Seafoam. Please take a moment and check out her Website.

LAGOON FEATURED MODEL: Isaiah Lucas

I am not going to lie. I screwed up a little. I forgot the MODEL in the last blog. So… I got to thinking.. Why not give the models their OWN BLOG? is that too much to ask. I mean… They are sexy.. They take great pictures… They deserve their own entry. OK, enough talking more modeling. Here is Isaiah Lucas. Enjoy.

Short. Sweet. Models.

Well, not that the models are short, or sweet for that matter. I’ve never actually tasted a model. Wait, I take that back. There was that one time I tasted in a model in Mexico. At least part of a model.

Lagoon loves Jessica Frease so much it hurts, and a new Featured Model: Kevin Sullivan

A Match Made in Heaven

Wowey Wow, We have been so fortunate to have such amazing people believe in us. @thehawkshow and @gustavecadet have both helped us take our musaks to the video level, and now our long time “Seafoam” designer has agreed to help us to make a series of new tee-shirts, as well as this amazing poster for our upcoming show at Cantab Lounge February 19th.

Jessica Frease is an extremely talented graphic designer and artist that has worked with a number of companies including Reebok, The Cartoon Network, and Trader Joes. If you’re a Lagoon fan you have certainly seen her work in the many, many faces of our beloved mascot Seafoam (click the pictures to see them):

LAGOON

For more of her work, and information about this incredible person, check out her site at www.hotfreshnow.com

We cannot express how excited and thankful we are to have such a talented person on board with us. Check out the sweetness of this poster (Iphone wallpaper, .pdf, and desktop wallpaper versions are available on our site at : Art Gallery )

LAGOON

I guess this is a perfect lead in to the next, and completely unexpected (haha), portion of this blog. Which is this week’s Featured Lagoon Model. Thank you again Jessica, for creating Seafoam, the lovable man-eating bone-shattering mascot of Lagoon.

Lagoon Featured Model: Kevin Sullivan

I think Kevin is the perfect featured model for this week. He looks quite warm in his beanie, and the fact that is something like 10 degrees out… well… it just works. Actually sometimes I don’t understand my own logic. This might be one of those times *sigh*. I love this first picture. It seems, like Chuck Norris, Kevin possesses the ability to kick a man’s soul.
