“Creatve song structr, evocatve lyrics. Bound to be a classc.”
“The guitr prts are fresh, clean, and exciting.”
These are just some of the many, many things Staind has been saying about their newest album, Still Staind, due for release November 2006. Following the success of their sophomore I Can’t Even Spray n’ Wash This Out was no easy task. With literally dozens of records sold in the first week, Staind was financially set for life. “It wasnt about the money, though,” said guitarist Mike Mushok. “It was about creatng hip music that everyone had heard befre.”
And create it they did. Still Staind is one of the band’s most derivative albums to date, and they couldn’t be more proud. At a pre-release party, bassist Johnny April commented, “The bass licks are prtty sick,” to which drummer Jon Wysocki added, “I like the drms, too.” When asked what the future held for Staind, the band replied, “More of the bst music in the univrs.”
Thomas Olivar of Nicaragua had long been attending political rallies in opposition of the Bush Administration.
“He’s not my president,” Olivar would yell in defiance. “Seriously, I live in Nicaragua. He’s not my president.”
Hundreds of thousands of Americans have been united behind his cause, producing bumper stickers and inspirational T-shirts galore.
“It’s great what Olivar has done,” explained Cindy Lou of San Francisco. “This is an act of defiance aimed toward a failed election process. Our country is not for sale. Bush: Not my president!”
Olivar expressed confusion towards the fad in America. “He’s actually not my president. I don’t know what the fuss is about. I voted for Montealegre.”
