No More Ninjas Out on the South Mall of UT Austin

Andrew and I just got done with another practice session out on the South Mall of the University of Texas at Austin.

At the end of practice, I got a call from Margaret Moser from the Austin Chronicle. She's writing an article on Novelty bands of Austin. She interviewed me on Saturday. (it's supposed to be published next week) Margaret's final minute question brought up some memories.

We first started playing out on the South Mall in 1999. After being invited to perform at Excalibur, Andrew and I started practicing live at UT, cuz, believe it or not, Andrew was terrified of being on stage! We needed to help get him over his fears.

Well, we got a lot of attention. At one point we even had a comic published in The Daily Texan where three ninjas were about to jump us while performing out there. The text read, "And silence overcame the South Mall..."

It was hilarious!

If nothing else, the idea that it'd take THREE NINJAS to take out two cowardly musicians!

Whatever the reason for this wee comic strip, it's nice to see that not only do people still come out to see us perform, but there just don't seem to be quite as many Ninjas out there. In fact, most of them are too busy listening to the music to assassinate us.
