Hahaha man it's been forever since anyones written in this community. I guess considering that the band broke up. I don't even know if there are still any members but whatever.

Anyways, on with the Temporaries buisiness...

I made my friend Kelsea a CD which included the FHS-famous ska/punk hit "Who I Am" by The Temporaries and she wrote about it in her journal along with the track list. Then some random person commented and said that she was familiar with the Temporaries and that they were a local band where she was in Florida.

I think that is SOOOOOOO fucking cool. That some random person who I am clueless of their identity knows who we were off the top of her head when she hears the name of the band. It's just a nice reminder that Orange County Ska Core will never die. I miss being in the Temporaries/BBE. Those were the days.

So heres the entry. Check it out:

Subject:TO ANYONE WHO HAS A FHS YEARBOOK
Posted by:seanthebassman.
Time:9:51 pm.
Hey, to anyone that bought a year book.
I heard that The Brown Bag Escape (or "The Tempories" at the time) has a picture form the battle of the bands in there.

If anyone has a scanner and doesn't mind can you scan it for me? It would be much appreciated seeing that i'm 1000's of miles away from any FHS yearbook!

Thanks,

B.B.E Forever.....

So I posted about the bassist issue in OrlandoWeekly.com's message board and someone left their number. I called the guy up and hes been in a few bands and has a few years experience in bass. His name is Rob. Practice will be soon.

P.S. i'm the only one who updates in the community anymore.

I worked on the look of the community a little bit. new logo, new colors, etc.

I have a guitarist/vocalist in mind and i'm trying to get a practice in soon. Hes a good guy and well known around the orlando ska and punk scene. As for bassists, i'm having trouble finding one.

And since the carnies haven't left any tabs and no way of me contacting them we'll be writing new material i suppose.

Thats all.

Mood:good enough to make a post.
the recording went well and the demo will be out in a week or two thanks to Paul Vincinti (www.Paulvincenti.com). All members of the band will be able to distribute demos.

A new site is being worked on for the band and new equiptment is being saved up for so once all of this is complete we'll be doing shows a lot. The Carney's departed yesterday incase you didn't know. We'll miss them.

The search for new members continues so if you have any questions, concerns about the band and new members, or if you're just bored you can IM the brown bag escape's newest form of contact:

AIM: Brown Bag Escape.

Have a good day.

Alright so time for bradley to update for once.

The Brown Bag Escape will be playing a farewell show and recording a cd very soon. The cd will debut our newest addition to the band: Courtney. Her info is on the community info page.

Fortunately, we've all decided although Paul and Sean are soon moving and will be missed we're going to revive the BBE and find new members and write new material.

We're looking for vocalists, guitarists, and bassists so contact someone in the band about info for auditions.

We're also expanding the horn section and my goal before a post-carney show is to actually be good at trombone. thats my pledge to the BBE fans.

Thats all the news i have to report for now.

Hey everyone. Sorry for the neglection of band news. Unfortunately I've got some bad news. The band will soon be breaking up because Sean and I are moving to Rhode Island. It's not really a big deal to you guys considering that we didn't fuckin' do anything since we changed the name from the Temporaries but it sucks for us. The good news is that dispite the break-up we'll be releasing our second CD as a kind of farewell. I personally feel that The Brown Bag Escape had a lot of potential as a band and I'm dissapointed that we wont get to act on it. The most we can do is record a CD and let you guys in on it. So that's exactly what we're doing. We began preparation for it earlier today. We also recruited a new trumpet player. She goes by the name Courtney and we're really excited to have her. We've been planning on adding to the horn section for awhile 'cause Bradley was lookin' kinda lonely. She'll be recording on the CD with us. We should start recording some time within the next two weeks. I promise it'll come out a LOT better than the Who I Am CD. We're still deciding the track listing but we've pretty much narrowed it down to Go To The Front Door, Double Fuck You, I'm Punk And You're Not, and La Sopa De Papas Fritas. The CD will be limited to 3 songs so one of those 4 will be cut. I'll do my best to keep info on the CD posted.

A farewell show is also possible. Details on that to come.

This band was a lot of fun and I'm thrilled to have been a part of it. We've accomplished some things that I consider truly amazing. Winning 3rd place at the Battle of the Bands and distributing over 50 copies of our first CD in the short period we had been together I think are some really cool things to be able to say.

Thanks to everyone who has supported us.

Subject:We're in the sticker business!
Posted by:af_punk86.
Time:11:31 pm.
The first piece of BBE merch is finally avalable! We've got some stickers floating around and there are a few up for sale right now! They're not exactly in mass-production but a decent amount can and will be made. They'll be going for somewhere around 50 to 75 cents. Anyone who wants one just request it on here or contact one of us and we'll hook ya up. The sticker displays our fancy "Exploding Bag" logo as can be seen on our website and the backround of this community.

Speaking of the web site...
Due to the MAJOR suckyness of the website that I made Alan (mesa812) from Forever In A Day (foreverinaday_) will be taking over our web page design. You can still get all the latest news and info at the site that's currently up. I'll continue to update it until the new one is finished. Among the many improvements, we'll be shedding the URL of the "cjb" bullshit and re-directing it to www.brownbagescape.com. Good stuff.

In random band news...
We'll be getting to work on our demo CD shortly after christmas. Alan and Andrew will be giving us a hand with that as well. Good guys. As of now the CD will be featuring the songs "Go To The Front Door", "Double Fuck You", "I'm Punk And You're Not", and a current work-in-progress song which is probably going to be called "I Like Ska". This is definately subject to change so we'll just have to see how that goes. If it's finished before the Punk and Ska Awards (which I think is on January 4th) we will be passing it out for free there. After that we'll be charging 3 to 5 bucks depending on how good it comes out.

Practices have kinda been a stand-still lately with all the shit like me breaking my hand and the holiday season and exam preperation at school and stuff. And the icing on the cake is that Sean is about to go up to Rhode Island for a few days which will postpone practice a little longer. It sucks but shit happens. Thing should fit back into their usual schedule come January.

We're looking to book some more shows seeing that the set is pretty decently long and we wanna spread the word of BBE. We're looking at places like the Lake Mary Pub, Tanks Bar & Grill, the Backbooth, and the All About Sports Bar & Grill. We're also keeping our eyes open to see if any other bands need openers for their shows. There should be more on that in the comming month or so.

Also, we're still looking for additions to the horn section. The trumpeteer that was going to audition fell through which sucks so we really wanna find some more people. I'm thinking a trumpet, a sax, and maybe another trombone. Anyone know anyone? Lemme know.

So tomorrow is the last practice before Sean leaves. I'm looking foward to it 'cause we haven't practiced in a while and I miss playing "I'm Punk And You're Not" 'cause that song is amazing. I have a new finished song too. The "I Like Ska" one I mentioned in the paragraph about the CD. If we can completely finish that tomorrow I will be a happy camper.

Sorry this entry was so long. I just haven't posted in a long time. I'll try not to neglect it in the future. I'm gunna go do other stuff now.
