Nope, still haven't gotten over the fact they broke up so, let's pretend they didn't for the duration of this post.
Yesterday was kind a rough day for me (not to mention, my 8th straight day of school because of my weekend classes) & in turn, I listened to Envy all day.
Anyway, I have a double snow day going on over here so I decided to give some "Envy" related updates.
Sidenote: I feel almost disrepectful calling the Envy boys "the Envy boys". I know Envy on the Coast is no more but, hopefully it didn't leave such a bad taste in anyone's mouth, they can stand being correlated with their former band. Otherwise, I'm not sure how to refer to them.
Obviously, Ryan & Brian are currently doing their thang with Billy Rymer(!) in their new project, North Korea. Their first song, 'Master Plan B', sounds messy as shit to me. It almost sounds like you're hearing someone's thoughts when they can't exactly think straight. There's something nice about that, I think everyone can relate to that feeling but again, that's just what it sounds like to me. As hectic as it sounds, Ryan's voice could chill me out after the shittiest day of my life. Still keeping up with his & Brian's Tumblrs.

Sal Bossio apparently moved out to sunny California (traitor...) & he's doing vocal lessons via the internet. I'm glad he's doing something that makes him happy & something that he's undeniably good at. I'm sure he'll excel at this job not only because he's an exceptional singer but, because he already has a following through Envy. He recorded two songs on his new website & I hope to God these songs won't be the last we hear.

Sal's incredible voice & new song "Fix Us":
I have no idea what's going on with this one but, I'm sure it invovles a lot of smoking & a lot of chilling.
He won 'Best Bassist' this year in AP magazine & no one derves that more than he does.
I really hope to hear more Earth shattering basslines from him in the (near) future.
I guess that covers it. I'm assuming Doug went back to doing whatever he was doing before the band & I wish him all the best.
This has been one long-ass post...
I still miss you, Envy.
