Comet Wiser, also known as 'Poopey Face' and 'Hollywood' passed away on Saturday, April 21, 2007. She came into our lives on March 29, 1997 by way of the Animal Foundation in Las Vegas on 700 N. Mojave Rd.
I remember that day. It was shortly before Erick's 14th birthday, and as a family, we decided that we were going to bring a kitty into our lives! It was quite an exciting day for us, and we set out to the Animal Foundation to look for our new baby. We were looking around, and there she was, sitting in her cage, looking at us with her beautiful yellow eyes and little black nose, saying "take ME"! There was another orange feisty male that we were also considering, who was jumping all over the place, trying to outshine her. The people at the Foundation alerted us to the fact that she was to be euthanized the next day, and that solidified our decision to bring her home with us.
We brought her home, and were instantly in love with her. She had a white spot in-between her shoulder blades which reminded us of a comet, so the name stuck! Just like any awesome kitty, she played relentlessly, and was able to jump the highest and most graceful that I've ever seen a cat jump!
She was an awesome addition to our family for 10 happy years, and will be dearly, dearly missed. We love you baby girl, and I promise we'll be with you again one day!
Some good and some not so good news to share with everyone. First the good. We had a great first week with "Cannibal," the album debuted at #36 on Billboard and our shows have been some of the best I can remember. There's nothing like getting back on the road, seeing our friends and getting a chance to share the new songs with you.
The not so good news is that after our Abilene show, Nick broke his
hand and we've been forced to cancel tonight's show in Dallas. We promise we'll come back through as soon as we can. Nick is doing ok, although he's more than a little bummed that he's going to have to take a break from the tour. We are flying in a temporary drummer and the plan is to be up to speed by Houston on Friday with Nick re-joining the tour as soon as his cast comes off.
The new album by Static-X entitled Cannibal hits the stores today, April 3, 2007! Everyone should pick up this album, because it ROCKS! Make sure to pick it up today!!!
