Philosologging (Mega-Mix)


Natural Log was formed by Ted in an attempt to relieve the day-to-day stresses of college. It was Ted's last year, and his schedule was pretty much jammed with useless classes like "Basket Weaving 101", and "Caring For Your Breast Implants 203". Ted and Tom's Christmas album project gave Ted the idea of forming Natural Log which would be based on the philosophies of the Buttocks. In essence, a Natural Log came out of the Buttocks. The music was completely unrehearsed, and mostly unbearable. Like with the Buttocks, there were several gems that came out of the sessions. Natural Log regrouped later after Ted had completed several music courses in college and had gained a new respect for people who actually knew something about music. These later albums were much more palatable, yet still highly questionable. Ted believes that if Natural Log had continued, "we would have achieved something great." Song titles like, "My Dreams Don't Support J. Allan Hobson" further the theory that this potential greatness was probably overestimated.

"...we're going to be, as good St. Mary's artists should be, we're going to be radical about it. This is Log time and it's very personal. Log Art, we like to call this." -- Tom
