Hello 2008!



I always like to be sure that something is definite before I go blabbing around town about it (see vegan blog,) so it gives me great pleasure and relief to be able to confirm the new year, 2008! It is definitely 2008, and oh what a year it has been! How about that rain, eh?

In AFI world, we're writing a new album that will be out when it's done, so don't hold your breath. It won't be out in the next fifteen minutes, and even David Blaine can't hold his breath that long.

So what is everyone up to this year? Make any resolutions that you already broke? This year I resolve to drink some coffee right now.

Until next time, check out this thing I found on youtube.

Stay Fresh™,
Hunter

P.S. If you haven't seen the "Sensual Seduction" video by Snoop Dogg yet, you suck.

This year is great hunter. Loving the rain and the snow. No resolutions for me though. Now that i think about it this year could be better if we had that EP.... Where is it???

R E T R O JuneBug said...

I'm really excited about the new year and the new album. Happy new year, and good luck!

<333

Meg said...

Hunter, oh Hunter. That was amazing.

mollie said...

Hahahahaha. This year has been pretty decent. Snow, work, almost getting hit by a train. It's how I do.

:)

This Girl said...

Haha that video!
You guys take your time on the next album....make sure it's SUPER KILLER :PP

yeahh...happy month into 2008 Hunter.
Hahaha.

Witching Hour said...

Wow, that video was random yet made of awesome...and was that Dan Kelly making a cameo at the end?

rebeccajr said...

You're so koo. Also, I had no clue that Snoop Dogg was funny! Welcome to the new year, Hunter.

Cammy said...

That Snoop video is amazing. hahaha

Cammy said...

Good to see you on here. It's nice to see you're alive and kickin

said...

hahah sweet!


<33

AlyssaKeltie said...

Ahahaaha. Happy 2008 to you too! :]

I changed my resolution (can you do that?). I don't remember what the first one was, but now it's to be extreamly well behaved that way my mom will let me go to The Bamboozle Left. As for the weather, I'm loving it. It's a nice change from the California sun.

<3

This Girl said...

and oh man btw....that tune from the video is now in my head.

>__<

Micahjk said...

can't wait for the new album

also still waiting for Hunter's Revenge to tour to MICHIGAN

shanagdi said...

I love rain, but the cold is killing me. 2008 is going to get better with each month. I did not make any specific resolutions for the new year. I am taking it a day at a time so my resolutions change often!

That Snoop Dogg video is fun as is the video you shared.

She Sees Light said...

That was probably one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in my life...

Hah, you're back! Yay, Hunter, we was missing ya on Blogger. I'm pretty sure Jade is drowning in all the questions he's getting. Perfect time to intervene.

What to say, what to say. Oooohhhh Hunter. Wish I could've gone to the San Diego show with my friend a while back. My other friend went though, and was super amazing and snagged us some of your fancy autographs. I'm proud to own the left-handed scrawl, Hunter. It makes me smile to look at it. :)

Just because I like to make comments way longer than needed, thanks for pulling in the new year. :D I was having some doubts, but I'm happy to say that I'm confident now that your blog-posting has assured 2008 that it may commence.

bloodstainxx said...

It's great to hear from you again :]
Yupp. I already broke my "Don't procrastinate" resolution. Who hasn't? Resolutions are meant to be broken :D
I can't wait for that album! =O
<3

Abbz said...

I laughed very hard for some reason.

Anyway, yay for the new year. Though it kinda sucks that Indiana has no snow, and yet Southern California does. It confuses me deeply.

Anyway, have a good week, take your time on the EP/Album thing, and yes, go drink some coffee. :]

Yeah, for Happy New Year! I just put my Happy New year on my blog too, but I changed the date to the 1st.. Shhh! I know it makes me look like a fraud! Who reads my blog anyways. A whole 1 person! SOOOO, for you Mr. Burgan, I will tell you Personally Happy New Year! And what a year it has been! :) Yeah yeah, rock it.

Bella said...

Haha! That is amazing!

Talk about rain! San Fran has been wet all over and today was one of the sunny days (finally).

Resolutions...take a road trip to see you play next time!

And album eh? Sounds good. Wheres the EP?!!

We need more pics that I can place on top of my garbage can!

So when it happenin?!

Sirose said...

I told myself I'd stop slouching but I'm doing it right now.

Synthetika said...

I guess I suck then...


You're a retard Huntizzle.

morrowkitty said...

Mr. Heater said...

Happy New Year. I broke the resolution of forgetting to put my belt the other way and not wearing pants so baggy they fall off my ass. And I must suck, for I dislike snoop dog. Hope you have luck on the EP. Beat that bass! Wait, that sounded kinda dirty, didn't it..

JXH

hiimniko said...

Haha I saw the making of Sensual Seductions on Snoop Doggs Fatherhood.

Wow

kirstin said...

happy new year! no resolutions for me, i keep breaking them! love your freestyling, and that snoop dogg video is awesome ;)

Captain Carson said...

Gosh! I concur in that Mr. Snoop is trying to be Prince, how wonderful. 2008 has brought some good, but mostly I find every day to be not ordinary, but rather interesting.

Sorry for the fancy words, I forgot you just learned how to read!

The bass... the bass!

-M.

Amarantos Everlasting said...

LOL!

Answer That And Stay Fashionable said...

Haras said...

HA. I loved the lightning coming out of your mouth.

All this talk about you guys starting the next album makes me smile. I know it probably won't even be out for another year or so, but still. At least you've got the ball rollin.

Madison said...

We don't go to the movies, we don't go out to eaaat, eaaat, eaaaaaat.

Natacia said...

Wow. Love the video!!
Sadly I did not make any new years resolutions.
I'm pretty happy with my life at the moment.
Love you, Hunter!
Happy New Year.

Madison said...

Oo, double comment. On an even more related note, when I saw "Sensual Seduction" for the first time, I asked a friend of mine if you directed it. All in jest of course. But they agreed that you must have had your hand in it somehow.

heather said...

and a happy 2008 to you. can't wait for the EP and the new AFI album! and i'm lovin' the video you posted (as well as Snoop's vid). hopefully it won't be toooo long before you post here again. maybe with studio updates?? ;)

<3 ya!

Cherol said...

My "no vegan sweets" resolution was broken hours after the new year and none of the others were realistic enough to endeavor.

I dig the verbal lightning storm.

stella said...

Hahahaha. Well that was amusing.

My only resolutions were to try harder at what I'm already doing and volunteer more. Haven't really broken them.

tocki said...

please, i learned not to hold my breath after the 97535705 year interim between sing and december.

and the rain is dope,
too dope.
but now its dopeness has gone.

good thing you're still entertaining.
wish the same could be said for other AFI side projects.

Fatal Kiss said...

That video reminds me of the episode of Friends with Ross and his keyboard. Eek.

And I thought it was just the UK that was getting all the shitty rain!

xxxx

Amelie said...

Haaa.

Happy new year Hunter.
I resolved to do a back flip in one of those air chambers, like the drummer in Muse's video for Bliss.

Yeah, hasn't happened yet but!
Austin isn't too far from here. NASA might let me use their... whatever.
>_>

Btw, we missed you.

leongyiting said...

Happy New Year to you too(:
And ohmygod Sensual Seduction! For a moment I thought it was an 80s Snoop video and I realised he hasn't been around that long. Heh.

liebling said...

Is that the new Hunter Revenge song? ;)

Happy new year to you too. My resolution was not to get too depressed about you guys probably taking eight years to finish the new album. Ha.

JoeMama said...

You are just funky fresh, my man. Funky fresh.

ninja, please said...

that's awesome. Is that going to be on the new album? =D

AFI Girl aka Caitlin said...

Sweet!

punk in writing said...

Yay, Hunter! You're back! And you brought lightning.

Resolution, schmesolution. But I just got a vegan cook book, so I'm gonna try to learn some new skills in the kitchen.

Kayli Puget said...

Hunter, I've got a challenge for you.
I want you to prove that you're better than that SCOUNDREL Jade Puget, by going on my blog and leaving me a comment.
Because he said he'd answer everyone, but he didn't bloody answer me!
Every second you don't, I cut off one of my limbs. GO GO GO GO!!




I love you, and it's nice to see you posting again.
Be more frequent (:
xxxxx

Brittney said...

That was uhhh......random. But then again im even more random. Now its stuck in my haed-thanks alot! lol My resolution was to see AFI live but-as you can see that hasn't happened yet. But I'd rather you guys take your time on that album and make it the best one yet and have to see you guys in '09 rather than it be a sucky album and see you guys this year. Either way-I can't wait for it!

Much love <3
Brittney

camilla said...

You're alive and back on here, amazing! =) It is 2008 indeed and has been for some time now... Have already broken my New Year's resolution though, but eh, that's life. So will this lovely piece of music be on the new album then? haha

<3

Annabel Lee said...

I completely agree that if you haven't seen the Sensual Seduction video yet you suck. It's the most amazing fucking thing. Ever.

My resolution this year was to stop making resolutions. And to smoke more.

~Annabel Lee

propelwave said...

haha nice video!!! welcome back!!! This years fine so far.

layla269 said...

This year has already started out bad. But on the bright side, I have an AFI EP to look forward to.

layla269 said...

This year has already started out bad, but the good thing is that I did'nt break any resolutions! Because I did'nt make any:)

rEDcookiemontank said...

...a lightning bolt.

i dont know whats more important to discuss: the lightning bolt, or that fact that it took like thirty comments before anyone even mentioned A FRIGGIN LIGHTNING BOLT.

a genuine thor moment, totally overlooked...

my resolution was to stop taking shit from my bosses. then i got called in early today, only to be left by myself for four hours to open up my coffee shop and deal with the morning rush. wooo starbucks! best corporation ever!! best burnt flavored coffee ever!!! go 2008!!!!

Buuni said...

That was fantastic, nice celestial effects as well.

Haha.

awokennightmare said...

Haha. It's actually a pleasant surprise to see you posting here again. I'm excited about the album... Jade said you guys were thinking about possible album covers!

I hope you change the logo

Ninja with a guitar said...

There you are! I thought you died or some thing. Welcome to 2008. =] Awesome video by the way. =]

Qarlieaux said...

Was that amazing? Because I think it was. Please confirm.
Thanks.

-Carly

Ps. I resolved not to make resolutions, but that didn't work out very well at all.

poprocks said...

Totally excited about the new year! My biggest resolution is to quit swearing so much...so far so good...I am so happy there is new AFI in the works...but in the mean time,
Hunter Revenge Rules! :)

Buzz Royale said...

Great you made it into 2008 =]

My resolution was to revise for my tests and exams since this is my final year...
haven't done any revising yet and you can see that on my report =[

Will there be any new HR song or are you too busy with AFI stuff?

pirate said...

Someone's little resolution should
be to remember to post up here.

What rain? Florida's freezing.
Speaking of which,

when are you and Tegan going to
start working on that side project?
I'm a bit stoked, if you know what I mean.

morti_viventi said...

fAntAstic, as is the rain. I think it's rained more in the past month than it has in the past ten years minus the past month part.

Oh good I could use one of those new years. :)

Courtney the Mighty said...

This year, I plan to put a humidifier in your home, so as to prevent static electricity buildups (as seen in the posted video)

And then I will solve all math.

Ever.


Even the z's.

Kristi said...

I resolved not to have a birthday this year, but that already happened...

wendy said...

great vid! love the special effects!!

it has been some year, January went to quick for me.

i made plenty of resolutions that i keep putting off!! so i probably broken a couple if that.

and that snoop dogg vid, whats was with the hair!! seriously?? that was all i could look at!!

screaming like dogs said...

i hope thats a preview of the EP

Karlye said...

It's not every day that you see lightning come out of a man's mouth, that was awesome Hunter. :)

Under Saturns Shadow said...

It's nice to hear that it is in fact 2008. especially from you.

I feel the need to tell you that those Macbeth shoes you designed are hella comfy. I love my pair. I have those and the AFI vans from like, 4 years ago. that pair didn't fare too well.. theyre in rough shape, but also hella comfy. any chances of you guys designing more rad shoes?

Drea said...

haha :P

pirate said...

Your video wasn't working for
me earlier. I just watched it,
and I would like to say,

"WHAT THE HELL?"

But I must say,
the keyboard seemed to be
enjoying itself as you
gyrated your hips to the
back of it.

Sarizzle said...

Holy jeez, an entry from Hunter!

I'm upset about that vegan blog.. I was totally looking forward to it. Maybe when you retire? <3

Alas, the video you posted refuses to display on my iPod, but I'll definitely watch later on my computarrr.

Anxiously awaiting the new material.. As well as promoting it. Happy new year and best of luck on everything!

Sarizzle said...

Holy shit please let that song be on the next AFI album. As a hidden track, perhaps. It will fit in so horribly I'll totally piss myself laughing, and it will be awesome.

Andrea Alonzo said...

waaaaaaaaaaaaa
your back!!!!

exorcist emma said...

Very nice Hunter. The lightning effect was pretty fricken sweet!!
haha
