Update From The Academy Is… Bassist Adam T. Siska

The Academy Is… bassist Adam T. Siska checked in with fans on the group’s MySpace blog on Thursday (April 17), discussing his brother Jason’s participation on the latest edition of ‘Survivor’ among other topics. He writes:

Hey everybody! It’s yours truly, Adam T. Siska.

My friends and I have been enjoying our time here in Los Angeles. However, I must say the temperature is very unpredictable here, sometimes very nice during the day, but very cold in the evenings.

Over the weekend, I took a drive up to Big Bear, California and enjoyed the great outdoors. One day I think I will get a horse and go live up in the mountains, and spend my days wrestling bears and cookin’ up s’mores.

As some of you may know, I am big supporter of the Chicago Bulls. Yes, I am pretty bummed at the fact that they didn’t make the playoffs this season. But I am pretty excited to see what happens this year in the playoffs, its been an exciting year in West, and I’m excited to see what the Celtics are all about. Anyway… enough ESPN talk…

All in all, life is good, I can’t complain. At seems as though the weather is getting better and that makes me happy. I look forward to summertime, and all of the excitement lying ahead.

We have been working hard on Album Number 3 and we can’t wait for you to hear it.

In other news… hasn’t my brother been awesome on Survivor? I hope you all have been watching my Survivor videos on FRIENDS OR ENEMIES. That dude Ozzy has got a lot of nerve to be talking sh** on my brother. It goes to show that talk is cheap. Ozzy looked like an idiot when my brother dominated him last week. We will see who comes out on top in the end…. I’ll give you a hint, his name rhymes with JASON.

Thanks for reading, have a wonderful day.
Until next time…
