Huge Pupils and Roy Orbitron aim to press a 12" Vinyl LP with one band on one side and the other on the other.
Sean & Bryan (/Huge Pupils) met Conor (/Roy Orbitron) at the Basement Gallery in Ewing NJ probably sometime in 2009 -- long before the Pupils birthed their debut full-length (see: "Kings of Leonia") and before Conor became a dad (literally). Since the Gallery was shut down, Huge Pupils have continued to be stalwart purveyors of particularly New Jerseyan punk and noise music; they play anywhere that'll allow them, and they've recorded a number of wondrous things. Since leaving NJ punk band Alien Father and becoming a dad, Conor's written & recorded songs for Roy Orbitron... resulting in rock & roll magic that features 7 or so different musicians spread from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia to New Jersey to New York, their parts recorded on location later mixed by Conor to create a faux-supergroup of basement-dwelling freaks he admires (see: "Fluorescent Spells").
We'd like celebrate our friendship and continued musical proliferation by documenting a number of new songs on vinyl. One 18-minute side will be Huge Pupils and the other will be Roy Orbitron. But we need your help - financially, spiritually, and otherwise - to make this happen. Mostly financially... Pressing vinyl's a bit more expensive than a $100 DIY CD-R release via Staples and nimble fingers. We don't have metal parts, we don't have a record press, and we don't have any vinyl or any know-how... So we have to pay those that do. Won't you pitch in & make our dreams come true?

The sphincter muscle has a parasympathetic innervation, and the dilator has a sympathetic innervation. In pupillary constriction induced by pilocarpine, not only is the sphincter nerve supply activated but that of the dilator is inhibited. The reverse is true, so control of pupil size is controlled by differences in contraction intensity of each muscle.
Certain drugs cause constriction of the pupils, such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opioids. Other drugs, such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atropine, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LSD, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MDMA, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mescaline, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psilocybin_mushrooms, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cocaine and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphetaminesmay cause pupil dilation.
Another term for the constriction of the pupil is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miosis. Substances that cause miosis are described as miotic. Dilation of the pupil is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mydriasis. Dilation can be caused by mydriatic substances such as an eye drop solution containing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropicamide.
Shadaroba is a word they whisper low when a dream dies and when the heart cries on the silent sand of an ancient land where the Nile flows and the moon glows that means the future is much better than the past.
