Super Sunday

What a nice Sunday this is. I made burritos for lunches, packed up some freshly made chicken stock from last night, made smoothies for breakfast, wrote some lyrics for the songs Tom and I are working on, went to Amoeba for some records, and now I’m making a website for the Yosemite Place Open Studios.

whirlwind weekend

This weekend we stayed in Boulder Creek. Tom played with Absinthe Glow in a radio show on KPIG and a live show At Don Quixote’s in Felton. It was a fun weekend and I feel a little discomboobulated being back at work.

Be Kind to the New Girl

Whenever I start at a new job or a new class or whatnot, hospital I sing this song in my head and it puts me at ease. Luckily my new job rocks and my first week is a breeze. We are seeing the Long Winters on July 17th at the Independent. You should go.

Rosebuds and WFANFC at Mezzanine

We saw the Rosebuds show last night at the Mezzanine for Noise Pop 2008. The sound in the place is a crime. Working for a Nuclear Free City played before them was so good but the sound was so very very bad. The Mezzanine should be ashamed of itself. We weren’t sure if they just […]

The death of Indiegeek

For years I kept a music website about indie music. It was my baby. I learned html on that site and changed my career through it. It has been a good friend. But I haven’t kept it updated for years and I suppose it’s time to move on. I will miss you, dear friend. Update: […]

How to choose music

How do you choose what to put on your iPod when you only have 4.5 gigs of space? How ridiculous is it that this is a hard task for me? Do I take the 18 hour long audio file of Moby Dick? Or do I concentrate on music? And after all the adding and deleting, […]

Best Video Ever

OK Go Treadmill Dance Much more silliness: “I have spent many years walking the Earth, much like Kane, and I’ve seen many things. Some of them legal, some of them warranting several eternities in Hades. But I have never before bared witness to purple potatoes. Seeing as that I am such an adventurous chap, I […]
