Must have this…

  In loving memory of Comrade Buddha.

Sebastien Grainger may be alright after all.

I actually really enjoyed Death from Above 1979, but the Pitchfork-axis jungle telegraph was all het up about whether or not Sebastien was a colossal prick or not.    I stumbled across Sebastien’s solo MySpace page today.   I have always thought he was a fantastic drummer, and I tried to model my duo group (with Zaxx from Music Hates You, alternately […]

and the hits just keep on coming…

the thread over at the Electrical Audio bbs that I mentioned yesterday continues to provide massive entertainment value for the time invested: About six weeks ago, at a show, to a friend, I said something like, “you can break my kneecap again if it meant no one ever had to hear the Eagles ever again.” […]

Why we have furniture

Travel Tip

Hey, kids, if you’re traveling to another country to play music, and you’re gonna get paid for it, you’re gonna need an entry visa and a work permit.

Some images that make me happy

Just randomly combing through my images folder today, and finding old pictures. Here’s one: That’s Buddha and my wife. He’s being crabby and she’s being sweet. Business as usual. I miss this place. Best place I ever lived: Notice the shady oak tree, the lake in the background, happy chow welcoming me home and the […]

Question of the (yester)Day
