Well, if it wasn’t dead before, it’s room temp now

you may have been wondering why this space has largely gone dark lately. I dunno, now that’s it’s fashionable to think the President is an idiot, I just don’t have the burning need to do political blogging.

step one: confirm the problem before finding a solution

(photo by Spotted) That’s me yammering on about what an honor and a privilege it is for Music Hates You to be selected as the 2006 Flagpole Music Awards Best Punk/Hardcore band. from l-r: Noah- vocals and guitar. Hidden behind him is Big […]

One member of my band had to work Friday night, so we had no gig and really no way that we could practice unless it was between one and four am. Noah had to be up a on roof the next day (we’re all working six and seven day weeks right now in preparation for […]
