On June 30, I am playing in this awesome X-Ray Spex tribute band, X-ReSpects. We are going to play the entirety of the Germfree Adolescents album (all fifteen tracks) for your listening pleasure! Please come see our show! It’s an honor to play in a band with such talented musicians as Hailey Wojcik, Aileen Brophy, Brian Viglione, Carianne Murphy, Holly Brewer, and Ryan Weisheit. They are awesome, and a rocking night is guaranteed!!!
Facebook event page is here.
From the moment I wake up until the moment I go to bed, my most pressing thought is this: When can I next ride my bike, and to what destination?
I wrote something about the HBO movie on Pussy Riot.
Goodbye youth, you strange confusing time.
You probably know that I am not someone who often asks others for help. Nevertheless, I need your help in order to keep on making music. I am trying to make another album, and, at this point, it’s difficult for me to afford the cost of studio time. However, this particular album is something that I have worked towards for many years, and it is something that I really believe in. I am going to be trying my best over the next year to make it a reality.
My band Leda is doing an Indiegogo fundraiser to help cover a few days of recording over the next few months, and I am offering a whole bunch of gifts and services as part of this fundraiser, including guitar lessons, writing workshops, homemade dinners, poetry books, and more. If you are interested in any of these things, and/or if you are interested in hearing my songs in the future, then you can participate in the fundraiser. If you do make a donation, I will be very grateful to you, but seriously, this is just a request, and I know it is a lot to ask, so please do not feel obligated in any way to donate. Thank you for even reading this.

Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused. Anything is possible. Stay open, forever, so open it hurts, and then open up some more, until the day you die, world without end, amen. — George Saunders in “The Braindead Megaphone”
