Mad world

I have no desire to marry ruin or poverty but we've been together for so many years that we should just move to Utah and make our misery official. Its not that Im not grateful for the times, I mean some of my best work has come in their company. And being neck deep in bullshit will undoubtedly make you appreciate the days that it is only knee high, ya know. But I dont think there is anyone on the planet who wants a daily reminder of where they went wrong or what they SHOULD be doing and haven't. Its hard for me to accept my flaws. Its hard for me to write that sentence. I find flaws in others to be beautiful though. So I guess too, if flaw=beauty than life, by default, is beautiful. I know its a fucking cliche but its true...kind of. I want to make the world better with my art. Not for my country or for staving kids in africa, picking and choosing favorites to help. I want to make the WHOLE world, the whole universe better! Is it possible to do with sound? Im not really sure what Im trying to say with all of this or if I've even said anything at all... peace.

How it was done- So far from home

So much work went into this album. And I don't mean that I had to sit there for hours and think really hard, no, I had to battle thieves and addicts, sleep in cars and 24 hour wal marts, learn how to repair almost everything that can be repaired on old cars (cars that may not be meant for long distance traveling) go through mass amounts of heartache and headache and do a vast array of odd jobs. It was quite an experience, one I wouldn’t trade for anything but man was it tough. This album consists either of songs that were written while I was on the road playing music and just being a wandering soul on a tripped out planet or songs that were revised during this time. You can hear almost hear my heart beat in some of the tracks. It was written as a soundtrack, themes inspired by and based upon people. People. Once the album was written, I moved back to my spot in the Southwest desert, picked up two part time jobs, grew a beard and started recording. With this, I realized just how long I had been out of the natural work force but that wasn’t going to run me down. Now it’s done and Im working on playing live again, gearing up for another run into the big blue void. See you soon my friends.

Random Thinking

I figured I would write something, only because I havent in such a long time and so many interesting things have happened. New CD is coming out, which I gotta take by that one store because the staff there acts like I'm an international rock god. Got to work on a web show and a tv show. Even a zombie short film still in the works, but soon to be out hopefully. Everything is looking as nice as it is unpredictable but thats alright. Ok then, short and sweet. Does anyone actually read this anyway?
