  1. Beauty Pill (2001). The Cigarette Girl from the Future on Cigarette Girl from the Future

  2. Five years ago today, Harry and the Potters sang an early happy birthday to my baby sister at Clark County Library in Las Vegas. A few days prior to that, they met me outside a sold out show in Phoenix, AZ, so I could buy some merchandise (which they signed), and waited for me to wrap it, and you know what? They delivered it to my sister for me.

    My sister turns 21 on Wednesday, and Harry and the Potters remains her favorite band.

    Thank you, Paul and Joe, for making my sister smile, and for helping me through the guilt of missing her Sweet Sixteen. Your obvious appreciation of and dedication to your fans is why I am now congratulating you on making it to your 10-year mark on 6/20/2012! Congratulations!! Here’s to another 10 years of fun music and tours and improv shows out of your tour van in the parking lot of sold out shows!

    Ominous. Suspenseful. Sweeping. Light. Soft. Gripping. Tender. Sentimental. Tense. Dramatic. Triumphant. Serene.

    Once upon a time, a band called Pyramids sent 4 different audio clips out to 52 (possible more) different artists.

    "Each artist participating in this collection received original Pyramids music with no instructions other than to make a new work from any or all of the sounds provided along with anything else they wanted to add to the mix. All forms of manipulation were encouraged and utilized. ‘Wvndrkmmer’ contains fifty-two pure interpretations of the same music, which was not so much a song, but four separate, cooperating textures."

    The resulting collaberation was titled WVNDRKMMER and sold as a limited release cassette collection.

    I may or may not have all of it in MP3 format… ;-)

  8. Kevin Devine - Ballgame

    A good man doesn’t drink
    And I’ve been drinking alone
    So what does that make me?

    My hands they always shake
    And no one’s calling my phone
    So what does that make me?

    And I know the kid with his guitar
    So drunk and anxious
    Has been done to death
    So tell me what hasn’t
    I’ll try it

    Because I’m selfish enough to wanna get better
    But I’m backwards enough not to take any steps to get there

    And when you realize it’s a pattern
    And not a phase
    It’s what you’ve become and it’s what you will stay
    That’s ballgame

    'Cause I don't got room in my life for anyone else
    And I’ve driven away all the people that could help
    And I still don’t even know what I need to do to fix myself

    There’s a clamp around my chest
    That tightens every time I lapse into
    Another sorry story

    About my miserable collapse
    A bronze box I keep encased in glass
    And dust off whenever I want your pity

    'Cause lately I've had to come to grips with scope and figure
    How my problems stack up in a world two steps from ruin
    (Or maybe it’s rapture)

    Well, either way, I realize that my shit’s about as small as it could be
    But that makes me feel worse for even feeling this bad in the first place

    'Cause there's a war starting soon, and all the flags'll be waving
    Daniel’s 20-year-old friend will be ready, and willing, and waiting
    He’s a Marine and he told me

    And that makes me sad
    Really, really fucking sad
    But at least he’ll act

    I’ll just bite my tongue and then say, “Daniel you wish him luck
    or pray that he comes back for his mother’s sake”,
    and then I’ll drink those thoughts away
    I’ve gotten good at that

    And when you realize it’s a pattern
    And not a phase
    It’s what you’ve become and it’s what you will stay
    That’s ballgame

  9. Circa Survive - Meet Me in Montauk

  10. Maybeshewill - Co-Conspirators

    Well, you know, so much of the time we’re just lost
    We say, “Please, God, tell us what is right, tell us what is true”
    I mean, there is no justice
    The rich win, the poor are powerless
    We become tired of hearing people lie
    And after a time we become dead, a little dead
    We think of ourselves as victims, and we become victims
    We become, we become
    We become weak, we doubt ourselves, we doubt our beliefs, and we doubt the law
    But today you are the law
