wrist splints n tape recorders

It snowed here in Nashville. Not crazy blizzard shit, but enough to make all these southies freak the fuck out. So, of course, I've been feeling a little superior since I'm accustomed to this shit, even offered to go in to work early cos the chick i work with from California was scared to leave her house, for fear of what, i don't know cos it only snowed 2 inches! So, yeah, there I was walking into Vanderbilt feeling like the smartest motherfucker ever until I slipped and fell HARD my first step in the door! I'm talking feet over your head slip n fall style, instinctively using my poor left hand to break the impact. I felt like a major dummy after that, though I don't know why Vanderbilt didn't have mats on the inside of entrances so you DON'T slip and sprain your fucking wrist on the cold slick linoleum. I'm gonna assume it's because snow is a mystical substance down here, urban legend shit. Whatever, now I'm jacked up in a wrist brace thing, crying every once in a while cos I'm temporarily crippled and it fucking hurts like a bitch.

Anyways, since I can't work for a few days (at least until the swelling goes down), I have some time to hen-peck this blog entry for you.

I haven't posted anything from my tour last month, here are some videos of bands I played with:



HUMAN BEAST


SETH & RILEY


OUTER SPACE


EARN


GEORGE MYERS


dYsgeniX




All of these bands are incredible. It was such a pleasure and an honor to play with them!

Also, my friend Rob sent me his band LACO$TE's new video. Check it out:

and then there was cake

Yes, so, it's been awhile. I had a birthday, recorded a new Unicorn Hard-on tape, went on a small tour around Thanksgiving in Providence... I've got a lot to share.

My birthday present from my friend Leslie Keffer was a ticket to go see Rye Rye perform at the Cannery Ballroom here in Nashville. Keff and I were tweeting up a storm about our anticipation and got a couple tweet backs from Rye Rye herself! She performed 5-6 songs, Sunshine, Wassup Wassup, Hardcore Girls, Bang, Shake It To The Ground, and I think one more I'm blanking on now. My footage is bouncy because it's impossible to stand still. You gotta dance. Well, except for the fools right in front of me who for some reason thought it was important to get as close as possible to the stage even though they clearly looked bored as hell. I don't get you people who go to shows, hog the front row, then DON'T MOVE! What the hell is wrong with you?




The night before my birthday, there was a show, Human Beast, Father Finger, Malocchio, and Craow. I was kinda pissed that the show was that night because my plan was to do something for my birthday NOT at Betty's this year, but you can't say no to friends. The show ruled, I wish I had more footage to share!
