The Cuervo Gold

just got back from bama kids...had a blast...saw a funk band in a bar in my home town that did funkadelic songs, plus white rappers would freestyle...alot, actually...then at the bar down the street there was a sublime cover band!...complete with white dude dreads...why did i ever move away?...they didn't appreciate me yelling at them to play the silver bullet band, but what can u do? a few 45s for me and brad's triumphant return as the shittiest sports themed dj's ever...its at daddy's this sunday after the game...just remember that we were asked to do this so no booing when we don't play the shins or whatever people like these days...think more like "i can't drive 55" and you won't be so bummed...aside from that i really missed new york for 5 days and i'm happy to be back among friends...thanks to everyone who came to the show last was overwhelmingly awesome to have all my loved ones there and the strangers i just have to yell at tim harrington for breaking the f'n store.

For Cereal Ya'll

used to have a boys club when i first moved to nyc...guys i graduated with who wanted to make art, was called dropframe...woulda been cool but egos are a funny thing, they generally kill these kinds of communal efforts to try to pool a group of creative assets to make something bigger than the individual...i guess it's the kind of thinking you can rationalize while living in a bubble in college, thinking that you can take your name off something and still have all the glory...i don't speak to 50% of these guys anymore, but it isn't because of hard feelings or bitterness...i chalk it up to growing pains, which would make me the "boner" of the group...since i just wanted to draw all the time, i never really felt like what i was doing could co-exsist in a communal effort...i was outside the family structure, a "boner" if you will...sorry to make that crappy reference twice but i'm enjoying myself...i guess i'm talking about this because i did alot of drawings with "dropframe" in the title and i just wanted to explain where it came from before i post them...and to finally write about that part of my life that i can barely remember now...anywho.

Never Too Early

to get going on advertising art events!...i know it's a bit early but i gotta get it on your brain somehow.

Roll Away...The Dew

got a little weird this weekend kids...a football playoff party turned into a trip to see a grateful dead cover band that turned into some of the funniest things ive seen in a while...these funny things led to being ejected from said cover band performance...then we pretended to be yuppies from out of town at mars bar, not that hard to pull off or far from the truth btw...i awoke sunday to tremendous pain but my name got printed in the nytimes for the upcoming calvacade at iheart on the i called my mom and made her buy one...pretty good one.
