I found this record the other day at the thrift store. It looks like it should be the coolest record ever. It has a Service Records feel to it, and the label that put this out is called Passport Records. I guess I was thinking I found an early form of the Embassy from 1980 But it's like a bad rendition of the Talking Heads. Well, at least I have a new piece of art to hang up on my wall.

our favorite!

maybe we're a little behind the times (this came out in 1999). but we just discovered the song 17 Berlin by My Favorite and we're all going crazy. it is very important that you listen to it right away! I actually saw this band play a concert with Travelogue years ago in cleveland, i should have realized then...

On the subject of surfing:


My band, Horse Shoes played at the Pop Mayhem festival in Gainesville Fl last week. It was a fun show because it was the first time I've had an opportunity to see Surfer Blood live. I've been listening (like a crazy person) to their myspace page for months now. They are amazing. I'm going to see as many of their New York City shows as I can. Don't let it slip away:

I Wish I Meant More To You..

I normally hate the idea of covering songs, and I've never even considered it until now. This is just my favorite song in the world. I've never identified with a song more than this. After listening to it twenty times a day for the past few months I think I just came to the conclusion that I couldn't get it out of my system any other way. And the song had such a limited release i felt like it was a real shame that more people hadn't heard it. I don't know that we did it justice, and we certainly weren't trying to make it better or different, maybe we we were just being selfish, but I'm glad of it and I hope you enjoy, or relate to it as well.

Not mush. But alot.

So Jacob invited me to an electronic book. For now Bonfire Kids is going strong. I'm writing a bit. Sending to my partner day by day. Hopefully we will have a release soon. Very soon actually. That's all.

Latest A-ha

What do you think? The scarf did me in.

It's nice that some good things never seem to go away, I think.
