Oh! What glorious FIRE OIL!(?)

What a wondrous day! Spent playing Plants Vs. Zombies (which I conquered today FYI), wandering around Wal-Greens, exploring an extraordinarily interesting Harvest Fest, and creating a delicious/nutritious meal in under an hour.
Pretty great eh?

Well, I think so.

On the cooking note, we've started a Recipe blog in which anyone is invited to contribute. I hope you all do. it should be awesome, I added the link to my links section.

Here's a look at our first contribution to the blog! And tonight's dinner. Which is inside of me. Right now. Gross.

One week

before school starts. For most of my friends, this is their last weekend free. Ah, the perks of community college.

Tonight is going to be a great night. How? Well, Team Z has the pleasure of playing the 2nd annual Overnight reunion show. I'm stoked. I love them and their music. So, if by some chance you are reading this the day of posting, come to the Taylair tonight and have a good time.

In other news, Zagadka will be playing with Dear and the Headlights next month. Woohoo! Another awesome band. I'd love to share some great music with y'all so I've got 3 things in mind.

2 having to do with this post:



And the last, just something I've been pretty into as of late:

Finally home

So tour was awesome. Met tons of people. All of them were awesome and super nice. Big thanks to Mike and Darren, Tyler, Seri and Spencer, Jeff, Tom Mc, Byron, Charlie and the fam, and everyone else I forgot. We had a killer time with you all and can't wait to come back and see you again.

I am STOKED on the new David Bazan record right now. It feels so much different than any Pedro or Headphones for that matter. It's almost a chronicle of his religious inner conflict? At least that's what all the reviews are reading. I think I may see what Pitchfork has to say. They hate him. HOW CAN ANYONE HATE DAVID BAZAN?


Have a listen.

BONUS!!!!!!!!!!! His first solo EP

Aaaaaaaand I'm even more spent...

The drive from San Diego to Phoenix again was killer. I am BEAT. But it's been an amazing time. We played WEST FEST about half an hour ago and are waiting to hear Lanterns and the Constellation Branch. I'm pretty stoked for both sets. The bands are awesome. You should check them out.

We head up to NORCAL tomorrow and luckily have the day off. I'm super stoked to meet up with Byron and the dudes of Caulfield. Check them out too.

Links.... acquired.

So we're dragging our feet in Phoenix. We were going strong with our heads held high, then the A/C crapped out... kept driving... truck started to smell funny... kept driving... smoke started coming from the hood. So... needless to say, we stopped at a Shell station in Phoenix AZ. Hands down, that was the hottest, sweatiest, most uncomfortable I've been in my life.

Good news is, I now know how to change a fan belt (though that did NOT fix the problem). So we're now at Jameson's cousins house laying in a room with a fake arm that Matt swears "grabbed" his ankle as we walked out earlier. Oh, it has been a day! Hopefully we can get up early and sniff out a cheap mechanic. Until then, enjoy the smooth jams of my main man, Jim James!

I'm spent.

The first day of tour. Tucson is awesome (aside from the heat). Everyone we've ran into has been super nice and given us nothing but great response and hospitality. I feel like a jerk because I called Tim smart-ass. Why? I'm not really sure. Hope he accepts my apology.

Currently we're staying at Mike and Darren's place. House is awesome, super nice dudes. Darren used to play in the Bled, so I'll leave you with some of that.

Hopefully, I will be able to post tomorrow.

So today is my last day home before tour. I'm super excited. The show last night ruled. HARD. We definitely are being sent off in the right way. It's really amazing the community we have all created in Albuquerque in the music scene. It all is beginning to feel like one big family. That's awesome.

One of my favorite bands, KIDCRASH, posted a new song on their MySpace. Stoked because they're going to post a new track every Friday until SNACKS is released. I think it's awesome and you all should go have a listen.

Other than that, be well friends. I'll do my best to keep up with updates on the tour and I look forward to meeting those of you I haven't!
