“Me on the drums”

Wednesday, July 5th, 2006

I took full advantage of all of the musical instruments that are available to patrons of the Experience Music Project while attending the final party of Gnomedex 6. Here’s a short video of me on drums (Matt is playing guitar). First time drumming… yeah man. I’m having some problems embedding this, so here’s a link [...]

Revisiting Blur

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

A year or so ago I heard about an upcoming reality show, entitled “Long Way Round“, that featured Ewan McGregor and his friend, Charley Boorman, where they rode a pair of motorcycles around the world (literally ~ from England to New York going east).

“You could hear Paul’s foot tapping from the very last row…”

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

Friday night, Liz and I had a “date night”. Big deal, right? Well, I can count on one hand how many times just Liz and I have gone out since Maggie was born (15 months, now?)… And one of those times was to visit our accountant and have our taxes done, so that kinda says [...]

While I’m on this Uncle Tupelo kick…

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

this seems to a pretty fitting song lately. I have to say that it’s one of my favorite songs done live by Jeff Tweedy and/or Wilco. “We’ve Been Had” by Uncle Tupelo (off the Anodyne album) There’s a guitar leaning on a Marshall stack Used to sound like the sun on the horizon Now I [...]

Someone find me some Uncle Tupelo merchandise

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

Yes, I know they broke up years ago, but all I have to show for them is a sticker that came in the Uncle Tupelo Anthology cd a couple of years back. I would love to have another sticker or two and even a t-shirt. Anyone know where the hell I can find one? My [...]

I’m really digging Track A Tiger

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

I don’t know where I first heard of them, but I cannot get enough of the three songs they made available for download off of their website. I’m hoping I get this cd for my birthday. :) Scratch that, I just saw that you can buy it on iTunes. That literally just happened in the [...]

I’m in the mood for…

Friday, May 12th, 2006

red wine and listening to The Decemberists on a rainy night. For some reason that sounds really, really appealing. don’t know why, but it does. I don’t know where that idea came from other than me listening to some Decemberists as we speak.  yeah, i’m weird and it’s one of those days…  :)

Phil Lesh speaks about Ryan Adams

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

Via AnsweringBell.com: I love playing with Ryan because he’s fearless; because he doesn’t have to do anything the same way twice; because every idea he throws out in a jam is a little gem that cries out “polish me”; because he has about nine hundred voices that he can use like a Bene Gesserit; because [...]
