I have a tattoo that I regret big time.

When I was 18, I got a giant tattoo of Les Claypool on my arm. Fast forward a few years and I only jam-out to Chopin and death metal. Sorry Les Claypool.
 
I make a lot of noise in the bedroom. Usually with my 6 string, 7 string, acoustic, or classical guitar. Sometimes even the ol' banjo. When I'm not aimlessly picking away, I'm probably contemplating my next meal–– I'm always hungry. 
 
When I retire, I wanna move out west and live in the woods. How shall I feed myself out there in the wilderness? Easy: helmet, shoulder pads. Watch out, Montana caribou herd.

Recent Favorite

Colors 2: Between the Buried and Me

 

Last year, BTBAM released a sequel to my favorite album of theirs. And man, this thing is one pummeling machine of juicy, proggy, goodness. Genre-bending tracks like 'Revolution in Limbo' and 'Bad Habits' offer catchy choruses, jazzy interludes, and brutal breakdowns. This is one for the ages, folks.

What I'm Reading Now

Soap, Sex, and Cigarettes

A compelling read about the history of advertising. Not so much about Bill Burnbach, but more so about how consumerism offers our ego a way out of the dark.

Recent Favorite

The Power of the Dog

 

This nail-biting, psychological Western touches on themes of anger and trauma. But a sneaky act of revenge that tests even the most attentive of movie-watchers brings it home. Best Picture? Duh.
