packing for a trip: i never know what to bring until i remember i don't need that much really.
was able to get these tour posters off in the nick of time.... go see the dudes vetiver and fruit bats and pick up one of these snazzy posters whilst enjoying some jams.
i am leaving for australia today for one month to do this. this blog will be turning into a daily journal and travelogue. none more stoked.

some things are just too dang precious to capture on film
it appears to me that these hanging vines are trying to draw some mega-circles in the grime of the waterway. do it, vines!
ruining john's meditative ancient garden stroll
really into the primping station at some of the train stops. primp on, primpers!
our carpenter was the best dude and did a really mean beavis impersonation. what a time to be alive!

art show opens today in durham, north carolina with my buddy mark taylor.
This art show is by two friends who explore similar themes and ideas in their artwork and like the way their drawings look together.We think of these drawings as scenes from a story that are given a title, a framework, and a moment for contemplation and reflection. Many of these drawings were made quickly while the feeling was being felt and in quick succession. These words are little poems and titles and plot devices. We really enjoy showing you these drawings and we hope that you like looking at them.
all the essential information can be found two posts down.
these drawings are there right now hanging out.

hello eastern southerners, myself and my good friend mark taylor are showing drawings in durham, north carolina on friday. this is the poster for it.
here's a funny thing: it's at another buddy's gallery and salon called rock, paper, scissors. the last time mark and i worked together was at a gallery called rock, paper, scissors in oakland. the two are unrelated. cosmic!
i made a big batch of small drawings and these are some of them. you may have seen some others in my blog posts from the past week or two. guess who got some black and red sumi ink in japan? me.
we also made a little booklet for the show that will be there on premises. there were grand plans to make an appearance and play music at the opening, but, alas, reality has set in and a trip to NC is not in the cards for myself or mark. we are sending these images as our proxies.
we're in the pages! the goal is to show a whole bunch of drawings and keep it fun, interesting, and inexpensive for people who are looking or taking home some art. i think mark and i's drawing fit together really well. they are funny and deep depending on who's looking at what. or not. there's gonna be well over 100 things to look at. easy peasy!
friendship and linkage

man, i i used to love this band. i found this video by accident this morning and was reminded of how into guv'ner i was. their guitar player had the raddest and weirdest sounds. i think it was only possible to make those chords between 1985-97.
the year: 1996. the place: susdy malone's in cincinatti. it was a weird bar what was also a laundromat and was the closest place to muncie that had good shows. plus you could get into bars if you were 18 in ohio. still, it was 2.5 hours away. me and some buddies drove over there and it was amazing! you know how rock shows are when you're 20? they are the everything. there was only a couple people there. i felt bad for the band but stoked for us because the band was really nice and played "cameo" when we yelled for it. then they took a picture with us. such sweet summer memories. i miss indie rock, man. that shit was fun.
that's me on the lower right with the dude touching my head. and that's the lady from cat power in the middle there. she opened up the show. i saw her take a shirt out of a dryer right after, too. she stole that shirt, man.

here is a picture of yoko repping this totebag from luna that i foisted upon her before we got on the bus for the airport. yoko is a rad lady and she took really good care of us. wicked bbq skills, too.
also, i put up some drawings over at the old shoppe. cleaning out the archives a little bit. i hope you are doing good.
