after being pelted with quarter-sized hail, i'm finally home and comfortable. life has been beautiful to me lately in the smallest of ways. i'm breathing easier as shit seems to fall into place a little.

i have an interview next week that i'm taking very seriously. i really want a new job; anything that connects to what i went to school for. i'm excited to finally have an important interview.. i've had mostly crappy ones for jobs i wasn't particularly interested in or excited about. this one i am both.

Jake Hellman and i have been playing music together for a few weeks. its mostly fast funky stuff. well, faster than anything i've ever played on guitar anyway. i'm singing and playing guitar, while Jake is sticking to the sexy rhythms. we're calling ourselves "Mister Perfect" for now. Jacob Miller will be joining us on Sunday.. he's interested in playing second guitar. we are all pretty excited about this .. the music seems to come out pretty naturally. just need to find a permanent drummer.

my little label Dunkenstein released a split CD featuring The Olympia Three and The Parade Schedule a month ago, and I'm almost sold out of the small run i ordered. that's nice to know.. this stupid band (the olympia three) is about as easy to manage as anything i've been a part of. we almost never practice, and when i write new stuff, its so basic that anthony and jake can paint their decorations on pretty effortlessly. we were asked to play Germantown Shotgun Fest again, so that should be fun. also, we'll be playing at Cumberland Brews sometime in June. don't know when exactly.

lately i've been particularly into
