Practicing Escape Velocity

It’s Tuesday afternoon, I need some exercise, I think I’ll go for a walk and explore some more of this planet 🌎. I’ve been hunched over a guitar for a couple hours and my back needs to bend the other way for a moment.

Before And After

I keep seeing posts of folks comparing an old photo of themselves to a current pic. Here is mine, on the left is me in the Cosmic Microwave Background a little over 13 billion years ago. On the right is me just a few weeks ago. It’s important to moisturize.

TBT Prep Work

For my throwbackthursday pic I dug up a photo of me and Peter Buck on a break from recording my previous disc. R.E.M. are legends to me, so this project was super special. A couple of the tunes we recorded are on Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2FlPe3k

It’s Getting Warm In Here

Our mixing engineer is back from holiday to finish off the last two tracks of the EP, I’m super excited to hear them, he’s already created some magic on the previous two. 🥇🧘‍♂️☺️

Alchemical Return

I lost my laptop near a homeless encampment in downtown Seattle, hundreds of people walking by it, a supremely kind gentleman collected it, returned it to me, no reward wanted. 🔎✅🙈Fuse some love with gratitude and free tickets to all my future shows and and we’ll approximate my appreciation.🥂 yes my hands are a little grimy and calloused; lots of guitar playing.

Christmas Isn’t Over

I found McCartney’s ‘Venus And Mars’, ‘Wild Life’, and ‘Tug Of War’ on vinyl, there are so many gems on these, I’m in Heaven. ‘Wings Over America’ and ‘Ram’ are still my favs, but these are awesome too.

Grooving With Joe

We lost Joe Strummer sixteen years ago, and there’s not a day goes by when I don’t think about him. The Clash are clearly his main legacy, but I also adore his later music with the Mescaleros. ‘Global A-Go-Go’ spinning now.
