at the drive-in reunion footage
at the drive-in played their first show in 11 years last night in austin, tx. i would love to have been there. here’s some footage if you haven’t seen it yet.
ok i found this band because they covered a parlor mob song. then i watched this video and i kind of love it. the song is called “party on saturday night”.
i created these 3 tracks at home and on tour with the parlor mob. i have a lot more. i don’t know much about styles when it comes to electronic music and what the genres are called and such, so i don’t know what you’d call these or where they fit in. i just like them. none are mixed (really mixed anyway) and none are mastered. they’re not really “finished”...

please stop panicking, liberal and conservative fear mongers alike, you’re giving the rest of us a bad face. your government really doesn’t care about policing your streets, arresting you and assassinating you, though it’s cute you have such a high opinion of yourself. they care about stealing ear-marked tax money out from under your nose, under the guise of a defense budget, so...
my mom is smart
this is a blog my mom posted this morning. i thought i’d share it. Did you hear the joke about when life begins? Considering Initiative 26 on the ballot today in Mississippi, it would play well to revisit this comic sketch.
