i'm too tired not to be with you

i admit it. i95 from dc to richmond broke me yesterday. what should have been maybe a two hour jaunt turned into a 6 hour nightmare. i, seriously, cant believe that there are that many people traveling that corridor. to those of you who travel it regularly, i applaud, but dont envy you. not one single fuckin bit.

other than that the vacation was a much needed respite from my everyday life – i guess thats what vacations are for. we ate a lot, drank a lot, fished a lot and shot the shit a lot. it was very relaxing to say the least. although, i could have taken a few more naps. i also kayaked for the first time. which was a helluva lot of fun. i can definitely see myself getting into it on a regular basis. we got to be very friendly with a black lab named dante as he would swim across our little channel, which was filled with jellyfish, to come visit us just about every day. while i am glad to be home, i am going to need another 2 week vacation to recuperate from my one week vacation. if you are feeling a bit voyeuristic here are some pics from said vacation.

am i the only one watching brett michael’s rock of love? i almost hate myself for actually finding michael’s quite likable. go sam and/or jes! fuck lacey!

i didnt open one email this past week. needless to say, i didnt get a chance to listen to anything new. so, here is some stuff i am remotely familiar with and/or at least sounded interesting.

firstly, here is the first song off of josh ritter’s upcoming the historical conquests of josh ritter, which is out on tuesday. historically, i have not been a fan of mr ritters work, but i am diggin this track quite a bit. so, we’ll see how this record fare’s in turning me into a fan.

here are a couple of remixes of the one am radio track’s by tourmates the lymbrc system. if you have not listened to the one am radio before i can highly recommend his most recent release, this too will pass and a name writ in water.

i cant see anything good coming out of naming yourself after one of the most cinematic bad asses every created but i have been known to be wrong.

i found it hard to turn pash away after reading that they were described as “a dismemberment plan meets kelly clarkson type of pop.” they were also likened to one of my favorite 90′s bands, velocity girl. still even armed with this knowledge i have yet to actually listen to em, but i will.

call me a pussy but when i heard of chris whitley’s death i got a little teary eyed. no other artist moved me the way chris did/does. no other artist could shake the foundations of my soul like chris could and most likely no other artist will again in such a way.

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
