The Day the Pony Express Died

Yes, it's true. I've relinquished my tenacious hold on the eighteenth century. I've acquired a Facebook. I feel a bit like I've sold my soul to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Your welcome. Does this mean we can finally be friends?

New Photographs

We'll have to postpone our collective meditations and notes on life for the moment. But I wanted to let you know I've put some new photographs up on the Flickr site. Enjoy.

Be Demanding

In the spirit of democracy, I've decided to put up this little widget on the sidebar that gives you the opportunity to demand that I come to your town and play a show. Basically, it gives me a chance to see the vox populi spelled out in good ol' internet stats, which, as we all know, are highly reflective of what's really happening in the world. I'm intending to get out and play a weighty passel of shows in '09, and if you want one near you, speak up.

Let it be known, however, that if there's not a cafe or bar or church where I can play, I might just call you up and ask to play in your living room. We could make a house concert of it.

Old Skin Horse

I've never spent a year of my life on anything. Unless you count school, to which I did not apply a great deal of focus, or growing a beard, which happened because I neglected to shave, I've put most of my time into short, easy endeavors, until now. I've tried to keep this a secret up to this point, because whenever I let the cat out of the bag before it's time, my plans seem to disintegrate like instant oatmeal with too much water, a la James chapter 4. So, after being as vague and aloof as I could be about this for a year of my life....

I am so excited about this record. I'm not feeling particularly well, as I've caught some sort of throat cold, but even though my candy coating is a little stale at this point, I feel a bit like a little schoolgirl with a new pony. A pink one, with a white horn. I've thought this out, as you can see. The lack of time is about the only thing that's keeping me from driving all over town and handing these out to people I know. And people I don't, for that matter. Here's the skinny, though. You can download this at today. And in a few days, as I understand it, and according to the process, you'll be able to download it on iTunes.

So please, download away. And leave a review if you enjoy it, or if you think it needs work. If I need anything, I need good dialogue about the pursuit of excellence. Thank you for listening. Turn the lights down, the dial up, and enjoy.
