I miss this band.

Kintaro playing at my old house in Avondale.

I bought this yesterday for 3 dollars. Starsky and Cox are the Tegan and Sara of astrology. Unapologetically hip. Undeniably entertaining. Guilty pleasure read!

Also here's a Terry Gross interview that was recently shared with me. It's with Matt Richdel who is a technology journalist for the New York Times. It's all about the daily informational overload we face with modern technology and its psychological repercussions/results. Really interesting.


I've been knitting lately like it's my job.

Muffin Recipe I made up

1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 tsp. of salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 banana, mashed up
1/2 cup raisins

preheat oven to 400.

mix all dry ingredients. separately, mix all the wet ingredients. add wet to dry and mix well. fill muffin cups half way (if you don't have muffin baking cup liner things be sure to add oil or cooking spray so they don't stick)

bake for 20 minutes.

I made these the other day for the pool party and they were pretty killer. No pictures, but I'm sure I'll make them again soon.

turn the record up

Allison and I started a new band where we control everything and play every instrument. That probably makes us sound like fascists. Autocratic punks. I haven't been this excited about a musical endeavor in a while.

I realize that I've totally neglected this blog. Its in part due to a busy summer full of playing shows and enduring personal crises. It's also because I haven't been working and when I haven't been working, I haven't been properly internetting. Whatever.

We just recorded a new record and during that time I sought personal triumph in all sorts of forms like lemonade Four Loko and channeling Reba McEntire. Transcendent is really the only word to describe it. I can't wait for more people to hear it. It was undoubtedly the best recording experience I've ever had.

Oh yeah:
