Things I like today. Followed by things I do not.
It took me years, but I finally like My Morning Jacket. I don’t know what happened. Maybe I grew old enough to appreciate their gentleness. Maybe I finally gave them enough of a shot to grow on me. But their new album is quite all right. Listen to it on NPR.org/music if you wanna. Other things that are getting me through this week: 1. Memories of my friend Hot Dog’s wedding to his...
A weeklong hangover with only two nights of...
Well, well. That was my last Homegrown Music Festival. At least in that capacity. In Duluth, once a year, during the first week of May, we throw a weeklong party celebrating the creativity of our citizens. There’s live music every night, all over town. Just shy of 200 bands play per year, and many are turned away. There are art shows, film festivals, and other weird shit goes on all week long....
I'm a neglectful blogger...
I can’t seem to form and maintain a habit of writing on this thing. Mostly because I don’t really have much of anything to say anymore. I’m becoming so misanthropic and surmounted with disdain for humanity that everything I say is loaded with negativity and anger. Someday soon, I’ll reach an age where I don’t give a shit if what I have to say pisses you off. I’m...
I know it's spring because...
…for some odd reason, I really want the world to honk my boobies. Or motorboat them. And my midwestern sensibilities make me ashamed of this urge. Yaaaay, SPRING!
VIDEO: Low - "Try to Sleep"
minneapolisfuckingrocks: These guys (Low, I mean)? From Duluth. Good shit comes from Duluth, motherfuckers. And by “from Duluth”, I don’t mean they lived here for a minute and then left for bigger cities. I mean they LIVE here. Currently. Alan is a friend of mine. GOOD SHIT COMES FROM DULUTH. You should visit sometime.
Reissued music that won't disappoint you. →
So, my husband is a musician. This is a link to one of his solo projects, wherein he made a bunch of electronic-rock music in our shitty apartment, recorded it himself, and threw it up on the internets. Listen if you want to. And you know you want to.

Sure, take taxpayer money and toss $81K a year at some little boy just because his daddy greased your palm during your campaign. Recall this sonofabitch, please.

I am Irish. I find green beer to be silly and almost offensive.
I have no time for creativity anymore, so I'm a...
Hi, Tumblr. Sorry I have been neglecting you. I’ve been really busy. Busy fighting the man in Wisconsin. Busy with March Madness. Busy with artwork that is way, way overdue. Busy trying to get my illness under control before it kills me. Busy trying to enjoy life a little more. If it makes you feel any better, I barely have time for Twitter anymore, either. I hope you’ve been well,...
