35 days, and counting…

Uncategorized | February 19th, 2013

Feeling accomplished and wigged out at the same time…so much shit to do, so little time to get it done. I love traveling, but when I know I’ll be gone for about 5 months solid, I feel like I’m forgetting everything. Already been on a tour sleep schedule for the last few weeks. 35 days until I’m outta here. Less than 24 hours ago, I legitimized everything. Zebrana Bastard Industries is now an official business. I now own Zebrana Bastard, Button Whore, Dirty Vending, Porn ‘N Posies, Becka Baker Button Maker, and Stalwart Steel. All of which are nestling cozy… Continue Reading →

Project Whore

Uncategorized | January 31st, 2013

So there’s so many more facets to me, and I’ve decided I’m going to continue to explore them. Zebrana Bastard (Eclectic Blues) – My heart, my soul, my everything. No longer on the back burner…this is my touring project…my purge…I’m not hiding behind a bass anymore, instead it’s helping me to stand strong and push forward. Bastard Child (Punk/Metal/Comedy) – Most who know me are familiar with my old band, which recently got back together. We’ll be playing our first show as being officially back together at the New Frontier Lounge on Friday, February 15th, in honor of Honkey Bastard’s(our… Continue Reading →

The Problem With Xerox

Uncategorized | January 31st, 2013

So as many of you know, I’ve been bitching for the last two weeks about my printer. This is the last email I sent to Xerox Tech Support after they suggested I turn off the machine and unplug it, remove the toner, shake it up, put the toner back in, plug in the machine, and turn it back on to resolve an issue I’m having. A quick recap on my last two weeks. 2 weeks ago (January 17th, 2013), I receive new ink, the very first time I’ve ever put new ink in my brand new printer. It tells me… Continue Reading →

So I’m staring at 2 broken printers, and 8 boxes of ink…and I’m laughing. After two weeks, it’s like you just can’t be angry anymore. And that’s just the thing…nothing is built to last really these days. Even expensive equipment that you haven’t had for a full 6 months and have barely used. At some point, you just gotta look around and go well…what’s next. I’ve been so fucking pissed off the last couple of weeks in dealing with this, that now it feels like sending emails to Xerox Tech Support is just another part of my daily routine. Email,… Continue Reading →

Breathe Easy

Uncategorized | January 29th, 2013

You get to this point where everything feels like a dream you’re just kinda floating through, and you wonder…has it been too long? Have I lost my edge? I’m so fucking broke man…and you think you’re crazy…but at the same time, you’re like fuck that…fuck all that negative bullshit. Truth is you’ll be fine…just breathe deep ’cause you got this…you were born for this moment and all the others that follow. It’s in your blood, it’s the driving force that’s always been there…pulling you ever forward into the next turn. I really miss driving though. Sitting up here in this… Continue Reading →

Roots of Nervousness

Uncategorized | January 27th, 2013

I’m specifically speaking about the process of a new song…from the moment you first jot the lines of a few lyrics down on paper to the moment where you take it live to a room full of strangers, and all the nerves that encompass it. When I first wrote the song Yellow Monarch, it took me years until it finally saw the light of day, let alone a stage. I first performed it alone in my living room with a shitty web cam, then posted it on YouTube. Then when I finally performed it for the first time this last… Continue Reading →

More Awesomesauce!

Uncategorized | January 27th, 2013

So just got Brooklyn, NY locked in…Portland is about locked in too. Stoked for this tour. I’m really looking forward to meeting folks I’ve been talking with online for years but never had any face time with, and looking forward to reconnecting with friends I’ve met on the road prior and then some. Been listening to Aaron Baca’s band, Dead Remedy, from Portland. They are fucking awesome! I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Aaron at the Red Room one night for one of his solo gigs, but have never heard his band before. I’m currently working on… Continue Reading →

New Dates Added

Uncategorized | January 27th, 2013

Boston, MA & Joplin, MO have been added to the list of dates Jeff and I will be hitting starting in April. Shit’s hard work, but rewarding when you get that yes after all the ignored emails. lol I posted a couple videos up on the youtube from my cd release show that took place on the 19th. And I’m waiting for cd baby to process my album so it will be available to download digitally. Once that clears, I will be donating 50% off all proceeds to my favorite charity. Due to legal reasons, I’m not allowed to say… Continue Reading →

Focus is important…especially when it’s super easy to get distracted. I make so many lists, it’s ridiculous. I think the sticky notes was quite possibly the best product that came attached to windows 7. It makes it easy for me to keep track of what’s important, and then when I’m done, it’s erased from my desktop forever. Much more efficient than a million little pieces of paper strewn about the house to keep track of. Played a few local shows here recently…kinda weird to play a bunch in Washington, but it felt good too. Very eager to leave again. Got… Continue Reading →

What Is My Message?

Uncategorized | January 23rd, 2013

Be who you are, however you are. Cut the crap, cut the bullshit, cut what you think others expect you to be, and just be you. I believe if everyone could just be who they are, however they are, it would be a lot easier to find compatible friends and relationships that work. Your life would be more fulfilling because you are no longer wasting all that time and energy creating and maintaining a facade. At the same time, it’s important to let others be how they are as well.
