RIP Craig Lucas

Craig Lucas was a huge influence on my work and life. he's a major reason why i still create work today. when i was a young, lost art student he taught how to think in ways i never imagined before. he also taught me to not give a shit about what others thought of my work. just be happy and produce. he will be greatly missed.

Daniel Higgs did all the vocals. so...THIS IS AMAZING!

At least he had time to get his hawk up.

Jacob and I (he’s on the right) watching KEELHAUL last night. great show! UNSANE was amazing too. they played the entire Scattered, Smothered, and Covered record. i wont be needing therapy anytime soon.

getting ready for the walleye show.

Floor or Liars?  that was the question.  i could walk to Floor.  Floor was $1 cheaper.  my good friends Sofa King Killer would be there.  i’ll probably never get the chance to see Floor again.  decision was made.  missed the first band.  walked in to see fat guys with beards playing some form of metal.  some girl went bonkers.  she must have been from Parma, OH.  all i could think about was what song was Floor going to open with and what was the meaning behind a rainbow striped number 13 tattoo on metal bands guitarist?  evil gay?  just as i’m imagining Floor opening with Scimitar a band that is not Floor hops on stage.  shit.  one more band.  one more horribly boring band.  finally Floor takes the stage and opens with Scimitar!  dreams do come true.  no one does pop this heavy.  the sound was great.  they played the entire self titled release and a few tracks off of Dove.  highlights were Tales of Lolita, Return to Zero, and Downed Star.  what impressed me the most was their drummer.  who knew an INXS hair style could play so hard?  the crowd was great.  often singing along loudly.  perfect set.  hopefully they’ll reunite again.
