huzzaahhh!!!!!!!
we're back in the third dimension- aka back from teaching rock n roll camp in seattle. it was craaaaazy! john will have more on that later. 
right now i'm stoke city, usa 'cause we just got a sneak peak at our album artwork. 
i couldnt' be happier.   
we're working with our new friend aidan koch.  she's definitely one of my favorite new artists, and she's from right here in portland!  squeee-103!

speaking of aidan, there was this kid named aidan frye in gradeschool that rode the same bus as my brother ryan and i.  he was totally bad to the bone.  ryan and aidain used to get in fights on the bus and aidan would always scratch ryan's face real bad.   i'm pretty sure he's got some scars from that...aidan looked like scut farkus from a christmas story.

also!!!!!
we just played pdx pop now-  it was number one-fun fun fun!!!!
we literally drove straight from 2D camp to portland, rehearsed our set once, headed over to rotture, set up and played.  it was a crazy day but it was aaaawesome!
here's some pics n stuff.

3, 2, 1, NOGGIN!


After 2 of the most eventful and exciting weeks I could have asked for, including tourism at the Grand Canyon (majestic!), Mount Rushmore (small! very very funny!), and so much more, we were welcomed home by all our friends in the best possible way.  We spent all of yesterday BBQ'n the best durn veggie burgers in all the land, hand prepared by John o' Inside Voices, and celebrated being True Americans by lighting off the most hilarious possible firework: The Exploding Bin Laden Noggin.  Yes, you read correctly.  A firework effigy of Mr. Infamous with skulls in his eyes and dagger in hand, and when lit, he screams for 3 seconds and then his head explodes!  Thank you, Wyoming!  
Our show at Valentines in Portland last night with Inside Voices and The Dead Trees was squbbady squeen, and it was nice to see all of our friends again.  Ready, Set, Noggin!
