september fun tine!

hey oiloids!
real psyched to say that i just bought our airplane tickets to europe! yippee! if you see me there, say hello. i'll be the guy freaking out at how old all the buildings are.
this has been a weird indoor summer for me, and i'm glad the other two oiloins have gotten out and snapped some super rad photos of the outdoors for me to look at so i don't forget about the sun. i got a head transplant (throat surgery) two weeks ago but that was surprisingly a breeze, and i'm back in action now doing everything as normally as if nothing had happened, except with a memory of an eternity in Tube Land, which was where my "spirit" was when i was drugged for the surgery. there weren't literal tubes, but everything was made of tubes, and i knew it, felt it, lived it, saw it. if you're familiar with superstring theory, think of this in terms of that, but instead it's tube theory- and when you're in tube land you even feel like a tube. Tube Land, everyone should visit at least once.

before we go to europe, we're going to play a show at holocene in portland with some of the oiliest musicians in town. i'm seriously so stoked to play with these guys. this show has been sort of a fantasy for me for a long time, and there's going to be some real neat installations there to boot.

beach days.

haven't been in summer hangout mode much lately, but we had a giant beach party posse recently. the sun and beach hangout fried my brains like the eggs in those "this is your brain on drugs" commercials.
