Sucking at Blogging

I continue to suck at blogging, and continue to have no excuse. And yet, I continue to write on occasion (messages like this) in order to exhort all to keep the faith. I'll be back, just as soon as I have the time and I figure out what the hell I write this damn thing for anyway.

I'm in Mass. at the moment with Beth, visiting (and meeting) her family--most importantly her brand spanking new nephew--and friends. We've been sweeping back and forth across the state, east to west and west to east, and we're currently in Auburn, MA, visting with her mother.

Along the way, we've been stopping into used bookstores, as I'm trying to get rid of a number of books that I cleaned out of my parents' house on the way up here. Luck has not been overly kind, though I have gotten rid of one (out of four) box and replaced it with five books that I'm very excited to dive into.

We'll be back in Asheville by the end of the week, and I"ll surely have some photos to share of our trip, as well as some photos of some new art pieces that I've been working on.

Oh, and next week I start taking a pottery class (with Beth as teacher), so I"ll sure have much to share in that regard.

More soon.

Sirius.B has been voted the 3rd Best Indie Band in Asheville. A step up, I'd say, from 3rd Best Unknown Band in last year's contest.

Voting and tallying was conducted by the Mountain Xpress, Asheville's premier arts and entertainment weekly. Check it out:

Mountain Xpress

Thanks to all who voted, and for those who are local, come on out and see us on October 24th at Stella Blue. We'll be playing with The South French Broads and Vortex Park (a great band from Atlanta). Bring your friends and enemies alike!

Well, once again a great deal of time has passed since my last post.

I feel like I'm going to confession when I apologize and explain myself like that. Let's just say that I've been busy with other things and the blog has not been a priority of late. Continue checking every once in a while, and don't lose faith. I'm still here.

In the meantime, I'm back with much better (and more) photographs of my recent foray into painting. Unfortunately this is not all of them, or better said, unfortunately, I don't have pictures of all of my paintings. There are a few new ones, and others have been given away as gifts and so are not here to photograph.

Xavi (my roommate, friend, bandmate) took the pictures.

The Onion

I'll try and have a new and original post soon, but in the meantime, check out this article that my friend Sturd sent to me:

2001 Article from The Onion (the "fake" newspaper)

I'll tell you Hwut, that's some prescient s@#t.
