Man if the Twins trade Mr. Santana I will be ultra pissed off... Mind you he didnt have his finest year last year.. He is still widely considered the best pitcher in the major and shit.. Don't blow all your chances of getting to the post season to save a few fucking bucks! Serously! COME ON TWINS!

And we are off....

Well yesterday I left for tour with Joe T. and Casper and the Cookies.. Our show last night was very fun in Omaha not that well attendid but Scott was there, Scuds my little sis , our pal Mike, our Old Buddy Joe from Someday never, Landon From Little BRazil and some other who were very nice.. One dude particuarly who bought Joe T. and I shots during our set..
Our set list went...

Magical one
Don't Go
Skoal Vikings (This one brought the house down....)
Thrill (we were awarded a show right before the YOUR FATHER lost part)
Waco (insert another shot here)
Magic Circle (insert long story about Ashley Not going to GBV with me)
Frank Mills (hair) (so pretty Casper sang with joe and I)
RAYGAY ALICE (Scotty called Don so he could listen Mon)

Anyway it was great... fun.. Then Joe and I are at Ashley (my little sis) and her place is great.. and Like my lovely older sis she always has hummus for me.. So we stay up and talked and she showed us her Shot glas collection.. Could Ashley T. and I bought her a shot glass on our Honeymoon and still have given it to her..
but its a wonderful place and she was great for having us...

On the homefront... Ashley and I might be getting new carpet so I got to talk to ashley after she had the desinger come over and take measurments and stuff.. Im kinda excited about it, its our first kinda home project besides painting which we will have to do again too.. But its all exciting.. Got to talk to Ashley while she was at Borders checkin into massage cds as well.. Sounds like she is doing good and I miss her a ton..
anyway this might be the longest post ever.. But thanks for TUNING IN.. Onto St. Louis...

He's Back and Better then EVER?????

Since 1999 I have been hailing KLEENEX GIRL WONDER's "Poneyoak" albums as one of the finest ever made.. But since then no offence to Grahm Smith But he has sucked a big old egg.. Anyway I came across this AMAZINGLY AWESOME NEWER VIDEO FROM HIM.. and It BLOWS MY MIND!! Seriously worth your 3 minutes.. check it out!

Pirate of the SCAREabeon

WOWie look at my little buddy COLE's halloween costume the best part of this pic is the COLE in the suite down in the corner so classic Like a before and after...

Well things are pretty busy round here.. I leave for tour again tommorow.. And Im totally not prepaird.. We have friends playing in town tonight... Casper and the Cookies and the Icicles.. So we will probably have 9 extra bodies sleeping on our floors tonight but Im excited to see them.. Casper and the Cookies is who Joe and I will be touring with.. So it should be a great big ball of fun...

I got stressed yesterday cause we had a review that compared us to Modest Mouse and I cant stand that band.. But Ashley made me feel better cause she said atleast you have a Modest SPOUCE...
well happy november... OUr house Morgage went down 3 dollars a month.. Ash and I havent yet figured out how to spend that money but Im thinking 3 samosa's from Pammel grocery might do the trick!

Happy Birthday Merrick

Well Im the luckiest Godfather ever.. cause Merrick Gagcke is my Godaughter.. I love her so and she turns the big 3 today Nov. 1st..
3 years ago to the day I wrote, recorded, and mixed a song about her, right after I got word of her being born.. Man I put some good drums on that song.. Anyway She is amazing and I love her so.. HAPPY B-day MERRICK!

Sing us a Song Piano Man

Well the time has come, I am now the last member of the Poison Control Center to live in our "HOME TOWN" of Ames.
With Ephraim in Iowa City, Devin in Columbia, MO and Joe t. now moving down to Des Moines.. Im a little bit lonely here in Ames..
Im super excited for Joe that he can now hit the road all the time with no need to get a house and cat sitter.. But its sad to see him move out of that apartment.. My all time Favorite PCC recording happened in that place.. on a song about Ashley Called "Magical One".. So in my little world its kinda like closing the doors to a great old ball park.. you know there is history there..
BUT there nothing likeing RIPPING one of the grandstand seats out of that old ball park and putting it in your basement..

In other words I have alwasy wanted a Piano and it might as well be the Piano that my favorite band recorded my favorite song with.... Not a bad piece of my musical history.. Thing is it took 3 dudes (eric joe and i) to get it lodge in my door way for about a half hour.. when "MS. MAGICAL ONE" was saying to take off the door instead of just being dudes and pushing it though...
WELL MAGICAL ONE wins again... But now we have a piano and I still love her as much as I did before.. Hopefully she still feels the same about me and scuffy up our door, floor, and steps.. OH Boy... thanks hun!
