Pepper Rabbit makes sense

sorry, I've been on temporary blog leave for quite some time,

first off, Degaussed has finally picked a day for our first show -- July 2nd at the Modern Exchange.
listen to Degaussed here!!

I'm getting scared of what may happen, though -- it's basically impossible to be in two bands at once. Being in a band and then a side project is one thing, but it looks like Degaussed is going to be a big thing. I just don't want to have to come to the crossroads of having to choose one band over the other....

besides that, there has been bits of quarrelling here and there. I have felt so peaceful since school has let out, and it has given me time to think and to do some things I didn't have time for before.

basically this post has only updated the blog, I'm getting some film developed today!!

by the way, check out Pepper Rabbit. their music is totally excellent! I'd say it's a combination of Beirut, puppies and candy stores

goodbye, luke



last night was Luke's last show with SR. he has given so much to us, and it's time we part. I'll still always see him with being in Degaussed....but I still love him so. as always, I met some really great people backstage and made some new friends. I just stopped and thought about how lucky I am to be where I am and how happy I am. it was a big show with Crackjaw, Hiding in Thailand, Conniption(their first show in ten years!), and a few others. it was great. of course, ritualistic Denny's afterwards..... =)

I don't ever want to leave

Higgins Lake is my third most favorite place in the world- next to Port Huron and home

I'm so happy. I'm so freakin' happy, man. I'm just so happy. I look at others being happy and it adds to the gracious feeling. I'm happy.

sleepwalk

I just made it home from up north with Matt, Luke, Marius and Rosetti. we had a really great time -- I'll have picures up soon.


as of right now, my top 3 favorite bands right now are: Mouth of the Architect, Animal Collective, and Broken Social Scene.

my newest experiment:

film soaked in tabasco sauce overnight. Fuji Superia.

tiny and potentially insignificant

I posted this on my myspace blog last night:

"I'm just ready:
to meet some new people

to not be afraid of getting close to someone
to keep making music
to see and experience something new
to find something extraordinary within myself
to sing
to be a better person
to be older and wiser
to feel more comfortable with myself
to keep feeling happy for others
to give something to someone else
to help
to get out of my skin and live freely and peacefully like I used to,or what I thought was free and peaceful??

I am just ready for a bit of a change and less routine in my life. oh yes."

that's basically what I've had on my mind for a couple weeks now.

Jake is gone in Wisconsin(and I think I actually might envy him for that) and I really miss him already. his absence reminded me a bit of how lucky I am to have him, though! it's funny, I turned on an old playlist this morning and Wisconsin by Bon Iver was on it. great song.



I have so much happiness and excitement all bottled up for this summer - finally Degaussed will take flight, maybe tour with SR, meet new people, learn a new instrument, travel........


I'm having one of those moments where I appreciate the transience of things!

I had a birthday

on the 18th. I'm posting right now for that day --








reminds me of one of Sigur Ros's album covers!
