***CHANGE OF ADDRESS***

Hello! So I got fed up with myspace because they deleted all my beautiful html and replaced it with weirdo bull crap formatting, and I got fed up with blogger because they don't let me post music directly, so I decided to start using tumblr, on the recommendation of some friends.

I'm abandoning blogger and myspace as strictly archival at this point.

If you want to continue to follow me---which you do---you can find me here:

"Illuminate me"

(Honey, please)



Now I see that time be
merely an extension of memory
I seek redemption from insanity
in bleak retention of all that may come to be,

I see clearly, that one extension
of myself may be just a mention
of the depth of the sea, I'm repenting,
but half heartedly, I'm startled from my sleep...

By dreams,
by screams,
by beams
of light that would never
illuminate me...

We could be friends to the ends of the
earth and sea, if only we could get
along with the bees, sing songs with the trees,
honey, please, honey please...

Can't we see clearly what we were
meant to be, in the dreams that
come nightly, to take us through the
stormy seas... while high winds increase...

In dreams,
in screams...
in beams...
of light that would never
illuminate sea...
Never illuminate me...
buzzing just like a lost bee...
lost at sea....
lost in the seeing eye,
I never knew you,
so why would I say
Goodbye to you?

*New Hoodie Design*

So, I screenprinted a few hoodies...



That's an awareness ribbon. It reads "Syphilis" and "Franz Schubert 1797-1828."

Just so you know, Syph is a spirochete. Kind of like Lyme.

I printed them in honor of Schubert's death day...

And

HAPPY BIRTHDAY IAN.

Spiders Song

Hey Molly, remember that time I said I'd write a song for you, and I did, but then I had to learn how to fingerpick and didn't play it onto the internets.... UNTIL NOW

I've been calling in the night,
I've been crawling toward the light
at the end of the tunnel in my eye,
I've been bawling bearing blight
I've been stalling steering sight
to a glow that will never ever die
I'm obsessing over things,
I been guessing about things
that I shouldn't really think about at all,
I'm impressive when I sing,
I confess, I know nothing,
But my soul's feeling whole in my guitar

& improv...

FLOW CHART OF PAIN



I thought about making a "Flow chart of symptoms," but that would have taken up about 11 sheets of paper, so I used the diagnoses, and symptoms are implied.

Open letter from Pain

Pain is a transformative force.
