Thursday, April 28, 2011


I got a job with this catering company for a little while before hittin' the ol' dusty trail again. Milo thought he could be helpful.

What A Wonderful World

Watching izzy hunt for easter eggs was incredible. I feel like a pretty lucky dude.

Gettin' Shit Did.

Hmmm...another sarcastic crossing off of tracking "to do's". Something tells me that my desire to photograph everyone crossing off their instrument from the tracking sheets is a bit middle aged momish. Dammit. But thanks for tracking viola Eric!

This Was The Best Part Of Yesterday

Oh man, I love runnin' vocals through my guitar pedals and amp. Especially the Eau Claire Thunder! It rules my brain-mind.

Gettin' By.

This is one classy mic stand.

Milo is the best producer in the world.

At Home

While I've been writin' and recordin' the jams for the Places EP, I've been recording some covers and makin' these videos. It's a nice way to take a break from my songs. Anywho, I'll be posting new videos every week on my website and on the ol' youtube.

Sister From Another Mister

Helen's in town. It rules.
There is some serious family history in Powderhorn Park.

Worth It.

Loading tons of crap is not awesome, but having a band is. I would load a million vans a million times with millions of loads of gear to have the We Are The Willows band play with me all the time. They are the best.

A Little Help From My Friends

Here's what I have left til the ol' recording is finished.

I had some company last night. It was awesome.

Ben tracked bass for the EP last night. He's always the MVP when it comes to recording. Every band I've been in with him, he just hammers his parts out right away. It's incredible. Stephen's really impressed too.


Ben checks bass off the list without any sarcasm.

All The Words

Is one of your favorite bands in the world comprised of a bunch of your buds? Mine is.
I love Laarks.

Cutting It Close

While I'm at home, I do a lot of recording. Right now I'm finishing up a new EP. Well, I always have designated breaks so that I don't lose my mind. For a while it was watching episodes of Boy Meets World. Last week it was cutting Milo's hair into a Mohawk. Then it became cutting the mohawk cuz he looked awful. Then it became taking him into Petsmart to get a normal hair cut.

Now he looks like a gay alien.

What The Hell, Minnesota

Jeepers Creepers. It snowed yesterday. Oh well. Its gone now.

Good Touch/ Bad Touch

Some dogs are humpers. Milo isn't, but sometimes he just rubs his face all over you. He was doing this while Emily was recording violin. She still loves him anyways.

Friend Trip.

I played the Midwest Music Festival on Friday and it was a blast. The Winona Arts Center is an incredible place to play....I mean, look at it!

Jer and Karin came down to hang out. Oh man we had a blast at Ed's. Jer and Karin got a little sexy in the bar.

College Rules In 1992!

Lately Jer has been sporting this Cosby sweater that makes him look like a college student in the early 90's. Its magical...especially when he wears his Future Farmers of America hat.

The Farm

I used to live at a house called, "The Farm". Even though I haven't lived there for almost two years, I am there almost everyday. Some of my favorite people...and animals live there.

Gettin' Shit Did.

Its getting there.


Wednesdays have become something of a sacred day as of late. It's the holy day of Rock n' Roll jam time.

Monday, April 11, 2011


The Final batch of recording sessions has begun. May god have mercy on my soul.

Right Now.

I just found out that it only costs a buck to rent kid's movies from the store down the street. Ruh-roh.

I Love This Band.

I can't wait for their new recording some day.



I finished my taxes.

Right Now.

A great movie where 4 grandparents share a bed.

I saw a guy doing ARM CIRCLES today! God, I love that workout.

Right Now.

I love science fiction.

The We Are The Willows String Incident

Emily, Bethany, Leah and I rehearsed the string parts for a few jams on the Places ep on Saturday. These gals are incredible.


I've been on a two day date with Uncle Sam. What a gentleman.

Whoa. A Post About Music

I picked up the sheet music for the string section that will be playing on the new ep, Places. My pal Josiah Arranged the parts. We'll be rehearsing them today. I'm extremely pumped.

Slamma Lamma Ding Dong!

There are some things I haven't felt in a long time. Like intense competitiveness (is that a word?) and video game anxiety. My buddy Nate just bought a Nintendo 64 and the game NBA Hangtime. I have been experiencing so much video game anxiety. Fuck the Grizzlies.


Hello to you too Hugo.

Tis The Season...

to get gnarly.
