Firestarter

Remember when I had a dream that Kevin was secretly the mastermind behind the band Prodigy? He wanted to do Male Bonding without people knowing who he was. This photo makes you wonder.

I once got asked if I could do a interview about tour managing for Scion. It was less of an interview, and more that I was to tell two stories, 5-10 mins long, about touring to be turned into a short animated video. The catch was that it couldn't involve "sex, drugs, alcohol, violence or any other illegal behavior." In hindsight, I should have just talked shit, but at the time it didn't seem appropriate. After struggling to tell a few stories (the "interviewer" didn't engage with me, but just told me what I couldn't say,) I think we both realized it wasn't going anywhere. I don't think the video was ever made, which was fine with me because I still got paid (although they tried to send me half as much as we agreed.)

I was asked to submit a photo, which is what you're seeing above. Me on the side of the stage during BC @ The Music Box 2/24/11.

This is the poster for what was probably the most successful tour I booked. It was all downhill from here.

Brattleboro, VT with King Tuff - 6/25/09

After getting home from a really long 2 1/2 month tour of the US and Europe, I needed a break. My friend Kara was biking around New England, so we met up at my parents in Central Massachusetts and went up to Brattleboro to see Kyle for the day. We found him in the "parking lot," and followed him around on his daily activities, which include saying hello to people, hanging around his art studio and getting free coffee at the bakery. He took us for a nice hike, where we dipped our faces in the river. This is also the day that Michael Jackson died, and we found out while eating a falafel.

This is the demo for my old band Relationships, which I found in my friend Kara's room. There were five covers with different stock photos of kids, each representing a member of the band. This is supposed to be Sue, our singer. I think we recorded this Jan or Feb of 2006?
