The details on our European tour are beginning to come together and I’m so excited. I’ve been home from tour since early January and I already feel some cabin fever. Between SXSW, Touche Amore tour/split, AOF/TrashTalk/ThereforeIAm tour, and Europe, the coming months are very exciting. Hope to see many friends and make plenty of new ones in our adventures.

We will be announcing dates soon in Europe, so please be patient. As soon as we know them for sure, we will share them with you.
In the mean time, check out the incredible band we are exploring Europe with, Le Pre Ou Je Suis Mort. You can listen to their whole record at Denovali’s website (click their name) and it is SO good. I’m stoked to see this band live, nonetheless tour together.

LOST tonight

02/02/2010 § 7 Comments

we in the la dispute camp are pretty big lost fans, to varying degrees, and tonight i’m going OFF. i’m already ordering food so that nothing will disturb me during the premier tonight.
will be updating later hopefully with some pictures from my lost party, which is just me, nave from native, and nara. got some dharma beers and a big screen tv. pregame has already begun watching the season 5 finale.

and a friendly repost of more lost inspired things we’ve done:

chad isn’t caught up, and jordan and kevin are crunching to finish season 5 before the premier tonight, so don’t post any theories or spoilers just yet. lost party roll call in the comments, let me know if youre doing anything wild. a real ruckus should be planned for the final episode…

Ups & Downs

11/11/2009 § 9 Comments

Down – I lost everything on my computer. Every program and file that I didn’t have backed up somewhere (which was most) got erased. Life happens.

Up – I got to replace my old photoshop CS1 with CS3 and have been exploring all the new features today. also replaced fruityloops 8 with 9, not much difference there. still hoping to get adobe illustrator cs 3 or 4; i downloaded 4 but had a problem with a keygen.

and from my messing with photoshop and my tablet comes the following. what do you think of it as a shirt design? might be getting some made before the december tour with native. if you like my artwork, you can see more of it at my sporadically updated blog of my own,

Side note, our best friends in Touche Amore are coming through our neck of the woods soon and it is our goal to show them a crazy good time. We’ll be with them for 4 days, the 19-22 in Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, and Chicago respectively. We aren’t playing the GR show, but some of us are in another band called ENDS and we might play it. There is more information about all of these shows in our shows listing, but for the sake of staying on topic of things i made today, heres a flyer for the first of four: kalamazoo.

I miss my old fonts and photoshop brushes already. If you have any suggestions for things I should do with my newly revamped computer, leave a comment. And get a new one isn’t a valid suggestion, unfortunately; i haven’t a nickel to my name.

I'm a lot happier now than I was this time last year.

here are a few pictures i got from our practice spot in our halloween costumes. brad and i had a lightsaber battle, only to team up and defeat chad. i have an especially dumb face in the last one, but its funny to me so i’m including it. i of course neglected to take any on halloween, so i don’t have any of jordan’s costume or us playing. if you have any pictures or videos (set intro please?) send them to
