Why do you have an olden days phone?

the ghosts of ideals haunt me
Spilled milk burnt my skin
Teaching my niece how to play pretend
This guitar taught me how to put a soundtrack to the melancholie
& they tell me to play something "upbeat"
Next time I'll tell them fuck you
This time- seclusion
went home to a place I have no memories from to watch advertisements & take baths
tell my mom I love her
But I'm not sure I know what that is
all I'm thankful for is a dog
who was naive enough to hang around me
As I've fought a war against myself
reminding me some of the world is soft
Still has teeth
if the truth comes out
We'll all be broken
been clinging to illusions
but I'll find something to make me happy

fred is dead and the 50 states project is almost done


oregon from the hill where i was always welcome in crude immigrant relative fashion
marge my great aunt is moving back to lockport after half a century out west
i wonder if i'l ever go up that hill again
and witness the beauty of the rogue valley with an obtrusive highway running through it, reminding me who i am.
1 more state til ive recorded a song and took a picture in all of em.

lined notebook

one time this girl in savannah liked savannah(k9) and felt bad, or somethin, it was winter and we were sleepin outside so she let us stay with her. id been tearin thru notebooks hangin round coffee shops and filled up my last one and I told her and she gave me this one- I kinda scoffed at it because it was lined paper etc but I ended up not being a notebook yuppie and used it and its got some of my fav stuff-I pretty sure I did most of it left handed cuz my right wrist was bummed at the time

love everything about this

(so theres a couple stories that will intertwine)
i'd been seein this dude skate around downtown and have been so damn intrigued- the way he skates -just in and out of traffic- reminds me of how i learned in new york city- and poppin lil ollies- i was like i love this dude -his style is so smooth , what i like about skateboarding, not all this broish no fun just try insane things and be arrogant and dont have fun.  i started thinkin about where he came from i guessed he was like 22.
on another line-
i've been runnin into this one dude and his family when im out playing- they get it- they stop and sit down and listen- sometimes for an hour sometimes for a song-they show love- and often ask "i dont get why all these people are walking past you". one day his son had his board with him and it was a OG nyc company- 5 boro. and we started talking bout skatin. n me and his dad had a broment and i was like yo dude u wanna trade numbers n skate sometime. so we end up meetin up and skatin n playin music n whatever -i start talkin bout this smooth ass asian dude i been seein skate around and it turns out thats his lifelong homie that he's been skating with since the year i was born and that he had spent about a decade in nyc living and cruisin the streets of chinatown- concuring my premonitions about his style.
that means vick-smooth downtown skater- is something like 45.
moral of the story- skating keeps you young.
this is a combined part they made spanning since the dawn of skating in rochester.
and the song is so dope- i tried listening to it by itself but its better with the skating.
(click on it-my blog setup is cutting off the sides of youtube vids n i dont really feel like figuring out computer shit)

growth of love- team rugged glory




the first pic was taken by a guy when i first got savannah at one of her first times out busking with me- at the fringe fest 5 years ago. the other week a guy came up to me- i remembered him- havent seen him in 5 years and he told me about it- and he sent it to me- and he took the 2nd pciture this year- 5 years later- while out busking at the fringe festival. eyes water

cmpny plcy



goin where the people are
so you can
miss your solitude
playing music outside of rite aid
with a white hat
that time has dyed with a brownish tint
housing itinerant dollar bills
until the shift manager
takes pleasure
in regretfully
telling you
you need to leave-
company policy


and there was a dog
laying next to you
throughout a half decade
harmonic circus fiasco
and
it makes you cry
thinking of all the times
she laid next to you
then walked with you
somewhere else
and laid down next to you
again
or curled up next to you
when you were hysterical
in tears


just the packs
company policy///

train rider disclaimer.

never, ever, take a girl riding trains who is the type who would then proceed to get with some basic square, shallow, mommas boy who uses the term "hobo" like it's a bad thing or derogatory term... she doesn't deserve the experience. there's no sure fire formula for predicting if she's the type but you can usually sense it.

alright you fucking hipster, I LOVE YOU (cole)

 cole from diiv covering sparklehorse.
girls if your gonna cheat on ur man- do it with someone cool like this.

RIP I.D.

rest in peace to the boy ID. this is one of my favorite rap songs. he was incredibly vulnerable on this track which was sort of rare given that he was known for his cocky battle rap persona. the vibe could be seen as negative here but i find it beautiful and incredibly insightful. He seemed to objectively  explore both sides of his split personality. He ended up dying of an overdose so this could be seen as foreshadowing and cautionary tale to all you kids addicted to weed thinkin its innocent.
But all that aside-much love dude, wherever your energy may be.
 the cherry on top of or the angry dog in the basement of this track is that WOODY, one of my childhood hero's and first cat i knew who made beats and was the first down whiteboy i ever met, absolutely killed this beat.
 bump this one n if you feel it tap his name on a wall or some shit and remember that life is fleeting.
