one day

have you heard about the controversy in dc over the david wojnarowicz video? please look it up, if not.

and then look at this work he did.

maybe if people looked at this, they'd understand where the hell he is coming from and be outraged by the removal of his video from the smithsonian if they unfortunately weren't already.

resist psychic death

i think we just played one of my favorite shows ever. i feel so lucky that we were asked to participate. it was a benefit for the organization Support NY. Don't know em? CHECK THEM OUT please here. We played with lots of really rad folks and the space felt very special. thanks to the peeps that came out and to the manifesta loft and to support new york. so much love...

we are going on tour next week. Details of all the shows will be up soon.

also katy and i are really honored to have been asked to play a few reunion shows happening in January. First we'll be doing two shows with Universal Order of Armageddon in New York and Philly.
January 21 • Cake Shop
January 23 • the Barbary

Then on January 27 we are playing with Dismemberment Plan here in Philly! At the starlight ballroom. I think my mom is coming to the show. it'll be the first time she has seen my band. it means a lot to me that she will be there. especially since the first time she heard my band she started cracking up and never asked to listen again! hope i make you proud maman.

for my friend

my hands trace the lines of your body
full of (life) skin heavily revealed
curved pencil lines reproduce
your arms your back your chest your thighs
with each body part that awakens
my heart beats a little faster, races
and one more year of pain and desperation
becomes my history
this drawing makes me forget
the bones and points of the girls on stage
who i saw break your heart

sing what scares you
draw what heals you
