The Moon



Took this shot with my LumixFX500 point & shoot through some binoculars.

I don't have a 12" telescope so I'll have to watch the LCROSS impact live on NASA's website.

The Trick to Chopping Trees Down



I'm not sure what to call this song yet.

Still screens, metamorphine
My bones are in their sockets
Right where they belong

Work weeks, wallowing speaks
Some other foreign language
That somehow I read

The weight of wisdom on water will turn it to tears
The way the world treats our daughters; they're walking with fear

Timelines, bonus bank fines
I'm off to find a problem
Just one I can solve

Calling curteisievening
The trick to chopping trees down
Is to not really care mind

Though dark can swallow the world and wave all it's arms
Despite dependence on dark, the light's still in charge

I know I can't stop living in judgement
It's pretty hard but you know it's true
No matter what stops hurting around me
We know I can't stop hurting for you
I'm not trying to do you wrong here
I'm just trying to live my life
I'm trying to live my life
I'm trying to do it right

Forest Fires (Acoustic)

I recorded a pretty low-fi, acoustic version of "Forest Fires" last night for no good reason. Enjoy some falsetto.

Bad Ad

Sorry to be such a snob about this, but this Palm Pre ad has got to be about the ugliest I've seen recently; especially for what's supposed to be a "cool new phone".

Had to make it a link because I didn't want that ugly ad on here.

P.s. How do you go from this...

Whispering Bees

Tonight, after watching I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, I felt like recording something and this is what happened. The quality isn't great but it's all from the internal mic on my iMac.
