Tour Diary #2 AZ-CA

When we arrived at Eliphante, in Cornville, AZ, we were faced with a difficult decision.  We’d been told that we could drive across the stream to get to the incredible web of handmade structures and meandering tunnels that make up Eliphante.  But the river was looking real high!  we sort of tiptoed the scion onto the riverbank and quickly decided to put her in reverse and seek alternate passage.  I nice couple in a 4 wheel drive pickup hauled our gear across and we cracked a couple of beers and took a boat across.

The other side was magical.  I quickly made friends with a goat with a mohawk and explored all the nooks and crannies of the place (if you didn’t already, click the word Eliphante in the first sentence to see pics)...

Tour Diary #1 (getting going)

Around the end of February, i met up with Dan in El Paso, TX.  We played a sweet little bar called Monarch (they also have the best coffee in El Paso as far as i can tell).  Leo and the rest of the crew there were excellent hosts.  The next morning i got up and ate breakfast at Lucy’s Diner while dan was sleeping.  Lucy’s was cool… it’s a tiny diner that has that classic 50′s feel… there are about 10 barstools and you just sit down and the cook takes your order and then turns around and starts cooking.  It was an excellent Mexican breakfast and i’d definitely go back.  The coffee was typical shitty diner coffee though (which i kinda love)… so when Dan got up, we went back to Monarch for really good coffee and a few goodbyes.

From El Paso, we headed to my home in Silver City, NM (afte...

A New Home!

Hey Folks!

Winter is upon us and i’ve sought retreat from the damp, grey, northwest in southern New Mexico for the foreseeable future.  Kyle and i have relocated to Silver City, NM where we’ve been enjoying a nice little rental home and lots of sunshine.  It’s been a long time since we really had a space of our own and we’re looking forward to all of the nice things that come with that.

Welcome to New Mexico!

I’m in the process of scoring a film which should be out next year sometime and i’ll be starting to “campaign” for another year of CSM very soon.  If you haven’t signed up yet for 2013, stay tuned for details or hit me up for more info!

fabuloso!

Chance?

Hi folks,

I’m making an effort to keep this site more active and update you with some photos and tales from my travels.  If you’ve been here before, you know i don’t blog much so please bear with me as i figure this out. (side note, i just looked that up because i realized i didn’t know whether it was bare or bear and i found this: Bear with me is a standard expression used as a request for forbearance or patience. Bare with me would be an invitation to undress.)

Anyway, I was just in Kansas City, MO visiting some family (we had a reunion actually) and it was really nice to see a lot of family that i haven’t seen in many years. I didn’t take any pictures of that but plenty were taken and we you probably don’t need to see those anyway...

Summer Air

The sun is shining in Portland, Oregon and that is a rare and exciting thing!.  It wasn’t shining for several weeks though, so i spent a whole bunch of time playing in a basement with guitar pedals.  It’s led to an interesting new setup for my solo gigs.  Extra amps ans weird sounds and things…

I plan to play quite a few solo gigs this summer on the west coast, maybe some as soon as next week so keep a lookout on the schedule.

Hope to see ya soon!

p.s. if you didn’t get a chance to sign up for the CSM, I’m offering the second half of the year $5-10  (sign up in May and i’ll through in June too!)  Just click on the CSM link above.

swellness!
