The Guide to Staying Productive.

This lives on my wall by my door:

It is what I use to remain 'feisty,' and 'eager,' and 'sharp.'

It is a simple guide that I will run you through.

Be a Little Depressed: Just like working hungry, a slight bit of depression adds realism to craft and endeavors.  Do it.

Make Noise: Pick some shit up, and play it.  What ever it is, no matter how good/bad you think you are.  This is just for you.

Use a Pen: Write something, anything, everything.

Utilize Some More Paper: Draw some shit.  Even just a straight line.  Even just a couple dots.  We're working on expulsion here.

Use Your Eyes: Look, read, consume with yer oculars.

Love Something: Works just like depression.  You tell me what love is, and I'll show you what an accomplished day looks like.

Clean Some Shit: Your space is dirty, your head is dirty. Simple.

Make Coins: Don't knock the hustle.

Stickers and K-Holes make a big noise.

There's a place called Pony.

A window looks like this:

It is really dark, and they server Colt 45 in a bag with a straw.  Seems 'legit.'

They host shows and some vidz from this show look like this:

Grave Babies:

Butts released a new album. A lot of bands played.

~2 weeks ago, Seattle band (We're)Butts released a new tape, and had a party at relevant club in the city.

Four bands were billed and some of them look/sound like this:

Wet Paint DMM

Here is a live performance of the No Wave 2k9/10 hit 'Lion Tamer.'

It is loud.

Here is a picture of Margret Doll Rod in her underwear bangin' on a drum:

Flexions played, but there might be something about wxy(whiskey) right in here.  Or something as equally alternative.


Here's is the hit song 'Let's Smoke Ciggerettes.'

I feel this represents my demographic.

Their merch looked like this:

I don't know if the they can operate without jello shots:

Chances are I was now blacked out, and didn't maintain journalistic gestalt enough to get the name of this song.  It is completely side ways.

Sleeper Post // Craig Cady

This is Craig:

He is a highly evolved member of society.
He was once a Poet Laureate of some midwest state/city/province.
I have seen this man jump off balconies to avoid police officers.
I have also seen him buy and consume 'NRG Alcoholic Beverage.'

This is some of the work he perpetuates:

When we decide to do something with our lives, I will show you more.

Lost and Sound has a show.

Last Thursday, a new house sprang up in Seattle. It's a little east of Green Lake, read: An area that does not have shows. The house is called Lost and Sound, and for their first show, this seems to be a nice bench mark, a high bar that I'm excited to see where it goes.
The line up was just two acts. Universal Studios Florida and Gobble, Gobble.

I did you a favor, and got a couple of siick recordings for your ear's sweet tooth.

D/L 'New Cub': Here

This cut is 'Close Your Eyes': Here

I would post the recordings of Gobble, Gobble, but you just wouldn't 'get it.'
All there is to say is: given the chance, SEE THIS FUCKING BAND.

They gave me these 7"s

One of them is filled with glitter.

They crashed at The Big House and we watched Willow and talked philosophy and Canada.
It's called Rock and Roll. Dig it.

FINALLY! New Records.

The Myelin Sheaths were in Seattle for a few hours to hang out and give CMR some of the records that just came out. We went to Sonic Boom, ate pizza, and smoked hella cigs, then they had to split up to Vancouver to play with Student Teacher and Timecopz. It is seriously an amazingly great record!!! No biased opinion.

So I assume you know our moniker is "We have more fun than money' which is true, so record buying has been slowing down lately, but finally got our hands on a new record. The new TYVEK - "Nothing Fits"- It's like good vintage 2007 Tyvek, and less like their previous followups that were kinda mediocre. This one kills though.
