The Dumpster is On Fire

Chances are, if you get punched in the face, you know why. If you don’t, you’ll probably exclaim something along the lines of, “What the hell did you do that for?” Maybe the person hitting you will tell you. Maybe they will just hit you again, at which point it’s time to decide if you’re going to fight back. For a brief period after liberal America was punched in the face by the 2016 election, this was a chance for some honest debate. Yet for as many people, both on and off the screen, asking Why?, it seemed nobody actually wanted to talk about the real issues facing America that caused this sort of voter revolt.

Instead, time passed and the liberal media decided to point the finger at Russia.1 This is quite handy, considering the fault primarily rests in our national discourse and the incompetent political class that stops short of acting in any representational—or even responsible—manner.

None of this is surprising to me, however it has been demoralizing enough to which I can barely be entertained by political conversation anymore.

The Shape of Punk to Come

Inventing The First Time Machine

I’ll have copies of my new project, a zine (and prologue of sorts to my next book) titled Inventing the First Time Machine at the First Friday December show at The Warehouse. Information and contents of the book will debut with the new Distorted Perspective website, set to launch January 1.

Stealing From Tim Robbins

A new audio-visual piece, a follow-up of sorts to “pickle jars”. Currently working on ideas to follow up the At Risk EP with a variety of good folk.

Gonna Soak Up The Sun

Santa Monica

Santa Monica (Watch The World Die)

Recently returned from a trip to Los Angeles where all that soft, empty radio rock from the mid-90s (see: Everclear and The Counting Crows) still seems to make sense. Nevertheless, there is something forgiving about a place so void of pretense.

Excuse the mess

While preparing for a full launch in 2018, the site is currently being re-built on both the front- and back-end. Until the new year, various sections will begin to appear and details will be refined day-to-day. Nothing public should be too out of whack, so if something looks off feel free to contact about it.

Thanks for your patience; the blog will be updated as well as expanded in terms of archive recovery. In the meantime you can also follow on IG.
