New Year's was seven months ago. Yes, I made resolutions. Publicly. For the most part, I can successfully say that things are underway. A drummer for The Heated has been secured, some business ideas are in the back of my head, a gym membership has been procured, a few trips to beaches, forests and lakes have been traveled and as for the calming down... well... how do you really measure such a thing?

Last night my wife walked into the living room and asked,"who are you and are you doing yoga?" I was kind of doing yoga. It wasn't my fault. These things just happen sometimes. I've even been considering signing up for a beginning meditation class and have started to love the musky scent of patchouli and body odor. White-girl dreadlocks are sure to follow.

Anyway, that's not my point. The point is that I am awesome at accomplishing things.


But not today

Tomorrow, I'm going to post a couple of blogs and hope to disguise the fact that I haven't been posting lately. But until then, I have this video for you. At first, I was insanely jealous that these young ladies (First Aid Kit) have such beautiful voices and wrote such a complex and haunting song too. I thought it was awfully mature of them. But it's actually a cover of a Fleet Foxes track. I'm not really familiar with either of these bands but this video is keen.


Renegade! A rebel!

Two things arrived while I was on vacation: my new business card and the flyer for the August 11th show at Hotel Utah. Allow me to plug a local business. I've dealt with Clubcard Printing for a few jobs now and they have excellent customer service, great pricing and are super-gay. If you live in San Francisco and have printing needs, they are it!

The Renegade Fair is this weekend. Everything is printed and waiting to be tagged. I'm no stranger to being "booth candy" but this is my first time selling my own wares. There's still a lot left to be done and I go back to work tomorrow. Sigh... Anyway, last night I sanded and shellac-ed these six foot poles (*wink*) for use in our display. Ciuccio and The Heated and gonna tear it up. Here's the info on that:

Hello! The second annual Renegade Craft Fair in SAN FRANCISCO will take place JULY 18 + 19 from 11am – 7pm, at Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion.
