about

The first really collaberative album, recorded all over the place. First at BLD in Columbus, Ohio, with sessions done place to place all over Columbus, OH and Los Angeles, CA.

My good buddy Ryan Shaffer really wanted to produce a record for me, and did a bang up job.

Track Name: A Forrest Needs A Florist
you'll try to capture a rythnm
but it always slips right out through your hands.
Track Name: Full Time Job
You don't understand
why it is I do the things I do.
I could say the same for you
until our faces all turn blue.
Track Name: Clementine
Perhaps
I'll draft a symphony
detailing what's grown
cold in me.
A orchestra of muted brass
will hammer out all
the tits and tats
that lead me down
this garden path
to a tenement made of
ginger bread.

Where
there's an elderly spinstress spinning yarns.
I guess
that should've triggered my alarms.
But I couldn't really see
how she could do me harm...
Track Name: Only Yacths
A supply side tsunami of evil looking motherfuckers
is coming my way.
And nothing
is gonna make them change.
Track Name: Fear And Loathing Of Los Angeles
my ex-girlfriend
says "to me, you're dead."
Track Name: Am I An Idiot?
I know love is not real
but I still feel it.
Does that make me an idiot?
