lots going on...

this whole thing could be a bust!
there are several things on the horizon that could lead to several other things that would be really cool. and eventually, some sort of state of nirvana will be reached, and it's all hinging on this one thing happening.

not really...that's actually a load of nonsense, but my mind certainly operates that way until i slap myself a few times.

sxsw was a brief but extremely fun time. i still consistently rate it as the highlight of my year, although we were only there for an afternoon. we stayed at lances (the roadie/goodtimes coordinator/ levi's cousin), who looks like a ghost in the spontaneous all dudes party pictured below.

we then proceeded to the hot freaks party, where we saw ola podrida, white denim, blitzen trapper, and the magnificent british sea power. the bands were good, the beer was cheap and mexican, and the popsicles were free and well received on this 90 degree day.

i've been lucky enough to get to spend some time in my favorite town in texas. wimberley is a small town just south of austin in the hill country...rumor has it that it was a safe haven for hippies in the 60's and the free love breeding ensued, resulting in a pretty slow-paced, chilled-out culture.

i'm here with radiant plus kevin and becki howard. tonight we're levi's backing band in a youth rally in town, but right now we're in chris kipp's coffee shop (kipp's coffee) taking it easy. dragan and i manned the espresso bar for a while, as if we missed working the morning rush at starbucks this morning.

that's it for now brotha....

the (radiant) boys are back in town!!

and by that i mean my trusty 12" ibook has been repaired and i'll be blogging as often as my interweb access affords me. right now i'm living with three other dudes: jon, jamey, and coty. the internet is something we don't have along with food, cable, and occasionally toilet paper. but it's our place and we like it.

the band had a show scheduled for tomorrow night but we had to cancel it due to levi's laryngitis. the songs we are writing are really turning out good i think. there's a lot of verve in the room during the writing process that was missing before. probably because of our diversity, illustrated here:
