Shore and Nude








The Shore and its Sand
b/w
Nude Beach

lathe-cut 7 inch
edition of 35

i made this record to sell at the printed matter los angeles art book fair. i made 35 copies of the record and it came with a 24 page book that illustrated each song like a story book. they are gone or gone from me in the physical realm but exist anew in the digital sphere.

you can listen or download the songs here

and you can watch a video, animated by my talented friends BrainTwins below:




deep cuts

record reviews of some recent cassettes from the local german cafe/european gift shop:



Goofball synth excursions into deep baguette-style noise/crust. 
The anti-hero of cave-squelch returns with his/her most brutal bagel-disco cuts yet. 

 Wurm's debut album, back in print. Struttin' n' buttin' since 1973. 
Includes all-fretless bass version of Wings' entire "back to the egg" LP as bonus track. 


  Clown punk and birthday cake scrunt, wrapped up in a prosciutto slice of lite funk-jazz.
white face paint smeared on a gong.



tub jams for yours and mine. music to loofa by.
dapper gent seeks sudsbros for playful casiotone and kimono play.
sounds like walter becker solo LP played at 45rpm.

life notes


notes:
-i think my child speaks fluent Hamburglar
-nothing in my house is child proofed and we are like two days away from full mobility over here
-that most recent thurston moore record is really good
-i had an art show in seattle and i never even wrote  about it on here
-i designed a poster for a festival i wish i could go to (see above)
-i'm working on updating and redesigning my website (boring)
-the balance of life and work and life is a tightrope, friends, let us help one another
-i want to make a skateboard graphic that is strictly for dads. like a screaming baby that's like the ripper graphic. or like one of those old slime balls ads where rob roskopp is barfing but it's... i don't even know but somebody is barfing.
-there is actually very little barfing going down in our house
-sorry for all the barf writing
-peace to us all

new year

thoughts:

-there is a new classic hip hop radio station here in indianapolis. i turned it on the other day and De L Soul's "Me Myself And I" came out of my speakers. i was immediately reminded of a day-glo de la soul t shirt i owned in middle school. i can't believe i ever got rid of that thing. I have since listened to it 2 other times and i've heard "Da Dip" by Freak Nasty at least 3 times. with 20 years or so distance i can now accept that this is an amazing song. people just wanna party and feel good, man. let us dip.
also this video is amazing:


-i am getting ready for the los angeles art book fair at the end of the month. so much to do! printing! my friend aaron and i are planning on making a zine to kill time at the fair completely based on the member from 2 live crew who always had the broken arm. this will also be the basis for our new as yet untitled street wear brand.

-i heard they made a tv show out of "the man in the high castle" my favorite book by philip k dick. i hope it's good. if not, oh well, we still have the book, right? right.

-yes i made a calendar this year but just like most years it is late. i should have it next week. is that ok? i'll let you know when it's ready. we can talk more about it's meaning and purpose later. here is a picture of it. i wish everytime you touched it "da dip" would start playing out of it.
-it's been one year-ish since my son was born and you'll notice my daily posting has dwindled to monthly. i don't know what to say about that. maybe i have less time to just think about stuff and write? maybe i need tom ake more time for that. tell it to the diaper.

-i listen to a lot of steely dan with my son. we call it "uncle dan" and when uncle dan comes to visit we all feel good. it's basically children's music for babies and grown ups who are really just big babies. donald fagen is just a scared little boy inside no matter what he says. but that's cool and  ican relate. the beginning of "gaucho" is the theme song to the sitcom about my life. freeze frames of my computer crashing, of me spilling food all over myself, of me getting the wrong to-go order, of me falling down on the ice.

-let this new year be fille dwith all good things. i am trying to follow my instinct more, to try not to control the things i cannot and to be honest and generous with the things i think and think should be in the world. good luck to us!
