The Block

I gotta level with ya. I’ve got a bunch of half-written stuff in the can here but am having trouble pulling the trigger and finishing them off. Some are pretty long and took a bit of research while others are good chunks of stuff I haven’t yet got the guts to release. It’s been a […]

Contrary to what I’ve heard around the block, the summer is not over yet peeps.  Do these people know the first day of fall is still a month away? Get that nonsense outta here!  Now, I might be a bit biased because I’ve finally found some breathing room between now and a solid run of shows at […]
