the photography:
spending five days in the state of my youth reminds me of how much i HATED where i grew up when i was a kid and inversely just how much i LOVE it as an adult. visiting family and friends is always good for the soul and this past weekend was no exception. as i wrote earlier, my nephews are ridiculous. here’s some photos from wandering the place. a motorcycle, a house, some trees, great bubbly, lobsters, and a privy. my feet felt like they were up all weekend long.

the music:
swearing at motorists are one of the great unsung midwest indie rock heroes. their biting wit and dead-on lyrics cut even the most staunch listener to the core and they make random stories about small city living relevant to anyone. it’s fantastic lyrics mixed with lo-fi DIY production that sounds miles better than it should. these guys should be touted as the “best little band with song writing that people have never heard”. this song could have ended up on a modest mouse rarities record. the touching line for me (sorry about the curse words in advance): “you shut the fuck up, and you calm the fuck down.” he means it.
