Thinking about moments like these. I’m not prone to a lot of nostalgia, but today I’m joyful about the time I spent with my friends with @rileywildmen - I’m proud that I was able to book a show at @skullysmusicdiner for my friends. I’m happy to know that making music is not and never was about money, or “making it” - it was just about being able to travel with my friends and make music that meant something to me. So in that spirit - I just wanted to say to all the musicians in my life - enjoy your moments. There will probably come a time in your life when you’d kill for a chance to play whatever show you have coming up that you might unintentionally take for granted. The dre isn’t money or big full rooms. It’s making something you can show your kids someday. It’s sharing a moment with your friends at random spots. It’s peeing in bottles in a van, cping at Yosemite National Park because you can, and playing music that calms the anxieties in life - if only for a moment. So even if you find yourself playing a show for two people in a coffee shop that aren’t even interested enough to take their headphones off - those moments are victories. Because having a dre and working to live that dre is the reward you’re really after. Even if you don’t realize it. One day you will. The past is just there to teach you how to be present. And the future is just a consequence or a reward of what you do today. So I hope that on this random March Monday - if you’re still reading this - you’ll remember that today is a gift, and existence is a literal miracle. And I a sappy weirdo.
My first act as the manager for @kirchandstuff was to take this sideways video of them because I’m basically an old man that apparently can’t operate a camera. Either way - eternal props to Kyle because Kirch is legitimately my favorite project in Nashville at the moment. When I hear them I’m reminded of how much I used to love the Killers. And any kind of well thought out synth pop. And anybody who would try to turn a house show into a night at Bridgestone. Ambition is underrated. #synthpop#nashville
Instead of eating lots of trash to appease myself, I’ve been trying to cook more and treat food in a generally healthy way. So I made this spinach and mushroom pizza and it was tasty.
