Looking Forward in the New Year: A brick mower Perspective

Hello children,
Sit down and let me tell you a cautionary tale of rock and roll. First, always wear ear protection unless you enjoy listening to phantom monotone car alarms ringing in your brain throughout the night. Second, beer before liquor never been more annoying with a microphone. And third, gas is expensive.

So there you have it. Write that inside your guitar case or on your drumstick, and my friends, you will rock and roll till the cows come home.

Well, it's now 2011, and that's just crazy. I remember being 10 thinking about what I'd be doing when I was 25. I honestly thought I'd have a motorcycle and being playing drums in a cool, vulgar metal band even though I didn't know what metal was when I was 10.

Ok, I digress. Here's what we have going on in 2011 so far.

-Full-length record, Under the Sink to be released in March 2011 on LP and CD through VOC Records and Stumparumper Records. Also, it'll be out on cassette through Clubhouse Records. That's a lot of options! Anyone wanna put it on 8-track?

-Weekend tour on Jan. 7th, 8th, and 9th with Black Wine to Baltimore, Philly, and NJ!

-Another weekend trip with Backpocket. Jan. 14th in Baltimore, 15th in Philly.

-New 4 song 7'' of older pre-Steve on drums recordings coming out in April on Rok Lok Records.

-Split 7'' w/ Snow What, with Steve on drums!, when the weather gets kind of humid again on one or both of our labels.

-We'll play some shows.

Sound good to you? Those plans are cool with us. In the meantime, good luck with your resolutions. I'm sure most of you will fail, unless you DO IT! Good luck, and peace on earth and good will hunting to men.

A Holiday Thought...

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
