"Is it dark?" "Of course it's dark. It's a suicide note."

I knew today would be a pretty decent day when I weighed myself before work and saw a number below 190 lbs. Then Jason Poe took me out to eat for my belated birthday, and it's always great to see him. While I was at lunch, I got a call from a number that I didn't recognize. A lot of people ignore those calls, but I generally pick them up. So glad I did. It was SXSW calling to tell us that someone dropped out and we were really high on the waiting list, so we now have an official SXSW show. It's a little bit ridiculous how validating that is for me, but I am who I am, I suppose. It's on Thursday night at 11 o'clock on the Wave rooftop. I don't know much else about it just now, but check our sites to stay in the loop.

Radiohead are one of my all time favorite bands, but I don't listen to them that regularly because...well, I don't listen to anyone that regularly, really, unless they've just put something out. But today, Radiohead have been incredibly satisfying. Til my dying day, I believe that I will champion OK Computer as the closest thing possible to a "perfect record."

As I'm sure you've noticed, I changed my blog layout. I was going for a Royal Tenenbaums theme, in case you were wondering. I hope you like it. I just wanted something new and the first thing I tried, Leah told me it looked like a 16 year old girl's blog. Somewhat ironically, my response was to turn it pink.

The rest of today promises to be pretty great. Another couple of our favorite people, Todd and Hollie, have graciously offered to take Leah, Harper, and I to our beloved Cheesecake Factory for an early dinner. Then I imagine we'll head home for some relaxing family/dog time.

People take me really seriously on the interwebs. I, generally, think that that's not the best idea you could have. In truth, it is an actively bad idea.


  1. CONGRATS!!! on the show, on life, on etc. I like the pink. It reminds me of gum.

  2. That's awesome. A sincere congratulations. I'll let my Austin-dwelling cousins know to check out your show!

  3. I like the new layout! I keep trying to remind myself to draw something nice for the title part of mine. Maybe Leah said the 16 yr old girl thing because you're using Verdana? It's fine, but I guess Arial or something might be more masculine. In my imagination, Wes Anderson would like Helvetica. Or even Century Gothic. OK OK I am done

    Congrats on SxSW!

  4. Yay, about the SXSW show! All I have to say about that is "It's about time that someone got smart enough to put you on a stage in that festival!" Proud of you and the band!

  5. Congratulations! That's so great about SXSW!

    Yesterday I thought maybe Leah hacked your blogger account and switched it all up.

    I like it.
