I made an edit of the No Way Jose! footage from Charleston at the beginning of the month.

On the topic of Juggalos: The guy to the left is the only real life Juggalo I have ever met. His name is Lil Hatch. On the right is a man named Wayne who played guitar in a band that did mostly Doobie Brothers covers. I met them at a 24/7 yardsale in Augusta, GA while I was on tour with Brother Sister. They were both really nice.

maybe it is the conservative nature i somehow inherited simply by being born/raised in the south, but for some reason i have been reluctant to check out new music (and by new, i mean recently released). i am content with buying reissues/finding old soul 45's/etc, but it is so hard for me to move on. i guess when you are out of touch for so long, you are intimidated by where to pick up.

i have also always prided myself on being an avid supporter of the music coming out of my home (columbia, sc), despite having moved 3,000 miles away. but for some reason, i don't really listen to the myspace pages i click on with full intentions of listening to... i get distracted and wind up clicking a thousand links and forgetting whatever was intended.

with that being said, i am also very self-aware. and just to further prove my progress, today i downloaded "baby prayers" by coma cinema here and haven't stopped listening to it since i got home from work.

i guess last on the wagon is better than never getting on.

Things I bought at record store day: Surfer Blood 7", Peter Gabriel/Stephen Merritt 7", Pavement, 4AD sampler, reissue of "Chronic Town". Then later that afternoon, "An Aeroplane Over The Sea" was on clearance at Urban Outfitters so I bought that, too.

I already posted this on my tumbler, but will post it here, too. My camera has a fixed lens and the flash usually washes things out too harshly at shows. What is now twice my saving grace in taking a good concert photo with my little point-and-shoot was taking a flashless photo of someone taking a photo with their iPhone (which is usually about a third of the crowd). This photo is of Washed Out/Small Black playing a sold out show at the Rickshaw Stop a week ago.
