shows, shows, shows.

filled with vitamin c, ibuprofen, and enough soup to sustain a small waterpark, i set out to support my friends at 3 ass-kickin' events this weekend. although i had been fighting a cold throughout the week, i was determined to soak in and enjoy the creative endeavors of my homies in a variety of ways.

friday night: halcyon nights at the curtain club in deep ellum
- if you haven't heard their latest song, wear a diaper the next time you come out to see them.

saturday evening: emily stoker and omar ogues (backbone) at etsy dallas' jingle bash at sons of hermann hall
- if this isn't creative inspiration and the DIY spirit at its best, i don't know what is.

saturday night: somebody's darling and john david kent and the dumb angels at city tavern on main street, downtown
-alt. country folk rock. boot scootin' asskickin' good time.

check out some photos of JDK and the dumb angels below or on flickr.

thank you.

normally i'm not a fan of these cutesy slideshow options on photobucket, but i figured this one fit with the theme of our show this past weekend. we had a great turnout. the house was filled with new and familiar faces, art, artists, advocacy, and blue moon.

thank you to everybody who made this possible.

our humble abode.

come one, come all.

abusing technology and the local news.

Last night, my roommate Nick and I decided to flip through the channels to get a diverse whiff of the election coverage. In hot pursuit of an unbiased source, we turned to FOX 4 news, where local reporter Shaun Rabb was engaging in a live chat forum.

We knew what had to be done.

In a flash, I grabbed the laptop from the coffee table and logged in as "HAXOR."

Rather than typing content that would merit an immediate booting, we went with a different approach: Off-topic,mostly benign, slightly personal interaction with the public figure. Regardless of how dull the line of questioning was, there was just something histerical about a dignified, respected news reporter addressing a person named "HAXOR."

check it out.

(HAXOR: why the long face, rabb?)


(HAXOR: rabb, you look distracted.)


(ShaunRabb: haxor it's just been a long day on the web since 12:30 all is well doing what we do)


*At this point, the televised news production panned to Rabb's monitor. Of course, we took advantage of the electronic 2 seconds of fame frenzy...

(HAXOR2: haxorrrrrrrrrrrrrrr)

today, we prove tupac wrong.

and i'm looking forward to it.

And although it seems heaven sent
We ain't ready, to see a black President...

We gotta make a change...
It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes.
Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
and let's change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.
