Oh yes, sunny Los Angeles! I've been trying to hike off the debauchery of the past few weeks at Runyon, and laying low: mainly drinking wine, cooking, and watching my friend's DVDs. The tour with Busdriver, Akrobatik, and Pigeon John took us through lots of interesting places and many not-so-interesting ones; I'm at a loss for words when it comes to states like Nebraska... It's as if no one cared, and just said, "well, screw it- let's just move on." I don't even think the clouds were interesting over Nebraska, and that's saying quite a lot coming from me (I am sure Busdriver got sick of me pointing out all the different clouds and rolling down the window to snap photos, but I was just getting back at him for making me listen to They Might Be Giants and The Knife).
Anyway, enough smack-talking. Here's what's coming up in the next couple of weeks:

Mirrors for Eyes just shipped to stores!
That's right: my new album on Mush, "Mirrors for Eyes," just shipped to stores on Monday, so it should be reaching shelves as early as next week; however, if you come and say hello while I'm on the road, I will have copies with me for your listening pleasure.
