Jerk with a guitar

Just a random selfy with Me, Hannah, And the Xterra.

Jerk with a camera

Mikala & I

Lately I find myself doing a lot more music wise then I do photo wise (not to say that I am going to become a jerk with a camera /guitar/banjo/microphone or anything anytime soon) In addition to playing in our increasingly inaccurately described folk rock duo My Friend Lisa (there are four of us now) I have found my self playing with Mikala on a fairly regular basis. I have also been working on a raunchy punk rock side project with my other awesome friend Jenna (whom you may remember from this video) called “The Stank“ All that & I have been recording a few demos for other people! All in all it has been rather busy on the music front these past months.

All the while I have been tring to live up to the camera part of my jerk with a camera name though, as such this is a polaroid from Wednesday of my friend Mikala manhandling Chester!

We were working on some new material but its not quite ready for the masses yet so I will leave you with a cover of the worlds best band EVAH!!!

I am not a drummer…..

…but it would seem that I try anyway :)

Yup – Not A Drummer

Playing Music With Complete Strangers

A few weeks ago I responded to a craigslist ad that was looking for people to play music with. Today we all got together and did just that, play music. The four of us met up at the communal rehearsal space we have in my building and after introductions and such were exchanged we played some random music totally making it up as we went.
It was completely frightening & exhilarating all at the same time. I had all those feelings that I simply am not someone that plays ‘real music’ I simply play “music” but I have to say we had some fun and with in the first 6 min we made something that could be called music :)

Completely awesome!!!
