When Hammer Hits Stone

I've been going to see RTB2 play a lot the last few months and I have become OBSESSED with the song When Hammer Hits Stone.


I've been getting into playing my clarinet lately. I really want to get my chops up so I can play long enough for a rehersal.

Alisa and I are going to start working on some duets soon. If anyone else wants to get in on this just let me know.

Clarinet Solo for you aural enjoyment.

In my search for a community band to play with I came across this little gem.

"The Oak Lawn Band
dedicates itself to serving the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Allies (LGBTA) community and its causes as well as other communities within Texas and the United States."
I find the idea of this interesting and curious in an appropriateness/necessity way, but in my extreme eschewal to any political discussion I don't care to discuss or think of it further.


If you think you are my friend and you don't love this band, then you are mistaken.

Well, maybe not. But you are either missing out or a total tool.

Dinner with the Fam.

Any of my friends who has had the pleasure of dining with my family has invariably been called an "idiot" or referred to as a "pinhead" by Brent - lovingly of course.

Let's just say I'm pretty sure there would be two holes in the window where each of those boys had been drop-kicked out of the neighborhood.

Yellow Brick Road

I want this to be the first thing I see when I wake up tomorrow.
