rock music ain't dead

Found this on Jay Reatard live at the Cake Shop in NYC. Enjoy. For some reason you only get a part of the video on my site. To see the entire show in fullscreen go to, click on "pitchfork live", scroll down and look for Jay Reatard.

three is the magic number

Why is it that there is always one member of any three piece band that I can never remember their name. I thought it was me but then I started asking some people to name all three members of some well known three piece bands and only a few people actually knew all three. Pretty much everyone could only name two of the members and then stumbled on the third.

Here's what I could think of. I mean..maybe it's just me.

Geddy Lee, Neil Peart and whats his name.

Sting, Stuart Copland and whats his name.

D. Boon, Mike Watt and whats his name.

Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and whats his name.

The two dudes with the long beards and whats his name.

Paul Weller, Bruce Foxton and whats his name.

Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and whats his name.

Rachael Sunday, Joel Lilley and whats his name.

You think I'll be in IMDB?

I've been keeping this a bit of secret for awhile now because I wanted to make sure it was actually going to happen. Some people knew about it..but that's only because I either needed some advice or I was tired about hearing how great their life was. Well, I can now say it's actually going to happen. Over the past month I've been working out details with a production company for them to use a song I wrote back when I played in a band called Dryer. The movie is a documentary called America The Beautiful and the song they are using is called "MTV". It looks pretty interesting, and I'm not just saying that because they are using one of my songs. Here's what they say at

Director Darryl Roberts' provocative documentary examines America's fixation with outward appearance and the unrealistic standards of beauty dictated to the public by the media, pop culture and the fashion industry. Featuring interviews with fashion experts, media personalities and celebrities such as Mena Suvari and Aisha Tyler, the film looks at everything from plastic surgery's growing popularity to widespread concerns about eating disorders.

Interesting, right? It comes out on August 1st and it looks like it'll have a limited release in the United States. After that it seems it's going to go directly to DVD.....unless the movie gets picked up by a worldwide distributor. (Fingers crossed) Please get picked up, please get picked up, please get picked up. If it doesn't get picked up..well then sadly there will be no red carpet stroll for me. Hey, I'll be happy with a free copy of the DVD. And if I must, I'll even settle for previously viewed copy for $5.99.

You can check out the movies website here. I've also taken the liberty of posting the trailer below. Sadly the trailer does not include a clip of my song. It should. But it doesn't.

Oh look great..

Look, if you are wearing cut off jean/shorts, and we can see the bottom of your pockets hanging out. Let me be the one to tell you that you've cut them way too short. It's not a pretty look. I don't care how hot you think you look in them. I'm here to tell you that you don't. While I'm at it...the popped collar look...yeah..that looks stupid too. What I find amazing is when people combine both of these looks. So stupid..yet so bold. It's almost genius.

And fuck you Cat that off my chest.

FYI. I have never, in my entire life, have ever held a loaf of bread in my arms like this. Never.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

I went to Cold Stone yesterday for some ice cream and I have to say, I really don't get it. It just seems like a lot of extra work to me. For both the customer and the person working. If you are not familiar with the place, it's the ice cream joint where each flavor is hand mixed right before your very own eyes. It would much easier if they just made all the flavors in a big tub ready to go, instead of having this long process of watching them throw it all together and mix it up as if they were making the polio vaccine and saving the world. I mean...polio is pretty much gone but you get my point. No offense to anyone out there with polio. My 9th grade history teacher had polio. Her name was Ms. Dobbs. She was a real hoot. She liked ice cream. I think she's dead now. Man, 9th grade really sucked. But offense to anyone with polio.

I'm just saying....why all that mixing? Just scoop it out and put it into a dish for me.
