My lonely life without the band.

Well, as I'm the only member of this band who doesn't live in the state of Oregon, I occasionally feel compelled to write a post about my so-called life in South Carolina In hopes that my fellow rockers won't forget about me entirely.

Well, it's been another eventful weekend. Our good friend Bobby Shook visited me for two days, and we worked on scoring his short film "Loyalties" which is scheduled for release this summer. We also went to see "3:10 to Yuma" starring Christian Bale and Russel Crowe. For the record, it was a beautiful film that really brings back all that is good in the oldschool westerns. It was based on a classic western story. It had Louis L'amour's fingerprints all over it although, strangely, he didn't write it. And Crowe and Bale both lived up to expectations. I could almost feel a professional competition of sorts between the two. I think it drove both of them to perform on a higher level than usual, even for them. I'd give the film four and a half stars.

In the parking lot of the theater, we ran over a small, stuffed teletubby. Upon realizing what we had just hit, we backed up and ran over it several more times. After all, any fool knows it isn't wise to run down a teletubby unless you're prepared to finish the job.

So, in case anyone's memory is growing hazy over the months, there are still six members of this band. I'm not gone. I'm just a little bit not there right now. I'll bottle another message and throw it out to sea again in a few weeks. Until then, this is Jeremy signing off.

Austin's Awards #2

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the future.

These guys rock it hard. All thumbs in a upward position.

As for in the mirror wasting my life singles, that honor goes to Matchbox 20’s Bed of Lies. I laughed, I cried, it moved me. And the dresser. I ran in to it really hard.

(Remember children: These kind of songs are best enjoyed with a loud surround speaker system, a large reflective surface so you can see what your moves look like and some sort of device that could somehow be thought of as a mic, i.e a hairbrush, Banana, used toilet paper roll…etc.)

With love from Portland,

All Your FAQ’s Answered!

Due to the enormity of questions we have been receiving from our many fans; we thought it would be best to create a rather informal FAQ about us. Below you will find everything you need to know for life, well being and happiness.

Pretty much explains everything,


Longterm plans:

As you all know, our first album, "Neon Shore" has been released. We're all very happy with the end result of the album, and thrilled to see where all this is going to take us. But more than anything, "Neon Shore" has left us all desperate to get back into the studio. We feel that the quality of our material is only going to improve from here on, and a good bit of preliminary songwriting has already been done in hopes that we will have another album out relatively soon.
So this is just a heads-up for anyone who's interested in knowing. We aren't going into the studio until we're done promoting "Neon Shore", but there is definitely more coming. We'll be giving you more on the story of our next album as it unfolds.

Thanks for reading,
