There are no strong men. There are no beautiful women.

Cleaning out the old hard drive.....

So my friend Dan that takes a lot of photos for us and has helped us out with artwork and stuff over the years just sent me an email reminding me how awesome myself and Kennedy were back in high school.....haha. Its a photo from one of the bands we were in back in the day before TWY. Needless to say, this one didn't make the final cut...


p.s. Has anyone seen Mike Phelan...?

Writing writing writing...

So, while we're battling with classes and work we've been getting together and writing some stuff for the new record. We're working on one tonight called New Years with Carl Weathers. This is what happens when I can't remember the lyrics:

In other news, an article I wrote for AMP Magazine online is getting some cool attention, check that out if you have time and my class and I are working on a mural project. We gridded out a picture we wanted to use, made it bigger and let each kid color a part of it. We're about 70% done:

Way to be America!

Today, Barack Obama was sworn in and, while I understand this is a big deal for a lot of us, I don't think we can even fathom the amount that it touched some people. I replayed his speech for my class of first graders and they were glued to the screen with the proudest looks on their faces. One girl looked like she was about to cry and, while they might not have known what every word President Obama said meant, they knew this was historic and important.

Life in Early January

In one week, I will be 23. That is a weird feeling. At my age, my parents were busy raising me and when I was younger, I assumed that was the norm, so I figured by now, I'd be married with at least one baby. I was way off. However, I did move in with my girlfriend Jess this week. Here's a picture of the Ikea dresser I put together all by myself.

Life is back to teaching and riding bikes. I'm getting ready for my last semester of classes and just trying to hang out and relax before things get really hectic. I'm working on a few things for Wonder Years (New lyrics, interviews, a guest blog for AMP Magazine, and some new merch online) but am mostly just existing. Tonight, we went and saw The Wrestler which was fucking awesome. I'm not a big movie guy but I loved this and you should see it when it opens nationwide on Friday. Oh yea, and GO EAGLES!
