I’ve been working on a new religion that has no original thought
Nothing new, just what you think mixed with my own, throw it in the pot
We’ll discuss the words that made it this far down
Compare, contrast, we’ll take all of the differents out
Wake up in the morning, we’re no further along
Till a man stands up and starts to sing this brand new song
If we’re gonna talk about it
Let’s at least try to narrow it down

I sleep under a blank ceiling
My dreams rarely have a meaning
In between is a nothing that I created
I wake up mean, thinking of everything I ever hated
I think there’s a ghost living inside of me
It controls most of everything that I see
In 2011, I started and finished:
8 stories, some short, some shorter
I’m perfectly fine with these numbers looking back, while during the year I felt a constant anxiety of not “doing anything.” I think it’s mostly due to a lack of discipline. I wrote in short bursts whenever it wanted to come out. In 2012, I’ll be working toward a creative routine.
This is a video I made of the Thinker Thought Records 10 year anniversary show in Peoria, IL.
I play bass in the last band, Scouts Honor. The day of this show was the first time I’d played with these guys or picked up a bass in 5 years.
Here’s a 5-song EP you can download or listen to.
