chasing down the smoke

photo: grand army plaza - with friends jamie & moses - 1.9.11


we've been writing lots recently.
a bunch of garageband snippits with temporary titles like "google maps" and "liska jam."
particularly excited about a new one called "small town bands"
it was born out of that neil young acoustic deserty sound scape and feeling.
then we scrapped that recording and started over.  can't describe it anymore.

brando (best bud/castledoor bassist) sent us some demos recently.
we really freaked - they sound so fresh and amazing.
it's more soulful than anything we've ever done.
i sang a chorus on one of them...hopefully we'll finish it soon.
we're gonna send him "small town bands" so he can add parts to it.
should be an interesting experiment.

snowed in

at my work there is a rule that they're responsible for providing a taxi ride home if you work past midnight.  thank goodness, cause i had a shift that lasted till 4am this week...just after one of the worst blizzards in new york history.

it started snowing here the day after christmas and didn't stop for 24 straight hours.  it's been pretty intense considering we have to walk about a mile to the train every day.  but also, kinda fun.

here are two photos from the morning after the blizzard.

first, the view across the street from our house:

there were so many abandoned vehicles.  including cabs, police cars, ambulances and buses like this one:

 i took these photos with my christmas present from liska:
