Art Sale

To help cover some of the costs for my upcoming tour with Chuck Ragan I am going to be selling some art in all shapes and sizes. My hope is that some of them are small enough that if you’ve ever tried to bid on a larger piece and missed out, now’s your chance. I only have a month left so I’m not sure how many I will be able to do (especially considering that I normally paint standing up and this ankle thing is really messing that up) but I’m determined to do my best. If you get sick of me peddlin’ my wears maybe unsubscribe for a bit Here is the first in a series of literature inspired pieces that are “book sized”… 5X7 inches, to be exact

The Most Awesome Salad Ever

I invented the most awesome salad ever and I wanted to share it with you.

Careful, there are some f-bombs in here and that’s just cause I’m god damn passionate about cooking. Oh and also I’m the best at it. And I’m humble as shit.

Stop Swearing, Liars

First you get some lettuces, whatever kind you think are the best.

Then you put some steamed broccoli on there.
You can also put some carrots in when the broccolis are a-steamin, it’s your salad man do whatever the fuck you want.
You can also put some peppers in there I guess too. I mean, if you want to ruin everything.

Then you add some chick peas. make sure you drain and wash them and don’t just dump a whole can in. DO NOT use the dry kind that you have to soak overnight cause seriously WHO HAS THAT KIND OF TIME.

Cut up some little squares of veggie ham. I know, it sounds weird, but you’ll thank me when you’re older. I guess you can use real ham. I mean, if you’re a murderer.

Then you top with tiny cubes of cheese (vegan if you want) and ground hemp seed. Make sure it’s the kind that looks like sawdust and not the seed-y looking kind. It’s going to look fuckin disgusting but trust me on this. It’s fucking good for you and I’m trying to keep you from dying so quickly.

Gawd.

Top with balsamic vinaigrette. Eat often. Drink with 1-14 tiny coffees. Rinse. Repeat.

You’re welcome.

Fuckin delicious

Surprise! I’ve Been In London This Whole Time Making A New Album With Frank Turner

Surprise!

You may have thought that I was learning a new song every day for the 31 Covers in 31 Days Project, but I was actually in London, England making a new album with Frank Turner!

Video number 32 is an original song from my upcoming new album produced by Frank and to be released on Xtra Mile Recordings (home of Against Me!, Tim Barry, Dave Hause, Northcote, Frank Turner, The Riverboat Gamblers, Vinnie Caruana and more).

Here we are rehearsing our duet “This Sure As Hell Ain’t My Life” at Reservoir Studios. Video by Ben Morse. More updates and information to come but for now, please pre-order the new album HERE.

if you know me, you know that I secretly wish all these songs were Ryan Adams songs. Here’s one for old time’s sake.
