Tobias and Rescue Me...

If you all can't tell by my posts lately, I'm very bored out here. Today was dope though. Some friends from Medina/Cleveland came out for Supremes new release of a collaboration with Neighborhood a Japanese clothing company. My friends arrived to Supreme at 9am to wait on line. (on line is a NY thing. They don't say 'in' they say 'on'. and when in pizza shops its always 'to stay?' or 'to go?') Back to the point, my friends waited on line for 4 or 5 hours until they were let in the store. I didn't wait around. My friend Taylor and I got back on the grind and walked the streets. We did so until 7pm. It was a day packed full of walking and visiting some awesome street-wear shops hidden throughout Soho and the Lower East Side. We stopped for a slice and I spotted an Agnostic Front shirt and some other skin looking dudes hanging. We were at St. Marks and Bowery, so I guess that is appropriate. While shopping earlier in the day we ran across David Cross

and Denis Leary. After Googling Mr. Leary, I read that he was born and grew up in Worcester Massachusetts, where my friend Peanut frequents often and always raves about. But, the highlight of the evening was I got to see The Baby Skins perform at The Sidewalk Cafe. The Baby Skins have been a band for a long time and are very talented women. Be sure to check their space www.myspace.com/thebabyskins.
After hanging with the girls from the band (we've been friends for a while, I wasn't being a groupie) I began to walk to the subway. Almost there I came across a diner with free wifi, and after an american cheese omelet, french fries, and rye toast i was able to drop this blog. It's time to make the hour and something trip back to Coney Island, last stop on the D train. I'll be listening to the NEW Right Idea songs. There's five. Don't you wish you could hear them...


Fifty on Red...

So, it's 1:20am in Vegas and I just got done practicing some songs in the hallway of the hotel after a long day of gambling and hanging at lake mead. What can I say? Vegas is no pace for X-mas, but we tried, and are still trying I suppose. We're up on the College Football bets and down on roulette--we also picked up some home team change betting the Cavs yesterday.

Twenty minutes outside of town, the scenery changes to that of a Rob Zombie film. Trailers, mountains, desert. Tight.

Humming FP's 'fifty on red' and thinking about betting the over in Cal and Air Force. Life. Is. Good.

The Brothers Hough-Snee and one 'Snee Man.'


It was just brought to my attention that wearing my Right Idea jacket around the NYC made me into a walking billboard. So much that it caught the eye of some fans of the band as well as the man who drew up our shirt artwork, Spoiler. The story is, i was spotted last Thursday somewhere in the city. I can not recall exactly where that day led me, but i do know i went to the swatch store in Times Sq sometime last week while wearing my jacket. I was headed there to pick up a new guard for my X Rated Swatch. I guess the dudes were in a car and yelled while still driving 'Right Idea' and 'Straight Ahead', but i failed to hear : ( They were on their way to hang out with Cro-Mags legend, John Joseph at his book signing for his new book: The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon. Until tonight, I had no idea about this signing or about the book release. I would have been there for sure if i knew about it. I wonder where this was at? I checked Amazon and the book is not there. I really wish Spoiler and friends would have stopped me, that would have been awesome to meet and possibly hang with them. On another note, I've found some awesome blogs and think they are cool enough to share so here you go.

In entertainment news, today i caught There Will Be Blood at a matinée showing. It was opening day and the theater was packed. According to my research, it is only showing at the AMC Lincoln Center 13 on 66th and Broadway. I saw it at 2:30p and like i said, there wasn't a seat open. The movie almost lasted 3 hours. I really enjoyed it though. I recommend it if you're bored. Although, i don't think it is out yet in Ohio. Look it up before you head to the show just to be safe. Other movies i have seen recently, I Am Legend and Juno. Both were very good. Be sure to check out the soundtrack to Juno. Kimya Dawson and The Moldy Peaches are all over it. Pretty cool i think. That's all i have for now. See you on the third of Jan at The Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio.

Live from New York it's...

ME. Just an update on my status. I arrived in the city early saturday morning. Although my luggage did not, it came today around 6:30pm. I was bummed.  But, it was nice taking the M60 bus to Queens, the Q train to Atlantic Ave, and then the N train to Coney Island without a huge bulky bag. The weather here is COLD. We were supposed to get a nasty storm last night, but it never came. My bass made the journey with me. I have to practice for our show coming up on the 3rd of January with Have Heart and DTN. I will not be back until the 2nd if you're missing me. I've been searching for shows here, but no luck. If anyone can help me out I'd love it. I just received the RevHQ newsletter and the only show in the NYC was some band I've never heard of, more reason to go right? Probably won't. 5 new songs!! Keep an eye out... or an ear open.


Show News! New Shows!

Spoiler® Alert!

No word yet on how this is going to be used, but stoked to be working with Spoiler! Keep on the lookout for shirts, posters, etc. soon!
