The only time to think and wind down. Just you and me and the open road. The highways hum and the songs we know.
Artists Should Be Curators On Streaming Services
Virgin published an article pondering the question of how artists should use streaming services to their general advantage. Curation seems like a very smart answer.
Setting my alarm so I don’t lose sleep.
Stuck. Forever the feeling. Even looking on to this endless beach. Nothing but the waves crashing and reforming and recovering and destroying themselves and everything around them. Toes dug into the sand. Ten tiny anchors keeping you grounded. As if it were that simple. As if it was all you needed. The Ocean spits upon my face. The salty spray, forcing me to question my sexuality, is comforting. This whole scene should be comforting. It’s making me think. I don’t think in these states. Bingeing on every idea. Every possible situation. A million hypothetical moments never to see the light of day. Not making it to the next minute. Only to be replaced, and misplaced and lost and forgotten. Endless wonder. Countless pieces of glass. Anchored. Stuck. Weighted down. Infinity in front of me. Tainting me. Teasing me. Holding my hand as She walks me to the edge. “Stand by the stairs while I take your picture, dear.” I imagined this as I forced myself to doze off. But I’m so tired that I can’t sleep.
Running down the street. Sun beaming. Birds singing. Cars flying by. Moving so fast you can’t keep up with your life. You’ll never know innocence. You’ll never know love. You’ll look in the mirror and never get enough. The sweats streaming. Every bodies watching. Muscles shifting. Now you’re pretending. None of this is real. And you’re right. This isn’t real life. It’s just tonight. And tomorrow. Everyday is the same. Not breaking the cycle because you want to play the game.

Mike Skinner of the Goddamn Band & Miracle of 86 passed away this weekend.
Mike played on, toured on, and/or co-produced “Make The Clocks Move”, “Split The Country, Split The Street”, “Put Your Ghost To Rest” & “Brother’s Blood”, as well as Miracle’s “Every Famous Last Word” & “Last Gasp”.
Mike was my friend. He was charismatic, generous, tasteful, singular, brilliant, hilarious; he was a whirlwind, a magnet.
It’s impossible to overstate his contribution to the development of Miracle & KD+GDB, but, in short, he made us better, more interesting. More than almost any other person, he encouraged me to push myself, to be confident, to take my talent seriously, because he did.
Mike was dynamic, complex, and beautiful. My life’s richer & a lot more more colorful for the 12 years I got to have him in it. He loved to play for you guys and took a lot of pride in the records we made & tours we did.
He leaves a wonderful family. Keep them in your thoughts.
