i am playing in louisville next sunday at a suicide prevention event. i’m not sure this is such a great idea. all the songs that i know are so sad… i am having a hard time putting together a 40 minute set where i never really explicitly come out in favor of death. please come by if you can. i am a tremendous jackass and this will be a fundraiser for a very good cause.

jonathan and i saw this very nice mr. lubie instant oil change sign right next to a very creepy christian billboard somewhere in indiana yesterday. i think there is some sort of meaning here but it is hard to pin down exactly… there are probably a lot of mr. lubie tattoos in that town i guess.
