20 years in the making I finally put my first record out. Due to copious amount of weed smoking in my youth I don't remember much vividly. I remember being scared, love struck, and all that but I don't remember when and wheres.
But I do remember the first time I picked up a guitar. The first time I spoke into a mic. The first time I hit a drum. Hell, I remember banging on a fisher price piano in my high chair watching the muppets. I remember every fucking thing about those moments. The smell, the touch, everything.
There isn't much I've wanted to do in this life as much as play music, listen to music, be around music. It takes up most my days. Even when I'm writing sketch comedy or whatever, I have to be listening to the perfect album to write THAT sketch. Its pulled me out of depression, addiction, and even suicidal thoughts.
I don't know what this record will do for other people. I know we set out to make a rock record. Not prop comedy. But not preachy unfunny bullshit either. A rock record with lyrics that mattered to me. Lyrics about all of the horrible politics in this weird, about being a weirdo and setting out to find other weirdos.
Maybe this will make some of you feel less alone. I hope it does. Thats what music does for me everyday.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible! Go get it! Pass it around. Burn it for friends. This is just the beginning.
(2016/10/21) The last (thankfully) presidential debate: Trump calls Clinton “nasty woman,” refuses to accept election outcome if he loses, fear-mongers on late-term abortions
Episode #1548: CR needs your support! New dirty hobos will receive a combo pack of stickers (10 stickers!)
L.A.! Jamie performs at the Steve Allen Theater MONDAY Oct 24!
Maniac Mail from new members, all about the last presidential debate: audience laughs when Trump claims to respect women, right before he called Clinton a “nasty woman” (and as more women come forward with accusations of sexual assault), Trump’s fear-mongering on late-term abortions and refusal to accept election results (even though the RNC says it will accept them), Social Security is not broke, and no questions asked about climate change. Also, Emmett Till’s memorial sign is riddled with bullet holes, two inmates have died during nationwide prison strike, women in Argentina go on strike to protest brutal rape and murder of girl, Julian Assange’s internet is being curbed in Ecuador out of fear he is interfering with the U.S. election, President Obama calls out Marco Rubio for continuing to support Trump, Trump’s political director steps back from campaign, and Bill Kristol gets into it with Morning Joe hosts over Trump
