Okay so I missed my one post a week goal last week. Whatever. No one reads this stuff anyway. Well, that's not true. You're reading it, right? Thanks.

I'm finally back in Colorado now after a week long tour of North Carolina with my old band Cast Iron Filter. It was thrilling to perform all those songs again, especially with such good friends. I'd also like to say thank you to everyone who came out to the shows - you guys are super awesome.

I've been able to get back to writing this week, which has been wonderful and immensely therapeutic. At the moment I've conjured up around 30-40 ideas, only 6-7 of which are actually worth pursuing though. I'm trying my best to be patient. Even though the songs are coming along, I'm not sure they fit together quite yet. It's simply going to take more time and experimentation until this new project comes into focus.

Regardless, the bigger problem at the moment is making it through this heat wave. We've had 5 straight days over 100 with no air-conditioning here. I think it's only supposed be in the high 90s for the next week though. Stupendous!

Ok it's too hot to sit here and type. Stay cool everyone...
