I’m having a hard time describing the feeling I felt when I opened this box about an hour ago. It was complex. I felt excitement. I felt relief. I felt nostalgia and sadness. I felt proud. I felt very happy and really nervous at once and all for about 20 seconds.
Thanks to Ethan and Steffen and all of the dudes who played instruments and everyone else involved in the production of this thing and the couple of babes that broke my heart and whose hearts I maybe broke a little too for this moment. It was a powerful feel I never felt before. Made this whole period of my life really, really worth living and I won’t soon forget it.

what is your favorite color? (this is your fav dream neighb)

depends, Mugz. I like certain drab shades of green and brown, but I wouldn’t want my orange to look like that, ya know?

Hey there! You passed through Eau Claire a while ago and played at Gilbert garage, and I still play my copy of In a Whelming Tide that i bought that night, and now I can't stop listening to Spent! Love your music!

Hey, thanks! I’m really glad to hear that! So glad you’re still listening. 
That was a memorable night, indeed. I think I got drunk after that show and went wading in the river with Shane Leonard and we found a big clam.
