  2. Meanwhilst Mr. Harms contemplates his thumb, us fellow moon things have been keeping active around town, invading your eyes with our newest stencil courtesy of Moon Kat Kurran (aka Kayla).

    And, hey, Jake’s been making progress so he should be back on the ol’ geetar in no time. In the meantime, we’re still going to Slingshot Fest, March 22nd in Athens, GA. We’ve got an old friend in the area to support Jake’s instrumental absence. See y’all there!

  3. Accident

    image

    mope

    All the books in
    my childhood made me a nice person.
    If i didn’t have to live
    i could love more easily.
    i would suffer and ask for help with it because i could.
    the wood of my scalp
    and my small self
    and your small self
    are intertwined in the molecules of snow in the backyard
    the neighbor’s daughter told me to come pick up eddy’s poop
    told me he went three times —
    twice the runny kind, one time the solid kind, she said
    all of 6 years old, dressed
    like a bottle of ketchup
    she watched while i went out in sweatpants
    and my soft cast and old converse with the holes
    plunged thru the snow with a glad bag
    threw the poop in the trash
    told her not to call my dog
    "poopface"
    then said “see you later.”

    Sad to let everyone know this, but we won’t be making it to sxsw this year. Yesterday, my last day of work before tour, a circular saw I was using kicked and sliced my hand in two places — severing the tendon in my thumb. I’ll recover & be able to play in the future, but have to go into surgery monday and keep my thumb immobile for about 6 weeks. Feeling pretty bummed, but I guess this is why people remind you so incessantly that the tools used for contracting/carpentry are so dangerous, and I feel lucky that I’ll be able to make a full, if somewhat gradual, recovery.
