my goal is to blog 2x every day on this mama jamma

Dylan, Coulter, Os, and Whalen of the Brothers Steve

i had 250 posts last year, which is less than 1 a day.

2 a day would be over 725.

i can do this. it’s just writing. marc brown’s wife told me she was amazed that i could just write like NBD. i told her i was amazed that people can’t write like NBD. just tell the story.

this picture is from when i interviewed the Brothers Steve in Os’ backyard.

it was a very awkward interview because we have all been friends for longer than the Internet existed.

and for some reason we had never talked about their music on the record before.

i think they were afraid id let out some weird secrets and i was afraid they wouldnt tell me weird secrets.

but it was a beautiful interview in the end and it sounds so good. and it was shorter than most of my others, but anyways at the end of it i said lets take some pics for the website

but i didnt use any of the pics because they seemed so posed, an unnatural.

also without Solomon, it’s not the full band. and i wouldn’t want to set a poor example for The Future.

this is the 21st year of the busblog

can you believe any of that?

today i made black eyed peas, which i dont think ive ever done.

the bag said it would take 3 hours, but for some reason i boiled them for 22 minutes and they were all, here we are now, entertain us.

opened a can of Glory collard greens, i had some white rice in the fridge.

toasted some buns. and boom. new years.

it’s quieter this year than last.

last year new years eve was the foreshadowing that we didnt have long together.

i built a fire, found something good on tv. and she sat next to the tv, but not near me.

i said im not sure things get any more romantico than this, dont you wanna come overby me

and she didnt budge.

a week later she was gone, forever.

so there you have it, one minute you have a raging fire, which on instagram means boning on a bear skin rug, but IRL means not one thing.

i hope where ever she is tonight shes happy and full and thinking good thoughts.

lord knows im about to do just that.
