Bitter

Last night on the national news, someone said they would probably vote for Hillary Clinton instead of Barack Obama because he said people are bitter.

What?

Yeah, you know, I decide who should run the most powerful country in the world by one fucking statement that they made on one day.  Seriously, if he had said “upset” instead of “bitter” would have made any goddamn difference to anyone?  No.

And hey, I’ll admit, I’m bitter as Campari.

Last weekend The Jerks, had a show with two great bands The Copyrights and Teenage Bottlerocket in Dalton, Ga.  I drove 5 hours to get there and the fucking show was canceled 2 hours before we played.  Of course, the woman that ran the venue knew about the problem for days before the show, but we never heard about it.

Last night I drove to Asheville to see a band called Dead Mechanical.  The show didn’t happen.  Not much fun.

I’m famous, and other news

A few things for you today.

Evan and I went to a Teenage Bottlerocket show in Laramie while I was out there for Christmas with the family. During the show, they filmed part of their new music video for In The Basement off of their new album, Warning Device. When they show the crowd shots, I’m on the far left and Evan is behind me (he has a beard and glasses).

In other news, I’ve finished the artwork for the new Jerks CD EP. I really like it and think it’s some of the best album artwork I’ve done. I tried to keep it really simple, and I think it worked.

CD cover, Insert, Back

We’re having them printed professionally, and we should also have our t-shirts made by the end of the week. We’ll have stuff to sell at our show in Georgia on the 16th. Also, there’s a chance (which I’ve been told is about 98% confirmed) that we’re going to play a show with Teenage Bottlerocket and the Copyrights. They’re two amazing bands and basically what I’ve been listening to nonstop for the last few months.

It’s supposed to get up to 70 degrees here today. I can’t wait to go on a run.

Last of all, I’m capturing all of the video from my drive last Tuesday. I should hopefully have this edited and up for you to watch by this weekend.
