I can't be still when life's in technicolor and stereo.

You can blame it on the weather.

Short Answers


Here’s something that I’ve worked on to (hopefully) find its way into the upcoming Short Answers album. This is a demo and Matt’s started working on the much prettier sounding version of it. Hope you enjoy it!

Really into her.

La Dispute

—Woman (Reading)


And I pause where I am for a second when I hear your name
Sometimes I think I see your face in improbable places
Do those moments replay for you?
When I’m suddenly there and then won’t go away
When you’re sitting in the living room reading for the afternoon
Do you put your book down, look and try to find me there?

Have been playing this song almost exclusively for the past week.


11d 6h 57m: Red returns to Pallet Town

It’s a little late since by now we’ve already beaten the Elite Four, but I’ve been thinking a lot about Twitch Plays Pokemon since I started following the playthrough. I like to believe Red was given a Charmander as a pre-trained Pokemon to help him/his mom with some badly progressing illness while Oak helped find a cause and/or a treatment. I’d imagine it would have been hard on his mother after he disappeared on his journey, and I like to think it was a really nice moment when he returned home safe and sound before heading off to Cinnabar. Now he’s gone and done what some thought impossible—he’s become the Champion. You did it, Red. We’re all so proud of you. 

Knowing I can be better than this to everyone. 

For everything.

The first song we ever recorded. Really not bad for something recorded in a couple hours on Audacity (and I believe touched up on Acid Pro). 

No idea how we managed to get the end part to sound reminiscent of violins.
