I'm at the SHERATON in friggin Lawrence Kansas. The ALKALINE TRIO always get one hotel room to shower in and I am here all alone while they are soundchecking. This is better than any vacation. Thank you Alkaline Trio for being so friggin good to me. No big bands of this magnitude have ever taken me on tour, so I feel so blessed to be able to be here.

And now the good news is that they are going to take me to ENGLAND with them. I had a tour booked, but now I'm going to join up with their tour. I'm a winner!! Damn it.. I'M A WINNER!!!

I played my first show last night in Boulder, Colorado. What a beautiful place. Add Boulder to the list of cities I could llive. One day I'll move all over the world and experience everything I can. Anyways, great show. Tons of energy. Nice kids. big smiles and a fun time by everyone.

I'm short on time. I'd love to elaborate on the fun I'm having, but I've got to get back to the club and set up merchandise. Be well.
