    In B Flat

    A collaborative music project, really big emphasis on atmosphere. Fantastic stuff. Play any of the videos in any order and in any combination. It's a really unique experience, I spent hours listening to this stuff earlier today.

    Withdrawls Suck

    I've been focusing on cutting down on my caffeine intake the past two weeks because I realized that having my heart beating an accelerated rate throughout pretty much the entire day isn't exactly a good thing.

    This Is Killing Me

    Just last night my right pedal felt like something happened to it, or it might have been the head, I have absolutely no idea. The sound produced is completely fine, but I have to put so much more force into the pedal to make it make contact with the head than I should. It's incredibly affecting...
