On my way to The Colbert Report. Can't wait to hear me and Ian's laughs on TV.

The Age of Exploration

A lapse of judgment from more than one angle
Lets hungry arms just eat themselves instead
The task at large forgotten in a moment
The minuscule movement of the second hand

Well god forbid
I find someone
To keep up with this storm
Instead I find
The normal kind
That keeps me longing for more and more

One more minute till I fall in love
Two more hours before your mine
Three short days I'll spend under your spell
Four weeks rest assured I'll run and hide

Well god forbid
I find someone
To keep up with this flood
To finally find
The grace and guile
To flow over what is and was

This dissonance
Reminds me why
I keep to myself

Why I remai
n
A lonely fly
Trapped on the top shelf

Because Love will bring us together
And God will tear us apart
Love will bring us together
And God will tear us apart

When I call for the future
I'm greeted with the past
By my own rules and regulations
I know
That love can't last
Forever
Forever
There's so many things we haven't accounted for
Forever
Forever
Forever.





Just wrote this as fast as I could while my mind rambled it off. I'm sure I missed some in the moment but that's okay; I've come to terms with getting a decent percentage of what I've created. The song is done, I just really need to find some place/one that will let me or help me record. Its brutal to not have any equipment here.

Things are well, I really hope you are too.

Love always,

-Twelve Hearts Muse.

TJ LAZER MAKES IT BIG!

For the first time in EVER I've been featured on the interwebbings without my own promotion.

This french website puts up a monthly mixtape curated by my good friend Steph Lund.
I'm extremely happy and satisfied to finally be able to get my music out to the pseudo masses without mindless self promotion (aka myspace). Steph isn't one to put up just any music either; she's known to be quite specific about what music she will listen to and I'm honored to be the final track on a great playlist that gets 500+ downloads a month.

Find it HERE and let me know what you think.




The world falls apart as it seems to come together

The pools of dancing birds creating clouds of dusty feathers

If everything I knew at once became what I had never

I'd fill my mind with happy thoughts of cats and sunny weather

Four Seasons Reprise

I know there's trouble
Brewing outside
My open window
Tonight

I know there's trouble
Brewing inside
My open mind
Tonight

So will I will I pass the test
How will I finish all the rest
I've already cheated a couple times
On the most important questions

So I'll put myself in the place
Where only the smoke can escape
And climb up towards the light
To the clean air on the other side

I know that spring is
Growing outside
my open window
Tonight

I know that summer's
Burning inside
My closed mind
Tonight

So will I fall between your lines
Or will I hit the edge this time
Well time is running thin
And my watch is all but working

So I'll put myself in the place
Where only the light can escape
My own black hole of problems
Where did all the money and time go

I know that autumn's
Falling outside
My open window
Tonight

I know that winter's
Freezing inside
my open mind
Tonight

So could I ever melt the snow
That's iced over all my windows
I'm finding it hard to believe
That "things will work out eventually"

Your disease flows over me
I'm trying to see through this broken screen
What terrible things these seasons bring
Torn bone from bone
I'm better off alone.




Hopefully this will be recorded soon
a video will accompany it; already brewing in my mind.

Love always,
Garibaldi Romeo.

What a wild time.
Lots of news and lots of fun.

my new favorite hangout- Schwieger Household; nightly music hour.  Teaching is the new black.


South Dakota is for lovers.
T'aint nothin' wrong with a little bump n grind (50s train diner)

OH
I'm still obsessed with timed photos
In order:  50's train diner, Some old trail through Wyoming


Now then; where was I....
Oh yes, I left you at 4th of July.

No, you're eyes do not deceive you; I was wearing the shortest shorts there.  (BYE NORA HAVE FUN IN MINNEAPOLIS JERK(loveyou)!)

It really was a blast; even if my bike kept breaking and I had to watch the fireworks from the manhattan bridge.  STILL AWESOME.
NEXT STORY
Awwww my Leesiaanna gals moved away (as did Paulie but I'll see him again duh).  Sad to see them go; super solid gang o ladies.


Maybe one day I'll go to the south.  Until then I'll just keep making up handshakes and emailing it to them.
NEXT UP
Nichole bought the coolest camera in the world.  It's like a polaroid but takes tiny tiny photos that are delightful.
Have a taste:

A wonderful overview of several nights; here's a bigger taste.

zomg I love Gina; this is us switching photo faces.


NEXT
hokay I think that's all the tinypics (for now)
I know you're probly pissed cause I don't ever update it and when I do there's way too much stuff to ever be able to handle. GETOVERIT!

Dear Steph, you're awesome.
Dear Kristen, where are all of the cute pictures of us?!?

IN OTHER NEWS:
IIIIIII - Was on a boat:
Made some pillows:

Made some messes:

And traveled what felt like was across the globe:

In the words of Ian Vens; "Seacrest out."
I know there's trouble
brewing
outside
my open window
tonight
I know there's trouble
brewing
inside
my open mind
tonight
So will I will I pass the test
How will I finish all the rest
I've already cheated a couple times
On the most
Important questions
So I'll put myself in the place
Where only the smoke can escape
And climb up towards the light
Toward the clean air
On the other side.

And then I kissed the rest of the US goodbye and moved as far east as I could go without being in Maine's Mitten.

Needless to say I've made some amazing friends and had some amazing times.  I wish I would take more pictures but relying on other people to do it seems to work just fine. 

Birthday party in upstate new york:

image 
Yes, there was a massive slip n slide.
image
image
And yes, they are swim trunks; netting and everything.

image
image 

And in more recent news, just some great times.
A mix of shows, bars, work, sleep, food, and plenty of other things has made my life wonderful.  I'd give you a more intense update but I've got laundry to do.

image

image 

OH YEAH AND I GOT A BIKE (thanks brice)

image

 

Thats all for now; I promise to be less shady about it.  Time to eat some food and get ready for festivities tomorrow.  I'll bring my camera, I promise.

 

I never thought it'd be so easy
to climb right out of my shell
to grab your leg up through those clouds
and drag you with me down to hell
I never claimed to be the leader
of this group you call your friends
but who will be there honey
oh who will be there in the end
