the science of dwindling keys

my friend has this theory about keys:
that if you hold on to them after you relocate to a new place
and they no longer serve their intended use
they will form a vacuum in space
draining and sucking life from everything that surrounds them
into a black spiral of the great nothing
to twist and churn like new molasses
or corroded motor oil rotting in an engine block
a forgotten car carcass on the lawn
a vacuole in a cell that stores no water
caving itself in

R.I.P. – Magic Cliff

I received some disheartening news that Cliff Gustafson passed away this week. If any of you have spent time at the Twilight Exit you may have seen Cliff slamming cards into the ceiling decked out in his signature tux.

Over the past month I began filming a music video project for my close friends in Duesenjaeger, an amazing melodic Deutschpunk band from Osnabrück, Germany. I first met the band in 2012 while on tour with my band Countdown to Armageddon, when the two of us played a gig together in Leipzig on a European tour. I was immediately blown away, and we became fast friends over several beers. A couple years later we would collaborate on the Duesenjaeger / Countdown to Armageddon split 7″ [which I did the photography and design for], and we did a mini tour of western and central Germany together to celebrate in 2014.
