New songs

SO there are a handful of people in Gambier, Columbus, and Dayton who have heard these but we have two brand new songs which we are VERY excited about. They are called

I Can Lift a Car
Quesadilla (working title)

The latter has nothing to do with mexican food, but we don't know what to call it.
And since I don't really have anything else to say in this post, enjoy this:

Don't know what to do.... about my Clog-a-roo!

"Are you blogging about my clog-a-roo?" said my mom.

"No, mom. I'm blogging about last night's DOPE show," I repliethed.

"We're all stars now, in the dope show," added Marilyn Manson.

"I don't wanna keep typing like this," I told Marilyn. He winked at me. LOOOO.

SO! Last night's Dayton show at One Eyed Jack's (NOT Blind Bob's) was cray-cray and tunsafun. LOOOO. Zoh-em. Gee.
Adrian couldn't play the show wif us cuzza his cuzzih was visitih. BUT we jammed out with the drummer of Tanuki who followed our every move for the whole two hours and Charlie Cromer who did not quite follow our every move but was sick nasti. And Jerome was a sweet backup dancer, pitcher player, and bottlist. Fiddlisk. All in all, everyone had an awesome night and we can't wait to play Dayton again.

Now, we will leave you with this gem - It's So Cold in the D by Detroit hip-hop bigshot T-Baby. Cuz when it's cold, how can anyone keep peace?

Much luvv.

Adumn and Nick Ell.

oh my god. i was speechless

if you don't know this song already, then you're in for a double-treat. slash a double-religious-experience. keep in mind this is a fan video, i.e. some guy decided to do this just cause he wanted to.

My guitarra!

So I was in a small shop in Cleveland and there was ONE classical guitar in it - it wasn't a guitar shop, it was a mexican handicraft shop - and I played it. Just beautiful. Anywho I found out some specs on it, and it was handmade from here:

Paracho, Michoacan, Mexico!

I may get it, although it is more money than I initially wanted to spend. Yamaha, suck it - I'm going with Mexican-made!

Classical guitar

I want a classical guitar. I decided a few days ago after my car broke down and I spent the afternoon wandering around Chagrin Falls, Ohio with my girlfriend and her mom. I'm looking at some really nice yamahas and trying to figure out if I want a flamenco guitar or a straight up classical guitar. I think I'm gonna play some at Buddy Rogers tomorrow. Woot! I'm gonna be like these guys:

raccoon-dogs, super mario, and dayton, OH


Tanuki, Tanuki, Tanuki.

wtf is Tanuki?

Tanuki (狸 or タヌキ), if you were not aware, is the name of the Japanese raccoon-dog prevalent in J. folklore and legend, often associated with mischief and shapeshifting. You may be more familiar with this delightful image from the early 1990's:

I had no idea why the f&%^ Mario could fly and/or morph into a stone statue whenever he put on a furry raccoon suit, but, after some research, now I know. And so do you.

And here is Super Mario, as he is want to do, terrorizing some Japanese wayfarers with his enormous scrotum.


ahem, I'm back. sorry had to go scrub my eyes with a soapy toothbrush.

so anyway we're playing in Dayton on the 24th with our talented and attractive friend Kelly Fine and this sweet fusion band called, of course, "Tanuki".

below: Kelly Fine, not bearing her scrotum.

in the meantime, lend an eye to our show dates, we're playing OH like it's hot. we'll be in the Cincinnati area this friday at the Madison @ 9pm.

Returning from the Cig Bity

Hey everyone,

I'm coming back to OH tomorrow! Gonna record guitarz and maybe step on over to Kenyon for a little dependin' on the band's schedule. I am going from the depressing New York fall weather to the beautiful Ohio fall, only to see it turn a good old fashioned monochromatic Ohio winter.

If anyone would like to get together and moan and tear their hair and lie around on the ground waiting for despair to swallow us whole, please let's do.

In other news, I am getting acquainted with a wonderful group called the New York Songwriters Circle ( and I went to their Folk Noise Showcase at Think Coffee today and saw a bunch of really killer songwriters, the killer-est of whom was Caleb Hawley, who absolutely blew my mind. Go to his myspace and get a little sugar, because it's abundant and he can really cut.

so, yeah, anyone else excited for a winter of crushing depression and ennui?


P.S. a big aww shucks to the below. Thanks Nick P.

I am in Florida. Flo-rida.

Greetings from Florida!! Im in orlando visiting my brother for the weekend and seeing him play a bisexual lover in a Christopher Durang play. Woot!

Big show in Cincinnati this coming Friday, Oct. 9th at the Madison Theater, by the way! We have tickets and if you want to buy them through us before the show you can email us at

More from flo-rida soon.

rawk on,
