regarding the soul scene (bka truths)
i love music. i love good music. i love to sing. music lives in me (as it does all of us). i don’t like boxes. i don’t like a whole lot of things. i don’t like phony people (much). but i guess when i give them hugs i’m being phony, huh? sometimes when someone is on stage, i turn away because i don’t love what they’re doing or what they’re giving. soon, i...

#1 - whose idea was this anyway?!??
sometimes i have to laugh at myself for the last two three… no maybe four weeks, i’ve been too busy to do much laughing and i’m the one who talks so hard about balance - harumph! anyway, i’m in a tour van (not on tour just yet) with my people The Paxtons and a whole crew of other talented cool people on the way down to SXSW in Austin and i HAVE to laugh at myself for...

[this is] the real deal (,sid)
