Santa’s Naughty & Nice List for Me and My Twitter Friends

In light of...

Sock Monkey: “Sock Puppet Murder Manifesto” EP (Free MP3 Download)

Danny J. Gibson and I wrote and recorded this together in one day in the summer of 1999 at his parents’ house in Meadville, MO. It is absolutely terrifying. We were both 20 at the time. Danny created the art for this cassette-only release, which was only reproduced twice – once for me, and once for...
