tell me something good ❤️

It’s that time of the week, when I ask you please oh please! Let’s talk about some good things! ❤️

1. Vierundviersig 🌟 That’s how old I am now! Birthdays can hit in all kinds of way (often mine makes me surly!) but yesterday was, mostly, really really lovely. And I got to spend most of the day making new music in the studio! And ended the day curled in bed with people I really like. Das geht! ❤️

2. Vacation High Lingers🌟 It’s pretty cold here, and mostly gray, but I still have all this humid southern warmth and sunlight in my body from last week’s adventure with Mill. I keep whispering at her ‘I’m so glad we did that’❤️

3. Big Magic Art Fun 🌟 Every morning, I take a picture of the sky or some such thing on my run. Recently, Austin MacRae saw one of my photos and PAINTED IT!!! AHHHHH!!! LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL HE MADE IT! ❤️

4. Merry, little, light oops 🌟 I picked up my holiday ep this week! YAY!!! They look perfect! It sounds just like I dreamed! Except I listened and realized that I sent in the wrong song order in a big way. OY! So I need to get them all reprinted 🙃. I had a couple places where I really fell down this week - like on my Tuesday run, I actually FELL FLAT on my face. But THIS one - biggest oops! What’s good is - the people at Copycats Media are awesome, we’re lucky to live in a town with a cool CD maker-place, and it should be fixed in time to have it where it needs to be. And also, I’m noting that my perfectionist tendencies have been…a little quieter this week? Maybe? Over here, that’s a good! ❤️

❤️ Alright! There was voting, and clocks were set back, and the weather took a turn - and tell me tell me! What is good for you!? ❤️
Check out what Copycats Media has 👀

TEST PRESSES ARE IN! Copycats Media totally coming through on schedule 🔥🙌🏼🔥. Thanks to everyone who has preordered a copy thus far! Head over to our Bandcamp to snag one, and FYI another Bandcamp Friday is this week on Nov 4!
After many delays, the new Wadge full-length is finally ready to send to the plant. Per usual, Copycats Media will be manufacturing them. “Grindcore Penitentiary” is a 24 track concept album about, uh…, a grindcore penitentiary, featuring cover art from Skitzo James, several guest appearances and a 24 page booklet with drawings/lyrics done by Mr. Pfeiffer himself. Look for it in November, 2022. Until then, buy the other Wadge releases I have for sale. There’s only a few of each remaining.
Yooooo these 😍

As always, manufactured by the best Copycats Media
We’re incredibly thankful for all of you who have listened to our new jams and especially for those who have preordered the upcoming 2xLP. Snag your copy over at Bandcamp!

Studio video drop next week. 🐕🚀🔥

Vinyl is back! Who would have thought? Yesterday I posted how we were going to air a story on Copycats Media decision to build out a vinyl album pressing plant in Osseo, the first in Minnesota. Their primary goal is to serve independent music artists by producing vinyl recordings that these artists can sell at their concerts.

The folks at Copycats were simply amazing. Photographer Eli Gardiner and I are deeply grateful to Justin, Greg, and Bruce for giving us the grand tour of the factory where they hope to press 10,000 records a day by the end of next fall.

And by the way, you need to know that in addition to being an exceptional photographer and editor, Eli Gardiner is an independent singer-songwriter himself. Check out his FB page for a concert schedule. We're all proud to have him as a colleague.

Here's our story on Copycats...
