It’s Craft Lake City this weekend. If you’re in SLC, come by the Gallivan Center Friday from 5-10 and Saturday noon-10. Stop by and pick up an awesome novel my friend Mike wrote, a zine, a shirt and some pins.

And bring me (vegan) treats, water and iced coffee. Food too, I guess. The above three are far more important.


A couple of times at the end of years past, I’d round up a few people and film them telling me what their Top 5 Anythings from the previous year were. It was fun to do, but I didn’t think anyone else actually cared, so I stopped doing it.

Around June last year, I had a few people ask where the Top 5 of 2011 were and got a little disappointed when I told them I hadn’t done it. I got yelled at a few times, so I’m bringing it back.

If you want in, let me know. I want to get a good mix of people, since the previous years have been all dudes.

Check out the videos, and if you want in, let’s party.


Hi. If you missed it, I updated the Old News Records store.

Tulip is a novel written by Mike Farfel that I published through Old News Records. Yeah, I started a record label and turned it into a publishing house. I can do that. It’s my thing.

I also got a new batch of the Long Live Sloan shirts printed, just in time for basketball season. Tell your friends.

Next week, I’ll show you the shirt that Tumblr girls will love. You’ll be impressed, I promise.

…According to the article, “it would include a 300-foot-tall Ferris wheel, voice-operated mag-lev cars, a ‘planetary control room’ staffed by robots, and a heated dome almost twice as tall as the Empire State Building.”

Sounds amazing, right? Unfortunately, the reason that the CIA was able to use the script and concept drawings for ARGO to bolster their fake production for the rescue of American hostages was because the men behind the original film/theme park were complete crooks.

Did you guys know that I’ve been updating pretty consistently? I have. You should go there and see.

Here’s a video of my parents dog, Hank, and I playing in the snow just because. Maybe it’s a little reward for going to my site. How about that?

Welcome to the Old News Records blog.

Here’s where I’ll keep you updated on all the things ONR.

I’m in the process of repositioning the label into something bigger and better than what it used to be. I’ve given up on putting out CD’s because everything is going digital and it became harder and harder to convince people to buy a CD of a band they’ve most likely never heard or even heard of.

I still have all the albums I released and if you want one, feel free to peruse the store and get one, but that’s it. When they’re gone, they’re gone forever.

I’m moving ONR in a new direction and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ll keep you up to date as things get closer to being finished and I feel comfortable sharing what I’m doing.

But until then, you can find me all over the place. I’ll be dropping hints, info, images and all sorts of stuff throughout the summer.

Thanks for reading (and listening) and we’ll talk soon.
