Colder Now

We demoed all the songs for Feelings & How to Destroy them and we’ve been sort of internally referring to them as An Inside Joke With Myself. Most of them kind of suck, but I think this full band version of Colder Now is kind of cool, and since I wrote the thing, I’m not asking permission from the rest of the band to share it here, lol.


Everytime I have to go to church, I throw myself into Elder-Price-Mode. Always end up a little more in the McKinley area though…

Shit Tumblr History Nerds Say to Each Other

Below are quotes - actual quotes - from a Skype chat me and a bunch of tumblr history nerds are in. Yes, we use Skype. We’re losers. Also here’s a disclaimer: it’s a private conversation where messages are typically sent without passing through our brains first. Do not take anything seriously. Also, reading this might will cause cancer.

Off to a good start,

our first kiss
rewired my brain
and i’ve been pumping you
into my veins
ever since
it wasn’t enough
to breathe you in
i wanted to taste you
to feel you take control
of my body
so i’ve let you
you seep into the cracks
of my mind
until you are all
i can think about
i can’t stop smiling
i’m flying
and all is right
with the world
but darling
when you’re gone
i crash
my body craves you
so much
i forget to eat
forget to sleep
i wake up
in the middle of the night
thinking you are beside me
and my bones ache
when you’re not
it hurts so bad
i can’t move
and even though
i promised myself
i would never need you
i’m afraid i’m addicted
—  heroin

just when you think you’re a chill unpretentious person and you see a review saying, “The sheer ability of Cumberbatch] to not only remember all his lines (and he didn’t have an ear piece)…“ *horrified little theatre actor  gasp*

and i was doing so well

Blunt Mechanic - Our First Brains

“I saw the miracle but it was wasted on me
I couldn’t find inside myself to give validity
I never knew which way you turned or what you thought of me
So I peeled away, I peeled away

I looked into your eyes the color of your shirt
They match together like the water and the earth
I looked into your heart I hate to say it scared me so
I ran away, lately I stay, I made my way up north”

Hello! Back in May we were fortunate enough to work with our friend Mike Davis, who was way generous and kind and we recorded a live session at Ice Cream Party. Here’s some new songs that we’ve been hiding away. We’re heading down to California in about a week to record an LP and then touring back up. We’re now out of hiding and have a bunch of cool merch for people! Tomorrow we’re playing our kick off show! Thanks for listening and being patient with us we hope you like the new stuff!!!!!!


This is my band called Our First Brains. Being silly.
