Since my last post..
Camille has turned two.
We bought a house and moved.
I have done a lot of running (training for a half marathon).
I have played lots of music with Camille in the new basement.
We both play drums and sing, sometimes she plays experimental guitar while I drum.
I have not written any new songs or created any new artwork or begun making any new things. I’m completely fine with this because I’ve been making everyday count as much as possible.
Elsa and I played a short set last Friday afternoon at WSUM. It was pretty bittersweet. We hadn’t played at all since last fall and this will likely be the last time we play together until she and Wes return from their epic adventure. Until then the likely hood of el-tin fun playing any shows is slim to none.
Instead I plan to:
begin making things again
write tons of new songs
do some artwork
finally release a new animal or vegetable album
run (a lot)
buy a house
try to make everyday count.
Sticking With the Ocean
Pumped for a new album from Chad. Even more pumped that there’s a version of Weighted Sin on it.
En route to band practice.
el-tin fun is set to appear on WSUM Friday, March 7th at 4pm.
Tune in on yr FM dial at 91.7 or online at wsum.org.

Here’s a 2013 mix that is going in Mille’s big book of mixes.
Today is Camille’s first day of school. All I can do is think that life would be so boring without her here.
This would have been announced a couple of days ago, but I got struck down with a wicked bout of fevers and headaches that lasted for about forty eight hours. All is well now as I’m on the road to recovery.
