Anonymous asked: Could you see yourself living anywhere other than LA?

Ohhhhhh god yes. I think LA is a miserable place, but since I haven’t been home longer than a span of 4 continuous months in the past 5 years, it’s just kinda become home by default since it’s where my bandmates live. It’s too fast paced, you have to sit in two hours of traffic to get anywhere, things are too spread out to reasonably use public transit, and there are lots of terrible attitudes. I try to “rediscover” and make the best of it everytime I come home but I find myself discouraged by this stuff.

I don’t know why, but I think I’ll end up in the south at some point. Savanna, Georgia seems nice! Maybe North Carolina? Warm weather and beaches with a slower pace and natural beauty, that’s my thaaang

Anonymous asked: You were so great tonight at Ottobar, during tigers jaw and your set. Have you been playing drums for them the whole tour? That has to be tiring!

Thank you! Yep! I’ve been eating 4 big meals a day and requiring at least 8 full hours of ZZZzzzz to pull off the month of back to back 2 hours of drums a night sets, but it’s getting easier every week and I have so much fun getting to play polar opposite tunes every night.
