kate giffin— who i met (online) through the keyboardist from deer tick while i was hanging out with him in providence, rhode island in september 2013— came to visit me in november. we had been pen pals in all that time but had never met in person. well! there we are at missouri lounge a whole half hour after she flew 12 hours from canada to california.

i really did say that about ‘spinning away’ during the drive to muir beach, by the way. kate threatened to put on the sugar ray cover and i had a momentary crisis. give me a fuckin break, sugar ray. just freaking stay away from that song, why don’t you. too late now i guess!

thanks for introducing me to a new nightmare, kate giffin!!
