about

A spoken word album written and recorded between 2007 and 2012.

credits

released January 1, 2012

The album art for "Cowering Inferno" was designed using the photo of a drunk asleep in the hall of my apartment building overlooking some REALLY ROUGH bars. Nobody who lived there ever called the cops until one day the young man on the other side of my wall opened his arms with a shaving razor. My apartment had an awful Murphy bed. My other neighbor flushed his stash and tried to sell me some speakers. When I declined he gave them to me alongside a stolen PS2 with no cords. I never used it and passed it on to a girl downstairs who sometimes slept on her porch. The next three months were a blur. Afterwards I moved out and lived out of my car for a while. It was easier and there was less blood.
