squeezedPOSTERmany times a customer will ask me “what’s new?” i could go into great detail about family drama or personal medical issues, but most of the time i condense my reply for them. here is a condensation:
–warhol-esque fliers for motel mancini’s upcoming gig at homer’s
–new strings on my acoustic guitar
