Little Big Hand

littlebighandsaccording to legend, the little boy with the big hand lived near a nuclear power plant. when he was a baby, everyone pretended not to see his oversized right hand, but as he grew older he became self conscious & covered it with a bag. instead of hiding his abnormality, the bag made people suspect him of robbing convenience stores & shoplifting... ok, so i made that part up. awkward family photos posted this pic on their instagram page & i didn’t see why it made the cut until i read the caption “i had very large hands as a child.” for the record, there are WAY more awkward photos on the website.

Synchronized & Simonized

UFOwatchwe waited for the alignment of planets, then we synchronized our watches, and triangulated our positions for another MOTEL MANCINI gig. chris, clay, and i recently came across a couple of opportunities to play, so we’re joining forces again. look out kansas city!

Deleted Bonus

Every Single Mile

alloneswhen i glanced down at the truck’s odometer and saw that every digit was a 1, i had to pull over. it reminded me of the time i was riding around with phil hawthorn in his dad’s cadillac. we watched the numbers on the odometer right when they hit 91,000 miles. when the last zero rolled up, phil started singing the theme to the tonight show.
