Jameson and I have both have been making some money modeling for painters. Not nude, Moms, don't have a heart attack. Last Friday, a well known artist in Richmond put the pieces he painted of us in his Gallery opening.

and this is a drawing an artist, in a class I modeled for, did of me with my accordion. Pretty trippy, huh?

I liked it so much, he let me keep it.


In the Studio

We finally recorded the music written while living in South America for the past year and so of our lives.
We spent two days at Minimum Wadge Recording Studio in Oregon Hill.
The final 20 some odd minute journey of an album ended up better than any of us anticipated and we hope to be fine tuning and mastering it in the weeks to come.

Jameson's Art Instalation

Jameson and I both worked on this piece all week to get it ready for the First Friday when all the Galleries in Richmond open their new exhibits to the public.
It was exhausting hauling all the massive televisions and the over-sized wooden table up the 200 year old flight of gallery stairs, but we made it work.
And the product was a very drawing interactive sculpture. Jameson meant it to be a commentary on war and the influence of media, religion, and industry on politics.
The three of us sat there all night playing cards, letting the cards roll off the table and on to a mess on the floor.


Adventures in American Diners: Jean's Country Diner

Providence Forge, VA

Sandwiched between two gas stations, Jean's Country Diner shows you what the Virginia country side really cares about: America and Buttermilk Biscuits, and God bless um for it.

We felt a bit out of place when we first walked in, seeing as I was the only male with out a camo or flag bandana, while Laney was the only Female without frizzy, maybe dyed blonde hair. But this is what American Diners are all about. The culture, the environment and the food. A diner in the city is different from a diner in the country is different from a diner on the waterfront. That is what this series plans to explore, and so we started with Jean's.

Decorated with old Christmas lights that are unlit and televising a church service in the corner, Jean's has character. You walk up to small window next to the kitchen to place your order from a paper menu tacked to a cork board. The menu is standard breakfast and lunch items, eggs, pancakes, hamburgers and BLT's, all at a budget price.

We had a silver dollar plate, 2 eggs w/ grits and a biscuit, an egg, cheese and tomato biscuit sandwich w/ a side hashbrowns, coffee and tea for about $10. Though the portions weren't sizable it was a good value for sure.

We ate our food off of the served paper plates, with the provided plastic utensils.
It was good, all very satisfying, except the hashbrowns, they were dry and sort of "blah". The biscuits though, in contrast, were great.
Jean's Country Diner was a perfect first selection to this continuing series.
