Basically, we'll be "off" and "on" for the next little while putting together all the pieces that will be in your very hands before you know it. It's been, what, 3 years since we put out an album? Life at home, alone with my thoughts is cool and all but it feels like my brain is swelling up inside my head. I think I need to do something besides cooking healthy meals and fixing up Martha Stewart paper-craft decor for each holiday season.
