wow there is so much happening right now. for starters, i am drinking V8 and it is delicious.
i am nearing the end of my spring break, which has not been much of a break since so much has happened and i did not go to the beach
people die and people are born.
if real life is going to happen, i guess it should happen while i’m on a break from school.
the stars keep spinning

last night we played a show in indianapolis and drove home. the bars close at 3am (we usually have to wait until the end of the night to get paid), so i didn’t get here until 5 or 6 this morning. so today is the first day in a long while that i woke up and didn’t have anything on the agenda. instead, i am drinking vegetable juice, working on websites and july for kings stuff, and later i will make sushi with a girl. that is the best way to make it.

we have finished a few mixes for the new album and they sound amazing. john mcguire, our new guitarist has taken the reins with mixing. he is incredibly talented and you will agree when you hear the record. we are starting to put together a creative plan for how and when we want to release this.

meanwhile
i found a contest i would like to win: nameyourdreamassignment.com/the-ideas/joehedges/

the people at lenovo and microsoft have more money than they know what to do with, so they are offering $50,000 to someone to photograph his or her dream photo assignment. they’re also giving away a couple Lenovo thinkpads, which i also would not mind winning. 🙂 i have two ideas open for voting: july for kings cross country tour and my sister amy and i rafting the ohio river. both things that i have wanted to do (and shoot) for a while. the entries advance in a chart based on votes, and on april 3th, public voting closes and a panel of judges will decide who of the top 20 entries win the prizes. now, there is no guarantee that i will win if i get either of my ideas in the top 20. but it sure is worth a shot! here’s dan and i talking about it:

anyway i would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few seconds to register and vote for both my ideas at nameyourdreamassignment.com/the-ideas/joehedges/. please? thanks so much guys!
