second, the vcVlog has been lacking and i’m really sorry about this. i’ve still been doing the vlogs and filming everything in life but i just haven’t uploaded them to youtube. this will change either later this week or early next week! i will upload all the past vlogs as well as a bunch of bonus footage & a vlog apology for my lack of attentiveness.

i will be doing the vcVlog on the tour as well! yes! we’ll see how that goes. hopefully i’ll be able to upload & edit them while on the road. but there is definitely going to be a ton of footage from the tour!

i know there’s other things going on.. hmmm.. oh! i think i’m going to add an actually textual “blog” section to here and that will be like a tour blog where i’ll probably mostly write rambles from the road.

the plan for 2013 was to record & release 3 full length velvet crayon albums but this plan has been changed due to the massive amount of shows i’ve been playing this year as well as the upcoming tour with the Squids. BUT i will release some new velvet crayon music this year. i am currently recording a cd that i will release on the tour (a velvet crayon tour sampler cd thing) which will be available on the tour as well as on bandcamp. i am also thinking about releasing an ep that has demo’s & live ukulele songs that i’ve done throughout Carnivolution 2013.

then in december & january i will get back to recording the 3 full length velvet crayon albums to be released in early 2014! i have a lot of songs waiting to be recorded.

i think that’s everything for now. sound good? awesome. let’s talk soon. and check out the facebook event for the tour as well as the velvet crayon show’s page for other upcoming shows!
