This was a fun album to make, even though it is very amateur sounding eleven years later. I would get up early on the weekends, make a pot of coffee and make music until Lauren got up. Then, we'd go to the beach, eat Mexican food, watch movies, and drink wine. It was all very inspiring for me. I was reconnecting with sound.

Recorded & mixed in Encinitas, CA by Monte Cimino between July & August of 2005.
"The Last Time I Saw You Alive" is dedicated to the memory of Jason Porter.
Thanks: Dave Jonas, Josh Martin, Adam Cimino, & Lauren McArdle for her support & guidance while I made this music.
"Life is a journey; it is only one journey; there is along it only one road, one dark wood, one hill, one river to cross, one city to come to; one dawn, one evening. Each is only encountered again and again, apprehended, understood, recounted, lost, and found again."
