Here is a new song off our record. It’s called “Doctor”
“A long time ago, when you were a wee thing, you learned something, some way to cope, something that, if you did it, would help you survive. It wasn’t the healthiest thing, it wasn’t gonna get you free, but it was gonna keep you alive. You learned it, at five or six, and it worked, it *did* help you survive. You carried it with you all your life, used it whenever you needed it. It got you out—out of your assbackwards town, away from an abuser, out of range of your mother’s un-love. Or whatever. It worked for you. You’re still here now partly because of this thing that you learned. The thing is, though, at some point you stopped needing it. At some point, you got far enough away, surrounded yourself with people who love you. You survived. And because you survived, you now had a shot at more than just staying alive. You had a shot now at getting free. But that thing that you learned when you were five was not then and is not now designed to help you be free. It is designed only to help you survive. And, in fact, it keeps you from being free. You need to figure out what this thing is and work your ass off to un-learn it. Because the things we learn to do to survive at all costs are not the things that will help us get FREE. Getting free is a whole different journey altogether.”
Please help our friends in GREEN DREAMS cover the cost of equipment and personal items stolen in a van theft.
Hey everybody, I’ve set up an IndieGoGo account to raise money to help our best friends in GREEN DREAMS get some of their stuff back from the break-in this morning. They’re missing thousands of dollars in electronics, musical equipment and sentimental personal possessions. If everybody who is friends with me and friends with my shitty band on this website donated a dollar, we’d already have double what I’m asking for above.
If you’ve seen any of the shows on this tour, you know how good GREEN DREAMS is and how kind and wonderful they are as people. Nobody deserves to have this happen to them and I am completely crushed seeing one of my closest friends crying over the fact that she lost things that no amount of money could get back, like all the notebooks she’s used to track her teacher training, sentimental jewelry, and everything in her bag and wallet.
I’ve set it up so people who donate a certain amount can get copies of our records, which is pretty much all we can offer while we’re on tour. I’m offering up my personal copy of our special edition ‘blood record,’ too.
Please consider helping out a super rad, beautiful brilliant group of people who are caught in a horrific, shitty situation.
Signal-boost if you can, I really really want to help my friends. This is a terrible fucking day.
I will never understand this level of cruelty. Please go here to help some of my friends out. If everybody was as unfailingly kind as they’ve been to me, things like this would never happen. Please read, donate (literally whatever you can would be met with a massive amount of appreciation), and share. Any and all help in this matter is appreciated.
This is the kind of thing worth breaking “no reblog” policies for. Extending this to however many I possibly can. You wouldn’t just be helping great bands by contributing to this; you’d be helping great people. Please help them out however you can- they’d appreciate and so would I.
I’ve had to amend the original post because apparently I don’t have access to the copies of the blood vinyl. Life sucks, let’s not get into it. I’ve decided instead to give away my one personal copy to whoever donates the most, it’s literally all I can do until I figure out more stuff to give away.
In any case, the campaign still stands. Help GREEN DREAMS, they deserve it.
