These pictures were made over a seven week period between early May and late July while on tour with Jacuzzi Boys. You can call it a tour diary, I’ll call it the opposite of glow in the dark.

Huntsville, Alabama. I couldn’t decide which I liked better, the cactus or the car? I still can’t decide.
Memphis, Tennessee. Christian Patterson has a much better picture of those beautiful lights you see reflected in the mirror. I decided I’d try to make my own picture without totally ripping him off. It was worth a try I guess.
Birmingham, Alabama. Our friend Charlie took us and the Thomas Function guys into this cave. Needless to say, we were extremely unprepared. It was my first time ever in a cave and I honestly thought we were in too deep. The writing was on the wall all along.
Birmingham, Alabama. This is Gabriel with a hand full of wild berries. They were delicious.
Austin, Texas. This is over at Andy Bone’s place. As I tried sleeping that night I was bit by a spider on my elbow. My elbow got fat and watery. We ducked out in the middle of the night.
Dallas, Texas. A wall I stopped to look at.
Holbrook / Navajo, Arizona. This is in the gift shop as you exit Petrified Forest National Park. I wasn’t in the best of moods that day and the little bit of water damage on this mural made sense to me.
Tempe, Arizona. This was the door to the bathroom at a bar we ended up at after our show that night. It reminded me of Miami.
Gila Bend, Arizona. I’m sure there are countless pictures of this signage. Apparently, it’s a popular roadside attraction but I had never seen or heard of this place. We stopped in and I bought a shirt with planets on it.
Los Angeles, California. Bela Lugosi barely made it on to the sidewalk.
San Francisco, California. This is at Tim from The Fresh and Onlys place. I slept on a couch in the kitchen, and this is the first thing I saw when I woke up. Manute Bol died a few days later.
Sacramanto, California. Just a nice weed plant, that’s all.
Portland, Oregon. It took me three trips to Portland to finally make it to the Voodoo Doughnut shop. They were delicious, but I was much more interested in this portrait of Isaac Hayes.
Seattle, Washington. This served as a reminder of the kind of work that awaited me back home.
Seattle, Washington. This is the punch pad outside of Kurt Cobain’s house. I wasn’t quite sure how to feel while standing there, but I’m glad I was there to think about it.
Seattle, Washington. This is at Cairo. I think they used that image on a flyer. I don’t blame them.
Seattle, Washington. How elegant can a dog get? It’s also about America.
Missoula, Montana. These remind me of paintings made on the streets of Coconut Grove in the early ’90′s.
St. Paul, Minnesota. We drove around looking for a specific Vietnamese restaurant. We didn’t find it, but I found this.
Fort Wayne, Indiana. This was in the bathroom of the house we slept at. I wonder if it still works.
Fort Wayne, Indiana. Cody is quite possibly one of the funniest people I’ve ever met.
New Haven, Connecticut. Batman and Robin and a broken frame.
New Haven, Connecticut. Refrigerator magnets are fun.
Brooklyn, New York. This is my good friend Eric. We were having the time of our lives as we died over breakfast.
Washington, D.C. We couldn’t get our kicks, so we opted for Pizza Citi.
Asheville, North Carolina. As The Flying Burrito Brothers played, I wanted to jump into this poster.
Atlanta, Georgia. At Megan’s place. Diego’s hand interrupting a perfectly good view of the world.
Nashville, Tennessee. At Glenn Danzig’s house. Well, not quite, but yes.
En Route to Oxford, Mississippi. This was at a Chevron gas station. It was nowhere near the door.
Miami, Florida. My cat was waiting for me.
