Supremely bummed that Just Die! called it quits. Matt and I both played in that band, though him longer than I. Despite being criminally under appreciated, they managed to last longer than most hardcore bands and accomplish more than most, and helped shape many young punks and hardcore kids in Asheville and elsewhere (including me). So many bands have come and gone in Asheville’s punk/hardcore scene, but it won’t be the same without Just Die!. 

This is my dedication to the band I both played bass in for a time and sang along to as a fan. Tattoo by Mile Rennie (Absolute Art, Richmond, VA).

“Classroom Poem” by Steve Shell. This is incredible. I feel like I’m the kid he could have been talking to, though I never was lucky enough to have a teacher like him.

Will always reblog.

Steve Shell is the best man ever. He’s a grumpy shit, but he’s the best man ever. Proud to call him a friend.

Boone, NC house show last night was off the hook. We played with 3 fantastic bands, friends old and new. Met tons of friendly, cool people. John Ribes, you are a magician. Thank you for putting this whole thing together and for letting our big group of Asheville weirdos invade your basement for an evening. Also, Pale Fire fucking rules.
We can’t wait to come back. <3
PS. Go stream the new Title Fight album, “Floral Green” on Spin.com. It’s fucking incredible.
