For every song, a spectacle.

With less than 300 days to go before my quadranscentennial anniversary as a dude who puts out records kicks off, I’m doing a thing with Gucci to mark the silver jubilee.

Each week between now and the end of the year I’ll be pairing songs from my back catalog with eyewear hand selected from collections by Alessandro Michele for Gucci, to create a GG Playlist that will be released later this year.

Follow along on TikTok, as well as on my IG and FB stories over the coming months for more. The first posts and tracks went up today.

For every song, a spectacle. 💚❤️

14 years.

This month I am celebrating 14 years in longterm recovery from a 16 year addiction to cocaine and alcohol that nearly took my life many times.

I am really happy to be here. 🖤

For the first decade after I stopped trying to hurt myself, I had these incredible moments of shame and guilt and weird panic take me over constantly, just about having been this person for so long — and I still sometimes do.

Like…how did I ever think anything I did, wrote, sang, or said in the 90s and early 00s was ok? How could I have hurt myself so much and cared so little for other people?

I do my best to stay compassionate with myself, and so many of you have shown me the same over the years.

If you are someone I hurt, humiliated, or discarded somewhere along the way, I’m truly sorry. All I can really say is that hurting people hurt people, and I was hurting for many years.

Every single change I’ve made in my life has been made in the direction of my knowing I needed to do better, be better, and ultimately take responsibility for the entire experience of having been me this whole time — both as a very sick person, and now having been a very well person for many years.

I was talking to John from Portugal. The Man a few months ago about how so many things would never have happened if I had been successful in killing myself. One of the things I listed was that we would never have met. He very kindly let me know that we had met before I was well and that he just had never brought the experience up because clearly I did not remember and he knew I had been through a lot.

I have no recollection of this, and so many other experiences from that time; But I know that many of you retain these memories of me from before, and I am so grateful to John and every single one of you who have been willing to meet me again over the years, and have made space for me in your lives since.

Thank you to everyone who tried to keep me safe or showed me love during those early years — and thank you all for giving me the chance to be who I am now. It is your kindness that has carried me through.

RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE.

OH MY GOD

Found a copy of the Kill Rock Stars 30th Anniversary Comp the label sent out for Record Store Day and I’m not sure I will ever stop screaming when I see my name on these things alongside all the heroes of my youth. 🖤

10 albums in.

I released my 10th album this week and next year will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the 1st one. Wild stuff.

I can’t ever tell if I am the hero or the villain of this story, so I usually land on: I am both. People are assholes and I’m one of them. Unlike most of you though, my entire humiliating human journey is on record. Every dark thought I had as a teenager is literally downloadable on iTunes, a quarter of a century later. It’s horrifying and liberating all at once, and has always felt this way to me. I made bedfellows with overexposure early on in my career because I had to as a result of my writing, not because I understood what that would actually mean 25 years down the road.

I’ve been writing songs about what’s happening in my life at any given time since I was a child, and began recording and releasing those songs professionally when I was 17 — still very much a child. Life was all the way off the rails for me back then, and so is everything I did and wrote during that time.

My discography exists in two parts: 1998-2008 sounds like drugs and violence because everything around me was drugs and violence. 2009-now sounds like a person putting things back together after all the drugs and violence. I do my best to stay compassionate with myself about the lot of it, and I am ultimately glad it all exists — but it’s so incredibly hard to look at, in parts. I was a very sad, unwell person for many years, and that comes through loud and clear in all of those tracks from before.

My songs have never been about answers, and they still aren’t. Even now, as a happy, well person, I am all questions and nothing else. It has been this way for as long as I can remember. These albums are just a reflecting pool; kinda hard to make out, quite like the years.

Some of you have been with me this whole time, others have joined at points along the way, and many of you are just getting here now. However you found me and my songs, and however long you have been around, I hope you all know how much it means to me that you are here.

And for anyone about to dig into my back catalog: Apologies in advance. It was the 90s and I was freebasing cocaine.

Tonight I went to a barbecue in head-to-toe Gucci Epilogue by Alessandro Michele and ate veggie dogs on pretzel buns with rock legends whose posters used to hang on my wall as a teenager.

This is very relatable content!

When I was a baby gay growing up in the middle of the country I found a copy of the original Kill Rock Stars comp in the Alternative section of Camelot Music on a trip to the big city and it changed my ears forever.

I was 12 years old and hearing Bikini Kill, Kurt Cobain, Bratmobile, Courtney Love, Mecca Normal, (the) Melvins, Unwound, Heavens to Betsy, and all these other bands really opened my eyes to a bigger, louder, more accepting world than the one I had been born into. It saved me at the time.

Fast forward exactly 30 years and now I’m signed to Kill Rock Stars and have a song on the KRS comp alongside Deerhoof, Mary Lou Lord, Califone, Xiu Xiu, Against Me!, The Builders and the Butchers, Bitch, and so many other rad folks. Wild, dreamy stuff.

Get some for your ear holes in the store section of this site — and stay tuned for new tunes and videos coming your way here very soon.🖤

1995 hair and nose. Shout-out to the early 90s downtown Kansas City rave scene for everything else pictured here.

This dude was 16 and holding.💀

I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. 🖤

From USA TODAY:

The bar is low for the social media industry; Top platforms are unsafe for LGBTQ community, new report says.

According to GLAAD’s first Social Media Index report released Monday, the platforms have a ‘circuit breaker’ to slow down the harassment, bullying, and misinformation and discrimination, but they don’t want to do it because they are monetizing off of it, making the “entire sector effectively unsafe” for LGBTQ users and other marginalized communities.

Logan Lynn, an LGBTQ singer and musician, who has been harassed and bullied online, most notably for his provocative short film that accompanied his double album in 2019, believes GLAAD’s report is like an all-hands-on-deck call to arms that puts the platforms on notice.

“To have us all link arms and say ‘enough’ is long past due,” said Lynn, “I’m super moved that it’s going to happen.”

Spent the Weekend in the Vocal Booth…

Spent the weekend in the vocal booth (my guest bathroom shower stall during the ongoing lockdown) working on a cover of one of this sweet man’s songs for my new record.

Feels like 1997 up in here again, but with way better furniture.

WISH YOU WERE HERE. 🤍

Let’s Give These Losers The Closing Ceremony They Deserve.

I do not know what’s about to happen this week — in Portland, my home, and around the country — but I do know that I love you, and I have enough gay hope to go around.

So stand up, get mad, stay fancy, and let’s give these losers the closing ceremony they deserve.

🏳️‍🌈✊💋
