OMG Hippie Cream and I'm way busy!

by Erik, 3508 days ago

Wow – I have scheduled myself approximately 3 minutes to write something.
1 min. gone just logging in!

Did you know that I play in a band called Hippie Cream too – and we’re pretty awesome?>?>?>

Super busy – although I actually slept last night and I feel pretty rad right now.

Hippie Cream just finished up our spring shows – wrapping up at the Scene in Glendale on wednesday.

Our spring had a couple of memorable shows – The airliner in Lincoln Heights was my favorite – its old and dirty – just like us. The Mayday / 40th Anniversary at Ellis Island Commune in Downtown LA was a good one too…

Peace and luv – Erik

boulder creek soul fuck

by Erik, 3522 days ago

I was thinking about Boulder Creek the other day. Mostly because I have few memories about it – even though I lived there for over 2 years. And they were formative years because I finished college at the time, and stayed on for another year or so. Other oxen media folks have lived there too, at one time or another. It seems that we all left there, dumber, more paranoid, and even dumber than we were when we moved in. What is it about that place.

This may have been the worst 2 years of my life. I was very confused about just about everything. I have tapes that I made that I thought were groundbreaking when I was making them – but it turns out that nobody else can stand to listen to them. I started making Soulfood and a Rocketship when I was in Boulder Creek – I made little to no progress even though I spent hundreds of hours on it.

So I don’t remember much – but I know that when I moved there I was a bright and twinkly-eyed young man. I left cynical – with the feeling that I had much to overcome if I was ever to claw my way back to how I was only a couple of years earlier. It turn out that I did – it took a lot of work and soul searching – and I am once again bright and twinkly-eyed.

Boulder Creek fucked me in the soul and i don’t know why. What did I ever do to Boulder Creek? I never plan on visiting that shit hole again. Planning a vacation? Don’t go to Boulder Creek… Unless of course you like getting fucked in the soul.
