I went to Maryland Death Fest again, and had a blast! Highlights include:
- Primitive Man
- Infernal Stronghold
- Seeing a ton of old friends
- Neurosis, even though I didn’t stay for the whole thing.
I didn’t take a lot of pictures but here are a few:

I spent the better part of my teenage years on Tate Street at Hot Tamales and Galaxy, playing pool, and eating tacos with with fellow punks, skins, goths, skateboarders, and musicians. Though this mini documentary stops when I started going there, I fondly remember many of the bands, venues, restaurants, and people.
Last weekend I took a 3-day electric guitar building workshop at the Nazareth Guitar Institute. I learned a lot about fretwork and setting up a guitar, stuff I didn’t know before. Also, I need to get a lot of very specialized tools if I want to work on my own guitars. I guess Stew-Mac should expect an order soon.
The guitar sounds great, I wasn’t expecting such a quality build. The neck seems to be settled in mostly. I’ll give it a final set-up soon. I want to finish it a nice butterscotch blonde, with an amber neck – just like a classic vintage Tele.
Here are some more pictures:
