For weeks we've been getting hints that a particular Asian country might attack the US. Then one night on the news we see a man in a parka standing next to a huge hole in the middle of a landscpae of ice. He's holding a microphone-- he's a reporter. He tells us that it's possible that the US has shot a nuclear missile into the Arctic Circle. As of now, there is no confirmation whether or not the US really did this or what the motive might be. There is, however, what appears to be a slow stream of lava coming from deep inside the hole.

Middle of a tour. Show at a hotel-resort in North Carolina. It's short, it's only 5:30 PM when both bands are finished. Not a big crowd. All my merch gets wet because it gets put inside some kind of bar on top of a bunch of ice that melts over the course of the show. I'm worried that the record jackets are going to stick together when they dry and rip when I try to pull them apart.

One of the other guys on the tour comes up and asks me what I think of driving straight to the coast after load-out and taking a 7-hour ferry ride to Atlanta. "You go out into the ocean and save a bunch of time that way." I like boat rides, so I tell him I'm into it. He tells me that we might do it, there are some other factors that need to align properly if it's to go down. I wonder what they are.
