Loon Creek

Went backpacking and fishing on Loon Creek, in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

4 days of hiking and fishing and hiking and fishing. 

Just me and Josie.

Vancouver, BC

I was lucky to be able to attend the fantastic Design/Content Conference in Vancouver, BC. Extra lucky: Cathy came with me!

Beautiful city.

Scenic morning runs. 

Fantastic food and folk.

Weekend bike shelter kidfort construction

Who knew I had this in me?! Of course, I could not have done this without Uncle John's help.

But over the course of the weekend, we sunk 4x4 uprights into concrete and build the frame for an AWESOME bike rack and shelter kidfort combo structure.

My Random and Disjointed Guide to Treefort

Here's a bunch of stuff I just wanna throw out there--bands I want to see andthings I think would be good whether I'm going or not. 

Slang, at the RadioBoise stage on Friday night. Janet Weiss from Sleater-Kinney's latest project. I love her.
Thundercat! I dont know what to expect but I hear his shows are amazing. Check him out on Spotify. 
Thee Oh Sees. Hard stuff. I've never seen them. Promises to be scorching. 
Nosaj Thing. Great dj producer guy who I think has a couple sets. 
208 Ensemble is a local chamber group I saw at Cinder and they were great. Kids. Cool stuff. 
Hinds! Huge buzz about these 4 girls from Barcelona playing surfy garage rock. 
Aesop Rock w/ Rob Sonic. I don’t see a lot of hip hop or rap live, but I’m a fan of Aesop Rock.
White Denim, explosive and disjointed Austin indie.
Magic Sword, if you haven’t seen them. If you have, then, meh.
Wolvserpent, lovely darkness
The Mynabirds, Bay Area gentle indie.
Quilt, indie pickers with an edge.
La Luz, more surfy garage-y rock, always a good show.
Christopher Willits, ambient gorgeous soundscapes.
Thunderpussy, just because.
Marshall Poole, great local rock.
Bed. Could be pleasing if you like Telekenisis.
Summer Cannibals, same as above but a bit wilder.
Animal Eyes, fun if you are into Animal Collective.
Play Date! Bring the kids to the Radio Boise stage for these guys. Fun stuff.
Ana Lete, local, the little I've heard seems promising.
Idyltime, great local country sounds.
Cerberus Rex, heavy heavy local metal. 
Strange Wilds, Sub Pop band reminiscent of early Nirvana. 
Music Band, great name, rock. 
Frankie and the Witch Fingers, same as above, maybe better on both counts. 
DZ Deathrays, more rock!
Acid Mothers Temple, insane Japanese psych noise. 
Mascaras, surf psyche jams.
Sun Blood Stories, awesome local psychedelic. 
Conan. Metal. 
Unconditional Arms, shoegazey rock. 

See you out there!

Future Scientists of Idaho

We took Theo to the Engineering and Science Festival at BSU this weekend. He loved it. Robots, rockets, static electricity, and a whole bunch of enthusiastic college and high school kids. 

His rocket was fantastic. And we spent lots of time moving robots around. What a great event.
