TIMC Paranoia Level as of Wednesday January 2nd 2013:| Low | Guarded | (((Depends))) | Elevated | High | Severe |
As of January 2013... none really... I'm on a bit of a hiatus. I plan on playing or at least attending the monthly Noise Ordinance shows at the 8th Street Tap Room. They happen every last Wednesday of the month. Probably won't make it to INC this year. :( Poop. Much love to all my friendlies.
2012-02-21 UpdateStill need to get an album off to Sub Rosa. INC was a blast. Looking forward to possibly seeing Justice Yeldham later in the year, travelling to New York, gardening.

2012-01-17 UpdateWoah... haven't updated in almost four years. A lot has happened. Currently I am working out shows in Santiago Chile, Cordoba Argentina and Buenos Aires for February with a stint at International Noise Conference on the way back home.
Also working on putting together a version of Cut Loose + This Mission for an LP release on Sub Rosa records in Belgium.
Thinking about a new album called Noble Savage. Don't know if it will ever materialize.
Asia Tour 2008Japan shows are being booked. Most of the dates are with Ultra Jr.! Hong Kong, China, South Korea and Australia are all possible but not setup yet. Details are on the timc myspace.
