euro tour update

we are in faenza, italia right now.
we just had yummy cappuccini and they are preparing food for us right now.

italia has the best food ever, no question, so we are excited.

tour so far has been very good.
our favorite shows were in poland.
people are super enthusiastic about music there.

last night we played in salzburg, austria and it is one of the most beautiful cities i have ever seen.

before the show we had Glühwein.
it is usually prepared from red wine, heated and spiced with cinnamon sticks, vanilla pods, cloves, citrus and sugar.
here's a crummy picture from my iphone of the Glühwein stand.

while we were here helicopters were flying around above us because tom cruise and cameron diaz are filming a movie in salzburg.

our hotel was right by this castle:

also, i am sick :(

mountains of austria

we drove through big mountains today.

ahoj from ostrava, cz



hallo from europe

hallo buddies.
just wanted to let you know that we made it to europe and we are OKAY! (sort of)

last night at our first show in Berlin, Devin plugged our stuff in and it exploded.
not really, but it didn't work and lots of smelly smoke filled the suitcase.
we borrowed some european 9V adapters and used those instead of our converter.
we couldn't use our mixer or delay pedal cause they blew up.
but we got new ones and our very own adapters so we are set.

that was scary...

i can't post any pictures because the places we have been so far don't have wifi.
right now i am typing on a computer that looks as though it was hit by a bomb when it was made in 1992.

we are in wroclaw, poland right now. it's pretty neat/scary and people don't speak much english.
we had some sort of traditional meal tonight prepared by the venue and it was... not like anything we had ever eaten before.

last night i rode a motorcycle (that wasn't real) and the dj played all american songs after our set (think: beach boys, born in the usa, kids in america... etc). are those 2 things worth going broke in europe?



skeleton in the saddam closet

if you follow us on twitter or look at our tumblr... you may have seen our post about finding saddam in an ironing board cupboard at an apartment we were looking at.
he looked something like this:
notice dumbass scrawled backwards across his forhead and the "support your local poet" bumper sticker above him.
ugh! it couldn't get more dreadful could it?
well, we ended up getting the apartment.
nooooo, we didn't get it because of the saddam....
we did.
anyway... we found another surprise in the cupboard upon further examination.
yeah, that's a skeleton bound with twine and fake rose petals, face down nonetheless.
check it out:
and it has a neat drawing on it's forehead!
not sure what this is all about, but i put him back where i found him.
i really don't know what else to say. scary.
