TheOtherAss celebrates the humorous world of working musicians, and their everyday exploits. 

The material is derived from years (and years) of gigging, recording, rehearsing - and yes, they are my own experiences. I grew up in Maine, When in 1996 I started my first punk rock band, the Junkbuckets.
We were horrible - very very horrible. 

Later I found myself gigging all over the Boston areas, where honestly most of my material comes from-
I’m now happily living near Seattle, still playing Punk-Rock, and using my media degree to create comics, animations, shirts, and plenty of showposters.These comics are my favorite way to share the many stories I have built up over the last thirty years.

It was the band contest in my HS and our dumbass principal couldn't believe that the drums had to be tuned, he thought the two drummers doing it were just "making noise". Thankfully we had a marvelous musical director that always stood for us.

It's better than getting the drum set and when training always being told to stop being it's too loud. My drum set was basically for decoration and 4 years later when I got rid of them because my family would never let me train, everyone was shocked that "I threw away a Christmas present"!

Yes, indeed, it can happen, but not during the recording, if the engineer is a pro...

A very clever ideea! It's not a secret, many new albums are mixed to sound good on cell phones / earbuds, not on big and expensive stereo HiFi systems.

Drummers are more important than you think! If I fail a guitar solo during a gig, very few in the audience will notice; if the drummer fails, all the band fails!

A guitarist can do this with the LP bridge or the Strat whammy bar.

Our guitarist had a twenty year old little mutt named Sam. Sam was adorable but deaf as a post. His favorite thing was to lay in the kick drum during practice and let the pounding vibrations lull him to sleep.

It would be so cool to have a sticker or two on my car, but ... yeah ... bags of drums on the back seat become much more obvious when advertised.

Spanish lady come to me, she lays on me this rose It rainbow spirals round and round, it trembles and explodes It left a smoking crater of my mind I like to blow away But the heat came round and busted me for smiling on a cloudy day Coming, coming, coming around Coming around, coming around, in a circle

The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older, Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
