one of my favorite things ever is when folks make things for each other, and i just recieved a piece of birthday music from good pals Ben Miranda and Drew Durepos yesterday. it’s awesome! thanks you two guys!

2. a piece i wrote for my pal benjamin brooks a few years ago:
3. my 30th birthday recording, which i heard from the backseat of a car, blindfolded. this was made by a whole bunch of loved ones including steve niketopoulos, ben miranda, nadia cone, jim cooper, james mitchell, my dad, andrew sole, rick franklin, ryan jedlika, elaine friedberg, and “ola.”
4. a piece of mark messing’s that i arranged for his birthday this year:
