@mattbomarr has a really rad blog that interviews visual artists (Eric Yahnker! Blek le Rat! Next week - Lucien Shapiro!) about what they fill their minds w/ when making the art. In addition to the ?s, he asks each artist to create a playlist that supports their answers, actually or abstractly. It’s a neat idea for an ongoing blog & I really recommend you take a look because it is a collection crafted by a palpable enthusiam for the Artistic Spirit.

And so this week the #bomarrblog features an interview (+ playlist) w/ #steakmtn that unsurprisingly features self-aware/pretentious (or puckish? No, you’re right, the first combo) answers to sincerely interested questions concerning my personal connection with music & what I may listen to when being, for lack of a better term, creative or “creative” (so as to be inline with my whole “attitude” “problem”).

Visit the link above, read another (<— in italics) Steak interview from the Pre-Positive Era and if you dare, listen to 45 some odd minutes of what could be perceived as me fucking with you or how I see it : a new piece of art.

The pre-orders for @fencesmusic forthcoming full length, #lesseroceans, are alive @ the address above (and way down below). If you act fast & now and like what you see, you may be able to snatch one of the inticing bundles that arrives at your home with a limited edition, #steakmtn designed, four color, 18” x 24” silk-screened poster of Mansfield after a failed attempt to strike God from the sky.

Try as one might, you can’t kill a fictional character for real.

Well if you are interested in the music side of Geoff Garlock. We got you covered. Two official Garlock releases are up for pre-order today!!! And I couldn’t be more excited

First off we have the official vinyl version of Orchid “Totality”. If you have never heard why we are referenced in one sentence in a lot of articles about terrible “screamo” bands that exist right now as an “influence” on their “basically terrible hair metal band syndrome but worse” “music”. Then check out “Totality”. This is a collection of all of the early Orchid releases including the split seven inch with Red Scare and the split skull shaped split aka the Skramz holy grail, with Jeromes Dream. And then a bunch of songs I didn’t record but played a billion times live.

Then we have the Ritual Mess lp. What do you have in store there? How about “Gravity style hardcore, served up with chaos, hooks, and fervor that brings new life to this style. Some might call it “the closest thing you’ll get to an Orchid reunion” and while they might be right, it’s also much more than that. Listen and find out for yourself. For fans of Antioch Arrow, Swing Kids, Clikatat Ikatowi, etc.”. That sounds about right. Also this is the first official music release I have released since Panthers “The Trick” in 2007 (there is also still The Year Is One record on Bandcamp and maybe Dark Vibe will come out someday). SOOOO I am pretty excited about this one.

And if you are feeling nasty, do a bundle order of both and you get a limited vinyl color that is only in the bundle.

If you are a weird child who only likes MP3’s and are not a weird grandpa who only likes vinyl,get the digital records!

And while you are at it, relive your youth for the last time or live your youth for the first time by grabbing an official Orchid shirt with the classic design

Music is the best isn’t it? Support my belief in that. And I truly hope you all enjoy!

Be a part of the #youtube diegesis with me, #steakmtn, and my #rockandroll bosses : @fencesmusic x @macklemore x @ryanlewis as we ellciit a rainbow’d fountain of emotions from #millennials and beyond! The above is just a small sample of the wonderful cultural repartee happening over at

Come feeling empty, leave feeling full.

The first question I am going to pose to you right now, in all serious, is : are you tired of me yet?

And the second question I have is : has anyone noticed that I give more interviews about Steak Mtn. than actually doing Steak Mtn.?

Regardless, there is a new one interview up and it’s audio and you will have to hear me be mean about many things you’ve only read me be mean about. @mynameisjonah and the boyishly handsome - Steven Smith, have a really rad, insightful, enthusiastic podcast called GOING OFF TRACK that interviews creatives from across the pop culture spectrum (but skews towards music - especially the counter culture-ish kind - and comedy and I do recommend a look around their archive as it is filled with cool interviews, especially the Blake from #jawbreaker one and the one with @blackanvil) that I recorded a segment for an “internet decade” (6 months) ago and again, is now and up and out.

So, if you want to hear my witch-pitched chicken voice talk about #carcass, #jerrylewis and other (zzzzzzzz) Steak-based half-baked, unfounded and awkwardly hateful things, including but not limited to (spoiler alert) a trollish comment about #thegaslightanthem - then go here -
or the site address in general - or iTunes and search for their podcast in the box that you search for things like podcasts in.
