Ixodes scapularis

Sorry for not posting this week. I was in Berkeley for a couple days and blogger wasn't working when I got back.

Yesterday, I was exerting my masculinity by working on our cabin. I was out in the sun with my shirt off scraping paint off railings, lifting heavy things, and using power tools (too bad I missed NASCAR...) There are apple and pear trees behind the cabin, and it looks as though deer have gotten to them. I haven't be up early enough to catch a glimpse of them this summer, but deer are such gorgeous creatures. I'm not just talking about Bambi either.

There has been so much talk about this project called Deer Tick. Supposedly, their new album is going to be AMAZING, but I'm not their biggest fan. John McCauley is the man behind the music, and his voice isn't the greatest. Its slightly scratchy and it seems extremely forced. Despite this, I could listen to it for hours. Its strangely addicting even though I think that I could change it to a better song. Deer Tick is unabstrusive; McCauley gets it right by going for a classic sound, inovative because of his use of Old Western style. Give them a chance more than a first runthrough. You'll be suprised at how much they grow on you, but don't be suprised with their lack of punch.

Deertick is actualy just one boy, and he plays all the instruments. Puts on a lovely show too.

Yah, I have a problem with refering to all bands/projects/whatever as being plural.
