Hello friends, foes, and fellow humans! Today I am embarking on the bloggiest and doggiest of Snoop Bloggy Blogs. I've had a few exciting adventures in recent weeks since our tour with AAR ended, and I'd like to share some of them with you, if you'll allow it. Without further ado, let's start with Bamboozle;
That's my pal Parker Brown using my drums as a chair. He belongs to Brendan, who sings for The Receiving End of Sirens, the band with whom I performed at Bamboozle.
That's a shot of us onstage while the sun was setting, courtesy of my friend Carl.
The next day I got to hang with The Maine boys, which is always a treat. Seeing them meant seeing my old pal Mudslide Jim. Miss you Jimmy!
I also fulfilled a lifelong dream of seeing the Foo Fighters. Easily the best rock band on the planet right now, in my humble opinion. Dave Grohl is a living legend, and a humble, badass dude to boot.
I know what you're thinking- butterflies?! How did we get here?? Well, after Bamboozle I spent a couple nights in NYC visiting friends. My friend Laura took me to the Natural History museum (which I love), and one of the exhibits was live butterflies. It was pretty cool, I'll be honest.
Whether human or butterfly, always beware of hitchhikers...
Here's me with a replica of an Easter Island statue.
How about this Megaloceros skeleton? Can you imagine carrying that kinda weight on your head. This thing was Lady Gaga before she herself was Lady Gaga.
T-Rex attack! Ahhh!
Since I got back to CA, I've been using the ol' juicer every day. This is one of my favorite concoctions. I've been calling it the Green Monstah (go Sox!).
A couple nights after I got home I had the pleasure of seeing Kimbra perform at Hollywood Forever. She blew me away!
This last weekend I went to Vegas with my pal Adrian. We saw the UFC fight on Saturday. It ruled!
Later that night we saw Skrillex, which went until the next morning. I noticed a large amount of attractive women gathering near me at the bar, then quickly realized I was standing by Benecio del Toro.

I'm bummed this is the only evidence, but I got to meet David Lee Roth aka Diamond Dave aka the singer of VAN HALEN. He was super cool and friendly, and honestly has the craziest smile I've ever seen on a human being.
Van Halen in action!
A very serious warning at the taco truck in Echo Park!
Lastly, here's a shot of the awesomeness that is Active Child. If you haven't checked out "You Are All I See" yet you are missing the boat!
Speaking of good tunes, I'm gonna end this SBB with some recommended listening. Lately I've been jamming LP's "Into the Wild" ep. Check her out, I promise her voice will knock your socks off. Better yet, the ep is tracked LIVE, so it's all her. Pure talent!
Thanks for tuning in everyone. I hope you're enjoying your summers, and we can't wait to share more new music with you all soon!
Peace and love,
