Logan Kroeber

This was my last correspondence with Chris. Despite being brief it says so much about him. Even in passing he was the thoughtful, creative, and hilarious person I will miss so much. I was so excited at the prospect of writing songs together, touring the world, and all the other little plans we made. I wish I would have told him that. But still, I’m so glad that my last words to him could let him know that we loved him, and we were missing him already.

Don’t lose any fingers in this cold snap bud. It’s freezing at night down here so I can only imagine what’s happening up there. Saw this the other day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjfTWGx5Oi0 a reminder of warmer times in Cowtown. Hope you and Rena are swell!

Bro City!!!!

Its the very truth. Its been the fuck cold up here for a little while. But it was so nice right before, it must be wreaking all kinds of havoc in the animal kingdom. I just hope they have access to jackets. Preferably made out of their own skins. Anyways…
Thanks for the vid and warm wishes!! I have never seen a skate video shot in cowtown before, its pretty cool seeing it in that context. I basically know/have walked/driven almost all of those places. And that CVG song is up there in my list of his rocking rockers to rock to.
So the other day I was driving a work truck (started a new job, its pretty funny) and it was so cold there was steam rising from literally everything. Car exhaust, frozen lakes, every last building. And the sun was insanely bright. There is a killer DJ on my local university radio station that plays music of the ‘americas’. Mostly folk songs and early music from spanish speaking countries. Anyways, he was playing this amazing jam by a dood named Silvio Rodriguez that blew my mind
See here:
Track three. Its a doosey. The bassline kills me. Made me think of you.
So if you find yourself in front of a computer on a tuesday between 12 and 2pm mountain time, go to cjsw.com and stream some shizz..
Take care pal,

I was hoping it would work out that way, the video I mean. Just the look of it made me think, “I bet Chris went to the dentist here, or rode his bike across that bridge one time to escape a pack of feral cats when he was young.” Stokage.

Also stokage for the tunes. And bass on highlighted tune. I too have vivid memories of hearing songs on college radio while driving the company van. I love hearing new music in the car period, but when you hear something jamming while delivering boxes or whatever it always sounds just a little more elevated and removed from reality.
What kind of job/truck you got going on anyway?

Oh, and this work truck, are the rims big? Do it ride good?
(It should be noted that this message and Chris’ response are both referencing the song Ice Cream Paint Job http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9bx8YyON28&ob=av3n. A tune that brought us all much joy after shows.)

I wouldn’t go that far… It kind of drives…
Poop on the inside, crap on the outside pa pa pa, pa pa pa, pa pa P A delivery paint job!
Good to hear from you. How’s things good buddy?

How’s things good=me finding a crazy amp head in the trash down at the practice space. It’s a Univox, really heavy (might be for bass) and full of tubes. I don’t know how to fix such things but thought I’d hold onto it for you. Then you can combine it with the cab we got out of the trash and you can make a total Secret Studios frankensteiner. But I dunno if those are even sought after, it just looked worth saving.

Meric and I have our first practice since Fallon tomorrow morning. It’s time to break that rusty cage, Cornell styles.

Oh man! You guys could do some killer sound garden covers! Im assuming practice is over by now, but in my mind you guys are still in there, laboriously hashing out Jesus Christ pose…
That’s crazy wicked awesome cool about that amp. Why do people just throw things in the garbage there? Yikes..
I really appreciate that you thought of me though. It’ll be perfect when I get that cab up and running. And it’s especially cool because a local amp tech guy is going to start offering tube amp building classes. I just emailed him about it today! Ha! The universe is pretty cool sometimes.
Thanks for the radness, as per usual.

    Hell yeah Logan. I just had the best laugh of the day at Chris’ rendition of ice cream paint job. No one else could make a poo joke so very high brow and brilliant. This post made my day.
