While I did not win an Oscar at tonight’s Academy Awards, my cover of Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop passed the 900,000 views mark on YouTube…which, if you ask me, counts for something!
Thanks to all of you for watching, to Miley and RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment for granting us the honor, and to New York Magazine, Vulture, Huffington Post and everyone else who has helped get the word out about the little song that could.
Let’s get this puppy to 1 million views, eh?! That sounds really cute.
A photographer named Leonard Martin Hughet reached out to me a few weeks back and asked if he could take my picture while he was visiting Portland from San Francisco. I figured it was the perfect time to immortalize my enormous holiday beard, so here she is, courtesy of Mr. Hughet’s talents!
The pinching myself continues, friends! We released the video for “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” on Halloween (just 6 weeks ago) and already it has been watched 450,000 times. Thank you so much for pressing play so much, world! It is making me feel so very special.
Help us get this thing to half a million by the end of the year! Click HERE to watch it on my YouTube channel or press play below.
OH. HELL. YES.
My new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks“, the 1st single we have put out post-Miley boom, has passed the 300,000 views mark in just 3 weeks since its release! I seriously love you all for embracing this very scary piece of dance music horror filth we created. It’s really fun so have so many people dig it!
Huge thanks to Spencer Lee Carroll for writing this song with me, to Gino Mari for Mixing and Producing it, to Robert D’Esposito for being such a creep in the video, to Kevin Forrest for his vision, to Ben Starkey for his mad skills, to Emily Yurek for making everything so beautiful, and to Josh Smith and Kelly Raine for making everything work while we were shooting. I love Hippodrome Films and can’t wait to work with you kids again soon!

Everyone involved in the making of my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” has been freaking over the response so far! We released the single and video one week ago and it has been watched over 72,000 times on YouTube and over 8,000 times on Vimeo – which puts our view count at over 80,000 in just 7 days! Amazing, right?
Thanks for all the love, sweet world!

It’s Halloween tomorrow and my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” premiers tonight at Midnight, but you can watch it here first! This is the title cut from my record by the same name and is the 4th and final single from that album. The song is about power and control and being shackled to my experience in the world, so we tried to portray that by way of this psycho-sexual short film.
I shot the video in Portland with Hippodrome Films and I am really happy with how it turned out. Thanks to the folks at Hippodrome for taking such good care of me (and my song).

Every so often people send me stuff that they’ve created with my songs on their own, and I always find it moving when something of mine has spoken to someone else somehow.
This week I received a video from an artist named Dandy Jon who is also a fan. Dude made a music video of clips from Greg Araki‘s film “The Living End” set to my song “Things Are Looking Up” (the opening track from my 2010 record “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday“) and holy shit. It’s awesome.
