I have no fear of darkness
when you are here too.
You see things over the course of a life, you see them from afar and you catalog them away in the back of your mind. At some point, if they stay there unseen by your actual eyes, unseen in person, they begin to lose their meaning. They become photographs stored in a photo album you cannot touch. Sometimes, you must go to them, you must make them real again. Only when you know the sound of your footsteps in large and exalted halls, only when you know the temperature of the marble, only when you know the warmth of the lights that shine down, does that meaning return.

This, is what it sounds like to hear your favorite musician play your favorite song during sound check when you are the only ones in the entire theater. This is what Rad sounds like. I have said it once and I will say it again, if you are not following my friend @gregoryalanisakov and buying his albums you are doing yourself an incredible injustice.
Spent the entire day and night with one of my favorite people in the world yesterday, @gregoryalanisakov . Funny how you can start a day as friends who haven’t met yet, and end it as brothers. Rare is the day you meet someone who actually feels like you do, sees the world through similar eyes, and feels the same urges to escape from crowds. Thank you @gregoryalanisakov for a rad day of purchasing an egg, playing Mexican guitars in D.C. pawn shops, busboys and poets, sound checks, 4Bucks and backstage antics. Here’s to our bookshop tour and the album we are going to make.
Everyone, if you aren’t following @gregoryalanisakov you are missing out. Please do. Now. Tell him @tylerknott sent you. (at The Lincoln Theatre)
I don’t care who you are, what you do for a living, what you believe in, everyone, everywhere, loves a good dinosaur. Hello Mr. T-Rex. (at National Museum of Natural History)
I didn’t realize libraries could look quite so beautiful. My goodness.
