The Empire Strikes Back… soon…


I know it has been far too long. I know that this website that once flourished with food-porn, half-witty (badly written) observations and silly-jingles has become but a wasteland of jpegs and mp4s. My sincerest apologies for all of this.

I am re-learning how to use my computer… re-learning how to type and use Lightroom and Word Press. It’s going slowly – but it’s starting to come back to me.

I ensure all of you that stories of food and booze, lore of the bands and the people I come across in my nomadic life of splendor – will all return shortly. 

Until then, I encourage you to scour past posts on both this site and my original blog site,

Guten Apetite,

  1. Hey Matt. I have seen you with Trivium a few times in Dallas and have spent years listening to you guys. I saw a video you released recently that called out the generic garbage people are putting out nowadays and I could not agree with you more. Your work has influenced my band heavily and if you were to have the time to listen to a song or so from our new EP that would be rad. We are called The Outlawed. A simple Google search with our name and our Facebook page pops up. I also attached the link to our page as my website. Keep doing what you’re doing. I’m sure I will see you soon from the pit. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Hey Matt, also saw the same video that the dude above me saw! Him and I are on the same page lol you should check out my band too! From small town IL and there are like no places to play around here. We want the dream that you’ve ascertained and are willing to do anything… Anything. We are called “Trepidus”. You can check our demo on sound cloud “Trepidus217″ as well out Facebook, Twitter, and Inatagram pages. Let us know what you think! Thank you \m/

    Also we totally met you in Sauget IL at Pop’s, killer set. Between you and Machine Head, you guys pretty much blew our minds and splattered them on wall. Thank you.
