These photos were taken during one of my scary as shit night time runs in Bennett's Pond. I'm using my Black Diamond Icon headlamp and trying not to bust my ass on rocks, roots, stumps, ice, or trail demons.


These photos are from the last recording session we did. The song is called "Drug Holiday" and it's a 28 minute long trip through mental illness and poor decision making skills. The real studio pictures were taken at Deadverse Studios in Union City, NJ where we recorded some vocals and mixed. The other pictures are of Carriage The Weak Studios which is actually my closet-like bedroom. We recorded about 85% of the vocals for the song straight into my laptop. Amazing experience, amazing results.

This mornings run was one of the most difficult I've ever done. It was cold, there was a light coating of snow on the ground, and in less than 2 miles I soaked my feet in an icy puddle and smashed the arch of my foot on the point of a rock. The leaves were iced over and felt like running on 4 inch thick crunching honeycombs. It was too rough to hop into the Rock Garden stream so I grabbed a stick for balance and crossed on a fallen tree. My first trip across went pretty smoothly. My second? Not so much. I came very close to falling into the drink and, in hindsight, would have been better off. By the end of this run I'd completely jacked up the arch of my right foot and managed to injury my left achilles. Not a good day at the office.

Knee deep stream, Temperature in the teens. No stopping for pictures today.

It was eventually faster to just run through rather than around all of the downed branches on the trail from the storm earlier this week.
