CHANGE OF ADDRESS
I am officially packing up my things and moving over to the new Tumblr account: http://www.ayoungblog.com/ which has a lot more horsepower under the hood than Modern Gardening does — so do yourself a favor and follow my new trail of bread crumbs. -Adam

I dream of a better world where chickens can cross roads without having their ulterior motives questioned.
All I can say is I was enchanted to beat you.
John: “Hey that ranger Argon guy, why is he wearing a crown?” Me: “Because LOTR is a tale about Argon, his friend Boron and their adventures with Zinc, Iron, Aluminum and Mercury.”
They’ll fall in love and here’s the...
Plot twist: call me definitely.
My cool friends on Facebook change their statuses...
Gratuitous soundcheck shenanigans. ...
You’re not a true fan unless someone plugs you in and you start cooling people down.
Computers and food.
Also, not to beat a dead horse but I think it’s worth putting to bed the misgiving that my record label has “negatively influenced” my new music because of the way it sounds to some people. With zero disrespect toward the opinions of others, I can assure you it’s really quite the contrary. I’ve become head over heels fascinated with what makes people tick, and...

I wish I was an octopus so I could chokeslam eight people at once.
If someday we all go to prison for downloading music, I hope they segregate us by genre.

You crawl onto a strange beach like a turtle and you’re not sure where you are but it doesn’t matter. I think you were in the cockpit of a fighter jet on an aircraft carrier and you were about to die...
Hey, it’s Adam. I meet a lot of people around the world and they all invariably tell me to get a Tumblr. Last week an old man made eye contact with me and said, “You obviously spend all your time on computers… I can tell by your dead eyes.” So here I am. Hold me close and breathe on my face.
