Barrett Martin on New Mexico's PBS Talking Zen: The Video and What His Life is Like Today

You know the drill, if you don't know who Barrett Martin is your an idiot, you have no business reading this, and I should fire my publicist, but he's a monkey and can't be reached my phone at the moment...



So as I was looking through some old youtube videos, I came across this and remembered that Barrett had graduated from the University of New Mexico, It was really strange to see him in this short PBS video, there's a few other cool ones on other people I've met like dancer Maria Benitez, so it was a little surreal for me to see another person I know and have common friends with here in Seattle over the course of over 20 years, in New Mexico- my home state,  and talking about how the desert makes him feel, his mild anxiety at the time which he quickly and permanently remedied with meditation and zen.  And after the last year of seeing him play a few times back here in Seattle , I think its clear that he's found his raison d' etre.

Grunge Cookbooks Bad Monkey Juice


After waking up and seeing peanut butter by the side of my bed, I am convinced that Sancho is trying to keep me at a chunky monkey weight. So right back at you monkey boy! Just for that this is your breakfast, lunch, and dinner today...well at least breakfast and lunch, I'll probably break down by dinner and let you have a Dick's burger, but your drinking this!
