A Drummer’s Perspective

A Drummer’s Perspective

Being a drummer, you don’t get a lot of opportunity to voice your opinion, especially if you are simply a hired hand. Usually the only people who want to hear from drummers are other drummers. I thank Matthew for allowing me to post my thoughts on his website. I just got back from playing one

The Invasion Is Nigh

The Invasion Is Nigh

This is what will be invading my house in three days. Just one of them, but we’re assuming he’s the advanced recon team relaying intel back to the horde… Of course, if we feed it and water it, scientists tell us it could grow as large as 120 pounds or more… yet still retain the

Super-Sized Science

Entry by Deanna Rachel. This entry needs artwork! Note from Matthew: Sadly, this one really doesn’t fit the canon since Dexter’s name never changes… however, Deanna took the time to write so dammit I’m taking the time to post it! My name is Dexter Jared Peterson. I am 26 years old and I live in

Round One… FIGHT!

Political Absurdity Begins In Grade School

Some of you may be wondering how we got here. I have a hunch, and I want it spread far and wide. This knowledge needs to be universal. Any time you read a new meme or tweet or slanted story (especially one you agree with), this bit of info should be standing on your shoulder

The Chartbombing Debriefing

The Chartbombing Debriefing

So yesterday was Chartbombing Day for The Lives of Dexter Peterson. If you’re reading this, I probably didn’t need to tell you because I emailed, Google Plussed, Facebooked, and tweeted about it a thousand times yesterday. Now the dust is settling from the virtual cash mob of yesterday and it’s time to see the results.

Today we bomb the charts!

In a nutshell, we’re trying to storm the iTunes and Amazon daily top-ten charts today. All it will take is a 99¢ commitment from you to make this happen! If we manage to push this song into either of the two charts, I’ll be sending out the exclusive Commentary Album to everyone who signed up

Good Morning, City I’ve Never Lived In

Good Morning, City I’ve Never Lived In

For the record: I’ve never actually lived in New York City. In fact, when I wrote the chapters about Dexter Peterson living in New York City, I lived in Nashville and had only been to the Northeast once or twice. Now that I live in Boston, I almost feel like a traitor for opening the

Who The Hell Is Dexter Peterson?

Who The Hell Is Dexter Peterson?

So my latest album (and novella, and graphic novel) is called The Lives of Dexter Peterson, in case you haven’t heard me raving about it lately. Sure, it’s a new batch of musics and quite possibly the best-sounding record I’ve ever made, but I don’t think I’ve ever really gone into detail about who the

Sex, Drugs, and… Comic Books?

Sex, Drugs, and… Comic Books?

I rarely post stories about drug dealers- something of an occupational hazard if you play bars -but this one caught my eye.  Apparently giant SUV’s with gold rims and an all-bass sound system aren’t enough for some dealers… Aaron Castro of Commerce City, Colo., was one of the leaders of a 41-person methamphetamine ring, which
