Songwriting in Vermont…

From Jackie:

Video by Jackie Castro

In which there is songwriting (we do not get to see the songwriting) (but we hear some of the song!) and scenery, there is giggling with Maddie and Hazel, there is more music, there is more songwriting (we do not get to see the songwriting), there is more Hazel and more Maddie, and there is a concert, bits of which we actually get to see–and there is a second concert (we only get to see a tiny it of the second concert).

Also there is songwriting in Vermont from Michael. Or at least there is a lot about the trip to Vermont–some of which involves songwriting!:

All four videos by Michael Castro

In which there is more RV life, much scenery, and much food. Also Kandee and, yes, music! And also farm things, like chickens and alpaca. (You heard me.) And a giant waterslide. And oh, yeah, food.

More NYC vlogging

Hey, everyone was there, I guess everyone gets to vlog about it!

Video by Jackie Castro

In which we get another look at unglamorous RV life, there is a show in Buffalo (we do not get to see the show) (but we see a smidge of Delta Rae’s), and there is NYC! In NY there are meetings and food and meetings with food and Pokemon and selfies, CDs are real, and there is a show (we do not get to see the show). Also there is the Empire State Building because New York, and more meetings and a video recording session (we do not get to see the recording session) and a relationship anniversary.

Moar vlogs!

One from Michael:

In which there is motorcycle RV maintenance, and there is food, and then there is more RV life (this time with added children!).

And one from Jackie:

In which there is a little bit of a trip to New Hampshire, there is the arrival of merch, and there is the RV-tripping-sendoff. (Yes, yes, you have seen it before. There are three vloggers here, it happens!) Then there is RV cooking (it is hard to balance in a moving RV) and other meals; also there is other RV life. And then there is backstage at a show in Ann Arbor (we do not get to see any of the show) (but we get to see a little of Delta Rae’s show!).

More vlog from New York…


Video by Michael Castro

In which there is backstage at the NYC venue, including a first look at the physical EPs; there is a view of the New York skyline; there are many buildings (well, it IS NYC); there is the City Winery recording (we do not see the recording); there is recording for iHeartRadio (we do not see the recording); there is more commuting (still not exciting); there is driving around in the RV (also still not exciting); and there is (family) food.

(And if you know where to look–which you do not–you can get a quick glimpse of me at the venue.) (Okay, of my back. Still me!)

Oh, look–more vlog…

Only this one is about New York, which is where I live, so it is most important of all of them.


I mean… Well, actually, that IS what I mean.

Although it does not start in NYC. First there is food, and some food, and some more food; then there is a long, long drive; and THEN there is New York! In which commuting to NYC is exciting (not actually exciting–it’s just New Jersey) (no offense, New Jersey), there is Penn Station (definitely not glamorous), there is a subway (not as exciting as you’d think) (you should not have to pay twice to turn around, definitely not), and there is giving up on the subway. (So much for exciting New York travel.) Then there is Rockefeller Center (I used to walk through there on the way to work), and more food, and more coffee, and interesting meetings, and Times Square (Times Square is exciting ALL the time), and Carnegie Hall (Carnegie Hall is not always exciting), and Central Park (Central Park is a BIG PARK, that is just a little corner of Central Park).

Perhaps there will be more New York City next vlog–something to look forward to!

Vlog roundup

From Michael–

First, Grand Opening with DNCE: In which the gang goes to the opening of Nellie’s Southern Kitchen (yes, there is food) (and we see a bit of DNCE’s performance) (and several other performers, too) (watch and find out). Also there is a water fight!

Video by Michael Castro

Second, Leaving for Tour!!: In which there is a tour of the RV (sort of), doing many various mechanical-like things to the RV (hey, Michael, they make special fin combs for a.c. units) (also a raw potato is good for getting broken bulbs out of a socket), a (late) preview of tee shirts, and soccer. And the tour begins!

Third, Chicago Deep Dish!: In which we see some RV life (it is not all glamour). (Jason! Put down the phone while driving!) (And at least get a traveling mug.) (AND PUT DOWN THE PHONE!) And there is food, of course–in the RV (Jackie cooks alot) and not in the RV.

(I think We are The People that are being talked to.)

Last, First Show with Delta Rae!!: In which Jackie keeps on cooking, Michael finds his shirt, we go backstage at The Ark, there is a SHOW (we do not get to see the show) (but we get a look at the merch) (and we hear a little of Delta Rae’s show), there is Green Room graffiti, and there is more RV life. And there is food. Of course there is.

ETA: After last (because it’s a day later), Jackie’s take on Nellie’s Grand Opening: In which everyone vlogs, there are many places to eat and much food (wait–isn’t that Michael’s Thing?), there is horizontal rehearsal, and there is Grand Opening music (see above) and food (see above) and Jonases.

Video by Jackie Castro

ETAA After after-last, one more from Michael–RV Band Practice + New Song: In which more coffee is obtained, a campsite is visited, RV life is still not all glamour, Michael wants Buffalo wings but without wings, and there is another show–or there will be. AND yes! There is practice, and it is of a song not on the EP (although we have heard it in bootleg, so not entirely new to us). With lip syncing by Jason!

(Oh, and Jackie? It IS safe to go to Israel! I have tons of family living there, it is scary but much scarier looking at it from the US and much less scary when you are there. GO, IT IS AWESOME!!!)

And here’s another from the Wabac Machine*

In which Michael has a birthday! Also there is a show (which we get to see a very little of) (but we do get some behind-the-scenes stuff!) and there is a traveling (EYES ON THE ROAD AND HANDS ON THE WHEEL, JASON!!!).

And there is, it goes without saying, food.

…I’ve definitely decided it’s a thing.


*Yes, I am old enough to remember Mr. Peabody and Sherman from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. IT’S A CLASSIC, OKAY? Also, get off my lawn.
