we released this video for far away exactly one year ago today! check it out and send it to those that are too far away to be lovin today!

my darlin my dear

do you ever wish i was near

when im far away?

my peach, my daffodil

please come here before you kill us both

hey i may

write you a letter from space

but the pony express couldn’t express

the look on my face in this place

cause i am home and im so alone

on my bed writing you a poem

cause you’re far away

and as the sun paints the sky pink and red

i keep thoughts of you inside my head

when i am seeking sleep

but tonight the crescent moon is still and cold

from the empty spot that i’m left to hold cause

you’re not here with me

i kissed you goodbye this mornin’

but that was much too long ago

you crept out early and i was yawnin

cause i was drunk the night before

sorry if i was abrasive

you’re just too damn beautiful

until you’re back here

and we’re paintin

im just gonna have to sing this song alone

my almond my pear

my cotton ball for a head of hair

little baby

i’ll be the cream cheese you be the jelly

we’ll get on some toast we can be happy

and oh so tasty

there’s something about those doe-y eyes

that traps me and makes me lose my mind

oh please somebody save me i’m going crazy

this damnable distance is a conflict of interest

my lady

you’re far away

<3 k

we’ll be making a semi exciting announcement pretty soon so stay tuned for that.

we’re playing a show in san jose on saturday february 16th at homestead lanes with BLACKBIRD RAUM. it should be a lot of fun and those guys are legendary folk bunkers. they even have a wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbird_Raum

in very important news, LIVE 105 has opened the question to the public about what band they’d like to see on the local stage of bfd this year. please leave a comment about RIN TIN TIGER at this link to see us rock alongside some famous people. http://live105.cbslocal.com/2013/02/07/what-local-band-should-play-bfd-2013-please-comment-below/

tour recap

it all started out with a smooth cruise to davis where we played SOPHIAS THAI KITCHEN. the owner, “kevin” (what a great name) was an ultimate chill boy and told us to order anything and everything we wanted off the menu. andrew and i got some big bad i.p.a’s and sean simply said: “I’ll have the mojito please”. this would become a theme. sean was always sucking on candy too. gotta keep his blood sug up high high high.

we played and felt good. our brehz adam and deena came out to support the good word of RTT. adam runs a sick clothing company called coffee and cigarettes. go buy some shit boyz http://coffeeandcigarettes.bigcartel.com/

we went to deenas house and did spliffs and tequila. we ran around an elementary school and smoked baby cigars under the stars. i broke my yo-yo walking back to the car. we slid over to gam gams and andrew took the best bed right off the bat. that would become a theme as well. oh yes and we ate ice cream mounds bars RIGHT before bed…. (bad boys?)

we woke up to cinnamon rolls and pastries and apples and bananas and coffee thanks to gramma who never fails to roll out the brekki. we stuffed our heads and then headed towards santa cruz. we were staying with andrews oldest pal *since they were babies*, todd. we went to his house and sipped pacificos while we waited to go to the crepe place to jahm.

showed up at the crepe place and did our thang with many thanks to the jolly llamas and the gal who opened the show (who’s name i can’t recall). it was tons of fun and people were dancing like psychos. we were all sweaty and feeling awesome at the end of that one. oh yah, and famous band mom denise elliott rolled through. come on now!

we went back to todds and sean and i shared a kalifornia king sized mattress… it was like he wasn’t even there! *thank god*

moving on we dipped to big sur with big hopes and dreams in our pockets. we got to the maidenhead pub and got fed and drank. set up and jammed and made $2 and had no where to stay. needless to say it was classic… we drank a bunch of red bulls threw up the “V” (for vassever) and smashed to L.A at 11 p.m. we got to venice beach around 6 a.m and we were all static electricity and andrew was in a blanket. we walked along the beach until andrew lost his slipper and i fell down. andrew was hungy so he got huffy and stormed back to the car. sean and i met some weird coke head that was trying to get us to smoke with his cause he’d been up all night. his tagline was “jesus h. christ!”

we went to this bad boy unlmt… diner that was the greatest breakfast i’ve had in my whole life. 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, hash browns and 2 veg sausages for 4.50… wtf!!

we all napped in our cars for a little bit because andrews aunt and uncle weren’t awake yet and that was our home base. when i said “we” i mean everyone but me. sean parked in some dummy spot where the sun was melting me no matter what so i wandered up and down the street with one of those 50 cent sticky hands feeling warmer and warmer. somehow we ended up at the cool folk shop “McCabes” and i played a foldable guitar. by that time we got a hold of unky and aunty so we dipped to thousand oaks where we all promptly passed out. i woke up super hot and in that 5 oclock waking up from a nap stage. i had to splash myself with water + i felt like i was made of dirt.

aunty made us tri tip and potatoes, it was off the hook. andrew and i shared a bed last night and had tons of dark chat… hehehehehehe

the next day we played at eleven bar in san diego which was fuckin awesome. picture a tiny bottom of the hill where drink tickets can get you a 25 ounce beer. we were faded. i was smoking record amounts of sticks and some crazy guy on acid wouldn’t leave me alone. badgirl squad 101 rolled out and openned up the dance floor which is a savior. 2 girls dancing can really light up a whole room. thank you to our dancing folk!

we had a great time and shed tears on our way to sean and i’s uncle and aunts house and shit them drivers were boutta be sleeping at the wheel we were goin so hard!!! we rolled up at 2 30 and andrew took the best bed and i was on the floor mat… i think sean was hanging from the ceiling? i was f.a.d.e.d that night and and awoke to the sun magnifying glassing me in the face through the sunlight and i was all red and radishy in the morning. my aunt said i wasn’t looking good but i recovered cause she made a fatty breakfast that is now the work of legends. did it happen or did it not?? i don’t even know. lemme just say there was motha fuckin babies in the building and that morning shit was gettin way too cute with my nieces.

aiiiiiight.

san diego = cool.

our next show was hotel c.a.f.e in l.a which was kind of GUAC! because there was a backline +i fucked up pretty looks for the only time in my whole career. oh yeah and we were all tripping on BENZOS (just kidding). but really the lights were too bright but the fam bam rolled through and our true cub king daryl who’d heard us on radio valencia was there to show love and he rocks. truest bad boy out had to go to ANOTHER show right when we were done cause he’s such a supporter. brehz could learn a thing or two from his edicate! our fucking gram gram and gram mom from da other side showin love and they got us sandwiches before the show come on now!! I <3 family. we got hella sipped out after the show with our other boy TROy from AB & the Sea who recently relocated to l.a. i think we were in a gay bar and the music was super loud. we had to crawl back towards thousand oaks and once again my bad boy drivers were like: ‘PINCH ME BOY PINCH ME BOY I’M SLEEPIN UP HERE” too bad i was asleep dreaming of clouds n shit AHAHAHAAHAH

we didn’t die, and andrew clonked out on the couch without a word. i got the bed to myself until 6 a.m! there was bagels in the morning and we chilled with a dog named indie… he loved our band.

off next to SLO where the TRUE BREH BAD BOY SQUAD was really really really out in these streets. we busked at a farmers market for A MIN  and each made $7. haha!  then we played at linnaeas cafe which was bommmmmmmb. hella brehscubscouts rolled through to support RTT and man i was about to shed a tear. we love SLO!!

afterwords we ate hella frys and drank beers acrost the street. we stayed with mr.man sean garnsney and watched that dr.suess movie bout the guy with the mustache who likes trees… don’t remember what it’s called. i was hangiing tough like usuaul but my MATES turned in and was DROOLIN by the time i got to the room. ha hahahahaha PUNKS!!

the next morning we got in a big argument because being in a band is a total bf/gf situation and we continued to argue over free breakfast at linnaes and when we busked the pier at pismo beach. IT’S ALL STRAIGHT THO!!!!!!!!!!!!

next stop was fresno and we were all feeling emo that tour was nosediving towards it’s end. we rolled up to cafe infoshop and PICKED UP A COUPLEA TALL CANS HAHAHAHAHHA and chilled with arguably the truest badboy resternaut. hella cubrehz rolled to that show including all of our mormon relatives *boing*. it was super fun and we love you fresno!

somehow we got offered to play another show after that show at some swanky thai resteraunt so we packed up and bounced the fuck out. when we rolled up it was full of guidos with collered shirts with skulls on them and shit and a metal band was playing. we all looked at each other and said “uh oh” all at once. the show was condemned but it was TOTALLY V cause we were following the true spirit of tour pluse we practiced our punk rock anthem “think of killin’” loud and proud. we peaced oout of that spooky spot and got some god damn in n out.

we stayed with resternaut AKA nick that night and I SNATCHED THE BED LIIKE I SHOULD. so i snoozed like some critter. we were feeling HELLA EMO the next morning as we put on temporary smurf tats and went to our last show in merced. OKAY the partisan in merced is fucking TIGGGGHHTT.

we went to black bear diner for our “final” meal and shed tears over bottles of coors light that were $4.50.

at the venue we was waitin for shit to get crackin and i was outside TALKING SHIT with the bartender when some little condemned breh tried to swoop by and steal her iphone! this bruh had been circling on his bike for days and it turns out he’s a god damned thief. lo and behold this breh (myself) was the only witness so i had to give a description to the police. i thought all was said and done but in the middle of our set the police man insisted on yanking me off stage to go check out this kid who they thought was the one. i don’t always get pulled off stage during shows by police but this was one of those times. there was a mad ass dog in the back seat of the car! *WHAT HAPPENS NEXT HAS BEEN CENSORED BY THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA POLICE DEPARTMENT*

when i got back luckily nobody had left and we just rocked it harrrrrrrrrd. the show was done for and so was the tour. the partisan was a great place to end it cause the staff and the crowd were straight brehs.

we cruised back to sf and then played sunday streets the next day. haven’t seen mr. andrew “the fiddler” skewes-cox since.

LOVE
