The Subconscious Mind
Backstory - I woke up one morning and found this bit of free verse in my phone notes. I had written it the night before. The catch? I don’t remember waking up to write it: “This town. It’s lost all semblance of charm. With the dip spit sheen teasing and bouncing the light through every dark alley and stairwell, those hostels for lost dreams. Rain drip, gutter slide,...

We put a lot into recording these diddies. With the release of this EP, Leslie and I have officially recorded and released 10...
The State of the Union
Poetry. We live in a world completely devoid of poetry. Rhetorical flourish is dead. Beauty has given up the ghost. Color for the sake of light has been erased. Light for the sake of hope has been snuffed out. It’s all politics now. Politics and policy. No right brain, no left brain. No brains at all – just the “left” and the “right.” With a capital “L” and a capital “R,” respectfully – and with...
If the tide is high for too long, you forget what the steady ebb and flow is hiding. Once the water recedes - returning back into its own ever-changing embrace - all the life and treasure buried in the sand is once again exposed. There are periods of time in which I completely forget I have this. But, once the water recedes and the shoreline grows again, it find it sitting just where I left it....

Thunder Cats Are Go - EP
Oh, hey. It’s The Night Vines - or Leslie and Dylan, however you want to address us. We couldn’t wait until Christmas to release more music, so we put together a little 9 minute EP called Thunder Cats Are Go to tide you over. We figured it was time to do a few covers. There will be more where this came from, but, being children of the dot com era, we’re all about instant gratification. This time...
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more, Men were deceivers ever; One foot in sea, and one on shore, To one thing constant never. Then sigh not so, But let them go, And be you blithe and bonny, Converting all your sounds of woe Into Hey nonny, nonny. Sing no more ditties, sing no mo Of dumps so dull and heavy; The fraud of men was ever so, Since summer first was...

Oklahoma decided to have a few tornadoes today. As usual, they kick-flipped over the main OU campus. However, this doesn’t change the fact that the university community was still in a state of panic. Rushing to get cars into parking garages before the hail started, completely devoid of any semblance of traffic law knowledge. Long story short, I ended up having to spend a lot of time in the...

robdelaney: A 17 year old girl wrote me a message on Tumblr asking if it was “wrong” for her to have the same sense of humor as me. Hi [REDACTED], It’s very nice of you to write. The answer is no, it’s not wrong for a 17 year old girl like you to have the exact same sense of humor as me. I am DELIGHTED… @robdelaney is a class act.

Crazy wind today.
When I was in high school, I wanted to start a band. A post-hardcore rock band. Instead, I worked at a law firm and made money. Now that I’m in law school, I’m in a band. An acoustic singer/songwriter duo. The twist? I don’t make money.
