I hate bios, there's plenty of fabricated, fornicated stuff out there if you wanna go root around for it.

I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina.
I worked in a goldsmith shop and an auction company growing up.
I came up at the feet of honest to God mountain people singing bluegrass music about dying and losing lovers. My dad told me stories about our family killing people, killing each other and the generalities that go along with a family of bootlegers, preachers and splintered women.

I didn't think it was fashionable to talk about those things and then one day the apostles of suburbia began making up songs about how cool it was, then took it to the people and sang it to 'em.
- I don't know about that.
These are my stories, I try to be as honest as a liar and a thief knows how to be, I hope you find some threads of truth in here.
I like rocks too, I root around in the banks and ditches, dumpsters and dirt every chance I can. Books are nice, I read 'em a lot.
I always wanted to be a magician, I guess it's a fine line between Houdini and a Hootenanny.
Prime numbers drive me crazy, taking apart stuff really gets me going, and a fresh dumpster in a hoity-toity part of town, well, forget it, I'm going diving.
That's me, enjoy

We just got the news it's official! Matt King's "Bristol" off the album "RUBE" will be used in Season Dos (2) of HBO's hit series Eastbound & Down! We are completely ecstatic to say the least. I can't wait to see what antics Kenny Powers will be conjuring up as "Bristol" plays in the background. With Will Ferrell and Adam McKay as executive producers there is no telling what will happen.
Looks like by my calculations that it will premier on:
Season 2 Epidsode 6 (Chapt. 12) on Halloween night. Be sure to tune into HBO at 9:30pm CST on Oct. 31st or set your TiVo!
