Instagram photo number 99? Wow. Vanity strikes then, and a cleaned up Corey to boot. Fresh cut. Fresh scruff. What will post 100 be? #vanity #photo #work #wonder #recordstore #thoughts #you #inspiration #punk #pictures #awesome #faith #great #hope #love #light #cool #candid #wegmans #houseofguitars #gaslightanthem #inmyears #headphones #lunchbreak #man #loveyoumom  (at Wegmans)
One of the best pictures I’ve had taken at any Bonzai or Holiday Hangover through out the years, with one of the friendliest bands so far. 1-24-2013 #jroddywalston #jroddywalstonandthebusiness #concerts #work #words #recordstore #houseofguitars #thoughts #inspiration #photo #picture #awesome #great #candid #vanity #memories  (at Main Street Armory)
Never have I loved someone like this. The way things are now, it’s hard to see myself in any other place, with any other person, and quite honestly, I don’t wast time trying to imagine it any other way. For the last several days, I spent the most wonderful time at one of the best resorts on the planet, with the girl I love, and it was an irreplaceable moment in my life. The best part? I just know, it only gets better from here on out. Peace. Love. Understanding. I couldn’t have asked for better. #photo #heart #love #cheesey #sowhat #words #writing #thoughts #inspiration #awesome #great #lovenotes #cool #vanity #notes #

At the end of February, you might just be reading this excerpt in a bound book, long overdue on my part. Things to be covered: Love, envy, dystopia, and how all of these things can, together, make something so beautiful in a musical world so plagued with saturation and dysphoria. If you’re out there, and reading, I hope you’ll see this through with me. #Seasonalisms #poetry #compilation #february #comingsoon #tba #tbd #love #envy #poems #isntitenough #excerpt #thatsnotall #music #songbook #takingachance (at House of Guitars)
Five words on this point of view? Anticipation. Exhilaration. Therapeutic. Purposeful. Punk. There’s nothing more to say. #roc #rochester #punk #music #firehouse #saloon #venue #gig #preshow #warmups #soundcheck #fromthestage #photo  (at The Firehouse Saloon)
One ferocious gig after another, it’s hard to imagine it’s already been a whole year since I joined The Results. The impression that has been left upon me by the other 5 members of the band will last with me forever. To the bigger and better things ahead, I say, bring it on motherfucker! #punk #roc #rochester #music #newyears #resolutions #drums #drummer #photo #photography #hopedidit #happy #performing #picture #pictures #one  (at Montage Music Hall)
Together, we’ve triumphed as a creative team, kicking ass and carving our names in the memories of people all over our city. The Results, still Rochester’s punk rock party starters! #roc #rochester #theresults #band #gig #musicians #music #rock #punk #group #vanity #awesomeasfuck (at The Mall at Greece Ridge Center)
I’ll keep it simple, because as it is and you all know, I usually don’t: this picture really says it all and I’m proud of where I am, and who I’m with. It’s barely describable how grateful I am, and how absolutely floored I feel every single day I’m with her, but that’s okay. I’d rather save those words for her ears anyway. #christmas #holidays #2013 #newyear #roc #rochester #twentysix #inspiring #merrychristmas #xmas #life #love #candid #vanity #me #memories  (at Irondequoit)
An inspiring and extremely accomplished man, my Papa has seen so much of the world, experienced some of the most exciting experiences one can muster the time to experience, and has managed to remain a humble, distinguished gentleman that continues to keep my life in check. I can’t summon the appropriate words to describe how thankful I am and will be for years to come, but just know, in everything you’ve done, you’ve helped to shape me into a better man. Your years of umpiring and traveling for the USSA, and your stories of Hollywood have absolutely kept my eagerness to see the world, alive, and your life and love are invaluable to my continued existence. You will always be an integral part of what keeps me going, forever. #Papa #USSA #halloffame #theunsinkablemollybrown #hollywood #neverenough #twentysix #birthday #gettingold #me #photo #picture #grandfather #therealthing #therealdeal #blurb #vanity #family #kitchen #inspiring  (at Yolishous)
You were the most beautiful person in my world, and I’m reminded of it every single day. To be blessed with the ability to experience the beauty of this world, along with it’s stresses is a gift that I’m extremely grateful for, one that I wish had never been taken from you. So today, it may be my birthday, but it isn’t about me. It’s about you. I am proud to be your son, still, although you’re gone. You were my true grace, balance, and support, and without you, life has been harder than it ever was, but even in my disbelief, I know you’re always there. 
Take my doubt, and secure me. Continue to love me, even though I’m scared. From a son to his mother, I will always be yours. #happybirthday #mom #mother #RIP #love #memories #remembering #truth #photo #family #familyphoto #son #old #kid #child #bday #photography #kitchen #baby #candid #vanity #writing #picture #pictures #rochester #roc
Due out in Spring 2014 (exact date TBD) “HEARTSTRING: POISON LOVE” is the beginning of a poetic and personal expulsion of creativity, culminating over many years of writing for my own personal fulfillment. 

The first in a series of compilations, this collection brings together original works, written in dark and disparate times, inspired by the painful affects of a heart gone awry. The promise is to deliver something imperfect, overwhelming, and harsh, sacrificing not one bit of honesty.

It is my hope that this page will give you a clear and present perspective on the making of this compilation, from its very beginning, until it is released. 

Thank you kindly for any, and all of your support.

Updates and more information coming very, very soon!
