clintwells This is harder than it seems but totally worth it.
En route to Austin to play the Parish tonight. It's rare that I'm in Austin playing a non-Bob Schneider show. If we like each other come get a hug. If not, well okay. #goodassvibes

clintwells The swamps in New Orleans are oddly beautiful. Makes me think of old guitars and old stories and old love feeling new again. Like the first time you heard a goldtop Les Paul or your grandparents laughing at a joke you don't have to understand to laugh along with them. Let's all meet at the swamplands and hug each other forever. Deal? 6d

clintwells Last winter I made a badass rock record with one of my best friends and some of my favorite musicians on the planet. Watch the EPK (link in bio) and look out for the new @matthewmayfield release on 4/9/15.
This was recorded almost entirely live with @paulmoak @anthonylucido @matthewmayfield @weeullane and myself.

clintwells Hi everyone. I was inspired by @joshfreese to participate in the #wearealluncool campaign. A lot of people use social media to brag about or exaggerate the events in their lives in order to stave off the emptiness and general existential malaise of life. I’ve definitely been guilty of this myself. The #wearealluncool campaign exists to create a forum of solidarity to let down our guard and admit some things about ourselves that are, well, pretty fucking uncool. Life is tough for many of us. Every day beautiful, amazing things happen in our lives and I’m all about celebrating them. But being a bit more transparent and human helps us become more thankful for the sweet moments. Here are a few things about me in a long list that I’m willing to share with you:

1. When I was in high school I had terrible acne. Some days I pretended to be sick to avoid going to school. I used to keep concealer (women’s makeup) in my backpack and daily put it on my face to cover up the acne. I never thought that time of my life would end. Although I’m 31 years old and fairly self-confident, I’m still haunted by those four years of my life.

2. My face gets super red a lot. Usually when I feel embarrassed or when a lot of people are listening to me talk. Sometimes it happens even when I’m glad to see a person. For example, if I bump into a friend of mine at Trader Joe’s, my face will noticeably blush. I don’t know what the deal is but I HATE it.

3. Although I’m a normal sized person, I spend an obsessive amount of time worrying about appearing thin. Because of this I am truly unable to enjoy food, whether I’m forcing myself not to eat for days or eating like an insane food monster. I generally refuse to look in mirrors and sometimes even shower without ever looking down at my body.
These confessions are not me looking for compliments, I assure you. They are me letting you know that although a lot of my social media presence is me trying to convince you I’m a pretty cool dude, the truth is I’m just like you and everyone else:human. Thank you for reading and I encourage you to participate.

  •   kateyork This is wonderful Clint. Thank you. But it backfired...cuz it makes you even cooler than before. 3w
  •   iamchanelle you are actually the coolest. #truestory 3w
  •   iamchanelle also can totally 6246246426% relate 3w
  •   clintwells @kateyork well as long as I'm cool for being honest and not because I occasionally fly on airplanes and plug vintage guitars into vintage amps and sob while playing melodic, 2-note solos. :) and thanks, Kate. You rock. 3w
  •   jenluvsgoodness I spoke to you once at the Saxon, & told you that you were one of my favorite people on Twitter, due to your humor and wit. Now you've gone and done this! Consider your status to have been elevated now to complete human with a heavy case of cool, even though you're not trying. It takes an incredible amount of courage to put that stuff out there into the abyss of social media. You sir, are something special. And you can play guitar like a boss, so that helps. I'm always a little partial to great musicians who seem to be able to remain humble and appreciative to their fans. For all of these reasons- YOU are indeed a fine human and it shows. The friends and ladies of your life are surely lucky! 3w
  •   lovelylavongna I think blushing is endearing and I love what you said before you listed your "flaws". 3w
  •   clintwells @jenluvsgoodness @lovelylavongna thank you to both of you for the kind words! 3w

clintwells Well, folks. Few things are as soul crushing as your alarm clock going off at 3:45am on two hours of sleep. Sometimes finding the will to take that first step out of bed is a pure miracle.
I'm at the airport by the way where I was "randomly selected" to have a very nice, but very thorough, man essentially sexually harass me in front of people. Our only grace was that he hated it more than I did and despite our physical proximity I actually felt close to him in that moment.
Isn't that odd? Anyway, I'm thankful to be headed to NYC where I'm making a record and channeling all of this bizarre human energy into stringed instruments and long nights on that beautiful island drinking and laughing and forgiving and pizza-ing. It's getting better all the time.
