When we last spoke to John Morgan Kimock, the drummer was gearing up to debut his exciting new project JMMY. Though Kimock is part of a number of bands, including that of Mike Gordon and K I M O C K, a project with his father Steve Kimock, JMMY is something totally unique. “JMMY is like an incubator for me to re-establish some of my core musicality that I feel like I didn’t get to work on as much as I would have liked to in the past.”After sharing the debut JMMY track “Low Lands” earlier this year, the collaboration between Kimock and Alex Luquet is pushing forward with a brand new music video. Titled “Telephone,” the new song and video takes a look at our generation’s obsession with phones. “The video came about with my bud Jason Gallagher just hearing the track, and putting it together with a library of telephone related footage that he had been collecting. He has a good eye for these types of audio/visual connections,” said Kimock.“I sort of see hints of the whole telephone addiction in there, which is starting to bubble up as an actual thing in today’s society.”We’re excited to premiere the new video! Produced by Todd Shied and directed by Jason Gallagher, watch “Telephone” streaming below.Kimock is keeping busy throughout the remainder of 2016, playing shows with all of his projects at different times. JMMY kicks off a run of shows throughout the Northeast this week, and the band will be joined by Justin Mazer (American Babies) for every show of the run! The drummer will also be touring with Mike Gordon and K I M O C K throughout October and November. Check out the full tour schedule below!JMMY DatesOctober 5 – Bishops Lounge Northampton MA w.

Gallery (11 images)Inside the spacious living area of the property.Agent Barbara Wolveridge declined to comment on the final price or the identity of the buyers, but says she received very broad interest in the two-bedroom property before it finally sold on the weekend.The 530sqm home at 20 Island Point Road was built high in the Port Douglas hills for Sydney industrialist Peter Graham and his wife Claire in 2014.Constructed entirely from concrete, the home features a 10-metre infinity lap pool, a balcony with a built-in granite day bed and alfresco dining area with a built-in granite dining table and chairs.The state-of-the-art kitchen features a large oven with a triple exhaust fan, a wine fridge and a butler’s pantry.The barbeque area has its own wine fridge.The home has won numerous architectural accolades, including the Eddie Oribin Award for Building of the Year given by the Australian Institute of Architects in 2015.Is this the ultimate beach house?More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home3 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor9 hours agoWolveridge says all rooms in the house have views of the water, from Port Douglas’ famous Four Mile Beach to Mossman Gorge. “Everyone knows the house because it’s on the lookout. It is an iconic house in the region and will stay so,” she says.“First of all the view is extraordinary. Secondly, the house is one of the most fabulous houses I’ve ever seen. Yes, there were many interested buyers but the fact that it was only two bedrooms was a bit of a sticking point, which is why it stayed on the market longer.”Another property designed by Charles Wright, Alkira, has lingered on the market since 2014.
It is always nice when a coach’s former athlete stops by for an unexpected visit. This has happened twice in the last week for me. While I was at track practice Pete Schmidt (now living in Mishawaka, Indiana) stopped by. Pete was a track and cross country runner at Batesville High School in the 70’s. Pete held the 800 meter and 200 meter record at Batesville until a couple of years ago.A few days later, Dan Weisenbach (now living in Carmel, Indiana) stopped by the house. Dan was also a track and cross country runner from the same era as Pete. Dan, at one time, held the 400 meter record at Batesville. This record has been broken several times since. Dan is now a financial advisor and has a part-time office in Oldenburg.It was a lot of fun talking with both of them. It is nice for any coach to see the young men/women they have coached become successful adults with families of their own. Thank you Dan and Pete for stopping by!
