What the F*** is that?!

Night Train (3.8M MP3) Occasionally you come across something really just unexplainable in music. Yes. This is a recording of Night Train at a decent slow tempo. Yes, those are bassoons you hear; and a drum set. The bass instrument might puzzle some people, but it’s just an overdubbed contrabassoon. But the truly dazzling question […]

Spring … Life … again

The winter is slowly losing it’s grip. It doesn’t want to. It keeps fighting hard with rainy and wet days. But we had a taste of summer last week. And it’s warm and sunny again today. The trees are still bare boned. But the grass is green. This winter has been hard. I miss the […]

Smokin’

So there’s been a lot of noise around here recently about the proposed smoking ban in all bars and restaurants in Philadelphia. Not wanting to be outdone, New Jersey is considering a state-wide ban of smoking that some proponents are pushing to include the casinos in Atlantic City.

Vacation.

I’ve been taking a few days vacation to try and combat the winter doldroms and just generally recover. I’ve had a chance to straighten some stuff in the house out and work on improving the situatrion here. Ever since the fire I’ve just kinda been living with hand-me-downs and whatever I could throw together. I’m […]

For those of you who are curious or may have heard the rumors, yup, I’m working with triggur on a really cool project. Ask me about it and I can fill you in if your curious. Or, hopefully in a bit you’ll see details here 🙂

Trippy….

More from the same album of flashback and trippy pain: Music to Watch Space Girls By (2.3 meg MP3) Not bad for something borrowed from a Diet Pepsi commerical.

Happy B’day sephebonblade and tchall! You’re both great folks and I wish you well.
