Here it is folks. Episode 6 of Filling the Page. I take a martini bath and talk to my fiancé, Jennifer, about me, oh, and about her too. My first interview experience, her first recording experience. Yes a night of firsts. Parental guidence is *highly* suggested. Gripes include telephones and kerosene fire dances.

This is King. He twenty pounds of feline. King has been living with us, along with his compadre, Peanut for nearly a year now. He and Peanut will be moving out on Friday. I was reticent when they moved in, but now I'm sad to see both of them go. But, their affection is needed elsewhere - and we're not really lacking in the animal departement, anyway.
Recording the PodCast tonight, or at least a portion of it. You can look for it later in the week.
I continue to pull tunes out of my...hat left and write. I've put off the novel-rino for the past couple weeks, as I did accomplish my initial goal of polishing up the first three chapters for submission. But, I've been hit with the bat of inspiration from Mur's PodCast and the Tee Morris interview on the DeadPan.
I'm going to try to find time to polish another couple chapters.
Off to NYC this weekend with the Bad Habit. Whee!

Thanks Jeremy and Andrea for starting....something.
It's been an interesting week thus far. After getting back from a great weekend trip to CT to visit the ol' fam, I decided to make Tuesday a night full of making electronic music. As it turns out, Windows XP decided to burn my night away in napalm blast of frustration. I should've just picked up the guitar at the first "unable to switch device, please install pointlessfile.INF", shunning technology all together. But I didn't. I confess, I fell into this classic WinSuck trap and spent several hours trying to figure out why Reason (a kick ass soft-synth program of sorts) thought my computer was an idiot.
I couldn't sleep later that night, even dosed on sleep-aids. The fact that I couldn't make the computer work was driving me crazy. I got out of bed around 1:00am, discovered a temporary fix and worked up a few cool loops. Considering I was on an over-the-counter sleep aid, I'm sure said loops mostly consist of fart noises and water-fowl mating calls.
Last night, I managed to get away from the city lights for a little stargazing. It was needed. I feel a lot more relaxed today. Thanks for asking. I'll be posting in detail about that in my other, other, other blog. Prophets practice tonight. We'll be working on some new tunes. Habit practice this weekend in prep for the NYC debauchery that is fast approaching. Details on that show to come. I also have a PodCast to deliver this coming monday. Feed back was great for the last one. I think you people are afraid of the telephone. Please call in, lest I resort to: "So in so from here and there wrote me to say, nice podcast." or "So in so from here and there wrote me to say, you have beautiful eyes." Or "So in so from here and there said, meet me behind the super Target in Sterling - wear comfortable shoes."
As for now, it's time for my run. Be sexy.

AAs I said in the previous post, I've been working on *a lot* of new music. I decided to demo one of the songs so that you nice people could hear what starting from scratch is all about. A mildly inebriated me recorded a really cheese ball intro. I was wearing my smoking jacket. Huzzah!
Hope you enjoy it:

Hi kiddies. I had an extremely productive weekend, cranking out several new songs. It's been a while since I wrote a song I felt really good about. To come up with a few felt pretty damn good. I also spent a little time tinkering with some recent photographs (see above). This is the off week for the 'cast, but I'm planning on demoing one of these new tunes and throwing it up there.
Big Pharmacy Prophets show at Iota this Saturday. More info to come.
