happy halloween!

Happy halloween! I can't believe that it's October 31st. Crazy how time can just disappear. To all my NanoWrimo involved listeners - good luck. I'm still deciding on how I will use the NanoWrimo fervor for my own nefarious purposes. As I've stated before, I'm not participating directly. I do feel that November is a good month for crazy goal setting. I may focus the month on cranking out a stack of short fiction, while I continue to work on Crescent and the Thread Garden.

Then again - I might just commit to finishing one of the above mentioned books.

Or a combination. We'll see ;-) In other news, I'll hopefully be finishing up a brand-spankin'-new track this week. Zach is coming over tomorrow to hit things on microphone.

Happy Halloween.

Be safe. Be magnificent.

episode 13 complete - and I want to set blogger on fire!

There must have been an upload error. Only half of episode 13 made it onto the server. Trying this again from Cape Cod folks before the devestating winds set in. Thanks for the patience!

episode 13: trip the light spooktastic - part 2

This show concludes the halloween fun. Thanks go out to my contributors. :)

Karen from Kalifornia - mastermind behind the Bunkcast (and yes Karen, you totally freaked me out).
Tee Morris - we shared ancient beers during his telling. There is a *wee* technical fumble at the start of the segment, but in interest of not sitting around for thirty-minutes of bounce-to-disk, we're gonna roll with it. (Mur said I should "stand strong")
Adam from NYC - his wit is cunning, his voice is of the velvet.

Potbelly concludes.

Technology is great when it works

The server that hosts philrossimusic.com and the earlier episodes of Filling the Page is down - and I can't determine why. I'm waiting to hear back from the keeper of the magical whirring box of sound and light. I knew I should have migrated the old episodes to the new server. So, why didn't I? I was lazy.

Many, many apologies if you're trying to get the old episodes. I'm working on it :)

Update - the blog feed will be going down at 2:00pm PST. The folks at blogga-blogga need to replace some vittles. What the hell is going on in my digital world today? Yowsa. I'm working on moving the feed to fillingthepage.com but the nice people at ftp.com's current registrar are making the domain tranfer more-or-less a living nightmare. :) Anyway, the outage will only run 60 to 90 minutes.

cha cha cha

Filling the Page Episode 13 is on its way. I had planned on finishing it up tonight, but the writing fever had been running hot. After cranking out 3,000+ words today (spread between the two projects), I'm inclined to sit on the couch, drink some wine, and watch some Lost.

The show will be posted before tomorrow is out. To hold you over, below find a picture of a little green frog I met last weekend. No, I didn't lick him. I didn't think of it at the time.

Oh. I've named the untitled book. I'm not saying that I won't change the name down the line, but for now, I dig it.

episode 12: trip the light spooktastic - part 1

We get our ghost on this week. Tales of Dudleytown (entrance road pictured above), one of the most hautned spots on the East Coast. Zach calls into the show and recounts a story of New England small town horror. And bowling.

Also in this episode, the premiere of my new short story, Pot Belly. Part one this week, part two next week (yes, I said next week. Two weeks of FTP - sweet.)

I received a few more audio submissions today. Please allow me to say, you all rock. They'll be in next week's show.

PubCast on Wingin' It

There' s a new PubCast on Michael and Evo's Wingin' It Episode 81. What's a PubCast? Each month Tee Morris and I venture off to a different pub/bar in search of delicious microbrews. Why? Because beer is good.

be part of the action

Would you like to be heard in the FTP Halloween two part series of glory and awesomeness? Call into the voicemail line with a scary story (that happened to you). Things went bump in the night? So scared you almost...well, you don't have to share that story in particular - but you get the drift.

I won't say it, but you know what day it is...

I woke up at 4:00 am today. Believe me when I say it was not of my own volition. My brain turned on and that was it. I was thinking novels, podcasts, short stories, breakfast, coffee, commuting to work, the weekend, the drop in temperature.... you get the picture. I gave up on falling back to sleep and got up around quarter-to-five. My fingers haven't been working that well this morning. Goes without saying. So, I mistakenly added an 's' to google and and a few short seconds later I felt like I was tripping. This web site is the last place you should go when on zero sleep. Googltopia. Home of the Googles from Goo. From this point forward, I'll be haunted. (pictured above).

Oh and 'googles' is apparently slang for boobies. (Trust me).

The Phil Rossi Experience web site has had a URL reduction. Its googles were causing undue problems. It can still be reached at it's original URL, but also as www.philrossi.net .

In other news - I'm slowing beginning to repopulate my link section.

And one last thing - Any artists out there want to do some pro bono work? I'm looking for sketch work on a recurring basis. Darkly sci-fi type stuff. Shoot me a line at philrossimusic@gmail.com if you've got any interest or know anyone that might.

Radiations Kings Reunion Show

Many, many, many years ago I played horn in a band called the Radiations Kings (I'm pictured above being supremely bad ass). There is a little reunion show planned for December 2nd at the Knitting Factory in NYC. I've been listening to the music today and feeling nostalgic. We had some really good and strange times.

In other news - I'm back at the keyboard plugging away on the untitled masterpiece and Crescent. I also feeling like I'm coming down with a cold or some other seasonal change malady. Chalk it up to burning the candle at both ends. I'm cheerful as can be, though.

I'm contemplating a move to WordPress as it seems to be more PodCaster friendly than blogger. We'll see.

episode 10: the place is here the time is now

Welcome to Episode 10! I'm dashing off to Roanoke for a wedding in about five minutes, so the show notes are scimpy. I get informative on this episode and broach the subject of writing/being creative with limited time and preparing a press kit to become a human juke box.

I haven't listened to the entire file, so if anything strange happens,I don't want to know about it. ;-) Ignorance is bliss.
