Still Making Music

And still not blogging.

If you haven’t already discovered Space Vampire, then now’s the time to check out my latest project. That’s what I’m working on almost exclusively at this point.

What I’m Doing These Days

Don’t get around (to blogging) much, anymore…

But that’s because I’m busy with music, mostly. In addition to my work with the lloyd-tones (new songs are in the works for a release sometime this decade) I’ve been playing bass in Pan Pan Pan (Avian Distress Call) Modern Quartet, an avant-garde experimental noise rock thang that’s been gigging around quite a bit and doing some recording to boot.

So please forgive the general silence ’round here. When I’ve got something to say, I promise I’ll say it. In the meantime, you can find me (and the lloyd-tones) on Twitter. Sometimes I’m talkative and sometimes I’m not.

Rio Rita Mixing In Action (Via Vine)

Social Media experiment time! Let’s make Vine videos of bartender extraordinaire Austin mixing up drinks at Rio Rita on a Thursday night. Many more shots were taken, but these are the best.

Watermark Newsletter Archive

In my role as Director of Marketing for Austin-based home remodeler Watermark & Company, I have been responsible for the creation and distribution of a monthly email newsletter, using MailChimp. These links point to the archived version of each month’s issue.

Copywriting. Graphics. Design & Layout. All me. I’m kinda cool.

ZillaSaver Email Archive

In my role as Director of Web Content for (sadly, now defunct) Austin-based daily deals site ZillaSaver, I was responsible for writing web/email copy for each deal, working with the individual merchants to approve that copy and acquire & modify any graphical assets to be used in the deal, and then combining these pieces into a daily deal email sent via MailChimp.

The following links point to the online archives of these deal emails:

I also developed and implemented the layout & design of these emails.

I don’t remember this old video game, but the cabinet art is cool.

So Long, Dave Brubeck

Sad news today. Dave Brubeck has passed away.

Rangers Land Darvish!

Yeah, it’s old news by now (hey! The site was down to protest SOPA/PIPA yesterday), but the Rangers reached an agreement with Yu Darvish. Look out, American League. The reigning champs just got a bit tougher. Which is good, since it’s not like the hated Angels have been quiet this offseason.

Going Dark To Protest PIPA/SOPA Shortly

Howdy.

Yongi.org is going dark shortly to protest the proposed SOPA/PIPA legislation.

If you don’t know what the heck this is all about about, watch this video from Fight For The Future that explains PIPA quite well.

There’s lots more information at Wikipedia, too. Or just enjoy this Downfall redub which is actually quite educational.

You can also view this infographic from Stop American Censorship, which might be a little simplistic, but it covers the key things you need to know.

We’ll be back on Thursday, assuming blogging isn’t illegal by then.

Insulation!

Here’s the latest “renovation tip” video from my employer, Watermark & Company.

That ought to keep you warm over the holidays. Get it? Insulation? Warm? Ha! I kill me!
