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 […]

So Long, Dave Brubeck

Sad news today. Dave Brubeck has passed away.

Christmas Lights Ahoy!

I finally got off my butt and put up the crimmis lights. Now it’s time to crack a beer, sit back and watch ’em blink, and listen to a classic…

L Is For the lloyd-tones

After quite a number of years of playing bass in a rock & roll band in Austin, I quit making music for a while. The last breakup of the band (there were many along the way – we burned through guitarists the way Spinal Tap burned through drummers) was rough. Very rough. Divoice-like in its […]

J Is For Jetking

At The SXSW Guitar Show

The SXSW Guitar Show was pretty uninspiring – sure, there were a few vintage Teiscos mixed in with a trite & tiring surfeit of old strats and teles – but one booth in particular caught my eye. Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you… Worlatrons! See, although I will always be a sucker for the pure […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Don’t drink any green beer, damnit. That means it’s been poisoned. Drink Guinness instead.

Script Frenzy

Yongi’s Office. Interior. Day. Just outside the room two parrots – ZOE and LEO – angrily complain that their breakfast hasn’t been served yet. YONGI is typing a blog post after having seen something interesting to him on the internet. Script Frenzy:Scriptwriters::NaNoWriMo:Novelists Where “Scriptwriter” covers a pretty broad swath of scribes. I don’t generally go […]

SciFi Book Covers

Odds are you’ve seen these before, but just in case you haven’t (and so I have them saved somewhere) here are two great sites that show off some great SciFi book covers: The Art of Penguin Science Fiction Skiffy There’s some overlap, at least when it comes to Penguin books. But both sites are enjoyable […]
