I Work For Free…..Sometimes

The new school year has kicked into high gear and I am loving my new job as a media arts/creative writing teacher. It has however left me extremely busy and tired. I am getting behind on my editing, writing, reading, talking to friends, knowing what the hell is going on in the world. So basically, […]

You Are Not So Strange

Sheri and I went down to San Francisco this weekend to see Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman entertain us for a few hours on a stage. It was a gloriously strange combination of music and spoken word. The art of music commingling on a stage with the art of fiction. You can also throw in […]

Hey, Corporate Drone Music Executive – Take My Money Please

I buy a lot of music. This new carpet thing has driven that home because I still have hundreds and hundreds of compact discs that do nothing but gather dust. Why are they gathering dust? The answer is easy I don’t listen to compact discs. I only have these discs to keep myself legal. I […]

I think cats in heat have more musical talent than Bon Jovi. I admit there has been an occasional song that didn’t make […]

2010 Best of Music List

At long last my best music of the year list. It took me forever to get it done (I say this as if there were tons of people just dying to read it). I was about half way through it when this past weekend’s sadness stopped me cold. I have done this list two years […]

The Dresden Dolls: A Love Story

I came to the Dresden Dolls party a little late. They were still a band and touring. I didn’t know that tour was going to be their last major one as a band. I was sucked into their music completely. Even more amazingly, so was my wife (who never ceases to surprise me with what […]

Kim Boekbinder Magical Lyricist

I have been thinking about how to put these words into the world for days. Everyday I start to put them down on the page. I feel my hands go through the rhythm of typing. My fingers pushing the keys but without fail my words have left me wanting. I can’t seem to express the […]

Marian Call Shares Her Art

It is hard for me to explain the emotions I am feeling right now. There are a lot of things in this world which send my thought process spinning off into an orbit of pain and dread. I want to believe somehow, someway, humanity will pull its collective head out of its collective ass and […]
