I appeared on 4 musical recordings released in 2022! That's pretty good although I only had to mix and promote one of them. This was a quality-over-quantity year, which in reality means lots of contributing to the musical vision of others (who will in turn have others mix the stuff! Division of labor FTW). Here's a … Continue reading 2022 in Review: Music by We

2022 IN REVIEW: BOOKS!
I tried hard to read a bunch of books in 2022. These were the best ones, no particular order. Most are older than 2022 of course. Parable of the Sower, Parable of the Talents - Octavia E. Butler - two parts of the same story written in the 1990s about a future in the 2020s. … Continue reading 2022 IN REVIEW: BOOKS!

New Music I Loved in 2020, Abridged
I listen to music when I’m exercising, driving, working my day job, cooking, reading, eating, cleaning, dancing for my cats, and even sometimes when I’m working on other music (that last one doesn’t always work out so good). Given the relative lack of other sources of novelty since March, I consumed a disgusting amount of … Continue reading New Music I Loved in 2020, Abridged
Je Ne Regrette Rien – MUSIC COMPLETED BY ME IN 2020.

Daytime Drama Themes My first release of the year in January is a freaky jazz/prog album built on … Continue reading Je Ne Regrette Rien – MUSIC COMPLETED BY ME IN 2020.
Happy New-ish Year
2019 was all about revisiting, re-assessing, and re-booting. After Opposite Day basically lost inertia in May, I decided to take a break from fronting and promoting a band, and just go with the flow a bit and take the good opportunities that came my way. This included fun and satisfying gigs and/or recording with Dream … Continue reading Happy New-ish Year
