So, I'm finally getting back into editing video. I found a great repository of old public domain footage from the 40s and 50s, and it inspired me to create a video for Underground. http://youtu.be/3RvBng_lEXo

Indecent was one of the first songs I recorded for The Man Forgotten, and was the last I finished. I was never 100% happy with it when I was in the middle of making the album, but the result really grew on me (and I've heard from quite a few people that it's their favorite song on the album). Also, the effects chain on the synths killed my old PC.

Google Plus would be a lot more useful if you could easily push updates to it from other services. Just saying.

I wrote Triumph and Sin in December of 2011. It made it, more or less unchanged, onto my fourth album a year and a half later.

I hope the US gets back into the space game sooner, rather than later. It seems silly to pull back our attention now that we're in a position to do more than ever before. Also, kind of sad.
 
India launches Mars Orbiter Mission

The PSLV C25, carrying Mangalyaan or the Mars Orbiter Mission lifted-off from Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR located on Sriharikota Island, Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday afternoon. This is India's first Mars mission, and no country has been fully successful on its first try.

India's Mars satellite, which will collect information about the planet's atmosphere and surface, is expected to enter the Martian orbit on September 24, 2014. Five solar-powered instruments aboard Mangalyaan will gather data to help determine how Martian weather systems work.Mangalyaan will also search Mars for methane, a key chemical in life processes on Earth that could also come from geological processes.

Congrats ISRO team!

Google+ doesn't seem to pull the same metadata as Facebook and Twitter. It's resulting in some very generic snippets from my links. Also, why can't I edit the snippet and title?

I originally wrote 'Holiday' back in 2005 or so for a demo album I called 'Season Red Eye'. I remastered it and put it on the EP that went along with The Shivers. I'm still pretty happy with it - particularly the middle section, where the key changes. http://ianmarquismusic.com/track/holiday-1999

That's certainly one way to go about it.

This track has its roots in a lick I used to play on my friend Seth's acoustic guitar back in college, sitting in his dorm room, watching him play God of War. Ten years have changed it quite a bit.

I've been wanting to redo this old demo track and turn it into something shiny and new for a long time now. Maybe it will make it onto my next album in one form or another.

Story

I make music and pretty things.
Introduction
I like to make music. I have two acoustic guitars, three electric guitars, a bass, a keyboard, a Marshall full stack, and more pedals than I can fit on my floor. When I'm not at my day job, I'm probably rocking. I'm also a writer and a designer, but music is my biggest passion. 
Bragging rights
I just finished my fourth album, Faces From The Static (streaming at http://ianmarquismusic.com/)

LongHorn has two other steakhouses in Bangor to compete with, but it definitely holds its own. The food was great, the atmosphere was quite a bit more subdued than the more sports-bar type places in the area, and the service was great.

I've never had a bad meal at Bugaboo. The decor and birthday moose puppet are pretty tacky, but the food is good, and the service is friendly. The prices are what you'd expect at a steakhouse. I've been several times, and I'm sure I'll be back.

Green Tea, in my opinion, has the best sushi in Bangor. Their menu has a ton of variety (there are some really creative rolls, too), the decor is amazing, and the presentation of the food always surprises me (in a very good way). I've eaten here a half-dozen times and always been very impressed. Whenever anyone asks where to get good sushi or sashimi, I point them to Green Tea.

Margaritas is an Orono staple for a reason: the food is excellent, the drinks are delicious, and the restaurant itself is very well-kept. I've been here quite a few times and never had anything close to a bad meal.

The food was standard, the staff were friendly, and the decor reminded me of a gilded version of my grandmother's living room. I didn't have a BAD experience, but it wasn't anything special, and I probably won't be going back - there are just too many other places to try.

Ichiban isn't in the best location (Union/Third Street is kind of a rundown area), but the food is great. It's a fairly small restaurant, but I've never had to wait long for a table. The sushi is fresh, the variety is decent, and the ambience is nice and reserved.

This is my go-to Chinese buffet in the Bangor area. It's reasonably priced, has a ton of variety (they even have a serviceable sushi counter now), and is always clean when I stop by. Even their bathrooms are nice. I mean, it's a buffet, so it's not five-star food - but it's a good buffet.
