Sometimes when you're on the road you need to check in with your peeps.

I hate to say it, really I do, but anybody sitting onstage with Leo Kottke (no matter how fine or masterful a musician they may be) is a redundant presence, and the total overall musical outcome is lesser for it. My apologies to the Mike Gordon fans reading this. Mike and Leo may be having really fun time themselves. But the listening to them both together is a muddy mess. I really want to like it. But I can't.

I pre-ordered mine back on March 20th and still no word. I can hardly wait. I used to have/use Band-in-a-Box software several years ago (back in the '90s). Apparently this is the same (or similar) thing . . . in a box. Great learning tool.

Always love the sound of fretless guitar. Nice rendition of "Summertime." Very hip.

Devastating! That certainly clean my ear canals and scratch a deep aural itch. :-)

A funny thing happens whenever I set out to create a smaller simpler more portable guitar rig. Smaller and simpler for me always seems to be still a bit over the top. My new project is not yet ready to show photos of (it's still a bit of a spaghetti tangle of wires and wall warts) but the thing is this: I am dumbfounded and amazed at how good it sounds.

As a long-time guitar-synth user and fan, I have to say this technology is obviously very impressive, but the sounds in this demo are absolutely awful - the worst.

Terry Bozzio must be drooling to get his hands on this.

Story
Tagline
Just another primate with a computer, delusions of grandeur, and not enough good sense.
Introduction

My "day-job" career has been as a commercial graphic designer. But I have an even greater passion for music. I began playing guitar at the tender age of 10, and had the same general influences as just about anyone else picking up the instrument in the mid-late 60s -- pop radio, the Beatles, Dylan, the Stones, Hendrix -- all of the usual musical touchstones. Be that as it may, something went rather wrong along the way. My brain is wired just a little bit differently. The same could be said for my other aesthetic sensibilities. As a painter, designer, writer, filmmaker -- all things I've tried my hand at -- I'm just a little bit too warped for my own good...but probably not truly warped enough (or cynical enough) to be commercially successful. But some folks find it interesting enough to seek out and listen to. Some have even seen fit to broadcast it on the radio in countries as far flung as Lithuania and Australia (and a considerable number of places between).

Buffets generally don't have the best food in the world anyway - tending toward middle-of -the-road "meh" in quality and flavor - so, it was very surprising to me to find this place with such a good variety and great flavor. Medford doesn't have many decent, high-quality Asian restaurants. They're really all pretty doggone bland here. But this place rates at least 4 stars. Great food and pretty okay service. If you want a truly five star meal, you aren't likely to get one in Medford anyway.
