T minus one. April 1st, 2015; Posted in shows; Write comment. One day to nwcMUSIC 2015 and Norwescon 38. As part of the big show, Anna and I are both offering discount on our arts, and I've been making miniflyers and stuff.
Aw, a nice little review of Bone Walker by Jason Burnett at his blog, Mr. B's Second Breakfast. I've never been compared to SJ Tucker or Blackmore's Night before, which is certainly a yikes! moment in an extremely good way. :D
I WANT THIS LAIR. Of any extant building I've seen actually, you know, extant? I WANT THIS ONE. Seriously, it's 50% the Venture Compound as built 10 years later, it's 50% Fortress of Solitude, it's 50% the Star Trek original-series set they could never hope to afford to build – it is a spaceship ...
George normally ignores my music – he's not fond of drums and will leave if I start to play those, but everything else just kind of washes off. Or that's been the case until now. I started fiddling with the animoog using voices I'd chosen for the Leannan Sidhe show, and he hopped right up and ...
Anna had this video by Vi Hart dropped in as a comment on one of her Facebook posts, and it's really cool. It's called What is up with Noises? (The Science and Mathematics of Sound, Frequency, and Pitch) and she's talking about brains and harmonics and how sound is processed.
I had a really good time at the one day I got to go to Emerald City Comicon this year, for a lot of reasons, but in no small part because I was going as Earth Kingdom Korra, which is a fourth-year two-episode costume associated with the “Korra Alone” mini-arc where she's going around in Earth ...
I got given a couple of terrible, terrible looking- and sounding- speakers, and a pretty good power amp that has been in storage for a while, as a set. I haven't started working on the amp yet, but it's supposedly actually just fine. Yay! But these speakers, goddamn. I mean look at this.
March 20th, 2015; Posted in random coolness; Write comment. I just repaired a 20-year-old landline phone with 40-year-old components. Why? Because I can, and because my late parrot Zoe (YES SHE IS AN EX-PARROT YOU CAN STOP NOW) is still on the outgoing message recording.
this show just got more complicated. March 18th, 2015; Posted in shows; Write comment. I'm playing with Leannan Sidhe at nwcMUSIC – the show is Friday evening, with that block. It'll be livestreamed! Anyway, she has a couple of new songs, and I guess the band has joined 1972 by way of 2010?
Yet another hideout for CRIME and the Forces of Evil, superheroes turned supervillains turned musicians! We specialise in rage-driven acoustic elfmetal originals, and traditional songs of piracy, riot, and revolution! We also have two web albums and a full studio CD, and are often on tour.
