Miss You

Dear blog, 

I'm sorry I abandoned you. I didn't mean to. I just got really busy this year. I took a lot of jobs (running lights and building sets for little theaters in the city), I've have been touring a lot with my new band, Sound of Ceres, and working a whole lot on my puppet series, The Creatures of Yes. But I want you to know I haven't forgotten you. I can't believe I haven't posted since January! I guess these things ebb and flow. Maybe it will start flowing again sometime soon.

I am working on a new Cascading Slopes album. I've been working on it for about four years now.... I think - since the last one came out anyway. And it's album finished. I'm pretty excited about it. I'll post more about it here soon.

Seeing the already broken video in the post below this one made me want to repost a video that had also gone dead from an old post. One of my favorite videos of all time. Isao Tomita's When you wish upon a Star.

Nadia's Theme 1973


Is it possible this is my favorite song of all time? I just keep coming back to it. Someone recently asked me what my all-time favorite song was and I said I thought it might be Life in Mono by Mono. But... I think this song is maybe the origin of why I love Life in Mono.

Dolores O'Riordan


I don't even know what to say about her passing. She's meant so much to me for a long time. I remember I used to listen to this song over and over again when I was 16 and just stare at the ceiling.

Behringer VC340


Wow! Roland has been tiptoeing towards something for the past couple years and Behringer just ran past them.
