I can’t believe that Don’t Die came out nearly 4 years ago. I have been working on new songs and writing and recording but sometimes the shit in my life piles up and I can’t quite get everything finished. But I’m finally there, 10 songs recorded and almost ready to go. Still putting the final touches on some vocals, and then it’s off to meet with producer Chris Fudurich (Nada Surf, Jimmy…    read more

A few weeks back c.layne asked me to remix one of his songs off his new album Shark Week. I was really struck by the first song on the album “You Think You’re So Clever” so I figured that would be a good one to rip apart and reconstruct! If you haven’t already heard it, check out his new album, it’s very good. Listen to the original track and the remix below:…    read more 

I just joined the SCCA

Just in case this whole indie rock internet recording artist thing doesn’t work out, I joined the Sports Car Club of America— a baby step towards an illustrious auto racing career. So, no, I don’t really own a race car, yet. But I have big plans. Or, maybe just plans. I got hooked on the whole driving fast thing back in high school, and got just as quickly unhooked when my friend…    read more

My friend Ross sent this to me, he saw it over at the MatrixSynth site. YouTube video is via musica95. A band with a robot guitarist? Pretty cool. A band with a robot drummer? Neato. How about a band with a robot vocalist? That’s pretty amazing. This artist (Maywa Denki) has found a way to create an actual singing robot, consisting of a mechanical bellows and a computer-controlled vocal chord made of…    read more 

Ted Stevens / Sufjan Stevens

I thought it would be cool if Alaska senator Ted Stevens and indie-rocker Sufjan Stevens joined forces to form an action hero team. Since I wasn’t able to actually make this happen, I decided to waste some time and do a few sketches of them both. Luckily my brother turned this into something much cooler. ::: Witness Ted and Sufjan take on Hillary Clintron!

Live and Studio setups

I’ve had a bunch of people ask me what gear I use, so I took a couple photos of what I’m using these days. I invariably switch this up to try new things, so maybe tomorrow this will be outdated. I recently sold a lot of the studio stuff that I wasn’t using much. Sold my G5 and bought a Macbook– I really want a mobile setup so I can do some…    read more 

Brushing up on my nerd skills

April 10, 2007

So I spent the couple days brushing up on my nerd skills, converting my old table-based website into a completely CSS site, learning some PHP and using WordPress to drive the whole thing. I really have avoided learning any new web stuff for the last 5 or so years, so the last two days has been a crash course in stuff I never thought I would care about… mod_rewrite, .htaccess files, php…    read more

If you’re reading this, you probably already know… but i felt like being a total nerd and pimped out my myspace page. it was kind of a pain in the ass.
