So, The Album Is Finished

Dear Reader, So, it’s finally over. It seems strange to report, but after much apprehension/fear/excitement/sleepless nights/testing/listening/recording/ re-recording/listening/and far too much coffee, I can report to you that my debut album Dreams has been recorded, mixed, mastered, and is now finished. There were times when I honestly wasn’t sure if this would ever be completed. The… Continue Reading

Say That Again? Or, The Continuing Adventures of Sick Boy

Dear Reader, So it turns out it wasn’t just shower water in my ears. After not being able to hear properly for a few days, I went to the doctor and it turns out that, on top of mono, I now have an ear infection in both ears. The fluid from the infection means that… Continue Reading

Final Post: New Album, New Places, and A Big, Big Thank You!

(Trying To) Fly with the Twitter Birds: What Do You Tweet About?

Dear Reader, So, back in the stone ages (meaning January 2013), I got an account on Twitter. At the time, it was more of an experiment. I was an avid reader of Joyce Carol Oates and Steve Martin (among other twitter users) and I liked the challenge of trying to write interesting and thought-provoking material… Continue Reading

Dear Reader/Guest Bloggers, I just want to take a moment to thank all of the guest bloggers that I’ve had on this site for the last month. When I put out a call for guest posts, I wasn’t sure how many responses I would get. I was thrilled to see that there were so many… Continue Reading

Guest Post: Cleverness Powers The Frugality Train by Iridius Izzarne

Dear Reader, As promised, here is the guest post from my housemate Iridius about how he made that microphone stand, among other things. It’s been said that necessity is the mother of invention. It’s my belief that many other forces drive invention beyond necessity. One of them is profit. But another is lack of and/or… Continue Reading
