driving through the hills of heredia today, through the curvy roads bordered by fields of the cafetaleros, i noticed the coffee plants are filled with ripe red coffee beans ready for the harvest.
New host, new backend improvements, all set to kick off 2019 with blazing speed and (possibly) new posts.
this is the record that bret, pete, and i did in the late 90s.
i found an old cassette demo that we recorded with current user back in….1992? something like that. i digitized it and threw a little compression on it. the oxide on the tape is a little pitted in some places, so there are dropouts, but it’s cool to listen to this stuff after so many years. no protools, no computers. 8 track tascam 388 mixed to cassette. one of my brother’s wishes was that more of his “superfine bass lines” would be shared more broadly with the world, so this is a good start.
i am tinkering again with wordpress and publishing etc. and so if you are visiting, you may experience some work in progress site changes. man, i am really questioning the wisdom of having echoed my tweets to the site for months. luckily they can probably be filtered and deleted fairly easily.

my mom and i are enjoying a glass of pipa (young coconut) water from the garden this morning. i’m pretty sure this is the first year that the coconut palms that rami and larissa planted have fruited in the 4 or so that i have lived in the house, so this is a very satisfying drink. i sliced the refrigerated coconut open and got a yield of probably 400 ml of seriously refreshing water.
actually, it’s really cold in the south caribbean right now, and raining non-stop, and christmas is upon us. tonight, for christmas eve plan b will be waiting for santa at the most dangerous bar in puerto viejo, tex mex, and tomorrow my mom and i are off to a christmas dinner at geckoes lodge, to join two of the most gracious hosts i know, tom and zoe. last night master key performed at charlie wanger’s puerto viejo multicentro, and brought charlene stewart and imani campbell with them. charlene stewart has an *incredible* voice, and imani is an up and coming star under her tutelage. it was an amazing night, a first for puerto viejo, with big national artists coming down to perform.
anyhow, hope everyone around the world is enjoying the holidays, all the best from the caribbean.
