i was playing around with the upgraded logic tonight and started a tune. i told myself that i was ONLY going to use loops for a change, as an experiment in composing, but before i knew it i was knee deep in cables, guitars, keyboards, and microphones. i went to see the documentary about haskell […]
i finished some stuff i was working on this afternoon and decided i would try strumming something for the cam. i heard this radiohead song on the radio when i was in LA last week, and i remembered listening to it and getting all misty on at least one occasion years ago, so i thought […]
it looked like it was going to be a beautiful day on the water when phil and i left my apartment. by the time we reached the marina about eight minutes later, a different story was unfolding. the fog was pushing in fast, wind was high, and the swellls looked formidable. so instead, i shot […]
yesterday phil kin and i decided that, having successfully reached hump day, we should spend the afternoon sailing (vid). we tied up at angel island and had sandwiches, then cruised over to tiburon and tied up there and had coffee. we were going to have a drink at sam’s on their deck looking over the […]

finally got out on the water today with mj, chris, and glenda. it was an awesome day and many photos were taken and i shot a video.
yeah, that word is lame. but i went down to emeryville this afternoon and bought a sony dv cam. i think this may give me someplace to put songs while i am working on them: in the soundtracks of my video. i put this one up on ourmedia, but it doesn’t seem to be live […]
joi and i were IMing today, he’s been messing around in garageband, and we decided to make a track together. we were talking about how to go about it, and i said “why don’t you start the car, and i’ll jump in,” something i heard bob dylan say to tom petty on a tape of […]
click here to hear another rough mix coming out of the workshop over here in berkeley. still very rough, but i’m kicking it out the door for now. the lead vocal is a quick pass. i just wanted to get it recorded and live with it a while. two nights ago i was im’ing late […]
