Please excuse the rough recording, it was at a random practice at Amanda’s house. Ended up being one of the only recordings left after I deleted most of our stuff when the band fell apart. I wish I didn’t do that. “The Terrorists” was a rock/punk/alternative band I was a part of with Travis and […]

Rehash You think you’re so suave Making new on the old Different gen, different gen Press play for your memories again Die Go away forever I don’t need your direction Fly Taste the shitty weather Rehash it all again I see your loop But I’m in debt to your coop I want to move with […]
I feel like listening to independently created music would be much better if it was performed live. Listening to recorded and mixed tracks with rough and raw vocals/instrumentation gives me an uncomfortable feeling. It’s not the artists’ fault, they’re trying to present themselves as well as possible. The thing is, when I hear heavily mixed/mastered […]
Microsoft wants to control the way people do business. Control. They want control.
Having been researching different open source types of clustering + virtualization + cloud platform technologies (IPVS/LVS, Proxmox, corosync+pacemaker, and at the moment openstack). I feel it is a probability that, based on peoples’ ability to advance this kind of thing at such a rapid rate, that we’re all living in a simulation (virtualized environment/reality). Think […]
This entire sequence was done on a Commodore 64 computer in 2014. It’s absolutely amazing to see hackers push the limits of such old technology, and with this kind of style.
If the verbal attacks are entirely personal, why can the physical attacks also not be personal (as in, directed at the person and not at the innocent people of the nation they “lead”)? I remember wondering as a child, if two leaders of nations disagree, why can’t they just play a game of chess, and […]
Livestreaming platforms are all the same. Why do there have to be 5 different apps/platforms (Periscope, live.me, Stre.am, YouNow, UStream, I could name more) that all feature people doing nothing?
Reality Is a drug I am addicted Analog frequency I hear its nuance I can tell it from the digital Pre-existence Got too close and gravity pulled me in Locomotion brought me the distance My body Is a vessel With a locked captain’s door I can rise above I can pretend I am swimming in […]
Picture by Caitlin Cronenberg, interview by Allyson Shiffman – Full interview here “We’re a bunch of ideas cobbled together to look like a form. There’s a body and there’s a mind, but the body is part of the field of consciousness, just dancing for itself and it’s no different than a plant or a chair […]
What I want to be Is like grasping at straws Can’t get enough, enough I want to emulate Pedestal soaring above my head A monolith, a twin tower All I want is to endow her I am not fed from your plate I want to emulate Emulate What I need to be Contains all of […]
Glad I’m not the only one who feels this way =p
Here’s another track that Post_Dwell and I worked on together. I’m really happy with how this one turned out considering it’s a really rough cut (for the bass track anyway). I feel like I’ve taken a lot of lessons and techniques I’ve learned over the years and put them into practice on this one. Hope […]
We bought an Ultraviolet Sterilization filter on eBay for our Spring Water. So now our refrigerator water comes from 5 gallon bottles of fresh spring water (usually from Rattlesnake Spring, bottled by yours truly) -> “Flojet BW5000” pump (to provide water pressure to fridge) -> “Crystal Quest Ultraviolet Water Sterilizer-1”. Not thinking we need any […]
My head is red As a buoy the newsman said Infiltrate, it’s Psychological warfare, it’s Blanketing the world, it’s Drowning me Try to steer this ship I’m sick of all this shit I’m overboard Save myself from what I feel Try to ignore a bit Emit all of my wit Guide me to the shore
Found this guy on Reddit (I love Reddit) /r/MusicInTheMaking and decided to take a stab at a bass part for it. Feels really good to have *something* to work on with someone. I think I played for about 2 hours. Happy.
I remember my alternative name for this was, “International STFU Day” =p~
Does anyone really need instructions these days on leaving a voicemail? “Please leave a message after the tone. When you are done, hang up or dial # for more options. Press # to send a fax.” Seriously? Can I just have an option for a BEEP after the last ring finishes? Or, at the least, […]
This is amazing. It reminds me of when my mom used to play this song on the piano – so somber and with so much depth.
Sometimes (lately especially) I’ll wake up with a song stuck in my head. It isn’t necessarily a song I’ve listened to recently. Tonight I fell asleep briefly and woke up to a Deftones song stuck in my head. I don’t know how long it’s been (months at least) since I heard the song. But earlier […]
Open your third eye, And cry for the first time, Feel the wonder unwind and medicate your mind, Walk bare feet on the grass, breathe each breath, as if it were your last Look to the future, step with the past, only way you miss it is by walking too fast. Two eyes for lookin’ […]
I’d like to see Google Glass in a form factor that causes it to be nearly invisible. The big hit to Glass was that it was obvious what it was and what its capabilities were. Google didn’t impress me in the “obviously you’re being recorded, look at this thing on my head” department. All of […]
“Look forward to the next day, as if he had to spend centuries…and then he lives hopefully. But when he is afraid, when he doesn’t look forward, he looks back, it petrifies him. He gets stiff, and he dies before his time. But when he’s living on, looking forward to the great adventure that is […]
I must remember this.
