two major announcements: bone walker and cracksman...
So many awesome things are going on right now that I have to combine announcements! It’s crazytalk. But before I get to that, even, a quick reminder: I’m guesting tonight on The House of Julie with Julie Cascioppo, 7:30pm, in Seattle, with several other musicians including Roo Forrest, Elaine Bono, Jean Mann, and Bill White. I’m Julie’s first guest of the night; come see the show! TO THE...
Two big announcements tomorrow. One's already up,... →
video editing →
Honestly, editing takes forever. It doesn’t help that iMovie apparently chokes on videos over an hour long. At least, with the number of clips I have and an external drive.
other people have music
Other people have music! I knew this was possible. Leannan Sidhe have added an incentive – whoever gets them to four digits on their recording Kickstarter gets album art design sketch prints. Cool stuff nobody else gets is awesome, and it’s just whoever gets them to $1000, no specific amount required. As I’m writing this, they aren’t far off from that level, so check it – it might still be...
LoK: bolin [bending style analysis] →
ladykorra: re: bolin’s bending style okay so a lot of people are saying that everyone who thinks bolin is a bad bender are picking on him and he’s only bent in two episodes to which i say yeah OKAY look at that shit that’s totally probending style. small bricks of earth, keeping flexible, mainly on… This is a good analysis of bending technique as character exposition.

Oh guys seriously I did not think Cracksman Betty could sound this good. Not what’s online now; the re-engineered/re-mastered version that’s in progress. It’s always going to be a bit of a jumble as an album, having been originally just a place to put all my trad-o’-the-week/fortnight/month songs, but it’s so much better a jumble than I ever thought it would or even...
oh god oh god oh god
me: All scientists are hipsters, that's why they wear glasses.
me: "I stopped working on electromagnetic induction. It was too current."
me: "I used to have a passion for oceanography but I got sick of talking about the mainstream."
me: "Of course I'm not a mathematician. Calculus-based models of the universe are SO derivative."
me: "I'm an expert on geothermal vents--"
husband: Oh my God.
me: "--They're probably too deep for you."

Check out this fantasy novel project on Kickstarter! Anna’s publisher folded, so she wants to reissue the first book in her Warder series with new art and layout and such, and issue the sequel Drollerie wanted to print but didn’t before shutting down. Share this around, if you would. She got almost a third there in the first 24 hours, but it still takes a lot to bring in artists and...
11 tracks down, 1 to record →
Eleven Cracksman Betty tracks re-engineered! One new one to record (surprise!), then a rough semi-mastering pass, then I’ll upload the whole new set. Mostly I’m trying not to re-record, but I am replacing a lot of vocals - I’m a much better vocalist than I was when I started that project, no lie. And there’ll be a bonus track (S-100 Bus) on the website only, because...

i gotta say something here →
So I’ve been working on re-engineering Cracksman Betty this last week. I’ve learned a lot over the last year, I gotta tell you, and that’s awesome. That web album – a collection of live-in-studio and live-at-shows tracks – will sound a lot better when I’m finished. Particularly the live-in-studio. But then I went and listened to a bunch of little indie band recordings tonight for various reasons,...
