From the wiki: "In many regions, the day ... became simply an occasion for men to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day." Uh... OK! :)
Director Karen Lin and I will be on the TV show "Visual Crunch" next week discussing how we made our music video. She'll be talking about the challenges of making a music video with me. j/k She'll be talking about the challenges of making a music video. I'll be talking about... I forgot. But I'm sure it involved what I was thinking wh...Read more
...starting next month. New elements in my set will include back-up vocalists and my beat-up old laptop (trying to make sure it plays nice oughta be an adventure :). Alhambra, downtown L.A. and more. Stay tuned...
It's a little different from some of my other songs. I don't expect everyone to like it. shrug Anyway, here it is anyway for those who may be curious as to what I'm working on. p.s. I'm gonna stop calling them "demos" as it's pretty clear to me that they're like 75% of what the final versions are probably going to be...
I love Apple, but these iPod earbuds just constantly slay me. And not in a good way. Mixing a song with monitors or over-the-ear studio headphones and then listening back to the same mix with iPod earbuds is like watching Avatar with one eye open. And without 3D glasses. These cute little white buds may as well be marshmallows when I stick them in my ears, that's how bad my mixes sound in them.Come on, iPod earbuds. Don't go breakin' my heart.
Finally finishing up the third song of... what appears to be my next album in the making(?) (fourth album of indie pop music), and it's been pretty much a b!tch.

I forgot to put this up here, but I'd actually finished another song after "Outsider", a while back, called "Ghosts In The Courtyard." Again, not totally finished, more like a 75% version.

Apologies for being M.I.A... finally been able to get some new music recorded. Technically still in "demo" stage, since it's not finished. But it's pretty close. Hope to start playing out again soon...
I tried to put the new song on my player at the right. Tried being the operative word. :)
started writing music again... feels amazing.
Due to medical reasons. Apologies to everyone who was planning on attending... Hope to be back soon.S
