As I mention in yesterday’s post, Script Number Two of Six in 2006 is done. I print it up on Sunday, which is a good four weeks later than I’d palnned. But sickness, New Mexico and Coachella all conspire to make me late. And Script Number Three is already twenty pages towards its eventual immortalization […]
In the time I’ve been gone (almost a week now) I’ve gotten mostly better. The steamboats are gone. The noise in my head has calmed down. In the time I’ve been gone I completed the first draft of ELEMENT. That’s Number Two in the Six in 2006 plan. And I haven’t slowed yet. I just […]
I roll up in bed and lean over the side, feet on the floor. There’s a steamboat in my head. That’s right, a rattling, howling dragon of a steamboat. It’s one of those big, side-wheeled monsters that prowled the Mississippi in the 1800’s. The giant paddle-wheels churn muddy, greasy river water. The decks creak, wood […]
Taking a brief break from work here at Argentum, I lean back in my chair and clos my eyes. When I open them again I’m struck by the amount of jumble on my typical desktop. Click the thumbnail for full-sized mayhem.
I’d been meaning to do this for about a year and a half. Today is Day Eight. Here’s a quick recap: DAY ONE I stock up on maple syrup, organic lemons and cayenne pepper. This is all I will be consuming for the next fourteen days. I’d been meaning to tackle the Master Cleanse for […]

Tomorrow marks the 52nd near-consecutive week he’s DJ’d the Wednesday night gig. What The DJ Wants. That means no requests. Just […]
I’m back from Yosemite. My skin is a little browner, my legs a little sore. I’m posting some pics to Flickr as I write this. In the meantime, perhaps you didn’t notice that at last we are caught up on the music reviews offered monthly by wandering minstrel, tune addict and discerning critic, Michael Keefe. […]
As is often the case with me, I decide it’d be nice to go on a vacation, then in order to do so, I have to work extra hours and scramble to get shifts covered and run around like a maniac to make sure everything’s tied down, finished up and otherwise handled, so when the […]
The other day I get my greedy little hands on a copy of the remastered, re-issued edition of Tales From Topographic Oceans by Yes. I’ve never heard it so clear and clean and gorgeous. It’s been lovingly repackaged with some nifty liner notes and a fine wraparound sleeve of Roger Dean’s famous artwork. Rhino, the […]
