Another Birthday

Thank you all for the recent birthday wishes – it’s appreciated. It’s a little tough because 2 days after my birthday – the 18th – was the 1st anniversary of my mother’s death, and that’s going to be kind of a thing for the rest of my life now… as some sort of spectral backseat…

David Letterman

Honestly it’s been years since I’ve watched any real late night ‘talk show’ but I feel now, as a man closer to my 50’s than my 20’s that tonight there’s going to be some sort of mechanism — some sort of rollover — some large metal lever will be turned and the late night human…

Lost Music: Bloody Bark

Fakin’ It

Found this track recently while digging around backup dvds of old projects.  Not sure what this was for but I remember winging it for the most part (and there’s certainly some flubs in there).  For some reason bits of it reminds me of Coil.
