For those following at home, you may have noticed the lack of activity. Rest assured the dormancy is restricted to this blog. I'm staying stupid busy, and perhaps that is the driver. Just so many electrons in the ether that I can direct, and most of my spare energy is being poured into music. You can keep up with those exploits on the main site: And specifically: nostatic music Lots of tangible stuff there. As for this blog, it has been active in one form or another since 2003. Sadly I lost a bunch of early posts but most of it is either here or at the previous iteration. I'll likely fire up a post now and again, but for now the days of posting every day (which I did for a lot of years) are behind me. When one window closes, another door opens up. As long as it doesn't smack you in the face, everything should be fine... Until we meet again.

So what kind of scum takes a dog that is lost but has tags and a cell phone number of the owner? Well, it looks like we may find out at some point soon...

night off

A shocking un-booked night. Well, except for email that caused me to pull out the SD charts out to break off some rust. When it rains it pours...just need a few more hours in the day. Or days in the week. Or weeks in the year...

double duty

First IDC rehearsal, then another nostatic gig. This is becoming a habit...

About what the boy and I did today. Well, he napped. I should have napped.

A new venue, a somewhat new lineup, and a knock-out gig. We'll be (hopefully) back in Dec.

A long night last night, trying to prep for the Thursday gig. Three vocalists and a horn running various tunes in an attempt to make things come together. *sigh* this is like work...

Well, multiple trips to the EU shooting now gives a bunch of footage and translations. That has to be turned into a finished project. Going to be a busy Nov.

A halloween spent hanging out while serving as friend shuttle for the boy. I suppose it is better than sitting at home and not answering the door for all the kids that dont come to the apartment. Hmm, not sure that made sense...

The ribbon that it. Big schindig at work to officially open the building weve been in for a few months. Got to shake hands with the president (of USC - who I knew in my previous position). And have an ICtini. Festive. Now for the work to do...

No food until dinner other than a muffin, due in no small part to the evil that is some (all?) military contractors. And their lawyers as well. Pure evil.

b-day concert gift for st, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Somewhat of a haul down to Anaheim, but festive enough atmosphere and not many hassles. Was odd being about the oldest person in the crowd though - mostly 20-something hippies and hipsters. Im neither and at least double that. Also interesting in that the band is very much a happy vibe group and their music reflects that. Only problem was that they looked a little burned out from the road, and tired doesnt always enable happy. But still a cool show.

and back at it

Back to the grindstone on both fronts - the office and then the studio (4+ hour rehearsal). No rest for the wicked...well, yesterday I suppose was rest for the wicked...

day off

Sun, 10/24/2010 - 22:02
Wow - no gigs, no appointment, no place to be. Shocking. I suppose thats why breakfast happened at 1:30pm and the boy napped until 5pm. Sweet.

in the park

Live jazz in the park? What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon...
