The Girl and the Bull

A powerful photo. It could mean a few things. We all have our ideas. Powerful in this way. The straight-and-narrow path depicted by the vertical space between the two downtown buildings. The young girl, though, does not look like she is going to take the old straight-and-narrow path. To me, this makes her so much […]

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

Pitt and DeCaprio / A Fading Cowboy Star and his Loyal Stuntman Somewhat of a nostalgic day seeing the new Tarantino movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. I was born in LA and lived there in most of the 50s. Interestingly, I moved back there to attend UCLA in the summer of 1969. So, […]

Rain Dance

“Rain Dance” by The Guess Who (1971) Around two years ago, during one of those long nights in the offices of Midnight Oil Studios, I lifted part of a rather obscure song called “Rain Dance” by The Guess Who and reversed it in my music software and sampled a part from it that reminded me […]

Greyhound Facebook Group

Genna (In her retirment pose by the dining room window) By Genna’s Father Our black greyhound is my wife’s third greyhound while it is my first greyhound. I have always loved and had dogs. But it’s been a long time since I’ve had a dog. Fifteen years. She started telling me it would be a […]

An Old Track

Mixing GargeBand with My Synthesizers Found an old back-ground track on GarageBand. Introducing it to the boys in the band. It’s 45 bars long consisting of the looped programs in GarageBand called Deep Chord, Big Room Magnus and Bass Patterns. We’ll come up with something new. Interfacing with our Korg Minilogue, Electribe Sampler, Novation MiniNova […]
