NOSTRA-DUMB-ASS: Craig Garber of the Everyone Loves Guitar podcast was kind enough to have me back to talk specifically about “Scenes From The Flood”, with the benefit of nine months of hindsight. Topics include lots of guitar talk, OCD, human nature, and…the strange feeling of having written an album about how human beings react, personally and collectively, to a cataclysmic event, and how that trauma can strip away the illusions we have about ourselves, and the world around us, and where to stand after we’ve let all that go. (Dear Universe, if you’re listening, my next album is going to be about peace on earth and the end of all human suffering. Yes, Universe, it’s a change in artistic direction…what do you mean the A & R guys don’t buy it? Who’s running this label?!) ... See MoreSee Less
MUSICIAN SEEKING GEAR (MSG?): Anyone out there got a pair of KRK V6 Series 2 Monitors (very specific on the model) they might want to unload? Or even just one? I'm looking! CONUS is best. Hit me if you're interested.

JOE TRAVERS' DW PLAYLIST PARTY: Wanna know what the guy who got me my big break into the music biz listens to? JT isn't just a drummer, he's practically a rock music historian. Live tomorrow at 10:00AM U.S. Pacific Time! ... See MoreSee Less
CALLING ANY DENVER RIDERS: Strange post, but strange times, so...are there any motorcycle riders in Denver willing to check out a bike for sale in the area for me? One that looks very much like this? If so, message me and we can figure out details and the make-good! 🏍🏍🏍🏍 ... See MoreSee Less
GENE HOGLAN’S BRUTAL SURPRISE: The breaking news is that I’ve been mentally formulating an unusual full-arrangement play-thru/concept video for “A Quickening” and “Steiner In Ellipses” from “Scenes From The Flood”. Then, out of nowhere, Gene Hoglan calls me and says “Hey man, I did a drum play-thru video for “Steiner In Ellipses”! What were the odds?
So, check out the one and only Gene Hoglan playing “Steiner In Ellipses” as a drum feature play-thru. And in a couple of months or so, I’ll hope to share with you this Big Video idea I have for both songs back to back, with the full band (and some other weird ideas) in mind.
NOSTRA-DUMB-ASS: I'm back on Craig Garber/Everyone Loves Guitar for a “Scenes From The Flood” chat, w/benefit of 9 mos. hindsight. Gtr talk, OCD, human nature, & SFTF's accidentally prescient dystopian story. Disillusionment? We call that "Tuesday" now...
FUCK YOU, Complicit Fascist Barbie. Me and my fellow musicians love our jobs and if your father wasn't such a colossal fuck up we'd be getting back out there and doing them, instead of being locked out of the rest of the world and shut down at home. Also, did I mention, fuck you?
