Videos for Watch Time Enjoyment

Jan. × ’11

Here are a couple videos that I’ve been meaning to post for a couple weeks. This first one is Angela and me performing Andrew Paul Jackson‘s Aphorism I at last month’s IhearIC. Or at least Angela and some guy named Chris HD. By contrast, this video is me playing with one of my gifts from […]

A Crack in the Armor

Jan. × ’10

With the new year has come a renewed zeal to become a two-hat man again. While at the height of my powers I was able to practice up to five hours a day, my hands simply aren’t cut out for that sort of abuse anymore. Since I don’t have any concrete performance obligations looming outside […]

Stupid Machine!

Two weekends ago I ventured to the western side of the state for the last time this summer for a two friends’ wedding. (To each other. Congratulations Joel and Miranda) Being both musicians there were a few people there to wax musicological with, including a post-doc fellow from Lawrence and a friend starting her doctorate […]

Confessions of a Pit Fighter

Apr. × ’07

As a guitarist a block away from perhaps the largest concentration of guitarists I’m not exactly swimming in gigs.

You Could Only Hope to Live in Ivywild

Nov. × ’06

I tend to spend my Thursdays at the BPL now. Whereas Monday through Wednesday keep me busy into the evenings and Friday is when my faux musicology is often due, Thursdays are free and allow me time to nerd it up hardcore. It was actually at the much smaller library where I work that this […]

Shrapnel sequel

Oct. × ’06

I told you I’d be back sooner than you thought. I even did some culture last night n’ stuff. First, however, comes all the random things I wanted to mention yesterday.1!) I’ve been listening to Ornette Coleman again lately, mainly suckered in by his bizarre “Bach Prelude” on the album Tone Dialing. The first half […]
