My latest video. I was asked to create a short video to show people where the Heruka Buddhist Center was located in Fort Collins, Colorado.
I want to re-connect people with music.
I want people to remember that listening to music is more than just having ear buds in your ear while you are jogging.
I want people to know that there is more to music than a quick 3 minute song that was a random play on their i-Pod.
I want people to discover that there is more to a symphony that just a 5 minute overture.
I want people to experience hot jazz.
I want people to feel a vinyl record in their hands and dropping a needle in the groove.
I want people to sit in a chair and read liner notes while music pores out of stereo speakers.
I want people to find true passion for music again.

Interested in reading and exploring the old pulp heroes of the 30’s and 40’s? You could try your local library. Between the library here and the inter-loan service that connects other libraries around Colorado and Wyoming, I was able to delve pretty well into the stories of The Spider and The Shadow. I have also found many sites that sell reprints of the old pulps and some can even be bought for ebooks.
If you go to Radio Archives and sign up for their newsletter, they will send you a link for an ebook of The Spider, who 1st appeared not long after The Shadow got his start. I’ve had a blast reading these stories. Some stories may contain ethnic stereotypes that was at the time acceptable, but can be difficult for us to digest today.
Other titles I’ve enjoyed and can be found in multiple formats (books and ebooks), The Phantom Detective, The Crimson Mask and The Black Bat. Dynamite Comics has been resurrecting these almost forgotten heroes back to life and putting them on the pages of full color comics! If you are also interested in viewing some other pulp magazines of the time visit The Pulp Magazines Project. They have quite a bit of pulps on line that you can view as well.
Hit me up if you want to talk pulps.
I have released a demo song yesterday. A few weeks back I was working on a Shiekback cover and I saw on Fandalism that a facebook friend posted a new lyrics for a song. With the sounds of Shriekback swirling in my head, I had to put those awesome lyrics to music. I found the perfect vehicle in a song I started last year, but never got too far on. I built it up and recorded vocals to it.
Lyrics were written by Babalon Jackson, a Thelemic lyricist who lives in Illinois. We are working on a way for her to record he vocals and then replacing mine for the final product. If it works out, you may be hearing some more tunes!
I wrote the song itself as well as all voices, instruments and programming. I also wrote the poem, Heaven Bound.
I hope you enjoy!
