    April 23, 2005: Today, the last day of a quasi-vacation I took from my Cursed Day Job, I was fairly productive on non-MWS Media stuff! First of all: I've started messing around with Sonar, in the eventual hope that I'll start laying down some tracks. I discovered a couple of things: 1) I haven't played bass, guitar, or…

    October 17, 2004: Man oh man, but I do love Godzilla. I'd say it's a guilty secret, except that I have no guilt and I don't keep it a secret by any means. I get a very deep sense of well-being and satisfaction when I see a Godzilla movie. Any Godzilla movie... except the one made by that…

    October 9, 2004: Well, it just occurred to me that I can write about things in a way that I can't in the "Founder's Corner" at MWS Media. It's a matter of context, see. MWS Media is my business, it's where I focus on a very specific part of my art -- supporting and encouraging DIY folks and…

    March 24, 2004: This one's more of a rocker... the type of song I sing acoustic that used to drive REDACTED crazy: "You're wasting these songs by not having a band!!!!" Feh.
