The Wall: Live In Berlin

Watched Roger Waters’ The Wall: Live In Berlin tonight with Victoria. That was a trip. I haven’t seen it in ages. The last time I did, it was on a VHS tape. Yeah. That long. This time I got to watch it on DVD on a 50″ plasma television and in surround sound. That’s the… Continue reading The Wall: Live In Berlin

Eleanor Rigby

I’ve been tinkering with my old 4-track tapes of late, and wound up listening to a recording I’d made with an old friend of The Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby. It made quite an impression on my girlfriend, so I wound up porting it over to the computer and re-mixing it. I was kind of surprised to… Continue reading Eleanor Rigby

One Nation, Under Surveillance

With a Presidential election looming, most Progressive thinkers in the United States seem intent to celebrate the imminent demise of the Republican party. Most un-biased polls show Barack Obama leading John McCain. The Republicans expect to lose a lot of seats in Congress. For all intents and purposes, this seems to be the Democrats’ year.… Continue reading One Nation, Under Surveillance

Resurrection: The Watch Has, At Long Last, Found Its Way Home

If you’ve followed The Watch here to its permanent home on wicasta.com, you’ll not doubt notice that there have been some changes in the way this all looks now. That’s the first thing, and the best. I’ve finally broken down and made this into a sub-domain on my own web site. I figure that’ll give… Continue reading Resurrection: The Watch Has, At Long Last, Found Its Way Home

This Old Dawg

I’ve been thinking for awhile about what song I want to record first. Believe it or not, that’s a bit of a problem. I have hundreds of songs, and at least a couple dozen that I want to record right now. Basically, I’ve been going over my songs in my head, trying to figure out… Continue reading This Old Dawg

A Playboy In The Bathroom

I was just about to head to bed. Something funny occurred to me while I was … ahem … sitting on the throne in the bathroom. I went into the bathroom with a Playboy magazine and the user’s manual for a t.c. electronics M-One effects processor, not knowing which one I was going to look… Continue reading A Playboy In The Bathroom

A Table & Four Chairs

I’m cooling out for a minute. Just made the bed and got the dishes out of the dishwasher. I’m going to take out the trash and then box up a couple of things I sold on eBay. Mostly I’m squaring things away so that I can work on recording for the rest of the day.… Continue reading A Table & Four Chairs

Fox News Accountability?

I keep hoping that at some point we will finally reach a tipping point beyond which the millions of Americans who believe that Fox News is a legitimate news organization will finally see them as what they are; the political propaganda wing of the Republican party. While I’m not foolish enough to believe that we’ll… Continue reading Fox News Accountability?

Robbed

I’m not in the best of moods today. I logged-in to my World of Warcraft account this morning only to discover that it had been hacked. All of my armor and gold are gone. They cleaned out my guild’s bank, as well, of all gold and sale-able items. I’ve opened a ticket and hope that… Continue reading Robbed
