Dancing With The Green Fairy

Victoria and I were rummaging around in the local ABC store today, when I came across some small bottles of Grande Absente absinthe. Well, needless to say, I snatched one up. It’s unlikely we could ever afford the big bottles, but this small bottle was definitely within our reach. Plus, it’s not like we’d want… Continue reading Dancing With The Green Fairy

The Death, Rebirth And Life Of Visili Kruvoi

In spite of the fact that I’ve been casting about for the right project and the right approach to get things rolling, one idea has remained constant. That concerns a vampire named Visili Kruvoi, who was born in the mid 1500’s, and who now lives in Saint Petersburg, Florida under the name of Bill Crewe.… Continue reading The Death, Rebirth And Life Of Visili Kruvoi

Ybor Saturday Market – Aug 29, 2009

I’ll be hanging out at the Floozees Doozees booth at the Ybor Saturday Market in Centennial Park, in the old Ybor City section of Tampa this coming Saturday. Come on out and check out some of Victoria’s excellent custom t-shirts, jewelry and candle rings. We’ll sing us a song together or something. Ybor Saturday Market… Continue reading Ybor Saturday Market – Aug 29, 2009

Musical Illuminations

I’ve been donating my old guitar and bass strings to Victoria’s Floozees Doozees company, with which she’s been making the most amazing candle rings. She calls this series “Musical Illuminations”, and I’m quite excited about it. The gist of it is that each candle ring is made from one or more strings which have come… Continue reading Musical Illuminations

A Cruel And Bitter Blow

Okay, so maybe the title is melodramatic, but what happened last night felt that way. I was coming through the kitchen and bumped into a glass of wine that was on the counter (my legendary gracefulness didn’t come into play). In what was probably a 1 in 35,000,000 chance, the glass fell over onto my… Continue reading A Cruel And Bitter Blow

Thoughts On A Friday At Gino's

It seems so strange that my band, Systematic Chaos, has suddenly wound up with a time slot on a Friday at Market On 7th. We’ve been bugging the owner, Gino, for ages about letting us play some on the weekends there, and he’s been pretty resistant to the idea. Now suddenly, when I was talking… Continue reading Thoughts On A Friday At Gino's

So Long, John

I finally got off of my ass and finished a song that I started working on last year. After I’d crash-landed with This Old Dawg, I started working on a song that I wrote for my uncle, Loyd Short. This song was called So Long, John. I recorded everything but the vocals, and then I… Continue reading So Long, John
