Caprica Canceled? It's The SyFy Network That Should Be Canceled

The morons at the SyFy network couldn’t have made its success more difficult to achieve if they had intentionally been trying to do so. The show aired on January 22,… Continue reading Caprica Canceled? It's The SyFy Network That Should Be Canceled

Splitting The Atom (One Song At A Time)

You may have noticed that our music player on the web site has recently been stripped of most of its tunes. There’s a reason for this.

Return Of The SGX-2000

My band, Windhaven, is recording an album, so I thought it would make sense to finally get my ART SGX-2000 back up and running.
