Margins & Micro EP   Leave a comment

This set is for songs that don’t fit the mold of my other projects.

This is a set of loops I recorded using the Wizard Master Control Program [] and I thought it would be fun to release them. Caution, they are actually kinda annoying.

Non Vegan (vegetarian) Vegan Shepard’s Pie   Leave a comment

Tonight my wife and I made the Vegan Shepard’s Pie recipe from Scott Pilgrim vs The World (vol. 2).

We used real milk and butter but otherwise followed the directions, including a layer of corn and diced tomatoes in the middle.

Oh and I drank a bit too much red wine… um, anyway it was amazing and super tasty, thank you Mr. O’Malley!

Some Kind of Summary of Current Events   Leave a comment

I got an awesome bike and have been riding it a lot.

I’m on volume 2 of Scott Pilgrim and am starting to dislike the movie for trying to cram 6 books into one movie. I mean, come on. I have been on comics hiatus except for SP, but AvX is wrapping up soon and I picked up the new Gambit, just need to find to read them both. All I can say is I can’t wait for Saga to come back in November.

Work has been crazy some days, but not so bad others. It’s football season though so the weekends are always crazy. Oh, and um, college kids drink a lot on the weekends. If you didn’t know, now you do.

I want to do another Micro Review soon but I’m not sure what to review. I’ve stopped dead about a quarter into Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Even though it interests me it somehow doesn’t capture me like Scott Pilgrim is right now. I don’t know, maybe it’ll be easier to read books when it gets too cold out to ride bikes. 

That’s actually about it, I’ve been riding bikes a lot, working and relaxing with my wife the rest of the time. I’ll throw together a micro review before the end of the month. Or I’ll try to anyway.

Horrible…   Leave a comment

I have heard the sound of evil.

Something so unearthly, something so grotesque, so mind bending and headache inducing that it must be the work of the Elder Gods. Maybe even He Who May Not Be Named.

What is the noise likely created by the nightmare controlled followers of Cthulu?

They call it music. To me it sounds like people suffering. And drills and wobbly devilish bass lines that sound like nightmares.

It’s called dub step, and I’d rather listen to Fall Out Boy or whatever a Ke$ha is. ‘Nuff said.
