Let Your Indulgence Set Me Free

Tonight we performed the last show of our run of “The Tempest”. As with every play/film/project I do, the ending is bittersweet. Part of me is happy to be done and to move on to new exciting things and part of me is sad that it’s over. This profession is so strange in that you tend to form relationships very quickly and sometimes intensely. You become a family during the course of the project and then you all go your separate ways when it’s all over. If you’re lucky, you stay in contact with at least a few of them and even more rarely you end up with some actual friends.

The show is over
Time to shed the facial hair
I can grow it back

To shave or not to shave, that is the question!

To keep it or shave it
I find it hard to decide
You decide for me

Introducing My Muse

In which I demonstrate my new Rainsong Carbon/Graphite guitar while trying not let my perfectionist nature obsess over the mistakes, rocking camera (both literally and figuratively) and other details of this intentionally “raw” captured performance.

Don’t be stuck on traditions
Follow your own muse

April Showers Bring Flotsam and Jetsam

What do peanut butter, pudding, roaches and Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” have in common? They’re all part of this brain dump!

Milkshake

Heavenly milkshake
I am a better person
Fatter but better

Heath and Lars are teasing Casey because he is the only one who declined getting a milkshake
Heath: Mmmmm, man this is quite possibly the best milkshake I’ve ever had.
Lars: Yeah, same here. You called it.
Heath: In fact this may be the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth in my 38 years of being alive. This shake has enhanced my life. I am a better person for having had this shake. I feel I will be happier, more successful and have a deeper ability to love because of this shake.

Geeks with guitars

I have finished my latest musical composition. My last song, Triage, was a pour-your-heart-out-raw-emotion type thing so I felt the need to compose a companion piece that was just a rocking, fun, catchy, upbeat, punny kind of song. The result: Tech Support. This is hopefully the final mix but as I listen to it on more systems and get feedback I may fine tune it a bit. As I do I’ll always upload the most current mp3.

Well I know you don’t need anyone’s help, your own ability more than suffices.
But it’s so much better to let somebody else check out your motherboard or plug in devices.
So let me take care of all your modern frustrations.
I’ll be your boffin probing all of your workstations.
No viruses detected I’ll keep everything running smooth.
Optimizing me and you!
I wanna be your tech support, 24/7 I’m there on site.
And though I mean it quite literally, if it sounds like innuendo then that’s alright.
I wanna turn you on, tune you up, tweak your settings til your satisfied.
Just let me be your tech support and I’ll fix everything right.
I’d love to fill your iPod, I’ll make sure that it’s never out of sync.
I’ll calibrate your entertainment center, keep your cables coiled without a kink (unless you’re into that).
I’ll defrag you at your every whim, keep you spinning at 10,000 RPM.
Increase the bandwidth of our connection til it’s off the chart.
Just like the throughput of my heart!
Chorus
Hardware, software, anywhere you need me there.
Hi-Fi, Wi-Fi, you and I, a twisted pair.
Just grant me access to query your source,
Until my fingers are tired from textual intercourse!
I wanna test you out, open your ports, double check your wiring and get rid of your shorts.
I wanna scan your disks, make sure you don’t overheat, configure your peripherals, re-plug and re-seat.
I wanna turn you on, tune you up, tweak your settings til your satisfied.
Just let me be your tech support and I’ll fix everything right.

Geek Rock

Geek rocking goodness
Obscure double entendre
How much will you get?
