I knew a guy who ordered a "fruity pleaser" once and got more than he bargained for.

There have been many more moments I've thought about how happy I am to be doing this than times when the frustration has felt like too much.

A wise friend in a similar situation told me, "The fruition is the best part, outside of retrospect."

The sync did indeed take a long time, but in order of length, the most time consuming part was the edit itself: Troubleshooting footage conversion from wacky capture software to something FCP2 likes (without footage compression or degradation): 2.5 months Sync of audio tracks with video in timeline:...

July 4th 107.7 The End Beach House Show

So says their website. 7pm.

Not sure exactly what this is about, as I'm not a regular listener to The End. It looks like something that people can go to, and could be simulcast on the radio.

Ugh. Another social networking site to join...

Can you repost the info here for people who aren't on FB? (or whose workplaces ban access to those sites, like mine?)

I wasn't able to watch this at work because they block MySpace, so I just now saw the Steven Page version at home. Personally, I'd put it in the "Nicely Done" category. If TLW went on a Canadian tour with BNL, it would bring them innumerable new listeners. The Barenaked Ladies sell out arenas on tou...

Question: Is it always cool and flattering when someone covers one of your songs, or are there artists that make you go, "Uh, dude? You're butchering it..."? Just to clarify, we should probably make a list. You know, to keep things organized...would it look like this? Nicely Done: Nada Surf Ben Gibb...

Japanese Guitars

Through some good luck and a kind offer, I have the chance to get a guitar from Japan. Their 'clones' (I won't say knockoffs, because their quality is often superior than American made gear) are plentiful and varied with labels like Baccus, Greco , Orville , Tokai , Burny , Navigator, etc. So accura...

The first time I heard this song, I thought it was written from the viewpoint of someone in a coma. Then a film student at the UW, I wrote a music video treatment for it from that perspective and upon giving it to John this suspicion was confirmed. In it, the patient, played by John, astrally projec...

Where do we stand in terms of the documentary? Or was that completely shelved for the live package? The post-production work on the documentary has been spotty since post began on the live show. It hasn't been forgotten; once the live show is out, it's back to full-time doc work. As far as working ...

Things are out of my hands at the moment, but I'd count on a CD/DVD package of the live show being released sooner or later.

Eventually.

At some point.
