Trying to get a bunch done lately.
Laid out my “artsy” comic stuff called “small art” (at least I think that’s what I named it) that is narratives & abstract art. Five separate issues in color. I’ll get digital versions for you guys to look at up at some point.
I got this digital photo frame that I was planning to use for the comic convention to make things a little more interactive on my table. I found a good deal on a refurbished one, but somehow it is completely DOA (it does not turn on). I hate the headache of returns. & since it was through the mail, I have to wonder if I’ll be able to get a functioning replacement in time for SPACE.
Our good friend/ally Zac Keiller who runs Dreamland asked me to share this link where you can listen to some of the stuff his label’s been up to.
My postal scale is having some issues. Maybe it’s trying to send me a message from the future, but I can’t figure it out.
There was some discussion over on the What It Is blog that I was involved with recently on booking gigs & hipsters.
I just ran across this article on how to turn an amplifier into a low frequency microphone. I thought some of you would be interested. I don’t think I have the type of amplifier to easily do what they’re talking about unfortunately….
I talked to Peter Aldrich & he seems pretty confident that He’ll be able to set up some kind of streaming thing for the 15 Year Show.
I don’t know what’s up, but in the past couple of weeks I’ve been asked to do a Small Life Form release for Blondena Music & a Remora release for Dark Meadow Recordings. Things are rolling with them happening well enough that I feel comfortable mentioning them. The SLF will probably be sometime relatively soon & the Remora is slated for February 2012.
So at the Weather Machine show I got to hear a great story. As some of you may know, Bryce Eiman of Weather Machine is my father (though he didn’t raise me) & Andrew Weathers is my biological son (I didn’t raise him, funny how history repeats itself), anyway Bryce goes to a Borders that’s closing & this kid sees a Pacific Before Tiger sticker on his car & asks him about it & Bryce tells him, “Yeah, I know Andrew, I’m good friends with him.” As the conversation continues he reveals that he’s actually Andrew’s grandfather. The kid looks at him really puzzled & says, “I’m his brother.” The world’s a little too small sometimes.
