Why my hip-hop posse would include Johnny 5

Johnny 5
The founder of the Flobots, Johnny 5 builds a repertoire of songs that have a voice communicated through masked patriotism for a nation we do not know. I don’t do lyrics, so I’d need someone to help put together some potent rap-styled slander.

Balthazar got a special quarter. It’s a “bison tentacle.” #
Hemse flooring at Ikea is $0.50 a square foot. Sick! #

Kindergarten Schedule

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Balthazar told me what his schedule looks like at school.  When he gets to schools, he draws, goes to lunch, naps, plays on the playground, then waits for the buses.  I guess things haven’t changed a lot in the schools since I was little.  Of course, he thinks my schedule looks like this: drive forever […]

Lost and Found: 1 Grecian ‘Stache

Friday, January 9th, 2009

All of you will surely recognize the man on the left.  His biblical image comes at you in all of its hair and puffy-shirtness like a thunder clap.  Yanni stands as the hairiest, women-loving man I know [of]…though Hugh Jackman must be at the top of this game too!  And on his right is the […]

A Drum Circle Arrangement of “Galang”

Friday, January 9th, 2009

I’m imagining some possible scenarios where I could lead a drum circle into a sort of performance.  Most facilitated drum circles enter into spontaneous or random rhythms and are then led to compose the music.  I would really like to lead people (sometimes naively) into known songs.  There’s an extra sense of excitement when you […]

As a Multi-Millionaire…

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

My wife and I like to think strategically about our future.  Planning and foresight can save you a lot of grief and work in earnest.
In the event that we should become multi-millionaires in the future, we want to make sure we know what we’re going to do with the money.  The following is an ongoing […]

Tomorrow is Christmas – the 5-year-old is starting to vibrate. #
Balthazar just called the clock a “time machine.” Fitting, really. #
I hate cats at Christmas – they break your ornaments! #
Merry Christmas! #
I got the Zoom H2 field recorder! You can expect to hear some live drumming in the future. #

A Comment on the Weather

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

I got a Christmas card from the nice folks at the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) – the Climate Witness division. You may recall the article I wrote for them concerning the pitiful state of Lake Lanier (speaking of which, the scientific review of my story is now available). The card reminded […]

Just noticed I’m eating at a place with an 84 health score. If I don’t twit in after lunch, I’m dead. #
I have lived through lunch! Perhaps hot coffee will sterilize my bowels. #
70°F on Dec. 18th – this weather has sapped my energy completely. #
Nothing beats blasting out your favorite tunes from high school […]

Tomorrow I attend a “Build-a-Drum” workshop. Very exciting! #
My son’s kindergarten teacher called me in to pickup a “sharp object.” It was a 3/4″ Forstner drill bit that he had forgotten in his pocket. #
First day of drum building was eventful! Tomorrow, I finish up and get to hear how it sounds. #
A mere 20 […]
