Funny, I linked this all sorts of places, except on my own sites.
There is a story I relate about my wife talking to a Malaysian woman. She was shocked to find out that Keren was married to a Filipino male. One of the reasons was the amount of people Filipinos liked to have over every weekend. According to her, no white woman would stand for that. But my Dove is a very… Read more →
This past weekend, I attended Ontario’s Filk convention. Filk is a music genre, mostly folk music, dedicated to fantasy and science fiction. However, one could write and sing about any obsession that spans the geek spectrum.
World Science Festival 2009: Bobby McFerrin Demonstrates the Power of the Pentatonic Scale from World Science Festival on Vimeo. Notes & Neurons: In Search of the Common Chorus. Very cool
Mid June has not been productive. Neither has early July. But 50/90 has started up and I am remembering the energy of FAWM. “This is the club.

So I wrote this cute little children’s song called The Chicken and the Alien with Nancy Rost, who was also part of FAWM.ORG (and also has like a million songs). Anyway, I get an email from someone who wishes to get into the 3D business and wants to build up his portfolio, so he wants to make a 3D animated… Read more →
There comes a time in a man’s life when he has realized that whatever goal he has unconsciously set out to complete has finally, unequivocally been accomplished. That occurred a few days ago. Life has been busy. I’ve had a flurry of crazy jollity with FAWM, which I could blog about because it was so insanely fun, but this touched… Read more →
The internets is teaching me the Blues, albeit with limited success. Someone from FAWM wanted me to do a jazz piece, which I can’t play. So I went onto youtube and found how to play the blues. This led me to Expert Village. Where you can learn everything from folding laundry to building atom bombs: http://www.expertvillage.com/search.htm?s=blues+piano+lick+easy Three levels.
