Well, this is hardly news, but I thought I’d let the hardcore fans know that I finally got around to posting the original promo video clips from the Passage album on YouTube. These video segments were done shortly after the CD was completed, and consist of short (~30 second) clips for each track panning and scanning through photographs from the journey that inspired the music in the first place.

The above is the entire 6-minute video reel, with intro and credits; I have also posted the individual segments with commentary on the images and background, on my homepage at Enjoy!

Rest in Peace (Haiku)

Is it a clear-cut case of the ‘mighty falling’…or are there some other dirt-ridden social layers here worth sifting through?

(By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) – Canadian Army)

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Good Night…and Good Luck

Democrats win control of the House. Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dummer? Let’s hope these particular puppets have string-pullers with a shred of actual humanity.

‘There is a GOD’ Update: Rummy’s history!!!

The Tragically Hip just finished four nights in Vancouver, and have a rockin’ new album!

There are so many pending splits. What are we to do without the stability of our celebrity role models???

Are Chavez’s dreams (as well as some of ours) slowly becoming a reality…?

One of the many reasons we’re happy the ol’ Pledge Drive is a distant memory…

Andrew and I are going to be pointing and swinging Wiimotes like stink in a few weeks. Meanwhile, Ian shall finally shred his way back into the spotlight…and there will be much rejoicing.

Heath Ledger has been reading the Killing Joke. Well duh

A couple of us went within mere miles of Yankee country to enjoy the fine hospitality of Swiss Family Dobson. Kimmie V re-posted Comicon pics so you could enjoy his gorgeous mug and bite-sized offspring (along with some incriminating fright-night goofery).

Some micropenised wank spat the following at us late yesterday:

“You are further fueling my belief that there are too many artists out there, and not enough Mark David Chapmans. Seriously.. did your funding get cut, and all you had left to put on video were the fucking story boards? I really hope you never work again.”

I was alllllmost hurt (and a tad paranoid), until my Warning Alert Narcissism Generator kicked in with the whole Lennon parallel. Awesome!!!
