  • “we play recap rock!”

(posted by tobias)

File this under ‘I wish I’d thought of that’… a concept band where every song is a recap of a Lost episode. From the Wired Blog Network article: (I wanted to post this before the event in question but the blog was broken… I still think it’s pretty clever, so I’m posting it anyway)

… headed by 20-year-old New York University musician Adam Schatz and Jeff Curtin, [Previously On Lost] has been releasing a recap song laden with all the hard-to-track action following each episode of the ABC show for the last 12 weeks. The songs are hilarious and cool, somewhat like a frantic mash of Frank Zappa and Flaming Lips with a dose of old Disney musicals for good measure.

Previously on Lost will premiere the final song of season four live this Sunday night at New York’s Knitting Factory… That performance will be the official recording, so if you’re at the show and want to participate, the band promises “you’ll be on the record.” All 12 songs will be performed in order before the finale. Expect an epic performance…

OK then, even if it is 1 day late…

Blog’s Back Up!

Thanks for the save, Simon – looks like we’re back in business 🙂

Expect lots of posts over the next three weeks – maybe even a newsletter, by golly!

Saintly Smooches


PS – Just received the following through the BS Myspace page…and goshdarnit, this is turning into one pretty awesome birthday:

I just finished the final disk last of BS last week. The reason it took me so long is because I watched the first disk an uncountable number of times before moving to the second. Every time I watched it, I felt like I got caught in a new part of it and lost my focus in meditating on a minor idea in the grand scheme. I finally finished the 3rd and 4th disks over two weeks which involved watching each episode several times and more than a few reviews of the 1st and 2nd disk.
The message is so profound. It encompasses every nearly ineffable concept that I have been seeking clarity on. It is wonderful to know that at least one person on earth could portray such amazing Truths in such a short, powerful story. BS is a “text” to live by. I keep it close to my soul and share the word with anyone who will listen.
Bless you on your path and thank you so much for truly sharing your truth with me, personally. I hope you are well and have peace and prosperity in every day.

  • is it actually possible to keep track of all this?

Brooke suggested that I post this a while back, so here it is… a screen capture from the project file for my music for that new project that we’re being ‘mysterious bastards’ about…
If you look closely you’ll see this one is of an orchestral bent. And it’s likely the most complex thing I’ve ever put together. Those looking for clues will find that there aren’t any, really… but just to whet the appetite…

They should pay attention to this space. A re-assessment may be in order in a few weeks 😉
