Posted a new track on SoundCloud “P&J”:
Live recording of SRV’s P&J from a recent show. Band is basically MS Moon minus a couple of members, plus a couple of guests. Bad recording – I just used the sound recorder on my phone propped up on an amp. But I thought I’d drop it out here regardless. The band grooves well.
Wow. You learn something every day. MS Office files post-Office2007 are just ZIP archives. Just open the .docx in 7ZIP or your favorite app. Drill down the folder structure to find embedded items neatly organized. When someone “helps” by sending you a bunch of pictures pasted into a Word document, just drill down to the /word/media folder and pull the originals out.
Posted a new track on SoundCloud “Amore”:
Haven’t played any acoustic in a WHILE, so I decided to pick it up tonight. I was trying to remember how Chanson D’amour goes. It was wrong, but in the same vein. 2 track, no tweaking outside of a touch of reverb.
Band I’ve been playing with lately – great group of folks. We got a few clips from our last show.
Really fantastic paper here by law professor Donald Harris comparing the current state of copyright enforcement/infringement with Prohibition.
The basic takeaway – Prohibition failed through massive civil disobedience, which is to be expected when the law attempts to enforce broad societal norms that are not in line with the values of the populace. And apparently, copyright is headed in that direction.
Latest project is a new band we’re calling Brush. Myself, Matt Bisson, Larry Smith and Jan Buchholz. First track is out of the box!
Posted a new track on SoundCloud “Legos on the Floor at Night”:
This instrumental is not your typical one. It’s more just noodling with different sounds and techniques. The song is evocative of walking through your house at night in the dark, stumbling for the kitchen and occasionally stepping on a Lego left by your children. That’s the inspiration, anyway – and the story I’m sticking to.
