2013: My year in live music

I’ve been fortunate this year to have been able to see a number of live music shows. In fact, I’d say that in 2013 I’ve seen more concerts than I have in the previous 5 years combined. In an effort to remember this year’s batch of shows, I’m going to cram my recollections in at […]

Burned out, but better now

2012 was a busy year for making music here at Snoozeking. In addition to the annual production of a DD69 album (this year’s effort: Get Up), I spent a great deal of time working on the first new Foonspeeders album in over a decade. Despite the fact that there’s no serious deadline for these projects, […]

Out with the old?

I’ve been trying to clean up the studio (you know, to make room for new gear, heh heh). In the process I’ve come across a couple boxes of unsold Foonspeeders and drunkdude69 CDs. Foonspeeders was a band that Mike, his brother Maury, our friend Scott Haumesser and I were in in the mid-to-late 1990s here […]

In loving memory

I was very close with my maternal grandparents. They were a big part of inspiring and enabling my love of art and music, as briefly described here. My grandmother was an artist: a painter, penciler, seamstress, creative cook. I spent my summers with she and my grandfather, and she and I often went to the […]

Hog Hog Hog!

Happy Groundhog Day! As is usual, I will join a select few others on an exclusive pilgrimage to an undisclosed location to celebrate the holiday this weekend.  It’s a chance to go underground, so to speak, and get off the map. There will be ukuleles involved.
