By popular request, I am today making available six of my best-loved dance tracks:The first two are from my GunFlower album This album is only being sold through huge corporate behemoth superchains like Blockbuster Music and Best Buy so if you see it for sale at an independent locally owned shop or advertised on the Internet you know it's a cheap bootleg knockoff. "Trip Funk" is from my as-yet-unreleased-but-I-plan-to-get-it-out-there-any-day-now INS release Chilled Water Plant #3. And the last three are from my latest hit CD (as heard on Madison's WSUM 91.7FM) The Citizen's Guide to Sonic Defense.

I hope the person who requested these appreciates all the hard work I had to do in order to prepare them in time.



Oh yeah. Garrett sent this along to me. (The part in italics.)

10 years ago it was 1995, and I was:
Starting my third year at New College. That year I became an RA in third court (the best court), and Dallas, Nate, Paul and I did our best Final Analysis work ever. I think that was also the year of Data Psychle. What a steaming load that was. But it was also the year of "Waiting for the Worms" if I'm not mistaken.
5 years ago it was 2000, and I was:
Moving in with Christie and Garrett. I was getting a taste of the first of the Truly Evil Winters. And I began to hope in earnest that maybe if I played my cards right, a certain East Timor activist I knew might go on a date with me.
1 year ago it was 2004, and I was:
Looking forward to spring semester, when I would finally get my first-ever creative writing class. It was as magnificent as I thought it would be.
Yesterday I:
Took my dog to the vet, since she had ripped open the stitches from her cyst-removal surgery. Now I've got a BrundleDog. (The vet said it would do no good to sew her back up. More on this tomorrow.)
