It's hard to get kittens to sit still for photos.

Insomnia Puzzle

My boyfriend and I were up all night with our new cat, Biko. Which means "dear" in Igbo, a language spoken in Nigeria. We found him wondering the streets and he came up to us and hasn't left us alone since. We named him that because he's such a dear, sweet, loving cat. I'll try to post pictures soon. But, yeah, anyways, Jeremy and I came up with this song tonight because neither of us could sleep. It's a combination of 2 random samples I choose and altered, and 2 random samples he choose and altered. Enjoy?

P.S. Here is a picture of a random, evil washing machine that warns you to use it at your own risk. The risk I'm afraid I don't understand.

Do Not Chew Or Crush EP

All of this was recorded back when I had my old hard-drive. I just edited a couple of small things from the originals. "Lockjaw" features a Liberace sample and "Orange Horse" was recorded for Eloise. All-and-all, these songs were just fun to make. The theme here is insomnia.

Year Long Project

I got this idea from Grant not too long ago. And I thought I would start it this weekend since I'll be visiting Freda tomorrow. But Grant suggested I record an album out at Freda. I instantly knew I wanted to. But I didn't want it to be that simple, I wanted a different edge to the original idea. So I'm going to be taking this one slow. Real slow. I'm going to begin what I'm simply just calling "Freda" at this point this fall and then releasing it next fall. I want to capture Freda in every season. Broken leaf fractals of fall, the shivering slivers of winter, the summer sun, the flower-child energy of spring. I want to record each season as half of one side. A couple of songs for each season. I want this to be my best work yet. I'm going to take everything really slow and see how it goes. I'd like to hear about any ideas anyone has to offer. Mostly on what instruments I should use, some new angles/ideas, suggestions?
