I need a public relations spokesperson

I've decided, like all celebrities and/or famous/rich people, I need a PR person to spin things for me. Example: they can explain to my boss via press release that I wasn't "late for work", I was actually "focusing my energies elsewhere" and being "tangentially productive" (I'm copyrighting "tangentially productive" btw). They'll have a limited budget to work with however, and they'll be paid with canned soup and newspaper coupons. So it's really more of an entry level position*, but you gotta start somewhere.

*Note: I refrained from making a juvenile joke/double entendre about "entry level position." You don't know how hard it was.**

**Note on the note: I again refrained, and refused to run wild with "how hard it was". As you can see, my discipline knows no bounds.

So, a fellow blogger who lives in Old Blighty turned me on to Soundcloud. It's essentially a music sharing site where you can upload your tracks and folks can listen to, and download them, for free. So, if you like any of the the music I've recorded in my little studio (ok, it's a Macbook in my den with a Fender P-bass and Stratocaster plugged into it) in the previous post, you can follow this link and download any of the songs that you may find appealing. Ciao!


New Music and the movie Drive

OK, so I saw the movie "Drive" a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. It was this beautiful amalgamation of gritty 70's movies, early Michael Mann, early 80's European crime flicks (think Long Good Friday), and maybe even a bit of Sergio Leonne stuff. Anyways, loved it. I also really enjoyed the soundtrack because it had this very cool (again) early 80's Euro/Michael Mann feel to it. Giorgio Moroder-esque in a way. So, I was inspired and came up with V832V. No guitars, just bass, drum, and keyboards. I also, once again, remixed and added to Just Like the Sun. I always liked it, but it felt incomplete. So I went with an assault of guitars for the second half of the song, and now, I think its as it was meant to be. There's nothing layers upon layers of over driven, effects laden guitars can't improve upon!
