Periodical acoustic podcast: “Alone” by me and “Love Song” by Phil Taylor/Unborn

December 12th, 2009

My site has been down for about a week, so this is posting late, but here is this week’s podcast.

I chose to play “Alone” off my album “Triad,” and my friend Phil Taylor talked me into covering one of his songs.  I chose “Love Song” from his album “Tales of Love or the Lack Thereof” (recorded both by Phil and his former band Unborn).

I had a few moments of hitting the mic / other background noise on this.  I’m not sure why, but just in case you hear it and wonder.  😉

As usual, it’s me on my acoustic — no editing, recorded on a Sony ICD-SX700 voice recorder.

Listen now! “Unnatural” now has mp3s uploaded.

They are not new mp3s, but they are now available to listen to on the newly updated

These are low-fidelity recordings … unfortunately, I am not able to do large size files which trigger high bandwidth yet, but these will work for the time being.

Hopefully, I’ll have all the mp3s I had on the old site uploaded within a week or so.

So follow the link, take a listen, and use the awesome new commenting feature to let others know what you think! News Archive > January 3, 2006

Happy New Year everyone! I cannot believe it has been two years since I put this site online. Hopefully, this year will bring great things to my musical career. (Of course 🙂 )

As you have probably noticed, I have made a minor facelift to the front page in order to facilitate use of my site for the increased number of new users I am receiving (Thanks in great part to the Million Dollar Homepage). Let me know what you think of the updates.

I feel very confident now in my projects, and I hope to hit the studio heavily to pump out my new stuff, as well as new versions of the old songs from my “demo albums.” I’ll keep you posted. You’ll notice the songs I update will appear as underlined on the Albums/Projects page. News Archive > November 2, 2005

Well as some of you knew was coming I have posted a new feature to my site: FORUMS! Now you can spend all your time sending me commentary and such. Just a few notes I want to send across. First of all, remember, I can delete anything you post, or the entire Forums section very quickly, so I would appreciate your inabuse of it. Beyond that, the forums work as such: There are broad categories of discussions which you the users create, and within them there are infinite discussions. The topics (the categories) will be listed alphabetically (though I may change this eventually). The discussions under each topic will always be listed in the order they will be created. Also, the passwording system is not necessarily hacker proof, it is really only in place to prevent search engines from bastardizing the conversations within, as well as to distinguish between talking members. In other words, I don’t care if you hack it, but what is the point anyway?

Also, chances are the forums are buggy. I tried my best to find all known issues, but I really haven’t even finished the code formatting and commenting so I will likely find a few more. That is to say, you will likely find some too. If you do, and you can explain to me exactly what is happening, please do so so I can reproduce it. If you can’t, keep your mouth shut about it. I will be posting updates and upgrades periodically until everything is satisfactory.

In other news, I am so pleased with “The Holler Wind” that I have decided to make “Sneaky Whisper” entirely a compilation of banjo instrumentals. That might actually keep me more focused on it … Anyway enjoy all the new stuff ! News Archive > October 23, 2005

Finally, I have good news to share all around. First of all, the songwriter’s show I played in on Friday went very well, except that I skipped one line in “The Fish,” and I played a little fast. Otherwise, the performances I think were some of my best. I am pretty sure I’ll get at least one song on the show next Sunday. (It will be played at 4pm, 91.7FM U92 Morgantown–Listen to the webcast!) I have put lofis of the tape recordings I made up for you to listen to (please excuse the quality). You will find them on the individual song pages. (I played “The Bird,” “The Fish,” and “The Man.”

Also, I have new pictures because finally I got someone to take pictures of me at a show. Now that section of my site doesn’t seem so worthless. You may have also noticed that I added two new features to my site. You can now scale the web page to give you more visibility if you are using a higher resolution, and I have made a theme option so if you don’t like my color scheme, you can use another. I am having difficulty coming up with theme options too so if you have an idea, please let me know and I will add it.

The biggest news, however, is that Unnatural CDs are now on sale. Check out the Purchase CDs section of this site for information on how to get your copy ! News Archive > October 19, 2005

For anyone new to my site, welcome and hopefully everything is self explanatory. Drop me a line and let me know what you think. For everyone else, I think the Unnatural albums are just about ready (at least a few should be on sale by Tuesday [I hope … agh]).

Anyway, I am playing for a songwriter’s show in Morgantown this weekend. It is Friday evening in the Vandalia lounge of the Mountainlair, and I play at 11:30. I am going to play The Bird, The Fish, and The Man, in that order, so if you are going to be around, come watch me play. I could use the moral support.

Also, as I promised, as soon as I get things squared away with Unnatural, I am going to start selling singles of Lucky Town, so hopefully those will be available by December. News Archive > October 16, 2005

I have transmuted most of my frustration over the unpleasant transpirings of “The Abortion Prophecies,” enough to return them to this site. However, they are no longer an entity that is contemporary to this world and so this site has been whittled down to its original subject: me. The band Unborn is either no longer in existence or at least no longer connected to Poison Springs Records.

But for those of you who are interested in what’s left, I will have CDs for sale by October 25. My other projects are mostly in extremis because I have been working on a lot of little projects here and there. News Archive > July 15, 2005

I just want to thank everyone for their input on “Unnatural” and I am glad most of you are enjoying it. I just wanted to explain a few new features of my site. As you can see, there are more options on the left now. You will also notice that if one of these pages listed has changed in the last week, when you hover the mouse over it, the time since it was updated will display in the page title. Also, you will see at the top of this screen a note that says when I last updated anything at all. I did this to help you notice right away whether or not something is different. Let me know if these features enhance your visit(s). 🙂

Oh and happy Bastille Day yesterday … ! 14 juillet
