notmovingpictures Episode 042: Peruvian Politics From The Outside

With this episode I catch on what has been going on lately. I've been attempting to learn guitar and have actually came up with a riff for a future song. Another song is done and I'm waiting for Aaron to finish the mix on it and also how the Grand Slam of the Ok, So Story Slam went for me as well as the status of the zine that I am working on. I also delve into the murky waters of Peruvian politics and describe how their President is elected as well as who the candidates were this election. Of course it's not over yet, the second part of the process is a runoff between the top two vote getters. I ended up talking for longer than I thought I would so there you go.

Ten For Tuesday Episode 094: Eclecticity Anyone?

Well, this one is a day late but cut me some slack, I've been busy getting back into work after a short vacation. Vacations are never long enough no matter how long they are and work is............well, work. That's all I have to say about that. As for the music this episode, it is quite eclectic as in all over the place and these kinds are usually my favorite. Check it out.



Urge Overkill - Positive Bleeding
The Pixies - Monkey Gone To Heaven
Dramarama - Last Cigarette
The Crombies - It's Not You
The Last Slice - Chicks A Trip
The Clash with Ranking Roger - Rock The Casbah
The Expanders - Man Should Not Hold Back
Sugar - Hoover Dam
You Won't - Ya Ya Ya
Kanaku Y El Tigre - So Te Mueres Manana

Ten For Tuesday is a podcast dedicated to playing the music I couldn't find anywhere else. The music I like varies from style to style, genre to genre and era to era. You will hear punk, ska, rock, Americana, metal, country, rockabilly and more from all over the world. It doesn't matter if it's a major label or indie as long as I like it then it gets played. The motto is Less Talk More Music which means you won't hear me waxing poetic for fifteen minutes between songs. At TFT its all about the music...and me of course.

notmovingpictures Episode 041: Telling Stories

In preparation for the Grand Slam (which pits the monthly winners against each other)of the Ok, So Story Slam coming upon us rapidly I thought I'd tell a few stories. You see I'll be competing there on April 15th. To that end I recorded three tales from my life about my first bike ride, the time I flipped my car and going to see the Ska Against Racism tour in 1998. I also tacked on a story from the March Story Slam where I told a Sig Tau story about the Greek Games of 1984 at NSU. Of course once I started editing the stories and I found a much better way to tell the car wreck one. I'll keep that information stored away in the back of my brain so that I can use it later.

notmovingpictures Episode 040: The Vox Populi Connection

Episode 40 of notmovingpictures is my rambling tale of how I came to receive a demo tape from a band called Vox Populi that was from Shepherdstown, WV in 1995  and then reconnect with them over twenty years later all thanks to the internet age. It's also the story of that band told in their (or at least one of the members) own words. It just goes to show you it's never too late to find something or do something.

Iron Maiden at the BOK, Tulsa 2/26/16

So now of course I need to put up some pictures of Iron Maiden whose show I went to a mere three days after seeing Megadeth, this one though was in Tulsa. I was still trying to figure out the camera on my phone and we were in the nosebleed section so it doesn't always make for great pictures. Nor does the enormous group of cords hanging down from the rigging. It is what it is.
