In Memory of Christopher Hitchens

Just two weeks ago, we lost one of the greatest minds of our time.  If you are or are not familiar with Hitchens’ passionate arguments against tyranny, fascism, dogmatism and religious zealotry, enjoy this montage. Thankfully, science and technology have granted us an extension of our mortality, in that our words, actions and works may be captured and saved for generations to come.

Nature’s Bed Warmers

This is how Wellington is in our bed, except for the fact that he is completely buried under the covers.

The Reason for the Season

On December 25th, the god Mithras was born to a virgin. He would later be killed & then resurrected 3 days later; all of this happening several hundred years before Jesus. Enjoy your holiday.

Proper Credit

I don’t care if listeners know I worked on a record. Most of them are only concerned with whether or not they like the song. Those that do care about credits will do the research and figure it out. I also don’t tag and stamp my tracks. If you use my stuff without permission, I call my lawyer. So long as the people who cut the checks know my work, I’m good. Furthermore, I’ve always found it tacky for producers names or voices to be heard on records. I understand that people don’t read liner notes any more (if they even exist) and so it may be tempting for a beatmaker to have his name shouted on a record, but I make my living doing what I do. For many, that shout out is their only payment, so I don’t begrudge them. But for me, I let the artist shine.

All that being said, if you’re going to credit me, get it right. I would rather you not credit me at all if you’re going to misspell my name, credit someone else for my work, credit everyone else for their contributions while omitting mine, or credit me for something I didn’t do. Errors like these are unprofessional, and I don’t want to be associated with Bush League projects. Read the contract or the invoice. If you have any questions, send an e-mail. Pick up the phone. Do yourself a service and get it right.

Out front of Depth Charge Studios with Nikki Jean

So I'm out running errands when I return to find my wife shooting pictures of Nikki and her new scarf out front of the studio.


I apparently was in a hurry to get back to work (imagine that) and left Nikki hanging for the second shot. Sorry darling.
