My Musical Life in Tucson …

This is a short video I prepared when I had the very great honor of being nominated for the Buffalo Exchange Arts Award (which I then had the even greater honor of accepting). Having put it together, I realized it’s a nice summary of my musical life in Tucson since moving here in 2007. This includes live clips by Tim O’Grady, Hairless Cactus, AZPM, Krishna Bright, and Mystery Dave, with new footage shot by Shelly Black´╗┐.

It’s Time To Play “What Did I Order?”

Can you guess what I ordered?

Option #1: Air

Did I order about a cubic foot of air, prepackaged in 22 sealed plastic “EarthAware” bubbles? And did this order ship with some free razor blades in a small baggie for my convenience in letting the air out?

Option #2: Razor Blades

Or did I order some replacement blades for my Alvin Brass Bullet pencil sharpener, and they shipped with a truly batshit amount of packaging that proves that we, as a species, do not deserve nice things, like a planet?

CAN YOU GUESS IT OMG CAN YOU
