1. I recorded and released records as The Reflectors from 2000 to 2010 (we’re on Spotify, iTunes, CDbaby, Bandcamp, etc…). Arcade Fire co-opted my homonym this year and has been touring as “The Reflektors,” so I resurrected my Reflectors to return the favor. Big HT to Lee Rosevere at Happy Puppy Records (happypuppyrecords) for the idea.

    Now I’m the lone Defender, 
    A dream that never fades, 
    And today became forever
    Inside these arcade flames. 

    Just remember I’ll be easily found, 
    ‘Cos you lit the place on fire, but never burned it down.

     
  2. From Brooklyn to New Orleans via Aldous Huxley, a track from my forthcoming record “transient lines.”

    "Take a holiday from reality whenever you like, and come back without so much as a headache or a mythology."
    - Brave New World (Aldous Huxley, 1932)

     
  3. Words of Release from my 2009 record, Goodbye Monday Blue. Peace, today, all.

Sketch for a painting and a graphic for a restaurant and bar called Krupa Grocery opening this fall in Brooklyn. Still working on my Gene Krupa likeness. He’s combined with Shiva - also a nod to those Eadweard Muybridge photos and to Krupa’s matchsticks drum solo in the movie, Ball of Fire.

  6. This week’s Disquiet Junto project had just one instruction:
    "The title of your next single is ‘Hyperloop.’ Now, record that single."

    I drew inspiration from an endless blue sky.
