tennis in tokyo


friends,

 

i had the happy opportunity to visit the napa film festival last night, and was able to attend a screening of the upcoming film "big in japan" (featuring the band tennis pro). i've shared tennis pro's music on the podcast a few times before, and their songs've been on my mind all day. the movie, and their music, are simply great, and i'll share updates here when the film is more widely available.

 

in the meantime, there's tonight's podcast - episode 423! it's me with a few of my favorite tennis pro songs, and some thoughts about the value of sharing creativity with others.

 

i hope you'll listen!

love,

the path taken


friends,

 

i'm here a bit early this week with episode 421. it's not much of a podcast - just me with some songs from 2012, and some thoughts about the experience of growing up, change, disappointment, consciousness, et. al. life itself, i suppose. i apologize for the slipshod nature of things tonight. i promise to keep thinking, and to bring something more complete next week.

 

in the meantime, my continued thank you's go out to ryan, ann-marie, and justin, for their contribution to episode 420. if you aren't already aware, you can support ryan's music by buying his latest project here (his songs are great, and $5 is far beyond a deal).

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,
russell

macbeth


friends,

 

episode 420 is here, along with some brand new music from ryan (aka dwayne hoover), ann-marie, and justin case. the songs are excellent, and i'm honored to be able to share them here. even more, i'm excited to see where and how they evolve with time.

 

in and around the music, there's me - meandering a bit about shakespeare's play macbeth... wondering and thinking about things that feel connected. life itself. embarasssingly. unavoidably.

my heartfelt thanks go out to ryan, ann-marie, and justin, for sharing their work with me. and to you for being here. i really hope you'll listen.

 

love,
russell
