elysium


friends,

 

episode 460 revolves around two new songs, and a search for a kind of peace. amidst the grind of daily survival, i remain hopeful that there's a balance, somewhere, between the heartbreaking facts, and our more lofty dreams. only time will tell, i suppose. or know.

 

but cheers to hope. <3

pennies from heaven


friends,

 

episode 459 features more new songs from ryan (aka dwayne hoover), a new version of a song from me, and some thoughts about imagination, the great depression, and how art offers a way out - both then and now, and in good, and questionable, ways.

 

the toxicological/synergetic possibility of these opposites interests me.

 

i hope you'll listen.

fine lines


friends,

 

quite happily, episode 458 brings us more new music from ryan (aka dwayne hoover). the opening song (blue sky) is from the album "ham," and the other two songs (my gas tank is empty, zirconium) are from the play "truth in context." my attempt at appreciation is mixed in around the edges, along with a slightly-new version of one of my older songs.

 

you're invited to listen.

 

i really hope you will.

 

<3
