episode 465 has landed, along with thoughts of mermaids and lost time. tonight's opening song is from the norway house album 912 - which leads to a few long-lost songs from me, and some gushing over two songs i love.


one is mermaids written by nick cave.


the other is origin of love from the musical hedwig and the angry inch. (music/lyrics by stephen trask). please note: i wrongly attributed the songwriting in the podcast. john cameron mitchell remains amazing, but he didn't write the song... ;)

episode 464 has arrived, along with songs from their self-title eponymous debut by kris hauch's band norway house. mixed in-between kris' songs, i also play a few of my own, and ramble on about how it feels to let go. especially when you don't want to, but have to. or, maybe more, how sometimes there's no other choice.


something like that.


you're invited to listen.


and there's more to come. please stay tuned.

if you want someone



episode 463 finds me at home, continuing to prep for a move, and enjoying the music of kris hauch (and his band norway house). this week's podcast centers around a few of my favorite songs from kris, and a few of my own that feel related.


subjectively, as i post this, tonight's songs seem to carry some hard-to-define sense of shared symmetry. or, maybe i'm making that up?? could be. whatever the cause, i'm happy this happened.


there'll be more soon. i'll keep you posted. i hope you'll listen.

episode 462 is a continued celebration of the podcast's ninth birthday. i'm very happy to share two new songs from me, written today, and also a few of my all-time favorites from nick guerrero and the mannequins.


as mentioned, my near-future is in transition. i'm taking it day by day, and will keep this site updated as things progress. if all goes well, there'll be be more next weekend!


i'm really happy you're here, and hope you'll listen.

episode 461 is our ninth anniversary podcast, posted amidst transition.


i hope you're well, and that you'll join me.

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



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



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.
