breadsticks and wooden guns.

not a whole lot to report over here…the vampire sleep schedule made me pretty useless for a while, but now i have returned to the land of the living. i did find the digital still camera i almost forgot i had — i haven’t used it in a year or two now. there are about 200 pictures on it, some of which i had forgotten all about. here are a few of my favourites that were unearthed. yeah, i took a lot of pictures of myself. don’t axe me why, ’cause i don’t know.

there’s also a video function on this camera. the quality is pretty terrible, but about two years ago i used it a handful of times, just to get down ideas. a few things ended up on various cds, a few still need to be recorded, and a few i forgot ever existed. here they are in one place, mostly without any visual representation because i tended to record them late at night with the camera face-down.

the next video progress report will be along soon, closer to the end of october. i think it’s the best one yet (it’s definitely the longest so far), and i seem to have gotten the hang of the new video editing program. paint be praised.

  1. That little camera actually sounds alright. It has a cool low-fi feel to it, almost like an old leadbelly album. I always thought it would be cool to record an album in quality very similar to that.

    1. Love Leadbelly – one of my favourite bluesmen.

      I agree the sound is pretty good and personally it reminds me of some of the last mono albums from the 60’s. The instruments come across with plenty of “depth”, “warmth” – like analogue.

  2. damn you are a sexy beast. are you trying to give your readers heart attacks?!

    I enjoy the ukulele doodle– I hope all of these eventually get completed and put on some kinda album… I’m thinking “3am makeout sessions with a still camera”!

    1. if by “sexy beast” you mean “slightly malnourished grizzly bear”, i can definitely see the resemblance. also, i think that’s a great potential album title right there! and i like that peppy ukulele bit too. i can hear drums and stuff going on in there. i’ll have to take a crack at fleshing it out into a proper song.
