things i’ve recorded for other people without being involved as a writer (and there are quite a few of those, with varying degrees of musical participation on my end) can be found in the extra-curricular activity section. i figure they deserve their own separate hangout.

if you want any of these CDs, i direct your attention over HERE.

there were also somewhere between 150 and 200 cassette tapes recorded between 1994 and 1998, before i had anything resembling a proper studio setup. they’re all very much albums too, but to make a dedicated page for each of them would be a herculean undertaking. maybe someday, when i have a ridiculous amount of time to kill, i’ll get around to that. for now, we’ll stick to things that have been “professionally” recorded. you probably don’t want to hear me at eleven years old improvising a concept album about a superhero with confidence issues and leaning heavily on my keyboard’s built-in demonstration songs anyway…but just so you know i’m not kidding about those tapes:

  1. i don’t know about that, man…but i do have a lot of hair, and i think that sometimes lets me get away with some thing i might not otherwise be able to. i can just slap someone with hair and they become blind to my true intentions.

    how’s life in toronto? is there an address i could send you some mail at, or should i stick with the restaurant address?
