Arrival by Brock Grossman

HOSTP Art: “Arrival” by Brock Grossman

Having just arrived in the early 2000’s, Captain Ebel and his robot first officer, Prodo-1, have to scour the city of San Diego for the extinct species they came to find. However, they can’t very well land a starship in the middle of town, can they? This piece is one of the works that’ll be

You’re Not Good Enough

“You’re not good enough.” I thought I’d shut that voice off years ago, back when podcasting was the shiny new thing that had to be explained to the parents. And yet I hear him now and again, whispering bitter nothings of discouragement at the most inopportune times. “You’re nothing special; there are a thousand musicians

Two Days at Mad Oak

So the last two days have been something amazing. My powers of articulation fail me, so I’ll just read the transcript of the little man upstairs in my head that’s been doing cartwheels for 48 hours. “HolyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitAWWYEEEAHholyshitholyshitholyshit…” Actually, it goes on like that for twelve pages. And that was just the first day. I’ll spare

HOSTP-Still-Backing

It’s Slacker-Backer Time!

So if you hadn’t noticed, we made it to about 300% of our initial goal on Kickstarter! But now what? Well, until we get all the goodies assembled we can still take backers who may have missed the month-long campaign.

A First Look at Mad Oak Studios

I believe in the same rule that Alton Brown has for homebrew supply stores: If it looks slick and well-decorated, you probably don’t want to be there. Mad Oak Studios just moved to a new building in Allston, MA, so when I headed there to scope the place out in person, it took me twenty

Live at Tiny Ninja Café

Slap Me On Vinyl And Call Me Captain

I had an awesome time in Seattle last Friday night! Tiny Ninja Café (now called the Stone Way Café, apparently) is a beautiful place with the most amazing backdrop I’ve ever performed in front of. The people that filled the Café were a hell of a lot of fun to play for, and now some

Hiding Behind My Hand

Creating a New Genre is a Serious Gamble

Sometimes it frightens me what my fans give me the courage to attempt. I’m trying to stay calm and collected about this whole High Orbit Saves The Pandas thing, but underneath I’m chewing my fingernails down to the cuticle. What the hell was I thinking trying to cram science fiction, rock music, and comedy into
