Saving The Pandas, Raising The Bar


It’s been a good run for The Copper Revolution so far. I’d never tried to produce a theatrical, sci-fi-meets-steampunk piano rock show before, so this was something of a major gamble for me both artistically and professionally. Sure, I’ve been playing concerts for geeks for years now, but it felt like I was crossing over  … Read More »

The Economics of Pooping On Your Friends


We all do it. Something pisses us off and we need to tell the world- or at least our Twitter followers. The process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions is called catharsis and it’s a necessary mental function. Just like pooping is a necessary biological function. Bitching about something is  … Read More »

Mixing It Like The Foo Fighters


So like anyone with taste, I’ve become a huge fan of the Foo Fighters. On top of the fact that Dave Grohl’s a geek and a mind-blowing performer, the dude’s also got an amazing voice, their music is interesting without being overproduced, and it runs the gamut from hardcore to soft and passionate. You’ve also  … Read More »

The Most Dumberest Person In The World


I’m not kidding, this is an email I just got yesterday morning. And it was via my contact form, so it had to be a human being sending this to me. I added emphasis just to point out how special-needs this person is… From: Dana Ariel <dana@thesalonoutlet.com> Subject: Sponsored Blog Post in the Beauty Vertical  … Read More »

The Three-Con Report


Runtt and I played three conventions in three consecutive weeks, each one with a different theme. Normally people write a post-con wrap-up after each weekend getaway, but chances are good most people don’t hit one every week! I’ve got photos from some of them, so click the big pictures to get to the galleries. Furthemore  … Read More »

Anyone Want A Cat?


UPDATE: Murphy now has a new home! Thanks to everyone who scoured their networks helping me find the right family to make him a part of. I’ll post a more detailed update later, but at this point my Adorable Fatball is happily weighing down someone else’s couch. Anyone want the World’s Most Adorable Cat™? In  … Read More »

The Copper Evolution


After months of fine-tuning (a never-ending process, actually), we finally debuted the new live show, The Copper Revolution. Runtt, the robots, and I were joined by bassist Matt Pompei for the first crash site (Boston), and then managed to crash once again just a week later in Chattanooga. After two shows, the reception is already  … Read More »

Riley Carbaugh: Animating The Revolution


If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then the three-minute concert intro being created by Canine Hybrid Creations is worth over four million words. And all of those words are “awesome”. Riley, the brains, pen, and smile behind Canine Hybrid, is the closest thing to an indie musician you can get without the music: She’s  … Read More »

Twas the Week Before Christmas


‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through the ship how the coffee was flowing at a blistering drip. The BMF drive was filled up with charges and both of the cargo bays packed full like barges. But while Captain Ebel slept soundly, like Runtt, the life support system was being a bastard. It seems  … Read More »
