Introducing the Officer’s Club

I can’t do this alone. Every captain needs a crew that’s backing him up and defending the ship against alien pirates, toxic space putty, and decaf.

My Thoughts on Vision

There will always be people of limited vision telling us what’s impossible. I’ve planted my hopes and dreams in the fertile fields of sci-fi, fantasy, furry, and music because they are, by definition, the realms of unfettered vision. The kinds of people who dream of the impossible seem to inspire those who shave off the

Congrats! High Orbit Saves The Pandas by Matthew Ebel is now playing on Pandora.

High Orbit Saves The Pandora

It’s hard to believe that it was two months ago I asked for help from the Robot Army to storm the gates of Pandora Radio.

Proud Times Magazine - Issue 11 Cover

On the Cover of Proud Times Magazine

Spokane’s Proud Times, an LGBT-focused culture magazine, recently interviewed me about music, life, sexuality, and outer space. It’s probably the first time I’ve ever been really open about my sexuality in a media interview, though most of the focus was on music, life in Spokane, and growing up as a geek. The entire magazine, with

Old tapes

The Treasure Trove of Memories I’ve Tried to Forget

While on vacation in Seattle, my mother uncovered an enormous box of old tapes, mostly mine. Some of them date back to my first days as a sentient human being, but most of them are early recordings of stuff I wrote or performed in my teenage years. She seemed only too happy to cue them
