The Bullies Are Always Wrong

As a former theater/choir kid who wasn’t exactly a model of popularity growing up, I believe it is very important that you watch this. I made my contribution to the anti-bullying sentiment three years ago with a song called When Consequences Come. I wasn’t made aware of this issue because it’s a popular internet celebricause,

On The Culmination of a Technological Dream: GPE Live

It seems a little weird that, less than a year after releasing a new album, I would spend so much time and energy on a disc I launched back in 2007. And yet there I was on stage last Saturday in San Jose, warming up what I could only describe as a thousand-robot ballet. Every

Creativity Part Two: Inviting Others Into Your Reality

In my last post about creativity I introduced you to my imaginary friend, Fazaar. He lives in a thoroughly constructed world that I’ve been building inside my head for the past twenty years. Now what? What’s the purpose of all this detail and what are my responsibilities to this being whom, for all intents and

Creativity Part One: Creating Your Own Reality

I still had an imaginary friend in College, his name is Fazaar. He is a six-foot-tall osprey that drinks too much and is a cynical bastard.

I’m no Nate Silver, but I do pay attention to politics as best I can. Here’s what I’ve learned about running

Election Day and The Volunteer Army

Yesterday our seventh door-to-door canvasser arrived, bringing the tally to Obama: 7, Romney: 0. This one even brought dog treats since so many houses employ fluff-based internal alarm systems. The Obama canvassers have run the gamut from older ladies with silver hair to college students; even one of our state representatives stopped by on the

42 Years And Counting

42 is a good number. Can you imagine waking up next to the same person every morning for 42 years? Can you even imagine working for the same company for 42 years? Or picture a startup company even lasting that long? How about living in the same town? Drinking the same brand of beer? Could
