As promised…. The original guitar track was done on the Big Blue Guitar, run through an El Capistan & Boomerang III in the stereo fx loop of a pair of Quilter Labs MicroPro200 Ultralight amps.

Today, while digesting some delicious pizza I had for breakfast, I recorded the Native American flutes. The low E flute is a James Gilliland in black bamboo, and the high B flute is a lovely redwood by Dryad flutes.

Also, I did that art probably ten years ago. I don’t think I have the flute anymore. I definitely don’t have the beard or that much hair. (It’s shorter, not balder.) I certainly don’t have that belly!

As for the rest……

Today could be interesting.

At 9:45am I had some mushroom pizza for breakfast. Not even a whole piece. I figured that’d be enough. Been a while since pizza for breakfast.

Here it is, 11:30am. Recorded a little music, and now I’m hungry again. So I had another half a piece. For lunch.

I figure I’ll be on Jupiter by dinnertime. Will record soundtrack for later.

Tatiana Kazakova's Floating Worlds

on Behance, Facebook

Tatiana Kazakova is a graphic designer and illustrator based out of Moscow. Her unreal creations combine elements of the mundane with the fantastical, presenting strange images of flying saucers whizzing through ancient Japan, or floating islands of rock and ice sailing through abstract spaces. Most of Kazakova’s work begins as a pencil illustration or collage that is then edited and refined digitally, and the resulting otherworldly depictions are often featured in advertising campaigns, on book covers, and as clothing designs.

"This is a sideshot of the beautiful NATIONAL RESO-PHONIC GOLD DUECO 14 FRET Guitar. This is still available as a custom order. Rik Besser at B-Fantatic Guitarworks near Port Townsend, Washington does all of National’s frosted Dueco finishes. He achieves such sublime heights of jaw-dropping beauty, I am beside myself. National currently offers his "Vintage" grey-blue-green classic finish on the Dueco 12 Fret (which I have in stock now), and you can custom order Gold, Silver, and two-tone Root Beer or Espresso colored finishes. Man!”
I just ordered a Resorocket N from Catfish Keith. He’s the best guy I’ve dealt with for Nationals, and that Dueco is inCREDible.

Miles Davis covered in blood after an altercation with police

"Altercation" sounds so polite, like it was a mutual thing and not one man getting assaulted by the police. Miles got beat up by the police.
The cops assaulted Miles because he was black. He was standing outside Birdland where he just performed and was taking a break. His name was on the marquee. They saw him escort a white female friend from the club into a taxi and then they approached him after as he was taking a smoke break. The cops told him to “move on”. Miles said he was playing at the club and was on break. They weren’t hearing any of that. One cop then punched him in the stomach, while another one cracked him on the head with a nightstick. That’s why he’s covered in blood. He was a victim of police brutality.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

One of the more helpful and insightful things I’ve seen about depression/suicide in the last couple of days.

Yes, a thousand times, yes.

After Williams died, I thanked him for holding back the darkness for so long. Because that’s what it’s really about: It never goes away. It never stops. No matter what drug you do, or what drug you quit. No matter whether you talk to a therapist, a lover, or no one at all, so as to spare them. It’s. Always. There.

Waiting.
