Adrift


This is something I did a few years ago when I first started messing around with FLstudio. 

It was inspired by some 8mm home movies that my Mother had transferred to digital. 

Quite a bit of it was damaged from sitting in an attic for many years but you could still see random images floating through here and there. 

Quite disturbing looking to say the least. 

A lot of it was taken at various trips to large bodies of water so that is the basic theme of this project. 

Mostly about melancholy memories, dead loved ones and possibly what it would feel like to be swept out to sea.

John Wesley Band 3/22/14


John Wesley Band supporting Anathema March 22, 2014 at the State Theater St. Petersburg, FL.

Playing heavily from the new album Disconnect due for release on April 1st, 2014


In addition to an extensive solo career John has toured and worked with many progressive rock acts including Fish, Marillion and Porcupine Tree. 

Supporting the band on bass was Sean Malone of Miami prog band Cynic. 

After the set, as Anathema was about to take the stage, I turned to see John Standing right beside me. He offered a handshake and I accepted. He thanked me for being there. Great guy, great new album. 

If you are in the area there is a free Disconnect CD release party with an in store performance and signing with John Wesley on lead guitar and vocals and Ian Medhurst on backing vocals and acoustic guitar on Tuesday April 1st at Daddy Cool Records in St. Petersburg, FL at 6 pm.

Throw a HypnoKat at it




Pets are fun. 

Like last night for instance. One of my cats, we'll call her cat A, was eating another of our cats, we'll call her cat B, food. I kept yelling at cat A to stop but she wasn't even bothering to acknowledge my existence. Cat B was laying right beside me watching cat A eat her food. Without thinking I picked up cat B and tossed her at cat A. Cat A bolted and cat B started eating from her designated bowl. That's the cool thing about cats and why I personally might prefer them to dogs. You can sometimes throw a cat at a problem and it will figure out how to solve it before it gets there. If you toss a dog at something all you have essentially done is created a slobbering fur bomb.

Please spay, neuter and adopt. 

and

Please don't get a pet if you are unwilling or unable to make them a part of your family and commit to the rest of their lives.


A short video I made of one of our adopted cats. I plan on redoing the sound for this because I just lazily ganked it off the internets.



P.S. HypnoKat is cat B.
