Happy Spring 2018, Everyone!
Hello everyone, & a big welcome to all of you new fans who have come on board here since I last wrote (it has been a lot longer than I intended it to be, but here we are). A lot has happened since the end of 2017 & the beginning of this year. As usual for the past 2 years, the beginning of 2018 was looking rather uncertain, having caught that nasty flu in mid January, & having no new prospects for a regular day job, plus some health problems that were going in the wrong direction, but fortunately things are going much better now. I found a new job with a good company as a musical instrument technician, doing setup work on acoustic upright basses, it's so good that I wish I could have been there for the past 12 years instead of where I was! I got some medical stuff done & I'm better off than I thought (I originally thought I may have kidney disease), but it turns out I have high blood pressure instead, & that appears to be the only thing wrong with me physically, all other tests came out good. The medication my doctor gave me does the job thus far.
I'm now in the process of getting to a better place financially so I can keep up the good work with music, & in a more secure situation overall, so I can proceed with the plan for digital distribution of tunes, along with other things. A number of folks have been asking me "Where can I buy this stuff at?!", which is great, it's a good "problem" to have, so that is a big priority to finally get done (it's been the old story of 'If it ain't one thing, it's another'). Getting more income streams would be good because I can't afford a premium account anywhere currently, & those do have certain benefits.
Today I just put up another tune here, "Light Years Away", but had to take out "Shifting Sands Of Sumer part 2". I know some folks will still want to hear that tune, so here is a link to it:
"Shifting Sands Of Sumer #2- The HAARP Unit Live
The "new" tune added here, "Light Years Away", was the very first tune in the set I played live on the "At The Mountains Of Madness" radio show ages ago.
Naturally, I have lots of plans for working on new material as well, I've been working on some new recordings since early 2016. I'll have updates as things continue to develop. One thing I've been considering is doing internet live streams of my live performances, since the returns of going to outside venues are always diminishing.
For those of you that love comedy & satire, there is an old project that my other half & I collaborated on, here's some links:
Strictly Nosehairs On Tap (bio-hazard?!- page)

This is it until next time, thank all of you for being here & giving me the good feedback & appreciation, you really rock.
