Chris Cornell - 9:30 Club - 2009

Chris Cornell
9:30 Club - 2009 - Staring through me.

RIP

Lights are out on the best pipes in the
rock business. It's a sad day.

 

What's New... Wow, so much—too much. Yet save a reaction to the death of Scott Weiland, I haven't been here for two years. Now both of my favorite voices are gone, BOOM. There will never be new art from either of them. Ouch.

   
  Why You're Here... Hopefully for music and images, and the occasional shot of blu(e), as there's little else to be found. You might find your mug in the gallery, but only if I knew and liked you years ago, because I am waayyyy behind. Blame Facebook, though the pics there are very different from what I (used to) post here! I doubt I'll ever add new ones, but never say never.
   
What Pays the Bills (One of the Reasons
I Wake Up Each Morning)...
Creative Direction, (Marketing/Advertising)—specifically design, copywriting and photography—for clients around the globe. I brand, draw, design and photograph all sorts of things you might see or hear, while managing pesky budgets and staying current (I've a love/hate relationship with pop culture). Did my agency time for cred and went out on my own 19 years ago (wow)... I've a six-billed hat on but it fits! Art, photography and writing are deep loves, and I'm thankful they've also paid my bills all these years.
     

The Other (More Important) Reason I Wake Up... Music — everything about it and all kinds of it. As you'll learn elsewhere on this site, I'm partial to British rock and funk. Faves include the Beatles, Stone Temple Pilots, doves, Earth Wind & Fire, Cake, dada, Parliament, BRMC, Jerry Riopelle, The Old Ceremony, Soul Coughing, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers (The Refreshments), Radiohead, Chris Cornell, The Hives and The Stone Roses and all things lounge and chill the likes of Gotan Project, St. Germain, Thievery Corporation, Joi and Lemon Jelly. See the Top 100 if you want more. I also sing, play keyboards and used to be a club DJ... read: obsessed. Rules my life, keeps me young!

play Drink,B*tch!
A Bit on This Space... This site started out as a six-paragraph joke in late 1996, when I felt the need to publicly question the relevance of a website for Peeps (yes, the marshmallow chicks). It was a different internet back then. Two months later it became a means of providing music leads for friends who were always asking me what new music I was listening to and would suggest they buy. Two years later it became a means of providing images for family and friends in one central spot—way ahead of mostly creepy personal blogs, and similar to today's social networksand providing concert reviews for my live-music-loving friends. It's honestly not changed much since! Save minor organizational changes, it will likely always look this way, regardless of my prowess on the job. Don't look here for snazzy web design; my attention's on the real world and I'm lucky if I get in here to update things more than once a year. There will also never be a blog for countless reasons. As Facebook continues to get more hostile and annoying, it's possible I'll go back to offering my two musical pennies here to feed my old DJ jones, or to supply silly downloads and snapshots of life. I've always done it all for friends and family scattered across the globe, though I've appreciated you outer-circle visitors and some of your kooky comments! (Makes all the time I spent here worth it.) If the site ever looks better than this, you'll know I have way too much time on my hands and am probably looking for work. Or I retired! :-)
