Unrelated Passages, et al

I will soon release Unrelated Passages, as well as a couple of ep's; one of atmospheric guitar sounds and the other comprised mostly of noise. These releases come about as a result of a couple of months worth of organizing files from various hard drives. Most of this was recorded years ago and forgotten due to a computer meltdown. Unrelated Passages is a compilation of songs recorded between 2004 through 2009. A collection that came together very slowly as songs were birthed. Only now have I found the time to organize these songs in an order I find acceptable. All of the songs were created in different places on different equipment at different times, but the songs seem to come together to form a cohesive listen. You can judge for yourself as soon as I make it available for download, which will be soon. I have tentative plans to also make the releases I put out on cd-r years ago available for download.

e.e. cummings

My daughter and I on a recent trip to the library found a book of poems by e.e. cummings titled Hist Whist and Other Poems for Children. Contained within we found this resonating little gem(reproduced exactly):
