1k feature film

i want you to know, i want you all to know, that the movie is looking badass...and i CAN'T WAIT to start working on the soundtrack...oh wait, that's already begun ;-)


how's your mom?

POC i made for v day

out of the ashes

so, after some bizarre computer issues i think i am finally back on track. so we'll be seeing new smashcut content very soon. the only hurdle left is to recreate all the bumpers, etc...but it can be done. stay tuned!!!

getting back on track

it feels good to get back on track. for the holidays i let myself spiral out of the contracts and schedules i had set for myself. that's ok, everyone needs some breathing room (especially when creativity is at hand) as not to burn out. sometimes though, it's hard to remember that you had a schedule before you got so...lazy. finding that again is like a great big gift to yourself. it's a budget...for your time. want to do something? put it in the budget. write it down (fans of david allen's book getting things done will know what i am talking about here.) things that once seemed daunting turn into one step here, one step there, nothing to worry about.

some things you're going to hear from me soon... click read more for the details

insomnia induced musical craziness

it sucks having a cold
it sucks having a cold and you cough and it gives you insomnia
even more that everything you have tried to take won't fix it

it also sucks that while in the throws of insomnia you happen to remember this band in the 90s who you thought was so awesome and saw them live twice. only you can't remember the name of the band, or the name of any of the songs.

they might have played with the meices once, around 94, 95 and maybe played with dink 95, 96.

they had a song about the creator of the shopping mall, and quite possible someone in the band wore traditional native american garb? (maybe the drummer? )

that last bit sounds odd so it may or may not be true.

but damnit for some reason i want to hear that song about shopping malls, even though i have no idea what it sounded like.

if anyone knows of this band and can decipher all of this and tell me who it is...thank you!

please, i need help...

an update on the korg ds 10, and another video

so the korg ds 10 cartridge for the nintendo ds has been pushed back until october 14th. i'm seriously thinking about getting a homebrew cart so i can play with this now...

still have my preorder.

this is a very serious tool, and not just a tool. watch the below video and see if you can't imagine having a few people together, one on bass, one on leads, a couple on drums, and a lead. this is amazing stuff (if i did it right, the below link should be high quality.)

korg ds cartridge comes out sept 29th, pre-orders starting now.


so yeah, i'm totally stoked.

Two patchable dual-oscillator analog synth simulator, -part drum machine that uses sounds created with the analog synth simulator? check.

Six-track (analog synth x 2, drum machine x 4) /16-step sequencer, Delay, chorus, and flanger sound effects available from the mixing board? check.

Three different note-entry modes: Touch Screen control, keyboard screen, and matrix screen? check.

Real-time sound control mode via Touch Screen control,Exchange sounds and songs and play with up to eight units simultaneously through a wireless communications link? check?

39.99? i'm definitely there.

i can't believe this is an actual nintendo ds production cartridge, and not some hack. this is great.

dark primitive

so as promised i posted the first of what i hope to be a few sets this month to make up for the dry summer. what you get is a really dark as hell set of cutting edge DnB. i stuck with a small crate for this, just because it made sense for the feeling i was trying to get across.

friends, this is some heavy heavy shit...
