Well, I've been busy with a project of my own the past 6 months or so and I'm ready to share.  Turns out I ended up playing drums in a rock band.  Three old farts and one hotshot guitarist.  Of course at my age I don't take it too seriously.  In fact, everything about it has been completely contrary to the norm.  Oddly, not caring and doing everything the opposite of "the right way" has made things fall into place perfectly!  Fortunately for me, I get to utilize all my skills on this project.  I give you the band called, SLACKER.

I'm drumming on the video immersed in smoke but I'm also running the light show from the drum riser.  I spent 2 weeks setting the lights up and another week programming them, which I cued remotely.

Now, if you really want to see something strange, you've gotta check out the band website, which... um... strangely looks like this one.  The band and the site are run by the band's personal troll... a fat, grumpy, red troll with gas, named Guano.
Guano even has a Facebook page.  How can you not love that grisly face? The band rehearses in his cave and Guano deals with all of the band's affairs.  You can meet the troll at www.slackerband.com
A CD is out and is available on iTunes, CD Baby and all the other usual music download sites.
