04.14.08>> I've been super busy as you can see by my last post below. WOW! Has it really been that long? Well the site is being redesigned, Conference was pretty good fun this year, and I was gone for 8 months last year. And now if you try to contact me through my email address you won't be able to. I am disabling the address. My email has been spoofed and is being used as a cover to send SPAM for Cialis and Viagra. So if you are trying to trace back the source for one of these SPAM mails, it is not really me. I am tracking down the person or persons responsible and they will be delt with... trust me. Sorry for the inconvenience though.

01.30.07>> New hosting is here! I should now not have the problems I used to :-)

01.20.07>> New hosting is coming shortly, so this site may be out of contact for a day or two.

01.10.07>> So yeah... I skipped an entire year of putting stuff up on this site. 2006 in summation included being busy and not so busy. WMC 2006 was a lot of work, but a lot of fun. Locals Only 2006 was a hit, and I'm working on Locals Only 2007 as I write this! Mostly I worked on production, and being a perfectionist, alot is still not done. Some mixes I recorded will be uploaded soon (yeah, sooooon), and I promise to update more often. Oh, and Happy New Year!... again.
