It appears that this podcast (FTP) has reverted to it's original form -- a blog. YOu see, Crescent is a'hungry and a'needy. I've been pouring 90% of my air time into production as well as marketing and promotion. I'm working my tail off and loving every second.

I'd be lying if I said I haven't been been fantasizing about kicking off the next episode of Filling the Page. There's been night's where I've almost hit record.

Keyword. Almost. Fantasizing is completely normal.

So, in the meantime, this podcast will mostly be a blog. I'm considering a temporary format change for FTP that will enable me to get it going again. It's funny; I feel I'm at a point in life where I've got the most to say about "filling the page," but I'm too busy doing the filling. ;-)

In other news, hats off to Mur Lafferty who is talked about on today!

And that is all for now folks.

I felt my baby kick tonight for the first time. Pretty awesome. Now if only the house doesn't blow away.

a super ninja quick quick update

Thu, 29 Mar 2007 06:50:34 PDT

Hey gang,

I wanted to get infront of a microphone last night and say all this...but I spent the time working on the new Crescent Promo and the fifth (extra special) Vignette. It's been a whole lotta Crescent for me lately. It's wild. Last August, when I embarked on Crescent, doesn't seem so far away. Really, it feels like it was just yesterday when I was put down the first few words of what was to be a writing side project.

Quick update:
1. New Crescent Vignette tomorrow with some news about the novel itself
2. I'm playing a solo set at Whitlows in Alrington next week (4.4.07) for all you DC Metro listeners. I'll post details next week.
3. New Bad Habit track next week.
4. Twenty-week ultra sound was awesome. I'll share a picture or two soon.


help a tee morris out

Thu, 15 Mar 2007 09:15:22 PDT


This is more or less word fo word from Mr. Morris' site.

If you weren’t aware of it, The Discovery Channel is holding an open call for fans to poke a little fun at their programming. It’s called YouSpoof Discovery and fans are pulling no punches in what they are submitting…

Neither are Paul Fischer, Martha Holloway, and Tee Morris.

Poking a little fun at Man Vs. Wild (a favorite of ours), Dancing Cat & Imagine That! Studios present Man Vs. Child where Science Fiction/Fantasy author and podcaster, Tee Morris, is left alone in his house with a 2-year-old while his wife runs errands. Armed only with household items and his wits, Tee is followed by a camera crew and gives tips on how to survive.

Their hope is to kick up some hype and get a high resolution-full screen presentation of this on Discovery for their next YouSpoof Special. So to get people talking, here’s what I'm asking of you once you watch this ten-minute video:

  1. post a comment on it at Lulu TV and make it one of your favorites. You need to find the orange on black “make favorite” text on the right. Then, you should get a slider bar above saying “click here to rate”. Clicking as close to the right side as you can will give us the highest possible rating.
  2. Pop this on
  3. Digg this at

The more attention you give these fine peeps, the higher our chances of appearing on Discovery. Enjoy the video, everyone! Stay tuned for more news concerning Man Vs. Child.

pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

An update for the faithful. It was my intention to do an FTP this week, but I have *a lot* going on. Here's a recap:

a new job (actually, 3 jobs in 1)
a new Crescent Vignette
production of Crescent
getting the Crescent manuscript ready for zee agents
PRBH album (2 new songs done)
Pharmacy Prophets show (big big rocka rocka)
Preggo wife (very cute and awesome)
sleep (uh, seriously?)

So, if you haven't seen me around on the intra-web-net-thingie, it's because any pockets of free time I might've had in the past are now brimming with things to do! That being said, there'll be a delay between now and the release of the next FTP. :) But, it will contain a Tee Morris interview, and that, at least, is worth the wait.

pharmacy prophets: Iota, March 16th

Mark your calendars. The Pharmacy Prophets will be at Iota on March 16th, along with Welbilt.

I'm sitting here, half asleep and thought I'd jot a few lines here. A fun weekend of working around the house and working on Crescent. I wrote the third part of the Vignettes series yesterday and I did the final edits on the first few chapters of Crescent the novel.

Jen can feel our little peanut moving around a lot now. It's totally exciting, but I'm a bit jealous, because I can't feel the wee one just yet.

And that's about it. Look for a new episode of Crescent Vignettes this week. :)

Happy Sunday!

episode 17: we did it in front of the mirror! happy birthday!

Wed, 21 Feb 2007 07:03:53 PST

Sound issues in this episode not limited to a 60hz hum, clipping, wonky levels, and alcohol abuse.

But herein lies a fun episode, I promise. Birthday parties rock. You know it.

Thanks for making this competition so worthwhile. Thanks to my competition, Laurence Simon, for making this last round such a great challenge.

Magically delicious show notes:

Lots of schtuff this week including but not limited to babies, Pickle Tales, inspiring footwear-type rant, voicemail (!), and podcast novels.

Pickle Tales - Get out and vote next week
Tee Morris' Billibub Baddings and the Case of the Singing Sword
Voicemail from Leann of Tag in the Seam
Crescent - Coming terrifyingly soon
Laurence Simon
- I must break him


shake shake shake!

Thu, 01 Feb 2007 07:31:58 PST

Well. The first edit/rewrite of the Crescent is done. The next round will include polishing and the hand-over to my first reader.


I finished the final chapter last night and was pleasantly surprised to be able to say - "Gee. I kinda like the way that ended." Well, those might not have been my words *exactly*. I probably said something to the effect of - "I'm so tired. This bed feels so good...and oh yeah, that didn't suck so much."

A reminder: next week is the final round of Pickle Tales (holy toledo!). Its down to me and the mighty, Laurence Simon. I suspect the gloves are off and things should be really, really entertaining.

Current research (milk-shooting-out-the-nostrils goodness):

Happy Monday, peeps.

I appear on the latest Barfly episode - go check it out. :)

Crescent - Coming this Spring

The feed is live.

Get on over to to subscribe to the Crescent feed. There's going to be a lot of cool stuff in the weeks leading up to the official roll out of my first [audio]book.

I think we're straightened out here, more or less

Fri, 26 Jan 2007 11:22:48 PST

Well, the sum total of the grief here was switching the act of switching from the old school blogger to the google powered blogger. I think every thing is back on track. Thanks to PG Holyfield and Zach Upton for a. discovering the problem (PG) b. pointing out when it had gotten worse (Zach).

And while I'm in a thankful mood -

Thanks to all you awesome people for voting me through to the final round of Pickle Tales.

That's all for now. If you're feeling unfufilled -- go hug a puppy.
