Striped Light


Check out this unofficial video for Gazelle Twin's song Obelisk. Its based on the utterly beguiling 1973 film "Holy Mountain" by Alejandro Jodorowsky

Flat Battery

My entire studio stopped working temporarily this week. At the heart of the studio is my digital console (Mackie DXB) which routes all the audio signals to and from the computer and the patch bays and then to all the equipment. And at the heart of the console is a tiny little battery and it transpires that this battery had gone flat and therefore my studio stopped working! Because of one tiny battery!

Anyway, thanks to a call out from a Mackie tech everything is back to normal. So I had a nice evening with Phil and Pete just listening to music all night. I had forgotten how good it is listening to OTHER peoples music

More Evidence

I don't know who put this compilation of clips together, but it works for me...

Mountain Boat

When I was last in LA I spent a lot of time driving round the hills looking at houses. One time I discovered these amazing wonked-out house pods up in Hollywood and fell in love with them. They were designed in the late 50s by Harry Gesner. Theres one for sale at the moment, $600K

Check out this video that I just found over on a great blog called JUST OFF MULLHOLLAND:
