AFCS: (Automatic Flight Control System)

This is a fairly crappy photo of my new painting for the children's book I'm working on. This is the left hand page of a full color spread. His sled is being lifted in the air by lots of clumsy birds. We've all been there... don't forget to equalize.

Quick little ditty called "Rain" I wrote today for my upcoming music project. I just recorded it quick with my macbook. I think I'll add banjo later, omit the guitar solo and make it a harmonica solo instead. My musical provisions are a bit limited at the moment.

Come And Lie Down

Josie and I wrote a song over Skype a month or so ago. I recorded my parts quickly first, sent the file to her, then had her send her tracks back to me, then I mixed them a bit. It was a fun experiment that I had been wanting to try. I hope to re-record a better version of it in the future. It also gave me a chance to practice the harmonica a bit. I've been trying to teach myself here and there in some of my free time. It's much more convenient to carry around than a guitar. I also think it's one of those instruments that people think is easy to play but really isn't. Like the triangle.

Anyway, here's a link to our Reverbnation. I guess this is better than myspace now? Someone help? The song is called "Come and Lie Down"
