Saturday, May 18th marks the debut of a side project I’ve been working on with guitarist, Pauli Gray, called Shot in the Dark. Pauli comes from a hard rock/punk perspective in his guitar playing and I of course am all about the synthesizer. We decided to meet in the middle with out influences, and so we’ve put together songs built on an electronic rhythm section with hard rock guitar to roughen up the edges. Vocals tend to be a bit punk and we’ve got touches of dark wave and industrial thrown in for good measure. The goal is to keep it high energy and fun. It all takes place at Wild Side West in San Francisco with a start time around 6 pm. It’s also a fundraiser for AIDS LifeCycle. It would be great to see you there!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show on Tuesday, October 4th! It was a completely enjoyable evening, having the chance to play some music, spend some time with friends and make a few new ones.

In the past 72 hours I have:
- Donated supplies to the Occupy San Franciso base camp.
- Eaten wasabi coated roasted seaweed. Yum!
- Been amazed at how well my 4 yr old can swing on his own.
- Completed 7 videos to accompany my live performance at El Rio on Tuesday October, 4th (7 pm sharp, in case you are wondering).
- Engaged in melee combat with 4 other fighters, all of us armed with bokkens. I was defeated in every single round.
- Completed many loads of laundry and dishes.
- Practiced music for my El Rio show and also the show I will be playing in Second Life tomorrow afternoon.
- Promised my 11 yr old that this afternoon when he gets home from school I will play the level of VVVVVV he created.
- Hiked up Mori Point and marveled at the color of the ocean.
- Read about an Oklahoma woman, a mother to 11 children, who is now attending Harvard and thought to myself, “I should be doing more.”
