Speaking of music, do yourself a service and go listen to the new tracks by the Recreation Station! My favorites are Fighting to Standing, Departed, and We Ain’t Quittin’. (Equal parts full disclosure and family pride – this is my brother’s project.)

Run for the Hills.

Did you know that my brother is my favorite musician? He can be yours too! Here’s one of his newest videos with his band The Recreation Station. I love it.

Hiding the office in the studio.

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

They’ve started showing our apartment to potential renters. I haven’t mentioned it here yet, but I’m moving. Anyway, before they started taking people through, I decided to pack up my home office which was located on our kitchen counter, next to the sink, where our frinternet signal was the strongest. I thought it might look a little tacky to have a computer, scanner, wacom tablet, hard drive, and other office miscellany spread out where there should be toasters and cookie jars and a Slap Chop. So as long as our home is on display, I’ve kept my scanner (etc) in my studio, where one might say it belongs, and can’t really be bothered to move it all back and forth to scan my comic. Which means I haven’t been drawing my comic. Which means I haven’t been drawing at all (yikes).

So that’s my latest excuse! I’ll hopefully get back on track soon, although July and August are incredibly busy for me, so comics may be only occasional. We’ll see.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t listened yet, check out my brother’s songs!

Ooh cool – my favorite musician just put the bulk of his catalog online. Who am I talking about? My brother Shawn of course! I highly recommend you peruse at Recreation Station Music. Previews of the upcoming Recreation Station EP, along with all kinds of previous projects including Author & Autopilot, Pilot & Painter, Super Budgies, Family Band, and other solo miscellany. If you’re not sure where to start, I’ve picked out a few highlights and posted them here:

End is Near – Gorgeous new song.

Long Dark Road – We played this at our Mother Fools show, but this version has a whole new life.

Stegabach – This is an instrumental track. It’s best if you listen to it and imagine a big dopey brontosaurus tromping around. I love it.

Failure and Back – A track from the garage band era. Super catchy… represents the breadth part of the portfolio 🙂 He can do it all!
