JJ Abrams' Mystery Box

JJ Abrams is now one of my new favorite people. I've enjoyed some of his work (specifically "Lost"), but after watching this lecture, I've found that he is an energetic, intelligent, and brilliantly creative fellow. Check it out!

Jennfier Egan

I just came across this website after reading about it in the New York Times this morning. Very cool and very interesting in regards to writing. Egan creates short, spirited narratives that (surely) serve as the germination for longer stories. Good stuff!

FAWM 2010

So, here it is again: February Album Writing Month (FAWM). I've participated in this challenge three times before, and each year I produce better songs, so I'm excited about FAWM 2010. The challenge: Write and record 14 songs in 28 days -- one song every two days for the entire month of February. I will post my demos (very rough demos) on My Space at

I welcome constructive comments.

UPDATE: Damn, this is difficult. So I've written and recorded three "songs," so I'm on track, but, man, they kind of suck. Good little elements in each, but overall, they just don't come together. Anyway, I'll post them soon.
