Upcoming Shows


We’re well into the new year now but I’m still technically on vacation. I’m trying to get caught up on email and a lot of things I’ve been putting off forever. Also my WordPress 2.0 upgrade is still breaking in places (such as the full text RSS feed).

2005 was a pretty big one for me, a lot more action-packed than usual. A lot of life developments as well as a remix album as well as starting to play live (which has gone nicely so far thanks to the help of Bruce, Richard and Rob.)

I’m not generally into New Years resolutions, but I have a few music-related goals this year:

1. Finish my next album. I’ve been a bit paralyzed by even the minor expectations that it not completely blow. When I started doing music I was totally alone and there was little to no risk. Now there’s a bit more and I guess I’m a huge baby who can’t handle anything. Anyhow, this year I’ll try to plow ahead regardless. And when people tell me my old stuff was better I’ll become a Scientologist.

2. Blog better. I was blogging a lot about the music industry (particularly the online aspect) but in the past year I’ve become completely exhausted by it. I find most anti-RIAA and anti-DRM rants depressing these days and any time I go to blog one I eventually wind up quitting half way through. I’ll try to find something else to fill the void but it may all be about Katamari Damacy.

3. Try to make some actual money. Through being a scaredy-cat and doing everything on my own and maybe some decent planning along the way, I’m not in the hole like a lot of my musician friends, but trying to justify spending the amount of time I do on this is getting more and more hilarious. In 2006 I would like Brad Sucks to be bought by Google or Yahoo! or even Ask Jeeves as the first ever Search Engine House Band. Which would be the true start of Music Industry 2.0.

Anyway, hope you all have a great 2006.

I think 2006 should be the year you write a sequel to that super amazing OfficMax article, because that shit is HOT, even a year later.

Oh, I agree, if he’s talking about the officeMax article I think he’s talking about. Meanwhile, you wouldn’t hear any complaints from me if all you ever talked about was Katamari Damacy.

If you don’t want people to tell you that your old stuff was better, just turn off comments.

Really though, looking forward to the new stuff. Good luck with it.

Just wondering how the Magnatune deal is working out for you? Will the next album be a Magnatune release, or are you going to try s different means of distribution?
