LOTD: video: How To Create A Baby Headed Dancing Frog & news

I have had many important video and link posts but concurrently, I have been working so much that I have not had much time to post.... one of the NON-important posts to further distract you from the worldly violence, gas prices, crimes of government, food poisoning and bad humour (yes... spelled that way) is a link I have sat on for a week's time.


There are quite a number of entertaining and sometimes even educational and useful videos on
The one I have chosen would certainly fall under the mildly entertaining category or even perhaps the "I am on the web on my phone and on the toilet and there are no magazines present at in this stall located in the Berlin Subway system this evening".


btw, a few more notes for you

Tuesday evening, the 22nd @ The Saddle Ranch @ Universal City Walk, I will be performing with a bunch of fun folks for LUV JAM 5. This is a free event where people from Universal Studios attempt to cover songs you may or may not know. It is always a fun time! info:

East Coast, yo!
While Botanica is no longer doing a US tour due to some issues on the end of Firewater's booking, I will still be DJing and possibly doing an acoustic guitar gig in Philadelphia, NYC and a few other spots on the east coast from May 2nd through the 14th.

Specimen tour.
I will be on the road and touring... but not with Botanica and not on the drums but being the scientist at the main helms, engineering the sound for SPECIMEN on the upcoming ALIEN SEX FIEND tour.
I will have dates posted and if you would like to book me to spin music for any afterparties or gigs along the way... I am ready for you!

TechItchShok tunes
Mark Caro and I have been working insanely long hours on our forthcoming album which features vocals from an extensive list of artists.... the next few tunes, including our song featuring Douglas McCarthy (Nitzer Ebb) will be online in edited form on

Traci Lords, Pink Skull, Isaac Hayes & Burt Bacharach, Turboweekend, West Indian Girl, Sisters Of Mixing (Sisters of Mercy UnOfficial), MonoStery and Mood Organ are just several of the artists I have remixed recently and the esnips music player found on will have a playlist of all of these soon in addition to the dozen or so that are currently on there. If you are an artist or label seeking remixes, drop me a note and we can discuss.

That is all for now!

LOTD: video of the day, week, month and possibly year

A video which I have been enjoying recently.... over and over is from the Australian group, GOTYE and the song, "Heart's A Mess".

Combine Pink Floyd's characters of THE WALL, Tim Burton's collection of googly ghouls gadets and grub in a blender with the folks in The Yellow Submarine from the Beatles turned dark in a fantasy world.

Stunning, Breathtaking, addictive, calming set in a cold but warm and placid distant world of adventure is what I can tell you and I hope you are delighted as much as I am.

HINT: click and play it FULL SCREEN!!!

You've All Been Punk'd & lotd

Mhhhmm..... moving to Canada?

I suppose most of you did not know I sorta moved out of Hollywood recently and up to a lovely home in Grananda Hills.
Miss Pooch-A-Rilla spends more time there than I do currently... she loves the big front and back yards!
We both reside with Mark Caro aka TechItch and Jillian as well as her two kitties. Expect to hear and see more on the Pooch & Paris animated series. Think Thelma and Louise but with a cat-like dog and dog-like cat!

To make up for the April Fool's Gag that even had my dad fooled, I have included some extra juicy tidbits from my recent archives.

Stone Hinged

This retired construction worker may have cracked the stone's old mystery of how Stone Henge was erected (yes, Legion... I did say "erected")


Scott Ian (Anthrax) blogs about Battle Star Galactica

Not only is he still rockin it, Scott is bloggin it!

Elvis Costello and Elton John's TV show!

This is no April Fools joke...
Expect to see this airing autumn 2008 on the Sundance channel in the states.

"I'm not interested in extracting some dark secret,"
"I'd rather hear about a bright secret, a deep love or a curiosity that might be otherwise obscured by fame. This is a wonderful opportunity to talk in complete thoughts about music, movies, art or even vaudeville, then frame it with unique and illustrative performances."

Elton John refers to Costello as "the foremost expert on popular music." and continues, "I thought it would be sensational to use his knowledge and intelligence to explore the artistry of musicians and other fascinating people involved in making great music, as well as true music aficionados."
