This experimental piece started out with my desire to get back into using the mic. Most of the vocals are me with some heavy digital filters. At the beginning and end, I also use some electronically generated voices from FL Studio and Alter Ego. https://soundcloud.com/earthpages/we-are-the-future I don’t expect a lot of people to like this!

Nothing too special. Just a shot I took not too long ago. Someday books like this will be a memory. Probably not too far away.Read More Books!
It’s 2007 and I’m 45 years old. This year makes me smile because the Canadian TV comedy show The Kids in the Hall used to do a sketch where this groovy looking guy would fall into the camera and the headlines would read “He’s hip, he’s cool, he’s 45…” I think the implication was that […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 2007
It’s 2005 and I’m 43 years old. Pope John-Paul II and Johnny Carson die this year while North Korea announces it has nuclear weapons. I remember driving downtown and hearing if not this song another one by Mariah Carey and thinking how pop music, in Toronto anyhow, had become the era of the diva. This isn’t a bad […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 2005
It’s 2004 and I’m 42 years old. Not much on the charts or album releases that I can relate to. I’m exploring the Toronto Public Library which has a great network of branches. You can order a book, magazine, CD or DVD online from any branch and a van delivers it to the branch of […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 2004
It’s 2003 and I’m 41 years old. My father would pass away this year so it wasn’t exactly a stellar year. However, my faith saw me through. I remember driving down to St. Michael’s Cathedral and hearing this song by the Canadian duo Appleton come on the radio. The radio program was called Lovers and Other Strangers, […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 2003
It’s 2001 and I’m 39 years old. This was an eventful year. I formally converted to Catholicism at Easter in 2001. I remember feeling graces pouring down on me after leaving the church that sunny day. The other main event, of course, was 9/11. I was with my parents that morning. We had CNN on […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 2001
It’s 1986 and I’m 24 years old. Looking over the charts I didn’t want to do what I did for ’85—post a song or two that meant something to me then but not so much now. Music should engage. So I’m cheating a bit this year. My selection is from a compilation album released in […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 1986
It’s 1985, I’m 23 years old and getting past a romantic breakup by exploring new avenues of creativity. I’d just purchased a recording Walkman and inherited an old reel to reel tape deck that recorded one stereo track at a time. So a friend and I began making experimental music and alternative soundscapes. We taped […]Read More Reelin’ in the Years – 1985
