Residents Interview
I'm very excited about the interview with Residents rep Homer Flynn next week on - the Residents have been gracing the world with their unique form of music/performance art for 30 years! In celebration, the anonymous Bay Area eyeballs have much in store, including the release next week of their most melodic record in years: Demons Dance Alone.

Check out for more details.

Have a super holiday weekend everyone! Making good progress on book proposal, back to normal blogging next week, but with some surpirses and changes. Thanks for your interest.
