-This year, somehow, I’ll be releasing my first novel, “I Wish the King”, a fiction about Michael Jackson.

-The debut album by ANCIENT BABY is nearly done.  I just need to make up my mind about a few things…hi-fi or lo-fi? Self-mixed or hire a wizard? Self-released or look for help?  Only the Baby knows…listen to the womb… the rough drafts are lurking somewhere on the web.

-“Loanlife”, the first incendiary device from my new band LOAN is out.  Digital only for now, chapbook hardcopies being discussed around a table in a dark basement, beneath a swinging, shadeless bulb.
