phosphorecent - to willie

willie nelson is a king amongst men or at least phosphorescent thinks so. in 1977 willie nelson recorded a tribute album to lefty frizzle titled "to lefty from willie." now the band phosphorescent is returning the favor by recently releasing an album covering some of willie's greatest tunes. it's a real hummdinger.

heartless bastards - the mountain

michael hurley - wildegeeses

charlie poole and the north carolina ramblers - shootin' creek

New World Remo

logo for new world remodeling and construction.

Since the end of Woodminster season i started working for the tech directors contracting business, New World Remodeling and Construction. We've been rebuilding a deck in the oakland hills for the last five six weeks. starting with structural repairs, we moved into replacing the existing "chicken-wire" hand railing with brand new redwood hand railing around the entire deck, a custom front door, custom doggy door, and finally a beautiful stain and sealer refinish. a camera phone photo doesn't really do the place justice. The Weiland family was thrilled with the results and we celebrated with a dog show and hot cupper. thanks for all the delicious coffee breaks. mum brews one hell of a pot.
