OK… I’m a dork. by Jeff Taylor

Mostly, I just wanted to spread the word that one of my favorite bands are gonna be on TV super late on Friday night (or really early on Saturday, however you like to slice it).




Furthermore I am alarmed – though, No Surprises here – at the thought of MTV’s hiring of someone who would post on their official site that “MTV2 is bringing you a complete performance of Radio Head’s new album.”

In a music industry where few artists make it through the gates playing good music, you don’t have to be a big fan of the band to know how to write ‘Radiohead.’ Sorry. I know this rant is bad form if I’d care to appear unconcerned with such petty things; but whoever they’ve got maintaining the MTV2 website belongs working for a company having nothing to do with the music business… Oh, wait…

Landscapes & Friends. Video. Festival Announcement. by Jeff Taylor

Alright, folks. We’re havin’ a lotta fun this summer. The studio is alive with the sounds of coagulating critters; our band is playing a festival at the end of the season; friends are checking in from all over the country to say, “Hello, friend; It’sAllComin’Together™.”

    First up

: An announcement regarding our forthcoming LP: Many songs are nearing completion. A single, ‘It Swell’ will be released to you very soon.** We’re going to come up with something creative for getting it into your ears. Perhaps we’ll let you pay for the pressing then come to your home and do your laundry/dishes/foot massaging. Standby.

    Next

: As mentioned above, I have put out the bat signal to some friends of mine. These people are untethered – traveling around the U.S. of A. like university freshmen on Spring Break ’00. They are Jet Set’ers and Safe Bet’ers. See below their great smiles, fondness for fresh air, and willingness to snap a photo for use in the below collage. … Ob-zurruve.



Pictured from top-left, heading clockwise are my friends: Sara Bareilles, Javier Dunn, Dan Rhine, Rachel Sawyer, Phil Krohnengold, Zac Colwell, Yours Truly, David Heilman & Patrick Dougherty. It’s fun to paste everyone together … almost as fun as getting everyone in one place to hang out for a while. Might do this again soon…. but, moving on.

    Thirdly

: With the announcement that we will be making a live appearance at Brooklyn Indie Fest 2011, we offer for your review this video of the song ‘Dust.’





Performing with me are some of my best friends: Steve Wall (keys), Mark Guiliana (drums), and Neal Persiani (bass).

Finally, Thank You for a great year-to-date – See you real soon.**

Show Wednesday, Launch Guest by Jeff Taylor

Today I attended the final Space Shuttle launch. Atlantis boomed off into orbit to a crowd of about 1 Million.

The brilliance of the flames trailing under the ship is something photographs and television cannot capture. You had to be there to see those rare colors.

Thirty seconds or so after the shuttle lifted off a giant, low rumble rolled over the bay to the causeway where we stood looking on.



Above see my Launch Guest badge.

Below see a plume of steam, hydrochloric acid, aluminum, etc., left behind by a massive spacecraft which earlier today hurtled desperately through the Floridian atmosphere.



OH! By the way: This Wednesday I’m going to make music at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 1…not sure what kind of show this will be.
