Happy Autumn!

Good morning early risers and Happy Autumn! Autumn (Fall) is my favorite time of year. I love the transition from Summer to Winter. I love the harvest season.  And Halloween approaches!

There's a neat article I read on National Geographic this morning about Autumn (here).

Have a great day!

One Man

Good evening,

Here's a little night music for your ears..."One Man" taken from a CD I recorded with my sister "Beth Eyre and Month of Sundays".

Beth and I recorded a three song demo with our band to get some gigs back in the day. You can read about the band here.


Have a listen...leave a comment...
Thank you,

Music for your mayhem...

Greetings,

As October gets closer I take account of the places that have used my Halloween music,  My music can be heard at home haunts, professional haunted houses and theme parks.

I've been very fortunate to have been well received into the haunt/Halloween community. It makes me unbelievably happy to hear my music playing when I walk up to a house on Halloween.  I appreciate all those who use my music to help enhance their event.






Here's a promo video that S and C Scarefactory did using the "Fleshrot Anthem" from Fleshrot: Songs from the Dead.

Be sure to let me know if you're using any of the Pumpkinland soundscapes or tunes from Fleshrot for your event.  It makes me happy to help haunt your house.

Halloween Approaches

Wow...

This is only my second blog post of the year...  It has been a VERY interesting year for sure and now that we're getting close to October I figured I'd dust off my blogging fingers and get ready for the month long spree as well as the "plan" to blog more often.

This year has seen the ending of my job - laid off at the end of June from a job I had planned on staying at until retirement.  A blessing overall, but now I'm unemployed and seeking a new gig. All job offers will be considered so pass my name along, let me know if you know of any good jobs...etc...

A while back I had posted about "Family Ancestry" (here) and since have learned that I had the birth Father thing totally wrong. Yesterday I met my birth Father in person for the first time and it was great.  I am hopeful that we'll continue to see each other (and the extended families) from here on out.  The "who am I" picture is now complete and other than some serious catching up I'm on to the next leg of this life journey.

So, stay tuned as I am getting ramped up for Halloween.  Be sure to have a listen to my tunes...here.

TO THE SEASON!

Happy New Year

Looks like I made it through 2015.  This year had tremendous highs and incredible lows. The birth of my son was a highlight for sure and if not for him, my other children, my wife, family and friends I don't know if I could regard 2015 as a success.  The struggles were many, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

I hope for each of you a peaceful, prosperous and exciting New Year.

I will, as usual, press on and do what I do.  I look forward to a New Year filled with good things! Let's go 2016! I'm sure hoping for a good year.


Cheers!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good morning friends,

Today I am thankful for many things. I am thankful that you are taking a few minutes to read this blog post.  I am thankful for my family, for my friends, for music, for beer, for good health, my job, my home, my car and for all the many blessings in my life.

What are you thankful for?

I don't need a special day to be thankful for all that I have.  I am thankful each day for each day and for what I have.

Here's a song called "Thank you" off "Unreleased mopehead".  It is an instrumental track with samples of Richard McGhee Star Vocalist that were taken from "Halloween at the Rain Station".

Thank you again for sharing some time with me and Happy Thanksgiving!

November 1st....October IS over

November 1st is here yet again and...October's Over. Blogging everyday during the month of October is part are my Halloween festivities.

I now traditionally post mopehead's "October's Over" when we reach November. It is a commentary on how I feel the day after Halloween. It takes me a few weeks to get over the loss felt when the Halloween season is over. Although I love that Halloween is the gateway to other holidays, it always seems to come and go so quickly. October 31st is when my Father passed away so it has multiple meanings for me.

As I tell people when they question me about Halloween being my favorite holiday...

Halloween is the greatest play day of the year. As an adult you can get away with being anything or anyone (well...almost). And unlike other holidays if you choose not to participate you aren't shunned. Seriously folks...if I told people I just didn't feel like participating in Thanksgiving or Christmas I would be excommunicated. If you don't participate in Valentine's Day you don't have love or know love. 4th of July you are not a patriot. Halloween? Eh...no biggie.

Of course that seems just plain wrong to me, but I like the no pressure nature of my favorite holiday.

Enjoy the track...
