News and Ramblings.
Two New Books!
Life in Our Town features three historical novellas salted with humor and romance. While, Uncle Kelly...well, what can I say about that? Uncle Kelly's Little Book of...Wisdom? Is a...book full of alleged wisdom and humor from the notorious Uncle Kelly. (In other words this book is a collection of Kelvin's blog posts and social media mischief.) Don't take our word for it, you can check these books out by clicking the link below.

The Audio Playlist-What's Playing?
The audio player now includes some alternate mixes and curiosities unearthed from the archives...it may well not be your thing, but that's cool.

Basically, I was having fun imagining a day in jungle...anyway, this is followed by a rough, unfinished, oddball, Beck influenced pop mix of Brookville...followed by a heavy take on a track by the Russian pop group TATU...the TATU mix is remarkable in the fact that originally it was a Britney Spears type pop song...and it was turned into an experimental arena anthem solely by adding fx and whatnot in the mixing process...it was an interesting experiment. After that there's an evil industrial track created for a video game and we finish off with, You're Not Alone...I can't really remember much about this...it has a good lyric though...for those who care, these are audio memories and insanity from when I was much more heavily involved in the music game...it was was it was...
