My uncle gave me a Polaroid camera when I was in first grade, its one of the earliest gifts I can actually remember receiving. I still have that camera even though I couldn’t get film for it for years. My mom gave me the new version of the same camera last year for Christmas but I hadn’t used it until this past weekend. I always loved the quality of polaroid photos, especially when they become a bit distorted.

I spent a few days in Buffalo, NY to meet the creative people behind Raven Vanguard. I was glad to finally meet them and to see their beautiful and mysterious space. Looking forward to collaborating with them. In the mean time, please check out their work on their site.

It was my first time back in Buffalo since I living there almost 10 years ago. While I was there, I finally checked out the Eternal Flame and visited Niagara Falls. On the way home, I stopped in Utica for see Thomas Cole’s The Voyage of Life. All in all, it was a great long-weekend get-away.

June 21 at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn: Temple ov Saturn with 185668232, Cami-Oh, and Johnny Killman

This is the first Temple ov Saturn show since taking a break for health reasons. My health and growing medical debt is limiting my ability to come to NYC to perform so don’t wait thinking there will be another time to see me. I won’t be coming down to Brooklyn that much this year, if at all.


ETC…

I have the 2 events coming up… the sound bath in Jersey City on [TBA](DATE IS NO LONGER MAY 26… WILL UPDATE WHEN THE NEW DATE IS CONFIRMED) that I will be providing visuals for and a Temple ov Saturn show on June 21 in Brooklyn.

I’ve been working on some Temple ov Saturn remixes… I think I may offer them as part of a subscription on Bandcamp if people are interested. Maybe include some prints or something like that too. I’ll probably duplicate it for Patreon as well. I’ve never been any good at monetizing my work, I really want to just give everything away freely, but at the same time, it takes time and resources to create. My message is valuable, but not in a way that translates to what is deemed valuable in modern society.

With that said, I am available for hire for video editing. I have growing medical debt, so now would be a good time to consider me for your video needs. I don’t want to give up my art, but it may come to that given my current situation. So if you’d like to hire me, please get in touch by using my Contact page!

A perfect day in Rockland County.

My surgery went well, there was no Week in Review post last week because my work pretty much came to a halt for a few days after the procedure. Thanks to everyone who reached out with their concerns and wishes for my recovery.

Since its been almost one year since I released the first Temple ov Saturn EP (Initiate) I am offering 50% of my entire discography on Bandcamp until May 11. Use the code ‘oneyear’ for the discount.

I’ll be having surgery in 8 days, I expect to feel better shortly after. I have health insurance but because this condition is so rare I need to see an out-of-network doctor. To help cover my medical expenses I will be offering some limited edition prints and probably a limited edition cassette as well. More details on that soon.

Here are some photos from my visit to Slabsides, the former cabin of John Burroughs and some of the surrounding scenery.

If you’ve been following along on social media, you’ve maybe heard that I’m dealing with some serious health issues. I expect to recover, but from now until I have surgery, I’m worried about it. It makes me feel better to try to continue creating as much as I can because just in case I bite the dust, I will go out knowing I was active until the end. Don’t squander your good health, enjoy your life while you can.

Save the date... Temple ov Saturn in Queens on Oct 22.

I didn't book any shows this month because I want to work on some recording. Its hard for me to be in a creative mode when I'm practicing for shows. I'll be doing a DJ set (Pope Joan II) on October 20 at Garner Arts Center and then on the 22nd I'm doing a Temple ov Saturn set in Queens. 

If you saw my previous blog post about what happened with my Vimeo on Demand erotic video collections, you'll know that I'm searching for a solution. Maybe its time to put them to rest... I've been starting to edit them down into shorter versions, and plan on making them into a single film. I thought maybe one solution would be to present it somewhere at a film screening... perhaps if I had a solo show of art work, it could be worked into that. If anyone has other ideas.. let me know! 

I need to spend some time this coming week updating this website to be a little bit easier to navigate! Eventually I'd like to do away with the Art(s) pages because the Shop page is basically a duplicate. 

I hope everyone who has check out the new Temple ov Saturn music is enjoying it!
