UPCOMING… ETC…

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.

MUSIC

I recently released some new Temple ov Saturn material on 2 releases. The first is an album called Last Stand at Ankh Sanctuary and the second is a free EP called The Serpent’s Gift. Available now through Bandcamp.

Friction on the Astral Plane was just something I recorded one night when I couldn’t sleep.

UPCOMING… ETC…

I’m having some serious health issues so my ability and motivation to create is somewhat diminished although I am still trying to stay active. Hopefully all my health issues will be resolved over the course of the next month or two.

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!
