Welcome Fandrix

Several months of hard work have gone into designing and redesigning my (what was supposed to be) simple portfolio site.  For the time being, I'm happy with the outcome and am proud to announce that my portfolio site, is now officially live. That's not to say that there won't be some moderate tweaking as we approach the new year, but things are looking good.  

The biggest change come this new year will be my ability to hand out promotional business cards to help drive traffic to my sites and showcase my online venues.  From the beginning I've focused on creating an easily adaptable layout, which allows me to easily trade out the content or sites I want to  feature.  I think it will also be a great way of introducing new people to some of my content and highlighting work I'm most proud of. Another personal project (almost) complete! 

Welcome Fandrix! Explore my new portfolio site here.

Pigeons on the Windowsill

Surprisingly, this hasn't been all that uncommon over the last few weeks, but this morning was something else.  For about two hours there was a continuous rotation of pigeons landing on my windowsill to roost.  Some hunkered down for five or ten minutes, some immediately pushed the others out of the way to get a better spot, but I guess my office window was literally the hot spot today.

I was back and forth between the studio this morning and every time I came back I'd snap another picture.  It was actually an amazing photo op because the pigeons weren't scared of me at all.  I was able to get right up to the glass and take some incredible detail shots of the various birds while they went about their business.  In the end it was a pretty entertaining show.     

Inspired Singles: Call Your Girlfriend

Issue 28: Call Your Girlfriend by Robyn

Robyn's awesome album, Body Talk was released late last year and since then I've found myself continually adding a few of her songs into my rotation (notably Dancing on My Own, Indestructible, and Hang With Me).  It was then an awesome surprise to see Robyn on Saturday Night Live this last weekend singing Call Your Girlfriend.  

As far as high-energy electronic pop is concerned, Robyn is among the best out there in my opinion.  Listen to a few of her latest tracks and tell me you don't feel like moving. You might not agree right away, but after listening to a few of her albums you really have to give this Swedish import credit for bringing something fresh to what's become an incredibly over-saturated genre.
