I’m sure we could argue this till the cows come home, but when it comes to horror scores there’s one that tops them all. And no, it wasn’t written by John Carpenter. Sure, sure, the Halloween theme is as iconic as they come. It was the first thing I ever tried plunking out on a […]Read More One, Two, Freddy’s Coming For You
Of all the video games I was a fan of, none of them were as fun for me as Super Castlevania. I was never much of a hardcore video game guy. I liked simple stuff, mostly. Mario, racing, fighting, and shooting games were where it was at for me. Even The Legend of Zelda was […]Read More That Dracula’s A Bad Mutha….

For a few weeks now I’ve been working on a new musical project. It’s a collaboration with one of my oldest friends. This friend is an amazing artist and illustrator. He’s created almost all of the album art for the Goodbyewave albums I’ve put out over the years. He’s also put me onto some amazing […]Read More Long Arm of the Law
