music in progress
Three albums


The next four Jak Is A Four Letter Word volumes are currently being recorded. Among the finished tracks are "Next Day Comes Hard", "Fever Dream", "Lost A Bet And Made The News" and "Sudden Deceleration Trauma".


The follow-up to 2014's rock album "Action Packed Self-Destruction" is being written and recorded. Planned tracks include "Earworm", "Some Kind Of Beautiful Racket", and "Cyanide".


Also in the works is a collection of songs with a vaudevillian flare, many of them I composed and performed for burlesque and variety acts over the years. Songs on this one include "Cirrhosis", "Pastel Currency", "Raffle Song", "Glass Medusa" and "Narcissus Stomp".

Targeted
The Targeted project is an ongoing series of fictional short films set in the late 19th century with a focus on action, character, justice, and the consequences of decisions. It's also an experiment in guerrilla filmmaking. A series of no-budget period piece films?
