Free June Calendar Wallpaper: Spacecat!

I was working on an esoteric website design when I stumbled across this awesome cat.  So, obviously we needed to put this cat in space, right?  Am I right? This wallpaper has a little bit of everything for texture lovers, sci-fi geeks and fans of surrealism.  But the star of the wallpaper is, of course, the cat, with an expression that says “don’t make me hurt you.”  The wallpaper is presented in standard, widescreen, iPhone and iPad sizes under a Creative Commons License in the following resolutions:

gwozdziec: pounding the last nail in

i’ve decided to call the gwozdziec album done.  it’s been almost a year since i first started the project, and it hasn’t moved an inch for several months.  my goal was to produce 10-12 tracks for the album, but rather than trying to drag out a project i sort of lost interest in, i’m quitting while i’m ahead.  i listened to the tracks this morning and i actually quite like them.  i’m not the sort of person who would do an album like chinese democracy and go over and over and over it for 10 years, i’m pretty much the sort to record it, mix it, and be done with it as soon as possible.  and i’m taking the lack of momentum on gwozdziec as a sign that the album is done.

so, i’m gonna get my shite together and upload tracks to the bandcamp site and get the same sort of package deal that s3quence has with the bonus content, except that, this time, everything is free.  it came from free, creative commons sources, and it goes back out into the world with a free, creative commons license.  much like my old band the loafmen, anyone can become a member of gwozdziec by taking the material and doing something with it.  i only ask that if you did want to remix it, to leave the gwozdziec name attached to it, just so there’s a breadcrumb trail left behind to follow.

look for stuff in the coming days — i’d like to get it out before february when my musical thoughts should be focussed on RPM 2010.
