The Scotsman Unbound Now on a CD

My friend Jimmy Rimmer aka Johannes aka Rimbo finally released his CD. It's called Rimbosity. It features a mix of electronic classical new wave celtic-type songs. And for the first time, the dance remix he did of the Brobdingnagian Bards performance of "The Scotsman" is also on it. It's called "The Scotsman Unbound".

In addition to that, there's a few songs by yours truly. Including an electro-Celt version of "My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose" and a cool dance mix of "Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog".

Rimbosity - Electronic Celtic MusicAdd to that compositions. And wow. Johannes is an amazing composer. Some of these songs he's been working on and fine tuning for about ten years. One of my favorite tracks is "The Dream". He and I used to play that together in my first band, Skander. Lots of cool music for the industrio-techno fans.

And to top it off, the CD graphics were done by Jen Clower-Brown, a fantastic artist.

Go Listen and Buy the Album! It's way cool!

Attention Artists! Christmas in Brobdingnag CD Cover Wanted

For the past few years we've talked about releasing a Christmas CD. Each year, something's gotten in the way. The Christmas songs we know. We just need to record them. So throughout November, Andrew's lead the initiative to put one together. It will be a bit of Christmas music with a bit of comedy. Well, we're nearing completion though we don't know how long it will be. Hopefully in another week, we'll have the music totally done.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect and was supposed to get some graphics together for the album, and I forgot!

Ah well, I actually wanted to get a few submissions for the cover in any case. So now I post that here.

My original idea was to call the CD "Christmas in Brobdingnag". The cover would be a picture of a giantess decorating a Christmas tree. I'm hanging as an ornament from the tree, and the giantess is about to place Andrew on the tree. Meanwhile, he's flirting with her and flashing those baby blues and sickening smile of his. ;)

Anyone interested in trying to draw something and submit it? Let me know and email it to me marc at thebards dot net as soon as you can.

Quote from The Signal, a Firefly Podcast

I'm listening to the The Signal, the #1 Firefly Podcast. We met Kari and Les, the hosts, at DragonCon in September.

The episode is from October 3rd. The crew was doing a special edition where they talked about DragonCon and events. They give us some high praises, but I thought the most amusing was this one.
"Andrew with the blue eyes. He's so cute."
