By the power of Grayskull

There’s been a small change of plans for performances this fall. Turns out that Eugene Corporon will not be doing “Turbine” in late September, as originally planned. Instead, he’s moved the performance to spring — to coincide with the recording of the work for the University of North Texas’s next commercial CD! The UNT CD series is a big deal, and this is the first time they’ve recorded any of my music, so this is pretty exciting.

I’ve been asked to participate on a grant panel this fall. It’s a little weird to be in the position of judging other composers anyway, but when you factor in that some of these applicants are much more famous and respected than I could ever hope to be, it’s all the more daunting. The fun part is knowing that I can use this position to enact sweet revenge on any of the applicants who have ever crossed me in the past.

I’m kidding. Really.

    Would that make you He-Man, or Skeletor?

    Skeletor lived in Greyskull. The definitive work on the subject, Brandon DiCamillo’s “Skeletor v. Beastman” rap makes this clear…among other things…
