I can’t say that I haven’t been busy since I left Extended Results in January. I’ve used some of my free time to get back into photography, I’ve focused quite a bit on writing new music, and I’ve been learning some new fun skills.
The Gear Addicts Show
Always one to try new things, I’ve spent the last several months developing a project that brings together my love of music with my love of technology. The Gear Addicts show is to Music as Top Gear is to cars. The goal is to have a little fun, some very casual conversation and learn about new gear and what gear our favorite musicians love to use.
It’s been a fun challenge to learn how to plan, shoot and edit video myself. As you might expect, I’m a Mac guy in the video world as well. The show is shot on Panasonic AG-AC90 HD cameras and edited together in Final Cut X with a little help from Motion here and there. It’s been shooting at the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle and it’s a lot of fun to drink beer and talk gear.
Look for more news on the Gear Addicts show coming soon on the Gear Addicts Show’s Facebook page.
Never one to sit on my laurels too long, I’ve also decided I would like to make a documentary someday. This will be a long project in the making and require a ton of planning, budgeting and eventually fundraising, but I’ve got a great start.

I’m fascinated by the idea of doing a documentary and I think I’ve come up with a creative idea that is compelling to both fans of Jimi Hendrix and people (like me) never quite “got it.”
