Larry’s Silk Hat, What?!

June 5, 2006

Okay, guys, I know I've talked to you all about this before, but I have this podcast called TEENCAST. It is awesomely awesome in every awesome way. I just put up episode 3, entitled Silk Hat, which is probably our best yet because of the STRUCTURE we have. We have added theme music all around everywhere, and we have sections and lots of content.

Unfortunately Jill couldn't make it onto episode three until the end, so I recorded with Ms. Leah, who was verrrrrrryy random. We had lots of interesting things to talk about, and Leah was even nice enough to record the section themes. We have the theme music of Harry Potter, Lemony Snicket, the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and even the Bad Day theme song in there, and its really cool and in my opinion very funny, so I really hope you atleast check out that episode for an idea of whats to come.

We have a movies section, a music section, a book section and even a mystery section! Want to know whats in the mystery section? Can't tell you, its a mystery. You'll have to listen to find out!

If you will please listen to it and tell me you did, I will be sooooo happy and if you leave a comment on this site or the podcast site that you want read on the show, I will soooo read it, just let me know if you want it read. And even if you don't want to be appearing on the show, Jill and I need feedback so that we know what to change and what to keep to make it an awesome show!

So reigning in at exactly 40 and a half minutes, this show is probably one of our best, and one you will definitely not want to miss, so I beg you to listen to atleast five minutes and let me know what you think!

Thanks guys, you all rock!

PS – And kudos to Mr. Gregory for writing the theme song for the podcast!

In the Hall of the Mountain King.

May 9, 2006

That's where I feel I am in life. Existing in a narrow stretch of time and space, blocked by the monster of the Mountain King. Getting to that point, the last battle with the King himself, the monster trouble of all other recent troubles, will not be easy. The journey to and the last battle — there will be victories; there will be small periods of time where things will seem easier, where I conquer small tasks and obstacles, but until the final event, until I get past the monster that is seemingly troublesome, I feel all is going downhill: to the dark shadows underlining the beast, which is the penultimate ending to the next step in being on my own in the world. Once past that: nothing is stopping me.

Listen.

I recorded this a few months ago when thinking I was going to use the song in an audition. I ended up with going with Bach instead, but I stiil liked the recording. I wanted to share it with you guys. That's me playing it, some notes are a little out of tune, but shifting from first to fourth position at that time was not easy.

It was composed by Jay Ungar in 1982, and was originally written for violin, but I transposed it to bass clef. I hope you like it…
