04:07 pm - SFDF05 and the RPM Challenge!
It's been out for two days now, but I should probably mention the new episode of Science Fiction Double Feature, which discusses Wendigo and Ravenous, two wintry horror films with a basis in Native American mythology. Download the MP3 or stream it from Odeo.com, or add the RSS feed to your livejournal Friends page by clicking here.

And while I'm plugging my personal projects, I may as well mention that I've signed myself up for the RPM Challenge. I heard about this yesterday on NPR (listen to the story here). It's similar to the National Novel Writing Month exercise, but this one's for musicians. The challenge? Put together an album in 28 days. They define "album" as "ten songs or 35 minutes," and I'm going to have to do the 35 minutes thing because I can crank out short, instrumental pieces like nobody's business. I could have a ten track EP recorded by Monday, but it might only be 14 minutes long. You can view my profile there, but there's literally nothing there just yet. I'll probably update it later, but I'm not very good at putting profiles together, so I couldn't say when. It would be nice if they'd house the works in progress for the public to listen to, but apparently I'm supposed to blog there about my progress, and mail them the completed project before March 1st, at which point they'll rip the audio and stick it in an online jukebox. That'll be interesting.

We'll see.

Sounds kinda like the Crap Art Album A Day project. Sounds fun though... Curse you.

Sounds fun? Maybe you should check the site out and maybe think about putting something together. The best advice I've ever been given was "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly." In other words, you can make it better later -- the hard part is actually getting started.

I've already checked it out and signed up. Why do you think I'm cursing your name?
