the fake album reviews are in...

"There is no mistaking the genuineness of this record. Danchilla never quivers away from his honesty."
3.5/5, favorable review magazine


"It shows a potentially gifted artist who unfortunately here sounds like he has favored rawness instead of polish."
2/5, vilage voice


"I really liked the impromptu sounding instrumental track."


first album finally complete and online!

the decisions for my first album are over and exposed, for better or worse.

Album complete
'searching' - 2008 debut album

it's a tough thing to make yourself public and view your innards, but i am proud to have stuck with it, glad to be done, and hope to build on my next album (which i expect will have some digital ambient experimentation on top of the songwriting)


scrubs quote that made me LOL for real (have to see the clip)

Elliot: Do you still let that inner voice of yours control you?
J.D's narration: This is getting too serious. Kick her, kick her in the head.
J.D.: Not as much.


Robert's Beck anecdote

"Earlier this year Carline and I were walking in Vancouver and I said 'that guy looks like Beck'. And he was wearing crazy clothing and was with the actor Giovanni Ribisi's sister, who he was apparently dating.

Carline without looking replies 'no, totally not him'. So as he just passed us, I said 'let's pretend we forgot something' and walked back after him.

Then Carline looks at him and says 'that is totally him'. And it was apparent that it was him as other people were saying stuff like 'I love your music, gonna see you tomorrow at the Seattle show.'

However, Carline could not help staring at Beck and she kept looking at him creepily until he got obviously nervous and nessled into me. And then he said 'hey man, do you know where burrard is?' And I told him 'about two blocks that way' and he said 'Cool man'.

The kicker, was upon further inspection he was wearing the exact outfit that he did in his ticketmaster advertisements."

To this anecdote I give my highest rating, the derek zoolander "cool story, hansel"


clear thinking

i've been able to think very clearly the last week, and had some really great problem solving ability at work and at leisure - getting back into some complex mathematics

not sure how long this will last, but it is a pleasant surprise

Tom Petty - Waiting For Tonight ()

Just out walking, letting my mind roam
If she hung around too much I might take her for granted
But when I was away, she seemed an angel
The only one who really cared about me
The only one without an angle
For so long I've been lonely
Now I'm too weak to fight

I've been waiting for tonight
I've been waiting for tonight
