dem clouds!

Altostratus by plurgid

"Space rock", man. That's unquestionably what I'm going for on Signal Fires, and this is one of (if you can believe it) three really good new ideas that I've had over  the past week.

The mp3 player is all hosed up on this site. Some new version of flash borked the old version, so I tried to update it to the new version and now it doesn't work at all. Basically at that point I decided it'd be a whole lot easier to just start using soundcloud for my site player. It makes a lot of sense actually, and I can't believe I didn't think of it before now.

So ... yeah most of my old posts won't play any more. Podcast still works, though and has a complete archive, so I mean ... there's that.

We had some damn impressive clouds this evening. That picture is from my driveway about 3 hours ago. Though you can't tell completely from the picture, it was essentially the collision of two massive layers of clouds. Never seen anything like that before (clouds colliding and passing between each other, etc). It sort of inspired this song. Though I'd been fooling with the basic idea for a few days, the heavy guitar stuff ... which sort of came to define it ... definitely inspired by the driveway sky spectacle.
