I am now a Little Monster… (show me your teeth!)
The power of 5 million LEDs, stage presence and fierce creativity warmed up The Joe and melted the ice for 120 fleeting minutes.
I will drink in all the knowledge of the world and not reject it
I will eat of the adventures contained within the world and all it’s inhabitants and not reject them.

New Zealand lamb chops (from the markets of Meijer)
Dusted with cumin and Sri Lankan curry; braised on a lovely seasoned cast iron pan, then roasted with a bit of water, balsamic vinegar and wine and whole pepper corns.

If you are wise you will see beyond their cultural and historical significances and see that spark of the devine is in you and always has been. The only thing that’s necessary to bring it to a full fire is the realization of your Self.
Here it is y’all:

Digital publishing rocks and is a great way to get this out there to those that have interest. However, Version 03 marks the creation of a newly published real book. It is literally an illuminated manuscript. The cover is hand etched plexiglas embedded with various colors of LEDs, circuitry and a battery, with aluminum and copper tape accents. The custom binding makes it truly unique.
Enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it (the musical components it was culled from were exquisitely crafted as well). Now if I could only find a director or a production designer…
