SoundCloud (Main)
Here is the SoundCloud account for all or much of my primary musical work. It's chock full of ambient/electronic pieces, 361 songs total as of this writing.
SoundCloud (Archive)
Here is another SoundCloud account, one for my old alternative rock 'n' roll music. Expect about 20 lo-fi pieces from years 1991 to 2003.
TheAllegedShow
My brother, Aaron, and I together host this mostly weekly hour-long show on radio station WQNA. It's half comedy, half music, and three-quarters unknown chunks.
SitarTuning
I offer a large collection of pure tones in mp3 format (completely free of charge) designed to help sitarists tune their instruments. As a (former) sitar player, I understand how difficult it can be to keep the instrument on course.
Musical Realists
My son, Isaac, and I have made music together over the years. This SoundCloud account for our project, which is called Musical Realists, should give you enough cute and quirky electronic children's music for a good while.

Words
TeaLeaves
My first book, available on Amazon, is a collection of essays much like a Pink Floyd or Radiohead album, in that although threads of the subjects of music and language connect them, each of the pieces is distinct.
MetaStupid
My 2nd book, also available on Amazon, is a brief though intense treatise which roots the intellectual pursuit of what it means to be stupid deep in layers of metaphysical analysis. Over the course, I mix the personal with the universal in ways that entertain and defy the conventions of both memoir and philosophy.
SeeingHow
My public blog, in which I post writings and pictorial essays concerning politics, music, civil rights, and relationships.
Essays
Essays on such topics as perception, communication, work, personal taste, and David Foster Wallace.
Fiction
Several pieces of alt/postmodern fiction from my college days at Illinois State University in the early 90s, during which time I studied under Curtis White.
ThawZen
This is a collection of Buddhist-flavored poems I wrote recently. For now, this link simply opens a PDF of the original manuscript.
EscapeFromLegoCity
At long last, I attempt a contemporary interpretation of LEGO "City" toy box covers.
Possible Books
What new books in the fields of cultural studies and critical theory might be on the horizon? Let's find out!
Repaired News
News comes and goes, but what remains is a single unpaired sock at the bottom of the hamper. Seriously, though, these are pieces written for my radio show originally declared on the air to be current news, so just keep that in mind.
Cartoons
NinjaGalactic
Oh, the things we do. Sometimes, they involve drawing a comic strip that puts ninjas in outer space, pitting teen musicians against male bighorn sheep and slimy interstellar frog creatures against our plucky hero.
CaptainNatural
On the other hand, there are subjects seldom broached in polite society but which should probably be much more, specifically perhaps the one of how funny genital integrity can be.
GarfieldAndLyman1
In the Garfield comic series, Lyman was the original owner of Odie the dog and was also Jon's roommate, but sometime around 1982 he vanished from the series without explanation. Before Lyman was largely forgotten, though, at the age of thirteen I drew these comics detailing the many battles that Garfield and Lyman had with each other behind the scenes.
GarfieldAndLyman2
Every nonsensical, gratuitously violent comic series deserves a sequel, right? Volume 2 even contains a subseries in which the titular characters expand their battle zone to the interplanetary realm.
Images
pictures
Nothing to see here, folks, nothing but pictures which may or may not seem funny or (more basically) simply enjoyable to your sense of vision. They are largely photoplasty, albeit with the occasional piece of unfiltered photography.
ethereality
Photos of Ethereal Reality
videos
There are videos I make, too, that I wish to share with you. Here are a few of my favorites and a few of the more culturally popular, which categories might of course overlap in some instances.
Work
tcdi
We all have to work for a living, and I do as well. My "day job" is programming for and co-managing a small family computer business here in Springfield, Illinois. We don't work with residential technology but rather that of businesses, and our clients find us through word of mouth, so please don't consider this note to be an advertisement.
