the biggest news is that I finally updated my site, after relying
mostly on the blog to convey new thoughts and updates. How lazy
we become when we discover convenient new tools.
After that, the next-biggest news is that Caveat Emptor Holdings has
branched out into music, with the first release of the Caveat Emptor Records imprint called Just
So On The Pillow by the
"group" Octopus Sun. Octopus Sun is, of course, the
Hoflich family, with me as the main singer, songwriter, loopmeister,
arranger, publisher, cover artist, and distributor. Naoko and Zen
both contributed vocals - Naoko sang on two songs (both covers of Spitz songs), and Zen sang and read
into the mic with me. The project is a 3-CD project that is
roughly 50/50 on originals and covers. Click HERE to
get more details such as song lists, credits, etc.
Of course, there is also the newly established Caveat Emptor Video. Most to
of the releases so far have been family-related titles like "The Road To Singapore" (and
its prequel "The Road To The Road
To Singapore"), "Guest
Attack," "Fun-Filled Year 2004," and "Meet The Grandparents."
From our funky Japanese underground series there is the stunning "KBCC*7," "Coa/Ultra Bide," "Half
Japanese/TEEM", "Ultra Fxxxers x 3," and "Ultra Fxxxers/Ydestroyde/TEEM."
