Peter and Naoko Höflich - world famous in Singapore since 2003


Enjoy the site.  Have a nice day.
Peter, Naoko, and Zen Hoflich

NEWS: Well, 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."  (more news)
