My Life as a Blog

New Things to Do
My Life as a Blog on Hiatus

Btw, until further notice this blog is indefinitely suspended. Sorry, but as you can see, it has been a long time since I did an update. Newer things have since caught my attention as other interests have waned. Still, if you like my malarkey, please visit Ripcord's Channel (my channel on You Tube) for music, documentaries, humor, magic, films, stories, electronic music, cartoons, radio drama, thrill rides, opinion & interviews and lots more. Take care!

No News is Good Snooze
Gearing Up for Summer

I apologize for my lack of updates. I've been sort of scatterbrained of late (of late?), and after VooDoo Interface came out, things have been a little slow on the news side. Still, a handful of new projects should pep things up considerably around here in the upcoming weeks and months. Wonder what they'll be? Looking into the crustal ball --it's made entirely of pie dough-- I see a couple of new Digital Games hovering on the Edge of Reality and I think you'll be tickled by them. (By the way, the Edge of Reality is a very interesting place, I can tell you.) Meanwhile, thanks for hanging in there with me. Back in a bit with more....stuff!

VooDoo Interface Released
Digital Eel's Nightmare Band Steps Out

All the Digital Eel game music you ever wanted to hear and more! (Oh oh.) Download VooDoo Interface, the whole darn thing, with a donation and get cool extra stuff or go here and grab everything FREE, with no strings attached!
