The Crest of the Seekers

The Crest of the Seekers

The Crest of the Seekers

Let our hands hold the night,
‘Til open their eyes come.
Let our lanterns hold the light,
‘Til against us there stand none.

Let our palms tip the scales,
‘Til magic finds its symmetry.
Let the memories of those fallen,
Be the hammer of our destiny.

Hail to thee, friend and foe,
Hail to thee, gray death.
To thy every challenge I go,
With every waking breath.

Song of the Torch-Bearer,
Hymn of The Seekers of the Arcane Unknown

I’m not dead!

Disasterpiece TheatreJust so all of you know, I’ve still been podcasting! Stephen Granade of “What the Cast” and I have a podcast called “Disasterpiece Theatre.” Interested? Here’s a bit about it:

“Disasterpiece Theatre is a podcast where we imagine the most tragically-possible, bad Hollywood movie ideas!  We take everyone’s favorite actors and directors and misappropriate them in bone-chillingly realistic fashion.  Love Ghostbusters?  What if they made a third one… from the directors of “Scary Movie”?  How about Milla Jovovich in a heartwarming family piece?  The result is a truly groan-worthy pitch, as well as comedy gold.”

Episode 8 Delayed Due to Calamity

by on Apr.29, 2011, under Maiden Flight, News

So I am halfway done recording episode 8 of Maiden Flight. I have all of the voices and music I’ll need to complete the series. However, one of the worst storm systems in Alabama’s history swept through on Wednesday and knocked out our power plant. All three units were tripped at the nuclear plant, and the transmission lines running to it were decimated.

Sadly, the supplies to finish the rest of the episode are in my powerless studio. So for the time being, everything will have to wait. I apologize for the delay.
