    Gee golly, those TKE guys sure do have a sense of humor.  Did you hear?  The theme for their initiation party was originally “Corporate CEOs and Corporate Hoes.”  Apparently someone wisely understood that this would be a problem, and instructed TKE to change their theme to “Corporate CEOs and Corporate Woes.”  How do I know all this?  It was on Facebook!

    onsidering how much the life and passing of David Bowie has become involved in not only my personal life, but my work here with KScope and BlazeRadio as well, I’m beginning to feel like a bit of a Space Oddity. Perhaps I’ll major in this extraterrestrial curriculum, study the Spiders of Mars and whatnot.

Since then, it’s been a journey that has included stolen equipment and tracks, treks across Mexico and TED talks about great film producers, composers and their influences on his work as an “auteur.” Along the way, the groundwork for “Vega Intl. Night School” was being laid, and at the tail end of 2015, the project finally broke through to see the light of day. Turns out the album is every bit as quirky and cool as the trek that preceded it.
