  • I finally finished “moving in” to my new workstation yesterday so today I spent doing some Lightwave work. I started some new projects, but it remains to be seen whether they will be keepers or not. I also went through all of the comments I received regarding “Polaris” and made a few changes. You’ll find a new, blue, version on the New Images page (the original green version is in the Pickle Jar). I hope you approve of the changes.
  • My Dad, Thurman, recently got back together with his old college band, “The Fratiers”, and cut a CD. A few months ago they played a reunion show at their alma mater, Illinois Wesleyan, and brought down the house (or so I hear). He’s been playing in rock bands for as long as I can remember (my favorite was called “Thurmo-Nuclear and the Fallouts”) and his guitar skills are still pretty sharp.

    Don’t believe me? Check out this link my brother sent me the other day. It’s an interview with one of the band members done for the school magazine. That’s my Dad on the far left of the photo. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you can hear their rendition of “Louie, Louie” with my Dad on lead guitar. He’s going to be 58 this year, but he still rocks!
