Why not have them confront their own abilities and limitations, even be suspicious of them? I'm also a huge fan of southern gothic, and while not quite fluent myself, I tried to capture some of its tongue with a small-town vibe.(less)

Scoring “Larkspur Underground” podcast

larkspur_header

Visitors to my Music page know I’ve produced many tracks for multimedia. Theme songs, spot cues, drops/bumpers, etc. However, the closest to a complete score that I’d recorded was for my 2006 short film Featurette, clocking in at a mere 19 minutes. Then came an opportunity to compose for a new serialized horror podcast called LARKSPUR UNDERGROUND. We’ll get down and nerdy in a bit, bu

Quotes by Gordon Highland  (?)

“Heavenly Father, I promise never again (or for three business days, whichever comes first) to take your blessings for granted if your boundless wisdom can manifest to smite this motherfucker. I don’t know, rain down some sulphur, whisper divine suggestion into his ear, even the old salt pillar trick would suffice. But ... I will take up thy sword and act as the county’s mortal archangel once again if I must. I swear to your oft-alleged earthly son that if this thug doesn’t put the toddler down and stop swinging that oversized plastic bat at us, he’ll spend his weekend removing my well-shined size eleven Florsheim from his PCP-smoking ass at the Ballard Institute for Deadbeat Dad Castration.”
Gordon Highland, Major Inversions

“Reading without suspicion is more dangerous than blogging without authority.”

“Writing what you know" is about as much fun as having an affair with your spouse.”

“If you save your best song for the encore, you won't get one.”

“You can't copyright a title, but if anyone tries to steal "Rabbi Sanjeev and the Periwinkle Valise of Intrigue," I'll sue the motherfucking Burberry off their back faster than you can say "Neo-Hassidic espionage.”
