Part Two: Recording From Afar Sadly, I live in a different place to John, Moe and Hilden. Very different, over 4,000 miles away different actually. I really wanted to keep an active involvement with the ZomBOOsical after heading home and we’d already tried musical collaboration over the internet before with the Shmopera and it worked […]
Part One: Recording the First Tracks I recently stayed in Minneapolis with John during the first couple of weeks of September. One of the first topics for discussion when I arrived was how much fun the Shmopera had been to record earlier in the year. Over an afternoon BBQ with a couple of pints, Moe […]
So what happens when you put all of Battlestar Galactica into one box? Awesomeness, that’s what. The box in question is the Blu Ray edition of Battlestar Galactica the Complete Series; all 4 seasons, the Mini Series and TV film Razor in one box. And my friends, what a box it is! Feast your eyes […]
Evening all, it’s been a long time. Due to the Writer’s Strike I have been on hiatus, waiting for justice, inspiration and the correct dosage of alcohol to return. And return I have.
So what have I been doing in the last say 6 months? Well the big thing is that after enough people kept telling me, I decided it was time to write my first album which I started probably around January/February this year and I’m aiming to get fully recorded by mid 2010. I also recently started up my own website: www.PhilHaymes.com which I’m using to promote my stuff, blog about the process of writing an album and learning guitar. The good news is that I’ll also be sharing some of this with the Robot Panic community too.
Well folks, a new year is here and I feel fresh, like strawberries and cream or that feeling you get stepping into a waterfall whilst shaking your head around reciting ‘because I’m worth it’. That’s right 2009 is here and I’m feeling good about it. I think I’d describe 2008 as being both the best […]
Ok so here it is, my favourite things of 2008 in no particular order. Speed Racer So everyone else here is making mention to the Dark Knight which I agree is a phenomenal film. That said, I’d like to move onto the much overlooked but equally awesome Speed Racer. For me this film is the […]
Merry Christmas and other festive stuff. I have returned from my little stay in Moscow and was saddened to find England in a worse state than I had left it. So it turns out that whilst I’ve been out of the loop, our economy is – frankly – fucked. And I mean seriously fucked. Now I know that you are thinking, “Yes, but the U.S. is also fucked – haven’t you heard?”, to which I agree. What needs to be understood is that there are levels of fucked and we’ve hit a new one.
Living in the Russian Federation – Red Square! 27-10-2008 Ok, so the weekend hit and it was all about being a tourist. Given that I hadn’t really been able to see a lot of Moscow yet due to work hours I decided that the weekend is for tourist stuff! Saturday: Visiting Red Square Unfortunately, I […]
Adding Boost to your Picking technique with F-zero. A couple of excercises that I like to do to improve my picking technique, speed and acuracy on a near daily basis. Both riffs come from F-Zero X which means they’re gonna have some serious boost… Riff 1: Crazy Call At Cry (Port Town) Riff 2: Driving […]
Living in the Russian Federation – Ninja Power! 24/10/2008 It’s been a fun time at work, the change of environment from working wih and supporting 3,000 people down to around 10 has been a welcome change of pace and attitiude. Finally I’m in a position to really start looking at best practices, preventative measures and […]
