Ether's "Butter Cakes" Clockwork Wizards Utterly Fresh Mix
After talking about it for waaaaaaay too long, I have finally uploaded
my first remix of James Ether's "Butter Cakes." Hopefully,
people will find it enjoyable. I uploaded it to the Clockwork
Wizards profile at ACIDPlanet. You can go straight to the song
page by clicking on my wacky, psychotic grin below:
anyone asks... The thing that I'm holding is Skim Leche, one of
James Ether's "Podunk Jamboree" series of handmade dolls.
I feel the need to restate that he has never paid me for promoting his
stuff, nor has he ever even asked me for the promotion; I just really
enjoy his work, and I like to spread the word when I enjoy an artist.
that in mind, I know that some of my earlier Journal entries have outdated
information on James Ether's websites. Here are the correct and
proper addresses at this time:
- A page where you can hear a some of the tracks from his CDs.
(If you like the tracks, you should go ahead and buy 'em. Spend
a few bucks to support a brilliant independent artist!)
- The site at which you can buy Ether's handmade dolls, like my pal
Skim in the picture. Some are cute, some are freakish, and one
of them is a Moth Boy. You can use them to amuse your friends
or scare very small, impressionble children. You can even buy
a hand-made wallet with googly eyes in it! Lots-o-fun.
- Ether's crazy cartoons. Not for the kiddies; this guy is warped.
You may want to avoid "Cake Time" - very very very
messed-up and definitely not for kids. However, check out the
absolutely hilarious "Saturday," "Pimpin' Ain't Easy,"
"Don't Touch the Pan," "The Nonsense Kids Super Gang
6010," or "Progression."
far, I've done five different remixes for James Ether. The Utterly Fresh
Mix of "Butter Cakes" was the first. More will follow
at ACIDPlanet, and hopefully James will feel it fit to release them
all on a remix CD or something. I hope to do at least one more
remix - from the song "Progression," featured on the CD "Screaming
Death from above," with a music video available at the Painted
Wagon (noted earlier).
but not least, two more things... No, I'm not going to neglect
my own original songs, which I'm still working on. And, in case
the picture above makes me look like as much of a "chick magnet"
as I think it should... Then, yes, ladies; I am still
