Way back. Back to a time when Democrats controlled the House, when despots across the Middle East had nary a care in the world, and when Charlie Sheen was just that super-rich prick on that painfully unfunny sitcom that somehow attracts 10-15 million viewers every week. Yes, folks, we’re going back…to 2010.

Shortly after the new year, I made a couple of mixes of songs from some favorite records of 2010. And now, after a few months of procrastinating, I’ve finally dusted them off, bounced them, and uploaded them to this here blog. Since I think I missed the window for timeliness, I’m thinking maybe I can get away with marketing them as retro. So put down those vuvuzelas and take a listen:

Weekday Worrier now has a Listen page, which I’ll periodically update with mp3s (and maybe the occasional video) of stuff I’ve worked on. The first batch of songs I’ve put up is historical in nature, namely, from my old bands The Great Clearing Off, The Third Wheel, and Family Fun. Go check ’em out! Up next, current projects.

You can find a couple of blurbs about Zombii 2 here and here. It’s being “released” tomorrow, by which I mean that Zane and Brea will be giving it to those who find them at or around the IDW table at Comic Con in San Diego–they’re doing a signing for their forthcoming comic at 4:30pm tomorrow–and who follow the ask-and-trade rules described on their sites linked below.

But here’s a sneak preview:
Night of the Living Dead (Original Version) – Zombii 2

They had already finished this one up before I got involved, so I’m not on it, but it’ll give you a flavor of what’s on the CD. I’ll post another mp3 or two when the disc is officially out there.
