The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors (#243) (852)

Xeres and I decided that we needed to get away from it all, for a while. We arrive at Big Rock Candy Mountain, a fantastic campground with a number of odd features, including a creek near an ocean beach with lots of hiking in tropical and pine forests. Occasional guests wander in, we read some poetry and short stories, offer some PSAs about camping, and we have our Short Wave Radio to tune in music and The Weather Computer.

It’s The Great Outdoors. Sit around the campfire, and stay a spell.

Enjoy!

The Horror of Haunted Houses

The Horror of Haunted Houses (#240) (849)

After getting lost in the Mid-Valley on my way home from a show, I stumble upon a pair of “Haunted Houses,” and have to endure these ridiculous experiences.

Fortunately, I was allowed to crack wise to help me get through the night. Radio Riffing on two ridiculous horror classics, for those who enjoy a little comedy with their weirdness.

Enjoy!

The Cave of Night

The Cave of Night (#231) (840)

Are we feeling isolated, stuck in places we’d rather not be… or, at least, we want everyone to believe that? Both a metaphor and something very real, we’ve all entered the Cave of Night, and the music around us is starting to reflect our state of mind.

It’s a New Year’s Eve story (sort of), about having to spend this time alone, wanting to get away, and reflecting on strange occurrences around us. We close with a Cookie Recipe and some Richard Brautigan, of course.

Enjoy!

The War Years w/ MKUltramegaphone (Retrocast) (#228)

This week, we review two shows from 2017, where the then-house band – MKUltramegaphone – presented two long-form cut-ups and live jams, all centering around how, exactly, we got into WWII. This was our “Pearl Harbor Day” broadcast, and only at the end did I remember: we didn’t get to Pearl Harbor Day in our original broadcasts! Oh well.

Here’s the original shows:

The War Years Part I (w/ MKUltramegaphone)

The War Years Part II (w/ MKUltramegaphone & Uneasy Chairs)

Let’s Have A Party Tonight!

Let’s Have A Party Tonight! (#226)

With the holidays upon us, it seems like there’s too many family and social obligations already upon us. So, before we have to do the family thing, and drive for too long to visit family that we might not be excited about, let’s instead have a party, to celebrate with friends before we have to do the holiday thing.

Wanda Jackson punctuates this celebration. Let’s party!

Enjoy!

Blast Off!: A Journey Through The Mid-Valley (#225)

Our debut via “Sheena’s Jungle Room on WFMU.” For this program, we offer an overview of what our show is like for new listeners! This includes: technical difficulties! A visit to hang out with The Grumpy Punk. I engage my vintage tour guides to help us trek through the wilds of The Mid-Valley.

Reflection

Reflection

The release of People Like Us‘ new album The Mirror got me thinking about reflections, and what the do and do not say about us and our state of mind. As I begin to prepare for an incredible voyage to make new friends and travel far, I am compelled to take a similar trip through music and sound, hoping to stumble upon something that works.

In hour one, I continue to mine the joy that comes from new music that I have come across recently. This is a great mix, with a lot of cool stuff that I do not announce during the show, so please, read the notes below.

Then, in hour two, Mini-Mutations sort of busts open the idea of reflection with an hour-long jam on the subject itself. Samples (manipulated with a MicroGranny & a pair of Numark CDJs), bass, and a delay pedal.

And you were there!

Enjoy!

Vanished!

Sometimes, radio can seem different when you’ve vanished. Hopefully, this is a good way of meeting everyone much more directly – with live mixing and a performance – to cause the notion that I’ve vanished to disappear.

“Nov. 1” by Crackerbash

“Nov 1” b/w “Halloween Candy”

“Nov. 1” by Crackerbash

I listen to this song every November 1st.  It’s by Crackerbash, a little known Portland band that I only got to see twice.

 

But they were really, really great.

There’s some stuff available if you want to start digging.  I recommend this live set from a performance in Corvallis in 1992.

 

Sean Crogan is currently the front man in The Pynnacles.  They a really, really great, too.

Enjoy.

HORROR DOUBLE FEATURE!

HORROR DOUBLE FEATURE!

A Night On Horror Island

Somehow I have would up in Florida, but my good friend Bill Martin happens to own a boat there. Maybe he can help me get home, somehow, on his way to Horror Island?

b/w

imagesThe Creeping Terror!
(We take WTBC Radio to new depths of bad horror movies with this 1964 piece of schlock-o-rama.  Originally 15 October 2015, and as “#20.1” in 2016.)

 

Here’s everything you need to know about this movie from 1964: there is no documented evidence that the film was ever shown to anyone – anywhere – until it first appeared on Television some time in 1976.  Even then, 12 years later, the film was mocked and panned relentlessly, as anyone who came into contact with the film could only speak of its shortcomings.  Something that bad begins to attract a certain kind of reputation with a certain kind of movie fan, and in spite of the terrible reviews, the inexcusable acting, the cheapness of the monster(s), and the spareness and near-incoherence of the plot (even without the long musical interludes where nothing happens, the film clocks in at 75 minutes), it would not die!  Rather, The Creeping Terror – miraculously! – accrued a reputation that could not be forgotten, canonized as being so bad it must be seen to be believed.  As tapes of The Creeping Terror circulated to TV stations running Shock Theater! type fare, this piece of cinematic trash not only found an audience among those dedicated to the rejects of film culture, but eventually found its way to the hallowed halls of Mystery Science Theater 3000, not only keeping it forever in the public’s mind, but forever preserving it for future generations to look at and puzzle through.

Just what did they have in mind when they made this thing?

creepingterrorYou can thank the twisted mind of Vic Savage for that.  “Director” does fully cover Vic’s role in this film, who also starred in, produced, edited, paid for, scammed other’s to participate in, and – essentially – made the movie what it is, in every sense of the word, at the age of 28.  As the story goes, Vic paid Allan Silliphant to be the writer for the film, but it was clear once production began that Vic was in over his head, and had a “unique” vision for the film that was not what Allan was prepared for.  Vic had a number of excuses time and again: the location “fell through” at the last minute, most likely something that was never secure in the first place.  An impressive monster had been made for the production, so Vic claimed, but “disappeared” before filming could take place, so Vic and a few others created the “carpet remnants” monster you see in the picture.  Supposedly the film was going to be a well-funded horror film, as Vic had sold it to everyone, but as the filming date got closer, more and more of the cast were made up of people who paid to be in the film, “funding” the production from within.  Vic’s sound crew “never showed up,” so the majority of the audio was to be recorded in post-production.  As the production went on, more and more people backed out, delaying time it was taking Vic to put the thing together.

The stories about this film don’t end there.  Vic had to use another name (for “Union Purposes,”) and “Directed” (among other things) under the name “A.J. Nelson,” which led to some confusion moments on set when a financial backer was trying to figure out who had just ripped him off.  (A mystique that Vic was hoping to maintain.)  Vic had secured a location for the film eventually – a pond that a friend of his by the name of Randy Starr – yes, THE Randy Starr that provided Charles Manson with the gun used in the Tate-LaBianca murders – had found, which stood in for Lake Tahoe in the film, and was near where the Manson Family lived at the time.  When all the footage was shot, Vic rented a motel room, “borrowed” a 30 year old movola to cut the film.  As the movola was from the silent era, the soundtrack was essentially destroyed by this move, something that Vic had not anticipated.  Some of it could be made out, but large chunks were gone now, and the edits were noticeable.  To help cover for this, Vic turned to his friend Frederick Kopp, a teacher at Los Angeles State College, who taught music composition and worked occasionally in television, though not in a “credited” capacity.  Kopp scored the entire film, his first and only composition where he was credited, and was even conned into dropping a few dollars to help the production, on the promise that his son, Pierre, could get a role in the picture.  Vic then asked Larry Burrell, then working as voice talent in radio, to narrate the film.  (Larry might be the most famous person associated with the film outside of Randy Starr, who worked on BatmanColumbo and the amazing TV movie, They Saved Hitler’s Brain.)  When Vic mixed these with what remained of the original audio bits that were worth saving, and added a few stock sound effects to pad out the sound of the monster and other bits here and there.  (Sound effects that also appeared in in Battle Beyond the Sun and Jack the Giant Killer, as well as Rosemary’s Baby, though it should be added, not intentionally.)

Creeping-Terror-Gold-Pants-Lady-1Vic “completed” (or, as some would say, “stopped adding to”) the film in 1964, but before he could try do anything with The Creeping Terror, everything began to fall apart.  True, Vic had a working “print” to try and sell, but actors began to demand compensation for the money they had put into the picture.  Allan Siilliphant, angry over the changes Vic made to the story, sued Vic successfully, over clear breach of contract.  Vic actually disappeared completely rather than face the financial consequences of the lawsuit, and Allan was awarded the rights to do with the film as he wished.  Allan washed his hands of it, giving it to his agent, and through a series of hand-offs that have yet to be tracked down, was eventually shelved by a TV exec who pawned the problem off on the future.  Vic spent the rest of his live in a drunken stupor, and died of liver failure in 1975.  He never attempted to return to film in the time since the disaster that was The Creeping Terror, and he died knowing that he was the only person who had seen it, and thus, know the vision he had for the film.

In this rare instance, time was a friend to Vic Savage.  Even when you fail at something so spectacularly, that failure can open up a whole world of possibility in the future.  Sure, the camp value of it is the only thing recommending The Creeping Terror to modern audiences, and even on MST3K, the film is hard to get through.  But I think that people see an artist trying to make their voice heard when they see a failure like this.  They see themselves, barely an adult at age 28, wanting to express themselves in film the way so many others have before.  Vic was willing to go out on a limb, and pay the price of that taken chance, to see his vision completed.  Sure, it was a dumb vision, but who hasn’t put all their eggs in a basket, if only to learn that lesson up close and personal?

To accompany the film, I’ve selected a sort of stream-of-consciousness set of tunes to complement this narrative mess.  The Creeping Terror barely makes any sense, so really, just absorb the ambience and the musical accompaniment, and try to imagine yourself watching late night TV in the mid-70’s, and then, suddenly, this comes on.

Enjoy!

This week we continue our Ghost Story program with special guest, Obadiah Baird, who talks about editing The Audient Void, his favorite free horror movies, and then we read some poetry that is perfect for this time of year.

In hour two, Nathan Carson and Erin Jane Laroue provide an excellent rendition of an Ambrose Bierce short story, and so much more. This is a good one!

Victrola’s Tales! (or, “Cottage Street”)

Victrola’s Tales! (or, “Cottage Street”)

While we haven’t done all that many of these Ghost Stories shows, very few people have wanted to come into the studio and tell their stories live either. But DJ Victrola is not like other DJs, hosting her very own program – The Guitar Shop – now in its 21st year, with no signs of slowing down. When she offered to come in and tell old Philly Ghost Stories, I knew we had to do this one live. And you, dear listener, get to reap the rewards.

While I don’t want to spoil too much about her stories, I will say that you should stay tuned, as she not only features appropriate tunes to complement her stories, but sets a mood that is perfect for strange happenings in a haunted house. And: Cyclopsycho composed a bespoke Ghost Tune for this broadcast, which we get into almost immediately during the show. (You should visit cyclopsychosite.com for more music, or check out the live performance on Ricardo Wang’s What’s This Called?)   Plus: we get to hear one of the all time best Lord Buckley recordings that is not only about ghosts, but spans two holidays in one.

Stay tuned to the very very end, and hear a very special treat: The Professor & Miss Rikki from Closet Radio call in. Miss Rikki, DJ Victrola and I all go back to KPSU, when we were on after each other for a spell in the days when Rikki & I hosted A Momentary Lapse of ReasonWe had an excellent radio reunion on the air, and Rikki spills the beans about normal childhood happenings that absolutely count as ghost stories, even though she just shook them off.

This one has a personal touch that is well worth a listen, and we’re not even finished with the holiday season. (BTW: Shoutouts to Steve & Lisa, from Vicky.) This is a Friday The 13th that you must hear to believe.

Enjoy.

Bit Players In The College Radio Drama That Is Blasphuphmus Radio Part II
(Featuring edited highlights from five early episodes, where friends and family join me in what has now become known as college radio, assembled 9 years ago.)

Relive college radio from the late 90’s as it actually happened! Experience five edited presentations from the earliest days of this very program, as they were originally heard on KWVA in Eugene Oregon, broadcast at 88.1 FM. For the fist time since their original air dates these programs are being heard again, and at the correct speed in most cases!  Join a clumsy and youthful Austin Rich as he stumbles through the act of playing College Radio DJ, and listen to some authentic late 90’s rock as we journey through the decades.

This is part of our 14th Anniversary Explosion that’s been happening all throughout the year, and to a smaller extent, part of an on-going attempt to accurately archive the history of this program in a way that’s accessible to listeners.  As many of the programs from the early days are not complete, and in many cases missing entirely, I’ve been creating these shortened “edited” versions of these shows, to give you a taste of what it was like in these early days.  As there are still a few shows to come in this series – and still many others for you to enjoy – you may want to slap this feed into your podcast-catching device of choice, as it will keep you up to date with all the appropriate episodes, and give you a good cross-section of the entire history of the program.

Of these particular episodes, it is fascinating to attempt to recreate the circumstances that these programs were recorded under.  When Kyle would visit, he would often join me when I would go to the radio station.  Both Geni and Pat were roommates at one point or another, and Chris was a near-permanent fixture in the legendary Blitzhäus where we used to live and party in the olden days.  These shows evoke a lot of memories, not just of the music that we played, but the parties, shows, girlfriends, boyfriends, arguments, D&D games, and the hundreds of other things that went down in the late 90’s.  In an era before cell phones, .mp3s, regular internet access, or very much money to speak of, we still created culture, built mythologies, and had a great time doing in.  If only some of that nostalgia can seep through these tape-hiss-infused recordings, then I will feel as if my work here is done.

A request to listeners: if anyone can identify the Man Is The Bastard song that I play during the “Track Night” segment, please let me know!  I’ve been trying to identify that one for a while now.

Many apologies for the lateness of the program.  Hopefully this is a fluke occurrence, but you know how it goes.

See you in seven!

Bit Players In The College Radio Drama That Is Blasphuphmus Radio I (KWVA Years)
(Featuring edited highlights from four early episodes, where my roommates joined me in the studio for silly, late night, college radio fun, assembled nine years ago.)

In the earliest days of the program, my notion of having guests on my program was to invite my roommates into the studio, while we were all drunk, to listen to some college radio.  Now, in the distant future, I’m asking you to join us on a similar journey.  Highlighting four episodes from 1998, here are my roommates, my friends, and my guests, from the embryonic era that is so near to this programs beginning.

I have to say, with the complete perspective that hindsight so acutely offers, it is interesting to comb through the airchecks, and revisit these programs.  I’m friends with nearly all of these people to this very day, and each of them have moved on to pursue their own lives and interests in amazing ways.  These programs are small cross-sections, a blip on the radar from their perspective.  But to me, these were important evenings, fun times that I happen to have a documented record of, and that is so rare for anyone who considers their youth.  Hopefully, some of the joy I get out of these seeps through as you listen to these recordings today.

For the first time since I recorded these shows, they are hearing the light of day, and at the proper speed!  The tape recordings were often too slow – or too fast – to make much sense, but modern technology has allowed me to fix these errors.  To my knowledge, only these people have ever heard these recordings before, as this program began in a time before podcasts, and before digital distribution.  My hope is that this functions as a record of those times, and a sampling of the various formats this show had in the early days.

Many apologies for the delay getting this episode posted.  There were a number of personal and production delays, mostly because I wanted these episodes to be presented at their proper speeds, and other recording opportunities popped up at the last minute.  Fortunately, these opportunities have manifested in shows that you can download now, and one that you will hear in the future.  These opportunities involve live music, and also some cool Sci-Fi remixes.  I’m hoping to get back on track, and there may well be another episode this week to make up for this, at least a Mini-Cast.  So, stay tuned.

That’s all for this Memorial Day.  Thanks again for indulging me.

See you real soon.

The Hobbit (KWVA Years)

The Greatest Adventure
The Greatest Adventure

The Hobbit (KWVA Years)
(Featuring a nearly-complete retrocast from 12 August 1998, recreated nine years ago, wherein I present an audio version of the story of 1977 animated feature film, The Hobbit.)

In preparation for the impending new film version, join us for a special retrocast of this rare Audio Essay from 1998, where we present the story of the 1977 animated classic, The Hobbit, contrasted against Mike Patton’s Adult Themes For Voice, Mel Brooks & Marlo Thomas, and a host of other College Radio classics. This episode has not been heard since it was originally broadcast on KWVA, and offers listeners another glimpse into the development of our Audio Essay format that has come to dominate much of what we do now. A nearly complete show – only missing 13 minutes of content – this program has been reconstructed using the surviving recordings and documented playlist, offering a close approximation of the kind of show we began doing all those years ago.

Originally scheduled to be a Holden Craft collaboration, circumstances prevented him from showing up until the very end of the show. I had originally planned on just playing “The Greatest Adventure,” among other things, but with time on my hands, Orson Bean and friends got a little more air time than anticipated. It was very much like an Unexpected Party. In the end, I think the results weren’t bad, and it set the tone for a future format that has since become a big part of the show. Heavily influenced by Over The Edge and the usual musical format of KWVA, I had always wanted to bring more sampling and oddness to the program. This, along with the previously presented Flight F-I-N-A-L episode, were probably as close to that vision for the show as I ever got. Fortunately, I’m easily distractable, and had many other visions for the program, too.

A note about the recording: the source tape is a little distorted, and the overall sound clips a little throughout the program. The record of The Hobbit itself, that I used to make the recording, was salvaged from my then-girlfriend’s garage, where it had languished in a filthy box (along with the Marlo Thomas record) for some time. I cleaned it up the best I could, but there is a fair amount of surface noise, or at least, more than normal. Additionally: at some point after the initial recording of the show, for some reason, I excised all the commercials and two or three songs (the names and artist of which completely escape me now). Originally, I also cut out a number of other (yet left them on the playlist), and furthermore removed The Hobbit segments to put them on another tape. So, this show has been reconstructed as best as could be, using my own memory and the surviving record to produce this show. Keep in mind that all of these things happened years ago, before podcasts or digital archiving (on the scale that its available now) was not possible. I never imagined that anyone else would ever hear this, or that there would be some value (or some way) to present this show in a “complete” form. So, all of this is a cicuitous way of saying: this is as good as this one gets. At least it makes me happy.

As with the Flight F-I-N-A-L show, the musical selections used in this one are somewhat curious and confusing at times. Unlike the vast archive I’ve accumulated over the years since this show, my collection was quite small in the late ’90’s, and much of my radio show was dependent on what the station had to offer. This meant that planning a show was sort of a crapshoot, and I often just played something I wanted to hear, over something that made sense, storywise. Some of the song choices are quite inspired: “Where The Hell Is Bill?,” “Ride of the Valykries,” etc. Some song choices are just confusing. At this time in the show’s history, a running “gag” was to play a handful of Mike Patton songs every show, and while that seems to make sense to me at the time (when you listen to the shows over time), they seem like odd selections now. I debated redoing this show entirely at one point, but I like the naive charm and rough, learning-curve qualities this one illustrates. If I only ever did rad shows, right from the beginning, then where’s the fun in that?

Special Thanks to my amazing girlfriend, who is on vacation and who I miss dearly; Lyra Cyst, houseguest and tolerant friend who did not mind that I spent a lot of time while she was visiting recording and editing this episode, Holden Craft, for giving me a ride home after I originally broadcast this program in 1998, and kiisu d’salyss, for, well… you know.

I know that I’ve been, essentially, in re-runs lately, as I re-present all of these old episodes. While most of the material I’m posting now has never been publicly available (at least, not since the original broadcast), there is a certain amount of, “Yes, but…” when it comes to repackaging old-as-new, etc. I have tried to balance this a bit, with new shows mixed with the old shows. My hope is that I can soon wrap up the trip down memory lane shows – of which I believe there will be three or four more – so that a good cross section of the best segments from those early shows are available again. It’s a project with a definite end, and I’m exited about wrapping it up and moving on to something new. I’ve really enjoyed the work I’ve done this year on this program, and I think that with this in the can, the other ideas I have yet to get to will be next.

As you may have noticed, various life obligations have completely destroyed our production schedule as of late. For this I apologize, but as the “we” here at Blasphuphmus Radio is actually a “me,” little can be done to avoid this. However, if all goes well today, we should be able to get back on track with Episode 169. I make no promises, except that someday, we’ll either get back on track, or I will officially take a week off and pretend that we’re back on track. You know how it goes.

In the meantime: In a hole in a ground lived A Hobbit…

Flight F-I-N-A-L (KWVA Years)
(Featuring a retrocast of a program from 20 January 1999, as part of our 14th Anniversary Explosion!)

(Originally broadcast 9 years ago.)

Join us for a special 14th Anniversary Retrocast of a program from 1999, where we present the fascinating audio-drama that dares to create, “…a dramatic comparison to death.”  Presented in this episode: three quarters of the original broadcast (recreated from cassette recordings and partial playlists that have survived into the modern era), PLUS!: A brand new A Minute With The Pope, a feature that comes and goes with the whims of The Pope Himself, and a confused phone call from DJ Really Sloppy, who has recently become unstuck in time and seems to be having trouble figuring out exactly what that means for a person as confused as him.  Plus a couple of Phantom Surfers tracks for good measure.

As you can tell from this show – which approximates what it was like to hear us when we first started – our murky origins have many of the elements that came to dominate our format now.  I knew I wanted to play music I liked, and as a huge Over The Edge fan, I knew I wanted to do some form of re-mix on the air.  But as a novice, just getting started, my first forays into this realm were not as skilled as they have become.  That’s not to say that they were bad, but that they were of an amateur level.  The ideas were in place, but the execution was not what it would become.

I remember finding a copy of this record – one that I had heard sampled and began to wonder exactly what it could be – and knew instantly that sooner or later it would appear on the show.  In what form, I wasn’t quite sure.  But one night I showed up to do the program solo, noticed that I had packed it along with a bunch of other stuff, and it was then that I went to work.  The results – or, at least, most of them – are audible in the show you’re hearing today.

Note: If anyone can identify the Satan’s Pilgrim’s song included in this playlist, please let me know.  Thanks!

See you in seven.

DJ Really Sloppy, who has become unstuck in time, calls into the show from a darkened room containing a cat, and is not entirely sure what name he knows me by, or what time he is currently a part of.  Thinking it is 1999, the time period of my show, he briefly flirts with changing the time stream, then gets confused.

Ramen City Radio (KWVA Years)

Ramen City Radio (KWVA Years)
(Featuring excerpts from the earliest days of our program featuring one of the most important figures in college radio history: The Ramen City Kid.)

(This show was originally assembled 9 years ago.)

As we continue our journey through the nostalgic origins of this program for our 14th Anniversary, we cannot overlook the influence of none other than The Ramen City Kid. Roommate, zinester, bread baker, and much much more, I met him in 1994, and we’ve been friends (and often roommates) ever since. His taste has affected my interest in film, music, radio, people, books, and everything in between, and without him, I would not be the person (or DJ) I am today. It is to him that this episode is dedicated, as we listen to edited highlights from five of his recorded appearances on this program in 1998, and one additional section of a show I did with Captain Morgain in 1999.

There were others, of course, but time has not been kind, and many of these programs went un-recorded, or lost in the years since. Still, these excerpts serve to give you a sense of what the program was like in those days, with and ear for emphasizing his voice and musical selections as best as possible. None of these shows exist in their complete forms, but I’ve done my best to present the spirit of these shows for a modern audience. I hope you enjoy the results.

As a point of order: aside from the spots, and voice overs, all the music heard in this program were taken from the original broadcasts as listed below. Those songs were actually played that night. I’ve created loops for the voice overs, but those songs really were heard in those days.

This one is a concentrated blast of nostalgic radio, without any of the bells and whistles. Hopefully there will be more bells and whistles in future shows.

See you in seven!

It Looks Like Thousands of Stars – Expanded Edition (KWVA Years)
(Featuring two shows, one aired on 18 July 2007, and another aired on 17 April 2012, reviewing some classic KWVA material.)

Here’s a pair of episodes from 9 and 14 years ago, which themselves were offering edited versions of material from the late 90’s, and both with the theme of the program becoming unstuck in time… somehow. In the first hour, the dial keeps spinning through time, landing on different moments from my program, past, present, and future. (All with a Negativland radio show at the center of this cut-up.) Then, in hour two, I keep bouncing around throughout the 90’s era shows that I have recordings off, delivering an overview of the stranger moments that show offered.

The Legendary Holden Craft (KWVA Years)
(Featuring a one hour edit of a show originally broadcast on 18 November 1998, and an hour of selected edits from shows broadcast in 1998 and 1999.)

Here’s a pair of episodes from 13 years ago, which themselves were offering edited version of shows from 10 years prior to that, which cover the various appearances that Holden Craft made on my early shows. Holden was a hilarious and strange feature of the program in those early days, and those shows offer a kind of comedy that only he and I can perform together. This photo is of us in 2007, which might have been the last time that we got to see each other in person.
