Marian Call, Molly Lewis, Patrick Race, and Seth Boyer create a sweded version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” video, rewriting the song using only the 1000 most common English words — in the style of Randall Munroe’s Up-Goer Five diagram.  Credits and more details on Youtube or at Alaskarobotics.com — and hey, this little homemade video made it to the official David Bowie website and the front page of xkcd.com!

After six long years, Got to Fly has returned on CD!

Got to Fly is my second album from 2008, produced by Quantum Mechanix and inspired by Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.  Although young and raw and eclectic, it remains one of my fans’ favorite records, and I sing songs from it most every night on tour.

The first printing was a limited edition of 1000 signed and numbered discs, and those have been sold out for years.  But this November, by your many many requests, I have released a new CD in a recycled materials CD wallet, with all new artwork by Karen Luke Fildes (yup, my Mom)!  They’re not in fancy jewel cases, it’s a little more reserved packaging than the limited edition, but I am sure you’ll enjoy it.  It costs $12.95 plus S&H, and through Bandcamp we ship to Canada and abroad at or below cost.
