Tales from the Ancient Future

The Ancient Future is coming! But until then you can read my tales from the ancient future on my blog I will periodically be publishing stories about people who are living in or near the ancient future. Characters include Pete Longhorn, Emmanuel Maxwell and Johann Phillip Reis who are caught in the tangled web of time manipulation brought on by Bell Labs of the ancient future, Faraday Maissilo, the geologist who has found a gap in the layers of the earth, and others that have yet to be revealed.

Animated Paint - Art by Lauren Gregory

Hello again,
I'd like to introduce everyone to another good friend of mine, Miss Lauren Gregory. Currently, based out of Chicago, Lauren is an inspiring painter/photographer. Sometimes combining these 2 media, she also creates animations that are visually captivating and occasionally accompanied by audio. Lauren is also a musician, super fun to hang out with, and an excellent maker of mixtapes. Here's a link where you can find some of her work...

Live at Moog - PL / MMW / & more....

Hey everybody, I thought this was a pretty cool thing that Moog is doing right now where they invite artists to the Moog HQ in Asheville, NC and let them have fun with any equipment they can find. The most recent one was Pretty Lights but this little series has also featured MMW, Matisyahu and Yo La Tengo, just to name a few. I think its worth investigating....

Fresh Hats Tight Beats: Headed to the M-town to Get Down

Good morning to all Winslows and soon-to-be-Winslows alike... So I'm pretty stoked to be going home for the FHTB show this weekend for the first of a few shows we have booked in beautiful Memphis, TN. It's a show of firsts for us. While it will be my first performance as Fresh Hats Tight Beats without P.Buck and Leigh, this will be Matt in the Hat's first show as a member. I'm excited about it. We have some killer material lined up. Also, this is the first time a Winslow group has played at the Full Moon Club in Memphis since the Go Show a couple of years ago. It's bound to be a funky, good time. We will be sharing the stage with Infinite Heights, the sonically ass-whooping beats and treats from bass man extraordinaire Jon Furr (For those who don't know, Jon Furr and I had a band together a few years back called King Otis-which also featured Taktix on the mic). Playing alongside Furr is Khari Wynn, a ridiculous guitar virtuoso who is in from a stint on the road with Public Enemy. He's also played with Bootsie and many other famous cats. We will be joined by our good friend and emcee, Taktix, for a few songs and we also plan on doing a jam at the end of the night with Infinite Heights. This should be a great time indeed. Well, I have to get out of here for now. Matt should be over soon for an all-day rehearsal session for our show. Stay tuned for some audio and/or video from the show. Can't wait to see some of those familiar faces I haven't seen in a minute. M-town. Get down. Ready or not , here we come. Peace, z.matt.33

Dillon Snider cooks it up FRESH in the Chucktown...

I just wanted to introduce everyone to one of my best friends since 5th Grade, Mr. Dillon Snider. This guy is an incredibly creative professional chef in Charleston, SC and has always been an inspiration to me and my culinary endeavors. I hope you will find the same to be true for yourself. I found a short interview and a description of the restaurant where he is currently the Chef and wanted to share it. Enjoy!
