Since completing my entry for this year’s RPM challenge, it looks like what was supposed to be Caustic Reverie album nine will now be number ten. Submitted for your approval: Rust Shore.

nugatory : Of little value; trifling; ineffective
Charles took off his coat and put it across the mud puddle for his fiance, a chivalrous, though nonetheless nugatory action, as this caused his companion to fall into a three-foot deep sink-hole after stepping on his jacket.
I’ve known about the RPM Challenge (create an album in the month of February) for several months now but I’ve been hoping to finish a project that I started around the end of January first. I got sidetracked by a remix contest for Steven Wilson’s new album Insurgentes. I’ve finished the remix and I’m more than 3/5 through with Helix, but seeing that I had a week left to get my stuff together for RPM, I spent most of the weekend working on something new. I’ve completed three fairly minimal drones for this project that total 56 minutes of music. I haven’t decided on titles for the songs or started on album art.

pinchbeck: something counterfeit; an imitation
Carley didn’t need an expert jeweler to tell her that her boyfriend’s engagement ring was a knock-off, as the “gold” turned her fingers green and the pinchbeck diamond started to melt in the humidity.

I mentioned earlier that my third Caustic Reverie album has now been pressed. Here’s some pictures and links for you to listen and perhaps buy it.
I’ve put three of my albums up on CD Baby.
Absent, Mute, and Stochastic Resonance are for sale for $10.00 each, or $5.00 each if you buy all three. If there’s a good reaction, I’ll see about making the rest of the catalog available.
By all means, feel free to download and listen before you buy.

quantal: relating to, or having only two experimental alternatives
Daryl’s career, and quite possibly his survival, was quantal of him perfectly landing a fifty-foot jump over a shark tank full of rabid badgers on a specially modified, nitro-powered unicycle; the fact that he had agreed to do it while carrying a basket of poisonous snakes lead some to believe that this would probably be his last stunt either way.
I was sick for a few days and got out of the habit of updating this. I’ve gotten Stochastic Resonance pressed through Kunaki and sent copies of the first three albums to CD Baby. If the response is good, I’ll look into getting the whole Caustic Reverie and TheForgotton catalog on there.
I’ve completed an entry in the Steven Wilson contest for his track Abandoner. My remix is entitled Abandoner-Hypothermia.
Work on Helix continues, though I’m finding myself playing Left 4 Dead a little more than I should if I want to get it out before March. The call of the Purp compels me.
Mute is the next album to be released on cd, and it is available for $6.00 pre-shipping charges from Kunaki.
