Ilios is my idol

Everyone has someone somewhere that they look up to. A parent, a sibling, a movie star, a super hero, a rock star. Sometimes it's a friend. I look up to Ilios. He is very, very silly and he is a drummer. Drummers are the best part of a band. The Subhuman knows lots of drummers, and they are all very awesome, but I like Ilios best because he hangs out with me. He's going to teach me how to drum like him and maybe even someday even dance like him, too!

Drummers have many good skills. He has very quick reflexes, and can dodge the Subuman's fire breath! When I grow up, I want to be a quick, skillful drummer, and silly, just like Ilios.

get up on stage

Don't just sit there!
Make some noise!

an excuse to make noise

New Years is just
an excuse to
make noise
& dance &
kiss people.
But if you think
about it,
shouldn't every day
be that way?
Why should we wait
for a particular day,
when every day
is a full orbit
of the sun
from that same day
last year?
And what's the thing about
New Years resolutions?
I think I shall
make one -
I resolute
to make
more noise
this year!

music at the lounge

I got to hang out at the Now Lounge with a bunch of other musicians and drummers like me on New Years Eve.
It was fun.

What began as a night of lovely
organized sets by very talented music folks became a wild free-for-all of percusion and sound that was delightfully fun.
Mum even got the Subhuman up dancing. He was there with the band "Camarillo", and there was DeeJay Scootz, and DJ Fuu, and a large number of drummers and other music people, and food and champagne, and funny hats, and those funny little horns people blow at new years. It was great!
