Taiwan - an introduction

I created a video in Taiwan a while ago, and I'm hoping to try this embedded video thing.

We shall see (Or perhaps we won't)...

No Answers in Sight

I don't believe this. I finally posted a video to YouTube, and it's a song that I wrote over 12 years ago. Not only that, but all the video footage is the same age. It's here. I bring you an original song, "Answers" as recored by me and my friends, posing as a band called Hydrogen. Damn, it was fun.

The great part, though, is that I've been wanting to make this music video since we shot the footage those many years ago. We shot a lot of footage with the intention of using it like this, we just didn't have the technical know-how to create it. So after lugging around the cassettes for years, I finally decided to give it a go. Thanks to Chris, J.R, Allan, Adam, Brooke, and everyone else who was present for those crazy times. Also a shout to the Heorot Pub in Muncie, Indiana, who let us play pretty much whenever we felt like it for about a year back then.

"Taiwanjason's" Shameless Self Promotion

Hey kids!

I'm still here, posting for no good reason other than that to mention that I have decided to enter the American Idol Songwriting Competition. I couldn't resist, though I had a hard time figuring out which, if any, of my songs, would be worth it. The song I submitted is listed on my Taiwanjason website at the CBC. I'm not saying which one.

I like saying that. It almost sounds like I'm not anonymous. The CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) hosts Canadian bands who have the time and the interest to upload their songs, apparently as many as you'd like. I like to think that this is one of the few times I'm getting to take advantage of my new status as an impending Canadian.

Anyway, check out the site. And put links to it on your own sites, too!

Canadian Content

I'm entering the 21st century at last! If you click on the title above you will find a link to my songs on the CBC-3 Radio site. These are songs I've recorded at home, mostly while living in Taiwan. If I can improve the quality, I may also upload some old band recordings of my songs. Of course, nothing digital is ever easy... I'll just try and add some more stuff as I spend the hours in front of the computer required to do it.

Good thing I'm not an E-bay junkie, or I'd never get anything done.
