About this site:
There are all kinds of temptations when you do a website, even a blog. Another “How Wonderful it is to be ME” site? Save it for Face Book. “The Wonderful Things I Do, or Buy or Wear” site? Save it for Twitter. “Where I ate and who I know and the scenery was so sublime?” No. This site is for the moments we catch ourselves, when I catch myself, in not so deep thought. Which is, unapologetically, often.
The stories we hold, the stories we tell each other, the stories we only tell ourselves are all important. What we’ve seen and who we’ve been, filtered and refried, makes us who we are, how we respond to our world, how we behave towards ourselves and each other. We are the characters in our own novel, the changes and lyrics in our own songs. All the places, all the poetry of our lives comes out of all of us, one way or another. It doesn’t matter if it’s a MIDI controller, a wrench, a carving tool, a brush, a keyboard or a golf club — we tell our stories. We are the summation of what we’ve collected. And when we open the box on that collection and all the bits and pieces come tumbling out? That’s the gold mine. Here are some of mine. I look forward to yours.
About Phil Huston: Let’s get the this out of the way. First, I’ve been in or around the music business since I was a teenager. As a sound designer, keyboard player, synthesizer programmer, artist relations manager, demo clinician, rep, electronic musical instrument product manager…blah, blah, blah. Does that matter? In this context, probably not. Aside from those things I don’t know much. What I do know is that we all collect experiences and memories through our unique histories, and that’s what I’m interested in these days. Because music and words are always best served in the telling of stories.

1977 on the top. Right at six months on the bottom. If you know where hair goes when it leaves, clue me.
