The World Is A Vampire



Fall is my favorite season; the leaves changing color, the nights growing longer, and of course, Halloween. In that spirit, I wanted to give you all a gift to enjoy as part of your spooky festivities. I decided to record a cover of Bullet With Butterfly Wings by The Smashing Pumpkins and it is available to you all, absolutely and 100% for free. Just click below to download! Thank you so much to everyone for your continued support of The Ghost And The Grace!

The Death Of Georgia Pacific

Yesterday I went on an expedition with two wonderful folks, Jettie and Natalie, into the heart of what used to Bellingham's 37 acre industrial center, Georgia Pacific, which ran from 1963 until 2001. Eventually the site will be completely demolished and some sort of massive, park/marina/shopping center, who knows? But until then it will remain a magical landmark of the city. This is a short film I made about the death of this massive site. Enjoy.

Sufjan Stevens Loves Too Much

Finally, after long last, Sufjan Stevens is finally preforming new material. During his current tour he has busted out at least 4 new songs, all of which are outrageously rad. A few things you will notice right off the bat, first, there is much less banjo and much more electric guitar, in fact, there is no banjo on these. Second, unlike most previous tracks, there has been the welcome addition of drum programming and other electronics, and third, these songs are loooooooong.

The standout track absolutely has the be the shamelessly poppy "There's Too Much Love", which boasts one of the strongest hooks I have heard in ages. If this song is on the next record I would not be surprised if Sufjan's popularity entered the next stratosphere. I guess they would probably have to trim off about 3 minutes first.

Check out "There's Too Much Love" below.
