I’m currently getting through writing the track “Piper” as I record it. It’s challenging my guitar playing in a way I never thought possible, and I’m not one to edit the crap out of my guitar lines like most pros do (literally cutting every note and align it with the rhythm). I just can’t be that obsessive with something like that. I’ve listened to too much classic rock lately that I’m much more comfortable with sticking with the best take. I either play it well or I delete it. There’s something more human about it to me, and I don’t have to answer to anyone about it. But, I must say I’m very happy with the direction the track is going (think rockabilly-punk-kinda).
There’s a quote that Walt Disney said, something like “Everyone needs deadlines”. It really puts the pressure on to complete any project. But I’m quite certain I’ll complete this one. I know this is all talk, but if the first two tracks are any indication of how good this record is gonna be…
I really feel like this music is really the start of something for me. A real way to project my imagination.
I’m very excited to get this finished and start my next record idea I got kicking around in my head.
Trying to talk about the creative things I’ve done in the past, and what’s to come for the future. If you listen as far as my cat purring at the start of this, I thank you!
Playing “Tearaway” for PS4. Boy, is this a really cute, and fun game!

WAIFU is well under underway, and I’ve finished a new track. An ode to Chun-Li from Street Fighter! You can download it here!
The 1 hour finale of my story of being in The Rabid Whole.
I talk about the period of about June 2013 to the end of 2014, and my thoughts on the end, and what I think we did wrong.
I realized that I hadn’t explained why I’ve been getting my leg infections. I’d been through radiation tests, tons of blood work, and samples of the swelling pus that would appear from my leg, and nothing came up that was wrong. My doctor said if there is nothing it’s “idiopathic”. To me it’s the physical manifest of stress, and unhappiness. Thankfully I hadn’t had an outbreak since about July 2015.

Footage me playing “Rise Of The Tomb Raider” for PS4.
Photo of my reflection from my adventure hat taken early 2012 on our way to SXSW when we stopped at a hotel, and everyone with us decided to go out for supper, and I stayed behind to be alone.
Here’s my statement about The Rabid Whole I did back in early 2015: https://radutron.com/2015/06/08/i-gotta-tell-ya-folks/
This is a long one so you might want to get some snacks…
In this second part, I’m recalling my time in The Rabid Whole from end of 2010 to mid-2013. Things got pretty serious.
The song “Metro” from The Rabid Whole’s second album REFUGE is posted at the end of the video.
The live still after the game footage is from a gopro taped to my guitar during a show in Dallas, TX, back in 2013, touring with Dope Stars Inc.
Enjoy my terrible playing of Pinball Quest for NES.
Yes, it’s an emulator. I own the cartridge. I don’t have the means to capture my retro consoles.
