Hollywood Blog / Alex Eats Ionized Excrement

This morning at the studio, Alex was cleaning out the air filters ("ionizer", he just corrected me with a didactic tone, ever the doctinaire) with a white towel, and a most unsavory smudge appeared. It was, how should I put it, the poop from the room. Essentially, these filters had accrued weeks or even months worth of particulates, if air could defecate, this would be its excrement. Wait, air can defectate, and did, and the fudge was on Alex's towel. He's been ill, did I mention that? He's been under the weather for about a week. Knowing that, I felt emboldened to issue a challenge.

Hollywood Blog / Love Abounds

Fun news. John Shanks just recorded all the guitars on The River, which may be the first single on the new album. Sort of like having Zoro dice cucs for your salad. Or taking the space shuttle to go to 7-Eleven. It was an amazing day. First, John's talking to my producer Alex Gibson- "hey, I'll play on Stuart's record". Really? What day this month could work? "Right now would be good. Let's do it right now." So, on a moment's notice, we run the song over to John's studio, which is next door, and he spends the night recording guitars on it.

Hollywood Blog / yeah

my family arrived yesterday in L.A. YAY!! oh my god i was so so thrilled to see them. it was a night in heaven last night, just getting to hug my daughters and wife after these past few weeks being alone in L.A. i missed them insanely. we went back to the house and just played on the floor, content and giddy to be together. i had the house prepared for them; hello kitty bed for my daughter, pink flowers for my wife, diapers for my youngest. i can't say how awesome it was to sleep next to them.

Hollywood Blog / River

Just cut a vocal to the new song River. literally gave me CHILLS. it's such a HIT. like, holy shit hit. first time you hear it.


everyone i've ever loved
met in the river
and was afraid of
getting in the river
now i'm falling
and i

feel a million arms around me
when i get in the river
every color of light surrounds me
when i get in the river
every thought i have dissolves
here in the river
i'm gonna let love wash it all
here in the river

get in the river

Hollywood Blog / Encore Deja Vu

today we started working on Encore, Deja Vu. This is a very trippy hip hop song. We have only just begun with it. It shows signs of being a classic. Right now it's in Nate Jenkins hands. He's ensconced in his dungeon of technova love, shaping it. Lyrics:


Just found out I'm playing a five night stand at the Fringe Festival in Dublin, Ireland this September. My CD release tour will begin with London, Totness, then five nights in Dublin, then Amsterdam. I am so stoked!

Hollywood Blog / Day .... Sky God

Right now in the studio we're working on Sky God. This is a new song I wrote after I saw that movie with Mandy Moore in it where she plays a Christian fundamentalist girl. I was inspired to write a song from the perspective of her character. So, I wrote Sky God, mostly sincere, actually. Just envying (loosely) the simplicity of a mythic belief system that has all the answers pre-fab.
