    September 2020: Mr. Bash & Mr. Link

    I apologize for the hot mess that some of this audio is. The chains recording came out like something that could compete with that video on YouTube of the lady "grapefruiting your man" ha. And the final bit is long and probably boring, but years down the road me and the other Randies will remember how that song and video took up so much time and so many versions!
    - The quality sound in Randy's "Captain's Chair"
    - A great variety of sounds from the porch on a random weekday
    - The sounds of our first outing for live music since the pandemic hit!
    - Trilety and Doug share some school trauma stories
    - A new instrument - The Chains!
    - For posterity: The Randies having (hopefully) one last viewing of THE VIDEO.

Random things that will probably make you laugh?

Auditory short stories that serve as a peek into Doug's fairly chaotic, but funny and observant brain.

Adoughable

Fizzle Like a Flood is an audio adventure with Doug. As a talented musician himself, he does a great job curating the overlooked but totally intriguing sounds of life as well as the the talented sounds of other musicians. Plus he’s stellar at capturing those most hilarious moments that would have gone forgotten if not for his recording. Check it out. . .you’ll laugh, and maybe even pee your pants! In a good way.
