Some music I recorded back (with various friends) in Montana between 2002 and 2004. I’ll keep adding more as it surfaces.
SoulPancake is number four in WIRED’s “What’s WIRED This Month” playlist in the January 2010 issue. Rainn graces the mag with a little shot of his near perfect Michelangelo-esque physique, and we get a nice blurb as well! It’s on page 48 in the magazine.
It’s really no secret that I love 37signals. I religiously use their products and I like to think that we run our company very much the same way they run theirs. That’s why when SoulPancake was mentioned on the 37signals Product Blog, I was almost more excited than when we were profiled on ABC’s Nightline.
Unfortunately, he thinks he’s good at both, until I crush him. So, he responds with what he thinks are verbal assaults of rhyming fury, only to be left dazzled when I respond. Below… are the two latest exchanges between Blair and myself.
After exchanging the names of my dogs with a friendly neighbor at the park, I was once again asked what my Australian Shepherd’s name stood for. “Ryu” is what I call him, and it actually means quite a few things. Allow me to share:
Ryu is probably most popular as being the lead street fighter video game character. He was widely chosen by many people because of his magical “Hadouken” power spheres. As he was the lead character ever since the first Street Fighter, those familiar with the video game should recall that not many characters could overpower Ryu, if any at all.
The image above is called “Concentric Hadouken” and showcases how magically fantastic the “essence” of Ryu is. Besides being an incredibly iconic video game character, the name and energy span deep into Japanese sub culture, including early graphic design and digital art.
