mitre on DVD!

well...not really. in fact, it's not mitre at all.

First things first: I'm a huge film nerd. There's an amazing company called The Criterion Collection that puts out a lot of foreign, arthouse, and indie movies on DVD. I've been a fan for years. In February, they announced that they were going to put out a special edition DVD of Jim Jarmusch's Night on Earth, which I've always loved. They allowed people to email them with questions for Jarmusch, and he picked some and answered them for a feature on the disc. My copy arrived today, and much to my surprise, mine was one of the questions he answered!

So yeah. I'm a huge dork, but I think that's really cool.

mitre goes digital

for quite some time, I've been getting frustrated with my 4-track. sure, it's probably just that I need to clean the heads to get rid of that annoying hiss, but it's still a pain to get the files to CD. so about a month ago I bought a Line 6 Toneport UX1:

in a word: awesome. I'm not using it to put all kinds of cheeseball synths on my stuff or anything; I'm basically just using it as a digital multitracker.

and now, I present a new song (given the unfortunate temporary title "untitled thingo") right here. as the guy who used to man the wrap station at my college dining hall used to say, enyoy.
