Tape Land 81 – Thoughts & Rain (July 2003)

1:53:12 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

I made this tape to record my thoughts on the status of my creative projects, and to come up with plans for the future. This was just a few months after I started The Overnightscape in 2003. My ideas were all over the place and quite unrealistic, but somehow, all these years later (February 2019 now), it’s all kind of worked out…
