I think Nick is playing at the same venue again on Halloween; this time with Shae on lead vocals.

Happy birthday, Casey Minnick!

Michael Ian Brisbane


A couple nights ago I headed up I-5 to check out The Brisbane Project. I’ve seen Michael Ian Brisbane and Mike Pugh before in Sylent Storm and Bloodmoon Warning, but this was just their second gig in this configuration, and they exceeded expectations.

Mike Pugh is also in Living Loving Led, which features Natasha Neece on vocals, and she joined them for a Led Zeppelin cover on this evening.

Today’s photo comes from Ashland Pond, looking west, less than 48 hours after the Almeda Fire began a couple hundred feet behind this location. The fire headed northwest, blown by strong winds, from here and destroyed much of Talent and Phoenix in the subsequent 16 hours or so.

The smoke was from hundreds of homes burning in Talent and Phoenix.

One of my favorite places to visit in town is located close to the origin of the horrific Almeda Fire that began on September 8, 2020 and razed over 600 homes, mostly in Phoenix and Talent, Oregon.

I rode my bike down Almeda Drive and Glendower Street today, like many times before, but everything is different. The homes are all still there, and there doesn’t appear to be any damage to the structures, but the fields nearby are a wasteland coated in inches of ash.

Here is a photo of Ashland Pond from less than five months ago.
