So where did the name "Floating Dogs" come from ?
As it turns out, I was/am a Peter Gabriel fan starting with his work in the English band Genesis and then subsequently as he started off as a solo artist. He ended up with a solo career and one of his albums was the soundtrack to the movie "Birdy" starring younger versions of both Matthew Modine and Nicolas Cage. I've always been a sucker for moody rather dark electronic music which P.G. used to write. Anways, there's a tune on that album called "Floating Dogs", for some reason that name stuck with me as well as the song. Maybe someday, if clearances allow I can use it as a loop on this site. In the meantime, if you are curious, go buy the record.
What is the site for ?
I want to use this space to document and write about my other passions which includes music, photograpy, surfing and my film project "Deeper Shade of Surf", a documentary I 've been working on about early black surfers....
I'll try to be consistent about writing in my blog.
For now, here are links I find interesting:
