I was on the rim of the Grand Canyon when i heard the rumblings of Michael Jackson "had an heart attack" I was immediately sick...... I'm looking out across this beautiful reduction of earth.
It was and is beautiful! (we're out on an outting for Mark Pirro's bachelor party) Then 20 minutes later Tony tells me he's dead......... I could not and would not except this news...... So, kept asking him "are you sure"?!  "are you sure"?!!! He said " yeah they are talking bout it on CNN" (not that I put that much stock in CNN) but, it sounded like it was true, the way he was reacting to his friend on the other line. Then I realized it was true.. I started to cry and wished Julie was with me cause, I knew she was just as crushed as I was, along with my kids. Our son Oscar was a huge Michael Jackson fan, he dances to him all the time. Two days before we left my daughter Stella said "listen to this song Oscar and i sing together" The song was "Ben" they sang it a'capella. It was AWESOME!! 
That was comforting for me, remembering that moment. 
This is the first time I've had internet service. (in Arizona) I'm still in shock.....
I haven't seen any TV out here and haven't look for any news. 
Wanted to express my heartfelt loss for this man and his kids.
He was one of the most spirited human beings "WE" have been graced with.
What a loss.
Just go watch him as a kid on youtube and see it that "wonder" that we all have.
It's just that, he knew it early on and we got the privilege to get experience it.
I will miss him along with my family.
Take Care,

I'm typing to you from 30,000 ft in a hot air balloon, called delta.
They have wifi, and it's the first time, I've ever got to do this, (you know be on the internet at this altitude) so, had to 
give you guys and gals a shout> am i coming in clear?
On my way back from the NYC, had a fantastic time, too short.
Will be back in July.

Hi, people of the world.
HOPE all is well with you! (and if not) IT WILL TURN AROUND!
We'll as you can see, I haven't put up that song. 
Which means, my lunch with Adam turned out to be unproductive, in ah since of, figuring out the posting of said song. (I'm on it) Wasn't his fault, I didn't even bring it up so, I got that going for me which is nice.
But, we had a GREAT visit and good food and a few drinks and met a couple of friends of his from his work. Great guys.
I also, stayed around to watch this band. He used to be in the Redwalls, played guitar.
He was at the place we were at and we saw each other. Cant remember his name, (I suck at that) faces i know it's just the name of the face that escapes me everytime. (So, if we ever bump into each other and i remember you with some sort of enthusiasm  means I remember you, just not your name. Don't take personally.) It's a handicap.
The bands name escapes me. They were headlining. I came into the club (pianos) while the band prior to them was still on. They had 2 songs left, and they knocked my socks off!
They gave me the ROCK i needed at the time, wish i had seen more. Rhythm section awesome! loved it!
I do remember their name cause i text Julie right after. their called "twin shadows" Now i only caught the last 2 songs. So, I can't fully recommend them, But, what I saw was GREAT! so check em out, their from here, NYC.
ALWAYS, ALWAYS show up for the opening band (unless you know) "you never know what the tide will bring" (Tom Hanks Cast Away)
The band I came to see was really good as well. I think I was just ready for some rock after those guys. They (twin shadows) kinda set my tone for the evening.  I will say this.. about the band I came to see. The lead singer was very genuine and cares about peoples well being and THAT is HUGE to translate that to the public. He's sings about situations he's been in with his girlfriend etc. 
Sensitive,  passionate and very friendly. (which is nice to know, especially since he was the first person i saw after the first band, and was going on and on to him about that band that had just finished, about "how awesome that was"!) I didn't know he was the lead singer of the band i came to see till he popped up on stage and started setting up. That was pretty uncomfortable.

Next day:
Hooked up with mine and Julie's good friend Heather who was celebrating a very special birthday with her man Rolyn (the artist/creator of weesee). We did Momofuko which is a staple, for us every time we come up here, (chicken buns) and sake. But we had "Lone Star" beer. (it was her birthday) Then we went to "Chickalious" sp? just deserts that's all they do.
And, their the BEST! 
I bid them a farewell and off i went....
I met up with Phil Karnats and his sweet wife Lindsey, we had a great visit. He's here, for a show, their playing tonight. (Secret Machines) I will be going to that tonight with Jay Jennings (one of our trumpet players. The one without the fro) and his girl. He just moved up here, so you may see him out and about if your in the NYC area. 

I left there and went home, and stayed in the apt for about 35 hours without leaving, writing and messing with garageband. I have no internet where I'm staying.
So, I'm in a Starbucks typing away and I have to go>
Have a nice evening and some sweet dreams.

Howdy people,
been on a journey, like us all. (compliments of Julie, she made this happen for me.) I love her for that and much much more. 
In NYC as we speak, doing some writing, visiting friends and working on the future.
I found this interesting song, I would like to share. So give me alittle time to work this out.
Never done this before, so bare with me. I know this is so revealing of my blogging inadequacies. 
But damn it, you got start somewhere, or it'll never happen.
On my way to meet Adam our front of house sound engineer for some food and conversation.
maybe he can help me out. I mean he's professional sound engineer for crying out loud. I'll let ya know.
I'm on the west side (greenwich village) area. Hope to bump into some you freaks. I mean that in a good way!

Hey, what's up? Sorry for the delay in given you the skinny.
LA Wee See launch was perfect! Great to see some familiar folks as well as meeting some
new enthusiastic humans towards Wee See.

The Polyphonic Spree is doing what it does, continues to navigate their daily lives.
Writing has been going on consistently. Have been doing alot of jams lately with other folks in the community. The other night had a few peeps from the group Mt. Righteous.
 I had presented them their award at "The Quick Awards Show" at the Granada Theater (I was asked if I would present the final awards for the evening. Which I was honored to do so by the way) It was a interesting evening for me, because I had never done that before and I was a bit nervous. But, it all worked out and prompted me to ask them (Mt. Righteous) if they wanted to jam. So we did and it was a blast! Their a good group of kids and I enjoyed improvising with them, switching instruments and such. Wish them all the best.
I have been working on getting my Identity back from Myspace and Facebook. It seems there have been people impersonating as me,(Tim DeLaughter) without me knowing.
I know this sounds alittle naive to not know this till recently, but as you may or may not know. I have really never been very active or should say interactive on these forums regarding myself.
It's always been with TPS and even then my input was pretty void. 
So, after I decided to take back all TPS related sites, (creative content etc). It spawned us (Julie and I to check out "me". That's when we discovered the impostors. 
So, I apologize for those of you who thought you were talking to me, and maybe getting no response or info etc. This is being worked out as we speak.
The Tim DeLaughter myspace is sorted and you will see the link on The Polyphonic Spree friends area. Although, it's up. It's not quite realized please be patient. As far as The Facebook is concerned it's being handled and should be rectified soon. Will keep you posted. 
This is all happening with the gracious help of Josh and My friend Mark. (leaving last name out on purpose) who are quite savvy in this area.
Thank You guys!!
Have a great day people!
