Foam rots, that’s just the way it rolls kid. So if you are playing music live for the long haul, at some point your expensive (aren’t they all?) case is going to seem more and more useless as you dust bits of dry rotten foam off your synth at every gig. Those bits get into your synth and before you know.. dead synth and useless case! I’ve had two cases in use for nearly 20 years and yeah.. that foam wasn’t even foam anymore so much as compressed sludge. I’ve dodged refoaming it for a loooong time but with some upcoming gigs involving flight time it was time to step up to the task or buy a new case. Well, apparently refoaming your synth case is a pain in the ass AND expensive. At least, that’s the main feeling I was having after calling Calzone/Anvil to refoam my case. The cost after calling them? $150.00 (US) just to have them mail me the replacement foam. $250.00 to have them take your case and do it for you. That ain’t cheap. Well, I’m all for dropping loot on new gear but foam? Fuck that. Let’s do it ourselves. I started looking around for a foam supplier and I found a great company called Canal Rubber (www.canalrubber.com) who has been “Serving your rubber needs at the same location since 1954″. Truth. So after measuring the interior sizes of my case I called them and got a quote for “high density 1″ grey foam”. The cost? $40.00… INCLUDING the cost of them cutting the individual pieces I needed. SOLD. So here’s what ya’ need to do to refoam that case of yours:
1) Rip out all of the old foam:

This Sunday I invite you to join me for my first ever solo live performance for FREE. I have no idea what will happen. I have no idea how this will sound. I will begin prepping Sunday morning and what you will see and hear will be an entirely improvisational performance that will start and end with you in your home. No editing, no multi-tracking… you will get the full nitty gritty: fuck ups and all. I follow a list of highly varied and skilled performers and recommend tuning in early to hear and see all of their performances! Please RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/140097439463119
There is a backpack. There will be things that make noise in this backpack. There is a plane. It will be taking this backpack to Seattle. There are MORE noise making things and people in Seattle. We will all be in a room with these things. These things will light up when electricity is surged through them and they will make SOUND. SOUND YOU CAN HEAR. WITH YOU EARS. THAT ARE NEXT TO YOUR FACE. YOUR FACE HAS THESE EYE THINGS THAT CAN SEE:
What happens when a man’s eyeballs fall in love and leave their owner? When Norman Spooter’s eyeballs steal his car and take off for parts unknown, he does what any of us would probably do in that situation… he goes back to bed, hoping it’ll all resolve itself. Unfortunately, in the middle of the night, a pack of WOLVES moves in. The worst thing is, they’re party wolves… so he decides he’s going to get his eyeballs back. He joins forces with a mysterious woman named Zoe, She needs him too… She’s on the run from her psycho ex-boyfriend, who happens to be a dangerous walrus. The road trip/chase novel is flipped on its head with a few stops in such places as the bizarre “Motel Sick” and a cult town in North Dakota. With violence and insanity nipping at his heels and a race against the clock to get his body parts back, this could turn out very badly for Norman Spooter.
Michael Allen Rose explores this bizarre premise in Party Wolves in my Skull (108 pp., tpb, $9.95), a bizarro road-trip novel brimming with imagination. Rose’s plays have been seen in Chicago, as well as New York, Portland, Denver and other major cities. He’s also been published as part of the anthology “Kizuna: Fiction for Japan,” an international effort to bring relief to Japan in the wake of the 2011 tsunami. This project however, marks Rose’s first turn as a published novelist.
Patrick Wensink, author of Black Hole Blues and Sex Dungeon for Sale! has this to say: “Supposedly, Hemmingway pulled the trigger after failing to finish the Great American Lupine Shindig Novel. Thankfully, Michael Rose picks up where Papa left off and saves a bullet in the process. Filled with runaway eyeballs, debauched wolves and a pill-popping man trying to keep it all straight, Party Wolves in my Skull is one furry keg stand of a book.”
Garrett Cook, author of Jimmy Plush: Teddy Bear Detective and Archelon Ranch says the book is “Unusual. Special. A union of Rocko’s Modern Life and The Coen Brothers oozing with creativity and heart.”
Zack Parsons, Something Awful columnist and author of Your Next Door Neighbor is a Dragon says, “Party Wolves in My Skull reflects Michael Rose’s unwavering commitment to the absurd.”

So there’s this new synth and it’s upsetting me because it seems too fucking awesome to be true. I’m hoping this reall really sucks when it comes out because right now it’s just a guaranteed money loss for me. Anyway… fuck you NAMM. Fuck you Arturia. You fucking money thieves. I hate you all. I love you all. Fuck you.
