But, maybe you're looking for ...

That Radio Guy from
That Show on That Station

For sixteen years now, the voice and vision behind Indy In-Tune Radio, as well as the Indy In-Tune Podcast, Local is Our Genre, and The M.O.R. Subcast, and a few others you don't know about because I have many noms de plume.

That Keyboard Player from
That One Band That Did That Song

Actually mostly just a hired gun, but always working on a couple of side projects. Not much to report on those yet, but you can scan through a few samplings of my history as well as the occasional snippet of the new stuff currently in production here.

I know what you're thinking: How can this guy still be single? Please visit my GoFundMe page, or buy a souvenir t-shirt at the gift shop on your way out ... proceeds go towards purchase of my Russian mail-order bride.

You know, stuff you need to know, because you don't keep in touch with me as often as you should ...

NaNo2022 Update
Scored my third NaNoWriMo win. I think I've proven I can effortlessly spit out 50,000 words of complete gibberish now. This one, while complete, doesn't seem strong enough to warrant a second draft at this point. Keep tabs on my progress here.

Yes, I'm Going Away
I'm slowly purging social media and consolidating all of my creative output here. As of New Years 2023, most sites have already been closed and of the remainder, I'm only regularly active on Threads and WordPress. Please adjust your expectations accordingly.

It's Now Official
All hail the glorious house of Pierpont-Archer. The paperwork has officially arrived, and I am now a proper Lord. I won't insist everyone use my title every time they address me, but I will be evoking prima noctra and do excpect a little bow or curtsey if you're making me pick up the tab.

But that's not all ...

Like an onion, there are always additional, kinda slimy and stinky layers underneath what you see ... for example, did you know I'm also ...

Software Engineer and Technical Analyst
Specializing in mostly-dead programming languages, extremely large documents detailing and interpreting multivariate data sets, and keeping cloud operations running soother than Lando Calrissian's buddy with the weird headphones.

Fledgling Writer and Novelist
Aside from the aforementioned technical stuff, a dozen or so books in various states of completion, and some corporate ghost blogging I do on the side, I mostly just blog about stuff I'm an expert in ... comic books, music, geek gadgets, and the woes of serial on-line dating for middle-aged people.

Commissioner of Tackle Baseball
Seriously, it's a game. It has rules. I invented them. Accept no immitations. It's not legitimate, sanctioned Tackle Baseball unless it has my signature. Someday it will probably take the sports world by storm.

Really, this is just a landing portal whose only purpose is electronically feeding my narcissism and updating people who know me to the fact that I really haven't accomplished much new lately. Not very exciting, is it? If you're looking for fresh content, you'll probably need to go to one of the sites I actually do occasionally interact with.
