3D with tiers of LP wedges, and orange vinyl accenting the Warner Bros. “Burbank” record label on this clock for buddy and singing comrade Daniel Graves – a tribute to his favorite group Tower of Power, on the evening last month that we went to see them in Beverly Hills. The Tower needs some repairs – prayers for two members of the group in the hospital after being struck by a train. Not funky.

For music-lovin’ friend Jeff Snyder, last year. Once a news writer, and more recently a communications colleague, we’ve shared new and old music and been to some great shows here in L.A. This string of titles reads like a cryptic, prophetic prognostication. (Deep, deeply deep).
Eve of Destruction, the Animals, Jeff’s Truth, and killing the witch.

Catching up on some previously made clocks over last couple of years. This one for my longest-running friend, Mark (Michigan/Florida) and his wonderful wife Deb. We were music-jammin’ buddies back in high school, trying to impress the girls with guitar (Mark), string bass (me) and harmonizing on James Taylor songs and folkie stuff. Leo Kottke too.

My latest Colliding Vinyl Timepiece, for our fearless A Cappella director, Rachel Nachison, a wonderful young woman and talented musician, who likes the “old” music – Tchaikovsky and Simon & Garfunkel, both featured in the clock. Working those Columbia and Capital reds. Titled “Symphony and S&G.”

So I was “commissioned” to make a companion Colliding Vinyl clock to the Barry Manilow one (third photo) I made a year a half ago; it had ended up staring at people while they used the toilet in their Santa Barbara bathroom, and she wanted the same vibe for a bathroom in their other home (blended family). So this has Barry saying he “came in through the bathroom window.” Floating on a Grunt Records release, what else?
This breezy little timepiece of mine hangs in my office. Love to work those yellows and oranges with a some red vinyl accent. The Kama Sutra Records label from the 60s was a gem. Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Lovin’ Spoonful, and Bubble Puppy.
