Francesco Todeschini Piccolomini

Pope Pius III: His Facebook fan page says it all, but that may be because he served as pope for less time than William Henry Harrison served as POTUS. [more inside]

Giovanni Battista Cybo

Meet the inappropriately-named Pope Innocent VIII. Witch hunter. Innovator in the field of immolation. Simonist. Slave regifter. And don't forget about his army of bastard children placed the Vatican on the brink of financial ruin. [more inside]

Pietro Barbo

Paul II was a poster child (or grand-nephew) of papal nepotism. This fellow made it more difficult to downsize church government because of his tendancy to appoint new cardinals in private. Oh yeah, he also loved bling and some accounts cite his fatal heart attack happening whilst being sodomized by his boy lover. [more inside]

Alfonso de Borja

You probably knew him better as Pope Callixtus III. His legacy, aside from his advanced age, feebleness and incompetence, is marked by a widely-spread (and patently false) rumor that he successfully exorcised Halley's Comet in 1456. [more inside]

Hillbilly Disco

This is just an improv jam from a rehearsal with my old band. It's a little bit funky, a little jazzy. Overall it's just a really fun groove IMO. The recording quality is not the greatest but it's not too bad. It features me on drums, my buddy Dan on guitar and another guy named Jonathan on keys. Enjoy.

Sumomo Mo Momo

Improvised sludge-rock by three people who'd never played together before. Stereo-action guitar pyrotechnics by nylon.

Trees + Herbs Just Got Easier

cloeburner and I used to be in an improv noise rock band called cloeburner. When I listen to this song, I think of a majestic bald eagle, sinking slowly into a pool of lava and contemplating its own mortality. I hope you will, too.
