Another round-up of the last few days.

Whale Helmet

  • Recorded episode 9 “Heliopause” but haven’t edited it yet.
  • This will be last recorded episode for this season. (Things Fall chat from March will be episode 10)
  • Greg and I started talking about what’s next for this podcast. Format may change, just brainstorming right now.


  • Chameleon remix project is complete. All mastered with two bonus tracks.
  • New version of cover is done which brings the artwork back to its original aspect ratio.
  • I want to listen to it a few more times before committing but I think it’s all set.
  • I don’t want to release it right now, though. It would be inappropriate due to world events. This can wait.

  • I may do something with the new recording – some kind of instrumental re-arrangement.
