My name ain't Norman, but I still Rockwell.

About Me

Bret is currently living in San Francisco, California and intends to keep positive despite all the evidence suggesting that he do otherwise. He used to work on a boat in order to pay bills, and has made a variety of other unclever life decisions. Perhaps you will be affected by one of them one day.

Sorry I haven't gotten you your May mix. Just got a new computer over the weekend and the old one couldn't have handled it. May is on its way!


Hi, hang tight. Your April '11 mix is done and I'm just working on the liner notes/packaging. Sorry it's late!


Brett, Cheers for the Outside Voice mix. Excellent rolling around music.


I hope we get assigned to each other some day. I think it would be quite the quest to find super-cool-awesome-songs to send, that we HAVEN'T already sent to each other over these many years. YES!
