Jordan Daniel

Whether Jordan is writing acoustically under moniker Borderline Angelic, scratching out club beats with experimental project Electric Dreams Fantasy Boy, exploring 8-bit sounds and field recording with the electronic Pareidolia, or even playing homage to David Byrne and early ska in Captain Sizzle At The CBGB - the founder of Sudden Epidemic and the "voice" of Jane Lane plays music wherever he goes.

When not dancing the tango with lady Music herself, Jordan enjoys croquet, Regina Spektor, cooking, The Dark Knight, Magic: The Gathering, composition notebooks, horror movies, Terry Gilliam, concerts, quidditch, Blue Indigo, Mel Brooks, Richard Linklater, Photoshop, the internet, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, milk, Stanley Kubrick, new wave, Moog, the color pink, and the number 136.

...and we all went to heaven in a little row boat.

Well, my semi-stereotypical "emo" hiatus of this journal has seemingly ended, and in celebration of being a geek, I've created a new layout. Very simple, and it puts full attention on the entries (which was really, the whole point of this journal). So Glass Against Glass, vers. 13.0, is now up. I might decide one day to upload screens of every version up to this, to see how it has progressed. This newest layout is inspired by M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" with lyrics from Nickel Creek's "Out Of The Woods". See if you can catch my thoughts behind this theme.

So, I am now unemployed (well, as of a few days ago). I have stopped working at our local corporate whore's grocery store (heh rhymed), and have now given myself the good amount of laziness I deserve. School starts pretty soon, and I don't really care either way. Days have been days - good and bad. The good ones have been exceptionally good though. I've watched too many movies to count (including going to see "The Village" with Madeline), conducted a "tropical dinner" with Tyler (with the shortest appearance of Sudden Epidemic to date), and basically sat around pretending I have a life. Laconic hasn't been doing anything lately, because we're all unorganized. Hopefully, the demo will be done soon, and then - SHOWS SHOWS SHOWS! (I think it's cute to repeat things three times in a row). Lots of shows, merch, and planning for the completion of the album. Borderline Angelic will start work on the first full-band album, "Transformation", very soon (as soon as Jacob gets back from Europe, Elise gets an electric violin, and I get ahold of Weinland). That will be fun, and we'll be playing shows for that as well. Speaking of Borderline Angelic, I might be playing a show in a week or so with The Banded Geckos down in Santa Fe (just me, not the whole band). So, once I get details, I will post. I hope people will come to cheer me on.

I have been very happy lately. Happy but scared inside. Scared of a day not so far off, when my beautiful Madeline goes off to college. Very scared. I don't know what I'll do with myself. On the other hand, that makes all the times up to then even better, right?
