A companion piece to my MSN column, "The Observatory." 

 

This podcast features an excerpt of the interview I conducted with Greg Rucka, and wrote up for the column; the focus of this excerpt is on the genesis of the Whiteout comic series, where the ideas came from, and more.

 

(The complete interview can be found here; the whole conversation was almost an hour long, and most of it ended up in the text version; plus there's a brief interview with Whiteout artist Steve Lieber.)

"WALKIN' BLUES"

Some years back, when I was still working at Microsoft, a friend of mine—doing some prototyping work for a game that ultimately never made it off the launch pad—asked me to record a brief snippet of music as ambient noise for something or other in that aborted game. 

 

I recently found the original recording—less than a minute long, all told—of me playing a rough pastiche of "Walkin' Blues," on someone else's guitar, and thought it might be fun to toss it out here, just for grins.
