A polymath (Greek, polymathes, "having learned much") is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. In less formal terms, a polymath (or polymathic person) may simply be someone who is very knowledgeable. Most ancient scientists were polymaths by today's standards. Wikipedia
Disappointment. Mar 12 2014
It's been 2 years since the disappointment of New Years Eve, 2012. I've only played a single show since that day. It's almost unbelievable time has gone by so quickly. That night, we were scheduled to headline the show. As 12:00 approached, we were told the lineup was running behind, and our set would be cut short. It wasn't until 11:50pm we were told that we wouldn't be playing. I was clearly upset. We fought with the promoter, and were told we could play 2 songs, only. Time dragged on, and by 12:10, we were told power would be cut, and the show would be over. We cleared our things from the stage, after a lot of yelling, and heated words were exchanged. I hurt my friend in my disappointment; and though he was partially to blame, it didn't make things better.
I need a new start. Things with my friend are fine. We talk occasionally, but the unfolding of that evening turned me off playing for a long, long time. It left a bad taste for the way people of China run events and do business, with disregard to plans and promises made. But, that shouldn't stop me from continuing to play and perform.
I'm making a late new years resolution; To play at least one show as big as the Kunming "500km Festival", which I performed at during my first 3 months, in China.
New Years Eve Dec 31 2011
Well, it's been another year. Things are turning out better than expected in so many ways! We've been fortunate to play some really great events. The incredible part is that after playing only a small number of shows, relatively, we've played huge festivals such as Kunming's, 500km Music Festival, and tonight's New Years Eve line-up! The Polymath lineup tonight includes the infamous, Egg Head, a Chinese local who plays the scene here as hard as I do; as well as Isaac Rosher and Wesley Rodgers on Keys and Drums. If you're in Kunming, we're excited to hangout with you all for New Years Eve to end off 2011!
Currently in China. Aug 26 2010
I made it to China. I guess now it's time to figure out what I'm doing here! I don't exactly have it all planned out. Right now, I'm on a plane, flying to Kunming. I've spent the past three nights in Shanghai. I really enjoy being in Shanghai. It took me the first two days to find my way around in the part of the city I was staying in, but the transit system in Shanghai is incredible. I managed to visit a few of my favourite spots again and began to settle on the fact that I'm going to be here for a while.
