Did you survive the eclipse?

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Dec 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

Dear campers,

Unfortunately we found ourselves under the cover of orange illuminated clouds the night of the lunar eclipse here at the A.S.C.  The last time a lunar eclipse fell on the Solstice was the year 1638.  Yes, we are living in exciting times.  Glad to be here, now, with you!

Lovingly aware,

Yours truly

Good Energy Holiday

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Mar 29, 2009 in Uncategorized

News from Camp,

Nothing but a flood of love here after Mr Derek, Miss. Sandra and Senior Voodoo’s  holiday at the Abandoned Scout Camp.  Much was shared, discussed, learned, taught, barked, tossed and enjoyed during their visit.  Here Miss Sandra teaches us about prairie drop seeds while Jimmie teaches about down spouting:

drop seeds & down spouts

It was sad to see our good friends head down the road.   We look forward to our next time together.

In other news:  work continues on Nic Garcia/Dorthy Fix 7″ collaboration.  Watch for track updates soon.  The song “Let That Bridge Burn” by Nic Garcia is being recorded and mixed for our friend Caity’s new film:  “Hidden Hearts”. Also, Miss Amber is scheduled to have her very own show at the Isle Market & Deli in Minneapolis in June.  I think that she should have an opening for this show, but she needs convincing, so please help convince!

Hearts & Thoughts 2 U!

LuLu, Stella, Adrianne + Garcia come for visit!

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Mar 14, 2009 in Uncategorized

Dear Campers,

Hope you have been soaking up the vitamin D rays on this fine day.   Yesterday and today, A.S.C. had their first visitors in quite awhile.   Mr. Nic Garcia & Adrianne along with miss LuLu & Stella came up from the big city to do some recording.  Sadly, this is the first recording that has happened in “the hall”, but we promise that it won’t be the last.   Check out this track by Nic Garcia:

Seasons Swallowed Them Whole

Nic layed down basic guitar and vocal tracks.  The plan is for DF to add some parts, so the project can be released on a 7″.  We can’t wait!  It was sad to see their van head back to city.  Both the cats Carmel & Gilbert are still shedding tears.  Tears of sadness or tears of joy it’s hard to tell?  Spring is in the air campers!  The question is:  What project to do first?  Work on and work it out is what I say.

Love to you,

R. E. Cook


Snowy Dayz & Warm Hearts

Posted by Ralph E. Cook on Feb 26, 2009 in Uncategorized

Dear Campers,

Hope this finds you well. Today is turning out to be one  snowy, cold day here at camp. (The “White Hell” our friend Tato likes to say.)It looks like the kids have all broke out of school. I’m hoping that one of them will shovel us out and/or bring us some candy. The big news at A.S.C. is that Adrianne and Nic will be coming to town next month. The plan is to record some new Garcia songs, so Dorthy Fix can add parts. I guess you could call this a super group or even a super duper group if you like! We are all very excited for them to visit. If you haven’t done so yet, check out some of Amber’s new work on the Art page. Also, she will have these two pieces of work in a recycled art show at The Isle Market & Deli @ 2115 W 21st St in Minneapolis.recycledartshow1

recycledartshow2So, if you can, go check it out and if you have the $flow$ take them home with you.

All our best,

Dear Campers,

As you can see the frost is starting to thaw at the Abandoned Scout Camp.  The bi-polar bears are coming out of hibernation.  It won’t be long now…good things will be a plenty around here at camp.  Stay tuned!
