What do you do when someone brings up your past... in video form... while you're on stage singing your heart out? In the last of our seven episode series, Philena shares her intensely personal story of self-exploration, public harassment and being stalked by the self-styled morality police of 4chan. Alex asserts there some things that are just objectively wrong... Philena says no judgements. What do you think? Watch, consider and tell us in the comments.

This is a project in motion. In Dec I did a three week experiment with writing and recording a new song every day using Loopy to put them together and record them live. I will post the videos from that project once a week on Thursday for your audio/visual engagement.
Stay tuned for the rerecorded versions of these tunes here and on my Choon page. Again for your stimulation. You must be special.
The first song is called Push and I think it was a great success.
L'Astronaut plays live on 12/6/2013 at the ...What's This?! Studio in Kutztown, PA.
