there's a secret buddhist temple hidden in the woods.
A few mornings ago I awoke from a dream that I recall quite vividly. If you know me, you probably know that I live smack dab in a valley between two great mountains in the Blue Ridge. In this dream, I was standing in the gravel “parking lot” talking to these Buddhists who had traveled a great length merely on the word that there was this ancient Buddhist temple hidden in the woods of these mountains. Buried in the leaves leading up from the holler are the steps and buried even more so in the mountain is this gigantic temple with statue / shrine. They knew not as to where the temple lay, but it left me intrigued far beyond what my dream had entailed.

What does Dare Dukes have to say on the matter of releasing a Christmas Single?
Yes, that’s right, me, valiant and cranky resister of the Hallmark Industrial Complex: I wrote a Christmas song. It’s bouncy, it’s cute, and yep, it’s a little dark. If you like banjos and doleful synthesizers you’re going to find yourself weeping into your egg nog.
