Par Avian 76 re-release

By February 2, 2019Par Avian
We recently lost one of our own.  Dave (Ajax “manmuffin” Telkhines) Lee passed away in January.  I didn’t know him as well as I would have wished but he was hard not to like.  He had the type of presence that filled up a room warmly.  And he was friends with more than a couple of you.  Sometimes you meet friends of friends and you wonder if there’ll be a spark.  You never had to wonder with Ajax.  The man is gone but his spark continues on.
Deep into the second half of the PA run he contacted me about making a mix.  He said how much he liked the collective and how much he liked all your music.
You see, he liked the music and he liked you.  I’ve added his mix to the PA archives.  You can download a zipped file there which also contains a txt file you can import to give you proper track ordering.
You don’t have to like the songs.  But you should like the music.  Because the music takes you to the man.  Thank you, Ajax.  Turning it up to 11 for you tonight.
Par Avian was just a mix tape; you were the sound.

E. Tage Larsen

E. Tage Larsen is an artist, designer and dog robber. You may encounter him as an art gallery director, branding designer or illustrator. His work has received awards from "Society of Illustrators", "American Illustration", 'Print' magazine annual as well as the LogoLounge and LogoLounge 'Master Series' annuals. Essays on design and fine art have appeared in numerous magazines and web sites.

Among his less savory qualities, he's a poor sport, a sore loser and ill fitted for honest labor. He makes bad friends and worse decisions. Animals avoid him and children despise him. He's been known to drink to excess, carry on with seditious talk and leer at women. He's a coward, a card cheat and a known liar.

Mrs. Call's second grade class said perhaps all that needed to be said about Larsen.In a moment of vindication and possibly clarity, Call would add to Larsen's permanent record that he was a bit of a dreamer and that Larsen was "an excellent student but his grades trailed off in the final semester."True, Larsen was filled with promise and saddled as starry-eyed but one can't help but notice that Call's inability to chisel this raffish diamond-in-rough wasn't also a clerical trick to distance herself from the responsibility of the 'Nurture' debate.She also said he was "prompt".She wasn't wrong.
