No, but I have listened to some of his music and compositions. My musical talent ends with playing chopsticks on the piano!

Are you the same Joe Tracy that used to be editor of NewTekniques Magazine?
Yes! Those were some of the best years of my life. I love NewTek, their products, their staff, and the fanbase. Although I now use Final Cut Pro for my video work, I will always remember the awesome NewTek Amiga Flyer days. :-) Tim Jenison, an awesome guy, is a major innovator in the digital video marketplace and Jim Plant (NewTek CEO) got me started in the magazine industry.

Nope, but I’m sure Dutton Estate has some great wines.

Are you the same Joe Tracy that wrote about Japanese Balloon Bombs?
Yes. A lot of Americans (and even many Japanese) don’t know the history of Japanese Balloon Bombs and how they were used during World War 2. It’s quite fascinating. Unfortunately there were American deaths (on American soil) as a result of them. I also did a quick little slide video about Japanese Balloon Bombs that you can watch by clicking here.
