About Me

My name is Thad Kimo Watanabe, aka “shooky darshun.” I made up a middle-eastern moniker when I was in my twenties many moons ago. It was the first username for my “Excite” email account and the name stayed with me.

El Ten Eleven is a post rock duo that I began listening to in 2003 when they opened for the Life and Times at the Casbah in San Diego. This website is an archive for my live recordings as well as a project for my advanced web design class utilizing the twitter API coupled with WordPress. Thank you for looking at my site.
