Can it be that they share a guitar?
Is one French and the other not?
Or is this the new way to get your music noticed?
Gory Bateson A local professor has stirred up controversy in academic circles because of an unusual research project. Nick Trujillo, a communications professor at Sacramento State, has adopted the persona of a burned-out rock star, and is circulating music, videos and other materials featuring this character. Why is he doing this, and what do some people not like about it?

Hello Professor Chaos and other alter egos out there. I'm Professor Nick Trujillo (really), but my internet alter ego is Gory Bateson, the lead singer of the mythic band The Ethnogs. Trujillo is doing a study of people with internet alter egos and would like to interview Professor Chaos and others. If you are interested, please contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

So back to the music, or is it?
Gory Bateson Sings Original "Telle est la Question"
Gory Bateson of The Ethnogs sings an original song about kissing in France that he wrote with his mon a mies Rob et Fannette during his trip there in summer '07.
Nick Trujillo Sings Original "Leah"
Nick Trujillo, co-author of the book "Cancer and Death: A Love Story in Two Voices," sings an original song titled "Leah," named after Leah Vande Berg, the other co-author. Leah died of ovarian cancer in December 2004. She was Nick's wife of nearly 20 years.
[Note: On the video, Nick meant to say he had never played guitar and sung before. He took lessons when he was 13 but gave it up after a few months.]
So Nick or Gory? Enjoyed your tunes.
