It’s my birthday today, and decades of having to piggy back on Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and Mardi Gras cultivated a rather peculiar attitude in me, leading to this song. Actually, the song is quite old; but, today I had a creative flash and decided to make a video, which features the Old Baby version of my visage.
I’ve been working on this song rather than processing my open mic videos (two shows in the backlog, one of which features a misguided attempt to play my piano arrangement of Redneck Vacation. Sometimes things don’t work out, but I do plan on sharing it soon.). At any rate, here is “Making a Living,” my first song of 2019. It is written for my daughter, who is 20 and feeling angsty about being an adult.
The third installment of liner notes for my 2018 album, Syntherference. Featuring In-Fashion Passion (a critique of the oft-abused social media soapbox), and Learn How To Learn (possibly the meaning of life).
First time messing with my electric guitar in public. I kind like it, and so shall forego my acoustic guitar for the next few times, barring any surprise visits from the piano. Featuring my first performance of The Blue Professor, and other oldies: Redneck Vacation, Congratulations, and Chinese Buffet.
I won’t gush about how awesome Bowie is. This year, I have embraced the “Bowie Week” thing that seems to be picking up steam here in Philly and learned Kooks from the album Hunky Dory. Check it out; great fun!
