My New Album Has a Name and A Cover

I’ve finished my part of making my new album. I’m going to call it Squirrelmageddon. It took me two years. If you ever decide you want to make an album all by yourself, first make sure that you’re reliably unemployed. The next step is mastering. That means I send it to Robert Smith in New York who will make it big, and boomy, and loud, and bright, and clear. And that means, I’m feeling ok about showing you the album cover art. If you were a fan of the cover art for Space Hell Sex Bunny, you’ll probably like this.

#TBT – “Welcome to the Spank Bank” Live at Flappers 2012


I don’t remember doing this show. I don’t remember changing the lyrics to this. I don’t remember removing the crappy interlude section. I don’t remember this song ever getting this good of a reaction. Yet, there it was, on a file that sat on my Windows Desktop for two years. It’s not the best video, but it’s proof that this is not the worst song I ever wrote. (The two I played before it got lousy responses, so they’re worse.)

Song Blog: “With Your Girlfriend”

“With Your Girlfriend” is a song I don’t play much, because I feel, in general, people hate it.

It is probably the most disliked song I’ve ever written. I’ve gotten a lot of dirty looks from audiences. Maybe they don’t get the grandiose, lecherous, sarcastic, over-complicated, duplicitous and poorly executed sci-fi storyline. It’s too bad, because I really like the “Ow/Uh” part.

I can’t really do much about the way people hate this song. What I can do, is try to explain the story in clear prose, so you can at least see what I was failing to get at. Here goes:

This song is set in a post-apocalyptic future. In this future, nuclear/chemical warfare has sterilized everyone except our protagonist and the listener’s girlfriend (how charmingly meta and interactive, right?). This gives the protagonist a survivalist’s reason to procreate “with your girlfriend,” who he thinks is a “fox” and a “9 out of 10.”  This inspires him to sing, philander beyond the original parameters (“with your mom”) and enjoy fruit brought to him by his illegitimate, mutant octuplets (See? It’s not that complicated). He also hints that the reason he and the girlfriend are still fertile is because they were already fornicating before the apocalypse and were secreted in a protective vault at the time of the sterilization event. Scandalous. Only when mass sterilization kicks in, does he bring the relationship to light, but still promises not to enjoy the sex (a blatant lie.)

Ta da!

Still not playing it live ever again.

Easter Egg: The little melody that bridges the chorus back to the verse, “No one else can do it anymore,” is a bit of a rip from the theme song for the post-apocalyptic anime series “Wolf’s Rain.” I love it, and no one will ever sue me, because I’m not playing this song anymore.

Song Blog: “Rock Discreetly”

It’s Rock O’Clock. Time for a song blog. Why this song, you ask? Because I think it’s the only song on my two albums that has never been performed live. I’ve played the acoustic intro, but the rest of it is beyond my live acoustic set up with all the drums, vocal layers and surf guitar. That’s kind of sad though, because it really captures a lot of my feelings, especially the “Fuck you, I’m going to make whatever sounds I want, even if they’re annoying” one.

I usually try to avoid curse words in recorded versions, because I hate making ‘clean edits,’ but since this yummy number had no potential as a single, I didn’t bother. This song isn’t all that funny, except for the fact that it’s loud and annoying for the sake of being loud and annoying, which I also think, really sums up my stage personality. That’s the opposite of my off-stage personality, which makes this song a real peek into the depths of my complexity. I’m so deep. I’m such a deep, intriguing person that he song right after this one is “Handjobs and Driving.”

This song was inspired by wanting to rock whilst other people, roommates, neighbors, cellmates and the like were trying to sleep and not owning a proper studio. Also, it’s a response to their complaints. All in all, a pretty self-explanatory song with silly voices.
