I sang some original folksongs and several old covers Saturday afternoon at the Down By The Riverside festival. It was a lot of fun. Then I got recognized from that at Waterford Stop and Shop while doing my part time detailing job, and then just now I'm at Panera having a sprouted bagel and I got recognized here too!
It's so humbling when someone goes out of their way to tell you they remembered you and some of your songs and it's also such a blessing!
I can't wait 'til my Masters Degree program is over so my time schedule isn't too tight and I can do gigs like that more often again like I used to.
One of the songs I sang there.
So much fun!
12jan15 -- Just published "Wordless Song" here at Angelfire!
Wow, as per usual I'm typing in how I cannot beleive it's been so long since I've updated this page. But you know what? I've had this one since the early 2000's so just check it once or twice a year and stop complaining ok?
This is poetics, and that my friends, like mythology and all things metaphorical is on cycles that are NOT weekly, daily or monthly or anything, ok? Yeah, ok.
So how it is with me, let's see. Since the last time? Wow, too much to say all at once, I'll just mention these days. Starting another degree this Tuesday, the army's covering this one. Thank you army, thank you broken knee, thank you motrin and ibuprofin.
Working too many part time jobs to make ends meet, especially when my substitute teaching season ended 'til late August, right? Yupper. Beach Patrol nights, I'm like a young David Hasselhof without the abs. Weekends I sling chips, pretzels, steladora breadsticks and healthysnacks for a friend who runs his truck as an IBO (Indy Biz Op) this is actually one of my favorite odd jobs ever. Pays well and very chill. I'm good at it and EVERY time I say thankyou to a paycheck the boss says "no, thank YOU..." Good stuff.
Oh, and Spotify is paying a nickle at a time nowadays instead of a penny. Maybe it's going to be OK to be independent afterall.
So lastly, here's a short vid of me reading WCW's "Red Wheelbarrow."
10may13 - IMDB (Internet Movie Database) just gave me a credit as "Obnoxious Paparazzi. That's kind of rude, but I'll take it. Yupper, in that world, bad news is good news, right? Break a leg! [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3995033]

28may11 - OK who do I complain to about leaving too many pages unmaintained for too many long periods of time? Oh wait, myself. OK, I'd better get with the program and do updates more often. Too busy and scatterbrained all the time I guess. Oh well. PLEASE ENJOY THIS PAGE and all the others while you "EXCUSE THIS MESS WHILE WE REMODEL..."
