Some folks look for evidence of the existence of Bigfoot. I am searching for something a little more elusive. I am searching for the person who is looking forward to the Avatar sequels. Seriously, who asked for them?

There is no music worse than Contemporary Christian music. It is worse when it's playing somewhere public and you cant turn it off.

I like Mastodon because I don't really know people here and sometimes you need a break from people you know.

Youtube video of me singing a Todd Snider cover song. Republicans with a bad sense of humor should stay away. 

Youtube video of me singing a cover of a blues song that is misogynistic and abusive. 

Me playing a song on a one string cigar box guitar.

Here is a video of me singing my version of (Sitting On) The Dock of the Bay. My son's rooster, Bob, is singing backup vocals. The phone falls at one point. It's okay. I had fun recording it.

I always wanted to drive in a Demolition Derby until early last month when I was in a head-on collision. Now I can't imagine doing that shit on purpose.

Nobody showed up to my ukulele class last night. I am not super upset because I was on the clock even if nobody showed. I see posts on social media about how there is nothing to do in my town, but when the public library offers very accessible, very free events, nobody shows up.

I'm teaching a ukulele class tonight at the library I work at. I'm looking forward to it.

Metallica's "Black Album" contains three subtle nods to Libertarianism.

1. The cover depicts the snake from the Gadsden Flag.

2. There is a track called "Don't Tread on Me".

3. The whole album is fucking garbage

Here is my version of Columbus Stockade Blues from my Rough EP. It's recorded on my cell phone using homemade instruments. I'm playing a 2 string cigar box guitar with a broken tambourine on my foot. I hope you enjoy it.

I'm still looking for the best way to release this to everyone. If there are no better suggestions I will probably just put it on my webspace to stream or download.

I recorded an EP using only my cell phone. It's 3 covers of folk/blues songs done on homemade instruments (cigar box guitar, telephone microphone, suitcase drum.) I want to release it with a Creative Commons license, but I am still wondering the best way to get it out to anyone interested in hearing it. Here is a sample track. Let me know if you want to hear more:

Opinions on school shootings and politics 

The daily mass shootings are happening because our government is failing us on so many levels. Some blame gun control and some blame mental health, but the core issue is an entire government that has done nothing. Not just Republicans. Not just Democrats. The government as a whole. Both parties are worthless and it's time for everyone to stop pretending that either party cares. If they did, they would find common ground and do something.

The news is full of hate, violence, anger and fear. Tell me something good.

Lots of folks migrating to Mastodon.

Lots of folks wanting those folks to know that they were here first.

I am not sure what keeps me here. I know absolutely no one and most of what I say goes entirely unnoticed. It's like real life, only I have to type more.
