An humbling experience

July 4th, 2009

billiejean Michael Jackson died last week. It’s barely at the edge of my memory, but I remember listening to Thriller on tape until my walkman broke, listening to Dangerous on my stereo. I didn’t even realize how much I had listened to Bad until I bought it again this week and started playing it – […]

Bellevue Crunk

June 24th, 2009

Bellevue (NE) Crunk When you go to Omaha, NE to meet a bunch of people you’ve only know through the Internet, things are bound to go south quickly, at least if pitchers of Busch Light are involved. Last Friday, we all went bar hopping in Bellevue, where the dive bars are just that, and ironic […]

11 Guitars

June 17th, 2009

11 Guitars I was having trouble thinking of something to do. My other music projects were coming along slowly. I felt like playing guitar, so I decided it would be a good challenge to make something using only guitar and effects. I use a bunch of different delays. The ocean sound is a grain delay […]

Chip 32 First Draft

June 11th, 2009

chip32 I found this awesome vsti Chip 32 and decided to try it out. I made this track using Chip 32, Toad, and Peach. I am not happy with it in its current state, I probably will change some things about this song in the future.

Uhh Let’s Not Be Civil

June 4th, 2009

download I wanted to do a more rocking song than I’ve been doing lately, and I also wanted to have a song that started off with a slow acoustic(ish) intro before going into the rock. I’m not super enthused about this one and spent a bit of time trying to bring it to life with […]

The Rain Before The Waves

May 20th, 2009

download (6.7 MB) Long ago, I was walking on the beach with someone I loved very much, when she stopped and wrote “_____ loves you” in the sand. It made me happy and sad at the same time. I was thinking about that when I wrote this a month or so ago. I didn’t do […]

f-ing-danger This is my Fucking Danger post. It is not complete, as you will notice. This is because I wanted some rap verses on it, so I figured I’d put it out there as is (basically a beat and a hook) and see if anyone is interested. If so, holler at me. As with my […]

download (6.7 MB) I was going to do a rap song, but I haven’t been feeling the whole braggart vibe as of late, so I did something which is almost entirely the opposite of that. I started writing the song on the ukulele, writing the melody first. I find this works a lot better than […]
