His standup is very funny. His appearances on Letterman and Conan over the years are amazing. I actually shed a tear today. On a selfish level, I’m sad for all the laughs we are all missing out on. I think he would have done standup for another 30 years, like Rickles. Gone too soon.

flac tried to play this for someone and it’s gone :(

Yes! I keep coming back to this song. It’s an important song, I think. My kids like this one. Kids are a good judge of music. They just know what they like. Period.

I like the lyrics in this song. I also love that it ends in what sounds like panic. And the Portuguese, “you are having a panic attack.”

As always, thank you for listening, my friend.

    (can't make out the end of this line)
FYI, it’s “refuse to wear your mask cause you say your a feminist.” —all examples of the Karen’s in the song are from real life Karens :)

ghostoffuffle this is begging for vocals from you.

Thanks! I really loathe the “hey na na” background vox but upon a further listen, I too think it has a 90’s vibe. Almost sounds like that Breeders song, Cannonball.

I run direct (cause kids sleeping) but use a big Muff pedal and then will use some plugins. This is just the Muff.

Thx! Hope it made you laugh. It was a spur of the moment, one take thing meant to be humorous. Thx for the inspiration

    Dude is a calibrated triangulator. He plays the game the most advantageous way his skills and liabilities will let him.
spot on. I was a very early supporter of Yang, pre presidential debates. Working hard to get him on that stage via donations etc.

Then he hit the stage. Flub. I love the guy, but he’s not the most charismatic politician. I don’t agree with all of his policies but I like that he’s changing the conversation from the same bullshit football items.

Yang will run, siphon some votes and build a coalition only to jump behind the dem at the last minute. Maybe on their ticket? Who knows…. Is it already Silly Season?

Hey there! I started recording a new song tonight and didn't feel like adding my own lyrics. I decided to put use the first comment I saw on Hubski as the lyrics. It was this ^ comment. Here is the tune. Mostly me just goofing. One take vocals, as I read the comment for the first time/sang. :)

Thanks pal!

It's been a rough couple of weeks. I contracted covid. I am pretty sure I got it from an exercise class I took. I was masked for the most part, with the exception of drinking water, but not everyone was. Lots of huffing and puffing. Not the best idea on my part.

My wife ended up getting it too and my youngest child. We have all been quarantined. it ends on Thursday. My kids have started a new school and are having to join remotely at first. It's not ideal. Our childcare provider can't help us so we were back to home schooling two kids, watching a third and trying to run our two companies while being very sick.

Breakthrough infections are more common than people think. The symptoms are also very real. I have never been so tired. My head ached, I coughed a lot and my brain was foggy. There were two days where I must have slept 16 hours. It was debilitating.

Luckily the kids are all doing well. My wife was also very sick. We are recovered though. Hopefully, my wife and I are now superhuman.

This is really pretty. The bass at the end is a little seizure inducing, but I love the rest of it. :)

Super pretty guitar work.

Fwiw, my good friend Brian is a voiceover actor and worked with Sean on a cartoon called Bunnicula. Said Sean is a prince among men.

Love it! I would have never written/played that part which is why collaboration is so much fun. It needs some bass. Any interest @coffee_sp00ns@ T-Dog BLOB_CASTLE?
