Mead is for unemployed theatre majors and bad poets and is only appropriate whenconsumed at a jousting match.

    This was a tough one to make both in terms of subject matter and stylistics- didn't feel right masking the vocals in a bunch of layers and effects because it made it sound too fortified. But it's tough for me to just let the voice stand out above the mix, esp. when the lyrics are so brutal.

It’s Cool Ranch man. It’s that good.

The tough ones are always the best ones. I have a close friend that is an amazing singer/songwriter. All of his albums are beautifully arranged and perfectly produced. But it’s always the one song that he’s vulnerable on that is clearly the best on each album. Now if he could just make a full length album with that much vulnerability, he’d be on to something.

I like your voice on this. You should work to have it more out front like this, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have rich and layered backing vocals.

The lyrics are superb. I relate heavily to them. I think I’m probably better than most at the relating with strangers thing, but it is still alarmingly lonely when the majority of your interactions are “how about the weather..”

I too feel like I’m losing myself. Like I’m disappearing. There’s a ton of inertia behind some of the choices I’ve made. No turning back now. It’s scary stuff. But, we’ve got this and we aren’t going anywhere. Keep making music like this and you’ll never disappear, my friend.

I couldn’t like this song any more than I do. It’s the tops. Full on Dorito.

Lyrics ^ and they’re wonderful. I relate so much to them.

Wow. Just, wow. This is such a big song. This deserves to be heard. I have no badges. If I had badges this would get them.

Such honesty. Such a pretty vocal delivery too. I can really hear you in this. Your songs are always gorgeous but sometimes the vocals are so layered the individual lead vocal is not distinguishable. I hear you so well. I love that.

This is amazing work. You need to release an album. You’ve got the songs and they’re stunning. You were meant to make music. You are gifted. This is among my Doritos if yours.


Had to keep the original, but hopefully you realize I meant “this is one of my favorites of yours.”

Also, the lyrics man. Wow. Just wow. I’d love to see them printed there are spots I cant suss out.

I love this song.

We are all just “trying.” Thanks for this one. I connect hard core to it.

lil I think you’d dig this one.

This is amazing.

Can you leverage your current skills to work with animals? Apply to work at North Shore Animal League in their finance department but request that two days a week you get to work with the animals? -Just spit balling here.

Thanks for the thought flag. Nice to hear from ya!

The other day I was in a Crate and Barrel and was really enjoying the playlist. Then it dawned on me.... I must be old. Then I went and bought a skateboard. Landed my first Ollie in 20 plus years. So, therein lies the power of a store playlist when convergent with a mid life crisis.

    Geez, right?
is where I stopped reading.

I think it’s fun to gather with friends and drink beer, particularly in the fall in Michigan and if possible, outside. To this end, football is a great enabler. Beyond that I care less and less with each passing year about all professional sports. I have a hard time spending so much time on something I have zero input in to.

I have a similar ambition. #childrenspoemsbytng

I’m an awful illustrator though. You’ll see my illustrations in a few of those poems.
