Bass Playing Robot Made out of Junk

March 31, 2012

This is pretty cool – a robot made out of scrap metal who can play Nomeansno – sure hope this doesn’t give the band any ideas 😉 Advertisements

Am I Scott Pilgrim?

January 8, 2011

My brother got me the Scott Pilgrim DVD for my birthday and said I had to watch it. He wouldn’t go into a lot of details but kept asking me if I watched it. As I watched it I finally realized why – it’s like an unauthorized biography. There are the obvious similarities like the […]

Bokonon: Robo’s Songs

August 28, 2009

Check out these two songs I found on one of the hundreds of audio cassettes I’m wondering what to do with. These are a couple songs that Robo wrote in what I think was the year 1991. We started to record them in my basement but had to move out to the garage to finish […]

The Bad Pixels are Blowing in the Wind

August 26, 2009

Let’s zoom forward about 20 years from Hyper-Active Youth to the Bad Pixels. This was a band we put together at Alias to play at the annual holiday party. For the Bad Pixels, I traded in the bass for some drums – it was pretty fun! We played a bunch of cover songs, one of […]

Is Antipop the best Primus album?

August 19, 2009

I woke up kind of early-ish this morning and realized it was a perfect time to listen to some Primus. My better half is not in the Primus fan club. Actually just looking at Les Claypool makes her cringe, much the way Geddy Lee’s singing does. There seems to be a bit of a trend […]

Two Pin Din and Songs About the Office

April 15, 2009

Two Pin Din is awesome! I particularly like this song called Plan B as it ties in with the Songs About the Office theme I’ve been working. Songs About the Office is like the punk rock sound track to Dilbert. Should I convert Songs About the Office into a compilation album? That’s an interesting idea […]

Hotel Room Blues

April 1, 2009

Last week I was in San Francisco for GDC (the Game Developer Conference). I would love to develop a game again but I was there for work. On the flight down, I was thinking about how I could progress on the 50 song challenge. Writing lyrics seemed like a good way to make progress, but […]

Get mad – write a song

March 14, 2009

Sometime last year my older daughter got mad at her younger sister and cousin; she was feeling excluded. As expected, there was yelling and hitting and other displays of hurt feelings. Punk Rock Dad to the scene! I intervened with, “Do you know what I like to do when I get mad?” This caught her […]

50 Songs per Year

March 10, 2009

I set myself a goal to write and record 50 songs this year. That would be pretty cool to do while holding down a day job and helping to raise a family. I want to go work on a song now but I have a cold and should get some sleep. I actually sung myself […]
