Why are my songs on beemp3?

July 18, 2011

I saw that some of my songs could be downloaded from beemp3 and thought it curious since I hadn’t put them there. I decided to check their site and this is what I found: Disclaimer 1. Beemp3.com DOES NOT HOST any of the songs displayed on this site. 2. Beemp3.com indexes these files which are […]

Pump up the jam

November 8, 2009

I was on the road (for my day job) and heard this cool version of the Technotronic hit – it’s like a cool gypsy journey 🙂 The band is called the Lost Fingers and they are sharp dressers!

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 […]

15 Seconds of Shame

July 23, 2009

Song #15 in Hardcory Mogkenstein’s 50 Song Challenge coincidentally has the number 15 in the title and it’s 15 seconds long – I present to you: 15 Seconds of Shame. I was thinking about the 15 minutes of fame that is more like 15 seconds these days and doesn’t it seem more common to get […]

Pontiac Beaumont

July 5, 2009

Here’s my latest tune. This is for my nephew Joey’s 16th birthday. He bought himself a 1969 Pontiac Beaumont and I wrote him this song – kind of like one of those t-shirts that say my parents went to Florida and all I got was this lousy t-shirt. We also got him some cool Betty […]

Jingle This is Cool!

June 22, 2009

As follow-up to my Jingle This post, I would like to stand up in my basement and say Jingle This is Cool! They caught my attention by referring to guys in the basement making music but since they don’t have basements in California I can’t slag them too much. One actually has to pity them […]

Rhyming Dictionary

April 8, 2009

A rhyming dictionary comes in pretty handy when writing songs and lyrics. I didn’t used to think so. I used to think a rhyming dictionary was cheating. Anyone good with words should have the vocabulary to support them. I would always use a dictionary and a synonym dictionary but never liked the rhyming dictionary. I […]

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 […]

Jingle This

March 23, 2009

Y’know how gmail looks at the content of your mail and advertises to you? Sometimes I find that interesting, sometimes I ignore it. This one I could not ignore: Jingle This They say: not some guy in his basement How offensive is that? I feel a song coming on…

Shingles Jingle

March 22, 2009

A couple interesting things have happened to me over the last couple of weeks. First, I seem to be one of those lucky people who gets that adult relapse of Chicken Pox known as Shingles. Second, Polly has said that my vocals are too blah, for lack of a better term. I know I’m not […]
