Hello, friends and fans. It’s been a while since I’ve had much to say–been playing and learning, but not a lot of projects in the mix. There’s a whiff of an album- I’ll know more after Sunday. Until then, enjoy this. I wrote this song when I was on the road living in my Nova. As you can see, it’s quite uncomplicated. I hired Coley the parakeet as a test audience. He would love to know what you think, if you don’t mind that he added his own sound effects.
I recently had the privilege of performing in the Vagina Epilogues, a show with a format similar to the Monologues that was put together to benefit our local women’s shelter. The idea of having “epilogues” is the focus on what happens after, to kind of showcase where the world is at now that Eve Ensler has made such an impact. The pieces dealt with both dark and light topics, and I was honored to perform two songs: the Mooncup commercial’s “Love Your Vagina” and the Bloodhound Gang’s “The Vagina Song” (with kinder lyrics.) It’s been a long time since I’ve had the chance to hang out with such a smart, funny, kind group of women.
my younger sister is seven months pregnant. i played some music for her son and got him kicking right away.
I started recording guitar lines yesterday to procrastinate from packing, and recorded this to procrastinate from recording guitar lines. I figure that as long as I’m procrastinating productively, it technically doesn’t count.
been a long time, friends! that’s what poverty and lack of transportation and internet does to a gal. here’s a video blog. i cover sufjan stevens’ “romulus” and talk about local music. whee!
I spent an embarrassing amount of time making this song today.
