I’ve got a thing about my son calling me old

Comments: 1

I’m not getting any younger. None of us are, I guess. I’ve never really minded getting older, since I’ve always been very firm in my belief that with age comes wisdom. Although, if that’s true, I guess I’m not old at all. Hur hur. Anyway. I think we all have moments when we become really […]

I just thought I’d post a fun little Tom Waits cover here on my little web site. I recorded this a few years ago when I was experimenting with an effects processor I was using (sold it since). I’ve always loved singing this song, and do it live regularly. Maybe you’ll catch me doing it […]

This is a story about death. And life. And ghosts who enjoy sad songs. You know, the usual. Look, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Sad songs make me happy. Do you agree? There’s some sort of cleansing in a properly sad song. My favorites are songs that might sound fairly uplifting, […]

“Hey, honey, I have a new song. Do you want to hear it?” “Sure. Is it a love song for me?” “Uh… Nope.” This happens all the time. Well, it used to happen all the time. My wife has stopped asking me that question now, because she knows it’s not going to happen. Why, you […]
