First ... yikes... it seems I may have dropped the ball delivering my latest youtube covers to you, so let's start things off with a couple of my new cover songs: Vance Joy's "Riptide", and "I Really Like You", by Carly Rae Jepsen:
Show in Hermosa Beach
Yay! And now for a big announcement! I'm playing a *live* show this Thursday at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach!
I'll be doing an acoustic set as the featured opener for artists Joseph Arthur and Lindsey Harper. Tickets are 18, venue is 21 and over, and I start my set at 8pm sharp. Try to get there early (doors open at 6pm) and be ready for a night of fun. [...]
So ... I'm feeling a little warm and fuzzy today. There's an artist I check out from time to time, named Kina Grannis, and a new friend just showed me a song that Kina had apparently recorded with her husband. It's a very sweet song, and it got me thinking about love.
This might sound weird or negative to some of you, but I feel like it's incredibly positive.
I often think about love; How hard it is to find; How easily it fades. A lot has to come together in just the right way, for it to happen. Take most couples. Imagine if things were different, even just a little bit. [...]
Well hello there you dudes! It's been too long since I've posted a rant-blog, so here you go.
The god damn white and gold dress is white and god damn gold, not god damn blue and black, you god damn blue/black mutants.
And now for my theory....
First off, if you haven't heard, the internet is going insane over a photograph of a dress, that about half the population seems to think is "white with gold stripes", while the other half think its "blue with black stripes". It's basically come down to a question of how we perceive colors, when factors such as digital color temperature / flash / lighting, monitor calibration, viewing environment ambience, as well as the physical color receptors in our eyes, come into play. Here's the dress: [...]
I've been having lots of fun doing various covers the last few months. I've done Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, and even a poor Maroon 5 (lol). I plan on regularly releasing content, but I may continue to be slow to post them on this blog, so I'd appreciate it if you'd head on over and subscribe to my youtube channel. That way I can be lazy about updating my blog, and you can still get the music... it's a win-win.
Last night I had a strange nightmare. I was working on a vast office building with cubicles as far as the eye could see. There was a woman I apparently knew at this job - someone I don't know in real life, but within the context of the dream knew very well. I guess the setting was that I had been secretly in love with this woman for a long time, but never had the nerve to talk to her, for years.
I saw her walking towards me, and my heart began to flutter, as it did every day for her in this dream setting. However, on this particular day in my dream world, she didn't walk past me, but instead walked right up to my face. Out of nowhere, she hugged me, and kissed me, and told me she loved me. [...]
