Some of my favorite fan art!

Categories: Journal

My d00ds!

I want to share a few fun images with you today! Over the years I've received quite a few photos and drawings from fans, and I love every one (well ... almost every one haha). If you're familiar with my website, you've probably seen some of them hanging around already, but today I think I'd like to feature some of them in an official blog post for everyone to see too.

These are only a few, so if I didn't feature yours here - just send me a letter or something and maybe I'll feature it the next time around. Also note that I always love getting new ones! :) [...]

Yo dudes!

So my latest song "I Want You With Me" has been out about a month and a half and I have what will probably be the final update regarding what's been happening with it and soundcloud.

If you haven't seen my previous updates, I released it on (i believe) June 14th, 2014 to this website, soundcloud, and some others. For awhile we were getting quite a few plays and I was pretty happy. A lot of you listened and gave me feedback, a lot of you helped share the track with your friends, and we generally had a good time. [...]

In fact, what's even better is this: Because it's on the charts right now, its getting a huge increase in daily plays; Over a thousand extra a day than it was getting before! If I leave the computer and come back even a few minutes later, the play count jumps up a lot. [...]

Helloooooo peeps! Guess what? I'm releasing another single!

Woo woot woot woot

In about 2 weeks (June 14th, 2014 to be more precise) I'll be releasing my song "I Want You With Me" for your listening pleasure. It's got a bit more of a harder feeling to it, like my last track, but a bit more dreamier. I couldn't resist throwing on more of that sweet sweet robotic backup vocal stuff too.

The plan is this: In 2 weeks, the song will be published, and everyone can enjoy it for free. [...]

La La Land Talk on LA Talk Live - Good Times!

Categories: Journal | News

Aloha you dudes! I haven't said hellooooooo to you all in quite awhile, and for that I'm sorry. Let me make it up to you!

Earlier this month, I had the honor of being invited to talk and hang out with Brett Chapin and Dorothy Dillingham Blue on their show La La Land Talk (on La Talk Live).

Basically I got to come down, hang out for a bit before the show, and then enjoyed a full hour of talking on the air and playing a few songs for them. It was sweeeeeet, and so much fun! I'm pretty sure I made an audio recording of my own performances somewhere (I'll have to get back to you on that), but in the meantime, here's a copy of the entire episode, that they've posted to youtube: [...]

Sucking at Piano, I Don't Hate My Fans, You Don't Hate Me

YO peeps,

It's 6:15am and I should definitely be going to sleep instead of writing this. Yay me! I'm just in a ranty mood right now. Actually I'm in a ranty mood lately. I was hanging out with my mom after the gym last night, and at one point I realized I had been talking nonstop to her for like... an hour. I literally was talking and talking and talking about every fine minute detail of the most inconsequential things. Shit like... the statistical probability that someone would have a certain personality profile because they watched some stupid movie.

I think its because I've been working reallyyyy hard on some programs the last few months and I just crossed a major barrier where I can sort of relax, and not program, and so now I'm basically going insane...

Hey Fans ... I don't hate you


So yeah, I want to rant about something that happened a little while ago. Its not super bad but its kind of driving a nail through my brain right now. I received a friend request on facebook from a girl who seemed pretty nice. Wondering if she was a bot, or if maybe she had made a mistake by trying to befriend some random aging computer nerd on facebook, I asked if we knew each other from anywhere. [...]

I Just Dropped In - Big Lebowski Cover

Categories: Journal | News

Hello you dudes! I know its been awhile since I've sent out a newsletter. If you don't remember me, we probably met briefly while I was holding an acoustic guitar somewhere, or perhaps you sent me some sort of instant message online and I replied by trashing your inbox with free Mp3s.

Anyway.

I recorded a new cover song a little bit ago. Its not much but I thought it'd be fun to do. Its the song "Just Dropped In" by Kenny Rogers, from the movie "The Big Lebowski". It's from the scene where Lebowski gets knocked out and has a hallucination/dream where he dances and struts up to grab a pair of bowling shoes from Saddam Hussein, then becomes a human bowling ball that looks up girls skirts haha. You know the one I'm talking about. [...]

Hey you dudes!

It's official - I've made all my music free!!

As I wrote in my last blog, I've decided it's more important to me than anything else, that everyone has the chance to own a copy of my music - and not just one or a few freebie tracks - I mean all of it.

Too many times, I've had fans message me about only owning 1 or 2 songs because they couldn't afford more and didn't want to pirate my music. To me, that's a tragedy. That's enjoyment and good times lost because of money. Also I'm sure I've lost way too many potential fans when someone didn't listen at all because they couldn't afford to buy. [...]
