Song 132

video

To be honest I had no idea what i was about to do here.

I have spent the whole day in meetings as per usual, and teaching, and tweaking other songs and then realized how late it was when i started to re-caulk the bathtub and that i needed to write this song.

So i was messing around with these chords and wrote a sweeeet lead line. I think i require two of me, or one of me that is a far superior guitar player to be able to get through it without laughing or sweaking in excitement at the end of it.

song 129

I've been having a hard time staying awake today and wasn't sure if i could stay awake to write the song.. but it happened without me resorting the lyrics to "oh my gosh i'm so tired i'm going to fall asleep right now!"
...It was close.

song 123

I like this song number.

Another long day, I had an incident involving a desk and a stair case.. I'm sore.

So I'm tired and this song might be classified under "suck"

Song 121

Song 121

Thank you for coming to the Carleton today for SFYS that was super fun, thanks!

I'm mega exhausted as I've been way busy today! But this song is also inspired by the massive amounts of home reno that are happening in my house today.

There is paint everywhere still, and there probably will be until the baby arrives but it's fun. I'm enjoying all of the change, the cats are not so much.

Song 119

My house has been a mess of nostalgia for the last few days as people have been moving in and out.

As with anyone in their twenties I've had my share of long term relationships fail. And it would always be the smallest things that drove me crazy by the end of it.

One of my ex's used to keep everything. Seriously everything. He would buy something and then keep the box. So when getting the apartment ready for people to move in/ out I've found so much garbage from this. Even though we broke up a year ago and we are great friends and i adore him as a person its annoying that there is still garbage (literally) to deal with.

PJs.

Song 115

video

Today I found myself uninspired. I think because being back to work after the holidays, and the snow storm, and the move, and all the painting its been hard for me to pay any attention to anything else. So i told my friend I was uninspired, and that inspired me. Interesting how that works.

Song 114

okay nevermind,
I'll just owe you one song tomorrow.

If I had enough time to write that blog, i had enough time to write a song.


But not enough time to get out of my PJ's (which i've been in all day... whoops.)

Song a day... Winter move!

Hey Friends,

I just wanted to leave a note explaining why there are two songs missing!

I've recently had 4 roommates move out of my apartment, and 2 new ones move in. So the past oh 48 hours have been used disposing of over flow from the old roommates, painting, and doing apartment repairs. It's been epic.

I am really handy with a drill, and you would be impressed.

I'll get back to this tomorrow- Luckily I've had this chaos to entertain me since yesterday morning because Halifax has been under attack by this crazy winter storm, so much snow, rain, and wind.

I shall also note, that with the 2 new people, they are expecting a new addition, and we've acquired a few more cats.
