Why?

A song a day is cheaper than therapy. Please find my musings for 365 days in attempt to make one really good record.

My household is growing!

Halifax has been victim (with most of the atlantic provinces) to this crazy wind/ rain storm.. We lost power at about 430- and at that time my darling roommate Jacquelyn went into labor! She is off to the hospital and I'm off to NB for some shows, hopefully when I get back our little astronaut will be here and healthy.

Thanks for checking this out...

This follows with my pattern of wanting to fix people... Also, inspired by surgery.
kittens inspired by surgery? I dont know. I haven't had a coffee yet today, this needs to get fixed.

Song 156

video

I dont know why it bothers me so much when people move my stuff... It does. I'm used to my friends being aware of the things in my room and if i get something new and cool noticing it. And knowing i'm weird enough that I don't like things to be fondled. So this really gets my goat.

I understand post people don't have a section of beatles books and a section of kant, spinzola, Nietzsche (and in french never the less) but don't touch it!

I'm not really that mad. And I apologize if you see this song and think "mary is a jerk" mary is tired. Put my stuff down.

Song 155

video

This song is about knitting...

I tend to not read as much as I used to these days because in my free time I'm always writing or doing more work.. So knitting is what i do when i don't want to do anything else i guess.

Its easy to hide behind I suppose.

You know what I'm talking about.

Song 151

video

Hey Friends

Welcome to song a day children's edition.
My roommates Jacquelyn and Keith are expecting their first born this weekend... I'm not sure how to act around a baby, as every time I'm faced with the opportunity I tend to talk to them like they are cats.

While helping Jakkie set up the nursery I became fascinated with her children's books. So, for the next few days I'll be taking those books and putting them to music.

Until I get inspired to finally write the kids book about all of my cats that is.

So here is day 151... "Look at me" Grosset & Dunlap circa 1982.

Song 145

Hey!

This one take thing sort of backfired today because i was like heyyy this would sound nice if there was a trumpet outro. And then I was like I don't have a trumpet so i'll lalala..but then i didn't quite know where i was going...

Oh well.

Song woahwoah treat!

Hey Guys.

Sorry I fell asleep this afternoon and then had a girl date with my pal Meghan - Fid Resto and Jann Arden. Yea, had a time.

But Last night I had the wonderful pleasure of playing at the St FX Art Gallery with some great musicians. (Pat LePoidevin, The Danks, By Divine Right)

Andy Cunningham from Dimstar was there and included some of the live tracks in his podcase this week. Its #3 so check that out!
www.dimstar.ca

You probably want to also get those bands records. Pat's newest is to be released this month, and I enjoyed Mutant Message
with my coffee today.

With that said, its been a really busy two days and I am missing todays song- My roommate is expecting her baby this week so i'm trying
to not be that loud while she gets her rest.

But I'll have two for you tomorrow. In the mean time you have a lot of listening to do..


XO
