Why?

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

song 181

almost half way.

whoop, if i had a party hat i'd put it on.

or maybe on a cat.

cat tea party?
sure.

less cat tea party, this song is inspired by my house plants. I want to have a garden outside but i guess my back yard is actually built on concert so i have to make boxes first. I have a nice garden at my parents place, and my garden in france was crazy..

but i just got back to halifax today, and my roommates killed my house plants. between the hospital stay,toronto, and time at my parents house lets see if my green thumb can fix these.

I've had most of them since i've lived in halifax so about 5 years, which in the whole picture is a really short life, one of them came from my mothers house and it is older than me... so i hope i can bring them back to life... more on the plant death/pending zombie plants later.


here you go.

Song 179/180

Sorry this should've been posted earlier however i came down with a cold, (sneezing with torn abdomen muscles is probably the least fun event of the week.) as you'll notice in both of these my voice is still not back.

179) Since i've been at my parents house recovering I've done nothing but watch tv. Literally. I haven't left the house for more than an occasional dog walk in over a week. Its quite pathetic. But I'm still feeling pretty bad so i guess its acceptable. Point is, i think this song is inspired by this silly show that my mother is obsessed with "come dine with me" . my parents always have it on this show, or the food network.

180) Not about food.

I'm going back to halifax tomorrow if everything goes according, back to the kitties and my own bed and guitar!

Song 178

video

soooo i was stuck for inspiration today.
I think a combination of not leaving the house since saturday and my limited piano abilities were the culprit.

However after i did this my macbook crashed, and i thought i lost it. But it was in the trash.

I think it was trying to tell me something.

i apologize for the up-rise of piano songs, i'm not good at piano anymore but its much more comfortable to sit at the piano than have a guitar on me right now.

Song a nowhere.

Hey Guys,

I just thought I'd do an update where i've been MIA since last week... As i mentioned I would be going into the hospital for some super fun surgery. It all went find and dandy but i'm trying to take it easy for the next little while, but i'll be back with some fresh inspiration i'm sure.

I dearly appreciate your best wishes.

167/168

Hey Everyone,
Sorry for the lack of song a day this week.. Things are a little crazy with the new baby in the house, as well currently (as you will note the scene change) i am in Saint Andrews NB for a couple of shows... to make everything that much more awesome I'm going in for surgery on monday. So i'm hoping to get a bit of writing done while here this weekend so that i don't get too far behind.

XO
