Rough: For My Antiparticle

This one is still very much in progress. The song is currently entitled "For My Antiparticle", and it's based on the idea of quantum foam. The general gist of quantum foam is that in the emptiest regions of space, there are particle/antiparticle pairs constantly popping into existence out of nowhere and then almost instantly annihilating one another. One imagines that if a fundamental particle was capable of thought, its last thought would be something like "what in the hell was the point of all this?", and that's exactly what this song is about.

The recording is rough, but it captures most of what I want to get out of this one. I'll probably just do a bit of tweaking and maybe redo the vocals and drums at some point, but I think it's bearable as is.

Parallel Universes

Now that the podcast is back to full functionality, it's about time to start repopulating it more regularly. Here's an old favorite from The Scientist.

I've seriously been struggling with getting my podcast to show up on iTunes for months off and on, and had basically given up. Turns out Blogspot's "Link" and "Enclosure link" functions are two completely different things. God dammit.

Anyway, this song goes out to whoever designed the Blogspot interface.

For Teresa, on our 17th anniversary - The Problem With Love Songs

My lovely wife and I are unfortunately stuck 1500 miles apart for a few months, so we don't get to spend Valentine's day together, which is also the anniversary of the day we started dating. In 1993! Hard to believe, and yet so, so, so awesome.

Anyway, this song is her present. I guess it can be yours too, although I don't really feel that way about you. Sorry, but it had to be said.

Hoopity POW!

This is easily the goofiest piece of music I've ever written, and in my case that's really saying something. This was originally written for a Shmorky cartoon a couple of years ago, but by this point I think it's safe to assume that it's not coming out. Alas.
