They Don't Run Your Life

Another pep talk for the anxious and non-confrontational.

This one sat unfinished for a long time, but was recently completed.
Shot a video for it a while ago, starring my son George.

Nice job, man! Kudos! The video is really well done, his smiles at the end are priceless.

Interestingly, the "suggestions" appearing to the right at YT include Michael Jackson - Beat It and Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

Great video. This song is very therapeutic. "Title song from the album"? Did you just release an album?

I love the video. Get that kid an agent!

This is freakin fantastic. I've been wicked busy and missing most of mefimu lately, but I'm really, really glad I caught this. Awesome.

Did you just release an album?

Yes, when "release" = put on my website to download or order a physical CD, and "album" = remaster some old and some new songs into a cohesive package that I can finally point people to when they ask if I have any music available anywhere.

This album is not in stores, and is available digitally as mp3's, FLACs or other formats; or a limited-edition, fresh, home-burned CD complete with hand-stenciled sleeve homemade from a Canadian cereal box.
So rush right over and order yours today! These prices won't last forever!

Yea, you and George need an agent! Man, I'd love to see the outtakes for this. I can just imagine him crackin' up and giggling after every time he had to make "serious face"!

This is really great man!

This is just glorious pop music, plain and simple. Wonderful.
