one day Westphal and I were in Chicago and we saw a guy walking two Bichon Frises. one was running way ahead of the guy and one was lagging behind and so Westphal made up a little song about them. good thing i was there to correct his HORRIBLE MISTAKE or WOW he would have looked like a REAL DUMB DOG MISIDENTIFIER
I figured everyone could use some cheering up lately, and I happen to have a vast surplus of happiness and love to share, not least because of this handsome unit. Nugget has inspired countless other tracks of mine over the years, and now he's starring in his very own album, a free-if-you-want compilation on Bandcamp, with (optional) donations going directly to the Child's Play charity to help sick kids. Good boy, Nugget!!! Created with FamiTracker (this song will play exactly as you hear it on an unmodified Nintendo Entertainment System console, if you happen to have a homebrew flash cartridge) [more inside]
A very short and simple ode to my dog who I love. [more inside]
My take on creating a song based on the hilarious "For Grigori, I sold goat" -- A Christmas Mystery letter.
Ancient 8-track demo from 2002 or 03. A dark (and occasionally slightly out-of-tune) little curio with some interesting chord progressions and harmonic twists. I vaguely remember being obsessed with this one at the time. I guess it could be categorised as spinwave chilloff.... [more inside]

I have a problem: I can't stop writing songs for my beloved puggle. Turbo Nugget is what we call it when he can't take the excitement and sprints a few dozen laps around the house, followed by a nap. I felt this was best expressed in chiptune form. [more inside]
An old song based on this scene from Mary Poppins that I told melissa may I'd post a long time ago. [more inside]
A song to convince a dog [more inside]
So, anyway, this song is based on a quote in this article. Twas made in the past hour and a half, upon the inspiration of cortex's breaking-news-story related songs. And it's short as hell. Which is somewhat oxymoronical, depending on your viewpoint of such things.
