A quick little song inspired by Jessamyn's comment at the two-minute mark on Podcast #88. [more inside]
I asked Jessamyn what she wanted for her birthday, and she asked me to write a sincere song for her. I just finished the recorded version, but I did get to sing it to her, live and in the middle of the woods, on her actual birthday. NOW THAT'S SINCERE! [more inside]
Happy 41th Birthday, Jessamyn! Congratulations -- you have found your Audio Birthday Card which we all recorded in secrecy. Enjoy! [more inside]
So, what was it, November when the MeFi Challenge was unofficially "requests for covers from other MeFites"? But this goes even further back... sometime last summer, Jessamyn said she wanted to do a cover--with me!--of Guided By Voices' "Everywhere With Helicopter." "OK," I said, "but you have to sing and make jangly noises with things around your apartment." [more inside]
Fulfilling two of the Challenges for July: Wildcard (music you hate = techno) and Music (ripped off James Bond Theme riff). Also, going for the trifecta, it's a cappella (June's Style Challenge). And it's still July 31st in some parts of the world, so I think this should be allowed in the door.
Well boys and girls, I imagine this is what it would sound like if one was lucky enough to hang out on the front porch with our favorite banjo picking librarian. Yes, that's jessamyn on banjo! (collaboration)
