A less-than-one-minute theme song I wrote five years ago for a fictional sitcom about a guy I worked with at the time. A music challenge twofer that I have had in the can for half a decade. [more inside]

Henry Pants

This is a song that I sing to my cat. Because he has a lot on his plate and a short attention span besides, this song is less than a minute long. It features autoharp, glockenspiel, and the "Min-O-Matic" rhythm box. [more inside]

The Girl at the End of the Road

I guess this might be interpreted as a stream-of-consciousness horror story. There's maybe three or four different autoharp tracks here, including a distorted autoharp that I really dig. And a backwards autoharp! These autoharps say "Happy Halloween!" [more inside]

Demented Children's Songs

A nightmarish take on children's music. I always imagine myself stuck in a carnival funhouse being chased around by evil clowns when I listen to this. From 1995 and one of the first songs I ever wrote. Some completely out of control layering towards the end! [more inside]

The Zombie Apocalypse Part 1

Part one of a two-part spoken word tale of terror, telling the horrifying story of some unexpected survivors of a plague battling the undead in the basement of the Guthrie Theater in downtown Minneapolis. Part two tomorrow.

Creature From the Deep

I bought an old box of Fruit Brute on eBay last week and it had one of those paper records attached to it. The song was so rad, I had to digitize it to share with MeFi. [more inside]

a quick and dirty version of the monster's reaction to promises. A lament for the most famous of the walking dead. Some Waxman implied.

I Trust You To Kill Me

My very first MeFiMuCh entry, this one is Halloween themed. It is dark and spookily minimalist electronic pop with ghostly vocals and lyrics about being at the end of the world (via zombie apocalypse) with a loved one and the logistics of love in the time of zombies. Interesting to note, this song was originally written on banjo as a folk song. But when trying to add some electronic elements to it experimenting with the recorded version I decided to make it a straight electronic song. [more inside]

Deixa Isso Pra La

A Little Scared

Hand clap, face slap, jaw harp and voice. For the August LYRIC Challenge (thanks for the inspiration, loquacious). NOTE: This is a pretty bare bones arrangement, so anyone wanting to add a track, please feel free to download and monkey with it. Could use some low end, for example... [more inside]

MuFi music challenge Wildcar, inspired by DaveJay's most recent post. Clocked random, found a comment, made a song. The comment is this one: It's saying that African tragedy gets measured by a different yardstick. Way over here in the land of Paris and Lindsey, it does.

Ugly Bugly Tuna Wiggle

It's about a bug who likes casseroles. No instrumentation because I don't play anything.

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.

Tasty Treats

It's kinda unfair because I work nights and have a headstart on most of you on these challenges. Not the most polished song (most of my stuff isn't) but I thought it was kinda fun.

Spies! Again!

For the Spy Music Challenge, an almost-straight rip from what everyone hears in their heads when they stand in front of a mirror in a tuxedo. A little repetitive, but I was going for production values, so imagine this as a background piece to intro credits. [more inside]

I kill you. You die.

It may be hard to believe, but I didn't listen to the song while singing it. Dirty words in a short song.

Say U.N.C.L.E.

It's a cover, but not exactly. I was too lazy to figure out the whole song, so I just took the basic hook and had some fun with it. First time working in Reason.
