A song about brought-back-from-the-dead Blaseball pitcher Jaylen Hotdogfingers whose beanballs now convey a deadly and contagious ailment to anyone she hits. Lyrics by @phasmantistes, and apologies once again to Dolly Parton. [more inside]
Oh ye gods, Ed's song is ruined! But...what if I were to write parody lyrics and disguise them as his own songwriting? Oh ho ho ho, delightfully devilish, cortex! [more inside]
...could not explain his nudity. [more inside]
Sat down yesterday with my new uke, at a beach on the west cost of the Big Island, to revisit my Cohen/Elvis parody from several years ago.
A little mashup/pastiche (mastiche?) of two of my favorite musicians. [more inside]
Somehow the idea of doing an alternate podcast theme riffing on Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger got into my head a while a go, and here it is. [more inside]
Long considered a forgotten masterpiece, this meeting of master jazz artists took place almost 50 years ago in Munich, leaving the audience speechless. Features Skrillex on the Wobble Bass, James Moody on flute, and Lalo Schifrin on piano [more inside]
So griphus and I were watching 1973 cult classic The Wicker Man and my brain got thinking about Rocket Man and, well, here we are.
I apologize to basically everyone. [more inside]
I spoof EDM track "Animals" by using sounds from only my mouth and body. I posted a video of me making it here: Acapella Animals [more inside]
Taylor Swift needs to write more songs about classic Star Trek episodes, but until she gets around to it herself I'm doing what I can to rectify the situation. [more inside]
It's well known that Radiohead went to Bob Dylan for inspiration on the title of Subterranean Homesick Alien; it's less well known that they actually lifted the song structure and lyrics themselves from this rare demo recording. [more inside]
Some rollicking bluegrass as a spoon to the heart of Bryan Adams, Kevin Costner, and basically that whole period of the early 90s. [more inside]
A pragmatic carol for hungover sinners. Oh come let us eat breakast.
A cover of a holiday classic. This is my first real multi-track project. [more inside]
flapjax at midnite was kind enough to do a mix for me that brings out the vocals better.
When Elvis Met Leonard. Nothing but uke, vox, and questionable taste. [more inside]
An attempt to create a recording of the late-90s boozehound anthem Tubthumping that sounds as flat and obnoxious as the hundredth chorus of fratboys singing along with it did by the end of that decade. Happy St. Paddy's Day!
Being an apology-by-request to robocop is bleeding for trouncing him unmercifully in a recent game of Diplomacy. [more inside]
Kris Kringle! No! Do not give him coal! [more inside]

This was part of a musical satire project, lampooning Black Metal. It's too easy to make fun of the dress, , so I instead went with a slightly more conceptual satire.. I covered widely regarded classic Black Metal tracks, as Country songs. This track is a cover of Satyricon's seminal Black Metal milestone, "Mother North (original)" [more inside]
A parody of the Portal end-theme, as written by robocop is bleeding earlier this afternoon. Confused? See this post for background on the original song. [more inside]
"My deepest sympathies for posting this. I lack all attempts at rhythm and meter, and don't even have a nice English accent to back things up!"
Me and my Casio ( and my brother's guitar). I'm a liitle embarrassed posting this after listening to the other recent stuff, but hey, I'm learning a lot from you guys. I suck at guitar, so please excuse that part, and the snare is me doing it with my mouth. Still learning panning, fades, etc...the basics.
I can't believe it never occured to me until tonight to post what is by far my most famousest song! This is not actually the recording I made back in August '05. This is a somewhat improved version that I made about a year ago. The improvements were really just redoing the vocals so they weren't as bad, and putting in the electric guitar part. It's funny-ha-ha.
