On Valentine's Day

On February 11th, 1963, the poet Sylvia Plath committed suicide. This is the song the elderly painter, Mr Thomas, who lived in the flat below hers, did not write about the event. An odd little ballad in 7/8. [more inside]

Boron Rod

I entered this over at Songfight a few months ago. The song for that week had to be titled "Boron Rod." I didn't know what that was so I had to look it up. [more inside]

When Did You Know

I had an idea for a sort of epic slow-build, slow-burn song but I didn't have time to work out an appropriately epic-in-length arrangement so this is a little under two minutes long instead. [more inside]

This Was Hardly A Moment

I decided this morning that it'd be fun to try getting involved at long last with Song Fight, but it turns out that submissions for the next round were due this morning. This is probably the most frantic writing-and-recording I've done in a couple years. [more inside]

So Weird

Submitted to SongFight (under pseudonym Minty Handy) for the about-to-be-posted fight "So Weird", and felt like posting it here as well. The musical journey from "where's my uke and what's this week's title?" to "oh crap, gotta pick up the kids, one more take and I'll submit it" took about an hour.

Our Love Violates Corporate Policy

Written and recorded for SongFight! [MeFi FPP] in March of 2005, with my wife contributing vocals. SongFight! is still around, and though I've done a few other songs, this is the one people seem to like so I thought I'd share it. If you like early 80s TV show theme songs, or musical theater, this will probably appeal to you. If not...well, consider yourself warned.
