“Prairie Dogs” on the radio today!

So, there I was, minding my own business at the local Cooperative, when what to my wondering ears should appear? “Prairie Dogs.” It took me a second for it to register. I recognized the guitar part as something really familiar, then I realized what it was, then my voice came in.

Let me just say, it is still shockingly cool to hear myself on the radio, randomly and unexpectedly. I may try to be cool, but inside I’m doing that scene in “That Thing You Do.”

VH1, Carbon Monoxide, and Me

So, I was watching VH1 the other day, waiting for the fire alarm guys to upgrade my CO detectors, and I saw a video that made me think, “I could do that.” Hmmm.

I talked with a guy last summer who said nice things about my songs and my stage performance (!) and such and he thought a video out there on the interwebs was in order. He had a particular song in mind, but it’s a song that I haven’t recorded. So, I’ve been hemming and hawing and putting off this whole video thing. But ya know what? I have a whole CD of perfectly good recordings. Duh!

This realization has kicked me back into “I should make a video” mode. So, I’m gonna chat with my pals in the video business and see what we can do. One thing I can promise you: there will be no kissy-face in this video. Nor will there be a tire-swing or a blonde in a white dress with the sun behind her.

So, in addition to the RPM Challenge in February (that’s coming up pretty soon, isn’t it?); making another full-length CD with the guys; and making this website more interesting (freebies, blogs, videos, witty observations about airline food, outtakes, stuff like that); now we’re making a video. It’s gonna be a good year. Stay tuned!

Happy New Year!

So, the wheel has spun its way ’round again. It’s a shiny new year. I’m looking forward to this one. I hope to see many more of you much more often this year. I’m particularly looking forward to the RPM Challenge in February (and perhaps sharing the tunes with you this time) and dragging the guys off to the Milltown Recording Company again to record another full-length CD. I also hope and expect to post more stuff here and let y’all know how the music’s going and put up some more tunes and stuff. Just to keep it interesting.
