Behind the Curve

Life continues to tumble mostly at random and I’m only now beginning to think about direction again. Hopefully, this will make up for lost time a little.


About to finish up the next song but this one still needs its day in the sun so here it is.

Let me know if you like this one. It’s a little different still but I really like it.

Recaptured Released

Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything at all here and I know all the spambots hate that but there’s something of note that I have to say now and I want it here.

I made a CD.

That’s right.

I took all the 19 songs I finished recording in 2011 and placed an order with a manufacturing company to duplicate them.
They’ll also be distributing the package electronically, hopefully very broadly.


If you know me and if you want a CD, get in touch and we’ll have coffee and I’ll bring one along.

Otherwise, feel free to order a CD or download here:

Thank you for your support.

And, your authentic comments are welcome.

As always, spambots need not apply.

Minor revisions.

Started reorganizing the music work on the external drive yesterday and made a couple of minor revisions to the mixes in a couple of songs. I’ve got one or two more that I’ve done some work on and then I think I’ll call the collection an “album” and start another collection. Undecided about this album title. Working title was originally “Better Than It Sounds” but that has kind of been taken over by events. I’ll post here once I’ve concluded and decided.

I’ve really enjoyed this process more than I anticipated and I’m grateful for the interest and support my friends and others have shown. I would likely do this even if no one else liked any of it, but it really makes my day when someone says they did.

Anyway, check these two out and please visit the Bandcamp site at where you can listen to and download all the songs.

Vote the Crime Out 2012

The political brinkmanship that’s going on in Washington D.C. at the moment is more than infuriating. It motivated me to go ahead and revise that old song of mine the way a friend has suggested: to give it a national character instead of the Louisiana-only lyrics of the original composition.

It’s pretty country-fried but I really like it and had a great time doing it. I hope you’ll take a couple of minutes to listen to it.

The thing is, you get the government you demand and therefore the government you deserve. If you’re not happy about what’s going on, with politicians playing political games with the nation’s economic strength and such remaining prosperity as we still enjoy in this country, don’t just accept it. Insist that they do the right thing and get informed about the issues yourself so you know what the right thing is.

Elected officials will come along and sell you political solutions like a brand of laundry detergent and if all you do is buy what they’re selling, we’re going to stay stuck where we are in this insane status quo of mismanaged entitlement programs and reactionary anti-government rhetoric.

We can easily have enough money to do more good and still have savings to work on long-term debt issues if we do it smarter, but it’s about adjusting both programs and taxes, not slashing either/or like they want you to believe.

We were doing it correctly just a decade ago, frankly, until someone realized they could buy votes with the savings…


This is an old song that has been significantly revised and I’ve spent a couple of weeks working on the rewrite.

I think it came out rather nicely.
