Score: The Longest Darkest night

Here's a demo of a relatively new song.

The Noteflight Score
Listen to the song as you read along wth the notes and words. Or print it out and learn it!
(All you pros out there, I don't wanna hear about imperfections and inconsistencies. Just the genius!)

I tried to evoke light in the darkness, amidst the sadness unique to Christmas Eve 2016. In its original form, I ended up joking that I tried to write Christmas song, and ended up writing a Christian song. I tweaked it a little further, and now it has that universal message I like.
My motto: "Vague but true."

Book Review: The Path Between The Seas

The Path Between The Seas by David McCullough

"A man, a plan, Panama." Ferdinand de Lesseps or Teddy Roosevelt is the man. Or maybe John Stevens. You choose. The Panama Canal was a beast of an undertaking. A big book about a big project.

Two Baseball Book Reviews

Big Hair and Plastic Grass by Dan Epstein
Bucky F*cking Dent by David Duchovny

Baseball! Both of these books focus on baseball in the '70s. Very different focus, though. One is historical, the other fiction. Or historical fiction, though that term makes me nervous.

Blew To Me

Every now and then I make a video for an older song. The latest is "Blew To Me", from the POST CD.
This the first video I've posted that has Closed Caption embedded. So check those out!

Dear Senator Roy Blunt

I can only hope that you are not supporting the many destructive items on the GOP agenda. Should you choose to remove the existing healthcare laws and replace them with something that leaves me and many others derelict, I will hold you responsible. If something already exists, and you actively vote to remove it, then you're taking it away, personally. So I would be compelled to send all of my medical bills directly to you, the one senator from Missouri responsible for the ACA removal.
This applies for all the destructive legislation in the GOP/Trump agenda. Every time you support Trump, you are complicit, obviously.
No one can make you do anything. You are your own man. If your party is actively destroying America's support system, and you vote with it, that means you are actively destroying it. Try not to be on the wrong side of history.

The Democratic Process

1. Appease antagonists
2. Scorn allies for caring wrong.
3. Accept my congratulations.
