May 11

As suspected, I'm still dealing with the whole break-up business. I'm not sure which order of emotions suits you best, but for me it goes like this: shock, sadness, anger...and then a little lingering malaise (or is it apathy? I'm not sure.) I got to feeling tired of always having to get over shit. Seems there is always something else to get over, and wouldn't it just be easier not to let any of it get to you anymore--like you were your own personal army, and you're not going to let anyone thru your defenses this time. Thus sprang this weeks song. If you are offended by people using the word fuck then you shouldn't listen to this song. I think I use it about 30 times. There goes the chance for any radio play on this one. Oh well...

This weeks song is called: i Am an Army

May 2

Well, I guess I can no longer call this One Song Per Week, can I? It's been more like One Song Whenever I Friggin' Feel Like It.
Things have been busy and distracting and stressful around here, but there is nothing like a good break-up to get the old creative sap running again on overload.
So here is the newest one, hot off the proverbial press.

It's called A Parting Gift

Oh man, I've got a scorcher for next week.

Oh, hello there!

This weeks song was a bit hurried because it's late and I have an early plane to catch...seriously, that's not just an excuse. The red eye bound for Florida. The Girlfriend is going to be playing at The Ultra Music Festival with Paul Van Dyk. If you haven't checked her out yet, go here.
As I've been remiss in posting lately, I have this song to offer as an apology. It was somewhat of a struggle because the amount of vocal tracks is staggering--i'm a sucker for harmonies, and they absolutely haunt me until I get them out of my head.

This weeks song is called: Slow Signal Fade

Portland!


Well...umm...yeah, it's been awhile. I have been busy stirring up my life again just when the pieces started to settle. I've decided I'm going to leave sunny LA for the gray soggy streets of Portland!
Oh Portland, how i've missed you! More details on that as they develop.
In other news, i'll be posting up a new song this weekend (hopefully), so stay tuned. Thanks to everyone who has sent me emails saying they miss the page! I miss it, too. Oh life gets in the way of everything, doesn't it?

Semi-retirement

Hello all. I realize that I don't have the time nor the energy to keep up the blog, so it's going into a semi-retirement. I'll still be perusing your blogs, and posting here when I can. Thanks for all the support over the months!
If you want to keep up with my band over at the myspace, go here:

j.e.

p.s. Here we are playing on the worlds smallest stage. My guitarist had to stand on the floor because he couldn't fit.

The blossoming video idea

Sooooo...the peeps that did the video for Lo-Fi Sugar are going to do one for mwah, too! Should be fun! But what they can't seem to decide is which song to use. The two choices they presented are for the song GiveUp, or the song Almost. So I leave it to you, gentle readers, to vote on the matter.

Almost

Oh, and the next song...

Hello all...
I've been a bit busy with some musical projects (a video in the works, as well as some collaborations) to actually get down to business and post stuff here. I'll return soon, I promise.

Song #21

Song 21 and 1/2?

Well, I finished this song, although i'm not sure that im totally happy with it. But as the week is wearing on, I need to get working on the next insallment, so for now we'll just call it done and move on.
Remember when I went to Bemidji, Minnesota (where it was -20 friggin' degrees!) last month because the girlfriend was shooting a music video? Well, they finished it and its up on You Tube...but I have posted it here as well.
(watch for my tiny tiny cameo as they enter the bar. I'm holding the hatchet... as usual?)

Song #21 and 1/2 is called: Vanishing

Song #20

Well, it's a little late...
Had some help from a proper studio and a live drummer, I recorded the rest in my apartment. This one is about reaching the end of your limits and just freaking out.

Song #20 is called: Brick by Brick

Song #19

I brought in some live drums on this one. I'm not too good at recording live drums, but it's the best I could do...so deal with it, eh?
This song is called 'Everyday' and when I googled the word 'everyday' this was the first picture to come up. HAHAHA!
The song is about a girl who was much more vicious than this little pooch could probably ever be, especially wearing lingerie.


Song #19 is called: Everyday

Song #18

Well, did everyone have a good New Years? I was sick, bleh! In fact, this stupid sickness seems to just linger. And just to ensure that I stay sick longer, we went snow shoeing!? Man, i'm tired of winter.
I tried to write a semi-happyish sounding song. I really love the Beach Boys, so I tried to give a Beach Boys feel to a part of this song. I hope it worked, altho I was sick when I recorded it.
Other folks have asked me what my favorite songs are that I have posted so far and I would have to say: song #8 song#10 song # 15 have been getting alot of play lately.

Anyway, song #18 is called: Burn This City Down!
