How, exactly, does one solicit Wikipedians to update one’s Wikipedia entry? Is there a dark web where one leaves offerings of Chocodiles and Samwell Tarly fanfic in exchange for accuracy, if not flattery?
I hesitate to edit myself lest my neutrality or hell, notability be called into question. However, friends and complete strangers think I still live in Dar Es Salaam.
Let’s see… I’ve been back in the states since 2014, living in Durham NC for almost a year now. I’m doing very well under the circumstances. I will have some new music out there sooner than you’d expect and later than you think.
Played pianorgan on this sweet little King Radio song not long before my dad passed away. Not a song about grammar.
I almost forgot about taking part in Durham’s delightfully eclectic Pop Up Chorus a few years back, gleefully conducted by my old peep (and Pop Psychology hornsmith) Seamus Kenney. I never actually make it on camera (look for my striped blue short sleeve shirt from behind) but you can definitely hear me in there. It was a great time, but the next morning I got a brutal kidney stone. Damn you, salty delicious barbecue.
I contributed a cover of “I Hate My Generation” to an upcoming Sloan tribute record. How upcoming? It drops this Friday the 5th on Detroit’s Futureman Records. They’re even taking pre-orders.

It’s an admittedly highly interpretive take on the original, and I managed to sucker an amazing band into it: Josh Hicks on the sticks, Joe Giddings (ex-Star Collector) and Steve Della Maggiora on guitars, Frank Padellaro (you may know him from King Radio or the Scud Mountain Boys) on bass and Brandi Ediss on shouting.
And me on harmonies. Lots and lots of harmonies. Do you remember how Moxy Früvous’ Get In The Car basically ripped off the intro (and uh, general vibe) of Pen Pals? You don’t? Well, I sure as hell do!
Now that I am officially part-American, I have finally created my first petition. Could I get a witness? I require 150 signatures for my petition to show up on the White House website:
Governor Rick Snyder’s actions have caused irrepairable harm to the families of Flint, Michigan. Gov. Snyder needs to be indicted for criminal negligence in the matter of the poisoning of the city water of Flint, Michigan, and if found responsible he needs to be charged.
So please, sign and share! It only seems fair.
Archive dive for Theme Music One-Word-Titles: “A”
Footage from a solo show at the Empty Bottle, Chicago around 1998 or ’99. Never bothered to write the damn date on the VHS tape. No later than 2000 anyhow.
Yes, THAT one. “The letter U and the numeral 2.” A cover for Theme Music by my tremendously amorphous side project Virgins and Philistines. Enjoy until it gets content ID’ed out of existence.
A duet with the charming Zoenda McIntosh of the fabulous b-side of Ian Whitcomb’s N-N-N-Nervous! (Also covered to remarkably different effect by Linda Ball, strangely also on a b-side.) Featuring the estimable guitars of Torbjörn Petersson. For Theme Music‘s Breaking Up theme. Enjoy!
Video for an unfinished song, made for Theme Music‘s Lost (unreleased song) and Found (the footage) themes.
