1. A Catchy Tune Proves Nothing



It begins again!  Here's the first album from this year.  My point with this tune is that one infectious track doesn't mean much without the heft of consistency.  Write a bunch of catchy tunes and we'll talk, OK?  I did make the correct prediction that this album was the first of two for the year, but that's not exactly the same thing as Babe Ruth calling his home run way back when.  I mean, I had a plan and a budget and things turned out right.  In the perfect world, it would have been three albums this year and every year, but since nobody buys anything I make, that limits what I can do.  Anyhow, here is Untitled Vanity Project.

Unobscure at Last - Entire Album

Here's the whole damn thing.  Is anyone listening?  For me, that's the eternal question.

14. Predators, Pt. 4



This is the fourth installment in a song cycle that will continue for years, assuming I don't go utterly broke or give up out of frustration or anything.  Of course, I'm only estimating, but I think the whole thing may comprise of 25+ tunes.

13. A Little Fight



It's a space-age blues with real horns.  Fun!

Your Sunday Squirrel

I saw this fellow on Thursday.  He was nice enough to hold still while I crept closer and closer to him.  There were a lot of other squirrels running around, too, but they were really skittish.  They ignore you until you get a few feet away, then they freak out and head for the nearest tree.  As they get older, though, they get friendlier.

Well, the Bikes Have Arrived...

This is what they look like.  I went to the Pronto site to see where all the stations are and you know something?  The bikes are only available Belltown/Downtown/Capitol Hill and in the U-District.  So if I wanted to ride out to Fremont or Ballard, I'd be totally hosed.  Still, it seems like people are riding them.  That's something, I guess.

12. Basically OK



A glum tune about amazing (and fictitious) things.

10. OCDelight



This song is intended to drive nearly everyone with various kinds of audio OCD completely nuts.  You've got dissonances, odd phrases, a slice-and-dice form and lyrics that don't quite make sense.  But it's still very funky.  Enjoy!

Breaking News!

This is what they're doing to the side of Vain, formerly the Vogue.  What does it mean?  Hey, it's art; it doesn't need to mean anything!  Seriously, I think there's much Seattle-referential stuff.  But some of these leave me a little mystified.  In any case, there is a lot going on here.  Well, I can't wait till it's done.  I'm pretty sure they'll be working on it tomorrow.  It's on 1st, between Lenora & Virginia.

3rd & Bell

This morning.
