Happy Birthday, Don’t Cry

A song about my great aunt.

Regular Nursing Home Diary Fan Fiction
I woke up late. 3am. My roommate is still asleep. She sleeps with her mouth open and she still has all her teeth, so instead of being repulsive, she is inspiring. Inspiring might be the wrong word. I dreamed she had blood soup for dinner. In the dream she wouldn’t tell me what she was eating. It looked like tomato soup but bloody. I don’t watch tv anymore but I think falling asleep to her television show had something to do with my dream. Before falling into slumber, I saw a man pull the heart out of another man and my brain made blood soup for dreams.
3:30am
I made instant coffee and pulled out a Little Debbie sweet roll. i usually put it in the microwave for 7 seconds with one end opened but I didn’t want to wake my roommate Sharon. She can be sweet when she wants to.
When 6am comes, I will get real coffee and begin calling people who have birthdays. Mostly, strangers. By the way, it’s Sharon’s birthday. So, I will sing quietly into her dream ear.

THE BALLET – SEVERED: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein’s Monster

I collaborated with Angela Harriell from The Love Show along with David Slone and my band .357 Lover. I decided that if I was going to fail at something, I would fail big. The gamble paid off and I’m very, very proud of this. My friends volunteered their time to be in the choir: Chris Anderson, Philip Costello, Royce Peterson, Harlan Muir, Wilder Selzer, Robin Goldwasser, Ken Weaver, Crystal Durant, Cathy Cervenka, Cara Kohl, Joanna Choy and Alexis Karl.
I consider myself very fortunate to have friends who want to work with me.
We will do it again.

Ballet with .357 Lover and The Love Show

Severed: The Tragic Loves of Frankenstein’s Monster
Thursday, March 6
The Highline Ballroom
NYC
431 W 16th St. (between 9th & 10th Ave)
Tickets and info – http://highlineballroom.com/show/2014/03/06/severed-the-tragic-loves-of-frankensteins-monster/

The Love Show and Corn Mo bring you an original rock opera ballet, based on the .357 Lover album The Purchase of The North Pole, which was inspired by the Jules Verne novel of the same name. The anthemic stadium rock of .357 Lover combines with visceral theatrical dance of The Love Show to explore the many loves of a man made up of many men. A metaphor for the human condition, this powerful show is an all-out rock ‘n’ roll celebration of the agony and ecstasy of the fragmented lives we all live! – See more at: http://highlineballroom.com/2014/01/29/severed-rock-opera-ballet-just-announced/#sthash.vCPQ2CGq.dpuf

CURTAINS Music

You can hear all of the tracks from the Good/Bad CURTAINS show, which is now an infomercial. Each track represented a different room for the show. Mine was the children’s room. My friend, Will Robison, recorded his 4-year-old kid talking about her fascination with skulls.
On another note, I was in a glam-rock band with Daron Beck called The Golden Vipers. He has a new band called Pinkish Black.

Art on the TV

Last fall, I wrote a piece for an art show created by my old art collective Good/Bad. There were four rooms relating to stages in life. Mine was the child’s room. So, I recorded a variation on the theme of the four rooms that included my friend’s 4-year-old talking about her fascination with skulls.
The second part of the installation was to provide an late-night informercial. It airs next week in LA. Set your vcr’s.
