about

For the month of January, I wrote and recorded a short song each day. My goal was to push myself to flush out ideas when I would normally shelf them or throw them away. I wanted to use the project as a way to force myself get better with certain instruments and recording technology including the Pro Tools, MPC1000 sequencer, and Yamaha DX-7 synthesizer (my new favorite). The result is an album of shorts, called "Cheese Plate Explanations."

Dollars Days:
You must pay 100 cents
to make sense
at dollar days
Track Name: Bricklayer in the Paint
I spend my days as a mason
laying bricks in a line

Everybody’s got a job to do by day and this is mine

I spend my nights as a player
posted up in the paint

Nobody can block a dunk from this bricklayer
I can’t be restrained
Track Name: Last Night I Dreamt I Stayed Up All Night
Last night I dreamt I stayed up all night
I woke up more tired than I’ve felt before
Track Name: Time For A New Job
I was working hard at a dead end job
I had this thought:
“What if I didn’t work here anymore?”

I started my search with an open mind
and a great resume
“I’ll just go back to school”
Track Name: Baby Gurl
Baby gurl
I have to let you know
I found the job of my dreams
No doubt, I will apply
Track Name: Controlling Boss
Stop.
Don’t touch that.
What are you doing?
You’re gonna break that.
Track Name: The Lady With No Lights On
The lady with no lights on
drives around all night long
Not knowing where she’s going
careless ‘til the dawn
Track Name: Finally Happening (Again)
It’s finally happening (again).
Track Name: My Psychiatrists
They get in my head and find what is wrong
But do not tell me, they ask me questions

Track Name: Land Man
Every day I work the land
I love this land
Yeah, I’m a Land Man
Track Name: In The Shower
The pressure was weak, the temperature was cold
I called the landlord to send that plumber over
I’m not sure what they did... now that H2O’s too hot
You could boil pasta in the bathwater we got
Track Name: Proud Runner
How many miles did I run?
I ran 4, you ran none
Track Name: Baptism Girl
Baptism Girl
Baptism Baby
Track Name: Waste of Electricity
The band next door is just fucking around
They haven’t played a fucking gig in a while

A waste of electricity
they practice right next to me

I’m thinking of knocking on their door
and telling them to shut the fuck up.
Some of us have work to do
Some of us have fans that are counting on us
Track Name: Call Outs
Calling out all call-outs:
I’m calling you out
for calling out this guy name Colin
“I heard he’s a shit bag
Let’s get him”
Track Name: Some Time Behind The Wheel
I turn the key, the engine roars
Now I’m soaring down the pike
Carefree and full of life
It’s what I need
Some time behind the wheel
Track Name: Bob Hoax
Heard it on BUR
It was perfect for the news
segue on NPR
CMJ top hit
Track Name: Comcast (My Friend)
Comcast, my friend
Slow internet
Track Name: Ballad of a Disappointed Voter
Why did you vote that way
on an issue so important to me?
It’s unbelievable
It’s inconceivable
that I would vote for you who votes that way
Track Name: Retired Dancer
I used to party all night, those days are over
Morning hours fit my persona
I get up early with a NY Times paper
drink a coffee
make my lunch for later
Track Name: I.C.E.
Call
In Case
of
Emergency
Track Name: Office Treats in the Common Space
Office treats in the common space
I’m gonna stuff you right in my face
I don’t care much for a calorie count
satisfaction's what it’s all about
It was a good idea at the time
but if I could take it back and rewind
I would pass on the donut with the jelly
‘cause now it feels like a ton of bricks in my belly, uhhhh
Track Name: Roommate Problems
Roommate problems
I can’t stop them
The bathroom is a mess
It’s essential
we make a schedule
or there’s gonna be bloodshed
Track Name: Shed Rock Band
We practice in a shed
We wanted a garage instead

Shed rock band
Track Name: Morrissey Syndrome
So much to say
but don’t know how to sing it
Take a shortcut to the melody
give yourself a healthy malady

Morrissey syndrome
