In my mind, all of Europe resembles the set of a 1930s werewolf movie. This is probably because The Dead Milkmen once toured what was formerly Yugoslavia: which was basically…well the set of a 1930s werewolf movie. My point is that Europe is spooky. Europeans really need to embrace that spookiness. Romanians gave us Dracula. The French – the Phantom of the Opera. The British – well, just look at their food. It’s something I like to call The Brotherhood of The Spooky.

She Past Away (Yes, that’s the way it’s spelled! You know what else? The Beach Boys covered “California Dreaming”, so get the fuck off my back!!!)

See you tomorrow.

2015: The Busiest Year of My Life. Part 3 – Actor-Man!

I’m in the process of making a brave and possibly futile attempt to document some of the more interesting things that happened to me in 2015 (the busiest & strangest year of my life) over a series of posts. I hope you enjoy them. If you don’t, bite me!

It’s March of 2015 and I’m stumbling around while muttering about the Kennedy assassination.  

The sentence above will make sense if you watch this…

That’s the How to Apply To College episode of Welcome to Anhedonia, which is a show I sometimes act in.

Lesson_4_musicians Lesson for musicians: Act, Paint, Bake, Raise Lemurs, whatever…
Acting is great way to get a new perspective on writing  lyrics. I do this by performing rambling monologues – which I’d be doing even if a camera wasn’t pointed at me.  Acting is also helpful if you think of your edited scenes as remixes (unless all of your best scenes end up on the cutting-room floor. Phil Collins claims this is what happened to his best work in the “It’s No Fun Being an Illegal Alien” video). And ad-libbing is pretty much the Theater (is evil) Major version of jamming only with tights instead of guitars.  The point is that you can learn something about music by studding  just about any other discipline (except, oddly, fencing).

Her’s the teaser for Season Two…

Next time: A Bohemian Rhapsody and  a tour.
