about

Audio from my YouTube videos! You don't even have to steal it or anything. It's all cropped down and CD quality. Don't say I never did nothin' for ya.

Eventually, most or all of these songs will be recorded properly and released as real albums. For now, enjoy the live takes!

credits

released March 21, 2014

"Cabbage Rose" produced by and featuring Aaron J. Shay. "Bulldog Skin" featuring Strangely Doesburg.

Track Name: Nerdy Pop Culture Property Song
Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Would you like that too?

You like Star Wars, right?
Han totally shot first
I only watch the first three
'cause the prequels were so trashy
But the new Disney stuff might be alright
(Shit, you're losing them!)

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Would you like that too?!

How about Doctor Who?
He's a madman in a big blue box
Fighting Cybermen and Daleks
Sometimes blowing shit all to heck
But - I mean - he always tries to do - the right - crap

Arrested Development!
Uh..something about illusions not tricks
And there's a banana stand, and a muscle suit
And...David Cross blows himself?
Aw shit, I blew the joke
I don't know what I expected.

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Then you'll like that too

If I keep singing about pop culture
I know I just can't lose
I gotta keep up with that pop culture
If I ever wanna get on JoCo Cruise

Hey!
You guys like stuff, right?
And you like stuff about the stuff you like
So if I sing about the stuff you like
Will you like that too?
Will you like that too?
Would you like me too?
Track Name: The Fall of Western Civilization
The Fall of Western Civilization, or: "Pumpkin Spice Time"

C
Everyone's putting 'way electric fans
G
And getting out their sweaters
C
We've stopped _worrying about our tans
G
and thinking 'bout something better

Am
The air is getting crisper
F
And I've started wearing socks
Am
Everywhere I go there's whispers of
F G
a time that's not on clocks

Am
but nevertheless it's coming soon
F
and wait- no- is it- here?
Am
Has it finally truly started,
F G
this, my favorite time of year?

C
It's everything tastes like pumpkin spice time
F
A scarves and hats are feeling nice time
C
Cinnamon-nutmeg-clove-and-allspice
G F C
Everything tastes like pumpkins now

It's popularized by Starbucks lattes
but everywhere you go now is that taste
in cookies and candy and body lotion
And now that it's here I've got a notion

That Halloween is just 'round the bend
you better start costume shopping friend
and after that Thanksgiving so tasty
And then--let's focus on fall, don't be too hasty

because it's
everything tastes like pumpkin spice time
A shorts and sunglasses at half price time
Cinnamon-ginger-clove-and-allspice
Everything tastes like pumpkins now

Am G
We won't be seeing the sun too often
Am G
The only drawback to what the Brits call "Autumn"
Am G
Get on your boots and button up your flannel
Am F G
Sorry if you've got solar panels

'cause it's
everything tastes like pumpkin spice time
eating your feelings by the slice time
Cinnamon-nutmeg-clove-and-allspice
Everything tastes like pumpkins

Everything tastes like pumpkin spice time
Getting harder to find a nice rhyme
Cinnamon nutmeg clove and ginger and sometimes mace and apple cider and cocoa and leggings and what the heck is allspice
Everything tastes like pumpkins now
