I don’t know if anyone really cares, but…
I’m going to put out a Ghost Children of Calico 7” record (featuring 6 of my songs) on the record label I co-own. It’ll be on cool colored vinyl and will have a nice cover. It’ll basically be a wonderful package all around. I just doubt anyone will buy it. But at least I’ll have something finally out on physical media.
The Protists - “Snapshot”
Here’s a song I wrote and recorded in 1997, when I was still in High School. It was on a CD I put out by my pre-Ghost Children of Calico side project, The Protists.
The whole CD is available for free here: http://weerockrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-protists
Remember a month or more ago when I recorded a video with a friend of mine? Well, now you do.
This Weeks Batcave Files: Ghost Children of Calico performing his song “I Loved You Then as I Love You Now.”
My friend Matt talked me into playing one of my songs for his new video series. If you’ve ever wanted to see me very nervously play one of my songs, this is your chance. Thanks.
I was going to send some of my songs to some record labels I like, but all of them say they don’t accept submissions.
So, screw it.
Happy birthday to the girl who changed my life forever (for better or worse). This whole blog, and most of the songs I’ve written and posted here, wouldn’t exist if I hadn’t met her. I think I have about 47 songs I’ve written for this project, and probably 40 of them are either about her or inspired by her in some way.
I miss her, and I hope she has a good birthday.
Ghost Children of Calico - “Close Your Big Green Eyes”
June 27, 2012
Good night, green bean.
A talented pal of mine wrote a sort of “reply song” to my bugs song. It’s great. Listen!
Wrote a song after getting home from playing a show.
It’s a happier song for once.
Ghost Children of Calico - “Bugs”
September 11, 2014
Here’s a thing. It’s pretty self explanatory. I don’t like it.
I got bugs in the apartment, baby
I got bugs crawlin’ on my feet
I got bugs in the apartment, honey
Having bugs ain’t really neat
I’m quickly losing my mind
I’m on edge there is no doubt
I need someone to set me on fire
I gotta find a way to get out
My neighbor just moved out
Apparently she had bugs
Now they are all mine
And i wanna shoot myself in the face
I kind of wish someone would shoot me in my sleep.
This is me.
Ghost Children of Calico - “Salt Water Taffy”
June 1, 2012
A true story of love, depression, and a girl’s mom who loves salt water taffy.
I doubt you ever look at this blog anymore, but I still love you.
And i always will.
Just saw The Breeders. It was pretty amazing.
I wanted to record a song today…
But instead, all I’ve done is watch episode after episode of “Disappeared” and play guitar all day. I lead a boring, pathetic, lonely life, folks.
If anyone who runs a record label reads this and wants to put out some of my songs on a record, message me.
