Intervention

Cinnamon Urns, 3.5 years ago, in what was Ari and Sara’s apartment and what is now my friend Dov’s apartment.

Me, Ari, Mike, Christy, Anne. No Gale yet.

Cinnamon Urns at Ari & Sara’s House

Mike, Christy, Ari, and Anne were all kind enough to help fulfill my angst fantasy with a cover of the Arcade Fire’s “Intervention.” I’m having as much fun in this video as it looks like I’m having.

Other hits that night included Mike’s O God of Mercy, O Wild God and Ari’s I Never Found Out What She Wanted Me For.

Uncollected Remixes, For Your Convenience

I like the life that web content can take on. Occasionally people get a hold of one of my remixes through various searches or words-of-mouth or links and love/hate them in equal measure. Most recently in remix news, Tom’s friend included one of my songs in a fashion show. I like thinking of sexy people on runways being sexy to my songs.

I haven’t done any remixes since my old laptop broke in early 2008. My new laptop is a Mac and isn’t compatible with the software. (I am unwilling to try and make the best of it with GarageBand.) My old laptop could be fixed or we could get a new computer, but until then, no new songs.

However, before it broke, I did five new songs and posted them on this site. I like them all about as much as I like anything on my last album, and decided to re-post them, all together, along with their component tracks. Three are easy downloads, two require a quick stop at MySpace, all are free, all are personally endorsed by Barack Obama, Abe Lincoln, and Winston Churchill.
