50/90 PLAN FOR 2019:
I had big plans for FAWM 2019, but life (just work; nothing "worse" than that) intervened, and I did NOTHING. Not a single song.
I hope to do better during 50/90 this year.
I need to do better.
All of my songs so far this 50/90 year are on a single theme. It's a bit subtle, but if you listen to each and every one of them with great care and attention you may be able to figure it out.
MY RECENT ALBUMS:
My most recent release (January 2019) is the debut EP Dirty Magazines (in the Woods) by "Owen's New Best Friends," a band I'm in with my friend Jay Mayo. I handle the music and lyrics, while Jay handles the vocals. This release is kind of hair-metal inspired. It's been very fruitful partnership so far! You can listen to the EP on Bandcamp, or Spotify, or Apple Music, or YouTube, etc., etc...
You can check out my earlier music (with me on awful vocals) at my website, including The King of July 4th, an eight-song mini-album by Burger Stuffer Supreme made up of songs about or inspired by competitive eating written for FAWM or 50/90 (with one exception) from 2014-2018, although somewhat to substantially re-recorded (including all vocals) in June 2018. There's also the full-length For Those About to Grow Your Beard (We Salute You) by Opinionated Whiskers, comprised of songs largely written during the 2017 50/90. Both are also at Spotify, etc.
In junior high a long, long time ago, I elected to take flute as my required instrument. Unfortunately, in my second year, I was put in a third-year class due to a scheduling conflict. Being so far behind everyone else made me miserable. As a result, I did . . . unfortunate things to my flute to sabotage it in order to try to get out of class.
The repair guy figured it out pretty quick.
Nonetheless, while I've always enjoyed a very active listening relationship with music, the whole experience pretty much killed any interest I had in making my own. Until over twenty years later, when for some reason I picked up a keyboard and a computer DAW.
And now, I'm loving every minute of it.
