Schnauzers and Recording Time

Posted by on Nov 28, 2011

I get to record in the Berklee studios for the first time tonight! The only thing is that my throat is killing me and my session is midnight to 3am. Oh the joys of college. I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! I went to my uncle’s house and we listened to music and ate lots of delicious food and I restrung my ukulele. It was pretty beautiful. On a bit of a sad note, my dog died yesterday. I’m pretty bummed, but she was approximately 2 bjillion years old and kind of a hot mess. So right now I’m moping and listening to Pink Floyd and writing this blog post instead of cleaning my room. Wow this post is totes bipolar. Sorry about that. I’ll post a happy song soon to compensate. Love,...

The Joy of Trader Joes

Posted by on Nov 7, 2011

Can’t go wrong with Almond Butter!” I replied with a “Thanks, dude!” and then he went on his merry way up the escalator. I love making new...

It’s Only a Matter of Time…

Until I am impaled by an umbrella. Now, I’m sure the inventor of this seemingly useful contraption was merely attempting to better human kind and prevent his brethren from being sopping wet at inconvenient times of their lives. However, in Boston I have found this invention to be obsolete. This is mostly because the rain does not fall in a vertical fashion, rather I am convinced it ejects itself up from the ground or “falls” whichever way it fancies, leaving the umbrella-bearer just as sopping as his umbrella-less peers. That is my rant. Thanks for stopping...

Do you know what I do for adventure? Hang glide on a Dorito.

Posted by on Oct 20, 2011

This week has been filled with philosophical conversations and dark chocolate covered espresso beans. Also, I have to write a lead sheet for seven vocalists for the song “What becomes of the Brokenhearted.” First I have to figure out how on earth I’m going to do that. (I’m of the “There’s only one thing we need to know before we go to Katmandu…Which way is Katmandu?” mentality). In other news, I just got my tickets for Berklee’s production of “Rent” and a guy in my vocal ensemble is playing Mark…no big deal. And several butchers’...
