It's Cold Outside

Actually it's freakishly warm for early March. But this is a song I thought was lost forever and I would never hear again. Lost my copy more than 20 years ago. My first recording, a warbly duet with John Flansburgh on Clevland Ohio's The Choir's "It's Cold Outside" Not to be confused with the beaten into your head every Christmas "Baby It's Cold Outside." Recorded in our dorm room at Antioch College. Much thanks to Russell Turner for preserving the recording and taking the photograph.


Flower Girl

Although not done intentionally this release has a lot of songs about dead people on it.

Flowers are popular at funerals.


Steve Jobs

I posted an earlier version of this a year or so ago and then recently found it on youtube. I don't know why it was there but I decided a new version was in order. So here it is.

I seem to be inadvertantly creating a collection of dead people songs over the years. I'm sure I'm forgetting some but this includes Spalding Gray, Mae West, Yvette Vickers, Natalie Wood, King Richard the Third, Lawn Chair Larry.

I tried and failed to write a song about Jeanne Geiger, a wealthy New Yorker who bought up most of Plum Island, MA to make a resort that was all blue. She fell to her death from the balcony of her Blue Hotel while cleaning up dog poo.

Sort of writes itself doesn't it? Maybe too much.


At Once A Party I Felt Too Old At Twice A Party I Felt Too Young

Sort of sums up why I'm not going out tonight. That and it's way too cold.
