Filed in the “Good Things Happen” Department… Part 27.

Share Button

I have no idea if this is the 27th time I’ve written  a “”Good Things Happen” post. I’ve written a few. The number just popped in my head, and I ran with it. This is going to be a fun music-filled weekend. Tonight, my band Laurel Canyon is playing its first two hour show ever […]

New Lyric?… Or Bagged Lyric???

Share Button

I wrote this… But I might have bagged it from someone else, from some other song! It used to be my way or the highway Until I realized The highway is much more fun! I don’t care if I stole it… I’m keeping it!!!!   Any other songwriters have this conundrum of constant fear that […]

My Latest Song…. “The Cost Of Freedom”.

Share Button

It only took 27 years from the time I started it to finishing it this week! I’m pretty sure this is one of the ones I came up with while riding my bike the ten miles from Mesa College to my house when I lived in San Diego. The ** indicates the bit that has […]

Somethimes, Good Things Happen! Part 387,279

Share Button

Sometimes, things come together without planning. My duo group, Taylor-Martin, my project with Jim Rust, has grown! With the addition of Jorge Apsey, we are now a trio, and Laurel Canyon is born! As the historical name implies, we are modeling our sound after the bands that came out of that area – CSNY, Byrd’s, […]

The First Song I Ever Wrote.

Share Button

It’s called “Insanity”. As I said, it was the first song I ever wrote. My song writing journey started when I was about thirteen. So, I’m 47 now. That means it took some 34 years to complete this song! Many if not most of the songs I’ve written over the years are incomplete. In the […]

And Then There Were Three!… Icebergs. (Open Mic Stuff)

Share Button

OK. Up front I admit I bagged the title of this post from the 1979 Genesis album of the same name. But this post has nothing whatsoever to do with Genesis, except that all the guys in that band did solo projects… And so am I! Yes, the U. S. S. Titanic has sailed once […]

Just One Tear – Final Lyric Edit. (I’m pretty sure)

Share Button

Well, it took eighteen some years, but I finally finished this lyric. It’s a song about losing a friend, someone you really cared about, and not getting to mourn “the right way” because you missed the service. Here is the backstory. Now, if my neighbors stupid car alarm that’s screaming through my window will just […]

For The “Occupy” Protesters.

Share Button

I don’t always agree with your methods; I don’t always agree with some of the more extreme views on display; and I can’t stand the whole bused-in and paid-for bodies that are there mixed in the crowd. But, that said, I absolutely understand why many of you truly feel betrayed by the system. Here are […]

Yet Another New Lyric….

Share Button

In response to someone calling me a liberal and Truther for saying the Star Trek DS9 episode “In the Pale Moonlight” is somewhat analogous to the Global war on Terror concerning torture and Gitmo. I was on another thread issued this challenge: Hey, sf – You could rewrite it to touch upon your crypto-Troofer beliefs […]

My Ode To Occupy Wall Street… UPDATE!

Just wrote it on a whim for Althouses Blog! “Oh my Gaia I’m so distressed I can’t afford expensive dress Cause I’m kind of poor but we know that I’m a young progressive Democrat I march all day and yell and scream I’m joined by Ben and Jerry’s ice cream! I’ve not a clue my […]
