Lock your doors, close your blinds, and put on your tinfoil hat.

They're coming to get you!

I joined Lucy Steigerwald of The Stag Blog along with a panel of, er, fellow conspiracy theory enthusiasts for a chat about secret societies, the government, aliens, cryptids, and everything else that may or may not be out to get you. Watch it, if you dare.

Our chat – my second time on Politics for People Who Hate Politics – reminded me of my old song about aliens and paranoia, “the alien.” Knowing it was only a matter of time before the Men in Black get me, I decided it was time to give it a proper release. Well, that and I’ve been a horrible slacker when it comes to Patreon.

On April 21 I released my third patron-supported rushmore beekeepers song, “a good impression.” It was a quiet song when I wrote it but somehow turned into a rock song with electric guitar, drums and everything. (Well, electric guitar, bass and drums. So not everything, technically.) Read more and find out what book I still haven’t read on the Patreon creation page.

i used to be afraid of seeing ghosts
but now i wish i could
there are people i’d like to see again
and you, yeah you, yeah you, are one of them

i still have the book you said was your favorite
the last time we got together
i still can’t bear to open it up
but i promise i will, i will, i will read it someday

never know when you’ll get a bad news phone call
never know when your days will end
i just hope to leave a good impression
and you, yeah you, yeah you, you know i love you

Award for Not Playing Wagon Wheel

Okay, so everyone except one band won the award for not breaking the Darius Rucker Wagon Wheel Provision of 2012 (long before his version was recorded, CXCW notes). But hey, I’ll take that too.

Couch by Couchwest is a seriously awesome annual online music festival, open to everyone and completely free. (BYOB. And couch.) You can watch the performances from this year and previous years on their site, so don’t be sad if you missed it. Hop on the couch and get slothy!
