Voting for Music

Election day was Tuesday in the US. We chose our "leaders" who will "guide us" and begin the task of... eh, let's be honest, no one is entirely certain what they do. We vote because it's both a right and a duty. We hope we vote for the right person, and we hope that we vote for our lives to be better, happier, wealthier, and a brighter future overall.

Enough of that, let's talk about something far more important: music.

I know, I know, they have that show on TV where you can vote for singers, and the one guy insults everyone, and the other guy calls everybody dog... and yeah, they had the former Laker girl, and then those other two women, but one left, then the new two were let go, and the insulting guy bailed. Now they have the guy with the big lips and the chick with the big butt and what not, but this isn't what I'm talking about. I have no interest in idolatry (although you are welcome to shower me with hero worship). And, for the record, I've looked all of this up on the new search engine Blekko.

What I'm talking about is new music. Voting for songs. Helping me to decide. You see, there are fourteen songs that I've written that I believe all deserve a shot at getting onto my new album... but I'm not planning on releasing a fourteen song album. One song, "Grams", is a definite as I've said before. The other fourteen, however, I'm not so certain. Sure, two or three might be odds on favorites in my mind, but I was thinking of doing a ten song album. That means the other thirteen need to be whittled down to nine. Eh, maybe ten if I decide to do an eleven song disk. Either way, I intend to ask for your assistance.

Already, over on I've set up a couple of the demo songs for listening and for free download. Soon, however, when I finish the last demo song (two more to go) I'm going to create a page where you can listen to all thirteen of them. I'm going to ask you to tell me which songs you like. I'll even let you email me at if you have true, genuine feedback about a song or two (or a question). And then... we'll get down to it. Who knows, perhaps we can crank it out just in time for the end of the year! And you'll get to play an integral role.
