Open Your Eyes

My GF put together a photo slideshow video for one of my songs and put it up on YouTube. It's not the same as the classical stuff I have been putting up on this site so far, but I still think you all will like it. It's me singing and playing my guitar. The song is titled Open Your Eyes, and it was a live recording I did on my iPhone, but it still turned out rather well!

I'm still alive!

Oh boy, it's been way too long since my last post! I haven't had much of a chance to work on music since my last post, an out of state friend of mine came up for a week, plus thanksgiving, and christmas shopping, time with the girlfriend and family, I've been taking a mini-vacation. I did get some work done on my novel, so I haven't been completely unproductive, but I hope to get back to my music in the not too distant future. Just thought I should give a quick update so you all know I'm not dead... now back to procrastinating!

What I've been up to

Sorry for the lack of updates, my life has been really busy with Halloween and everything. I went to a friend's party on saturday, had a great time, peach flavored jello shots (tasted just like those peach ring gummy candies), introduced my GF to all my friends, everyone had a lot of fun plus my costume turned out really nice, decked out in Roman attire; it was sleeveless so I got to show off my new arms (I'm in the final week of p90x). A guy at the party was even dressed up as Tony from p90x, which was pretty amusing.

At about 1am that night me and my GF went to help out another friend who had gotten his car stuck 30min away, then we went to Shari's for some late night food and watched Always Sunny until 6am. After a 3 hour nap we got up at 9:30am and went on a Jazz lunch cruise thing, awesome food, view, and entertainment. Then we came home and passed out for a few more hours. After that it was time to watch Dawn of the Dead, The Walking Dead, and Dexter, plus hand out candy to trick-or-treaters (though we only got 3 kids at our house).

So basically I had non-stop fun for 2 days straight. What did you all end up doing/dressing up as for Halloween?

It's almost time for HALLOWEEN!

So I've got Halloween on my mind! What are you guys dressing up as this year? What are your plans? I'm going to be Mark Anthony (the Roman military leader, not the guy married to J-lo), it's a pretty nice costume, and also the first costume I have purchased in many many years. I usually just make my costumes or borrow other peoples' from previous years. Anyway, one thing I'm excited about for Halloween this year is the new show coming out on AMC called The Walking Dead. Anyone seen the pilot episode yet, and if so, did you like it? I know it's leaked online already, but I'm waiting to watch it on my big screen TV. Anyway, here's the trailer:

Here's what's up!

So the girlfriend met my mom today, so now we have met each others parents. It went really well, we went to a nice Italian restaurant and had a really good time. I knew everyone was going to get along, but it was good to see I was right. That was pretty much the last big step for us to take in our relationship for awhile so it should be smooth sailing from here on out. That's the reason for my lack of posts as of late, just been super busy in my personal life. I still need to do a lot of work on my 3rd album before I can publish the tracks, so please stick with me if you like the music I have already uploaded.

Anyway, off topic, I finally got around to seeing Social Network the other day, and found it to be quite fascinating. Anyone else see it?

Spring Side

Had a busy weekend, watched the UFC fights plus college football on Saturday, and met the girlfriend's parents on Sunday. Everything went great if you were wondering. Today's song is the last track of my 2nd Album, Reflections, and it's meant to be the wind down of the album, which I'm sure you will notice if you listen to the end as it slows down and drifts out almost like a lullaby. Spring Side is the title, and now with this track posted I have a bunch of work to do to get my 3rd (currently untitled) album named, the songs ordered and named, and posted in the upcoming weeks. It might take me a little time, but stick with me folks and I know your ears will thank you!

Today's song is one of my favorites. My nephew wrote the beginning and then asked me to finish it for him, and this is the final product. The song builds up slowly at first but soon gets quite exciting, before ending in a dynamic crescendo. Rapture is available in the player, and as usual all songs can be downloaded by clicking the 'S' in the top part of the player. Enjoy this one folks, I'm really proud of it!
