OK, so it’s been a while since I’ve been productively making music & actively writing songs. Apparently the bug never goes away. I have been thinking about doing punk rock-ish kids songs for a while. (The Sablowskis beat me to it!)
Yeah, there is the AiXeLsyD reunion gig coming up… whenever that is, and it doesn’t seem like Ernie and the Berts was all that long ago.
I saw a contest online last week and it sparked me to get my ass quickly in gear. Music Go Round in Monroeville is holding a guitar giveaway, and I have been mentally drooling all over Eastwood Guitars online for quite some time. The Side Jack is pretty awesome!
It would be really cool if you could help me win this axe by clicking “like” on this post: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=698216686929723&permPage=1
It may help to follow or like the Music Go Round Monroeville, PA Facebook page too. It has to be on that post on their page, no “likes” here or on my link(s) to it on my Facebook profile count. Voting is only open this week, they pick a winner on the 27th!
As far as the song goes, I threw it together in under an hour with a downloaded app for the tablet, using crappy headphones, the built-in mic on the tablet, and my acoustic guitar down in the basement. I think it shows. But, I still think it’s a hooky tune with some potential. I may have to recruit a few of the usual suspects or even some unusual ones to help me complete the process.
Molly is absolutely terrified of the Chick-fil-A cow. My guess is that other kids are too. Seems like we can find a whole lot more to relate to with some feet-tapping tunes!

I’ve been working mad OT, and this has happened…
I hope to get back to blogging my usual insanity as the need arises or as things calm down!

Well, that’s what they told us. Words can’t express how beautiful this is to me. Seeing that little heart beat today made it all hit me.
I’m sure I’ll post more funny goofy silliness about having a daughter eventually, but right now I’m just so happy and I wanted to share. I can’t wait to meet her!
Also, the feet on the printout were adorable, but I could be biased:

So, I’m gonna be a dad. It’s crazy. I’m the guy that plays in a punk band that sings songs about poop, gets his truck stuck in the mud, buys crazy guitars, and has Batman & Star Wars obsessions. I barely have my own life together, and now my wife & I are going to be responsible for another one? As crazy as it is, I think we’re ready. It’s exciting. We’ve been OK with the thought of having a kid for a while, it just never happened. We’re glad it’s finally happening. Some time in May, we should have a little boy or girl. We go on Saturday for an ultrasound to get an exact date.
Someday, someone is going to call me “Dad” and my wife “Mom”. The idea of it all is just incredible. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it all along the way. Before I start, any fatherly or parenting advice? Please leave some below! (Not on Facebook to Twitter!)
