My nerdy mind has been blown.

While visiting Colorado last week, my little brother Ian informed me of something that BLEW my nerdy mind. How do most people ignorantly pronounce our last name when they first read it? "For-sith". There are two words in the pronunciation: "Force" and "Sith." Wait...that's nothing. It gets better.

My parents had only 4 sons. Their given first names are:

J, E, D, I.

This is not a joke, nor, i believe a coincidence. My parents are sleeper Jedi...from Sith ancestry? Much to think about I have. Thank you master, Ian.

Another review of the new ep!

God bless Jeanie Straub and her flattering review of "The Thin of Thick Things" in the Colorado Music blog: READ IT HERE.

It's pretty fun to have Google alert me of reviews written about my new music.

The first review of the new CD

I've been sending out press releases, and some journalists have even been asking for CD's out of the blue. Good things are coming. The first little review hit yesterday on a great Colorado music and radio blog. You can read it here. If you need a reminder, the CD officially drops publicly on 9/21, and pre-orders are available now on my website. (*cough* click here "cough*)

In the meantime, I've got this Songwriters-in-the-round show coming up on Thursday in Denver. Two brothers, Daniel and Ian, will be in town for it, so "that's neat," as Jaime says. We're descending from the mountains just for this show, then heading back up again the next day.

On a tangential note, I'm really, really excited about my "vacation" next week with Daniel and Ian. I make an effort to not blog negatively about my particular species of "day" job and the way it can sometimes wear on me, but it suffices to say next week is well deserved and couldn't come sooner. That's all. We've been planning this since my dad passed away in November.

Sunweeds turn into Sunflowers

This image i snapped with my phone last week got a good reaction on facebook, so i thought i'd post it here.

Jaime planted little seeds in june that turned into what i referred to as "sunweeds" in front of our house for 2 months. But then they turned into these mutant flowers from outer space. Pretty cool. Good job, Jaime. Hooray for a south facing house and a cute wife.

I can't handle the truth.

This child is only happy because he's ignorant.

First, it's announced that Pluto's not a planet after all.

Now, The Triceratops isn't even a real dinosaur.I don't know how I'm going to break this to Jaime. It's going to be like telling Les Paul that it's been decided that the guitar isn't really a musical instrument.

Add to that, that we haven't started the prep work for colonizing Mars and it pretty much makes me question everything I was taught as a kid.

Sigh...And the Triceratops was my FAVORITE dinosaur. It still is. You can't stop me and my own personal reality.

A good Saturday

  • Started with getting up just in time to play a 10am gig at my home Louisville, CO Farmers Market. Sold some CD's got a bag full of free locally grown veggies.
  • Went to Target with Jaime. Bought her a nice tube for tubing down Boulder Creek.
  • Talked Ben and Breanne into tubing the creek with us.
  • Changed at home, drove into Boulder and had a great time riding the ripples, rapids and waterfalls of Boulder Creek with Ben and Breanne. Beautiful scenery, cool water, good company.
  • Went to REI and sampled free camp food. Walked out with nothing.
  • Ate a Döner Kebab made by a Vietnamese couple at a crazy little shack on the Hill in Boulder. Reminded me of Germany.
  • Walked across the parking lot and got frozen custard from a girl who was delighted to meet a young couple that was actually married. She thought that was pretty cool, like we were from a rare country she'd always wanted to visit, or something. The custard reminded me of Bucks County, PA.
  • Went to Pearl Street and bought some fake mustaches for Saturday night's party. Also bought a new pair of really comfy Patagonia loafers with birthday money from mom (thanks mom!)
  • Went home, took a nap (ahhh, that's what a nap feels like), showered and changed for the CP+B Summer Party at the historic Boulder Theater.
  • Met friends for dinner at Mod Market in Boulder. Friends who were NOT dressed for a CP+B Summer Party. Got some funny looks.
  • Went to the party where a hardcore costume and wig-clad cover band played rock hits with frightening precision and enthusiasm. Watched all my coworkers get drunk. It was a blast.
  • Got home sometime around 1am.
  • Blessed sleep.
