It's out

Some of you may or may not know that I love music. I've done a lot with it over the years.

Well, I've reached a monumental step in my love of music--I submitted a demo tape. These are the three songs I put on it--let me know what you think in the comments. These were for a demo, and aren't professional quality recordings. I did my best with them, but there are still some noticeable deficiencies. These are free to download for the time being--hope you enjoy :)

This one is called "Disappear" I wrote it in highschool while suffering from insomnia late at night in my room on my keyboard.

This is called "Numb." It's about my battle with depression. I wrote this one two weeks ago.

This last one is my favorite--and many of you have heard it already. One More Night. It's the first love song I wrote for Dani when we were 17. She dumped me shortly after hearing this.

Recent N-isms

1: I like to play with my kids and I'm very playful with them. So, when I was making N some Chocolate Milk, it was in her sippy and I was shaking it up. I made it into a little bit of a dance in front of N and started saying in rhythm, "shake shake shake."
N gave me a funny look, held her hand out in front of her in the "stop" position and said, "no no no, I don't shake."

2: N loves being a big sister. The newest development in this matter is that she's started trying to carry V around. She gets her in a full nelson lock and then squats until V's legs are just barely off the ground. It's very funny to see a near 3-year-old carry around a near 1-year-old

3: Again, when playing with N, we were doing the "superman" game, where I grab her arms, roll onto my back and then lift her into the air. Well, while she was in the air, she accidently let out a toot. Not a big deal, but she turned bright red, grabbed her bottom and said, "whoops."

Why I'm (still) a Mormon

I don't expect much more to ever be posted on this blog, and I'm largely just posting this to share it with some particular friends....
