What's New

rainy sunday afternoon

I improvised this while playing guitar for my daughter while she took her bath, one rainy Sunday in 2008, having just driven home from my wife’s cousin’s wedding in Vermont. I was just singing what was going on. Then it seemed worth remembering.

It took two years to get it recorded. The rain storm recording was from last night, after I spent most of the day finishing the solo guitar and bass tracks.

The Rose and the Daisy

I got my daughter a lap dulcimer for her birthday in… 2007 maybe? Then, of course, I fooled around with it some. One day I was playing this. Clara asked what it was called, and I said I didn’t know - had just made it up - and she could name it. We had been talking about how nice daisies were, and how roses got more respect but in some ways I preferred the daisies - friendly, gregarious, long-lasting. And so she said “It’s ‘The Rose and the Daisy!’”.

Last week her kindergarten class had a field trip to a flower shop. read more...

My D&D campaign notes

I hesitate to admit it, but I played Dungeons & Dragons as a kid. A lot.

Now I’m playing it again, with my brother and his kids, and I am only slightly ashamed to say I’m enjoying it. A lot.

The attached page is a wiki-style log of some of our adventures. It’s mostly for the players’ use, but feel free to check it out if you’re interested.

The interface for the wiki implies that you can modify it, but you can’t save any changes.

Breakfast language

[Clara and Timothy are quietly eating clementines for breakfast.]

Clara (suddenly, pointing): F-HOLE!!

T: …

T: …

T: …

T: …What?!

C: Your clementine peel. It looks like a violin’s F-hole.

T: … Oh! … Yes… Yes, it does. Of course that’s what you meant…

'A' You're Adorable

I recorded this quickly for my daughter’s kindergarten class to practice with. We performed it together at the All-School Program on 12 Feb 2010. Lots of kids sang along! That’s Clara and Katherine shouting the alphabet. My good recording gear wasn’t working, so this is recorded on a cheap condenser mic and a Sound Blaster card.
