A Song

It’s been awhile since I posted on this blog. I was talking to Adam R and he pointed out that blogging is kind of on the way out. Which makes me nostalgic for all the blogging I was doing way back in 2011. Maybe the future is the past and I’ll just start posting whatever here? Here is a song I wrote with my friend Tom. It starts in the middle and kind of gets disheveled. We don’t really practice. It is about a Dwarf Fortress. It is called Dwarf Fortress. The final two minutes really reiterate this.

Here is the same song with Tom messing around on an effects pedal.

I should also note that somewhere in me, I’ve got a really great post about the Hunger Strike and the DC OWS movement. Need this break to last longer…I will also very soon suggest you buy my new book. Get ready for that.
