Dude! We're Gettin' the Band Back Together...

So, I haven't posted in a coupla days because I'm trying to spend some of my non-existent down time making a little music with the spawnage. I just haven't had any time to do it lately... actually for the last year or so, and that's just wrong. I enjoy it, they enjoy it and I just have to get off my skinny ass and start recording, which is what I've been trying to do.

Today, Mr. Z and I worked on his new song "Guanaco Land Theme Song," about an orangutan named Mr. Guanaco, and the rest of his family. Mr. Guanaco has been in Mr. Z's arsenal for years now, and I'm glad he's finally going to be immortalized in song. A couple of years ago, the boy made a Mr. Guanaco t-shirt:

It was an awesome shirt. I love how Mr. Guanaco has a t-shirt with cutouts through which his orangunipples can poke. Anywhich, the song is going to be pretty great, I'm thinking. I'll post it when it's all finished.

Miss O and I are also working on a song about her imaginary friend, Meep Flop, who lives in the land of Meep, which is located beneath a trap-door in the laundry room. She dictated the lyrics to me, but getting her to sing them is a whole 'nother egg. If she knows that I want her to sing it, she'll refuse, so I have to somehow get her to suggest it herself. I'm telling ya, this kid is the contrarian to end all contrarians. Fucking drives me batty. It's going to be a spectacular song, if it ever does get recorded, though. We'll see.

Other than that, nothing much has happened. We went sledding again today. Miss O's pneumonia seems to be subsiding, so we thought, "Hey, let's throw her back out into the snow, eh?" She was much more chipper today, though. None of that listless whining like last weekend. Today her whining was full of vim and vigor.

So there you go, another post. Hopefully, I'll keep up with the daily postage this week, though the kids have only a half-day on Thursday and NO SCHOOL on Friday, so I'm not making any fucking promises. I swear to shit, I'm going to murder the goddamn school board in this town.

Oh well... off to Guanaco Land! Toodles.

A friend of a friend has a family band. Can't remember the name of it, but they were going to use "The Jamily" as their name but instead went for something lame (hence the reason I can't remember it). So, the point is, "The Jamily" is free and I think you should consider using it.

I am very eager to hear more music. I still put 'Wonder Woman Won' and 'Wash Closh' on mixes all the time.
