this song is for brennan. not really because i wrote it with him in mind, but more because it's short. under 3 minutes short.

the song is called escondido

i really do need to go to california. i keep wanting to put californian names in songs.

i gave in this time. but at least it's short ;-)

the plan.. well, i don't know about inappropriate punctuation, but a song has been hatched out of the day that allowed me to sit on the porch and play guitar...

back when i was in "five foot fungus", i wanted to call the band "quicksandbox". failing that, it would be the name of our album... or something.

it's been awhile, and the idea has faded a bit, but today it got converted, finally, into a song

ah yes, this time it is one Mr. Victor Friedman that has bestowed upon us a list of spam poetry words. and i feel haiku.

if you've got nothing better to do, write some of your own.

it makes me happy when it's nice enough to play guitar outside.

So, in the fine tradition of naming songs for canadian provinces: ontario

Just got British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec to go, and that's if territories don't count.

Then I can start on States... and ... hmm. This is going to take a lot of time. Maybe I'll stop here.

In unrelated news, I wonder why I EVER eat fast food. I made baked salmon with dill and rosemary and ginger garlic sauteed green beans in oh, 15 minutes the other day. I need to cook more often.

Happy birthday to my sister. It was officially yesterday but only because I got around to writing this at 2:40 in the morning.

and finally, i looked at this: _/"\_ a few days ago and decided it might very well be naughty.

so there you go.

OK. As some of you may know from visits to college perk, I've got a CD called Canadian Love Council that I'm selling for $6.

I really have no other distribution right now, but if you want one, e-mail me dsz@danzimmerman.com and I'll see what we can do.

It's got 11 songs, some overlap with demo # n, but it's been tweaked a bit to hang together better as an album. It has a new version of sPook on it too. I still want to keep stuff up online, it's just that some people expressed interest in buying a disc. So there you go.


My birthday is on Sunday. Give me presents!

I'll be old.

Good then.
