Alison

This great song by Elvis Costello has been an earworm for me lately, so I decided to lay it down. Vocal & guitar by Addie Stan.

Throw It Away

A little homemade recording of my cover of a composition by the late, great Abbey Lincoln. I used to play this song a lot, and then stopped for some reason. I'm reclaiming it as my theme for the New Year -- especially as I sit surrounded by file boxes filled with I don't know what.

I'm just learning to do percussion, so this was a bit of an experiment.

Sometimes I’m Happy

The ukulele really has the right attitude for playing show tunes from the 1920s, dontcha think? I actually learned to play the uke from a book my father had written by the guy who played uke and banjo in the Paul Whiteman Orchestra. This ditty was written in 1927 by Vincent Youmans (music) and Irving Caesar (lyrics). I consider it an anthem for codependency.

This version:

I Wish You Love

Jammin' with some friends at Potters House in DC. Tim Caggiano is on the piano, and a dude name Spencer, who I just met that night, is on the clarinet. I'm the one singing.

Two weeks after the murder of Dr. George Tiller, a gynecologist who provided late-term abortions, anti-abortion extremist Missy Smith called for another doctor, LeRoy Carhart, to meet a similar fate.

During his appearance at the Americans for Prosperity RightOnline conference in Pittsburgh, August 15, Joe the Plumber said that in the old days, politicians would have been "taken behind the woodshed and slapped upside the head a couple times." But, he said, "I don't advocate violence."
