Land 03:27
The sun beats down I can see many acres from where I stand Empty air Out in the open - but I am lost inside Distant hills Entire forests over my outstretched hand I almost hear The giant ocean as it gathers another tide How can I expect to learn About the wonder even with this killer view? Since everything I can behold In one moment and just like that the moment's through...

Benefits 03:18
All I know is I'm at home Throw a bone And wait for the gesture A long bitter lecture All I have is I am glad But call a cab I best not be driving But soon I'm arriving Oh the memories stack up And the words still hurt I cannot wait till they're gone But I'm standing on the earth And I taste the dirt I cannot hope - can move on All I breathe carries leaves And beliefs That time is a virtue And this job still suits you Oh the memories stack up And the words still hurt I cannot wait till they're gone But I'm standing on the earth And I taste the dirt I cannot hope - can move on...

about

I spent my whole birthday a few weeks ago hiding in a recording studio. Why? Sort of one part denial of aging, one part creative indulgence. The plan was to improvise/create a whole album. I achieved that goal, more or less. Everything herein was conceived, composed, performed and recorded within 10 hours on that date, including microphone placement and getting sounds. I do this sort of thing often by myself so it was definitely a pleasure to have somebody else dealing with gear and offering focus so I could just think and do (thanks, John!). I don't feel like I came up with anything earth shattering or insightful, but you still might enjoy some or all of it - here it is as a free gift to you. Pictures of my naked brain.

Disclaimer: Please note these are pretty much all first takes. Okay maybe a few second takes. Some people like it raw. And these particular mixes are a little rushed - I just wanted to get something on line for public consumption before this all grew stale. YMMV.
