Oh, Let’s Just Talk For Awhile

I was thinking about this the other day, and I was all like, “Man, you really put the “log” in Blogging!” Actually, that can’t be right. I put the “Blo” in Blogging? No, that’s obviously wrong. The “Gin”? Well I don’t really like gin, so that wasn’t it. The “Bloggi”? What does that even mean? Is that the plural of Blog? Where am I, and what am I doing for lunch? I think the point of what I was trying to say is that I put something into Blogging, but even that is getting further and further from the truth. Not sure where I was going with that. Read the next paragraph.

As you may or may not know, I have been covertly working on an album of so-called “music,” despite having no musical talent whatsoever. Don’t worry, I’m not going to sing or rap or anything, that would be a true American Tragedy. It’s all instrumental. For the most part. On second thought, I’m pretty good at singing. And rapping. Maybe that will be the next one. But probably not.  But anyhoo, I’ve been running on a steady diet of Government Cheese, plucky Minnesotan gumption, and my greatest ally–my abnormally astute brain. It is a veritable field of fertility in there. It’s like every autumn, some hillbilly on a tractor goes in there, spreads some horse manure around (my Mom tells me that is the best kind), lets it ferment, and comes back in the spring to plant the seeds that eventually take root and mature into this very Blog. Fascinating, no? Well, you big galoot, some of that horse-poopy mojo got directed into the creation of so far, seven songs, and one video. But don’t worry, there will be a video for every song, and possibly even a short story to accompany that. Or maybe I’ll just write a book. Man, look how talented I am! I can honestly do it all. Did I mention that I used to be really good at drawing?! Maybe I’ll take that up again too. And not to toot my own horn here, but a lot of people compliment me on my penmanship. It’s small, elegant, and for the most part, let’s just say it gets the job done.  I’m also ambidextrous! Could I possibly have any more talents? The answer is no, I can’t. That is about all I can do.

Well, here’s the first video. It was for a class. My Dad asked me what it was supposed to mean, and I wish I could say that it represents the Duality of Man or something cool like that, but it is honestly just some shots of Minneapolis groovin’ along with the tune. Plus, it’s got a duck in it!
