THANK YOU TO DANIEL FINN AND NICK RAMPERSAD FOR HELPING ME WITH THIS RECORD. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT THE TERRA COTTA IN ALFRED NEW YORK. THIS IS YOUR RECORD.

Daniel Finn plays on the song "Billy Joel."

Nick is on the song "Flying Pizza."

Meghan is doing vocals on "Astoria."

ALSO THANK YOU BRAD KERR AKA ROCKET PUNCH. I COVERED YOUR SONG POORLY. Pink Cashmere was written by Brad.

ALSO SHOUTOUT TO SWEARING AT MOTORISTS. FLYING PIZZA WAS WRITTEN BY THEM. But it's such a great song I had to include it.

SHOUTOUT TO RAPTORCLAW AND DERMUS.

Daniel Finn passed away a day after I wrote the song Winnie Cooper. Nikki and I played it at his tribute night that week at the Terra Cotta and the video is on youtube. This record would not have been possible without him.

Thank you to Timmy Morrissey / 2 Mill House.

Thank you Dan Morrissey for the encouragement to go through with this record.

Thank you Michael McDowell for giving me a Roland Juno that is used throughout this record.

Shoutout to Golden Boy!

Thank you Nikki Klepper, Helene, Berti, Kathleen, Kristina, Mariah, whole crew in Alfred.

It's been almost 4 years or so since I did this record. I was just going to put up the "hits" but I think the whole thing remains an interesting listen, and I hope you agree.

PEACH COLORED VINYL 12" COMING SOON.

Track Name: I believe in Astrology.
My affinity for Astrology has suddenly gotten the best of me. I’m superstitious, with my feet up over bridges driving in my VW. bridges I’m burning! The relationships aren’t working! They're not working! Because the Leo didn’t last, the Pisces I threw back. The Capricuarius just turned to crap. The Virgos were too shy. The Gemini had a guy on the side, it was her husband, who was actually really nice: we hung out sometimes... So lord, send me someone from above, to try out just this once. How about a Sagittarius? I believe in the stars. I believe in the Holy Ghost. I believe in true love. I believe I love you the most!
Track Name: Winnie Cooper
There's no chariot to carry me. No boy will ever marry me. I'm nothing like you've ever seen before. And you'll push your red Schwinn as we take the long way home again, and we'll talk about what it's like to be young and human and sensitive. We're all racing toward a nonexistent ending. We're standoffish but we're also very friendly. I'm going to go; you can spend some time with Paul. We keep growing up by we never grow up at all.
Track Name: Astoria
I can't believe I've taken three connecting trains, and the cross town shuttle at Grand Central Station, just to leave me getting dumped on your front door. I'll hail a cab if I can at this time of night. In the black backseat, I'll be alright. I'm going back home to Astoria. I'm going out with my cute coworker from Williamsburg.
Track Name: Torture
If we could switch our brains into each others' bodies would you rather torture you or would you torture me? I was at a loss for a reply. I just sighed. It was awkward. Joe apologized.
Track Name: Pink Cashmere (Rocket Punch cover)
My days are epic poems in which nothing really happens.
Track Name: Flying Pizza (Featuring BesNick)
How's your mom???

NICK!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: A song for you
This song is written about Alfred, New York. Shoutout to the Dismemberment Plan. Once, I saw them play in Alfred. About 8 years later I moved to Alfred. Incidentally, this song sounds like the Dismemberment Plan.

I'll show you the glass that I have blown. I'll show you the pots that I have thrown.

After we hang out all day, you'll see me in your sleep. You'll see me when you close your eyes and dream.
Track Name: Billy Joel
She listens to Taylor Swift. I listen to Elliott Smith. She wears canvas Vans to my house in the snow. She sang me Billy Joel.
Track Name: I never see you around when I'm awake.
Obviously I got this joke from The Promise Ring. Nothing Feels Good? How nothing feels?
Track Name: Onesie and the Tutus
Onesie and the Tutus were the best band around. I saw them play once in the industrial section of town. There were not three of them like the name would imply. It was just some sort of cute girl, some instruments and some guy. They played pop music, often out of key. They wrote song about their friends and they covered The Softies.

He did the dishes while she read aloud. They got drunk on Mickey's in the basement of her house. She played the Casio, and he played my guitar. When they got hungry they'd go get food from out of the carts.

I heard later they broke up. I heard he sold the drum kit. I heard he sold it on Craigslist. I heard he no longer plays any music.

For one hot minute, they were my favorite band. I kept their CDR next to Belle and Sebastian. I had that show's flyer taped up on my fridge, until I came home drunk one night and it accidentally ripped.

And often when it's late and I am walking home I hum their songs to myself and this is how they go.
