Me and Shelley Segal singing "Somebody That I Used To Know"

I bumped into Shelley Segal at American Atheists 2012 and the Reason Rally.  We wound up doing some singing in the hotel lobby.  The good people at jesusfajitafishsticks filmed it. In my defense, she’s got a stellar voice and it was early and I only barely knew the lyrics.  Also, singing B-flats as a baritone [Read More...]

Ear worm for all

Somebody that I used to know

Today was a crummy day.  In my job I wind up coming across a lot of people who are…just…fucking evil, and it’s my job to try and make those situations better.  Some days it gets even an experienced reluctant warrior down. Michaelyn sent me this video.  It made me smile.  Hooray for making crummy days [Read More...]

Robo's theme, because I love you

For all you old school nerds who remember one of the best RPGs of all-time, Chrono Trigger, this will make you smile. For all you non-gamers and youngsters who missed the golden age of console RPGs, you’ll still enjoy this happy melody, which they intermix cleverly with Rick Astley. [Read more...]

No Church In The Wild

On Tweetdeck, I follow mentions of “nonbeliever”, because I’m a glutton for punishment. I noticed that people kept tweeting, “What’s a god to a nonbeliever?” and wondered where that phrase came from. At first, I thought it must be some Christian pop rock song. However, the phrase came up way too frequently for that. It [Read More...]

Buy Rock Music, Help Atheism

Todd Stiefel, the man behind the Stiefel Freethought Foundation, is the philanthropist who provided the money for my position with the Secular Student Alliance.  He’s a great guy and apparently a musician (I wonder if he knows about my musical background…perhaps we can jam sometime). His band, Words Such As Burn, which is playing at [Read More...]

Music Box and Music Theory Lesson

For Friendsmas, Michaelyn gave me a music box.  Not just any music box, but one for which I could write my own music!  I have elected to write her a waltz and give the music box back to her (if you want to hear what I come up with, you’ll have to bug her :P). [Read More...]

On the Road Again: Musical Edition

Today I’m going to be on the road to St. Louis.  It will pretty much be seven hours in the car destroying my voice singing musicals and other stuff baritones have no right trying to sing.  Let’s all have fun. Rule:  All comments on this thread must be lines from a musical.  Bonus points if you [Read More...]
