With all this talk of comparing our current economic woes to The great depression, I've been thinking all week, "man I gotta write a song about this "new Great Depression" until I remembered "Oh yeah I did already."

my older daughter is a bit behind in what her teachers expect from her this year, so we spent tonight working with and reviewing stuff she is short on. She's flying headlong into tween-teen-ager-dom, and I badger her about cleaning her room and doing her chores. She is playing two sports as well as trying to hang out and be a kid, which means she really likes to spend copious amounts of time laying sedate in front of old episodes of Veronica Mars, as is the wont of her age.

Here's a version of the song I wrote a while back:
I'd like either a recording studio or to take a class in audio engineering. I can never quite get them to sound like I hear it. Either way it's out of the way now.
Sorry I've not posted much lately, I've been working quite a bit. I should have some comics done soon, for a couple anthologies.

From The Moth:
Thanks to all of you who've sent me birthday wishes. I've been thinking about legacy and heirlooms and this story seems fitting because it seeps with the ravages that old families do.

Did this mural last week:
Unfortunately, I couldn't get a decent picture of the ceiling, which is the Rebel force approaching the Death Star in the battle of Endor (you can see a sliver of Endor in the above pic).

It's wa-ay rough, and I'll catch shit if the guys heard I uploaded it, but we spent a decent part of the day recording and here's a rough cut of some new HangDog:
It needs some fantastic mandolin (by robbie) and a guitar lick he's got worked out, but for a rough, it's pretty decent.
