Brooklyn Beta! This was day one. I left around 7pm to come make this song. I got to my studio around 7:30. I had a lot of material to work with, obviously! When it came time to sing/film my vocal take, I realized I left my nice Panasonic gh2 at home! By this time, it was already about 10:30, so I said, "Screw it!" and I jankily filmed with my iPhone. Hence the visual quality. Then Final Cut was giving me a bunch of trouble, blah blah blah long story short, it's now 11:45 and I'm exhausted. And I have to be back at the conference tomorrow at 9am. Better go get some sleep.

Also: I'm playing a song or two tomorrow at the end of the day, as part of my friend Patti's Puppy Party. She has a start up called Puppy Stream. Go check it out!

Hello Brooklyn Beta
You make the apps and dingleberry things
But you also work on the cosmic stuff that matter

But what matters?
Well it's Alex Paynes birthday
He worked on Twitter
And also Simple
And now he's finding other stuff to do that matters

Aaron James Draplin has been crying a lot
He bought his parents a saturn
A tiny pinkie nail changed his life
And now he keeps his color pallet
clean

And Kyle Neath says the objects all around me
Affect the songs I make
And my tiny basement studio
Where I write my songs
Is crammed full of junk
I wonder what that means

Brooklyn Brooklyn
Brooklyn Beta
Your speaker list and audience are wholly made of
People making things that they love


Ben Purrought
Speaks right from his heart
He tried and failed and he took a lot of blame
Through pride and fear and stubbornness
And an unconscious unwillingness
To see any other path when it mattered the most
But he learned
And now he'll do something amazing
I know he will



Whisper don't yell
Whisper don't yell


When Farmer John calls
Do the fucking job
