New Sitcom

Any thoughts on our new promo material for the Dysfunctional Romantics? I like it, but I’m nervous that it looks too much like a bus ad for a new Tween show on the Family Channel.

Scratch Track Tuesday – “It’s Time for the Real Thing”

Fake Baby Hannah - found on eBayMy friend Laura Brennan asked me to write a song for a web series written by her and her co-creators Rachel Leventhal and Jennifer Maisel called, “Faux Baby.” It’s a hilarious and twisted story of a couple uncertain whether they are ready to have a child yet. Their doctor suggests they get a fake baby first. Apparently this is not uncommon. Laura suggested I google it to see how real they are. It is freaking weird. People do this. People walk around with dolls and treat them as actual babies. And the baby dolls look amazingly real, but sadly dead, if you ask me. This song was written for the scene where the couple decides they’ve had enough of the fake baby and want a real one. Yes, it goes over the sex scene.

I tried to write something that was a play on words and a parallel to a break up where one person feels the other is no longer desirable. They have become an uninspiring, rigid bore. Oddly enough, I feel like I came up with an anthem for almost any presidential candidate this year.

Remember, it’s just a scratch track. But I did have some fun with harmonies.

I Wanna Be Your Intern (quick video)

There seems to be a political song competition on the front page of YouTube. My Hillary song wanted to be in the race. And she’s not quitting until it’s over. How about a vote?


Scratch Track Tuesdays – “Girls Are Crazy”

Girls are often complaining that they can’t find a nice guy or keep a boyfriend they like. And suddenly all guys are ‘assholes’. Well, I think I can safely speak for all guys with this musical response. Girls Are Crazy
