january 21, 2011 // sounds like a cat in heat..

In an effort to tap into my musical side (whether or not such a thing exists in me is questionable..you'll understand why after watching the video below), I purchased a ukulele a few months ago.

The night of my frightening drive to Jackson Hole, WY, I stayed over in a fabulously plush, newly renovated Motel 6 (seriously.. it was SO NICE). I wasn't tired after checking in.. probably the fault of the excessive amount of adrenaline that had pumped into my system during the drive.. so, I decided to do what any reasonable 25 year old would have done in my situation. I turned off the television, fixed my hair and made a music video in my hotel bathroom.

Now, I'm not promising much from this video. In fact, I won't be the least bit offended if you stop it 3.2 seconds in, close your laptop and then proceed to throw it across the room in a violent fit of rage.. In fact, I'd expect such a response. I wanted to put the video up here as a challenge to myself. I'll be the first to admit that I don't have the voice of Josh Groban (which is probably a good thing because then I'd sing like one handsome devil of a man).. but I wanted to try to put myself out there musically. Hey, not all heartfelt singers have great voices, right?? (Think about Daniel Johnston!)

So, without further adieu.. my musical debut!

  1. Haha, that was very entertaining! There are other artists out there who aren't blessed vocally but they make up for it in a fun performance, like yourself! :)

    I have zero musical abilities. Although I am trying to play the harmonica. It seems like the kind of instrument the cool guy in the background of every band plays. I'm down with being the cool guy in the background.


Thanks for your comments! Each and every one means so much!
