"Ira Glass on Making It" - CLICK HERE TO WATCH VIDEO

No music tonight. Just a moment of inspiration I stumbled upon looking up presentation tips for a meeting I have tomorrow.

Hear, hear Mr. Glass.

Week 2/Song 2 - Somebody Knows

"Somebody Knows" - CLICK HERE TO PLAY

One of the great privileges of living in Florida, other than copious amounts of sunshine and half-naked girls, is that you can pretty much see the shuttle launch from anywhere. I am at a particular advantage as I am 20 stories up. I was actually able to watch it rise into orbit until the Earth's rotation pulled it down into the layer of smog that covers Tampa every evening.

So this makes song number two. It might stick, though I'm not convinced yet. I was able to work my first lead guitar part in, which was a challenge in and of itself. Still getting comfortable with the idea of using a mic, and singing for that matter.

Baby steps, baby steps . . .
