that thing I mentioned yesterday – “heroes who died”

20 Mar

As I mentioned yesterday, while out at BFGCon last weekend, I shared a couple of songwriting exercises with Comedy Rock Star Mikey Mason over a couple of beers. One of the things I played for him was a little ditty I knocked out last summer, not long after Avengers: Infinity War came out; a parody of the Jim Carroll Band’s “People Who Died”, about all the heroes who got dusted in The Snappening™. Mikey dug it, and suggested I submit it to The Funny Music Project, currently run by nerdcore rapper Devo Spice (and originally created by my buddy Rob Balder back in the day); full of funny tunes that end up on the Doctor Demento Show and all that.

Well, I wasn’t entirely happy with the recording (I don’t have a punk voice, for one, but the guitar solo is pretty dope), and I lost the drum track in the great laptop-pissed-on-by-a-cat incident a few months back anyway, so I couldn’t just re-do the vocal track even if I wanted to. Also, I’m not really a professional musician, even if I do get paid to play occasionally, so I didn’t submit to the main site or anything. The FuMP does, however, do a kind of minor league thing, known as The Sideshow, so I thought, what the hell, I’ll toss my MP3 at them and see what happens.

In any case, it got posted this morning, and people are saying nice things about it on social media. I would be remiss if I didn’t share it here (go ahead and click the logo):

Anyway, that was kind of a cool thing, certainly something I can brag about from the stage tonight at open mic.
