I hear people think you're paranoid

New video, with a cameo from Tommy Fox filmed and edited by Gordy Higgins. Paranoid is usually played a bit slower and heavier, with indistinguishable lyrics. I tried to make it a bit more upbeat with lyrics you can understand. A happy sound with sad lyrics, that's an example of juxtaposition right?

I also want to draw your attention to this, so that you can see my lack of acting skills.

Advice: How to read a blog

Well done so far, you're on track. The first step is one you've clearly conquered, finding the blog. In case it was an accident the easiest way is to search in a search engine like google for a blog that suits your interests, if you have any. Next is to read the words on the blog site, which you seem to be doing, again, well done and keep it up! What do you do when you're done though, this one is new so you'll run out of words to read pretty quickly...   You have some options here. It could require some thought on your part *gasp*. First of all you could give some sort of feedback, authors of blogs love feedback. Express whatever opinion you have, and if it related to the post you are commenting on that's a bonus. If you take this option you can either simply leave one comment and leave it at that, or you could have a full blown discussion about something with another commenter. The next action you could take upon completion of reading the blog is to repeat the process, blogger has a great "next blog" button to facilitate this. Alternatively you can just stop browsing the internet, you could switch your computer off and have a picnic, you could throw your computer away and become a hippy, or you could blow your computer up and become a guns rights activist. Please don't though, I'll be lonely.

Hit Me Baby One More Time

I definitely had too much fun making this video, hopefully you like it as much as I do. I always enjoy playing that song, high energy.
In other news I've decided to play two songs at a small local event with my father, I'll play ukulele and he'll provide vocal. He's a much better singer than me. I want to do Guitar Man by Bread and Kiss From a Rose by Seal. Hopefully I'll be able to get a video of it. I'm not even sure when the thing is...

Recording sessions

I was in Queensland for a week, whilst I was there not enjoying the beach (because it was too dirty) I recorded some songs. The first fruits of those labours is up for your enjoyment: Imagine! Yes, I actually did drink all that Dr Pepper! I did feel somewhat ill afterwards but that's ok. Gordy produced the it. Did production...was the producer. I don't know, whatever. Enjoy.

Hit Me Baby One More Time

Here's me playing Britney Spears' song Hit Me Baby One More Time a while ago. It was on a cheap ukulele and recorded on an iphone, so I'm going to upload an updated version which will have a much better ukulele some time.
