April 14th “Leave it to My Furry Friends”

Well, it only took about two weeks after getting a new puppy to start writing songs about it.  I’ve refrained so far because something else has always popped into my head thus far.  That is until today.   “Leave it to My Furry Friends” ponders the reason why Man is not Man’s best friend.

Hear’s a picture of my inspirations for this song.

Jan. 5th “Financial Planning for Dogs

This song stems from hourly listens to NPR all day.

I started a different song but this insane ‘avant gangsta garde’ piece just popped out.  I guess working in the cold will pull that right out of ya.

I had just thought of ‘Financial Planning for Dogs’ after misreading a yahoo ad.   Then shortly thereafter, Adair and I started talking about giving dogs loans.   Hilarious interjection ensued as you can imagine.

That’s where the tag line “Don’t give that dog a bone, give that dog a loan” came from.
