What do you do when a complete stranger falls down right in front of you and you want to laugh but you also don’t want to hurt their feelings. Or someone does or says something really embarrassing that they wish they could take back because it made everybody laugh.
That’s what “Kind of Funny, But Not Really” is about. What do you do when you’re really embarrassed except laugh along with everybody. Otherwise you’re just going to be pissed and then nothing will make you feel better.
America’s Funniest Home Videos created a monster I guess.
I went old school today and actually wrote in an old notebook of mine instead of on the computer. What a trip to put pen to pad without actually touching my iPhone.
I found one of my little old carry arounds and as I sat down at the piano to write tonight a seperate page fell out.
Part of it turned into “Pep Talk”, I was feeling the key of F all day and the words seemed rather Key of F-like. The song reminds me of all the old piano stuff I used to do and have gotten away from. It’s awesome to be frequently writing again, even after working all day.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
