Volcano by JoFranna

It has been awhile boys and girls.
Summertime came and almost went.
Lots of things happened to the people of the world.

Also... JoFranna is releasing an EP and celebrating with a performance at the
Sidewalk Cafe in New York City on September 1st (09012010). Crazy things will happen, like I might remember all the words to Coney Island.

More things to come in a shorter interval of time then before:

Supersonic Man

Second song from 'JoFranna'?! What's our name...I'm not sure yet.
All I know is that we are really good at rapping together.

Science Fair Face by Preston

This is a song by Preston Spurlock. It is amazing.
And the more listens you get out of it the better it gets.

Here is my visual tribute to the song.

Tough Girls

This is the first video and song from a new hit rap group based in Brooklyn, New York.
They don't have a name. The members are Joanna Kelly and myself.
Joanna is a beast on the beats. I just know how to fight.

Not true.

Down By The Shore

This is part of my practice singing over the drums series. It's like chewing gum and whistling at the same time.

This video was really fun to make actually. I have no idea what I am doing nearly all of the time, but an end product happens anyway.

Killer on the Run

This song is mostly Austin. But I was there so I take partial credit.
The audio sounds a bit fuzzed out... but you know... imperfection is a good way to live life.

Park Song

Another week. Another song.
This song was started on March 25, 2008. It was finished today. It was born when Austin and I were eating lunch in Bryant Park and thought it would be a good idea to quit our lives and go to Tennessee and become country music stars. We also decided to co-author a novel that day. We also have a pilot cooking show under our belts that we have never seen and actually no one has ever seen. We are really good at ideas.

In a way... this song sums up a lot about our friendship.... we are building up a penny collection to reach our dreams.

This was super fun to make and this kind of collaboration is exactly why I started this whole project. I really love the idea of connecting to the people in your life through music. And no lack of ability or know-how can stop that. Proof is in the poorly crafted music video above.

woah...I dropped the ball

It's pretty impressive how quickly I dropped the ball on this project.
But in 2010 I picked up the ball again. I found it under the couch. Covered in dust and cat hair.

I made this song for a silly contest at my college. You have to pick out an art piece from their collection, get inspired by it, and spit some kind of art work back. This is my dribble.

This dude Xu Bing was sent by the Chinese government on a rustification program where he had to learn to farm. While there he made a wood print of a vegetable field. This was considered a radical piece of art because it didn't say anything about how great the Chinese Government was.

The song is called: The government saw politics, Xu Bing saw a farm

I have noticed that most of the creations I make on my own sound really next song will sound peppier. Oh, and this whole thing was made on a guitar with a broken G-string and I used a drum stick as a slide.
