My second article for Degenerate News just got published. Please click through and show some love for the band The Two Tens.
Thanks to those who read my Regrettes article yesterday. I’m still writing for Geeks of Doom as well. Here is my most recent article on designer, dancer and rock star Kelly Maglia. Hope you enjoy!
New year, new gig! I’m pretty excited about writing for this new online magazine, Degenerate News. Here is the first article I wrote for them. The members of The Regrettes actually all went to rock school with my son and are now signed to Warner Brothers so it’s pretty exciting. They also happen to be a great band.
Please take the time to read my review or at least click through to show there is readership, ha, ha! It will look good for me! Thanks! And let me know what you think of The Regrettes and the article.
I tried to get there early
So I wouldn’t have to race
For the task nearly impossible
To find a parking space
For surely I’d be lucky if
I happened to have found
A spot twas even blocks away
The hottest club in town
My wond’ring eyes saw such a sight
They were likely to meet
A spot there that did wait for me
And right across the street
No sign was reading ‘tow away
No standing, loading only’
And so I pulled my car right up
To make it far less lonely
But once I pulled in not enough
To just leave for the club
I had to sit there to impress
On every passing schlub
Of what would be my luck that night
A feat much more than meager
And did I mention I’d no need
To feed the parking meter?
And as I sat there basking
In the space that I had took
I thought it best to take a pic
And post it on Facebook
So all my friends could envy me
And have it in their sights
Of all the luck that I was having
On that weekend night
But finally I had to go
So out the car I dragged
But ‘fore I made it to the club
I stopped off and I bragged
To every bouncer, every door girl
All that I did meet
Of how I got to get a spot
Just right across the street
And finally I got in the club
A sight that made me sober
To find the band I came to see
Was now completely over
But it was just a momentary
Downer, no real grieving
I just got back into my car
And now I’m never leaving.
On an endless quest for blatant self promotion, I decided to add this link. It’s an interview on Metal Meat with The CheeseBergens. I think it’s really quite funny, especially the part where he rags on us for being old, ha, ha! Anyway, those of you who have the energy to follow the link, can (hopefully) enjoy a fun read.
Oh Ouija board oh Ouija board
Not one to doubt your vision
Well rubbed with cloth the planchette notes
Of other realms or friction
To spell out words like AGNTHM
Or STRIMPH there is no telling
Interpretations seal the deal
And no account for spelling
For I suspect in afterlife
There’s really little mind
For any such* except perhaps
The spiritual kind
We tried to summon Lemmy but
In keeping our mind open
When the planchette spelled out 5 T H
We just went with Beethoven
But while many will doubt I guess
We’ll never truly know
If the gate to hell’s a cardboard toy
Created by Hasbro
*Refers to the double meaning of spelling, as in the grammatical kind, vs. the casting of spells
There really ain’t no other way I like to grill it
When I get some frozen patties in my skillet
I’m down to eat a salad or scarf up grease
But there’s just one way to serve it that’s gonna please
I don’t care if it’s in slices or an easy squeeze
Just do it- but do it with cheese!
Now you might say your lactose intolerant
But I say just suck it up or you can go get bent
Cause if your tummy hurts then I say “oh please!”
Go wash it down with Tums or some anti freeze
Theres just one way to serve it that’s gonna please
Just do it – but do it with cheese!
When they see me comin’ they don’t need to guess
If I want some cheese with that cause the answer is yes
I need the gooey stuff and that’s for sure
And I don’t care if it’s costing me 50 cents more
Cheese is the stuff of life and you can’t refute
If you think you’re gaining weight then stop eating fruit
Cause life is too short to sweat the calories
So you best start clogging up all those arteries
Live fast and die of cardiovascular disease
Just do it – but do it with cheese!
Hello friends! I’m sure you were all waiting with bated breath for this last installment of our Three Songs In Three Days Campaign. Fun factoid!! Due to some technical issues this song almost was not released today!!! Lucky for you, we had a last minute edit that saved the day. I know, imagine you, all bummed out for the weekend because you were waiting for this song and couldn’t be sure if you would ever hear it!!
Well, here it is. This one was published before as a poem but now has music added, so PLEASE LISTEN!! Come on people, I can tell how many of you are listening and it’s a lot more than those who are stopping by to like or comment…although the fact that you are enjoying the lyrics is appreciated as well….but we work hard on this stuff!! This is another track with my daughter on vocals and you know she’s a newbie at this so all feedback is appreciated, especially the good kind!! Okay, without further ado, The CheeseBergens’ lifelong motto…Do It With Cheese!
