I WRITE THE SONGS... UM, SONG

alt.mania album cover
Buy this CD. Now.
My friend Sean Altman, the former frontman of Rockapella (those guys on Carmen Sandiego, remember?) has released his second solo album, alt.mania. It's not a cappella; quite the contrary -- it's wry, Beatlesque power-pop in full instrumental glory.
 
One of the album's 15 pop gems is Unworthy, a song he and I wrote together. So go make a Real Songwriter out of me by buying it here.
 
 
BEATBOXING: AN ALIEN LANGUAGE?
 
May 24, 2002
 
Saw the trailer for Men In Black II this week. One scene features Will Smith making contact with an alien (disguised as a postal worker) in his native language -- beatboxing! The alien is played by none other than Biz Markie.
 
Beatboxing as an alien language. I like that.
