Must Be Tuesday
Do you have "This is Where I Want To Be" posted up somewhere?

Hi, thank you so much for asking! I haven’t posted the song in its entirety anywhere. It’s available on iTunes at this link though. I will put it up on my web site soon! (I should have time this weekend.) Thank you for getting in touch!

I’m trying to write a coherent song in time for the songwriters’ circle tonight. I may have accidentally written a melody that is WAY TOO SAD in minor key, and WAY TOO HAPPY in major key, whoops?

I’m going to try adding happy chords to the minor key version and see if that fixes it lol. Wish me luck!

NEW VIDEO: “Getting Intimate With Darren Criss

Thanks for the amazing month of support, y’all. 20 collaborations, which you can check out HERE. If you like this one, push REBLOG. I’m stalking and following people who do!

OMG! This is hilarious and adorable! LOL I feel that I require a gif of the bit when Tyler says “I don’t know what came over me” and Darren looks perfectly smug and says “Oh I think I do. Have you SEEN those photos?” :D

This is reminding me that I was thinking recently I should maybe rerecord Stop Being So Fucking Awesome Darren Criss now that I’ve transitioned and my voice is like an octave deeper. Hmm…

I didn’t do any music practice yesterday, but I made up for it today! I figured out a couple three chord songs to bring to a guitar workshop I’m helping with tomorrow for Not Enough Fest. (You Are My Sunshine and Royals by Lorde have exactly the same chords!)

I also practiced 11 of my own songs on the guitar. (Seven Earthly Virtues, Not on the Same Page, The Coming Out Song, My Heart is a Spool of Thread, Closing the Mine, Brash and Free, Stop Being so Fucking Awesome Darren Criss, This is Where I Wanna Be, I’ll Save My Last Rifle Round for You, Leave a Message Anyway, and Cover Me I’m Going In.) Yay! :D

I have a half hour set at Bohemia on Tuesday! I think I’ll be on between 8 and 10pm but the set list is not set in stone. Cover is by donation ($5 suggested). Also note that if you Google Bohemia you might get their old address. The current address is 10217 97 Street, Edmonton. I’ll be playing old and new songs, some funny ones and some serious ones. I’m excited!

Yesterday I practiced two guitar songs (Seven Earthly Virtues, My Heart is a spool of Thread) and today I practiced three (The Coming Out Song, Not on the Same Page, Closing the Mine). :D

I practiced four songs on the guitar (Leave a Message Anyway, Cover Me I’m Going In, I’ll Save My Last Rifle Round For You, Stop Being So Fucking Awesome Darren Criss) and one on the piano (The One I Loved When I Was Young). Yay!

The reason I had time to do that is: I got all ready to go swimming and was feeling pretty proud of myself for being motivated enough to do it, but after five minutes of swimming the caretaker of my building kicked me out because apparently she cleans the pool on Tuesday mornings. I was pretty grouchy about it at first but it turned out well in the end!

I practiced Brash and Free on the guitar. I hope to do something bigger in the next few days, like practicing a whole half hour set or editing a recorded song. :)

This is my showing off post. ;) I finally got 100% on one of those nations of the world quizzes! :D This one is on JetPunk. This has taken me like 2.5 months heh, and I’m pretty pleased with myself. :D
