I don’t consider myself as funny as I do just a smart ass, but I tried to write a song about the ever popular topic of flatulence. I wrote a song called iFarted and although I haven’t played in it some time, I decided to take the easy route and not write or learn something to just do what I have. I did forget to practice the song beforehand but I’ve been really busy with a few other projects and I also like to keep my word so I stayed focused on the upcoming gig and then to another project where I’m co-writing with someone and just didn’t prioritize any time to practice the song. Now that I have my excuse for slop out of the way… 🙂
I’ve been going to Hotel Utah’s open mic on and off for a while now but only recently started to attend every week, about 6 -7 weeks ago. I like this place – it’s right in my backyard and this open mic, as many others, has its own unique blend of performers and atmosphere. The Utah at my place of work, more commonly known as The Ute, is a popular place for my fellow employees to celebrate things worthy of drink! To that we recognize important company milestones; employee departures; the end of tough weeks; or for a big what the hell – The Ute is the place we go. So I’ve been there’s countless times not just for regular beer consumption but for the open mic. I first played there in September of 2010 when I was just a burgeoning artist and wanting to whip out my first few completed songs and test them.
