A Potpourri of Noise

Yes, that’s the title we’ve settled on: “A Potpourri of Noise”

Back when I started recording songs and putting them up on the blog, some delusonal folk requested a CD of them. Me being me, I couldn’t just slap a song or two on a piece of plastic and mail it to them. Hell no! I had to make a big production out of it. So, finally, with just a couple of weeks to spare, my New Year’s Resolution is almost ready. I’ve finished re-mixing (and re-recording parts of) some of the earlier songs, and I’m just waiting on cover art by my evil twin sister, that most brantastic of brans, to arrive in the mail (I’ve seen the original pencil sketch and it’s awesome).

I may also wait to finish a version of “Staring At The Sun” by the Offspring that will feature my son, Whiny the Elder (who is currently struck with laryngitis) and a song with my bestest friend. But in any case, it’s close enough to find out how many of the things I need to burn.

If you would like me to send you a CD, please e-mail your address to me at solonor AT gmail DOT com.

It’s been building up for four years. Four years twenty years of excuses. I don’t have the equipment. I don’t have the money. I don’t have the time. I can’t sing. I can’t write songs. It’s gotta be perfect. But somehow, I finally got over all that crap, and it’s mostly thanks to you. I don’t think I’d be daring to do this without your general lack of disgust. Thank you.

Besides my long-suffering spouse (who’s had to listen to me whine about this for 18 years), I especially want to thank my most ardent supporters: the inspiringly awesome MJ, my other bestest friend, Ric the Schmuck, Domino, Cableman, JustAGirl, NotSoRedMenace, Bitter Kat, JadedJu, Busy Mom, Jools, Michele, Somewhat, PromoGuy, Karan, Sibeal, Jenni, Linkmeister, Kat, JR, Scott, and anyone else who’s encouraged this foolishness.

    Oooo gotta get me one of those! Do we get your picture on the cover and an autograph?

  2. bitterkat says:

    Foolishness must be encouraged. Especially if it’s creative foolishness.

  3. Ric The Schmuck says:

    I’ve always been inspired by your foolishness.

    Yes, I want one.

  4. MJ says:

    Excellent! Sign me up. Now I can say “I knew ya when…” my brother.

  5. domino says:

    Great Job, I’m looking forward to the CD very much. In fact you have inspired me to, well to think about getting off my own butt too. At least I’m thinking about it.

    (cover art is, at this very moment, on its merry way via USPS to your strange, southern realms! and, if it isn’t already assumed, i’d like a disc too, please! 🙂

  7. Karan says:

    Yahoo!!! I’m sending my address now…don’t forget the autograph…it’s worth more on EBay with that little addition!

  8. Linkmeister says:

    Er, what the hell did I have to do with it (other than not sneering and falling over in helpless dismay, I mean)?

    But I’d love a bootleg copy.

  9. Somewhat says:

    Yay! I knew I spent yesterday fixing the sound on my computer for a reason 😀

  10. Cableman says:

    I already have all the songs, but for sure I’m going to want a Collector’s Edition CD. 🙂
    I’ve got the printing presses set up and ready to roll for the massive CD cover production run…

  11. Solonor says:

    Ah! But you DON’T have all the songs! No one does. I haven’t posted them all. Plus, I re-mixed and re-recorded a couple. So, it’s the Director’s Cut Extended Collector’s Edition (sans cool figurine).

    Are your CD’s available for limited release in Australia? Or are they strictly USA bound CD’s?
