"Sunday Dub"

Instruments: Guitar, Drums, Bass, Organ

Feel: Grooving, Relaxed, Mysterious

This was written for a sneaky-yet-cool scene. The kind where our main character is trailing a subject to find out where they get the amazing cheese they serve at their restaurant. There's a bunch of bits where the paranoid restauranteur turns around unexpectedly and Private Detective Alice Winterbottom has to duck behind dumpsters, or spin around casually pretending to be on a phone call, or hide behind a watermelon at the fruit stand.

Hey, yo - welcome to the sic'est grammar podcast on the planet, where your future will have been perfectly continuous. I can't really think up much more in the realm of grammar jokes without going to the "dangling participle". And that's not happening.

Columbus, Ohio - Where blank canvasses become full lives! Visit Columbus on your next getaway! Coffee shops, restaurants, and many seasonal festivals provide a rich backdrop to help make your life seem slightly less desperate. Columbus, Ohio: We have a river!

You know what, I honestly don't know what I was thinking here. This is one of those "throw things at the wall and see if it works" kinds of pieces. It would have been completely uninteresting were it not for the Uilleann Pipes. Not a lot of music out there for bagpipes and electric piano. Consider the void filled!

Musical wallpaper! You might think that's a bad thing, but it quite useful for playing under interviews, or during countdowns, or in really hip cafes where you can get an Americano (coffee) or an Americano (Campari+vermouth cocktail). Life Pro Tip: ALWAYS refrigerate your vermouth! It is a wine product and will go bad if open at room temperature. So, to all of you who "hate vermouth", no - you hate ruined vermouth. Just like anyone who has only had room temperature red wine that's been opened for 3 weeks would hate wine.

It came from the 1980s, but was mutated by some trap monster which gave it a new lease on life! I'm not gonna lie, this is an odd hybrid - super useful for your YouTube channels! You can't not like this piece... unless you have no soul.

What's the difference between a dead frog in the road, and a dead trombone player in the road? The frog was probably going to a gig! Hah! Get it? Well... it took me 8 years to get it, so let me explain. When you go out hunting frogs, that is called "gigging". Gigging is bad for a frog. When you go out playing an instrument in a band for money, that is called "gigging". Gigging is good for a trombone player... but man, you gotta be good. You pretty much need a bass player and a drummer... not many people need a trombone player, so they typically don't get many gigs... Did I explain that right? Wait, let me start over...

You know when you watch a vampire movie and then you walk out into the real world, but you're still sort of in the fictional world because it looked like the real world... and that's where you are now. I call this Persistence of Fiction, and it feels awesome! Capture some fiction by playing this track while walking to the bus... er the Vampire Bus! or waiting in line at the Vampire DMV or sorting Vampire Direct Mail Ads or doing some Vampire Macrame.

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.

A little aggressive, a little chill, a little groovy, a little cool. Not entirely appropriate for all occasions, but in the right context - it may be just what you need! This is the "Goth 7th-Grader" of the music world. The instrument with the sharp chord hits is the mighty Mellotron, which is a pre-sampler sort of analog keyboard attached to a bunch of tape players. I cheated. This one is digital.
