Just a Dream

Who hasn't wanted a time machine at some point in their life? That's what this song is about.

My childhood friend, Robyn Deckert, passed away at the young age of 24 last year, and it inspired me to write this song.

The lyrics may seem odd at first, but once you listen to the entire song, they'll make more sense. Because of this, I created a lyrics video for it. Check out the video/song here:

Memphis

This weekend I went to Memphis with 2 of my friends. It'd never been high on my list of places I wanted to go, but I'm really glad I went. It's an awesome town.

One of our first stops was the birthplace of rock and roll, Sun Studio. The guy who owned it, Sam Phillips, accidentally distorted the guitars on multiple recordings. He was also known for discovering/recording artists such as Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis. The tour was really cool, and it lasted about an hour.


Memphis is known for it's BBQ, so we stopped at Corky's for brisket sandwiches for lunch. I ate at the one in Little Rock a few times when I lived there. It's really good.

Later, we drove by Graceland, but we didn't do the tour because tickets were $30 apiece.


For dinner we went to another BBQ restaurant on Beale Street called Rendezvous for their world-famous ribs. It was a huge place, and we had to wait more than an hour. It was worth the wait, though.

Beale Street was the highlight of the visit for me. If you're a blues fan, you'll love it at night. There were blues bands set up all over the streets in addition to the bars. I did find it interesting that cops block the road off at night to perform bag-checks and use metal detectors. I also thought it was cool that a lot of the places had windows where you could walk up and order a drink to carry around on the streets. I was at the less-crowded end of the street when I took this picture:


Where else can you find a guitar toilet seat?


Another tour we did was at the Gibson factory. I was kind of disappointed because the Luthiers do not work on the weekends, so we didn't get to see anyone building the guitars. It was still a neat tour. Pictures weren't allowed in the factory, so this is all I got:


Overall I really enjoyed Memphis, and I wouldn't mind living there for a year or two. It's not at the top of my list, but the housing market is really cheap, and it has a great music scene. Maybe the pyramid runs the housing market prices down...

Prism

Here's my newest song called "Prism." It's a different style, and I can't decide what to call it. I wrote it when I was thinking about the theory that different colors can invoke different emotions in you. Hope you like it!
