Listen to our recording of "Twenty-Five" on our Facebook page! The singers are Molly and Steven, and lyrics are below:

Twenty-five, or two and five
Spelled with two prime numbers
Twenty-five, or five times five
And sum of two square numbers
Twenty-five, la la la
Five more than a full score
If you count by fountain pen
Count five groups of tallies

Suddenly I found myself beginning to sit still
Suddenly I found that I was picking up the bill
Yet my scribbles from so long ago still send me chills
Still send me chills

Twenty-five is silver, please
When it's my anniversary
Twenty-five is manganese
If you're into chemistry
Twenty-five is a quarter of
The big old sum one hundred
Twenty-five is the quarter coin
The head of our first president

Dusting off my old Nintendo really made me feel
Like those days I weren't in charge of making any deals
They assure me, son, you ain't seen half of what is fun
They say I'm still young

Twenty-five golden rings
On five lucky hands they fit
And every year, many like
This day in December

Mosswood park duets

If you hadn't noticed, yesterday was the most beautiful day out here in the East Bay. Just gorgeous.

Steven and I carted our various music making supplies over to the park and tried things out till the sun went down. We played all the songs I sing on and/or have banjo/glockenspiel parts for. Pleasantness all around. Small children eyed us happily. Really, there is nothing better than playing music outside on a nice day.

I have also been outed as a not-as-bad-as-I-used-to-be banjo player. It's still to be seen what that means for this band. Pretty excited to be starting a bluegrass band with some other folks next Sunday, though. I have high hopes for this bluegrass thing. Maybe we could play a show with the rest of the BPP folks some time.

Devin McCutchen - Earthquake Blues

Devin came over to San Jose to record some instrumental tracks for our demo CD, and in-between takes he started playing his new song "Earthquake Blues" and I was so amazed by this song that I felt we needed to go outside and make a definitive recording, La Blogotheque style.

Coming soon to a social networking site near you

We're heading down to San Jose to record a few more songs tomorrow. Steven, Devin and Russ have some fantastic new songs that we're hoping to save for posterity - so watch out for those!

Also, we now have a little "Fan Base" section on the blog ---->
