Busted: The Fan-Made Music Video

April 8, 2010

3 years ago, I woke up from a strange dream about Squidward, hackeysack, and Anne Curry with the sudden desire to write and record rap songs about my dreams. The project was mostly just an excuse to break in my new microkorg synthesizer and do something with myself musically after leaving my band in Maine. 3 years later, I’m back doing what I love; playing guitar in a punk band, while my dream rap project has gone dormant. I still put on my DreamRapper hat from time to time to entertain new friends, but it’s basically just stays as another notch on my quirk card. I haven’t posted anything in over a year, the Switchpod service that I was using to host my songs has folded so none of the songs work anymore. The Dream Rapper project was slowly dying.

Then, out of nowhere, someone contacted me and asked if he could make a music video for my song, Busted (The Unicycle Rap). “Of course!” I replied. I was just happy to see someone else take a little inspiration from something silly that I made. A few weeks later when he finally sent me a link to video he made, I couldn’t stop laughing. He did a great job at putting together the visuals of my ridiculous dream story line. Check it out for yourself and give him some love in the comments. Great job!

Ride The Lobster

January 4, 2008

2008 is here and that means one thing and one thing only: Ride the Lobster is fast approaching. This June, Nova Scotia will host a historic unicycle relay race with teams competing from all over the world. The event is 5 days of riding and covers 800km. My dad, brother, and I will be representing Arizona, Maine, and Pennsylvania. The race will be tracked live via GPS and GoogleEarth.

What does this mean for DreamRapper? Well the dream rap project is coming to a close. I have a 5th dream rap in the hip-hop tumbler getting polished, and I’m still playing guitar with DuPont Menage and STC. Once I get my new unicycle, most of my free time will have to be spent riding and training. If you’d like to check out the latest news on RTL, check out the official Ride The Lobster┬áblog.
