2013It’s time for my yearly blog update. Really, I plan to do more than one. But you know how that goes.

Thanks to the people at the famous Cafe Improv in Princeton, NJ, for once again picking one of my performances as “best of the year.” They even left in the little intro explaining the song, which is called “Taking Out The Soda Machine.” This is a song about people getting fired. It’s a true story, too, and you can see me playing it right here.

If anyone wants to sue me, go right ahead. You can reach the Happy Joe legal department at 1 (800) NO MONEY. If the line is busy, try 1 (800) FUCK OFF.

I’m also supposed to be playing this song live on Tom Florek‘s radio show at some point this year. I don’t know all the details yet, but it’s called The Tom and Doug Show, and it’s on the Pacifica network (I think that’s part of NPR). Tom is one hell of a talented guy, so check out his link. I hope to be back at Cafe Improv soon.

In other news, I finally finished the video, “Song For The Next War.” It’s right here. Don’t watch it if you don’t want to see images of dead people. Don’t start wars, either.

I think the video has received about 75 views. For my next video, I will feature a cat playing the piano, or maybe a guy getting smacked in the testicles by a football and then falling down a flight of stairs. Those will get about 5 million views each, I’m sure.

I’m going to be playing on blowupradio.com’s “guitar pull” on January 27. I forget why it’s called a “guitar pull,” but it involves three people sitting around in Lazlo’s studio/living room taking turns playing “unplugged.” I don’t think he airs it live, so I’ll post the date at some point. In the meantime, check out blowupradio.com. It really is a great internet radio station.
