The latest from my TMBG sing along sketchbook project, Mink Car edition.  Felt a little odd doing a sketch called “Hopeless Bleak Despair” on Easter!  Next up, “Drink!”

During TOO MUCH TMBG week, we only except the TMBG lovers. Haters can escort themselves out.

It’s a little late, but happy Record Store Day too! Enjoy Rabid Child in this charming, old-timey format.

1993. I’d seen TMBG in New Haven in high school, but this was my first show in college. Snuck across town to rivals WPI campus, skipping Spree Day. Worth ti!

PROG ROCK from TMBGs Venue Songs with John Hodgman—it’s TREES!

Tell the moon you’ve seen the serpent
Found the sword and walked among the…
Trees! Trees!

Trip the forest through the branches 
On the limb you fell the nest of… bees!
Tell the moon you’ve seen the serpent 
Found the sword and walked among the…
Trees!

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m the orange peel
You don’t remember
But I was once part of your orange
I’m the peel that you left on the floor
You took the good part and walked out the door
And I hate you for that
I hate you for that

I’m the orange peel

When the flood waters reach where I lay
French Broad River will float me away
And I hate you for that
I hate you for that

I’m the orange peel

Aw! I didn’t know it was going to be a big submission week. If only I’d started this four weeks ago, I wouldn’t be in this mess. Hope you will accept a work in progress. Hand embroidered cotton thread on cotton canvas 16” x 16”. Jacobean/Day of the Dead/TMBG themed thingy. Maybe it will be a pillow.
