All of the details pertaining to the reissue of our old album, Princess and the Hero, were just finalized. If everything goes right with the distributor, it should be available for streaming on May 24, 2019. We are nailing down the details to rerelease a CD version as well. To correspond with the reissue, it felt appropriate to use this old post as this week’s update. This was originally posted on February 8, 2017
I used to be romantic. We were young, in love, and full of unrealistic expectations. My muse didn’t require grandiose gestures, but she deserved them. I headed to the laboratory where I concocted an 18 song album detailing in fictional format my imagined notion of our very real relationship. It was a manipulative, she will love me or else, fairytale version of the story of us. There would be a corresponding live performance that would culminate with a public declaration of love. I bought a ring and planned every detail of this epic proposal. She didn’t have much of a choice which improved my odds. By the way, she said yes.
Our most recent date night included Grandma watching the kids so we could get our taxes done. Originally 2017, not much has changed since then.
Originally released in 2003, Princess and the Hero, has become a definitive part of our story. Our favorite song is “Old Vinyl,” it’s about dancing in the living room.

I recorded an updated version with a new verse that fits our current life situation. This was released as part of the weekly Sound Cloud project from 2017 and can be found on Stomp Your Feet.
