I haven’t been playing a ton of shows recently while I’ve been working on writing a book, but Jamie DeWolf gave me a microphone at Tourettes Without Regrets in Oakland last month and today I discovered there’s video evidence! Here’s my little lighthearted, dark-humored ukulele tune, “Don’t Know Much About Star Wars” that both is and is not about Star Wars, including a new verse I wrote for the occasion. (Thanks to Kenny Hoff for the vid!)
It only took four years after writing the song, but the official “Try Not To Be A Dick” music video has finally come to be! While I was on tour this summer, some friends in Philly generously offered to help me make my first for-realsies music video, and the results are yours to judge. Watch it, share it, Like it, play it for a few choice people in your office … and pat yourself on the back in advance, for trying not to be a dick.
