This post is dedicated to Ted Teddy Theo Theodore Didday: my treeclimbing, John Mayer p’wning, Autotuning, making Songs For Youing, Scoots Mcgootsing, licorice-eating, Kenny G Christmas music in Maying, pokerfacing, sushi rolling, Lion Kinging, salmon-worshipping ( ;p ), bringing mutton-chops backing, Schni schna schnapping, Phishing, It’s Always Sunnying, hula-hooping, dumpster divingest roomie.
As you may (probably not) know, I’m moving off Pennsylvania Ave and out of my apartment when I leave for the East Coast in a few weeks. Hence, Ted and I will be roommates in spirit only–which saddens me.
Ted, *ladies* is awesome. Also, Theo’s rediculously talented in the musical arena, like some kind of instrumental gladiator, with less blood and more ukulele. That’s awesome², for the mathematically challenged among us. He has a website/amazing service called Songs Made For You (SMFY–“Smiffy”, for short). Check that out and order yoself up a song! You absolutely will not be disappointed. Make sure you order something both T-Payne inspired and incorporating a harpsichord–then sit back and have your mind blown.
Here was supposed to be a link to a song he wrote me one day, just cause he’s awesome (did I mention that? I feel like I did…) but the link won’t work. It was called Don’t Water Too Much and in it he gave the musical bird to a guy that foolishly broke my heart. Pssht.
Oh! and his band, Libros En Fuego, is awesome. So, awesome³ (when I said the mathematically challenged among us I meant…me.) If you’re in the mid-Cal region, you like jazz mixed with funk mixed with jellyfish costumes and possibly a teensy bit o’ Luther Vandross, and you enjoy seeing a bunch of rediculously talented people kill it onstage–check out one of their shows coming up soon….HERE!
Anywho, Ted is awesome, annnnnd I miss him, annnnnd if you are a hot single lady, robot, or lady robot you should look him up in Santa Cruz and go support his band and buy a song and ask him to take you dumpster diving on the back of his scooter.
You’ll love it, or your money back!
