Hand Washing 101

We wrote a song about hand washing at least a week before everyone else wrote a song about hand-washing. I just forgot to put a link to it here the the BDT. Forgive me?

Youtube – Wash Your Hands

This one is less my song than The Big W – I came up with the concept and provided only about 6% of the lyrics. My son [OutLyer] really wrote and performed the whole thing himself. I just like to call it “our” song. I did the weirdly crappy video, though!

What’s My Band Name

Tom said he’d help me get my hit single onto Spotify, but I have to pick out a band name. He suggested tying my “brand” together with “Jody and the BigDumpTrucks” but that sounds a little long to me. Also, I’m not exactly performing on the song – my son (aka Outlyer) is doing the vocals.  Ideas?

The Big W

I wrote a song. Created the music, too. My son did final production and the vocals, but everything else is me, baby!

I only wrote the song because “if you guys can do this, so can I!” Nice burst of creativity last week. I hope I didn’t peak.

Also, I submitted this under the band name “Just Ducky”. I had reasons, not good ones, but reasons.

The Big W

Songwriting challenge: write a song about a specific scene in a book or movie. You should be able to figure it out.

I Decided on my Grandma Name!

I don’t plan to be a grandmother for quite a while, but at an MLM shampoo party tonight,  I learned my friend’s sister-in-law is called “Bamma” by her grandkids and holy hell if that isn’t the best Grandma name ever! So I’m writing this here so I can find it later. My grandchild, who I assume will be a boy (because it’s like when you get a dog, whatever gender the dog is, you assume all dogs are that gender) is going to call me “Bamma Jody”. And we can all sing “She’s a Bad Mamma Jamma” at every family gathering. I’m going to totally rock my new name!

Not a Newbie Any More

I just hit the one-year anniversary of my podcast, Adventures in Jodysitting, and I’m shocked.. SHOCKED… that I didn’t give up on it the way I have so many other things. Now if only the 11 listeners could each pony up a hundred thousand dollars, we’d be talking wild success.

If you haven’t listened to the podcast recently, or at all, I think episodes 26 and 27 are pretty good. If you listen to them, the numbers will bump up, and I will be a happy girl. I mean, it’s up to you, but don’t you like happy girls?
