Bin Guy

Is it possible to write a song that only uses three-letter words, and actually have it make sense? Musician Brett Domino proves he’s clearly up to the challenge with his track “Bin Guy,” a song about unrequited love and taking the trash out. From the album Keytar Your Heart.

It’s Time to Get Good at Darts

Like many of us, entertainer Brian David Gilbert is stuck at home for a while. But rather than sit there and whine about it, he’s making the most of it and using the time to perfect his dart-throwing (and song writing) skills. Our dart-throwing technique of choice? Spray-and-pray.

A Song About Birds

A Song About Birds

Eat a Sandwich

Eat a Sandwich

Pot Brownies

Pot Brownies

“Making pot brownies… is a big mistake, if you live in Texas while you bake.” The little ditty the lawyers of Hutson & Harris wrote about marijuana edibles is funny, but it’s the harsh and unnecessary penalties that Texas throws at folks for possessing them that blew our minds.
