I Got Hit by a Mink Car

Awhile ago, I was invited to be a part of the Mink Car Cover project with 18 other amazing artists (including Mustin of The OneUps, Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics, MC Frontalot, my almost-roommate Jonathan Mann of SONGATRON, and many more!) The original Mink Car album by They Might Be Giants was released on September 11, 2001, the day of the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. We’ll be covering all of Mink Car and proceeds will go to the FDNY Foundation.

I’m so honored to be in the company of all these great artists that I’ve admired from afar. For the TMBG fans out there, the track that I’m doing is “Mink Car” itself as a piano solo. I’m really excited for the whole project! Check out http://minkcarcover.com to read about the project’s background, the artists, and to pre-order the album.

In other news, I’m working on a really cool duet with Dave Harris (aka Blitz Lunar), one of my favorite people in the universe. Red Burst, Yellow Drill, Orange Rocket, Green Hover, Blue Cube, Purple Frenzy, White Boost - can you guess what game soundtrack we’ll be performing from?

Happy 4th of July, American friends! Hope you all enjoy the holiday on Monday!


  1. Very cool! Looking forward to hearing your version of "Mink Car"! You got hit by a Mink Car, so I'm sure your Mink Car will be a hit. BTW, I found your blog through the "Mink Car Cover" facebook page.

  2. Awesome! And thank you, I'll try my best not to disappoint!

  3. Congratulations! I've been a big fan of your renditions on the piano, and I'm excited things are working out for you! Good luck with Mink Car, and have fun with it!

  4. Let me guess. Sonic Colors? Haha, I googled what you said. I sent you an email asking if you could help me with a piece of music. Please check it out.

  5. Glad to hear about you, Aivi! I was just thinking you abandoned this blog =( =( =(

    I have yet to play Sonic Colors myself, but everyone I know tells me it's amazing, and I've listened to some of its tracks and the OST is quite good.

    Anyway, I'm busy with Ocarina of Time 3D right know, so I don't think i'll play anything else anytime soon.

    Good luck with Mink Car! =)

  6. OOOOOuuups, this is funny. I must apologise for saying you were abandoning this blog. I know see that the "Basic Step" video is quite new. And your keyboard and... well, everything D=

    Sorry, I though the basic step video was the same post as the "Sketches: "Butterfly" and "Basic Step" from february lol, so I didn't recognise that post as new.

    Hell, It must be because of my college exams. Biomedicine is killing me ó_ò

  7. Hope your fourth was as good as ours. Interesting blog.

  8. What does hit by a Mink Car mean?
