Thus spake the prophet...

Another delightful blogger has written about my YouTube cover songs! The Prophet Blog gave me a glorious review, and I am extremely grateful. Check out the article here. He does claim that Khia's song is "generation defining". Hm. I guess we will have to see about that.

I do have some thoughts on the following section of the article:
Staying true to the original, Katelyn leaves the lyrical poetry 100% as it is, only censoring out the dreaded ‘N’ word since white folk ain’t allowed to say it.

When I set out to cover rap songs I think about staying true to the original song and turning it into something I find funny. It's not that I feel like I can't say the 'N' word because I am white, it's just that I don't think it is funny. Saying it doesn't add any element of humor to the cover, and not saying it doesn't leave the song empty or lacking in any way. In fact, no one before this blogger even noticed and mentioned it. So yeah, I'm not big on censorship, but I am big on funniness.

Someone covered me? Whaa?

Yes, that is correct. Someone actually covered one of my covers! This is tremendous. I love the video; they spent way more time on this one than I have on all of my videos combined. Creative and funny! These ladies turned my cover of Khia's "My Neck, My Back" into a hot tranny mess. And I love it. Absolutely love it. Check it out!



Also, you best be coming out to Lizard's Liquid Lounge in Chicago for my dirty rapz night. It will be fun! This Thursday night at 9pm! $4 margaritas and my set is followed by Adam who plays delightful country faves!

Rockin' With Mojo


Friday night's show at Silvie's went SO well. I had an unbelievable amount of fun and I even made a few bucks which was really great. There was a slight mishap where the plastic of my guitar strap literally shattered, but a fellow musician let me borrow hers. Other than that, it was perfect! But now I am preparing for my next show, this Thursday and the Double Door with MachineGun Mojo! There will be lots of rock, twang, possibly a bar fight. WHO KNOWS?!

Come and check out the rock gods of MachineGun Mojo. They'll croon, you'll swoon. I will play cello and you will be all, "Hey, that's pretty cool."

MY FIRST FRIDAY SOLO GIG


WHOA. Guys, I got booked for my first ever Friday night paying solo gig. And it is this Friday, August 6th at Silvie's Lounge. This is momentous. Look! There is even a visually assaulting flier with my name on it. Amazing! I get a half hour set that starts at around 10pm and the cover is $5 at the door. Make sure you tell them you are there to see me, so I can get da money, which is of course the only reason I do any of this.

So, come hang with me at Silvie's this Friday:
1902 W Irving Park
Chicago, IL
Acoustic Explosion!

In Other Sad News....

I submitted the term "pack o' franks" to urban dictionary, and they rejected it. No fair.
