Ten Things I Learned From My First Year of Motorcycling

I never really wanted to do it, really. I looked down on motorcycles, in fact; that people would take that much risk when there are plenty of fun options with seat belts, air bags, and roll cages just confounded me. Then two days in a parking lot with some qualified MSF instruction happened. Aaron and

This Con Is Haunted

Lately there has been much discussion about “ghosting” conventions. If you’ve never heard the term, “ghosting” is when you attend a convention without paying for registration. Huge conventions can block off entire floors and use RFID badges, but most just have to accept that people will take advantage of the reduced hotel rate without actually

Standing Between Two Worlds

Two days after returning from Furry Fiesta, I packed right back up and boarded a plane for Virginia to play two cons at the same time. No, seriously, this was a first for me. I was invited to play for FursonaCon’s first year, but they were no ordinary nascent geek gathering. They’d emerged as part

Art by SwanBear based on lyrics from Lost My Way

“When The Sun Comes Up” by SwanBear

An artist who goes by SwanBear shared this beautiful piece based on a lyric from Goodbye Planet Earth. Here’s the artist’s description: I’m very proud to present this piece that I drew for Ethan Staghorne for his music art book project! I was instructed to illustrate a lyrics quote, and chose a quote from a

Thank You, Texas

I had an absolute BLAST in Texas last weekend. No, this wasn’t SXSW. Why would I go to Austin when Texas Furry Fiesta wanted to put me on their main stage, treat me like a rock star, and surround me with adorable fluffy things for three days? As I type, I can still feel the

Beer & Coffee - Officer's Club Edition

Tennessee Never Cried – One for the Officers

And now another one just for my Officer’s Club… Tennessee Never Cried! Back in 2004 when I wrote this, I actually hoped to find a local string quartet I could borrow to play behind the piano. Unfortunately, musicians like to be paid… and talented string players in Nashville get paid a lot. And I was

Working on the Big Concert

My, how the days fly by. It feels like I just announced another performance of Goodbye Planet Earth LIVE yesterday, but nearly every day since then I’ve been holed up in my Composition Lab going over the technical gymnastics that make that show happen. Audio/video sync, live looping, practicing song transitions that sometimes overlap each

Goodbye Planet Earth LIVE On Stage

I’m so excited I could explode. Runtt and I will be performing all of my album “Goodbye Planet Earth” synchronized to the 2005 movie “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” LIVE ONSTAGE this March! It’s been a while since I could announce this, but we always ask. The last time we did this was at

The Need to Feel “Better”

Warning: This song is NSFW, but you should listen to it anyway. Read the lyrics beforehand if you’re worried. So… here’s a song about my raging insecurities. Doesn’t that sound like fun? It’s not easy being with someone who often feels, as Jon Stewart put it, “embarrassingly superior to you.” Especially when you’re an artist,

Looking Forward To A Year Of Failure

Photo by Mr. TinDC 2016 is going to be a year of failure. I embrace it. Something that annoys the hell out of me is my Fear of Failure. It’s the same fear that’s been there ever since grade school, like a zit that simply won’t go away. In fact, the world has given me

Merry Christmas from Matthew Ebel

Merry Christmas, Seuss Day, or whatever winter coldtime ritual is practiced on your planet! Ever since I moved the Officer’s Club to Patreon, I’ve been re-recording songs from Beer & Coffee with REAL drums (thank you, Runtt) and re-mixing them with the ten years of experience I’ve had since that album was released. Well, instead

The Best Concert Video I’ve Ever Made

This is probably the best concert footage I’ve ever gotten. Not exaggerating. During our Anthrocon show, “Live at Fortran Prison”, Runtt and I were joined by Jared Clark (aka Pepper Coyote) and Foxamoore for one of the most magical on-stage moments I’ve ever experienced. Seriously, it gives me chills watching this and remembering how good

Stop showing up for the beating.

Just in time for Black Friday, it’s a song about mindless consumerism! Aren’t I the opportunist? Actually, this one started as a song about not drinking shitty beer, but I couldn’t bring myself to write an entire song about JUST that. I mean, it’s a noble topic, but probably not worth more than an entire
