Society of Virtue Half-Off at Smashwords

Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that I am currently offering a coupon for 50% off of my book The Society of Virtue over at The coupon code is SSW50 and it’s valid until July 31st, 2012. So if you haven’t grabbed  a copy yet, now is the time to do it! I appreciate everyone’s support.

I’ve also been considering writing a follow up to the book since before I even published The Society of Virtue. I don’t want to do it just for the sake of putting out another book though and I want to make sure I have a really solid concept and vision of what the book will be before embarking on the journey of writing it. There are other books I’m working on however and as time and diligence permits, I will have those finished and published soon enough.

But all of that is beside the point. Go grab a copy of The Society of Virtue today for half off!

Buy it at Remember to enter the coupon code SSW50 at checkout.

Godzilla, Don’t Eat Me Music Video

I recently put out a new music video for a song I recorded a couple years ago titled “Godzilla, Don’t Eat Me”. The video is made from clips of one of the very early Godzilla movies. I had a lot of fun making it and you can view the video below.

The reason for releasing this right now is because my focus is shifting away from doing music as a solo artist and I wanted to get this made before I get too deeply involved with my new band. Yep, I’m in a new rock band. I’ll have more details about that once we have a proper website put together.

People Just Like Beetles

My very first online video The Japanese Beetle Trap has surpassed 5,000 views on YouTube. I know that there are plenty of videos that get views into the millions but I’ll settle for 5,000 and counting for a low quality video about japanese beetles, it’s definitely a niche topic.

My two other more recent videos appear to have gotten lost somewhere in the bowels of YouTube however. A Valentine Song from back in February still has less than 20 views and Josh the Chicken only has 10 views. I don’t do enough in the field of online video to understand why one video gets lots of views and others never receive any. One thing I have noticed is that YouTube now pushes paying them to promote your video on their site. So that could explain why more recent videos seem to get lost if there’s nothing external to YouTube driving a lot traffic to the video. 


You can view all of my videos on the Videos page.

Josh The Chicken

This video was in response to someone telling me I ought to bite the head off of a real chicken…obviously that’s not something I would do.

A Valentine’s Day Song

This is a song I wrote for my wife for Valentine’s Day. I hope you like it.

The Japanese Beetle Trap

Last year I made a short video titled The Japanese Beetle Trap, in which I modified an ordinary japanese beetle trap to allow it to capture an exponentially larger amount of beetles. The results were amusing, disgusting, and informative. Well beetle season is almost upon us again so I thought it would be a good time to share the video on here. It’s the first and only video I’ve ever done and the quality is pretty poor but people seem to like it so far.

I’ve been thinking about making a higher quality trap that could hold far more than this one did but I don’t know if I’ll get the time before the beetles really show up. I have been itching to do more videos though so who knows.
