Celebrating My Second Blogging Anniversary with a Song



For my second blogging anniversary, I’m not going to spew y’all with boring numbers about how popular my posts are, how many people subscribe, etc. Instead, I’m going to give you some good, old-fashioned entertainment (well, maybe not old-fashioned). I’m going to give you a song. And a video. About Web 2.0. ‘Cause I’m sometimes silly that way. So – if you want to download these behemoth files, here they are:

And of course, since my singing is most likely incoherent to some, the lyrics, in all their danged glory, are included below. Enjoy!

Are You Blogging This?
2006 by David King

Delicious myspace then tell me with meebo
Drop my feed into bloglines, I’m so web 2.0

    Rock on! Sounds a bit like REM, and lyrics channel Cobain (one of my all-time favorites is ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’). Totally cool!

    Damn, that is the second blog post to make me laugh out loud today. (Here is the first.) Nicely done. Bonus points for filming it at work (unless your home looks like a cube farm, in which case, negative points).

    So, Steve, are you suggesting that Dave’s song…needs more cowbell?

    Excellent song, Dave. Next stop: Sandstone! (Or you could take a page from the High Strung and do a tour of libraries.)

    David would be in good company if he added more cowbell.

    All’s I know is, I can’t stop thinking “are you blogging this, are you blogging this? Oh-ooo-oh!”

    David,
    Great song and video. Perhaps a guitar gathering/ librarian singalong is in order at Internet Librarian or CiL?

    Just caught your celebratory tune. Loved it. But . . . Looking at your lyrics I see you missed one :-)

    Hi David! I’ve been lurking around here for a few weeks and have been enjoying seeing you again virtually. I shared the video with Sarah and the kids last evening and they couldn’t get enough of it! And, as another post implied, the chorus goes to bed with you and wakes up with you… very catchy! I’ll want to catch up with you soon re: possible endeavors here at your old stomping ground. :)

    Daweed,

    Loved the song. Your vocals and guitar playing have grown by leaps and bounds (no offense to your “Rock To The Top” days). It reminded me of Green Day, especially the vocals.

    I couldn’t download the video because I have stupid dial-up.

    Awesome, Tom! That’s the coolest comment yet. For those of you who don’t know what Tom’s talking about – he’s an old college friend, and we were in a band together. And yes, you can here the band online, at http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=301464

    Check it out!

    Ok, I’m a little late to this party, but awesome job, there, Squagmar. I got to see the video, and way too much of your teeth, but I’ll put that on my Ipod anyway. So, when’s that Senators reunion concert?

  • davidleeking

    Hey, Tone-hor! A Senators reunion concert would be way too scary (unless we could resurrect that old organ in the music building).

    But… Brian and I would like to get together Feb-march-ish… let’s do the email thing and figure it out.
