This was a bit of a glorified 3 song demo, of which I gave away over a thousand copies. I discovered that I make more friends, however, giving away cookies.

There was a 4th bonus track on my website about National Public Radio, that is no longer available. You snooze, you loose.

Please visit for detailed song notes.


released January 1, 2007

All songs were written and produced by yours truly, Scott Alexander. That’s me singing, playing guitar, and also bassoon. Michael Compitello played and co-conceived the percussion on “Unfortunately Fat,” which we recorded at the Peabody Conservatory of Music with Zach Herchen as the engineer. “Fucking Technology” was recorded at Nola Studios, by Jim Czak and Johanna Cranitch. “What other People Think” was recorded by Pete Reiniger at Private Ear Recording. Everything was mastered by Fred Kevorkian at Kevorkian Mastering. In exchange for the cookies, Michael Harlan Turkell did the photography, which was used in the graphic design of Dan Au. Furthermore, this recording would not be what it is without the encouragment, inspiration, and friendship of John Brauer, Tony Monte, Ed Schlueter, and Rebecca.
