I rewrote the lyrics to Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah my freshman year of college, as a tribute to St. John’s College. I played this on my guitar at Collegium (the college-wide talent show). Here’s the lyrics, with references to Euclid’s Elements, Plato’s Republic, and Homer’s Odyssey.
I’ve been working on this for a while, and I’m excited it’s finally ready to share. Create an account and vote on your favorite games’ core aesthetics!
My brother Ben stars in this music video we made for the song “I’m Not Cool,” from Scott Krippayne’s album “All of Me.” When we made this, I was 11 and he was 10. I made him do a lot of stunts and a lot of takes. Thank you, Ben!
Written in 2009, in one sitting, in the recording studio in my parents’ basement.
One thing I’m really bad at when running tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeon World is finding a good reason for my players do something adventurous. Adventure stories are full of heroes leaving their homes for some reason or another. So, I thought I’d take a look at the heroes in stories I knew and figure out why they leave home to go do whatever it is they do.
This is an old project. I was 13 when I made this, so don’t expect much higher quality than that. There are two parts.
This is one of those projects that’s small and easy to share.
Written in 2009. Probably about the doorknob in my college dorm room. But who knows, really, what a song is about?
