Richard Eyer Smith's Excellent Adventures in Paradise

Lately, I've put up a few posts about my musical alter-ego, El D'Rage. I've posted a few videos in the past from the album, and also a few "Minit Rap" vids, the most popular - due, no doubt, to my creative talents, not the thumbnail - is "Cognitive Dissonance", which has had more than 20,000 hits.

These posts got me to thinking . . . it's time to make another video! 

I used to have a Mac, and creating a video was a piece of cake. Now, my 6 year old Acer with Windows Vista has changed all that. Creating a video - heck, creating anything - is a royal pain. But, enough about my problems. I'm sure there are lots of folks who have it MUCH worse (read: Windows 8 users), so I need to just shut up and share the new video with ya'll.

A bit of background: this tune is from the CD I made about 10 years ago, "When We Were Kids."  The album is a quirky collection of songs I wrote and performed, most of which deal with the process of growing older. 

Well, over the past 10 years I actually have gotten older. Who knew!

Some of these songs have come to have particular significance in my life. Track 5, "I Love Your Love", is about my wife, Cath, and our relationship over the past 40+ years. 

Track 1, "Retirement" and Track 7, "Money", are pertinent for me these days. (I have the first, still looking for the second!), and I suppose there's a "Sunday Morning", Track 11 is store for many of us.

 Oh, and one day ahead we can get together to reminisce about the "Good Old Days", #4, on "The Other Side", Track 9.
