The Beautiful Ms Parker And I Approach The Singularity (2040)

I’m pushing for a huger polished version of this to appear on Virginia Is For Hoverers (Part II).

The year was 2030
My hands were hardly dirty
The custom bug inserted
His wife would find him murdered
I had his mind and hence his codes
When the day broke, I was far away
From the banker man and the empty bank

All I want in a girl, she’s got to load all my weapons
All I need in the world, a pretty face at my back
While I’m hacking the lotto, killing a cop and singing my motto
By her side
All I want in the world, a little girl with a weapon

I met you ones and zeroes
We soon became the heroes
We hacked into The Center
We found a hidden vendor
Where we found out that we were clones
From a time lost
From another world
And we got it on just for one last time

All I want in a girl, she’s got to load all my weapons
All I need in the world, a pretty face at my back
While I’m hacking the lotto, killing a cop and singing my motto

So come on, baby
We go down together
So come on, Bonnie
Sing it like you mean it
Come on baby
We go down together
So come on, Bonnie
Sing it like you mean it
Come on baby
We’ll go down together
So come on, Bonnie
Sing it like you mean it

All I want in the world, a little girl with a weapon

winter’s the time for lovin

Winter's The Time


A four or five-year-old song called Winter’s The Time. I thought I’d better post it soon because Spring is almost here!

Come see the trio tonight in Richmond, Virginia tonight at 9:00 or 9:30.

I don’t know what we’ll play but we’ll probably do the likes of Another World, Tarmac, Feminine Mind, Drug, a new song, Rain King, Virginia, Sugar, Sherlock Holmes, maybe Quinn or something, or maybe Sequel! It will be a great show tonight.

Shows and buttons

Hi all! Cathy here once again, Chris’s trusty social-networking-booking-agent-manager. Chris is über-busy this week. He and Brett are in Richmond right now, recording lots of phenomenal new tunes at Jake Thro’s “Studio Eh?” pad for his upcoming album, “Virginia Is For Hoverers, Part 2″, available May 1st.

This Friday, Chris will play a show with the amazing Gills and Wings band at the Capital Ale House Music Hall in Richmond. If you live in RVA or thereabouts, come on out! Chris’s set starts around 9:30, full band, with Gills and Wings playing around 10:30. If you’ve never heard G&W they’re a powerhouse! You’re gonna love their sound. Check out their music here.

If you’ve noticed some neat looking “Chris buttons” on the right side of the homepage, those are button links especially for those Chris fans who have blogs and websites and would like to share their love of Chris with others in a less invasive way than bombarding friends and family with emails, tweets and Facebook page invites. These are all effective means as well, or you can try my favorite, the CMI (Chris Merritt Immersion) technique: playing Chris’s music spontaneously in a closed vehicle or room with another human being and not saying a word until they exclaim in utter astonishment, “Who IS this amazing guy and where can I get his CD??” ;-)

Also, coming up NEXT WEEK, New York City-area fans can catch Chris and Brett in an acoustic appearance at Manhattan’s Angels and Kings bar/lounge on Wednesday, Feb. 24th at 9pm. This is one of the most publicized, well-trafficked bars in NYC. Check out their site here. I hear there’s 2 for 1 drinks from 7-9pm, so get there early to hear some other great performers and, dare I say it, whilst double fisting?

Chris will post another blog very soon, so in the meantime, spread the word about these shows. Thanks so much!

Somebody show this to Steven Merchant for pete’s sake

recording studio

I’m in a recording studio.  In Utah.  I don’t know how I got here.

This weekend was a crazy NYC weekend and I need to tell you guys about it.  Some cool projects ahead!

Anyway, yesterday I flew to Utah for my quarter-annual show at Provo’s premier music venue, the notorious Velour.

I’m playing with Code Hero and Dustin Christensen who are two of my favorite artists around these parts.  If you are reading this, and you live in Salt Lake City or Provo or Orem or American Fork or any of the other cowboy-named-towns around here than you gotta be there!

I’ve just enjoyed a Bachelor Lunch Special:

  • Two slices of sandwich meat.  Serve plain and eat chilled.
  • One cup of Snack Pack pudding.  Vanilla or chocolate?  It’s up to your preference!
  • One carrot.  Important for a healthy lifestyle!
  • 1/2 bottle of Coca-Cola.  Enjoy straight from the bottle.  Why introduce a middleman?
