Utah Jazz fans! Utah Rock fans! Utah Jazz-Rock-Piano-Grunge-Sissy-Punk fans! After about fifty thousand nagging requests from the Salt Lake/Provo fans, Chris Merritt (that’s me) is coming back to town. It’s been a while. I’ve missed you.
I’m also playing my favorite East Coast venue Night Cat in Maryland really soon! Start getting the word around. Here are all the dates:
Listening to some tools on NPR talk about robuts (Zoidberg for ‘robots’).
The main robut dude (he was a DUDE who was into ROBUTS, not a robotic dude) was talking about how he didn’t think that there would ever be robuts or AI who would surpass the intelligence of humans. Both show hosts chuckled in tool agreement, and so, another enormously complex, significant, scientific issue was put into a nice NPR package.
I’m not knocking NPR. Well, yes I am. But I like it, and a lot. It’s really the only radio besides classical that I can listen to without suddenly exploding. It’s just that, I don’t quite get the tone. Everyone talks like a subdued librarian. And everyone seems to have to agree and maintain a strange sterility. They are the opposite of outspoken. NPR shows often often A. draw pink-ribbon, prophetic, generalized conclusions on the subject at hand or B. make things digestible and less interesting.

Hey, wait a minute. I’m not even talking about NPR. I’m talking about robuts.
So anyway, this robut man said he couldn’t imagine robots ever reaching human capacities because he’s seen all the problems that arise when building robuts. It’s hard to get them to do stuff. Read More …
I had some free time yesterday and I edited this video together. What fun.
It features the demo version of Such A Long Time Ago, which I was singing along with, driving in beautiful springtime Virginia. I like the chill-ness of the demo version, but the explosive-ness of the final version.
Whoa, lots of text questions to answer! Thanks for all the awesome questions! Keep sending them in at 801-6-TEXT-CM!!!
Funmail questions! You’re an amazing musician, and your music is simply beautiful. That being said, I have some questions for you: Pirates or ninjas?
Ninjas yesterday. Today, pirates.
Star Wars or Star Trek?
The original 3 Star Wars are a whole perfect Universe. My friend and I, who’s name I will not disclose (Jake Thro) watch them all in a row sometimes. I’m convinced the campiness of Enterprise was genius. Next Generation is best. The new movie sucked.
