iTom: Free Music From Tom Smith

Music in every style -- except dull. Tom Smith, the World's Fastest Filker and the prototypical geek folk-rocker, releases new music for free download on a regular basis. (It was a song a week for almost a year.) You can subscribe to the RSS feed, purchase a better-quality MP3 of the song, or purchase three months' worth as a downloadable album.

Interlude: Tech Support For Dad (Live)

Forgive me for not having the new iTom song up yet. It actually was written Friday, but between doing stuff at Oasis and my family coming down to the con I haven't been able to record a decent vocal yet. It may not happen tonight, either, although I'll try.

However, here's something I hope will make up for it: "Tech Support For Dad", performed at the concert last night, and guest-starring... my dad. :)

You think you've got problems -- my I still live close enough to my parents that doing tech support involves making house calls!

The message I most dread from Dad is "My computer's being mean to me again."Second are "Where did my blipuses go?" and "There's an extra blipus."(desktop icons)

LOL!! Oh lord. I remember back in the mid-late 80s when I was a teenager and we got our first computer, one of the early Macs, you know, the ones so simple and easy you could figure them out in an hour without help?? Or at least I did, which was amazing to me... Anyways, my Dad, who was used to the PC computers at the office, kept asking me how to do certain tasks on the Mac so he could get work done at home - like writing a form letter, making a table, that sort of thing. But, he wanted to do this without learning the basics of Mac usage, like the menu commands, using a mouse, etc! And he would get mad at me if I confused him or "wasted his time with non-essentials"! Talk about Hillel being asked to teach the Torah to a man standing on only leg!! Oy! Thank god he learned eventually...

My condolences to you Tom, and thanks for a very funny song!

To the Anonymous Above: the original version was on The FuMP volume 1. The lyrics are on the song's page on The FuMP.
