released March 14, 2014

I wrote and recorded a bunch of songs about pizza in the span of 24 hours. Then I picked the best ones and put them on here. Then Emily and I picked up some Gumby's and recorded a song that we wrote together back around Halloween.

(Note: For the uninitiated, Midweek Madness is a special deal that Gumby's has every Wednesday.)

Credits:
Delia Rainey painted the cover artwork
Emily Downing co-wrote, sang, barked and played violin on "Ghost Dog!"
Jody Gerth also made some cool barking noises on "Ghost Dog!"

Track Name: Midweek Madness
whenever i'm hungry
i go to gumby's
and a lot of times even when i'm not

i'm sure it's not healthy
but i'm pretty skinny
anyway i don't think i could stop

i use midweek madness
as an antidote for my midweek sadness
i use midweek madness
as a synonym for paper ceilings practice

they're playing the fray on the jukebox, somehow i don't mind
they're showing football on the tv but i feel fine
cause i've got two mediums with extra cheese
i snagged a booth for you me
no need to text me cause you know where i'll be

i use midweek madness
as an antidote for my midweek sadness
i use midweek madness
as a synonym for paper ceilings practice

whenever i'm hungry
i go to gumby's
and a lot of times even when i'm not
Track Name: HOT-N-READY
let's get a hot n ready
start saving up your pennies
we'll eat it in your backseat
cause they kicked us out of hy vee

five bucks is all you need
five bucks to set you free
five bucks is all you need
five bucks to set you free

there's pasta in the kitchen
but i don't wanna make it
i just want little caesars
i can't even try to fake it

stop by on my way home
it'll make me feel all better
i'll eat it on the couch
spinning some springsteen records

five bucks is all you need
five bucks to set you free
five bucks is all you need
five bucks to set you free

so...
let's get a hot n ready
start saving up your pennies
we'll eat it in your backseat
cause they kicked us out of hy vee
Track Name: Kate & Ally's
we went to kate and allys
the waiter was really high
that pizza was amazing
i wonder what they put in that pie

i don't know if i wanna know
i don't know if i wanna know
i don't know if i wanna know
i don't know if i wanna know
Track Name: The World's Largest Slice
i ate the world's largest slice last time i was in chicago
i got a feeling they can't verify that claim but what do i know?

i'm not gonna question anything
with a giant slice in front of me
i'm not gonna question anything
my mouth is way too full to sing
Track Name: Ghost Dog!
yesterday i lost my dog
and now i'm sad and blue
have you seen him anywhere?
i don't know what to do

ghost dog!

i know that you are skeptical
but he is not imaginary
believe me when i say to you
that he is real and sorta scary

ghost dog!

sitting in my room and through the walls
i heard some paws from down the hall
picked up my guitar and strummed a chord
heard a bark i'd never heard before

ghost dog!

i never gave halloween much thought
no tricks for me, no treats for you
he was sent to spook me out
the spirit of halloween lives through...

ghost dog!

he was my best friend
but some say he's just pretend...

ghost dog!
