Sam Pocker Sings Juliana Hatfield

My new EP "Sam Pocker Sings Juliana Hatfield" will be released on or before April 13th, 2018. This started as a "wouldn't it be funny if" kind of thing that spiraled out of control and got very meta very quickly. Just about everything that could go wrong in the process of making it did. It cost a lot more to make than I had anticipated or budgeted for, and it took a lot longer to make than it should have. I wasn't even remotely being a perfectionist with it.

The worst thing about it is now that I'm sitting here writing this post I realize that I've totally screwed up and should have called it "Sam Pocker Sings Juliana Hatfield Singing Olivia Newton-John" and there should be all three of us on the cover. Fine line between clever and stupid I suppose.

You can pre-order it here. It costs $4.99 and I will donate $1 from each copy to the Olivia Newton-John Centre which does cancer research. I think Olivia Newton-John and I lived in the same neighborhood when I lived in Las Vegas but I never got a chance to see her in concert.

If you'd like to compare it to the original "Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John" CD ($12) you can buy that from her record label here.

For the Capricorns among you, you can purchase Olivia Newton-John's Greatest Hits from Amazon ($11.99).

I plan on making a music video for "Universal Heartbeat" but it's been a very busy week and I can't find my black jeans which I would need for the concept I sketched out. Hopefully this weekend.

I'll be setting up shop at the WFMU Record Fair in Greenpoint at the Brooklyn Expo Center on April 26th to 28th.

I'll be selling these amazing one-of-a-kind handmade, numbered, limited edition (10 of each title) 7" records:

There will also be handmade copies of my book "How I Made Seven Albums in Eleven Months" with never-before-seen photographs and I will have some digital box sets housed in framed photos by Brooklyn based photographer Adalena Kavanagh.

I hope you'll stop by, take some selfies, and buy some stuff. Looking forward to seeing you there!

10 Hotels I Would Like To Have Sex In

I woke up to this horoscope :

Monday 22, July The Sun moves into Leo today, lighting up your house of sex and intimacy for the next month. Explore your desires without holding back, Capricorn. People think of you as one of the more conservative signs, but that's because they haven't experienced your full, unbridled self - let that part of you shine for the next month.
I didn't feel like it was remotely accurate. I'm currently struggling with everything internally after being diagnosed with high blood pressure last week. Food has been the only thing that consistently made me happy the last few years and I've had to drastically change my diet overnight. Additionally I'm still basically living in isolation. I made more of an effort lately to invite people to do things with mixed results. An informal poll on instagram revealed that out of 70 people, only five would date me, and most of those were men (I'm straight). My days have been a mix of depression napping, …

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I know there are supposedly real dates that correspond to the seasons but generally June 1st - August 31st is just what I call summer. Since I'm not bound by any of the constrictions other people might have like school, summer Fridays, wedding season, spending the time with my family at a lake (which is one of the strangest things normies do IMO), or anything else, I just go with June through August because back in New York those were the warmish months with sun.

While my summer was full of the usual existential dread and misery, there were a bunch of high points (I think). I have no clue what I did this summer, so let's go back and look at the photos and see.

June 2nd -

Matt was here visiting and he took me to Dan Tana's (and then checked it off the list)

June 3rd - The banner went up on the marquee for my first full length show (which ate up most of June I think)

June 6th - Went to see Scott Kannberg play at the Bootleg Theater. My first time at the venue and my first ti…
