Video: " Ode to a Missing Cat: Little Jerry"


Being the rabid Josh Leo groupies that we are, Brad and I were watching his recent Vlogging week posts and especially enjoyed the song he wrote on Day 6. We came up with the brilliant idea that I should "cover" this song and post it on our blog, so I started practicing. But as I did, something jumped out at me. I noticed that in one of the verses, he alludes to his cat- or rather, his former roomate's cat- Little Jerry Seinfeld- and mentions that he has been missing for ten days. This sad fact inspired me to go down a different musical road. And so, this song was born: "Ode to a Missing Cat: Little Jerry." Brad helped me write it.

So-- if you don't have a fast internet connection, please, please, please don't go through the agonies of waiting an hour for this thing to download...unless you really feel a deep need to join me in sending out good wishes to Little Jerry Seinfeld.

...Come home safely, Little Jerry. It would be a sad thing if the world lost you.

Aww!!! This is so freaking awesome! You did such a good job with everything, the guitar, the singing, the lyrics. This is pure gold, and made me a little sad...still no word on Jerry, but there is always hope. and if he never returns, I will get a kitten and tell him all about the great Little Jerry

Hi Claire,

Wow!
This is nice!

"Just incommunicado, Little Jerry!"

LOL. I LOVE that.

This is amazing, one a number of levels. Vlogging - Bringing people together.

If i was in college, it'd be my thesis, but since I'm not in college I'm going to have to go blog about it. But not before I subscribe to your blog.

Oh MY WORD Claire...Have you got lots of time on your hands or what? You are going to be famous if you don't watch it. Lexie told me this was too noisy, but I watched almost the whole thing!

Oh, my. Some day I will be able to say "I knew her when..." Well done!

Poor little Jerry. Maybe he will return several months from now which is what one of our cats did!

I almost didn't download the video, since you said don't "wait an hour." After reading everyone's raves, however, I did indeed wait 35 minutes for it, and it was worth it! Wow! Have you contacted the record companies yet?! :)

Linds said...
