For Laura's birthday, she wanted to gift Invisible Children with a jingle. That's awesome! Invisible Children is an amazing organization started by 3 San Diego dudes that went over to Africa with a video camera and came back with opened eyes, changed hearts, and a mission: to tell the world of the LRA's capturing and brainwashing of children into soldiers and to help the Ugandans any way they could. Since their beginnings in 2003, their story has been told to millions across the world and has already helped change the history of Uganda, but there's still much to do, including permanently ending the LRA's reign of terror, help millions of displaced refugees back to their homes, and educating the next generation. If you want to help make Laura's birthday that much more special, please check out Invisible Children, look for ways you can help, and get the word out by telling your friends, family, and people you meet on the bus about IC! Lyrics Invisible, Invisible Children Open your eyes and you will see them Invisible, Invisible Children Open your heart and see them There's a rebel army in Uganda That no own wants to be a part of The only way they can recruit is To attack defenseless villages and capture its kids In '03 three guys from San Diego Discovered this injustice and couldn't let it go They filmed their story for a movie Hoping that it would move you and move me They formed Invisible Children to tell the world And show what we can do to save those boys and girls So now that you have heard the truth What are you going to do?

So let me tell you about a man. A man named Marty. Marty King. He's turning 58 today! Wow! He's one of the coolest guys I know. Not just because he's my dad. But because he's an awesome dad. And husband (to my mom), and father-in-law, and grandpa, and cook, and engineer, and teacher, and cook, and chef, and cook. Hope you like the song, Pops! PS - We shot the song in only one take. Heath, the little guy, was getting too hot and had to go inside. Not sure if the heat was from the weather or those blazing harmonica solos! Lyrics Hey Marty, you're the King It's more than just your name, so listen up, I'll tell you what I mean Your wife, Mary Beth, says that you're the best And a super dad, Julie and I can attest K and J think you're an awesome father-in-law And heath always loves to play with you, his Papa And not to mention you've got some other skills You're always working hard so you can pay the bills With your jobs you have always excelled From the JJ, Motorola, and the Baxter to the ATL You've moved up the ladder to a dream career Getting paid to fly to Munich and drink their beer And and not to mention the food you cook,Lookout Betty Crocker, if you ever ever write a book! From the hummus to the bread to the yearly sazitza From the pico de gallo to the Marty King's pizza From the chicken of the land and the salmon of the sea From taking a steak and smoking it for jerky Hey Marty, you're the King!

So let me tell you a story about Duane. Duane meets a beautiful girl named Heidi. He thinks Heidi is pretty swell and asks her out on a date. He asks her if she's played golf before, to which Heidi responds, "Oh yes." So Duane's pretty stoked. She's hot... AND she golfs? Wowza. So they play 18 holes on their first date. Turns out that Heidi actually hadn't played golf before (maybe she thought he was talking about putt-putt), and she was horrible. Duane told me he'd never seen such a bad swing. But what he couldn't understand was how Heidi could make such a bad swing look so good. So he decided to keep his eye on her to try to figure her out. Fast forward to now: I'm not sure if Heidi's a better golfer, but Duane's decided to keep his eye on her for the rest of their lives as they're getting married tomorrow in Florida! Congrats you two! To celebrate, Duane commissioned me to write this song about how lucky he is to have her... or was it how lucky she is to have him? Maybe it'd be better if you just watch the video. Enjoy! Lyrics Oh Heidi, Duane loves you so Give him your hand and he'll never let you go Oh Heidi, Duane's happy to be Sharing life with you his cutie What is that makes him love you so? He loves you more that you'll ever know Since that first date on the course with the number 3 wood He'd never seen such a bad swing look so good He loves how you always seem to be in a good mood, Maybe it's because you always make such great food, Although you take awhile to get ready, it's always worth the wait When you look that beautiful, he forgets about being late Is it your laughter that he's after or the sparkle in those big, green eyes Or how your leg-shaking dance makes him laugh until he cries Duane feels so lucky To finally meet his match After all you've heard him kareokee You both know he's quite a catch! Oh Duane, Heidi loves you so Give her your hand and she'll never let you go Oh Duane, Heidi's happy to be Sharing life with you her cutie

To Josh Roberts: Happy 30th birthday! I hope you have a great day! I hope that you enjoy all your birthday surprises, including this little treat from your wife! Your wife loves you very much. On the jingle order form, she wrote about 3x more about you than anyone's ever written on an order form. The Dayton Charity Chicken was a distant second. But anyways, I hope you know that you're a really lucky guy. Not only do you have a loving wife, but you have great friends and family who love you. I had a blast including some of your friends' favorite quotes and other things about you, such as Turn and Burn, the Evil Knievel quote (I doubt I'll ever learn where THAT came from!), the Dukes of Hazard, the Amish beard, and so much more. I don't know if this song will make sense to anyone other than you or your friends, but that doesn't matter. It's all for you, buddy. To everyone else: what do you think? Do you like the song, or is it just too full of random quotes that you're just totally confused? Why is it by a lake? Why was I wearing a dress shirt? So many questions... Lyrics Chorus Everybody loves Josh Everybody loves Josh today Everybody loves Josh And if you don't then you're just crazy Since Josh Is the coolest guy around Everybody everybody loves Josh Verse 1 What is it that makes you so cool? That every time I see you, I go gigigigidee gooo? Is it that you dress sharp as a tack By the way Evil Knievel called, and he wants his shirt back Maybe it was that Amish beard Or that you're the best fisherman here? Or that you can turn and burn on the soccer field Riding on those calves of steel Verse 2 12 years you have been with Yeva, And her love for you is stronger than ever! You are her love and inspiration And you make heading home her favorite destination At Lexis Nexis you're the tech master For troubleshooting software, no one's faster So feel free to watch some Dukes when you're feeling lazy Just one question, who'd you pretend was Daisy?

So Sarah's been living the life. Two little kids, Antwone and Harmony, and an awesome husband, Chad. A few months ago, she and Chad probably had a conversation that went something like this: Sarah: Baby, life is so good! Chad: Aw, yeah! Sarah: Could our life get any better? Chad: Hmmm... let me see. Ooh, I have an idea! Sarah: What is it, Cheese? (Chad's nickname) Chad: What if there were MORE of us? Wouldn't more family be more fun? Sarah: Yeah, that's it! You're a genius! Let's throw some Miracle Grow on our family tree and sprout another branch (refering to the exanding family tree)! Chad: That's what I'm talking about! Sarah/Chad: ... So there you have it. Little baby girl Shields is coming to a hospital near you early this summer, so stay tuned! P.S. - Sarah's a big fan of country, so I mustered up all my country might and put it all into this one song. For all you fans, I tried to go a little Josh Turner on it. Hope you like! Lyrics It was just a few months ago late late late one night Most of us had already hit the hay and turned off the light But Chad and Sarah were celebrating putting their kids to bed They said hey, we can handle two, let's do three instead! You, you, you, you, You're adding to your family somebody new So many things to look forward to When it's you, you, you, you and you What happened that night was something special, or call it Destiny Joining Antwone and Harmony will soon be baby #3 So coming up soon, maybe May or June, she'll be coming into the world Mommy and daddy just can't wait to see their baby girl!

The last three weeks, I've had the pleasure of working with the Machine Learning for Signal Processing Group at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. If you noticed that the settings seemed a bit different on some of my previous videos, you were right! I was couchsurfing (google it!) in Pittsburgh the last three weeks. But anyways, back to the MLSP. The MLSP is led by Bhiksha Raj and Rita Singh, and is part of the Language Technology Institute at CMU, which is regarded as pretty much the TOP place for language technology in the world.

Jenni "with an 'I'" Rowe is celebrating her 21st birthday today. Happy birthday, girl! As you can tell from the song, she's a pretty fun-loving gal. A few bonus tidbits about her that you didn't get from the song: she's studying hotel management at UNLV, she's half-Japanese, and I THINK she's a really amazing cook, though I'm not 100% sure. If you can confirm or deny this fact, please let me know. One last point for all the fellas - she's single :-) Lyrics Jenni with an "I" Happy birthday Jenni, you're turning 21 Today's your special day, let's do something fun Let's list all your favorite things to help you choose Let's do them all girl, you just can't lose We could tie dye your entire outfit Or just sit at home eating chocolate We could go to that Starbucks that isn't very far And crank up the tunes and sing in the iCar We could look at all the hotels while driving down the strip Or take you to that classy bar for your first boozy sip We'll stay away from milk, since you two have a history Why your sister did that to you will always be a mystery We could have breakfast for breakfast, lunch and dinner, And if we played some karaoke hero, I know you'll be the winner Whatever makes you happy, whatever makes you smile Let's do every single thing one million things an hour

Today's jingle is about a man. A man named Jonathan. This is his second year of Buckeye-hood, and he's decided to pursue a business degree when he's not playing video games. And he's a huge fan of NPR, especially The Diane Ream Show, Car Talk, Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me and the BBC news. Yeah! Keep rockin' to NPR, man! Lyrics Jonathan, stay true to who you are Jonathan, keep rockin' to NPR! How's it going at OSU, are you liking your business degree? Keep working hard, but remember sometime to take it easy. The Diane Ream Show, Car Talk, Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me and BBC news Nothing like a little NPR to clear your study blues Just wanted to tell you a few things before I go Your family loves you and it ain't no show Just find what you love, one life's all you got The world turns on variety, so go out and give it a shot!

NOTE - This video was actually recorded and edited by Career Tech Program students at Fairmont High School. Way to go! Did you notice anything different about this jingle than most? Did it seem like I actually had a production crew, instead of my sole tripod companion? Well, I did! I recorded today's jingle at Fairmont High School in their TV/radio production studio. Yes, they have a studio at FHS. Today's jingle is about the Career Tech Program at Fairmont High School in the Daytonian suburb of Kettering, in which the production studio is a part of. I had a great time working with the teachers and students during my taped interview (for morning announcements), a taped performance of their jingle (what you see here today), and then returning to ANOTHER live interview about 2 minutes later airing on both radio and television. Whew, what a busy day! If you're going to Fairmont High School or will be in the future, you'd be a tool if you didn't take advatage of their Career Tech Program. Let me break it down for you, bullet-point style: - Fields include TV/radio production, health, architecture/construction, mechanical engineering, computer programming, bio-engineering, and automotive, and more! - You actually get FREE college credit from these programs - If you want to go to Sinclair afterward graduating highschool as a springboard to a 4-year degree, they'll give you a $3k scholarship, making Sinclair almost completely free Lyrics available at yourdailyjingle.com

This is a classic story of boy meets girl, boy marries girl, girl gets pregnant on their 1st anniversary, boy and girl have bugs in their food during their 2nd anniversary, boy and girl take it easy since girl is 8 months pregnant during their 3rd anniversary (do you see a theme arising here?), ... an today boy and girl are celebrating their 4th anniversary. Happy A Day, Jason and Rachel Wing! They love the Wedding Singer, so I tried to give the song a bit of that vibe. Hope all you lovebirds out there enjoy! Lyrics Happy anniversary to Jason and Rachel Wing It was just four years ago when they exchanged the rings Anniversary number one was a cruise on the Caribbean Having a great time swimming and lounging in the sun But their favorite activities were enjoyed in their little cabin During which they made themselves a little souvenir they named Reagan, Anniversary number two was a trip down memory lane They repeated their first date up to Troy, but it wasn't the same 'cause this time at La Piazza there were lady bugs in their dish So they ended up at the Outback Steakhouse to finally get something delish Anniversary number three Rachel was pregnant again This time with a little dude they like to call Gideon So they stayed at home and they cooked and ate Nothing wild and crazy here didn't even go to sleep very late Anniversary number four they are celebrating today I don't really know what they're doing but that's really okay I'm betting they're having as much fun as can be And in a few months we'll know if they made a Little Wing number 3

Did you know that on average, 17,700 people are walking on the Los Vegas Strip at any given hour on any given day, and up to 40,000 during peak times? My buddy Dan, a.k.a. the Stripwalker, does, which is why he sells his upper body 6 days/week on the strip (http://www.stripwalker.com/index.html). So if you want to get the word out about something and jingles aren't your thing, you can book the Stripwalker. Here's how it works. Let's say you buy January 31st. If you send him $31 and a t-shirt, he'll walk all around the strip (from Mandalay Bay to the Fashion Show Mall and back while wearing your t-shirt -- up one side of the Strip and down the other) on January 31st. On the day you bought, he'll also post a video and photos of his escapades. You can even track his location via GPS (http://www.stripwalker.com/gps.html). Even though the GPS thing reminds me a little of Enemy of the State, I gotta admit it's pretty cool :-) And if you're ever in Vegas, would you track him down and tell him hi from me? Thanks! Lyrics Stripwalker, Stripwalker, walkin' 'round Vegas Let met tell you 'bout a man named Dan Stripwalkin' is part of his plan Walkin' the Vegas Strip every day With a different shirt someone throws his way So instead of writing jingles His shirt does the talking while he mingles With the thousands of people he sees Makin' some money while burning calories You should check his url stripwalker.com will entertain you well Checkin out his photo or his latest press Or even track him down with his GPS If you're looking to advertise A stripwalker campaign would be wise Plus he’s a really nice guy So next time you're in Vegas, go say hi

Important: Watch the video before reading this! . . . . So hopefully you actually heeded this warning, wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for you ;-) Andrew and Noelle Brown are making a baby! Technically, I guess Andrew's done his main part, so the baby's incubating inside Noelle's belly at this very minute! She's 12 weeks along which means little Baby "BB" Brown will be making his/her grand entrance around August 3rd. So exciting! If you want lend a helping hand, I hear Noelle's been craving supreme pizza like it's going out of style. Now would be a great time to start speaking in high voices to Noelle's belly and offering name advice. They didn't tell me that last part specifically, but I know them quite well. When you see them, tell little BB that Brian says hi! Lyrics Let me tell you 'bout a story with Andrew And a fine lady named Noelle They'd been married for almost six years And things were going quite well... however They had each other But they felt like something's missing So one looked at the other And started kissing And yada yada yada... Although that night of passion Just twelve weeks ago this day You might not know by looking yet They're worlds have changed In just a few months Near August third Their eyes will be on the sky Looking for that great bird Flying into town And swooping down with Baby Brown Oh Baby Brown is coming to town

The Challenge: Hi Stan at http://www.marketinglagniappe.com/. I saw that you bought a jingle from Mr. Love Jingles (http://www.lovejingles.com), currently one of the five most-popular Swedish jinglers. He's alright, but I think that I can write a jingle for you that will blow him and his Gulsparv Partners-owned jingles away. That's right, Stan, a jingle-off. You see I have also been writing jingles every day since January first at yourdailyjingle. Love and I have some similarities, but I have some distinct advantages: 1. Would you like actually use the jingle you paid for? I'm happy to send you the video and MP3 you bought. Not so with the GP. 2. How about the knowledge that your purchase of a jingle is actually helping the world? Although I'm just a poor grad student trying to make ends meet and hoping to write some jingles to help pay down my and my wife's student loans, a lower-class American like me is already better off than much of the world, and I'm passionate about helping others in need. To achieve this goal, I'm giving 20% of everything made on the site to charities chosen by popular vote. But I guess none of that matters if I can't write epic jingles. So here's what I propose. I will reserve January 27th free of charge for you, and then we can let the world decide with a vote who the Supreme Jingler is - the Swedish corporate branch of Love Jingles, or the American starving musician/grad student at yourdailyjingle? I don't have any marketing/production/songwriting teams on my side, in fact usually just me and my tripod, but I'm willing to put my skills on the line and let the world decide who will will be crowned the World's Favorite Daily Jingler!

So when I saw that the Dayton Charity Chicken bought today's jingle, I didn't quite know what to think. Now, after meeting the DCC, I'm still not quite sure what to think. But what I DO know is that the DCC is one bird who gets around. It's favorite activity is participating in races, and since the Jingle Bell Run for arthritis back in 2002, it has been spotted at the Diabetes Walk 5k, Relay for Life, Ghost N Goblin 5k, Multiple Sclerosis 8k, breast cancer fundraisers, an epilepsy walk in the Fairfield Commons Mall, and events for Go Red for Women at The Greene. So next time you're at a race, keep your eyes peeled because you'll likely have a chicken in your midst. One thing I DO know is that the chicken loves people and helping others, which is pretty neat! Also, if you're having an event that you'd like to invite the DCC to be a part of, let me know and I can get you two in contact. Finally, if you happen to see the DCC around town, say "put your wings up and flap 'em in the air, flap 'em around like you just don't care" and see what happens. I guarantee you it'll be worth it ;-) Lyrics Let me tell you 'bout a chicken I know Dayton Charity Chicken How did you grow as tall as the dickens? Where did you come from, where do you go? Please answer me, does anybody know? Wherever you came from, you should feel lucky You'd be bucket of wings if you grew up in Kentucky I can see it in your eyes that you're happy to be free And that is why you live for charity! Whenever there's a race in town You put on your skates and roll on down From the Relay of Life for to the Goblin 5k From the Go Red for Women to the walk for diabetaaaaaaaaaes You pull off you skates, and you walk and you run, Who knew that helping others could be so fun! And after a race, there's no feed in site So you reach for latte and a bag of bagel bites! To all the chickies out there Put your wings up and flap 'em in the air Flap 'em around like you just don't care Flap 'em around like you just don't care
