I keep hearing the my latest video is fun, playful, and positive (despite the subject). I also hear “The music has been in my head all day!” and “You two are Adorbs.” I also do pretty good Shaggy and Scooby Doo voices near the end.

Take a musical peek inside of our San Francisco lives during the Great Global Shutdown of Spring 2020.

I had the idea for this song within a day or two of our San Francisco Mayor’s “Shelter in Place” announcement. The first thing I noticed were all the families biking, skating, jogging, and having outdoor fun all over our Great SAN FRANCISCO. I also found that the busiest business parts of San Francisco (including by my old Google office on the embarcadero) were nearly deserted. Super Creepy!

I made this song and video happen just in time for the Global Re-opening. Best wishes to everyone who is ready to get their hopes and dreams moving again — fast!

Thank you all for watching, and please say hello in the comments! Stay safe and healthy, and remember to get out there and shelter in places every day!

See what i did there? I redefined “sheltering.” You will not forget the song.

“Sheltering in Places” LYRICS
Sheltering in Places, Sheltering in in Places,
Sheltering in in Places with you.
(It’s all that I want to do)

Shut down, means we get around
to the places that make us smile
Lock down, means we hit the town
and see all the places we haven’t seen in a while
(that’s right, ha ha, sheltering in places)

Venturing out and sheltering in places with you
Venturing out and sheltering in COOL places with you

It’s like we all answered the call
to be extras on the set of a disaster movie
and we all, have a part to play in this masquerade

It’s like we all answered the call
to be actors on a dystopian sitcom
and we all, have a price to pay in this masquerade

Venturing out and sheltering in places with you
Venturing out and sheltering in COOL places with you

It’s all that I want to do!
