about

I had lost this CD but then my friend Mark dug up his copy and let me have it.

I was a House Chair (kinda like an RA) at Bennington for 2 and a half years. One of the duties of a House Chair is to make name-tag-door-signs for everyone in the house. This happens prior to the start of the school year. There's a contest among all the House Chairs to see who can make the most creative door signs.

So one year, my door signs were songs. The students arrived with a CD attached to their door with their name on it. On the CD was a song about them.

One difficult thing was writing songs for the people I didn't know, i.e. the freshmen. I had to go off of these forms that they filled out about which house they wanted to be placed in based on thinks like whether they're clean or messy, quiet or loud, etc.
