“Der Traschenmaus” otherwise known as I am a total weirdo.

Yes, sometimes my husband and I make odd things. We made this faux-animated faux-opera. The whole thing probably evolved from the fact that we call rats trash-squirrels to make them seem less disgusting when our dogs try to chase them.

Our friends Cailin Sandvig, Salley Koo, and Alex Solomon helped us to compose and play the music. A guest appearance from my friend Matty Oaks as Der Traschenmaus.

This is a deeply odd mixup of the Persephone fable and a just so story about trash pickup days. Yes, it predates any knowledge of Hadestown.
