on the subject of Mental Illness

Hey I know everyone is finally talking about the subject of Mental Illness right now as a result of Robin William’s suicide. I want to tell everyone in advance that what I am about to say is railing against the media institutions. For years now, I have watched the news, over and over again say a DERANGED MENTALLY ILL GUNMAN KILLS so and so over and over, increasing the stigma patients feel to levels that I would say raise the SHUNNING of []

Don’t Bring Down ( E L O cover)

I am sorry but this song reminds me of the 1970’s AM Radio. Yeah, not FM radio. We could not pick up FM radio. We had 3 channels on television. Rotary phones. Anyway Electric Light Orchestra was always on the radio. I think this song is a gas. It is kinda funny to me so this is my silly rendition. God bless jeff lynn!

a couple of words on the fool’s moon tune

Hey guys! I would like feedback, attention, whatever on the last posts here. This “fool’s moon” project started 14 years ago. This song came out spontaneously from me in the spring of 2000, came right out of the ether. I laid it down and mixed it to 4 tracks. Then , when I realized its personal meaning to me, I promptly tried to obliterate my mind in a haze. It worked. About 12 years later, I digitally remastered it. I have had []

FOOL’S MOON

“Fool’s Moon” Maybe we’ll get together on a fool’s moon. Maybe we’ll trust each other on a fool’s moon and dance in the graveyard, play in the graveyard till we’re Gone.

Traveling down a gravel road not a soul in sight. Someplace, sometime, somebody’s in love. Smile for awhile. And []

I remember the fishing went bad that year. Tim said to try to hunt with a spear. But none of that really mattered. It all could just float away. blue blue blue isis And she rocked and she rolled. She did not care if she lived or []

“Goin’ Down” lyrics/music/video/performance by giffin

Walk around innocent, dumb, and blind With the veil turned down I am not alive. Never asked who I am, who I am who are you, what I do And I just don’t know I am goin’ down. My life. March thru time I’m looking for the truth Asked the wrong questions and got confused. I’m as wise as the bum sittin’ on the street Askin’ for change/ gettin’ somethin’ to eat. AND I HAVE BEEN THERE! Goin’ Down. Slick pretty faces []
