Boy, Girl, You, You're lovely

 You ever get your heart hurt so dog gone bad? Like really bad? Where it seems like every single mistake in your entire life is contained and repeated inside the latest romantic car crash you were involved in? Well honey, you were in a heartquake.
 If you didn't catch that, it was a reference to Kurt Vonnegut's 1997 novel, Timequake. Now, I'm not going to take the time to explain the plot as it somewhat resembles spaghetti. You'll have to do that for yourself.  I don't write about Italian food.

 Sometimes romance gone wrong is like your own personal little why-am-I-missing-all-of-my-teeth-now rodeo, right? And then you make a resolution to only date Praying Manti from now on.

Cut out the bullshit and get right to the head-eating.

You never did? Lets not argue.

 Look, life isn't simple, but what you need to know about it is simple. You're a lovely machine. You are. Yeah, I know. I didn't think we were going to end up here either.

Long Fires, George Harrisons

In 1987 George Harrison released a song that took the world by storm. Perhaps it was because he went all out pop like he hadn't done before, or perhaps it's because he taught an entire house how to dance.

Now I Love that song, I really do. But I have to say that as far as accomplishments in the life of George Harrison go, waking a house from its pre-sentient slumber, educating it about biology, the socialization of animal species (including human mating rituals), and then teaching it- a house- how to do the Chalreston ranks a little bit higher than another pop song trying to get somebody's dick wet. And it was a Fantastic Charleston, not the fumbling, pretend Charlestons you're used to seeing from the likes of parrots and toddlers.

With admiration and respect I think on how the house was also tending a fire in its chimney, hosting a camera crew, and providing George a worthy chair.

But what does this have to do with me? You might ask. Well I'm not here to answer your questions.
The other night though, man. Me and a bottle of absinthe were watching that moose head dance on the wall and I got to thinking: 'the fridge and the microwave are really diggin' this. Shit, 'the dryer's starting to hum.' So I took another swig from the bottle and jammed out a piece in honor of Mr. Harrison's attempt to get into some high class pants.

Lets Get Coffee

Hello there internet. It's me, ttypes. It's been a long time and it's really good to see you.
But before we catch up I've got some news! I have a website now: And you can even find a link back to this blog on it. Among other things.

Remember Pawl? || || We work together sometimes.
Well right now we've got a full length collaborative album in the works.
We've been at it for a year and a half! And between you and me, we'll probably be working on it for another year. But please don't despair, it will be worth it. I promise.
Teaser: there's a song about aliens on it.

Also, if you haven't heard, I've been collaborating with the amazingly talented rapper Landon Wordswell.
If you've never heard of him go check out his bandcamp:
We've released a song already! :
More to come soon.

What about the Gentlemen of Leisure? Heard of them before?
Well they're working on their debut album, and I'm going to be on it. But honestly, good luck finding them on the internet right now. Though you could check out the work of Chris Blount- - one of the founding members of the group and the main rapper on my track Whose Streets?

Then there's this chap Lykaire I've been talking to. He does indie edm, is pretty dope and stuff, and he and his pal Ghost Bed are working on an album and I'm gonna be on that too. They'd be much obliged if you checked out their music: ||
I'm not getting paid for posting these links, I'm just a nice guy.

Aaaaaanddd: I've started a live demos series on youtube. Go check out my youtube channel! And stay tuned for more on that soon.

Ok, phew. I just had to get that off my chest. Thanks for listening internet.

But how are you doing? Did you finally quit that job? Does your dog still have heartworm?
Is your little brother's garment thing working out?

Really? That's good to hear.

Yeah, the weather has been crazy. Have you seen those clouds lately? Aren't they a little bigger than usual? It could just be me.

Well, it was good to see you, internet. We should really do this again. Good luck with your new job! Oh sure, I'll let her know. Ciao.

Throughout 2011 as I read and watched the news I was enraged and dismayed at the violence used against protesters out in the open, in the streets, across the world- much the same is today. When Occupy blossomed I became inspired, it was my country now, and I watched in horror as American law enforcement responded with violent authoritarianism- we had become a police state. I didn't know what else to do so I started writing this song. Born out of anger it has ballooned into something larger over time and collaboration. It's a muck-raking hip-hop rant with hyperlinks expounding: it's a pop pamphlet.

Whose streets? Our streets. I'm on the ave. with the 99 behind me. 
They up at the top of the building havin' a crime spree.
We pay checks from endin' up on the concrete.
You're not alone we fightin' to keep our homes while 
Companies do us wrong through policy of a loan. 
We in the war zone and they're buying predator drones 
And want us to sit at home in awe watchin' the throne.
Politicians try to tell you what they ain't got,
The government and big banks in the same pot.
I guess it's all in how you view it like an ink blotch
Lean right or left we're still standin' in the same spot.
Broken economy but check the facts: 
they knew it all along back at Goldman Sachs.
B of A took the money from the homes they jacked
And the one percent paid off of all of that.

Come on- brothers and sisters West to East
Don't let these corporate suit and ties disrespect the streets
Lets be more than outsiders with an angry speech
It's time to occupy, speak your peace, let's go!

The Everest casino, the biggest, the greatest
Fixed up in every way so the richest can take us
All the way to the bank and back up to congress
Then up to the white house and justice lodges.
It's the golden age of cash just ask the dodgers
No baseball money- first string accountants.
The new Olympic sport 'tax loophole slalom'-
Weavin' in and out of those wall street columns.
The new feudal lords blame us for the problem,
Well ya'll morally aligned with Smeagol Gollum.
If you could look at yourself through the 99's eyes
Would you cry, could you cry at your malice and lies?

[Heaven, the rich don't get in.
Who said that? Jesus, remember him?
The truth is heavy and their lies are thin
but the corporate media is in line with their spin.]

Power, fame, money, one world religion. 
Everybody disarm til you have a vision. 
Brothers and sisters West to East, 
Come on and bring peace to the streets.

Feudal lords, feudal lords, feudal lords, draw your swords.

Wachovia, Wachovia 320 billion 
running like the mafia- Italians and Sicilians.
Laundered money for the cartels making killins'-
No really, no joke, literally a killin'.
Bank profits worth about the thousand times the
fine that the politicians billed em': United States of Crime.

Political distorted documented reports of 
funding Mexican gangs with guns right on the border.

Gimme more and more of disoriented vision.
The blood in the streets is the product of the system.
They privatize the prison to profit that's the mission.
The money from the poor feeds the one world religion.
It's clear they want you out in the cold and uneducated,
emasculated, it's time to make a statement.
Wall Street was gettin' over now it's time for payment.
It's time to occupy and pound the pavement.

Come on- brothers and sisters West to East
don't let these corporate suit and ties disrespect the streets
lets be more than outsiders with an angry speech
it's time to occupy, speak your peace, let's go!
