i was lucky to have this incredible mentor when i was 19.  not only was it a woman but she was close to 60 years old at the time.  i met her the day i walked into her class in my 2nd year of college.  she only taught that one class because she owned a legendary recording and rehearsal studio.  she was also a political columnist writing with a jewish nom de plume because "she always wanted to be jewish".  i'll skip stating her name because of part of the story.  these teachers were different.  they didn't walk the those that can do & those that can't teach cliche.  my music business instructor was the president of capitol records at the time so when these people spoke i REALLY listened.

the female teacher i had mentioned 1st was not only one of my favorite teachers of all-time but she is/was one of my all-time favorite people as well....simply put one of the coolest mother fuckers i have ever met with an articulate tongue like a god damn merciless razor to match.  it's funny now that i think about it the one unpopular teacher that everyone hated didn't like her & would even say so often.  pretty telling.  i can only imagine now that he probably wanted to fuck her & she probably ignored him or better yet maybe she verbally bitch slapped his ass.  i wish i would have asked because she would have told me yet another priceless story. 

after she was my instructor i got to know her better.  no not like THAT.  there wasn't any teacher fucks student scenario.  basically she was just honest with me in that i know i REALLY got to know her.  when did i find out most of these things ???  while we were hanging out at her place getting high.  yes weed.  mary jane.  reefer.  the pot.  

i was part of a small elite club with this woman.  i know this because the last student she let in like that was about 5-6 years older than me......an impressive female as well who assured me that i "won the golden ticket" & went on & on about how much she loved this teacher.  it's cool that they're still business partners to this day.

so back to her.........

keep in mind that what i'm about to type came from the mind & mouth of a woman who had been married to her soul mate for over 40 years.  to this day i can't say i've ever met a more perfect couple as far as seemless compliment of one another.  i would have guessed they were twins separated at birth if i didn't know the story. 


i was thinking today about one of the many great conversations we had.  one day she was going off about this whole "don't let some stupid little bitch girl trap you with the petty offering of real life bullshit" (or something to that extent)  she advised me to keep a close eye on the ways people will deliberately misuse concepts like "security" & "normal" to trap people like me into doing what THEY want me to do....not because it's what's best for me but because that might be one of the only ways they'll get me to stick around if i'm really GOING somewhere....anywhere in this life.....& at any time within it to boot.  she stressed how everyone has a different timeline & journey.  i specifically remember her citing what a great much more respected career Dan Akroyd had evolved into mainly after he'd gained a bunch of weight as well as an older appearance which allowed people to forget the SNL guy who used to star in B-list movies like Dr Detroit & move up the ladder to Driving Miss Daisy.  she said "giving up jokes for that man would have been like a bimbo giving up her tits if he didn't have any talent....but he did so......"

she was basically talking about how there's no right or wrong path but the one you're supposed to be on.....but make sure you're on it because you can get really REALLY lost on any detour.

         :: SITE UPDATED ::  Nov 16 2018

   new LPs & EPs are here 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

what can i say = LISTEN TO THE SONGS.  push all the short attention span theater shit to the side and LISTEN. music is embedded all over this site.  let the albums & EPs play from start to finish.  they are not just collections of random songs. also my music is for that end of the night nightcap in headphones not background for the party.  i suggest you approach it that way & engage it in that setting and the rest is up to you.

 

if you are looking for predictable simpleton drivel meant to appease empty Ameri-con trash you are in the wrong place i assure you.  the bulk of your friends list on Facebook will help you out if that is the mirror you seek. click that red link now and get your worthless tacky ass out of here QUICKLY.

 

i seek no press.  this website is receiving traffic from 100+ countries every month through word-of-mouth only.  there's no Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or any of the other predictable whoring.  besides the United States the traffic has been incredible from Germany, France, Russia, UK, Italy, Australia, Canada, China, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Poland, Hungary, Sweden, Finland, Chile, and The Netherlands.  i want to thank all of you especially along with everyone else for listening, visiting, and whatever else.

 

my previous releases before the ones linked above are as follows: Chapter One was released May 18th 2013.  the Mrs. Produkt EP was released March 2nd 2013 & Der Schnitt was released February 9th 2013.  please go purchase them & support independence. you can name your price.  if you're broke put in $0 and take it for free with no strings attached.  i do not want your email.  i do not give a fuck about your "like".  i do not want to contact you.  what i want is for you to LISTEN.  click on any album cover to show you where you can download them.  COOL ??????????

 

  

 

 

BOTTOM FEEDER: THE SOCIALITE was released December 15th 2012.  this was my 6th full length album in 2012.  10 new tracks.

 

and this ever-evolving collection of covers is always FREE. click her to show you where you can download it now.

 

 

music as an industry is going to continue to reside in the gutter until more of you start caring for it properly again.  it's so PURR-fect that the Ameri-con way has sold so many on the notion that it's pointless to drop $10 on music but don't worry about doing the same thing at McDonald's a few times a week for glorified dog food.  that's COMPLETELY normal.

 

for now i only deal with Bandcamp because unlike iTunes i can keep it donation based.  i also deal with Bandcamp because they are the coolest & best company selling digital music on the web right now and they are aiding the cause not hurting it like iTunes.  PERIOD.  Bandcamp will covert your payment from almost any currency imaginable and you can get better quality downloads from them as well. you're not just helping me you're helping so many others including the audience of any genre outside the pathetic and predictable mainstream industry that is as marginal and washed up as it has ever been.  i can not be more honest than that.

  

yes this site is 1st and foremost about my music but it is also about many of the other things that i love OR hate and anything else i feel like in between.  if you search through the menu you will find all of my (currently available) releases.  but you will also find some of my paintings & photography.

 

the Journals & Written Word links in the menu above are loaded with my writing.  i am constantly updating it as well as every other section of this site.

 

up above in this column check the date of the last update underneath my picture.  it will always be extremely current GUARANTEED.  as part of the audience i know music/band sites for the most part are PAINFULLY BORING, infrequently updated, & lacking content so i hope to present something much more interesting & extensive.  i guarantee that every day you return here you can/will find something new.

 

i'm a complete hermit by nature so 99% of you will most likely never get to know me in person anyway so here's a virtual part of me instead.
