Twin Lens Reflex

I wanted to write a song about Black Lives Matter because the history books are going to show how important that movement is / has been. I also love the “Two Tone” ska movement in the 80’s in the UK and reggae and ska in general. Its music that is very positive and upbeat, which is more powerful than more anthemic or sharp pointed…

This Machine Kills Pumpkin Pie

I dedicate smashing the orange pumpkin with this pumpkin smashing machine. A nod to Woody Guthrie and his fascist killing machine!

Thank God for Woody Guthrie

What I love so much about Woody Guthries’ lyrics is that he lays out the irony and dichotomy of what truth is in a way where you will be humming along with the great “Americana” sound – maybe even think its some patriotic song – and then you stop and say “Holy Shit” when you catch what he is saying.

Turkey Trot

Well, well, well, ol’ Fat Turkey Loser Trump just really, really lost the election. The GSA just released funds for Team Biden-Harris. Here is my celebration song:

Silent Night, STARRY NIGHT

Thanksgiving will be full of thanks this year. Even with the pandemic – the promise of a vaccine looms large – and when I say loom – this time its a good thing!

Liberty Train

This year, more than any in my life, I’m thankful that while our democracy has been put to the test by a totally incompetent wannabe dictator, that he and his henchmen seem to have been foiled. Liberty trainBroken chainsSmashed oppressionFreedom reigns Deposed KingDeposed QueenClear the courtOf all the Jesters New day wakingFascism quakingNo more takenAdvantage of

At the time I had an impressive home brewed directional phased antenna system (my Ham Radio callsign is KY6R) – because several stronger stations were on the same frequency. Spoiled rotten childrenAlways want their wayWhen Father Krampus arrivesHe’ll have…

A PSALM OF THANKSGIVING

Like the Autumnal Winds – which blow the beautiful colored fall leaves off the trees, our American Democracy just withstood one of the worst 4 years in the history of our nation, but today that has all changed for the better.

Hope Satellite

Satellite of Hope in These Covid Times Hope is all we have right now. Round and round we go Round the Planet we Glow Sewing seeds of forgotten Hope Helping those in need to cope End the reign of divisiveness Put our country to the test Do what we do best End this terror of selfishness Evil loses in the end Peace and Love…
