#TheMexicanTaxi: Behind The Mexican C*ck
shooting the mexican cock for the mexican taxi network was snarf!
i was in liberation. har mar and chicken didn’t have to pretend; the acting was pure. their natural chemstree really let me focus on shotz.
“el casco de color naranja siempre me amo,” chicken confided in me (i always fall for the one in the orange helmet).…
Retrospective Reflector [Disquiet0051-audiojournal]
This is my 28th submission to the Junto. This is a mix of my work for the Junto and singles and demos I’ve released (and one not) this year. Thank you to everyone in the group for your generosity, friendship and acceptance. And a special Thank You! to Mark Weidenbaum of http://disquiet.com…
i shot @averagecabbage shot me
Upon landing in sayulita, mx’s international surfport for new years 08/09 and clearing a sleeping customs canine, @AverageCabbage and I had twin parallel urges to explore the airfield until the other 1/2 of our galactic retinue arrived on a later flight. So we devised a plan to avoid security (i.e.,…
crystal never hurts
a rock/pop song sneaks out from behind an ambient intro. what you never know never hurts.
crystal, I was truly blessed by that
necklace prism rainbow
splashed across your breast.
now look at the sky we made
and all the stars we named
they’re just goodbye songs.
what you never know never hurts
if we never meet again, rest assured.
#TheMexicanTaxi: Behind The Mexican Doctor
Cassette Kirtan [disquiet0049-deckduet]
Contact mic’ed a microcassette recorder (my only current working tape deck). Measured 86.48 BPM using the manual tempo tap on a Line6 POD-XT. Meditated over the lulling beat with a guitar. Pickups were thrown out-of-phase and then the guitar signal was sent through delay, auto-swell and phaser. There’s also a Paulstretched A-chord strum (24x) behind the track.…

Take #TheMexicanTaxi Outer Borough Car Service for a zipline. “Chicken?”
Just Like Midnight (video)
An old-fashioned heartbreak song off my 2011 record, married to 8mm home movie clips from the 1950s. The reels, recently re-discovered and converted, were shot by my grandfather, uncles and dad. You get 10 points if you can spot Morey Amsterdam.

wrote this in 1996 on a chicago to peoria drive.
shirley got electricity back in 1939
kept the milk from spoiling and rotting right there on the vine
just so happened when i drove through
shirley said she didn’t but i knew that she knew
all that power wasn’t flowing through the lines
normal had its heyday back in 1945
almost ½ the town had made it back ½ alive
and there was a house or two for every boy and girl
they had all just beaten back the enemy of that world
and all that government money made it easy to survive
the straightest shot became a straighter line
when 66 became 55
you can see it every time you go for a drive
66 became 55
mclean didn’t care for kennedy back in 1959
still, they circled chicago with a highway and called it the dan ryan
shirley & normal thought they’d never need another road
‘cause they said that 6 lane highway could carry any load
and shirley and normal forgot what it meant to stop at a light
66 became 55
they put a cyclone in the center of town
they fought for all those parking spots from miles around
seventy-five feet high and a mile and a quarter around
all that light, all that color, all that sound
now shirley went all l.a.…
Stand Up, Sherlock [disquiet0045-sherlocksawyer]
Kinda off my beaten path, so have a laugh with me on it. Did not use a guitar this time (honoring a promise to @all-n4tural).
Sentence 1 (from Tom Sawyer):
“I dare you to step over that and I’ll lick you ’til you can’t stand up.”
Sentence 2 (from Sherlock Holmes):
“A shadow of a doubt as to my conduct would bring the matter to an end.”…
crystalline sky grace [disquiet0044-sandy2012]
Still a bit shellshocked here in Brooklyn, NYC. While wrestling with a few other concepts in the last couple days, Amazing Grace kept floating in the air. I believe in forces greater than myself, but I am not religious so much as spiritual. That is, I don’t believe these forces around us act with intention.…
kamikuma: remixes of The Know It Alls
kamikuma (natalia kamia), one my fav soundclouders, hails from Gothenburg, Sweden. “anything can be translated” says her profile, but let the mystery be for while and just absorb her work. she creates space within and around her sounds, which is a high calling, and results often in tracks that are as exhilarating as they can be challenging.…
AustinTown (inst.) [disquiet0042-naivemelody]
The instrument I have played for the longest time is a 1965 Framus 5/59-525 Sorella thinline. My dad bought it for $12 at a garage sale in 1982 and told me, “Make this sound like you mean it and we’ll see about getting you a nicer guitar.” Despite her given name, I call her Stella (though she’s not to be confused with Framus’s same-era Stella archtop line).…
