Woodscrews [May. 3rd, 2009|11:01 pm]
Faded, Jaded Mandarin
Keeping in the tradition of only posting songs round here, (at the blistering snail's pace they come in) here's a new one, 5 months early for Halloween:



Woodscrews, buttons and dinosaur bones
whistles, wooden swords and little round stones
pirate coins stolen from old Davey Jones
that's what you'll find in a boy's room

Baseballs, popguns and whittled-down sticks
gum wrappers, robots, and a piece of a brick
a book that will teach you 100 card tricks
that's what you'll find in a boy's room

a rocking chair that looks like a troll in low light
lassos that could bind a boy up real tight
dark shadows in the corners conceal spiders that bite
that what you'll find in a boy's room

there's a closet that's a doorway to permit the undead
and dust bunnies with two rows of teeth in their head
and tentacles that slide out from under the bed
that's what you'll find in a boy's room

the toy-chest spews a cloud of poison that spreads
and a vaporous bride that murders all who she weds
with a bookcase that bleeds out a thick shade of red

and 100 other things that will fill you with dread (x2)
That's what you'll find in a boy's room.

We're breaking up LJ. Facebook is my new girlfriend. Watch us kiss at a dirty table in the food court, and be jealous. I can still be your friends page though, right?

'Course in my absence I wrote a song about the Watchmen, so it's all good. Wierd co-inky-dink that I finished it right when the movie is coming out!

Enjoy it! And tell yer girlfriends!

Here's a version of Joe Purdy's "Cowboy Song". It kinda jumped up and bit me today, so i figured I'd record it:

Worked up a new song the other day and fabricari has emboldened me enough to try and throw down a rough version, in the interest of trying to post at least once a week here you go:

(Ignore my rambling at the beginning and the sharp edges, I should smooth them off after playing it for a few weeks)

So tymmi  just finished his comic "!". Not only has it got a great title, but it's probably the best webcomic I've seen in recent memory (admittedly i don't read Penney Arcade or um that one the other guy does...) Here's a swipe at Tym's monster, who is pretty much the only thing I feel for, by the end...READ IT!

the Von Flues storm Facebook [Jan. 6th, 2009|07:46 am]
Faded, Jaded Mandarin
I've been spending more time on teh olde facebook lately (Profile found here) I resisted FB for a long time cause all I ever saw there was people I went to high school with. And really, I see them at the market every week so, what's the point? But either i'm getting older or Facebook is getting better.

We also have a studio page where my better half and I will attempt to send out regular updates on what we're doing, which this week entails the painting and firing of many ceramic platters, doing some decorative finishes in a theatre lobby and a big ol' mural on a car wash (ah the life of a sellout? working artist). So friend it all, we'll keep making more.

Yoppy here did an incredible version of the Hang Dog Song Turpentine a while back and this is the best thing I've seen this season:

You can tell him yourself over on his LJ

Happy holidays, all.
