Who Among You (or first to download a song)

December 14, 2014

Who among you would like to:

GO INTO THE HISTORY BOOKS, (well MY history books).
Who wants to BE A PIONEER?

Let me explain:

My big 10 year, 150 song, 9 cd, HUNKASAURUS AND HIS PET DOG GUITAR, music project is now on most of the major online music sites.
(The song list covers just about every type of song you can sing and play on a standard guitar – that was the point).

I’m looking for a person to be the first to download one of my 150 songs
( Will cost you about 99 cents) Then let me know that you did.

I’ll be glad to announce firsts (if you don’t mind) in a follow up.

Here are some of the major music sites that the 150 songs are on now. (try one of these or your favorite site).

AND/or Be first to download one of my songs from anyone of the music streaming places listed below. Then LET ME KNOW you did.



CDBaby (each CD has every cut available separately)

Google Music Store

Spotify (home website)

Here’s a fuller list. (Most all have the songs now or in the next week or so).

Apple iTunes
Amazon MP3
Xbox Music
Google Music Store
Slacker Radio
CD Baby Publishing
JB Hi-Fi
Samsung Music Hub

Mondia Media


Thanks Groundbreakers!
Now let me know who was first!

Some Say They Want a Music Revolution

November 27, 2014

Some say they want some new music, want the vitality that comes from a little music revolution? Well hang on, because here goes!

Start with no electric guitars, bass, or drums. Why? That forces musicians to think outside of a 60 year old, generic rock/rap/country/pop, formula, and forces people to be creative and innovative etc.

Next? Go beyond the Big 3, the 3 corporations that own the music
business; (Warners/Universal/Sony) and oppose their stranglehold on music.

Keep going! Oppose videos, as being too expensive for most musicians to make, and that shifts the emphasis back on the music not the visuals.

Don’t stop now? Stop writing your own songs, and let professional songwriters write good songs again.

Finally if you really want revolution? Support the Postmod revolution coming out of Dallas and the zine Musea..

Ten Year, 150 Song, 9 CD, Project now online at CDBaby

November 23, 2014

My 10 year long, 150 song, 9 CD, voice and guitar, outside the box – set, is finished and ready for sale

This was quite a week for me. After working for a month or two, Webmaster Matthew Creed and I got all of my 9 CD’s, 150 songs, in the Online Music Store CDBaby, the largest indie music selling site,
(and they in turn get it in all the other major stores, I-tunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.)

You are invited to be one of the first to view the CD pages. Start here, try out some songs, and go from there.

These 9 CD’s are also all available on the site too.

Thanks to Matthew, both of my audio engineers, Pamela Irwin, and Nolan Brett, and all the fine photographers who contributed cover photos. WOW it’s finally finished!

From CDBaby:
This recording is part of the, outside the box, set of 150 songs, a collection of all types of music, that show: the many variations of voice and standard guitar music, a type of combo guitar style, and 17 years of box office concerts.

Don’t Give Up On Love (lyrics)

October 25, 2014

Don’t Give Up on Love

On the road to who knows where
Where nobody seems to care
And you ask ‘why am I here?’
Don’t give up on love

Cry your eyes out everyday
Hide out in your hide-a-way
Keep all the world at bay – but
Don’t give up on love

Don’t give up on love
It’ll see you through

One more time and verse to say
Say in time you’ll try again
You may loose or you may win
Don’t give up on love.


Punk Music Review from the 80’s

October 2, 2014

I found this music review in “Maximum Rocknroll” #67 December ’88, ‘record and tape review’ section (and it’s quoted exactly as written). You can hear the grindcore band on youtube



I’m not kidding, there are 42 “songs” on this 7″, each about 8 seconds long. This is how the band sums it up: “We would, however, like to point out that we do not practice at all and all the music was made as we went along (punk, eh?}
Tiny bursts of thrash and metal, lyrics included. (DF) (Acid Rain Records, PO Box 17, Dewsury, W. Yorks WF128 AA, UK)
