Roll (rock is the beat, roll is the magic)

September 16, 2014

This ain’t pretty, but it’s live. (More rehearsal than anything. For the official studio version go to the big box set).
Roll is the opening song, from my 9th CD ,of the “outside the box” set, for Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar (a back to basics, “this guitar is as good as a band”, style of music, or postmod music).

The 9th on the 9th

September 9, 2014

Dear Readers,

Today being the 9th, I thought I would take down my art work (cover and liner notes) for CD #9 to CCS, Crystal Clear Studios.

Turns out my engineer had a CD for me too! His was the mix of #9 for me to OK. If I do then we make the CDs. Good swap.

Number Nine, will finish out the 9 CD’s for the box set of 150 songs, – which will come out later on it’s own. Look for all these to be on the major sites for buying music by the end of the year.

Be sure to see the new issue of Musea for the full story of this 10 year music project.

Vision Poems (another group)

September 9, 2014

VISION POEMS

WHAT IS A VISION POEM? (intro from Musea issue on Vision Poetry)
WARNING: This is not ‘Poetry 101′. This is advanced. Vision Poetry does not rhyme (most of the time), and it’s not what you are used to. If for any reason, after reading two or three of these short poems, you don’t ‘GET IT'; please, fold up the zine page , replace it on the stack where you found it, and slowly back away from your computer.

Now that we’ve gotten rid of the neophytes, let’s continue. Vision poems are part koan, part hallucination, part vision, slightly enlightening, and peppered with occasional eureka moments. They are word pictures, dreams, fantasies, jokes, lightning strikes, and kafkaesque situations. Read them with a sense of adventure. Then see if the startling images – somewhat like what a painter might see in his mind before beginning his new work – suggests anything deeper or more profound. Enjoy and let me hear what you think.


she taped
an autumn leaf
to the middle
of every window

they built a dome,
a clear amber dome,
over the roofs of the
seven churches.

Willie Loman passed Blanche Dubois
at the train station.

the labyrinth
of grey stone walls
had bas reliefs
of dancing divinities
with here and there
a high oil lamp
that bathed life
into the sculptures
as the flames flitted
across the figures

What do birds
think of angels?

the Priest wore
a robe of stars

horse turning around
Moon in the sky

I saw in the future
where they freeze their bird songs
and then thaw them out
in a most pleasing order.
