UNBOXING: DAVID BOWIE LIMITED EDITION STYLOPHONE RETRO POCKET ANALOG SYN...


David Bowie was the only person I knew about who used a Stylophone, but of course Kraftwek used one. When I saw a kid playing one on Infinity Train, I really wanted to get one. And now since I'm making music for podcasts and videos, I thought it'd be a fun way to mix things up. 

I was super stoked to unbox my new Stylophone David Bowie Limited Edition.

It’s totally worth what they’re charging, as it’s a fun, portable synthesizer.

What do Vegans and Gandhi Have in Common?

I drew that picture of Gandhi and made a video about his salt marches.
Did you know his act of civil disobedience, beautifully simple though it was, inspired countless others?
It's come to my attention that many people I know have never heard about the salt marches. 
At the time, they were considered loud and obnoxious displays.

But if we use the things we need to survive to end oppression and cruelty and injustice, it makes an impact.

Veganism is about the emancipation of animals from humans. But it's really about fighting injustice. And I think we can learn a lot from Gandhi and how he fought the injustices under Raj rule.

Darling Be Home Soon Acoustic Cover

Darling Be Home Soon by John Sebastian


Here's where I ruin that John Sebastian song everyone likes.

I think this song is usually sung much more upbeat than the words tell it to be. John Sebastian performed it on a lark at Woodstock, which I think is so cool. He just happened to be backstage and they needed an acoustic act, so he grabbed a guitar, took the scaffold, and happened to have Darling Be Home Soon in his head from his days with Lovin' Spoonful (they'd recently broken up).

He tells the whole story in this awesome book I love.

I enjoy the idea that all a person wants is to talk with his lover while she's away. I'm kind of going through this with someone right now. All I can really imagine is lying in bed and discussing and hatching adventures we can go on together.

I hope my interpretation conveys that feeling a little more than the original. 


Achy Breaky Heart

Achy Breaky Heart Acoustic Cover


Here's where I ruin that Billy-Ray Cyrus song everyone liked. I always thought it would be better as a sad song because the lyrics are really a downer. It reads like what you would write if you were making fun of an old-fashioned country break-up song.

I especially like all the poetic turns the song makes around body parts in general and fingers/lips in particular.

First
You can tell my lips to tell my fingertips they won't be reaching out for you no more.
And then
You can tell your brother Cliff whose fist can tell my lip he never liked me anyway.

That's pretty golden because it rhymes both halves of the song in a way that links them thematically and gives your brain a little flash of slanted recollection. It's a neat little song, and even though it does not stand up to the test of time, I can see why it was such a huge success.
