Shit Hole Country

We are shit. We as a nation are shit.

What kind of shit hole country allows the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice eight days before an election after brick walling the previous administrations nominee for 11 month because it was an election year.

Every republican in the senate needs to rot in whatever hell best suits them.

Donald Trump is a Pussy

Four years removed from grab them by the pussy, I finally watched the 60 Minutes interview.

It’s clear that Donald Trump is a pussy, He’s a wining little pussy. He’s a spoiled brat of a pussy. He’s a little bunker bitch pussy. Plain and simple.

What do you say, eight days from now we kick his pussy ass out of office?

‘Tis the Season

I was thinking of celebrating the last week before Halloween by watching a scary movie before bed each night. Hulu has a film version of Clive Barker’s Books of Blood (how? Is it an anthology thing? Is it based on a single story? Books of Blood is a short story series (six books if you live in the UK, three if you live in the US) that I’ve wanted to see. Speaking of Mr Barker, I still haven’t seen the director’s cut of Nightbreed. I have heard good things. I think there’s a film version of Midnight Meat Train too… is that from Books of Blood? I can’t remember. What about Dread? I think they made that into a movie too. That one is definitely from Books of Blood (volume 2, if memory serves) and it scared the living shit out of me.

I have one more episode of Haunting of Bly Manor and that show is so freakin’ good. I’m also mid-way through Lovecraft Country. I could use both of those shows as my scary movie-fest each night.

Having said all of that, Jen and I are blitzing our way through Schitt$ Creek and only have a few episodes left. We’ll watch some of those tonight and then I’ll go to sleep because I got little to no sleep last night… so spooky fest is dead before it starts.

Sorry, horror fans. I’m old.

Disgusting Covid-19 Milestones

My state and my country both hit really horrible milestones today in their Covid-19 numbers. We should be proud of ourselves, and by proud I mean furious and horrified and completely devastated.

In my count of confirmed and probable Covid-19 cases, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts topped 150,000 today.

While the people of Massachusetts were getting sicker and sicker, the people of the United States hit a little bit of a death milestone. 225,000 deaths. Hooray. Let’s have another trump rally to celebrate.

I am so tired of this. Stop being assholes and wear the friggin mask.

October Music

When I mentioned that the songs for October’s album in a month weren’t so much songs as technical exercises, this is what I meant:

Polyrhythms. One guitar, the bass, and the drums are in one time signature. The other guitar is in a different time signature. Dig?

All of the tracking for October is finished, and now the first mix down is finished too. Happy Halloween.

Car Music

I finished the vocals for October. Done and done. Just short little one line thingies. I added lots of harmony to some of them to make it more interesting.

I was joined in the movie theater parking lot by not one but two student drivers. One with an actual auto school and the other just learning on their own.

I just need to add some additional guitars to a few of the October songs and then all the tracking will be done. I also started mixing a re-recording yesterday but still have some work to do.

The last week of October will be very musical. Everything needs to be done before The Mandolorian season two debuts next weekend.

This is the way.
