Here I sit, broken-hearted Mourning a life that never even got started I bought the line I sold my car I crawled through tunnels And I wept in bars Now I'm gagging on fumes in a cold white cell And I can't just pretend to enjoy the smell I'm a ghost, motherfuckers I'm sick of only seeing the seams And I want New York City To go back to being the city of my dreams Here I sit, broken-hearted Caged like a hamster in my apartment Wanna get out, I gotta pay a toll To the stinkin-ass drunk on the stoop below But I got nothing for him, I blew it all On a studio the size of a toilet stall I'm a ghost, motherfuckers I'm sick of only seeing the seams And I want New York City To go back to being the city of my dreams I'm a ghost, motherfuckers Let be be finale of seem Now I want New York City To go back to being the city of The city of my dreams Iridescent in the morning Incandescent in the evening Fill the sky with silver towers rising If you zoom way out it starts to look just like the smile of a friend Iridescent in the morning Incandescent in the evening So majestic, mighty and magnetic And I never ever ever want to see it again. I'm a ghost, motherfuckers I'm sick of only seeing the seams And I want New York City To go back to being the city of The city of my dreams Here I sit, broken-hearted Thinking it's high time that I departed I breathed your smog I ate your crumbs I suffered your fools And I fed your bums Now let it be written on the bathroom wall: I'M GETTING OUT OF THIS SHITHOLE FUCK YOU ALL I'm a ghost, motherfuckers I'm sick of only seeing the seams And I want New York City To go back to being the city of my dreams I'm a ghost, motherfuckers Let be be finale of seem Now I want New York City To go back to being the city of The city of my dreams.

Good Movie 01:41
This guy named Jesse He made a movie He worked for hours And hours on end He thought out plot twists For entertainment value He wrought a screenplay And then he filmed and filmed and filmed You had some money You bought a camera You had some candy Laying around Your friends came over You filmed them eating Threw in some music And you made art and art and art And meanwhile Jesse Was blocking angles And checking lighting And buying props And finding actors (And dealing with them) And shooting retakes And then he spliced and spliced and spliced But you knew someone Who knew someone Who knew someone Who gave awards And so you entered Your friends and candy It was so brilliant Of course you won and won and won And meanwhile Jesse Made a good movie It had some action It had big laughs It didn't insult Anyone's intellect But he didn't become An establishment superstar 'Cause his film wasn't brilliant like yours It was not art It was not art It was not art.

I reach for you across a thunderstorm Two hundred miles Bottle a message and I wish it on Two hundred miles This is the closest I can come to praying The letters slip between the drops of rain And through the dark they wend their faithful way Two hundred miles I try to count the times I've dreamed of you In twenty years I try to name something that hasn't changed In twenty years And as I sigh and set aside my phone The handset tingles and begins to glow I don't believe my heart has beaten so In twenty years Across a thunderstorm there is a hand I need to hold Across a thunderstorm there is a hand You need to hold See by the lightning the connection we were born to make No time, no distance, and no power under Heaven can break Not even twenty years A thousand thousand raindrops And two hundred miles

about

2020 wasn’t good for much, but being homebound did allow me to sort through 30 years of old recordings, and unarchive tons of shelved and incomplete material.

And then finish that shit!

I am not really interested in doing “albums” anymore… holding music back until a dozen arbitrarily-linked songs are mixed and mastered and the stars and planets align. But at the same time, “singles” are kind of boring and “EPs” demand some degree of cohesion, and I don’t want to be boxed in like that. So here is what I offer you: THREE-PACKS

Remember those randomly-bagged multipacks of comic books they used to sell in toy and drug stores? You wouldn’t be able to see what was inside until you tore open the plastic, and the comics might be brand new or fifteen years old… it was just whatever happened to be laying around when they bundled it up. There was no thematic connection, no rhyme or reason to the collection, and one bag could even contain books from both Marvel AND DC. I was introduced to so many fun stories that way, and that is how I am going to introduce (or reintroduce) you to all of these songs.

This three-pack includes “City Of My Dreams” (2011), “‘Good Movie” (1994) and “Across A Thunderstorm” (2014) - all recently completed using a combination of the original recordings and new material. You can read more about each track if you click through to its page.

I’m not promising these three-packs in any regularly-scheduled fashion… and I’m not going to tell you about them in advance. When I feel like one is ready, it will just appear. They may have Skyscape/Hanslick Rebellion/Collider songs on them. All of my records from the past that are not currently available digitally will be represented, as well as material you have never heard, including brand-new stuff. But as far as I’m concerned, all of this music is new to most of the universe - and these are fresh versions of everything anyway, so I hope that in a way it will also be new to you.

Let’s have some fun <3
