I Quit 04:38
There are calls to return There are visits to pay There are far too many people Who should just go away That's it Now I'm all out of sick time I don't get paid for OT There's no such thing as a promotion And you can't fire me I quit This is my womb This is my doom This is my tomb This is my bedroom With every drip on my head I learn what it's all about Well you're my nasty little secret Now I'm letting you out Tough shit And this is where you end up When you're done laying blame In a bed all alone In a puddle of shame I quit This is my womb This is my doom This is my tomb This is my bedroom These are my hopes These are my dreams These are my plans This is my face right here in my hands This is my doom This is my tomb This is my bedroom This is my womb This is my doom This is my tomb This is my bedroom You're a shape in the rain You're a phrase in a note You're a photo in an album You're the lump in my throat I quit

Soul Food For White People Mike, Jed, and Chris ordered the sliced turkey breast with side orders and soda. I got the chicken pot pie. They got the baked beans, but I got the tortellini salad and stuffing covered with hot gravy. The smell of beans hit me like wet steam when I reached the table. The beans and bean juice were red. We talked and we ate this food so hard we started to sweat. We talked about the rock stars we hate. Jed had to watch his language because there were children in Boston Rotisserie Chicken. Outside was an old couple walking a brown and white dog. The dog jaggers as it smells other dogs' urine. It's really old. They expected it to die last winter. They watch it walk proudly. The dog ignores them, sniffing dry papers on the ground. Its thick pawskin grabs the pavement at each step. It's hot out. The old couple is so proud of their dog outside of Boston Rotisserie Chicken. Mike and Jed and Chris and I fall back from the table, and we walk out. The best feeling after your stomach is stretched like a full wineskin is putting your hand under your shirt and rubbing your full stomach.

If I went away, would it make you sad?

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 “I Quit” (2007), a spoken-word/keyboard improv performance of Jack Beal's "Soul Food For White People” (1995), and "Didn't Think So” from my long out-of-print album We're All Going To Jail! 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
