…as I mentioned in the news and views video this song has been floating around for a while…I’m calling it electro-punk. It has a very in front mix on the drums so watch your volume…the song doesn’t kick in until after the opening title and credit. Wildly panning hihat/effects with crushing drums, spoken word verse minorish chorus, weirdish overtone bass, screaming – and I mean this literally – guitar solo, sweepy synths…you know stufflikethat. After my last songs 4 on the floor kick it was time to messitupalittle so we have a pretty syncopated kick on todays menu. I wasn’t able to shoot the video exactly how I wanted – but I am happy with the final result, it enhances the electro vibe imo. As I rendered this video for publication on the web – I lost some frames in my framerate – so little things like the kick pedal hitting the kickdrum head suddenly disappear half the time. For what its worth – the quicktime video under the main flash video seemed to render better. If you don’t like the song or the video – maybe you’ll dig my pajamas which are featured heavily, black friday specials…rock and electro roll baby.

im on the right line
ever since im unchained ah
movin through the mysteries of His reign
lookin down from mountaintops
through the clouds and on the fields the raindrops

free to feel the true life
free to be so free from all the low strife
im a fightin prime time
leadin through a groove and a bounce rhyme

im on the right line seekin what is really true
im on the right line hey now maybe how about you

flat line no luck
maybe when your rollin you should learn to tuck
that feel underneath
Hes the one who makes the blind to see

right here right now gonna get your soul into oh wow
bright flame burn hot
shadows bummin out from what they aint got

im on the right line seekin what is really true
im on the right line hey now maybe how about you
solo
chorus out

william blake > the tyger

William Blake wrote The Tyger in 1794, I have been a fan of his for some time. There is a lot of wild speculation about his sanity and real beliefs, but if you study his work (prints, poems etc), you will find many edifying and inspiring experiences. In this poem though quite short, I find numerous references to Gods amazing creativity, especially the line about the lamb. GM wrote about him;

William Blake, the painter of many strange and fantastic but often powerful — sometimes very beautiful pictures — wrote poems of an equally remarkable kind. Some of them are as lovely as they are careless, while many present a curious contrast in the apparent incoherence of the simplest language. He was born in 1757, towards the close of the reign of George II. Possibly if he had been sent to an age more capable of understanding him, his genius would not have been tempted to utter itself with such a wildness as appears to indicate hopeless indifference to being understood. We cannot tell sometimes whether to attribute the bewilderment the poems cause in us to a mysticism run wild, or to regard it as the reflex of madness in the writer.
