Another Tasteless Kitschmas!

Posted on

IF CHRISTMAS COMES EARLIER EACH YEAR, then so can my “Tasteless Kitschmas” Song (see the 3 images below). Do you think it will get in the “Hit Parade”? 🤣 The melody is in a “Skiffle” style, a bit like “My Old Man’s a Dustman”. 🙂 You’ll never hear me sing it; but I mean every word of it. Christmas… an obscenity on the face of humanity — like a hairy wart on a beauty-queen’s nose. What does it have to do with Christ? Nothing at all. Enjoy the song though… Click on “Read the rest of this Entry” to read it all: Read the rest of this entry »

Living-Room Video #31: “Equinox – A Hymn”

Posted on Updated on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #31: “Equinox – A Hymn”. Here’s a video of a song I have written in the last few days, since the Equinox. At the start of the video I’ll tell you all about it. These are the lyrics:

Time comes again when the
night equals day.
Summer is spent and the
Fall comes to play
as the days melt away.

I’m melting too as ice
looms into view.
Daylight is fading to
Indigo blue
then the Solstice is due.

My Take on the 2018 EuroTrash Song Contest

Posted on Updated on

Snapshot_46

This is the best that EuroTrash from the false EU can produce. What a horrible joke. I was gobsmacked by the banality. Give me the Old Europe (the Real Europe) any day — the producer of Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Zelenka, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Mendelsohn, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, etc. How far we have strayed!  Read the rest of this entry »

Mahler’s Crazy Rondo Burleske

Posted on

I KNOW MOST OF YOU PROBABLY DO NOT HAVE THE TIME to listen to a complete Mahler symphony (lasting between 1 and 1½ hours!). You are far too busy and important people to be wasting your life infusing yourselves with divine musical nectar from one of the most deep and spiritual composers to have graced this planet. 😉 But could I tempt you to set aside your super-busy-ness to spend just 12 minutes of your life listening to one little part of his 9th Symphony? Actually, this particular part (or “movement” as it’s called) is especially relevant to “super-busy-ness”. Shockingly so. Let me explain: Read the rest of this entry »

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #30: “Love-Dust Dream”

Posted on Updated on

 

Been living underground;
there, water’s deep and most of me drowned.
It’s of no consequence;
tore down some walls — undid all pretence
[climbed off the fence]

I have no table here;
walked on hot coals and burned away fear.
For I’ve lost everything
except this dreamful song that I sing
[flowers I bring]
