Zorch means it's edgar

Dimph means it's in there ...

The amazing world of song poetry, including the greatest of the song sharks, and the story of how "Blind Man's Penis" came to be. "You, too, Mister Composer/Musician, can put out records if you bother to go to the trouble of sending obscene lyrics and suicide notes through the U.S. Postal Service, as I did."
Special bonus: The Nightmare World of Dion McGregor.

I am weepy with gratitude. This is wonderful.

You know, it's sites like this that remind me: the Internet is what Cable Access could have been, if Cable Access hadn't been staffed with AV stoners who spent six hours a day playing with wipe effects.

I finally found a name for my blog! 16 Tickets to Schenectady!

Yeah! Considering most people I know around here refer to tabs of acid as "tickets" - that makes perfect sense!

Hey! No fair! I know plenty of webpages by stoners obsessed with JavaScript wipe effects!

Seriously though: this is great stuff right here.

Someone put "Blind Man's Penis" on a mixtape for me a couple of years ago: it's great and I urge you all to hear it. I assumed it was the work of some nutty underground band but now I am properly awed and humbled by its true genesis.

... as parodied by the Switcher Solo on the version of "Pain Cave" performed by Wayne and Garth on an MTV Wayne's World special. One of the funniest moments in their history, only because it's so true.

This is truly amazing. I'm sort of afraid to listen to the MP3s here at work in case I start laughing and can't stop. And the dreamtalking Dion McGregor is incredibly bizarre and interesting. Hurrah! My mix tapes/CDs are going to be so much better now.
