Oh, Holy Fuck



Here's the 3rd to the last song in the Corky Red Tail album (although I have 3 more songs after this one to post). In this song, Rudy the Cop has this big bucket of paint and he's gonna throw it on the bust of George Washington at Mt. Rushmore. Verdell and Mogie, in the spirit world, are all, "oh holy fuck, he's really gonna do it, he's gonna do it, he's really gonna do it. This is the best thing that I ever saw - Rudy the Cop is gonna break the law."

Corky's all excited, too, because when his mom sees old George with paint on his face, she'll know it's a sign from him that he's okay in the spirit world. So, in his stoked-ness, he sings his death song, just for good measure.

The sample is of Rudy sayin' "son of a bitch! Iktomi!" See, he sees a spider on the can o' paint and that's what makes him decide to throw it cuz he's been havin' that old Iktomi-Trickster-Spider following him around for the whole movie. He's ready to throw that trickster spider along with that bucket of paint, and all that.

 This is what last week's song sounds like when you play it backwards.

I'm gonna post this link again to the Winona's Hemp page. See, she got to the 100 grand goal (yay), and it would be even cooler if she exceeded that by 25 grand, because she needs to buy farm equipment. Yesiree.


For anyone new to this blog, the album I'm discussing is based on the movie, Skins. (Spoiler Alert)... It follows this character, Corky Red Tail, into the afterlife cuz he gets murdered in the beginning of the movie. Then he's joined by Mogie and Verdell, who both die of alcoholism in one way or another. The three of them work together to try to get a message to Corky's mom that he's okay in the afterlife. The most likeliest candidate to do that is Rudy, Mogie's brother, because all three of them knew Rudy when they were alive, so they're all connected to him in one way or another.

Room C



 Here's another one of those backwards songs. I'm calling this one Room C. It also has oatmeal in it.

I also wanted to draw attention to this worthy cause. Winona LaDuke, she's this really awesome, cool person, and she wants to start a hemp farm. I really hope this project succeeds; if you pledge, you can get cool stuff like stickers and things. Check it out, man.

Linkin Park Cover (Shadow of the Day)



I'm posting this on an off-day because it's a cover song. See, I wanted to do something in honor of Chester Bennington, so I learned how to perform "Shadow of the Day" backwards. (It's on Linkin Park's album, Minutes to Midnight). It's one of my favoritest Linkin Park songs in the whole world.

 Here's how it sounds if you turn it around. I had to omit the drums because they didn't work when I turned 'em around. I also realized I kept on singing one of the notes wrong, so I layered me singing that note right, ontop of the regular vocals. I dunno, I think I'm happy with how close I got to the actual song, but if you were to just listen to this by itself, it's probably a pretty crappy cover. (Sorry, Linkin Park!)

 I'd recorded me performing the actual song so I could turn it around backwards in my computer and figure out how to perform it backwards. This is an excerpt from that recording - it's the one part that doesn't suck.

Shit, I hope I'm not violating any copyright stuff. I guess if Linkin Park gets wind of this here recording, they can rest, assured that I'm not making any $$$$ offa this.

I'm the Ghost of Murdered Corky



In this song, Rudy has found out who Corky's murderers are, so he gets revenge on them by whacking their knees with a baseball bat. See, the picture is of Rudy with a nylon on his head so he won't be recognized. In the song, Corky is freaking out a little bit because he's worried that he might have inadvertently influenced Rudy to do that deed. But then, in the end, he realizes it probably doesn't matter all that much.

 This is last week's song if you play it backwards.

For anyone new to this blog, the album I'm discussing is based on the movie, Skins. (Spoiler Alert)... It follows this character, Corky Red Tail, into the afterlife cuz he gets murdered in the beginning of the movie.

Sorghum and Leaf Blower



Here's the backwards version of next week's song. I think next week's one is darker'n this week's one, but maybe it's cuz the lyrics are dark in that one.

 The leaf blowers showed up again right before I wanted to record something with a live mike. (It was drums this time - they usually show up when I'm about to record vocals). So here's this week's leaf blower song.

This is a Stupid Idea Mogie; Leaf Blower (Bonus Track)



This is last week's song if you play it backwards. In this song, Rudy the cop is receiving psychic transmissions from the spirits of his brother, Mogie; Mogie's best friend, Verdell; and Corky. They're all tellin' Rudy to vandalize the George Washington bust on Mount Rushmore to make it look like he's crying. Rudy's all, "this is a stupid idea, Mogie," because he thinks it's a stupid idea.

I didn't realize, until after I recorded the song, that it sounds kind of innuendo-ish. There's a lot of innuendo-ish sounding stuff in it.

This is last week's song if you actually play it backwards.



This week, I included a bonus track about how much I hate the sound of leaf-blowers. See, I was just about to record the vocals to the song I did today, when the stupid leaf blowers started going outside. That always happens - it's always either a leaf blower or a garbage truck that shows up when I'm about to record vocals. So I gotta wait cuz they would invariably bleed through onto the recording. Poopity pooop.

Jrove Relax - Sick Yahm, We Are Drinking




Here's the backwards version of next week's song. It's, like, the narrator is tellin' someone to relax cuz the narrator is drinking. The forwards version isn't about drinking, though.

We're Gonna Get High Tonight


This week's entry is unusual in the sense that I don't have a backwards version for it yet; I just sort of felt like posting it. It's a weird entry, too, because, although I haven't posted all the songs to the death-album I've been working on, I'm jumping ahead to a song from the next album. 

It's hard to describe what this next album is. See, these're gonna be the songs that go between the songs of the previous album. You know how operas have arias, and musicals have those really good songs that everyone remembers? And then there's the singing in between the main songs? Y'know, that stuff that moves the plot along, but they aren't the memorable songs? (They usually sound like shit, but that might just be me being a big jerk, saying that). 

The new album is gonna be those in-between songs. I'm gonna aspire to have them not sound like shit, but I don't know how successful I'll be at that. Anyway, in this song, Corky is planning on smoking pot with his friends, but when he gets to the place where they were supposed to meet, there're mean guys there instead. This is the song that leads up to the previously posted song called "I Am Dead" (posted on March 24 of this year). Since I sing this here new song real fast, I decided to write out the lyrics, so you can follow along with it.

Me and my friends, we like to smoke pot/ We like to smoke it an ever lovin' lot
It is a plant that comes from a seed/ We like to smoke that ever lovin' weed
We're gonna get high tonight
We're s'posed to meet at that stupid little shack/ Once upon a time it was a place for smoking crack
And then I'm coming toward the house but something looks wrong/ Where are my friends? I do not know - they were supposed to bring the bong
 We're gonna get high tonight
I think they skeedaddled and are hiding in the weeds/ I should have come with them; oh fuck, what can this be?
They were meeting earlier but I could not go/ I had to work that day to make my money grow
It is not my friends in there - it's Mean Guys 1 and 2/ Oh, shit, they see me! There's nothing I can do!
"Hey, you owe us money!"/ "Wait, I do not! I paid you months ago; at least that's what I thought."
We're gonna get high tonight. Oh, shit, maybe not.

Next week, I'll get back to posting the main songs from the Corky album.

I'd Like the Great White Father in Washington to Look Like He is Crying



 As usual, here's the forwards-version of last week's backwards-song, which is another part of that rock opera/death-album thingy I'm working on.

This song is sung from the point of view of Mogie after he's in the spirit world. He's tryin' to convince his brother, Rudy, to do graffiti on the George Washington statue-thingy at Mt. Rushmore. See, he wants Rudy to make it look like George Washington's crying cuz the picture, above, is a picture Corky drew when he was in the 3rd grade. It's one of Corky's mom's favorite pictures; as such, if she sees the Mt. Rushmore George Washington looking like that picture, she'll know it's a sign from Corky that he's okay in the afterlife.

Okay...bastard-son-of-a-bitch...the song up there, it keeps on crapping out half-way through, and I don't know if it's because of my slow internet connection, or if there's something wrong with the poopy website I use to host these songs. So, here's an embedded player from another site I use...hopefully, this'll work. (If it sounds all bolloxed up, you can go to the podcast, itself, where it might work better).

Nut N(g)ishaw Nih Earth Off Tyaw Tyearg Uth Kyall Dyah



This is the backwards version of next week's song. The picture of the guys crying has to do with the fact that next week's song has crying-ness in it. I mean, these guys aren't in the actual song cuz it's about another guy.  Sort of. I went ahead and scanned some of the rest of the page that the crying guys are on, cuz I happened to draw them on the piece of paper where I printed up the lyrics of this here song.

Have Lots of Fun




Yeah, I actually got this song from a dream. Corky and Verdell are hanging out in the spirit world, when Mogie suddenly appears. Verdell's all confused because he didn't know Mogie had died. Mogie admits that he died of alcoholism, but that's okay cuz now the three of them are together and they can have lots of fun. In the song, Verdell tells Mogie that he wants them to help Corky get a message to his mom that he's okay.

The sampled guys are Mogie (saying "hey, you rank old bugger") and Verdell laughing. I guess that's how they greet each other in Heaven.

Nuff Fuh Stall Vah




Here's the backwards version of next week's song. The picture kinda sorta doesn't necessarily apply directly to this here song, though. See, when I listen to next week's song, I imagine the 3 narrators of it marching in place, as they sing. It's one of those happy, marching-in-place sorts of songs.
