Earveh



 This is the backwards version of next week's song. Shit, it's the last song of the Corky album. I'm a little sad to see it ending here. Man-alive.

Have a Nice Day, Now


 In this song, Corky, Verdell, and Mogie are all happy because Rudy threw the bucket of paint on George Washington's bust at Rushmore and the way the paint fell on him, it made him look like he was crying. Now Corky's mom is gonna see it (cuz it's gonna be all over the news), and since it'll remind her of a picture of George Washington crying that Corky drew on a notebook when he was a kid, she'll know it's a sign from Corky that he's okay in the afterlife.

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.

Rudy, Mogie, Timmy, Bobby, Charlie, and Daisy



I'm posting an extra song this week because I'm finishing up this graphic novel, and there's a scene where the characters sing this very song. I have this notes section where I went on to tell the readers where to go to listen to this song. I was gonna refer them to this here blog, when I realized I'd never posted this song! I posted the backwards version of it on July 10, 2016, but I never posted the forwards version of it. 

This song's from the previous rock opera/death-album thingy I wrote in 2015, also based on the movie, Skins. This song's sung from the point of view of Rudy the Cop. He's singing about how maybe if he's good enough, he'll get to go to Heaven.

I threw in stuff about my cats, Charlie and Daisy, as well as Timmy and Bobby, who are characters that play supporting roles in the graphic novel. So that's why there's a picture of Charlie and Daisy up there. It's not like Charlie and Daisy necessarily have anything to do with Rudy the Cop. Neither do Timmy and Bobby. I just put 'em in there to pay tribute to them.

This is what July 10, 2016's entry sounds like when you turn it around.

This is the song I posted on July 10, 2016, in case you want to refer to it without having to scroll through this blog to get to it.

I'll get back to the Corky death album songs later this week.

Mud Singing Earveh



 This song's called Mud Singing Earveh. The picture's supposed to be of singing mud, but it might look like a turd. Whoops. It's the backwards version of next week's song, which is the 2nd of the 3-song grand finale of that death-album I'm working on. Yesiree.

I Threw That Can Of Paint



This is the first of the 3-song grand finale of the Corky death-album I'm workin' on. In this song, Rudy the Cop climbs up on top of George Washington on Rushmore and throws a can of paint so it'll land on George's face and make it look like he's cryin'. The sample is of him saying "I love you, Mogie," cuz in the movie (and in the album), he's doin' it in his brother's honor. He's also doin' it in honor of the sacred rocks that got carved up to make the stupid statue. There's also this cool singing on the sample cuz the cool singing is in that part of the movie. Woohoo.

 Here's last week's song when you turn it around backwards.

Stewashit



This song is called Stewashit, which is kind of a German-sounding title. The picture, above, doesn't really have anything to do with the song; I'm just postin' it cuz it's funny and stuff. This is the backwards version of next week's song, yesiree.

Dream-Cat Version of Have Lots of Fun



I'm taking a brief detour from the Corky album cuz I cain't remember what all songs from it I've posted (and it got all late, and my frontal lobe ain't working well enuff for me to draw a picture to illustrate a song).

This is a different version of the "Have Lots of Fun" song that's on the Corky album. See, I originally got the song from a dream, where I met 2 cats, and they started singing this song to me. This version is about as close as I can get to the actual dream song.

The part about Carl Jung is a reference to the section of The Red Book, where Jung meets the devil, and the devil tells him that he is joy. (Weird fucking shit, man).

 See, okay, I recorded the backwards version of the song today, but it sucks balls. Oddly enough the turned-back-around version sounds not too bad. But if you really wanna hear what today's recording sounds like, feel free to stick this song in Audacity and turn it around. (But it'll sound like shit).

In A Dream



This is the next song in the Corky Red Tail rock opera/death album-thingy I'm working on. In this song, Rudy is asleep and dreaming, but he doesn't know it at first. When he sees Corky, he's all surprised because Corky's supposed to be dead. Corky, who's actually visiting Rudy in his dream (spirits can do that) explains to him that he's dreaming, and he's just popping in for a visit. They proceed to smoke pot.

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

"Oh, yeah, he broke it!" "No, it's not; you're being negative."




This is next week's song if you perform it backwards. This version has more of a liturgical feel to it than next week's song. The sampled guys sound like they're saying, "Oh, yeah, he broke it," "No, it's not; you're being negative." It almost sounds as if they're arguing, but, as you'll hear next week, they're actually having a friendly exchange.

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.

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.
