Getaway

Continuing on with the hit parade of my tribute album to 80s Rock music and 80s Action Movie cliches and tropes, his time it’s an ode to the mandatory car chase in pretty much every action movie ever. I hope to here it in a car commercial one day, or maybe in a movie that’s just a little too on the nose.

Lyrics

The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway

Robbers on the highway
they push the petal to the Red LIne
Mess around with me
you get a permanent Bed Time
Smashing through the barricades
and crashing into Squad Cars
Thought they’d getaway,
but really they never got far
Jumping over ramps
at maximum acceleration
What they didn’t count on
was my determination
I Bumped into their backside
they spun out of control
Mess with the law
then you got to pay the toll

The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway

Impossible White Man

I listen to a lot of podcasts. One of my favorites is The Black Guy Who Tips, a podcast where the slogan is, “Nothing is wrong if it’s funny.” The Podcast is hosted by Rodimus Prime and his wife Karen. In the show he brings up his favorite genre of movie, a sub-genre of Action Films called “Impossible White Man.” The qualifiers for what makes a movie fit this genre are listed on this page.  A while ago Rodimus touted Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler, as a good example of this kind of film. I finally got around to watching it and it inspired the most amazing thing! A song by me. The one below.

Lyrics

How does he do it
Is he specially trained
If it moves he can shoot it
It cannot be explained
He’s not unlikely, not just improbable
Mows down his enemies, he’s so unstoppable
Survives by any means, it seems illogical
He is the White Man, we call impossible
He is impossible
(Impossible White Man!)
He is the white man, we call impossible
(Impossible White Man!)
He is impossible
(Impossible White Man!)x4
He is impossible

Updated: Regarding the NFL Redskins

Washington-Redskins     So, since the owner of the Washington DC based NFL team isn’t backing down on changing the team name, even though the won’t renew the Trademark or copyright on the name. He feels he’s so right about this wrongheaded nonsense.  I therefore expanded the song a little to further express my displeasure with his stubborn bullheadedness.

I ain’t even full blooded, certified with sovereignty
But empathize with the mass  genocide an poverty
Now America chooses justice in their foreign policy
behaved horribly when we expanded colonies
In the nations capital football franchise
they keep nasty racial slur aggrandized
might as well be the Washington DC savages
Or the victims of ethnic cleansing practices
Wouldn’t call a team Wops, Spics, Kikes or Jigaboos
How about call them the Souix, cherokee, or seminoles
Pick any tribal nations or a positive trait
Look at the names of teams in other states
the chiefs, not so bad, Atlanta Braves pretty solid
But the name Redskins needs to be abolished
Don’t want to be called a cracker honkie, or devil,
Then Dan Silver should think about being respectful

Recognition

I was thinking about the creative process and who I do art for after watching Jon Favreau‘s film Chef. The movie touched me a lot, I saw how easily adaptable the story was for any artistic endeavor, not just the culinary arts. I had a mix of emotions about the film, from a slight twinge of nostalgia and jealousy at the chance to work with my friends and make great art at the same time, to having to claw myself back up to the bottom and then rise to the middle and dream about the top.

Anyway I wrote a song about what the creative process means to me and maybe a few other artists out there. It’s a work in progress with my heart firmly on my sleeve.

Nugget – The Homicidal Honey Bear

 

Here’s a song I made for the What Say You podcast. The What Say You Podcast consist of Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano from the Tru TV series, Impractical Jokers. In the podcast they introduced the idea of a psychotic honey bear named that Sal tried to carry on board a flight. They proposed an animated short contest for the honey bear, who the discovered was named “Nugget.” I made a song inspired by the Hanna Barbera theme songs I loved in my youth to maybe be animated at some point. Below is that glorious song.

 

Here’s an accompanying cover pic for the song.nugg3t
