Lyric

Lobster degenerates
Musical instruments.
Wear your heart on
Your lapel.
Climbing mountains
On stilts and suntans.
I got a stain on my pants
And it’s pissing me off.

Roll your eyes
At my disguise.
See if I care
Cause I got flare.
Flash,
Pizaz,
And a feather hat.

Standing in a field
Like a goat with a stethoscope.
Staring at the cows
And watching them cope.
With a life so short
And meaningless.
Beef for humans
Indentured
Potential food.

Incentive for complacency
Complacency for emergency.
Don’t move for the ambulances
Cause their wasting your time.
Selfish and tasteless
Fat and greedy.
Flicking that butt
Out of the window.

New Photography Project

This is a piece I am working on. I had this photo that I took of one of my favorite places (Green Lakes State Park) and I wanted to experiment with it. What I did initially was split the photo into 3 segments (and created layers for each segment). I used Paint.NET for the image manipulations. Paint.NET is a very basic editor, not anywhere near as sophisticated as Photoshop. But I chose to use it for its simplicity and price.

Each of these pieces shows a part of the original image, obscured with a color, and a large block (or blocks for the center one) of color. The color space is used to show that there is more to the image than just the segment provided in the piece. For each piece, there are two other parts that are missing (from the original photo). I wanted to use bright, solid colors to give an otherwise natural photograph (it’s an image of a tree) an artificial and over-celebrated look. The solid colors provide a stark contrast to the nature of the segment highlighted in each piece.

Thank you for viewing!

New Song, Just a Bunch of Manipulations

I’ve created another song! For this one, I only used one sound that I created using a Text To Speech program (located here). I took that sound file and manipulated it several times, creating a pseudo bassline/drum/rhythm and some melodies.

I like to manipulate sounds, transform them, give them new life and context.
