Well my fair faggots,
Here’s the last installment of my record, Cosmic Surgery. I hope when you are sitting around your Thanksgiving table this week you remember to give thanks to Dynasty Handbag’s childhood traumas for making your life so much better by the gift of music and laughter that she has blessed you with. Then say just kidding! Then go throw up all the guilty meat-eating you just did. Stay skinny!

This is a story about a man who goes to work every day as a drone operator. When he is done with his shift, he goes home to his wife and children and has dinner. His waves of violence penetrate the family unit. His destruction is felt for miles and miles, at the dinner table and in places far away that he will be forever linked to in the minds and hearts of those he hurts. His children feel the vibrations. They know. But they are also his children, so there is heroism involved and desire to be loved. The drone operator is also lonely, because h... More

Hey adoring fans!

Wow, thanks for the 0.00 dollars donated to my PayPal account for the genius recording I posted on Bandcamp for free! So glad I chose this pious life of artistic whoring. I am SURE I could make more sucking “cock” — is it still called that? — more than $9.99 (CD price). Hmmm. I will think on that.

Never mind, I care not. I am too busy blogging to care about money! Anyways it’s Mother’s Day over here at DH headquarters, and I wanted to share with you all two songs from my record that I wrote — ins... More

Jay-Z’s most recent album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, was released on Independence Day of this year.  As an artist, Jay has always been obsessed with numbers and dates, and the timing of this release was not insignificant.  I surmise Jay’s suggestion to be that Magna Carta is of the historical significance of that critical compact between the ki...

Watching the mesmerizing coverage of the Mars Rover landing this summer, I was reminded of video artist George Bolling’s 1974 pioneering, real-time broadcast event Jupiter Flyby which attracted over 25,000 visitors to the Exploratorium in San Francisco between November 26 and December 2 of that year. During the event, Bolling was stationed at NAS... More
