imagined album cover

Many who have been following me over the years know that occasionally I create album covers for imagined bands and music. Well it’s been a while. This image was inspired while listening to some thoroughly baked modern jazz.

The band members in my imagined recording are Sol Mucky, Chick Scully, Michael Missin & Charlie Winter collectively knows as MSMW. The album: MOTHER SAYS MORE JAZZ WAFFLES which I think is a totally boss title. LOL. I imagine the following track list:

  1. Mama Shakes
  2. Lovin’ On The El Train
  3. Groove My Polyester
  4. Jazz Waffles, No Syrup
  5. 3″ Platform Souls
  6. Phantasm And Ectoplasm
  7. Rocket Ride To The Honey Jar

If you can imagine hearing the music above and like it, let me know. If not maybe you’ll like this….. 🙂

AS WE ARE

There is always hope and beauty – no matter how water-logged and dark our lives may seem at times.

FYI- this will be my last post for this month.  I’m taking off the rest of September.   God willing, I will see you all in October 2020.  Peace Out.

Got a problem?   Too Bad, “Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Goodbye!” 😉

It’s time to fly this acid world, retool and re-energize.

A Tree Dreams Of Branches

 

A TREE DREAMS OF BRANCHES

 

One broken limb

splintered and

disconnected from its roots

frozen in time

a tree locked in its icy reverie

dreams of branches

becoming whole once more

veins growing outward

with the hope of leaves

only cracks in reality

Springs slow thaw

In the current political climate regarding migrants in the United States and the world – this image can be a visual metaphor for the futility of walls(“fences”) and gives me hope for the future. We should be using our resources to build bridges – NOT walls!
