08/03/2013: I recorded 2 songs because I had 2 records for the year 2013 without music and decided to fill them with my new songs "Direct to Brain Windows" and "Nanocam". I don't think I am going to record any more music for a long time after this, because with ULSF05 done, I am now focusing on building robots to help me out with cleaning, and other tasks, etc. Direct_To_Brain_Windows-alt1_Ted_Huntington_20130803.mp3 Nanocam-Ted_Huntington_20130803.mp3
155Ted Huntington - Stop Wearing That Cross.mp3
This song is funny. Remember that song "Southern Cross" by Crosby, Stills and Nash? I changed the words to "Stop Wearing That Cross", because every where I look I see humans wearing a cross. Why not wear a hand gun, hand guns have killed more humans than were killed on crosses.
Show Me The Bruise (parody)
Here is a song based on John Lennon "Give Peace A Chance", my song is "Show Me A Bruise" because unless there is some kind of physical damage (and perhaps pain) nothing else like drug use, or property theft seems to be as important, although I must be alone in this opinion. Yes, drug use seems not as bad as when there is physical damage done to some kind of primate including humans, yet where are the "stop violence" ads, for all the drug ads I see.

Songs recorded in 1999
05-??-1999 Hired 1/2 time (to make a full time 40 hours/week employment) at Univ of Cal at Irvine Libraries. 152Ted Huntington - Brain Imaging Machine.mp3 "Brain Imaging Machine"
The humans at television stations and all parts of government have machines that can see and hear what a brain thinks. Here is a song I call 'Brain Imaging Machine'.
(1/15/2018: I realized that this song is not on this page either but is still on the web server, so adding this now. I would change the lyrics to something more like "The Universe...has always been". Definitely a tribute to the Beatles songs "Getting Better", "A Day In the Life", and "I am the Walrus", of course favorites of mine as a child.) It is somewhat amazing to think about how much I have learned in the years since 1999, in particular in the period 2006-2013 the years that I researched and created the "Universe Life Science Future" project and videos.
Have you ever heard of a song with the name 'The Universe'?
Probably not since most humans still think there is only 1 'world' where everything happens.

(1/16/2018: I was saddened by the death of Dolores O'Riordan of the Cranberries and one of her 2007 solo songs, "Apple of my Eye", (just beautiful songs) sounds similar to this song, so I went to look for it, but found that I somehow had not added it to my YouTube page or this songs page. So fortunately these 3 remixed versions were, like light particles in the unvierse, here all the time on the web server. So I just created 3 new links for them. This song, "Elephant" taps into the style of Rage Against the Machine. The second part is definitely a celebration of the Beatles "I Want You/She's So Heavy". This was still a pretty tough time in my life, but it was just before the beginning of a nice healing period. 152cTed Huntington - Elephant3.mp3 152bTed Huntington - Elephant2.mp3 152Ted Huntington - Elephant.mp3
There is No God (official version)
This song is called 'There is no god' and was made independently of and after the Extreme song of the same name, and the George Carlin talk. Both are awesome messages from Extreme and Carlin, vive le defense of science and truth!
145Ted Huntington - Earth.mp3 (misnumbered) 148Ted Huntington - Earth War.mp3
This song is from the movie "President of Earth" and is when the democratic humans, robots and ships together from Jupiter, Mars and Venus take on the religious military humans that took over planet earth, and the moon of earth by crushing the democracy. It is a great movie that millions of humans have heard in the secret 60 year old camera and thought machine networks. Moon War misnumbered

Thales is one of the first humans to question religion that has been described. I play a violin in this song.
Thales 143Ted Huntington - Thales.mp3 misnumbered 146Ted Huntington - Thales.mp3 145Ted Huntington - SARISAMMTAFB.mp3 (formerly "SAM")
I tried to do a 4 part harmony on the 1,3,5 and 8, and while being better than nothing, most humans will never even try to sing, make a song, etc...after trying once, I think I can do better now, in particular because I have not smoked tobacco or marijuana for 3 years. I can see now that my high range has gone down by 1 whole note or more since then. I was going to make this song, and probably would sing now "Ah Star Light", but this is why I made the "I am Photon" song. While I do not support astrology, I do like the two songs, and the antiwar views in the movie "Hair" that I had seen again. But mainly this song describes my happiness with the amount of light or "sunshine" in California. After living in the NE USA and midwest USA, this is the weather I like more. I remember thinking "ok even if I have no friends, still this weather is awesome!"
This song keeps the memory of John Lennon - I think Lennon would have been a fun human to talk with and hear stories from, same for JFK, RFK, MLK, Bob Marley, George Gershwin, Marylin Monroe, Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin and the millions of other humans less recognized. Where are the images of the last seconds of each human? There must be no images of Elvis and the Beatles jamming, what people (like humans in police, military, multibillion dollar international movie and television media companies) would ever put cameras in the house of Elvis? Think of the millions of humans that have been killed with not one image being shown. Even so, looking at most humans still alive, there is no reason to think that these dead humans would speak out against religion, for pleasure, against marriage, for science, against the arrests for drugs, nudity, sex for money, etc...against violence and damage.
War Is Over (Lennon)
I made a group of songs I am calling the "evolution" group, which was really the beginning of a much smarter period of song writing, after a less pleasant and productive period. Although there are many smart songs from 1992 and after, there was a clear change toward a more specific and directed message such as those of SVTS, CFOAI and most of my songs since then. I started to get smarter about exposing sarisammtafb, speaking out against violence, for science, for full democracy, for full free info, identifying the true problems on earth, the smartest message possible, as opposed to involuntarily echoing out the crap being beamed on my mind.

Songs recorded in 1998
11/1998 hired for half-time job at UCI.
Possibly moved from Heil street to Green Street in Huntington Beach after being evicted because of an argument with a neighbor. Just quickly, she came up to me one day and was angry saying "what did you say to my kid?!", and it was a bad day, in fact this was a terrible period in my life, and I said "fuck off" or perhaps "fuck you". She then filed a complaint with the owners and they gave me 30 days to move. I never said anything other than nice things to her kids, in fact I went to a party they had there earlier. The only thing I can think of is that I might have said something, using the word "galaxies", or science talk, who knows. I can't remember, we will have to check the eye and ear videos. You don't be using no word "galaxy" around here! This was Huntington Beach, and there are some tough characters in HB compared to the UCI area. For some reason the beach areas are always filled with tough tatooed people, and the irony is that this real estate is worth millions...only wealthy people can possibly afford to live in the coast cities. But this change in price is relatively recent. The "Monticello" on Green street was less tough people, and that is where I recorded evolution and the healing process began.
Somehow I had my license suspended for wreckless driving (basically speeding on the 405 coming back from playing on Sunset Blvd/Melrose going over 100mph) and speeding and so was on bicycle for a few months. Things were at a very low point, but then everything got much better or less worse.
133Ted Huntington - A Little More Love.mp3
Top of My Head
I want to explain that this was not a very pleasant time for me, and in addition, many terrible suggestions are beamed on our heads, by terrible people, mostly in our government. So many of the things I say are simply echoing out bad suggestions beamed onto my brain to make me look bad. It's tough to explain, but I'm sure the videos of their eyes and ears helps to show exactly what was going on. So let me explain my current views and talk about some of the things I say in "Top of My Head". First, as I said this was not a pleasnat time, I think I had just been let go from my job, was unemployed, millions of people hear and see us in our houses and thoughts, and try to imagine the frustration of being the victim of that, without seeing those who are watching and abusing you all day. It certainly can create anger in the victims, and no doubt, many times that is the intention of these monsterous controllers of the sarisammtafb (sending and receiving images, sounds, and muscle movements to and from brains) technology. So first of all, any talking about homosexuality, I want to explain clearly that I am a supporter and defender of all bisexual, homosexual, lesbian, and transgender rights, equality, etc. I think that the majority of people probably masturbate to thoughts of opposite and same gender touching, although perhaps the majority lean towards opposite gender thought images, so generally most people are probably bisexual, although leaning more predominantly in a heterosexual direction. Then I think one major issue is my statements about lipstick, cosmetics, and tattooes. Things like lipstick, cosmetics, and tatooes are the least of my worries, and I have nothing against people who use those. I think this is a subtle technique used to try and cause chaos and conflict among nonviolent people, because the big issue is violence and stopping violence, if a person is not violent, all other issues are secondary in my opinion. So the key and most important issue out there on earth is stopping violence, other activities such as drug use, consensual sex, nudity, prost, porn, unpleasant images, privacy, theft, dishonesty, delusion, tatooes, cosmetics, whatever...are all secondary and of far less value. My own opinions are that I choose not to get tatooes for myself, and I think tatooes are unattractive, however, it is only appearance, and there are many fine people with tatooes, and that is only my own view, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, what one person finds unattractive, another may very well find alluring. I find the same thing with jewlery and cosmetics, I don't think they are attractive, but over the years I have come to accept that some cosmetics and/or jewelery might be attractive. For example, I think I have to accept that lipstick on a female performing oral sex on a penis look perhaps more sexual than without, do you think so too or no? In addition, some amount of jewelery might add to sexual arousal, I can accept that. Still, for whatever reason, naval rings, for example, to me, are a turn-off, while for many others they are a turn on, or somehow the naval looks plain without a gem stone there. I don't think lipstick is a homosexual thing, that is stupid, I don't know what I was thinking, probably it was beamed on me. It reminds me of when liberals use anti-liberal arguments to try and bring down conservatives...like that they used drugs....or are gay...when really they ought to be working to end the drug war and homophobia, etc. and those techniques rarely work for that very reason. I don't view Harvard and MIT as the community college of the planet, I think my point was that the current view of science has many apparent errors, and I think many people might privately agree that the secret of sarisamm has caused a large amount of dishonesty and corruption in science and all other fields too. I have a lot of respect for community colleges too, this was before I realized what valuable resources are in so-called community colleges. In the years after this song was recorded, I took numerous welding and machining classes at Orange Coast College, for a very reasonable price, and basically learned the skills of machining and welding there. There is a myth that community colleges are low-brow, less skilled, or embarrassing and I think that's a mistaken belief, because in my experience I found the level of education and instruction to be average if not above average, in particular for the price paid. In addition, there is something about community colleges that people in major universities can learn from because it is a simple fact that at a university I never learned to machine and weld, skills needed to develop walking robots, and which can only be obtained at a community college, so that, I think reveals a larger truth about universities lacking a focus on practical experimental and in particular mechanical skills being too heavily mathematically and theoretically biased. So I have a lot of respect for community colleges, and they fit very nicely into the large picture of science and education. Just the general tone of the song is angry, which is unpleasant. I think that I was heavily influenced by Rage Against the Machine, and in some sense this is my raging against the establishment machine. Some amount of anger at injustice is healthy I think, and beyond that, sometimes we need to say our feelings out loud to understand that they are wrong, otherwise we might continue to maintain that mistaken belief by default. In some way, I view "Top of My Head" as a minimum point in my life, because after that things became less worse. And so it is too with the painted on eyebrows, which is the least of my worries, and I care little about painted on eye brows...and listening to this now I have to chuckle...it's kind of funny....because at the time I was angry and there was a poor woman cashier at a grocery story who had painted on eye brows and that somehow was echoed into my song...and its funny...I mean that is the most petty and trivial thing...almost as if its the last straw for somebody who is fed up with society...so it's funny. Of course, painted on eyebrows, tatooes (or people with ink on their skin), etc...are fine, that is all free expression and absolutely must be tolerated and nobody should be punished for their appearance. I hate to think I may have made people who enjoy those things feel bad, and for that I am sorry. People beam bad suggestions and like so many victims I can't help but interact with what people are beaming on me...it's terrible...because these low brow evil bastards who control the sarisammtafb technology control so much of our lives involuntarily. Interestingly, removing the anger, I still agree with many of the libertarian views expressed in this song, against the drug war, for not arresting people in the prost, etc. My view on drugs, I have stated many times, that I think addiction to recreational drugs, tobacco, alcohol are all probably bad, however, I firmly feel that no person should be jailed or fined for recreational drug addiction. My advice is clear: definitely do not get addicted to recreational drugs, but let's definitely not jail people if they do, and if people addicted to drugs are jailed let it be for only a few weeks until they clean out, become sober again and get a new chance at sobriety. I think honestly that much of recreational drug use is a diversion for young people of their true want for physical affection and pleasure, beyond that young people wanting to be like adults, wanting to challange their brain, or to escape from the boredom or unpleasantness of their surroundings. I don't include the recording in its entirety because it's like just letting a microphone record yourself sleeping, some audio eventually has to be edited away as less unimportant, and this song is somewhat unimportant relative to the rest of my music to begin with. So I'm not censoring the rest, it's just like other audio, it's just not important or good enough to bother with right now, but of course people are welcome to copy and freely examine all my material, I'm not censoring or hiding anything. In addition, saying "take that cross and shove it in your fist" is too angry a message for me nowadays, and although I advise people to convert from religions to more accurate interpretations of the universe, in my experience angry statements are not going to convert people as much as calm accurate and interesting information is going to. And "shove it" is too close to violence (even if self inflicted) for me to support now. As always I should emphasize that I am in favor of nobody being jailed, fined, or locked in a hospital for any religious, delusional or inaccurate beliefs, although certainly it is the free market and free choice for people to choose not to promote or support those people or those ideas. 132cTed Huntington - Top Of My Head_bestof.mp3
06-??-1998 Contract not renewed at Golden West.
Here is an acoustic show I have at "Cafe Rhea" in Long Beach, CA in 1997. There are about 10 songs:

In this song, I have long since figured out that psychology should be consensual only, but another interesting point, that this song is similar to "Life In Dem Fast Life", and I am singing it, and thinking, what would be a cool phrase to sing, like how Henley sings "are you with me so far?", and the criminal beamers beam "get down" which I echo out, and this is a tiny story, but typical of how these evil image and sound senders have operated through much of my life...always suggestions with bad connotations, to make me look arrogant or demonic, etc, for example, I think "get down" even though, for example as KC and the Sunshine Band used it, to mean, get into a song or dance or simply to have funky fun or whatever, has the connotation that people should get down in worship to the singer, which was definitely not my intention (and the same is true for "down for me" in "The Sun", if that was my intention in 1994 which I seriously doubt, than I was wrong, generally I am just saying, the Sun doesn't go down). So all these things it's nice to clear up. This is funny, because a friend in Chicago said that another frind had described me as some kind of "psycho casinova" because we were at a Grateful Dead show in Chicago and this woman started kissing me, and we started going at it. I had a hot dog and had mustard all over my shirt. I lost her number, but gave her my number, and the phone rang the next morning, but I was too hung over and just missed it by one ring. I had so much more success in love in Chicago than in California it was like night and day, but then I had a friend in Chicago who I went out with which I didn't really have in California. 117bTed Huntington - Psycho Casinova2.mp3 117Ted Huntington - Psycho Casinova.mp3 116bTed Huntington - Oh Yeah 2 (Gothic).mp3 116Ted Huntington - Oh Yeah.mp3
This song is for those people that cursed that whiny pretend-God worshiping Jewel Kilcher song "Who Wilst Save Thine soul?", and asked "When will every body get to see those boobs?" woooo boobs!!!! Ok I guess a boob is a boob, if you have seen one you have seen zem all. I seen a nude female human one time.
Jewel is a good looking human, or perhaps photons reflect in a nice pattern off the body of Jewel, but I think there should be more smarts, mo education. For my self I am reading "world" history, stories I never got in high school. I am sure that there are smart female humans on the earth (that recognize there is no soul, and do not clamor about god's eyes, or any other of the pretend all powerful and electrical god's organs).
10/01/07 Still, I think it was very nice of Jewel to sing "My Hands", and that is a talented, pretty song. In some sense, this "Bottom of My shoe" song was kind of mean, but it's kind of a funny poke at those who believe in souls, I hope people don't take my funny statements too seriously. You have to imagine the lives of people, they see and hear our thoughts...we don't see or hear theirs, and so, it makes for some amount of indignation and feelings of an injustice being done to us who are excluded from seeing and hearing thought. 115eTed Huntington - Bottom of My Shoe5.mp3 115dTed Huntington - Bottom of My Shoe4.mp3 115Ted Huntington - Bottom of My Shoe.mp3
This song is referenced in the movie "Contact" where one human says "admit". This is the debate between the using the word "concede" or "admit" and the entire battle of using complex english words, or simple english words. See "Foton Yes, Religion No" for more of this debate. Using more simple words is always optional, and sounds at the level of talk are no reason for a human to be locked in a jail or hospital.
Ok there are at least 7 versions of this song. I couldn't read the data on the lyrics completely for a long time. It was interesting, I had totally forgotten about this song, maybe because this period was unpleasant and not many good songs came out of it, but I sent a tape of this music to my friend Bob Dettor, and he kept talking about this one song that was awesome, and I couldn't figure out which one, but then later when I was in Syracuse he indicated that Diminished was the song he was talking about, and over the years that song has floated up as pleasant. It's ironic because that was a somewhat
unpleasant period. 109Ted Huntington - Diminished.mp3 109gTed Huntington - Diminished7.mp3 109fTed Huntington - Diminished6.mp3 109eTed Huntington - Diminished5.mp3 109dTed Huntington - Diminished4.mp3 109cTed Huntington - Diminished3.mp3 109bTed Huntington - Diminished2.mp3

I did something so stupid, my VCR was set to record the "Ellen" show and it wrote over a video of an Urban Turkey practice. That is such a pisser, and just adds to my acceptance now of how stupid I was, but then I excuse myself because of the way everybody just left me out of the direct-to-brain windows network (as crazy as that sounds), without so much as a molecule of protection against the massive high-tech abuse. Since then, I have done a lot to expose the secret network of 100 year old lies, to equipt other innocent people with even the tiniest defense against it (for example the image beaming on a person's brain machines/transmitters...what ever they are), in addition to speaking out against those currently in power, be they in government, sports, entertainment, religion, or corporations, trying to reveal this aweful truth about how they have been silent about all the crimes and secrets of the past, for example with "Gestapo World", which is a wonderful song, and "Those Aren't Your Friends" also a wonderful song of truth (people, no doubt take an over-sentimental view that...oh it's negative...and wealthy say-and-do-nothing shockingly overpaid and overadmired people are decent and deserve all the attention and money, to ease their worry, there is no hope of this system changing any time soon, but I am glad to have expresses perhaps the only skeptical analysis and observation of this, what is to me obvious, idiocy on the part of the public).

Songs recorded in 1995
I say "Oh I'll see you, I'll see you...in hell" to older female human walking past me from the orange chevette car I bought for $500, just as a funny thing to say in an early morning on my way to work. Jim Carrey then does "I'll see you in hell" skit on Saturday Night Live. In "Dumb and Dumber" one of the songs sounds similar to "Did You Think?".
10/5/06 I play my song "Hands" in these songs which I am going to try and put up here soon. You can see video of one performance that does include "Hands" at video.google.com. As far as I remember this melody was written in Lisle, but I could be wrong, it might have been even Syracuse or La Jolla. But mainly this song was assembled (lyrics and verse part) in La Jolla. This song, in my view, is ok, you know, I don't listen to it too much, mainly I like my more well constructed songs. I think it's a nice melody, and mainly the excitement of this song is that Jewel Kilcher, I think, refers to it (and another song "Jesus was a Good Man", I wrote in Lisle) in her very popular "Hands" song. I just heard Jewel's song "Hands" in Ralph's grocery again, and it is a pretty song, it's a very nice quality recording. I think it's one of Jewel's best songs (of the few I've heard). It's better than that "Who willeth save thine soul?" which is so old worldish in my view (the idea of souls, Infidel Guy dissects the ancient idea of "soul" in one of his videos on video.google.com) which I responded with my song critical of the belief in any soul other than those on our shoes (sole/soal), "Bottom of My Shoe". I was thinking this morning that even as a child I don't think you will find me refering to a "soul", or even "heart" as relates to emotion. When I was young I wrote many songs, I typed little white papers with all the lyrics using a typewriter. Of those songs I can only remember "Fame and Fortune", "Jungle of the Lords" (here we see a belief in "lords" kind of funny...probably polytheistic), "Lady of the Street" (is a copy of Lady Madonna which really impressed me, although interestingly now I see that it is a simple construction as many of the most popular songs are), "Look at the Morning" (was a later song), it's funny the songs that young people make, I am sure that many are copies of songs they hear, but no doubt there are young people who create music using theory such as applying a mathematical pattern, etc. I'm glad I was not indoctrinated with those old theories of souls, etc (clearly Jewel was, as were probably many of those people who enjoy her music), and have since learned part of the history behind those and many other ideas. But that was nice of Jewel to refer to songs or statements made by me. And here, Jewel defeats me with my own literal logic saying "My hands are my own, they're not yours they are my own", where I had said "I can lend you my good hands, Jesus was a good man.". So much of "Photon Yes, Religion No", and the philosophy I believe in, is centered around the idea that we should view things literally, and unless there is physical evidence we should doubt claims of angels, souls, gods, spirits, etc. "My good hands" is in someway saying that our bodies are good and should not be viewed shamefully or as ugly, etc., I don't mean it as much as that I am good with my hands, maybe at the time I partially thought that, but to my memory, mainly it means that our bodies are good and we should not feel that they are dirty or ugly. Perhaps at the time I was making a play on the idea that a god made our bodies, because I was only agnostic at that point, and like most people missing a solid history lesson. I have to say that, "Jesus Was a Good Man" is not a favorite song of mine, I wrote it in Lisle in a very mystic period when I was being taken advantage of by people with the secret video and sound beaming on our heads...I thought a god was talking to me, like so many poor excluded people, but I slowly and tortuously figured out that people were simply using technology to send terrible suggestions onto my head without me knowing at all. Even for all that mysticism, still that song is an effort to reach out to people of this time and say that Jesus was just a man and didn't have any supernatural powers, and it's time to move on with life. Now, I've grown and learned, and have changed my view to thinking that Jesus was probably more of a dim-witted guy, who was duped by the old claim that there is a god and his name is Yahweh. Oh! that's an old one! I wish I had been more on my toes and not fallen for that one, and probably Jesus would have felt the same way had he later been educated instead of unfairly murdered. That one, and Santa Claus, if only I had been more skeptical I wouldn't have wasted my time waiting up all night for the mythical person who didn't bother to show. Like most people, and no doubt foolishly, I believed everything my parents told me as absolute truth. Around the same time that Jesus lived, Pliny the Elder, in Rome was privately composing an encyclopedia, and I view Pliny's work, published after his death, as a larger contribution to life on earth than Jesus' contributions which are very few if any, and ofcourse, the memory of Jesus has many times been used against the actual truth, science and stopping violence. So, still even thought I have changed my view since I wrote "Jesus was a good man", I still think the song reflects a smart message of Jesus as just a human, time to drop the religion, etc. It's still progressive even now. So that was very nice of Jewel to write "Hands" and it's a pretty song. I don't believe in gods so I obviously reject the last part about "God's eyes" as tainting what is a pretty and well constructed song. I hope the public gets more skeptical of religion and takes an interest in science and the future, then perhaps I might be more accepted and popular, but the public and in particular the wealthy distributors of music rejected then and still reject most of my music and view my message with hostility and perhaps fear. Mostly, I think the lesson in music is that if you want people to hear your music you have to pay to have it distributed, but beyond that, most people, being religious are going to reject songs critical of religion. I will never give up on the message of telling the truth about religion, science, history, etc. and for me the money is not important, it's that society learns the truth, that we allow full freedom of information, that we allow ourselves to enjoy pleasure, that we fulfill our goal of growing to other stars, that we make full democracy and stop all the violence here on earth, etc. So I think as time continues, people will learn more and look back at my and other people's works and perhaps they will not appear as controversial as they did. I'm hopeful and optomistic about the future.
Clearly there is something wrong with my order of songs, I need to rehaul my system. I tool these from my final mix recorded DAT tapes which now I can't play because my DAT player is broken. So I am going back to the original 4-track tapes and going to record to hard disk, which is always a nerve racking process because I don't want to ruin the tapes, but yet want to have at least some kind of digital copy of them. I would like to make digital copies of each track some time.
02-01-1994 Moved from Syracuse,NY to La Jolla, CA (San Diego)
Around 1993 a wonder young woman, Caroline Grove, who was studying at Syracuse University, made a nice video documentary of the open mike night at "East LA", called "Night In the Lime Light". In my mind, this has become a cult classic, and I know this, because of the endless "snappy comeback" lines that I hear in between the endlessly meandering talk of the film's stars. This was about a year after I recorded "Sermon: The Gospel Truth", "How Long", "To Make You Stay", "Let It Go", and so many other secret classics, and so is a good historical document of what was happening in that after math. Enjoy!
I give you the song 'Pot Grower', Andy Deer and Bob Dettor play on this, making me think I should have added more or any female humans to the 'fun'. Stop the drug war, drugs cause no damage to humans other than self, and guns are legal and do more damage than any drug! Why stop drug making, learning and experimenting with consent? I like to think I own my own body and decide what to put in and take out.
I think this audio is from a video tape. This is a practice session of Urban Turkey and I cannot remember exactly but I can kind of sense that I was getting somewhat frustrated with this phase of my life. I enjoy the rendition of Jimi Hendrix's "Are You Experienced?"
A series of things happens. First, my popularity, the number of people viewing me possibly increases (although people refer to me even from a young age, probably mainly from my early anti-war protest songs which perhaps seemed cute to liberal people, I can only guess). And with this increased popularity comes the terrible people that use the secret technology of video and sound sending to popular people's heads to try and steer the herd of those watching. And without question, those in power using these machines have very very bad ethics, and beliefs. People are sent off cliffs, and into violence, all kinds of terrible suggestions are beamed onto their heads by those people who have usurped this technology that may go back even to 1310 and at least to Galvani in 1791. So, sadly, there was no counter-balance to this evil majority within the mind-machine network. Of if there was, they certainly did nothing to help me. Nobody bothered to even tell me that people could hear thought, even when the abuses of my mind were becoming more and more dangerous. Like most of the poor excluded, they have to educated and fend for themselves, its terrible, and you can see that, for example, look how the JFK murder is still covered up to this day, it's clear that evil people are in power and are 98% unchecked, liberal people are almost nonexistent, or it appears their power and influence is still very small, but I think all of that will change sometime, mainly as the education gets better for young people, but it's a slow and tortuous process that will take perhaps a few centuries before even hearing thought and the story of remote neuron reading and writing is common knowledge. So, for example, "Is It Dead" is probably one of the primary songs that reflects the result of this abuse. Although, even with all the brain sending abuse, that resulted in far fetched erroneous mystical predictions of mythical bloody futures, still the song relates to the idea of matter being non-living, and that since all matter is the same in the universe, life is a natural mechanical part of matter in the universe, and so we might ask if all matter is alive too (with perhaps a play on the idea of a robot being alive, although I think humans will always view robots as property, no doubt there will be robots very good at defending their existence/bodies). I'm glad I slowly emerged from the shockingly powerful influence of the brain-sending abuse (although even now most of us are still assaulted and given bad suggestions by this massive criminal network constantly) probably around 2000 when there was no longer any doubt in my mind about people seeing and hearing thought and sending images and sounds to people's heads, and also when I started reading about the history of science.
My red blazer is stolen in Chicago while visiting with my friend Dawn. Was a victim of people in the remote neuron reading and writing, direct-to-brain windows aparteid segregation for awhile. Then my memory fails me, but a few months later I think I flew back to Syracuse, got my mom's car, drove back to Lisle and moved back to Syracuse.
My black S10 blazer is stolen in Chicago. Most of the Cengiz and TP and other sound recordings are in the the two Blazers, leaving only a fraction of the recordings with TP.
I then get a red S10 blazer as a replacement, like a fool I leased both (but then with a theft I guess it doesn't matter). This may be when "I'm Loving Life 2" with the sax melody made famous in "All That She Wants" may have been lost (probably at least a final mixed version), but it's possible that I accidentally overwrote the original 4-track recording when recording in the "I Don't Want To Marry You overwrite accident". To my memory I think "All That She Wants" uses an extra note. To me it's an honor to be copied, I don't view it as something bad. It's almost always people that share many of the same views I do about injustice, etc. In some ways it's a movement of smart people and wisdom that I am a part of, pushing for education, pleasure, progress, and for stopping suffering, violence and injustice.
I'm Lovin Life 2. The beginning organ intro is very similar to a song I heard on the radio (that has a really cool organ part very similar to the intro into this song_ when living in Lisle. Not sure when this was recorded, but some time around here, but this contains that famous sax riff that is similar to "All That She Wants". This version was a later more polished version and there may have been a rougher first draft that just had the bare tenor sax- I simply cannot remember and that may have been recorded over, lost, or one of those stolen in one of my blazers. But nonetheless, you can hear the tenor part on this recording. Lovin' Life 2

??-??-1992 funding from US DOE stops, funding from U of Pennsylvania starts.
I Don't Want To Marry You
In this period of song writing, my interest in making a song with a progressive message is evident- although only much later would that view become my primary method, the view of "I am not going to record a song unless there is a meaningful message- I prefer not to record a trivial song in my head- there needs to be a message or it is a waste of precious time and/ or is not going to be at a level of excellence I want.". So I wrote this song, which is somewhat controversial in questioning the tradition of marriage. When I first heard Nirvana's 'All Apologies' from 'In Utero', and Kurt Cobain singing "marry!" "bury!"- as I recall, I had a little feeling of excitement- because, as was the case for "All That She Wants"- I instantly recognized that it may have been a reference to one of my songs. So I felt that many people must be hearing my songs, and it gave me a sense that I and the music I was recording had a strong influence on the planet. Hearing people echoing your messages on the radio, television, and movies- makes a person really feel like they are where it is at- what is really the focus of the planet and the center of progressive thought and popularity. It messes with a D2B denied person's mind, because they are sensing that many people are watching them, and that they have a large audience, and a lot of influence, but yet, the reality is that they are still a poor person who needs to work a day job. Now, looking back in 2017, over 20 years later, I think this coincidence of Cobain singing 'marry/bury' and my 'marry/bury' is probably one of two phenomena: 1) Perhaps with the wealth that came from 'Nevermind', Kurt had enough money and connections to get D2BW and was looking, like all the other D2B consumers at interesting videos from around the world, and probably like many people heard and saw my recordings- and recognized that the message was smart and interesting, and so, like others at that time, echoed support for the music I was doing. If that is the case, it definitely is an honor for Kurt and Nirvana, and anybody else to have supported my efforts. The other possibility is that 2) Kurt was a D2B denied for all of his life, and the same neuron writers that wrote 'mary/bury' on my neurons wrote a similar message of Kurt's neurons. This theory suggests that there is some powerful, very influential, neuron writing group that is promoting criticism of religions and other stupid traditions, and that they are using neuron writing on poor D2B denied people who echo out those neuron writings. So it can definitely be the case that two outties can echo out the same or similar messages without ever having seen or heard each other. Thinking back, I think the C to A change in the chorus may have been influenced by Nirvana's unconvential chord progressions- there was definitely a thought that new music should break the 1-4-5 blues and other traditional chord progressions at that time, but personally, I still wanted to maintain a non-radical non-chaotic chord progression as much as possible.
With 'Urban Turkey' I played this song at the Wescott Festival a few years later (see 1993)
One last note I must say about Cobain is that does his death not so fit the mold of the desires and history of the 9/11 Kennedy-Lennon-King jr remote galvanic murderers? To kill popular liberal people like Kurt Cobain they are saying to the public "Here's your popular figure: down the tubes!" as they secretly cackle with joy in some back unseen room.
Humans should be mating, not marrying! Humans want variety, not the same old gruel! Humans should not go against this natural, biological need. Later in Syracuse, Andy Deer and Bob Dettor joined me in playing this song live a few times.
I Don't Want To Marry You overwrite accident
Except for one master tape that was lost, only a small part of the original "I Don't Want to Marry You" recording survives on a 4-track tape. I accidentally overwrote it with either "Same Thing" or "Loving Life". But I went back and rerecorded, and I still had the midi file, in fact, the midi files are probably all gone now, as I recall they were all on 5.25" floppy disks.
After I heard "Baby Got Back", I immediately made "Big Breasts", because I have a need top express my love of more large than average natural breasts, the main thing for me in a female of the humans is a nice smart brain, any breast is only a added plus. There is no chance of wed. Now, after I made this here song, some females from the human made a song "no want no short dick man", in fact a double negative indicating a short dick man is wanted. Why not a more positive song? hmmm? Like "gimme big dick, gimme big dick, gimme big dick already and a healthy set 'a balls". After breasts, balls, ass, butt, what else is left? Vagina? I did make a song "Penis in Vagina" so other "vagina" songs or perhaps the occasional clitoris song will follow.
I was happy to hear a person sing the words "To Make You Stay", or as I some times sing with the song "To Make Yo Dum Ass Stay...now kiss me kiss me foo..I want every body else and you...foo" To Make You Stay
Vivaldi: The Four Seasons Spring (with distorted guitar)
I was calling this "Mozart" because I know so little about history...to me this sounds like Mozart. Vivaldi was a very skillful composer (and violinist) that lived in the late 1600s and early 1700s.
Sermon: The Gospel Truth
I was diggin in to this song, and then I heard the Lenny Kravitz song, and I dug into that. But I sing that "It Aint Over til its Under", I have always been good with words.

Is It Dead?
This is probably the peak of the mysticism in me, but even so it still is an interesting song. The main point of this song is that since all matter is really the same thing in the universe, perhaps even non-living matter is in some sense, alive, certainly it's all made of the same material. Also, this is a thought about robots reaching a stage where they are probably smarter than humans and it's interesting to think that some robot might be very difficult to destroy...in other words very good at protecting itself, but still there are physical limits to what any object in the universe can do. Later around 1994, the Cranberries made their song "Zombie" which is a nice song, and may refer to this song, but maybe not, I don't really know for sure. I was initially impressed by the vocal technique of the vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, and I wanted to add that technique somehow into my music, but haven't found the opportunity to yet. This song may be a play on the opening line "Here inside my head" with O'Riordan's lyric "What's in your head?", but maybe I am wrong. If that is a reference to me or my song, ofcourse I certainly appreciate it. It's tough to be sure because I don't see. I think possibly the line "it's the same old theme since 1916", a reference to the Easter Revolution (I know so little about history it's sad), may also be a play on the secret of hearing thought which was in 1913. It's interesting that the number of murders in Ireland per capita is far less than that of the USA. The USA has a much larger homicide (and violence) problem than Ireland does. The message in the song is a positive one in any event, and it is rare to hear the word "violence" (and then well put together with "silence"). And this was before the "stop violence" movement and music I am doing and started thinking about around 1998 (with "shot dead") and started recording around 2000 (with SVTS). I think if we scan back through history, we won't find many (in particular successful) anti-violence songs that specifically or even abstractly refer to violence.
10/02/07 Adding more notes to "Is It Dead": I almost didn't add this song because I don't want people to get the wrong idea, and I'm not particularly proud of some of my songs where I was unaware that bad suggestions were being beamed onto my head. I think there will be numerous appeals by people convicted of crimes once everybody understands how images, and sounds can be sent directly to a person's brains, and how the secret videos reveal that the crime they committed was the result of a beamed suggestion that they unknowingly accepted and followed. So anyway, I interpret this song now as saying "...and look what they were beaming on my head....!....all this gruesome imagery and terrible suggestions...". Unlike Stalin, the Warren and 9/11 Commissions, I reject the idea of trying to reshape history to my present day advantage. I accept the truth, however unpleasant, about my mistakes of the past. Beyond that, I've never killed or seriously hurt anybody, so I don't feel that what ever I have done has been so seriously bad. As I recall at the time I had seen some metal bands in Chicago and probably was inspired to try and write a metal song. I still think, for example, metal, speed metal, etc are impressive and have a solid place in music, I can see using music like that as a background for ships going to other stars, or some star system war, etc. But my key message to people is "watch out for the beamed-on suggestions", know that evil people are beaming on to our heads all the time, and that thoughts, images and sounds in our minds, may not be, and in fact many probably do not originate from our own brain but from outside technology, believe it or not. One thing about a lot of heavy metal that to me is annoying is the constant "devil" aspect of so much of heavy metal music. To me it's stupid and funny at best, dangerous and evil at worst. In my opinion, there is no Devil, but there certainly are evil people as we humans define evil, in particular those who do violence against humans, that cause pain, etc. I hate to see the wonderful sound of heavy metal tainted by idiotic religion, or appeals to violence, dishonesty, etc. But for whatever reason, many Christians like the "Devil" aspect of metal, or else it wouldn't sell. So "Is It Dead", which has much more than dreary allusions to death, but also the analogy to robots being alive...for example the line "is it dead?" is used in the movie "Terminator 2", and of course, the Cranberries did "Zombie" which is a kind of an anti-war exposing the thought technology song, which has nothing to do with mysticism. So I would put "Is It Dead?", with the "Ellen" and "Top of My Head" group of songs as being somewhat unpleasant for me, knowing now that I was such a victim of beamed suggestions. But yet, I accept the reality of the past and I'm not trying to hide it in any way. I have said that I don't doubt that people in the CIA actually wrote some of the lyrics in John Lennon's songs, such as "Out of the Blue you came to me, and blew away life's misery" ... and then what's more...those assholes got me to sing it! What a terrible bunch of murderers with advanced technology...and this is precisely how they take advantage of innocent people who are unaware that people figured out how to send images and sounds directly to brains a long time ago. Maybe a person like Mark Chapman heard "Out the Blue" and thought Lennon was calling out to Chapman to "blow away life's misery" (instead of Yoko who was the probable subject, and "blow away" as in nonviolently remove negativity from Lennon's life like wind). You can see how such messages are probably suggested by evil insiders who dominate much of the planet, and innocent victims simply echo them out. I am glad that I finally figured this out, and am taking the message out to all of you, like so many millions of liberals and honest people should have done years before now! Where were they? Where are they? How can they be this stupid, negligent and insensitive?
018Ted Huntington - Come Alive flaw.mp3
10/05/06 I don't think the melody of this song is overly fantastic, but the words I enjoy. I think possibly that Peter Gabriel refers to this and my other song "Get Real" when he said "Get alive, with the dreamer's dream" which is very nice of him if true. Gabriel clearly is a smart person to speak out against racism in such songs as "Biko". I think he is an evolutionist, and perhaps skeptical of religion (this is not entirely clear because some of his songs have traditional Christian references, he's probably godder or agnost, ahaha to put it perhaps crudely) in addition to being a talented lyricist, vocalist, composer, and (I think although I'm not sure what instruments) instrumentalist.
017Ted Huntington - How Long.mp3 016Ted Huntington - Friend.mp3 016bestofTed Huntington - Friend.mp3 015Ted Huntington - Sliding Am Blues.mp3 014Ted Huntington - Anything.mp3
Here's a positive song. Speaking of the jazz fusion rock sound, the melody of this is similar (and I hope not exact) to a melody played by a group that was last under the name of "Joe God" (which is a fine name...it shows the brainyness of Nanni, and no doubt the religious skepticism), which was mainly Mark Nanni and Brian Stone, and then for a time, Eddie Nolan and other people I don't know jammed with them. Mark even when young was definitley at the top of piano skill, and he once played my some music made by Stone and it sounded very professional, similar to a Pink Floyd sound. So those two are examples or people who really should have been picked up and developed, because I know they have recorded some wonderful music, but who knows where it is? Actually Mark does have a web page, this is the wonderful thing about the web: http://www.myspace.com/marknanni. How interesting to hear this stuff. I would call this really almost older jazz style. The group he is in is "The Intention": Bebop. Blues and Ballads. You know, the stuff he was playing in ...let's see we called ourselves "Glass Roses", "Oracle", "Epilogue"...they were "Resolution". Yeah, this is interestingly old time jazz, like "All of Me"...I don't really listen to that kind of thing, but then I listen to classical...I am interested in history, and the history of music is interesting to me. But just to say that the stuff Mark was doing when I saw him was more like the Chick Correa, distorted guitar fast moving solo kind of music that I think is more interesting, but this old-time jazz probably is more sellable to an older crowd, and they tend to have to cashish. You can hear Mark's technical skill on "Who's Hipper Than Bill", I told yiz, he is definitely skilled I piano. 013Ted Huntington - Order and Chaos.mp3
This song is very old indeed (for my own life span). I wrote this on piano when young. This shows some of the jazz influence that I learned in high school in Incognito. There are technical rough spots, and again this needs to be smoothed out. I also jammed on this song with Jack Conlin and Bob Detter, and I may actually have that on tape somewhere.
But this line of music is a nice line, and it's underrated. I compare it to, like Chick Correa, Return to Forever, just a mixing between rock and jazz, but with fast technical soloing. I don't hear enough of this kind of music, and the later Correa stuff doesn't sound as exciting from what I have listened to. I know there are groups out there doing this, but the free flow of info is so bad at this time that only the elites in the neuron net, and D2B consumers can hear them.
012Ted Huntington - Spinning Round flaw.mp3
Again an experimental song. As I remember I did consciously want to express the view that the earth is spinning around, ... the sun-centered theory. Even today, many people don't think of the earth as rotating. You can see, this was before I knew that thought can be heard, that I was trying to make scientific progress through common language. I was trying (and still am) to progress the common human education together forward into the future.
It's also a song for my mom. There are some of my songs that try to reach out to my mom and help her cope with problems. It's frustrating to see people making unrealistic choices, and it's something that is not specific to my mom, me or anybody else, just knowing that 70% of people reject evolution, and so many believe Jesus rose from the dead, that thought can't be heard, etc. there is a lot of inaccurate opinion, and everybody feels that their current view is the perfect view, or else obviously they would change their opinions. Some of these songs, for example Misery, are too overly-sentimental, or simply sad.
At the time of writing these lyrics, I wasn't vegetarian (I am now, although I do eat eggs and dairy, and rarely fish), but you can hear me debating the view of "the animals we have to kill", that this troubled me and that I thought (and still do) that it's an issue we should discuss and not keep secret (ie the killing of animals for food). I am glad I finally did resolve this in favor of vegetarianism, and I feel better for that choice.
To this song's credit, I stuck with violin with the acoustic and that is different from mainstream. We don't hear violin in a symphonic strike in most pop music, and it adds a dramatic element to this song.
There is some key advice to people with psychiatric goons on their tails: "don't let them see you mad", and that is my advice for getting freed from the psychiatric hospital...the less you yell, fight or cause trouble probably the faster you can get out, think of it like Auschwitz but less severe.
011Ted Huntington - The Answer.mp3
The melody I wrote on piano when young. I probably would change the lyric of a "woman romancer" as reaching a little to far to rhyme, and the lyric changed years ago, from "the next thing that I want to see is you coming back to me" to "the next thing that I want to feel, is you coming on to me". It's about a female being equal with males in terms of initiating affection and relationships, but generally pro-sexuality. We still have not reached the period of awakening to criticism of the establishment.
010Ted Huntington - Square.mp3
The title of this song is simple a square shape. I decided to push the boundary of song titles. The melody is very very simple and has been done many times. My friend told me that she heard the exact same melody on the radio (although I haven't ever actually heard the same melody, I can't believe it hasn't been done, it's simply D G A). The thing that I think is memorable about this song, as is the case with most of my songs are the words. Here again, this is on the same theme as "Same Thing", that humans create systems over a uniform universe. But mainly to get people (including myself) thinking outside of the box in terms of mathematics, and to explore math and language.
009Ted Huntington - Sexy Woman.mp3
I probably got the idea for this lyric from Jimi Hendrix's "Foxy Lady", ... "Sexy Woman" hasn't been covered yet to my knowledge. Here, we can see this appreciation for female humans, for the female body, that women are sexy, that we should celebrate that (and all) sexuality. In this repressive society, it's not as easy to express this view, but I decided that it was such a part of me (obviously sexuality has been a large part of my life whether I wanted it to be or not, and clearly I enjoy physical pleasure perhaps more than most). This song is ok, it's one of the few that is less experimental. The octave part sounds similar to WhiteSnake "Slow and Easy" (you know "so take me down Slow and Easy they look to me slow and easy..." and so that lowers the value of the song. It's one of the few songs that can actually be played successfully in a bar.
008Ted Huntington - Same Thing.mp3 008bestofTed Huntington - Same Thing.mp3 (from "best of" tape)
This was written at this time, and is an experimental song. It's interesting when comparing the Sonatas of Mozart and Beethoven, because I generally like listening to those of Mozart more than Beethoven, and I think the reason why is that Mozart was more conservative where Beethoven was more experimental, in my novice opinion. Mozart also was very original and creative, and was probably the better at music composition, but Beethoven I think is recognized as perhaps the greatest composer of all time, even though he only has 9 symphonies while Mozart wrote 41. I think this is simply from the power of Beethoven's successful experiments. And while experimenting results in progress and memorable pieces, many times, it's too much to listen to while working for example. I think experiment is probably what evolves music forward into new realms...initially the new technique (for example jazz) is probably viewed with perhaps some hostility (but perhaps many times, it's newness is greatly appreciated).
This song is of the group I would call science-based like "The Sun", but also "anti-racism". Interestingly, Michael Jackson, I think, liked the opening line of "It's just the same thing, no matter if it's black or white", and refers to this in his song "Black or White" which I enjoy, that's a good song, and Jackson is good at song composition, as is Slash in composing guitar melodies. So, as bad as this song may be, I don't listen to it often, it's overly dramatic, but then it was an experiment anyway. The main purpose of the lyric was to express the idea that everything is the universe is one thing, and that we humans simply draw boundaries around different parts of the universe. We can say "person" "book" etc but really there is a continuum of atoms, and the universe is one thing, and every thing in some sense is the same thing. It's just to open people's minds, and ofcourse, these separations into various nouns, etc are useful and the basis of language. It's nice that I made an early appeal against racism. In terms of melody, I tried to make the melody appear to be the same chord changing only very little, so even the melody was the same thing.
This early recording is not as good as a later recording that was more developed, and then also listen to the Urban Turkey version, for some reason I liked the song during that period.
007Ted Huntington - Beauty.mp3
I wrote this around this time using the Korg M1 keyboard I had. Although the melody is simple, and there are no other parts, the lyrics are nice and progressive and it is an early appeal to lighten up (and I dare say grow on up) about nudity, and expresses the trajedy of the view that the human body is ugly.
I did a new vocal for "Beauty" around 1997
006Ted Huntington - Waiting for the Words.mp3
The melody I wrote when young, and it is a play on Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake which is a beautiful melody. When I wrote these words, I still had not figured out what I view as the secret of lyric writing: expressing complaints about injustice, unfairness, and beyond that educating and promoting science, questioning the current views. Basically, a good lyric is something that says something that needs to be said in my view (although, perhaps the most popular songs use lyrics designed to be generic to apply to the most people possible, to agree with the most people...this is why love songs are so popular, they don't confront anybody, they don't buck the system of mainstream beliefs). The lyrics that come easiest for me are those I write when I am angry about some injustice, when I have many ideas to express, for example about science that have not been heard by the majority. And then you can see, that lyrics have a purpose beyond being another instrument in a song, that they can popularize a message to end injustice. Song is a powerful tool to get a message across. But this was in a period where I was still struggling to have something to say...I simply did not have anything really good to say, but all this changed when I entered into the "Sermon" phase and cast off societal inhibitions in favor of honesty and societal progression.
I have since added some violin undermelody, but I doubt it will ever get recorded there is nowhere near enough time for that.
005Ted Huntington - You Dont Know Me.mp3
The melody was written when I was young. I actually like this song, and with much of my music, you have to understand that it's just a rough idea. None of my songs are "professional" recordings, and I am the performer, and sound engineer on the vast majority of all my song recordings. One suggestion I offer is to think of me as a member in a band of 4 or 5 people, and each of them write songs. They then record their song in a rough style, maybe with just an acoustic and microphone, or piano, maybe even with a drum track. They then bring these recordings in for the others to hear, the 4 or 5 people hear all the songs from each member and all vote on the songs with the most potential. The rest are sent back to be tossed out, for personal recordings only, or gone back over, improved, and brought back to the rest of the group. So, that is the way I would look at these recordings, and that was the feeling they were (and are) recorded in...it's me basically laying down some rough idea of a song...almost all of them are first tries, only a few have been re-recorded and improved. So I overlook timing errors, and off-key notes that plague my music. It's shocking to me that some of my music might actually hold up to professionaly recorded songs, and here I was just messing around with a four track tape recorder and keyboard drum samples.
In terms of music, I like both parts, but the slap bass needs to be changed to an actual bass. In terms of lyrics, there is not much here, but I like the second part (I can hear a nice background vocal that would be nice on the second part). Very few of my songs have a "bridge" or third part, which is typical among most pop songs now and for years.
004Ted Huntington - Goodbye.mp3
I don't have many "picked" songs. This is one of that style that I rarely use. The words are ok, it's not a song I listen to. Once it made my cry when I was playing it in a coffee house, but I was sad then anyway. I like the expression of how many times I would love to have talked to a person but was too shy...it's a trajedy, I wish I wasn't so shy. I can only imagine where two people could be in love, but too shy to ever talk to each other...it probably happens in high-school all the time.
003Ted Huntington - Matter In Time.mp3
It is hard to remember, but I think this was song I wrote at this time. Here we can see the developing of an interest in science, the universe, open communication, positivity, all themes of later music. The idea of we are all just matter in time, is just a probing into the current view of the universe by a novice, and is similar to the line "light equals time"...just novice early attempts at trying to understand the universe and express new theories. This thinking will eventually solidify in later years with "I am photon", and more accurate, less abstract views on the universe. These early recordings definitely express the overly-sentimental feeling that dominates this era. In particular the "are you ok?" psychiatric hyperness, while gentleness and concern is nice, it's overblown, as if people are babies in diapers, and ofcourse the view of forced psychiatric treatment was something I was only dimly aware of, you can hear in my music as my views change to believing in psychological theories to ofcourse total rejection of psychiatric theory in "Psychology". Still, I am proud that if there is any sentimentality in my songs it is a more progressive view. Ofcourse in "How Long?", one friend called "the mean song", (which I wondered at, because it doesn't seem mean to me), I confront this sentimentality and that phase with "Sermon", "Pot Grower", "I Don't Want To Marry You", "Big Breasts" in my view, resulted in some of the best music. But at this point I was still recording songs (mainly melodies I wrote before and adding lyrics at this time) I had already written, and the intellectual content was only hinted at.

Here is a song Paul McCartney has heard, and the remaining 3 Beatles use a similar progression on "when did we lose the touch". Perhaps it is just coincidence or beamed on their brains, but perhaps they were saying hello to a person who cares for the memory of John Lennon, and was also profoundly saddened by his death. To think that some people would view a murder of one of the brightest and funniest minds of our time as a good thing is terrible.
This song is one of those developed when I was young. I later added words to lament the suicide of a friend, and suicide in general, which gave this a sad context that was not really the original intention of the music.

This is the first song I recorded with my four-track, I start counting songs with this as 1, but I need to go through and actually catalog my songs. For example Song 1 is probably more like "Leaving Town", or perhaps the material I wrote for a crayon colored story book, of which I can only remember a character named "Beryl", perhaps a creature named "fuzzywumple", a king...it was probably influenced by Mr Rogers.
Infact, there are many songs, such as "Fame and Fortune", that I wrote, and typed words too, with a typewriter, when young, but I only remember pieces of them. I wrote many, perhaps 20 songs. Eventually, the songs were more simple, or bland...although creative, I would just write anything.
I wrote this song when very young, on piano. There are a series on songs that I had developed over my youth, and these are most of the first songs I recorded. Because I didn't have any new ideas, and my musical skills are limited (I don't pretend that I am a virtuoso, mainly I am proud of my lyrics, my instrumental skills are lacking, but I am listening to classical music and strive to improve and understand more musical theory), I simply chose to record the songs I had already created.
One funny thing about these songs is that I didn't realize that I should be using some reverb on my vocal, and so it sounds like the voice is right there for these first songs. And it worried me...why does it sound so much like on a tape recorder microphone? Maybe I bought a different microphone, but I don't think so, I am pretty sure it was simply adding some reverb on the amp.
??-??-1992 Moved from Aurora, IL to Lisle, IL, I buy a black S10 blazer.
I am confused as to which songs were recorded in Aurora, because I can only remember recording Flavia's vocal on I Miss You 2 there. But yet, my memory of that song is that it is later after other recordings, but yet I remember most recordings being made in Lisle.

I was in a "house band" in AXP, the fraternity I was in when I attended Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY, and here is a recording from one night when "AGO" a sorority my girlfriend was in at the time- it's funny how we play their theme song and get them to sing along :-) Understand that 90% of the people there are probably a little tipsy. Some part got recorded over by my c1993 4-track recording of "Flavia" which is what sounds like backwards audio. AXP_Band_c1991_side1.mp3 AXP_Band_c1991_side2.mp3
TP and Cengiz live in same room again record second stream of jams.
Cengiz has sampler. Most of these recordings are stolen and only a fraction remain with me.
Some of the funniest recordings I remember are the time Cengiz says:
"I'm not fooling", and I say "Your not fooling us", and Cengiz says "hell yeah..."
and "I'm a take care of this situation and theres a problem and it's my man theo p, making up the rhyme so you can see how fresh this scam can get".

Homer Simpson says "Bust It" in one "Simpsons" animated show.
10/15/07 Some people requested that I put up some of the "Chuck MC and Theo P" raps, and this stuff is basically just recordings of Cengiz and me just goofing around with a keyboard, microphone and a headphone used as a microphone. I think at least one tape of these recordings is missing, and possibly was stolen along with a blazer I owned in Chicago around 1992. So some jams are sadly missing. Some of this stuff, the quality is so poor I am somewhat embarassed to release this, but people requested it, so you have been warned, listen at your own risk.
There were two years of CMC&TP recordings 1987-88 and 1989-1990. The first sessions were the funniest and rawest, although the least sophisticated. Most of what remains is the second session, which is more sophisticated (if it can be called that), but not as raw and funny. Tedrix and "slide some o dat cake on my tongue" is from the first session, while "Bongs" is from the second session. I can't find:
1987-88: "I can't quit you Chuck MC and Theo P"
1987-88: "You're Not Foolin us, hell yeah, this is a problem and I'm going take care of it..."
1987-88: "Is this (headphone) the mic I'm supposed to be using? I can't hear myself"
1989-90: "Let me Tell you about a rapper MC..now stop and pack a bong-hit for your uncle Ted"
1989-90: "On the oriental tip is my man is Theo P, botta-botta-botta"
??: "You all wanna see what Im doing? hang out listen to the crew"
A while ago I threw together some remaining recordings, and so this is not the straight raw recording, if you can believe it. In fact I even re-edited this down more this time around. Some funny things are missing. Just miscelleneous trivia: "Slide some o dat cake" is from a porno where a black guy with a Lousiana bayou accent is licking a woman's vagina and has cake and milk on the vagina. Most of the stuff that Chuck MC and Theo P do are copies of other people, but with their own stoner low-budget style. Some songs are totally original such as "I am the homey, you give me some pussy". One part of the jam towards the end is similar to a U2 jam "God part 2" that came later, and I wonder if even U2 were CMC&TP afficianados, probably just coincidence. It's sad, the material that is gone, because it was funny, now it's only in my memories, and perhaps a few hundred secret remote neuron dust-sized nano-cameras cam-thought net phone company recordings, and that one or two tapes somewhere possibly still intact around Chicago. I might possibly still have some recordings somewhere, but it's doubtful, I would have to scan through all my tapes, and there isn't time, but maybe an intern can sometime, or we can just get copies from the phone company. 01_BestofChuckMCandTheoP.mp3

Little thought is given to how hidden cameras got into every room and how millions came to watch.

Our teen band "Glass Roses" (later "Oracle") played "Johnny B Goode" at Jamesville-DeWitt Middle School and were swarmed by people after, or possibly people were just existing because I think we were the last act and the show was over. Either way it was very exciting and fun. Sadly we all went back to our fort, smoked cigarettes (at like age 11-12- just disgusting neuron writing on us) and chattered into the night.
I do not have any video of that performance, but I do have what I think is an earlier practice of Johnny B. Goode. This is probably the earliest recording of any of our teen jamming years.
