DEPRESSED WOMAN

i created a bandcamp site for the band i'm in, DEPRESSED WOMAN.

i posted the instrumental versions of six songs i wrote. i'll post the versions with vocals in them and the tracks my boy wes made soon. we haven't recorded vocals yet because we don't have a practice space. if you want to imagine the vocals, just imagine someone yelling over the music.

the six songs are part of an e.p. called LORD, LET THE VIOLENCE RETURN TO CHICAGO.

here are the titles of the six songs and my thoughts on them.

1. NIGHT LOBSTER

so sweet. honestly feel like i want to cover my fist in cocaine and punch someone in the face to this. also feel like this one is my best chance to sell to fifa sports for big $.

2. KEVIN

for some reason when i hear this one, i imagine an all black room, with a girl in a bikini dancing, and me dancing behind her. fun fact: this track is named after wes's boss.

3. I DON'T LIKE ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS

seriously fat shit. makes me want to join a gang then once i'm in just immediately kill myself.

4. DEEP SHIT

listening to it as i type this. this seems like the 'druggiest' of the bunch. again, feel the need to cover my fist in cocaine and punch someone. huh!

5. THE TREMENDOUS HUG

some serious club shit. this beast has three testicles and they're coated in cocaine (because i'd previously coated my fist in cocaine and punch the beast's testicles). feel like the end of this song is "beautiful as fuck."

6. HAVING FUN IS STUPID

honestly don't know what to say about this. i can see this one played in the background of a WB teen show where someone is confronted with peer pressure to try new drugs. and then i walk in and punch someone with a cocaine coated fist.

(end thoughts on songs)

they're all free to download. they're wav files, which sound good, then you can download them as mp3s, which sound not as good. either way, listen to them with good headphones/speakers, because the bass will kill you. i'm proud of all of them!

depressed woman. 2012. have us play at your apartment/studio/birthday party. it's just me and wes and a fourtrack playing the music while we dance and sing. wes will also wear an all khaki suit and a cowboy hat (he's from texas). we have a big p/a/ system too.

OXYCONTIN

"i am going to clone myself then kill the clone and eat it" will be published in finland at some point in the future.

also, i encourage you to amazon review "no one can do anything worse to you than you can" there is already one review. if you like it, i encourage you to use the phrase "best book of american poety ever." feel like it's true, so it should be spread.

also, if someone is willing to fund it, i will get my cat's name (rontel) tattooed on my neck in cursive lettering.

also, i have a new drawing that i made if anyone wants to buy it. i am trying to raise money to buy new speaker cables.

also, i still have a small amount of the cassette tape "i never liked my dad" if anyone wants one.

there's an anthology online called "horseghost" and it has a lot of good writing in it.

you can see the whole thing here.

NO ONE CAN DO ANYTHING WORSE TO YOU THAN YOU CAN



you can buy NO ONE CAN DO ANYTHING WORSE TO YOU THAN YOU CAN.

it's four long poems: "the midwest" "you hear ambulance sounds and think they are for you" "human beings are toys" and "a shield made of napkins"

i feel really proud. it took me a long time to write. i feel really good. feel like if i still had the ability to cry, i would've cried while writing it. but i didn't. i just stared at the computer and/or the wall behind the computer. it's probably the greatest book of american poetry ever written. it's a lot better than leaves of grass, i think. anyway, i hope you like it if you buy it, and i hope you think about the book when you read about me being found in pieces in a garbage bag on the side of clark st.

you can listen to one of the readings i did at awp, here at this website.


if anyone recorded the other readings i did, you can like, link them here i think.

here's a link to another one. dj berndt did the video. seems really easy not to like me if you see me in person, based on this video. i don''t know, just got that "i hate this guy" feeling from it.

11.3.12

i'm going to spend time working on writing "person 2" and making music. if anyone wants to buy a book/cassette/art off me email me sampinkisalive@gmail.com

if you know of a practice space i could use and/or want me and my friend wes to play our music for you somewhere, email me.

also, if anyone has a copy of "repo" by the black dice that i could have for free, email me.

i dont feel good.
