  • This is 27 minutes of lo-fi experiments culled from years of playing around with Microsoft Sound Recorder since getting my first Windows computer. Almost all of the editing was done therein - not exactly a swift process...

    Originally part of my first DIY-produced demo, it's here with reproduced liner notes and lyrics in PDF format. I'd prob give a buck if someone had packaged this physically, but I like kinda bizarre stuff sometimes.

about

Goddio was physically available only as part of a demo CD limited to 68 hand-painted CD-Rs with extensive lyrics and production notes, but I cherish these very lo-fi home recordings some of which date back more than a decade so much so that I've made them available again.

Track Name: Aum
Where were we?

Aum, aum, aummmm

Ma, ma

Ramsey, yesmaR…
Track Name: Calling
Cell Phone!

Hi! You’ve reached!

What?!
Track Name: Did You?
What happened to the other day
When we went walking through
Every step of the way to-get-her…
Well I want you to get straight me
Don’t step out of line
Don’t lie to me
Did you? Did you?
Well it’s something you’ll have to deal with
NOW!
Track Name: Just Hang Out
I’m trying something a little different here
Putting a medium in the way to block your fear
I don’t want it to hurt
I just want to enjoy it so you can feel comfortable
Maybe there’s a more appropriate word for what I’m trying to have you feel
And so why would I want to feel comfortable
When I need to you know something that will make you feel uncomfortable
I know you may hate me
When I tell you exactly how I feel
So just hang out
One day we’ll be bestest friends, I’m sure
And when it happens
You know, it’ll be really cool
So just hang out
And get to know
The pain and deal!
Track Name: Montage (Emily)
How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
How often have you been there?
Often enough to know!
What did you see when you were there?

-Emily
-What
-Sing for the answering machine
-Whose answering machine is this?
-It’s mine
-Oh, okay, um…

How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
How often have you been there?
Often enough to know!
What did you see when you were there?
Track Name: Spit in the Fan
Don’t mister – spit in my fan!
Don’t mister – spit in my fan!
Don’t mister – spit in my fan!
Don’t mister – spit in my fan!
You don’t understand…
Don’t mister – spit in my fan!
Track Name: The Amber Noise Mix Even Furthest
-Help me! No you can’t have it! No, no, no, no, no, no… #$%@$#
Track Name: Wasted Time
Know this! – I wasted time…
Track Name: What [question mark]
Eutrophication
Who am I to care
What my neighbor's doing
The water that we share

What?!
It's the microphone on my computer!
Track Name: Network!
You've got to network with the people
That you saw perform in the show
Get to know...
Track Name: Working!
A market for this
A market for that
YOU CAN'T RELY ON BUYING THE TRUTH!

What?!

You really are going nowhere
I don't care what you think
Stop lying! STOP!
My anger towards you spills

You really are going nowhere

The tidal rips across your back
And you keep looking
STOP!
A foolish attitude

After I open your head I'll plant a seed and leave
I'm not here, nothing's here

You're going nowhere - for real...

Ramsey, yesmaR....
Track Name: Pause (Toothache mix)
What happened to the other day?
When we went walking through every step of the way to-get-her
Well I want you to get straight with me
Don’t step out of line
Don’t lie to me
Did you go there, did you do it
Did you say it, did you wander away?
Well it’s something that you’ll have to deal with today

If I have my part to play
The children will rejoice at your scars and say
The piper’s gonna pay today
For giving us shit for our lives’ dismays

And here's where the story changes without a sound
I continued to eat at time and spend the afternoon making rhymes
I was paying no attention to the source of the omniscient frowns
When all the sudden
The ground became nothing more than sound
It had disappeared and I was floating like I was in space
I could not breathe - no need!
I had displaced my bearings, I was getting dizzy
I wanted to vomit because I was totally wallowing in my waste
