Social Media

I was really stunned when first coming to social media and found people from Jr. High (now called Middle School) and High School friending me who I barely recalled.  Yet they, by and large, had invented friendships between us that never were!  Some females acted as if I had been an old boyfriend when in fact they never said "Hi" to me back then! 

I could not figure out how this occurred.  Conscious or unconscious manipulation of time??  Did they think they knew me because I was on stage??  Did my music create a semblance of intimacy that never existed?? 

Then I came across this quote: 

"Your memory is really some guy making stuff up. I discovered as an adult that I had whole chunks of memories of things that didn’t happen."-author Steven Galloway 

Maybe that is it?  People filled in the blanks of the past with their own fiction to have something to remember. 

I can truly honestly say that a good number of SM contacts never were friends of mine.  We never hung out together.  We never played music together.  We never acted together.  They never aided in any film project I created (from scratch).  They probably did not even KNOW I made films from 1970-1978!!  And certainly no one on earth ever helped me write a single word. 

Who are you and who am I??  I know... I remember... You can't fool me.  I KNOW.

An actual song fromn 1988 

This was a song from 1988.  Yep, actual lyrics!  No idea how the music went.  Maybe it's on a copyright tape from that year...?
Reading these I understand why no record company number counter pinhead exec understood what the hell I was about!

Cousin from Kingston

East West lady
On a channel to nowhere
Blue stain satin diamond
Barrette in her hair
Old man’s bitchin’ about her
Hangin’ around
But don’t feel sorry
She’s a sister of Dionysian

AC\DC beatin’
Traffic at midnight
Roadside action heavy
By moonlight

Mental Picture\Unlistenable Mess:  The Completed Home Recordings

Paul Tait 1992-2000

 

Steve Winwood once said of his self produced self performed album “Arc of the Diver” that it was a text book case in what not to do as a recording engineer.  Clearly this collection of one offs and midnight madness’, from an engineers perspective, could sit beside Winwoods without bowing in deference.  In fact, you could say Mr. Tait has rewritten the book on what not to do as a recording engineer.

Early Reflections on the Arts 

About 2018 and "CryptoCreative": Want to thank Casper Jones (guitars), Tracy Ferrie (bass), and Peter Koeplin (drums) for their awesome one of a kind musicianship. They are the best part of the album!   I am the next best part as the songs are mine, vocals mine, piano mine. Ha ha ha   As I have hinted but now must make official, this album is the last. It was 35 years ago last April I released my first record, so (without planning) this last one is 35 years later. I cannot see any reason to add…
