01. "Goin' Back to L.A. (2010 mix)" (released on 6/5/2010) - celebrates the old days of driving 120 miles to Los Angeles to hear the Dr. Demento Show because the fan's hometown wouldn't carry the show on their radio stations in the fan's radio market. The driving trek takes place on a Sunday in 1981 when the Doc used to do a live four-hour show on a now-defunct radio station.
Long Description: This is something that I used to do way back in the early 1980s some weeks when I was 21, had a beaten-up 1970 Torino, gas was just $1.19 a gallon, minumum wage was $3.35 an hour, and no station in San Diego carried the Dr. Demento Show. Back in 1981, thanks to Dr. Demento going on Tomorrow with Tom Snyder and plugging his four-hour live show on the late KMET 94.7, I got some way to get demented for four hours a week from 6pm-10pm.
Problem. I live in San Diego where there's a strong station on 94.9, interfering with my reception of 94.7 in Los Angeles. So I had to either put up with a crappy radio receiving interference, or drive up to El Toro or somewhere and hang out at a burger stand in the area where I could receive 94.7 clearly. I used to bring some tape cassettes and a tape deck to tape the shows, dub some of my favorites onto another tape, then erase over the tapes I used to tape the show every week. This comedy rap song I produced is a salute to all the people who used to drive to a nearby city to listen to Dr. Demento in whatever city he may be on. Remember that back in 1981, this was well over 15 years before Internet radio made traveling to another city obsolete. One more note: after Dr. Demento's live show ended at 10pm, KOLA 99.9 carried the syndicated version of the Dr. Demento Show from 10pm-MID. I never cared that much for KOLA because most of the time if not all of it was basically voicetracked, never hearing any live deejays during the day or night.
02. "Hey, Whimsical Will" (released on 1/9/2011) - after 25 years, Whimsical Will decided to quit producing his annual Summer Movie Adventures after producing his 25th one in 2010. I have something to say about that.
03. "Funnyback" (released on 4/6/2010) - an official tribute song of David Tanny's ten years of dementia works.
04. "I Eat Animals" (released on 8/1/2010) - Benny Bell would have liked the song. It's a politically incorrect salute to all of the meat eaters.
05. "No Place to Park (2010 mix)" (released on 6/5/2010) - no place to park? That's a major problem. It's a comedy rap commentary on overcrowded parking lots and the businesses who don't get the rapper's business simply because there's no place to park his car. The businesses underestimated the number of parking spaces to include in their property.
06. "80s TV" (released on 6/5/2010) - yet another original rap, this time, sort of like 70 lines about 35 TV shows. Every two lines weaves in a name of a popular TV show from the 80s at the end of the pair.
07. "Nothingman" (recorded in 2010, released on 1/1/2011) - what if there was a hero that was anything but super, in fact, way below super.
08. "Dead Bug (2010 higher pitch mix)" (released on 6/5/2010) - I wrote this when I saw a dead bug on the wall.
09. "I'm a Cowboy (2010 live mix)" (released on 4/11/2010) - An original song using clever rhymes for "Day" almost throughout the song.
10. "Warner Music" (released on 2/24/2010) - another original about a song parodist whose songs got taken off of Youtube because a certain record label didn't understand what a parody is.
11. "Zorch" (released on 8/19/2008) - is a lyrical parody of The Monkees' track "Zilch" and serves as a tribute to the late novelty singer Nervous Norvous.
12. "The New Adventures of Old Christine" (released on 3/13/2010) - another new original song borrowing from the 1983 Men Without Hats classic "Safety Dance." It's a lyrical parody of "Weird Al" Yankovic's parody "The Brady Bunch."
13. "Mary Had a Little Lamb featuring The Woodchucks" (recorded in January 1981, released on 10/5/2004) - Something I combined when I sped up an old cassette player to double the speed of my voice while synching it to an old Magnus organ. This was way before digital stuff made this extra work obsolete.
14. "Fan Speculation" (released on 4/30/2010) - an original rap that goes into pop culture without limiting itself to sci-fi topics.
15. "CD Interruption 2" (released on 7/18/2007) - CDs are also subject to being interrupted.
16. "News Bulletin SA3" (released on 7/18/2006) - even a CD gets interrupted by a news bulletin? Yes, Stupid Audio has it's own news department. This was originally released on the "Stupid Audio 3.0" CD.
17. "Nothing's on TV" (recorded in 2007, released 8/19/2008) - what's with all of the dreck that's on network TV in the post appointment TV era?
18. "Alyssa Milano Intro" (released on 7/18/2006)
19. "Alyssa Milano" (released on 7/18/2006) - something stupid I created with just a celebrity name, three shows, and three characters she was associated with. I tried to write a song about one of my favorite actresses of all time, but after some 100 crinkled pieces of paper, I gave up and decided to try something more avant garde.
20. "Alyssa Milano A Capella" (released on 7/18/2006)
