I originally had spoken word samples in the mix but was not 100% certain they were public domain and so subtracted them. Very cool that you put spoken word back in. And excellent words at that.

I am constantly amazed how a track can almost speak universally to what it needs. Your work is also a fertile play ground so I’m never worried that the well will dry up before the track is done :) Thanks for your consistent and beautiful body of work given so generously here! :D
Cheers!

Brilliant. Love how you play with the rhythm and suggest that diabetes and gout will be our downfall. Bravo. I hope you and yours are staying well.

I wish I could say that all the rhythm was planned out ahead of time but I wrote the words with only a quick listen through - I’m not even sure I heard the whole track before hitting record - and where it lined up just sort of happened :) I love happy musical accidents! :D
Good to see and hear you again my friend!

Oh I completely forgot… I make Kombucha for a living and I am just amazed how globally type II diabetes has taken over this planet. Almost every culture around the world is eating high glycemic foods all the time and we are suffering for it. In better news - no gout here :)
Thanks again for all you do SackJo! :)

Truth spoken with artistic flair! Apathy is indeed the disease of our time. Thank you for putting into words the feelings in my heart. And, with so much swank and style. This is brilliant.

Wow… I just love this from head to toe. Creative, inspiring, and totally FUN. Ever read “The Peaceful Warrior” by Dan Millman? Now I must re-re-re-read it…

Haha! Cool! I first read it in the mid-90s… it had a big influence on me… I hope you like. Thank you, too! I am totally looking forward to meeting you on Sunday’s meetup!

Sorry Joel I do not know what made me do such a weird review prob ptsd and beer. I try to avoid lyrics mixed with sound I go somewhere. Your words touched on some Carl Sagan. The World seems to be lacking problem solving intelligence, not enough workers. Research proves most cannot handle prolonged exposure to combat. I could care and handle dogs but people were the most difficult and Arts are getting more personal.
