Here is the new end theme for the podcast. There's a fine line between cleverand stupid.

Oct 24, 2016

We were going to do Act 3 with "Old Man Blues" book-ending it like a Neil Young album but then stayed with the original song order. This here is the acoustic Act opener that we ended up ditching! It's also a nice callback after the two big suites. 

Oct 19, 2016

Checklist: Bob Sipes's "Air Band," Reo Speedwagon, Alice Cooper, Ralph Stanley, Flock Of Seagulls, Hank Williams, Charlie Pride, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Oak Ridge Boys, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Rush, Chris Plummer, "No racists," Public Enemy, NWA, and a Beatles mention at the 13:40 mark. You'll have to listen to the rest!

Dave says what Brian is wearing as they record this podcast immediately after recording vocals on THE VACUUM. The fellas cycle through various shout outs namely to Joe Gallagher, Dennis Barth, Mike Kerr, and Chris plummer PLUS the introduction of the characters Chinggis Khan and Julius Caesar. Then the fellas expound upon Ancient and Medieval history. Also Mr Wind was fun with to hang out. Dave does a Captain Vane impression.

Term of the week: "Piece of ass-ness."

Then the fellas survey the general state of SciFi TV and go spoiler crazy giving away major plot points to Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Daredevil, and Game Of Thrones all seasons.

Dave and Brian start by getting levels and reminisce upon wife meetings. Then there's a John Lennon mention at the 7 minute mark. Brian talks about cleaning up his hard drive which turned out not as awesomely as hoped. Then Dave notes that the O's were beating the Royals 5-0. Then they launch into a pop culture potpourri consisting of Donny and Marie, Hee Haw, the Monkees, the Gong Show, F Troop, Scooby Doo, Pre Cable TV, Frank Turner, Lucero, and Marah (Philly is a rowdy town). Then Dave sings Ween's "Freedom of 76" and Joe Flacco stops by.

Welcome to the Vacuum

A song for all the hearts that are departed

Welcome to the vacuum


Walking through ancient Rome everything's the same

So I turn my back to the riverbed and children and their games

Hello, friends, I'm here to please to break the wickid ways

Life's a myth and so is this and so is judgement day

I seen too soon another swoon running from a gun

I felt the world shrivel up hell I'm only having fun

Interviewing Dawn on judgement day

Subadai took Europe's sons and put them in a grave

Built a world on top of them vanished in the haze

The Khan he sighed 'cause he was bored and turned his mind to east

Crushed their souls, drank from bowls, took pleasure in the feast

Interviewing Dawn on judgement day

"What you done?" asked Caesar's son and plunged the knife in deep

The Gallic ones were slaughtered by the Roman Nobilise

Nobody lived to tell the tale history turned her back

IRL for you and me it started in Iraq

Interviewing Dawn come judgement day


A song for al the hearts that are departed

A prayer for those who never got it started

A valentine for all the broken hearted

A joke for all the bitterness departed

A blindman's leap into a void suggestion

A glimpse of hope for all thoise in depression

No answer to the everlasting question

Bask, become a target, no regression

Welcome to the vacuum


If the world were perfect the dodo would live

Brotherhood and sisterhood woud be the words to give

Laughter would float endlessly up through a tearless sky

Giant trees would shade a peace that never says "goodbye"

In a world levitation

Don't stand in line to find regeneration in all human kind

You need no explanation

Feel free to see reality and be for what you want to be

Although I know the show won't start

Take aim and touch my bleeding heart

If the world were perfect I wouldn't lose my keys

War would be a rhyme for door and there would be no need for peace

A skinless man and woman would be all that we would need

Money would be funny and we'd all say "what is greed?"

But all the time my optimism fades

And I get too hung up to struggle for the shade

The world seems so unkind

Build the nerve to climb out of this hole

If the world were perfect I wouldn't sing this song

If the world were perfect we'd be one big dancing throng

In a world levitation


Packed in the slave ship side by side

The slave ship Captain enjoy the ride

They bought and sold him flesh on leash

From his home on the African beach

And they trade his heart for gold

What the white man sold

The war was fought bondage gone

1860s protest song

General Lee to MLK

Elvis Presley in the USA

And the time she rumbles on

Hatred not long gone

And she knows what she knows

At he dawn of our millennium

Bottled water and titanium

Packed in the ghetto side by side

His father owned his father they're side by side

Neither one can make the rent

Hatred raging action spent

Cry forgotten son


I can walk away disgusted

It ain't us against them

It's us against us

It's friend against friend

So you know everything

So you have got it done

So your world will live on

Cry forgotten son

Your world is so mapped out

From what your father planned

Smile at the face of sickness

It bites the other hand

'Cause your world ain't my world

But my sun is your sun

And I guess that it always was

Cry forgotten ones


Your world ain't my world

Killing for your god

Written in the scriptures

Your word is a lie

People work and people play

People sing and people dance

People love and people hate

People live and people die

Your world ain't my world
