SHADOWS
Long stemmed rose in a vase that knows of a mournful and regrettful melody
In a city by the shore in what used to be Baltimore there was a boy no laughter flying free
Now that boy is a man long stemmed rose in his hand
To his beloved he gets down on his knee
She then just laughs a little but worse than that
He cracked her and watched her flying free
I saw them walking outside again
"I'll never love you" is what she said to him
I saw them walking in from the clouds
The shadows in the windows growing dim
I saw them walking outside again
"I'll never love you" is what she said to him
I saw them walking in through the clouds
The shadows in the windows growing dim

My notes on this are sketchy. Dave and Brian try to figure out how to stage the Big Opera and then go into an overview of Act 2 which concludes MONDAY! And talk about Ween.

Jun 29, 2016

Davey and Briany explain a "collage audience," aver that "good music ain't ever gonna stop being made," declare that "EW respects Science Fiction," and opine that "tobacco is the dumbest drug in the world besides junk food."

DEATH IN HER HEART
She's a woman, man, she used to be a beauty
Hard living's made it hard for her to see
She build up a wall that crashed like thunder
She felt sadness far as her eyes could see
Freedom's a lie and so isindependence
She's spent her life being controlled
She didn't even know that til this instant
Yeah but she won't giveup any of her sould
She chuckles softly as she prays to Jesus
"I'm sorry, God, but I've wasted my whole damn life
It's him or me, God, I fear I'm coming to meet you"
There's death in her heart
When the morning sun comes up on her companion
She feels a hate that she cannot explain
"A romantic whore" she thinks and drops a dozen
She don't know that Baby Blue's checked in
She chuckles softly as she prays to Jesus
"I'm sorry, God, but I've wasted my whole damn life
It's him or me, God, I fear I'm coming to meet you"
There's breath in her heart

This is the song that made Brian want to do the other 79 songs. Also Dave's wife liked this song before she even met him! Ups to Monster Rob for the squawking. Also Dave Dave and Bri Bri discuss fashion sense and proper kilt color schemes. Quote of the week: "That's why people don't like me, because these people are dicks!"

DREAMGIRL
Hold this a second for me please while I scrape the blood off of my knees
Yeah please excuse me if I sneeze I just came in from overseas
I been thinking about you every day been writing down every word you say
I keep your fingernails under my bed
I keep a picture of your face inside my head
I ain't seen you in a while but I remember the way you smile
I like the way that you paint your eyes but most of all I like your style
I like your fashion sense and your taste in clothes
And the powder falling out your nose
And them earrings you gave me last July
And the tattoo of Catwoman on your thigh
Dreamgirl give me your hand Dreamgirl hell I'm your man
You remind me of damage in your hair you remind me of the damned in what you wear
You remind me of your momma in your breasts
You remind me of drugs when you sit at your desk
I love the way you shaved your head
I love the way you make my bed
I love the way you crashed my car
I love the way you melt candy bars
Dreamgirl give me your hand Dreamgirl hell I'm your man
I remember when you bought your farm and how you took me by the arm
And then you smashed that fire alarm you showed me you did posess some charm
But they wouldn't let us share a prison cell
I chalked the days and said oh well
When we were free we played mandolins
And reminded ourselves of original sin
You are my dreamgirl yeah it's true
Sometimes I wish that I was you
I know you wish that you were me
I just came in from over seas
Dreamgirl give me your hand Dreamgirl hell I'm your man

Best quote: "You were looking at your notes then you took your glasses off then you forgot everything."

Lesson learned: Brian is a technophobe who loves science.

HE DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
He's frightened she's coming his way
He's speeding he don't know what to say
Last night he planned today
Right now he don't know what to say
How many times can a manshrink in life
How many times can he fail to meet his wife
How many times can he turn his back on love
She ain't happy no help from above
He turned and watched him walk away
He stuttered he don't know what to say
She sighed cigarette ash float away
She cried he don't know what to say
Yeah yeah yeah
He sat his brain melted away
He watches she don't know what to say
She sleeps her time come today
He wakes he don't know what to say

For the record the drummer in Pritty Hary was Feise! In the commentary track for "My Own Electric Chair" Dave Dave and Bri Bri apparently send "shout outs" to Paul Kelley and PJ Deboy, according to mine own "notes." This is the song where the world of the big opera begins expansion. Up to the beginning of the second act everything could have taken place in modern times. These two songs are the first steps to world building. But they also work as stand alone songs.

MY OWN ELECTRIC CHAIR


I'm the man who pulls the switch 

For the killing son of a bitch

He murdered now he'll die

He might kill again or lie

I'm alright bit uptight execute Monday night
Tuesday night watch a fight execute I'm alright

I've heard of atom bombs

and I've heard of protest songs

But when a man will kill and rob

I've got to do my job

First we shave his head get rid of all that hair
Then we strap him down to the electric chair
Alright

I'm the man who pulls the switch

profit from a nervous twitch

When all is done and through

should I kill me too


First we shave his head get rid of all that hair
Then we strap him down to the electric chair
So first I'll shave my head get rid of all my hair
And get what I deserve in my own electric chair
In my own electric chair

Since SFP respects Memorial Day we didn't publish the next song in the Big Opera. Being as Dave and Brian have a strong work ethic they recorded several theme podcasts that ain't about any particular song and this here is one of them. Kids of the 80s, pop culture dorks, David Letterman influenced by osmosis,  here are some lists.

May 25, 2016

Dave and Brian get into the nitty gritty in regards to the song "Adam & Eve." In regards to the conversation they name drop the short lived combo Pritty Hary. In regards to the further conversation they discuss STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS. In regards to the rest of the podcast you'll have to listen. In regards to grammar, my most sincerest regards. Regards. Dave.

May 23, 2016

ADAM AND EVE
Angel White's a killer works for the state
Life's so funky, Angel White's is great
'Cause my homeboy pulls the switch ozone in the air
Picks his paycheck off the floor right nect to the electric chair

The morals of a scoundrel and the science of a bill
He'd push his only brother from a high up window sill
His duty is to Jesus to murder the ones that kill
He's sanctioned by the government and probably always will

Dawn is young and free in many different ways
She wants to give the love she never got in younger days
She ran down to the city fell right through the floor
Lost her light to smack and went from lustrous to a whore

So what a little money never hurt that's all it took
Shadowed by the executionarium she shook
He met a little lady why a flowing like a brook
They fell in love like lovers do and put it in a book

Because they're gnarly rascals Adam & Eve
23rd century lovers Adam & Eve
Will they find salvation, baby, Adam & Eve
Full of resignation, baby, Adam & Eve

The sun comes up almost every day
Nothing lasts forever as the old man wants to say
Hum that woeful weddig dirge so he can say his piece
Cross that bridge to the abyss and sit down for the feast

In the corner look it, someone turns to moves and stops to see
A picture of a frozen smile that's fractured by the glee
He looks back to his drink and thinks I'm glad that isn't me
The old man sucks his whiskey down collapses by a tree

Because they're gnarly rascals Adam & Eve
23rd century lovers Adam & Eve
Will they find salvation, baby, Adam & Eve
Full of resignation, baby, Adam & Eve

The first act has concluded! Did you see what we did there? In order for the first course to digest Dave and Brian have made some special podcasts that don't correspond specifically to anything in The Big Opera. This is the first one they one dropped. Here they break down improvisation in music, according to them. Notable quotes: "Tom Waits is f****** bananas!" and "Shakespeare's bad as f***, dude!" Also mentioned, the 3 record couplet.

May 16, 2016

Doctor Dave and Snoop Brian Bri delve into the creaion "Torn Dress Blues" and how it fits into the larger narrative. The conversation soon throttles into Doctor Who, Star Wars, and John & Yoko. Quote of the day: "They live to f*** with you."

May 13, 2016

TORN DRESS BLUES

There's a torn dress in the corner I don't know where it's from

I got bloody knuckles and I got a broken thumb

There's a shovel by the door I don't know why it's there

I got dirty fingernails and blood all in my hair

I thought it was er tat I buried but I seen her walking down the street

If it wasn't her that I buries I guess it must have been me

 

The Blues is half of the essential handbook for any serious musician in the United States of America. By "the blues" what folk scholars actually mean is "music created by Africans in America." The other half is the folk music the Europeans conjured when confronted by this vast land trying to hold onto their roots. Neither is more important than the other. There's no guilt for being more in one camp than the other. In a land where certain freedoms are guaranteed in writing if not practice the only music jettisoned by the masses is that of the high born and educated, which is a goddamn fucking dirty shame. It's encapsulated by the banjo, an African instrument beloved by the ones whose necks are sunburned. As Johnny Cash would say, "meditate on it." The indigenous music got fucking trampled.

Davey Dave and Dr Bri break down the 5th song in DAWN.1 and APOCALYPSE TOMORROW, "Elvis Is God." The conversation turns to altering one's conciousness through epic jams and John Lennon's extra strand of DNA.

May 6, 2016

Elvis Is God

The second coming played a rhapsody

Rubbery legged both white and black

Kept the preaching to a minimum

Blood and sweat poured down his sunburned neck

His eyes shut tight and his soul was pure

Jet black hair and karate pose

Sang a song about a mystery

Reverberated 'round the globe

..........

Sideburn Jesus was pumping gasoline

Curled his lip and shook his ass

Drove his truck up to the Temple

The vendors said they'd take a pass

Said "Get your sorry self on back to Memphis

Don't want to hear no blues by whites"

The sneering scarred out face of slavery

Flew across the sky at night

..........

They cleaned him up and took his picture

But the colonel betrayed his very soul

Treated the King like a whored out marionette

But you can't kill Rock and Roll

The last temptation in the Holy Land

Desert sand and neon lights

People come from near and sunder

See him sing three shows a night

They say he's dead but thy're not right

Elvis Is God

Dave and Brian discuss "If I Die Tonight." They start with the inspiration for the writing of the song and drift into Rhys Darby's career and the nitty gritty on how to stage an 80 song rock opera.

Apr 29, 2016

IF I DIE TONIGHT

If I die tonight I would be alright

Because I don't want to live

If I had a chance with my decadence

Well then my life is all I could give

I would sacrifice for the other life

That somehow might not end

If I had to guess I would ask this mess

Would never come again

If I have to fall I implore you all

Not to follow what I done

If I had a choice with my lonely voice

I would pull the trigger of this gun

If I die tonight I would be alright

Because I don't want to live

If I had a chance with my decadence

Well then my life is all I could give

If I die tonight I'm gonna live

Live on and on and on

Snoop Davey Dave and Doctor Bri break down "She's Afraid Of You" with the help of E Strauch who has two thirds of the Axis in him. The conversation turns to the singularity and the idiocy that is labeling music.

Apr 22, 2016

SHE'S AFRAID OF YOU

You spent all your time on

Who you climbed the walls for

Spent all of your money too

She feels like an outcast

This true love did not last

She is getting tired of you

Spend the days growing colder

Yeah

She's already gone

She's afraid of you

Ignore all of her bruises

Concentrate on bad things

Hit her when you're feeling bad

She wouldn't bear your children

Miscarried your first born son

First one that you ever had

Spend the days in icy silence

Yeah

She moves out

She's afraid of you

And the days go on

She came back one day and

You felt like a real man

You hit her just a bit too hard

You made up a gravestone

Laid her out on flagstone

Buried her in your back yard

Joined once again by E Strauch, the fellas break down what went into the song "Greeting Card" and the machinations involved in narrative storytelling in a medium that just don't cotton to it. Also it's only 3/8 pretentious as it sounds because it's goofy.

Apr 15, 2016

GREETING CARD

Walking in the dark

Waiting for the sync to kick the new

Blowing on a spark

Banners reading "loss" when lies turn true

A thunderstorm will rage in the dark but I'll still scream for the sun

A million hopes lie shattered in the dusk build them back one by one

Reaching out my hand

Stumble blindly fall and taste the ground

Crack an awkward joke

Smiling at the bummers all around

A greeting card that's stuck to the floor

From dreams that spill from a whiskey glass

The sunrise blanked by the clouds of the storm

Sitting by and I watch the world spin past

It won't last

Watch the goings on

I just don't feel part of this at all

Turned away and gone

Save me from the summer of the fall

A greeting card that's stuck to the floor

From dreams that spill from a vodka glass

The sunrise blanked by a castle n the shore

Sitting by and I watch the world spin past

It won't last
