by now you may have already have been noticing a certain theme which is the fact of the medium recording me and my ego plus the role i play in the gigantic ritual of sharing the higher truth together that we all know somewhere inside of us but then every so often someone comes along and tries to put it in words and if the words are not enough then they... drop a phat beat on it the fattest beat ain't fat enough it's skinnier than an anorexic oh oh baby... [scatting] uh, harlem line back in 1982 brother, shit man, if you didn't know someone or other... slide to unlock slide to unlock slide to unlock

also by now you might have been noticing that the water is spilling across the table and soaking all the paper that is lying with its words undying forever trying to make us feel the way that we should have... ...been from before as i watch the norwegian fjords growing ever more long i gotta say hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey have you ever mistaken a water pitcher for your dearly departed uncle? well i'm not saying that i have but i might've i don't want you to get the wrong idea don't get too superstitious you know it brings bad luck i've always wanted to be here and now that i am i don't wanna get gone but who are you and who am i and how do we know that this is nothing more than a dream gymnasium?

Hear Here 00:35
we're obviously into the album extras because you're alone as you're listening to this and i'm alone as i'm recording this except your aloneness now is at least more real and present than where i am-- i'm gone, as soon as i said this, it's done, but when you're hearing this, you're here i wish that i could return the favor
15.
furthermore, this is great, now that i've learned that i can cut the recordings short you know, frankenstein's monster and count dracula, werewolf of london and jack the ripper good! that gives us something in common then jeckyl and hyde, portrait of dorian gray victorian age was kind of creepy in a way

this is my apology to the world: i'm sorry i called you sucker ass you're alright and you're probably better than me and the reason i'm talking right now into a piece of technology is because i'm so very lonely! there's no one here to share this misery of what it means to be me, you just don't know. oh, but wait, you're you and maybe you feel better than i do well...

about

Otherwise Intelligent People Seattle, Washington

Otherwise Intelligent People is an act of lonesome desperation, a one-man-band constantly at odds with itself over artistic differences. Are we techno? Are we punk? Are we brut?
