I spent about a month making this song and video, so I'd like to share it with people who might appreciate it. For the music, I cut out words and
phrases of the two candidates from the debates and a few other sources. Some of the lines are things they actually said, others are the result of
rearranging the words to create new meaning. Hear the candidates endorse anarchy, fall in love, and debunk the truth! The videos come from
'Manufacturing Consent,' a PBS documentary on lizards, and old political advertisements.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. It's not meant to be an endorsement or critique of either candidate specifically, but rather the two party system which
protects American imperialist interest in general.

i get it brother, its #ing making fun of the two party system and in a satirical way.. but you really should of gone with drum and bass with a dark
industrial tune like this, what you made was too schizophrenic (disjointed) for the schizophrenics, remember all the people who vote for these idiots
voted for these idiots, they need it in a catchy hard core and rhythmic tone- to fully be impacted.
Sex sells, and so does hardcore beats, you got the idea make it happen brother...
i can help you, if you'd like PM me

Allow me to rant, briefly: So I expected this reaction more or less. I have no intention of making music that falls into cookie cutter genres like
'rock' or 'hip-hop' or something that can be reduced to 'drum and bass dark industrial tune.' These genres of music have all failed us -- despite
them, we still have the world we have. So its time to try something new, not follow blindly what people have done in the past. In the same way that I
would never follow an organized religion like Christianity or Islam, because its a kind of brainwashing, I would never attempt to make genre music,
because it's a kind of soulwashing.
Unfortunately for listeners this requires work. When you listen to something new for the first time, the neural routes required to enjoy it simply
haven't formed in your brains yet, and so your only experience can be one of shock or disgust. It's like you're taking a complicated drive in a new
landscape for the first time. You can't enjoy the landscape, because you're focused on not getting lost, not driving your car into a ditch, etc. But
if you happened to take that drive a second time, you'd enjoy it a bit more, and the third or fourth time, you might even think, "Wow, this is one of
the greatest trips I've ever taken." I talk not from my ass, but from personal experience. Much of my favorite music is stuff that I didn't get or
even despised upon first listen.
Not that I'm saying I make great music or that every one needs to like it. But most people are simply lazy listeners, lazy movie watchers, lazy art
critics. If they don't understand something the first time around, they reject it, because its easier and faster to reject a thing than to give it a
second glance. These are the same people who would've been rejecting Beethoven, Bach, Penderecki, Radiohead, or saying Van Gogh's work wasn't
realistic enough. It is the history of art. People accused Mozart of 'having too many notes.' People accused Terry Riley and Philip Glass 'of not
having enough notes.' So calling a thing too complicated or too simplistic is only because we compare anything new to what we're used to. It's
understandable. Unfortunately, it isn't conducive to fostering an innovative artistic community, and if we all reacted that way, we'd still be
listening to Gregorian chants or synchronized cave man farts.
So if you're brave, I dare you to listen a second time. (P.S. There is far less chaos if you wear headphones -- the sounds have been designed to come
from the left or right or middle channels. To me, not wearing headphones for this kind of music is like watching a 3D movie without 3D glasses).
