Highly anticipated follow up album to Norm Sherman's first self-titled album in 2007.
Music Video for Track #10 of this project, the now infamous "Pimp My Satellite". And you thought the space race with Russia was over...
This is a 10 track album featuring professionally mixed/remastered/re-recorded versions of the following songs--
Juzt Mizunderstood: Imagine being a teenager this day and age-- dead inside, nobody understands you, all goth'd out and vacant looking, everyone telling you what to do. Now imagine being a zombie teenager in this day and age, having to deal with a 'totally lame' society that doesn't even realize you're 'like, totally, undead.' Here's an emo-rock song on the matter.
Playing Dead: What if 'endangered species' weren't so much 'endangered' as 'trying to cover up illicit drug trafficking operations?' A bluegrass tune told from the perspective of a rare ivory-billed woodpecker trying to sell moonshine on the side.
The Heartache Over Innsmouth: Fans of H.P. Lovecraft will no doubt enjoy references to his fiction in every other word of this soulful piano-rock ballad. The rest of you will enjoy a passionate heartache story about losing your first big crush to an esoteric cult (and their consequent transformations into the pseudo-amphbian.)
SciFi High: An old school hip-hop tune about trying to graduate from a high school full of infamous sci-fi movie-monsters.
The Babylon Battle of the Bands: Rap-rock about the very first 'Battle of the Bands' contest... in ancient Mesopotamia.
Radioactive Runaways: Laid-back retrospective rock reflecting on the past. A scientist ponders the behavioral decisions and upbringing involved in raising up a pair of young mutant radioactive Hollywood mega-monsters in combat amongst the streets of Tokyo.
75 Lines: A fast-moving Bob Dyan style folk tune that describes every Drabblecast story episodes 1 through 75 in each of it's 75 lines.
Cougar at the Con: "Yah there's a cougar at the con. With hardly any costume on. I think it's Wonder Woman's mom, but she's got it going on, yah there's a cougar at the con."
Mongolian Deathworm (Just Another Lonely Night): Another heart-felt piano-rock ballad involving the legendary Mongolian Deathworm and its possible whereabouts in the arid Gobi desert.
Pimp My Satellite: These some gangsta-ass rhymes bein f'real shot out at them punk-ass SOVIET space-engineers still hatin' from the Cold War. We just pimped the Hubble bitchezzzzzz!
