Recorded in 2004 on some janky-ass equipment.

The front cover is on Green Street in Urbana, Illinois, and taken on an equally janky-ass camera. The back cover is an extreme closeup of a picture taken a long time ago by my pal Bill.

If you buy the full discography (HA!), I will write and perform a personalized song.

Misk was a thing I did with my brother a long time ago, mostly based on stuff I wrote an even longer time ago.

I am doing other, newer things now with The Autocorrect.

Track Name: 21 Dollar Bill
Missing toys
Good detectives
"We got your boys"

They have a modest fee
(Dollar bill...)

Crack detectives!
Track Name: I Am So Disappointed In You
People only talk to each other
When they want something
But I may be cynical
I may be cynical, but what do you want?

Nobody listens anymore
They just wait for their turn
What did you say?
I was composing my reply
Track Name: Sounds Like America
Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed...
Track Name: Marc
Marc, there's a song on your album.

It's the shortest song in there, but it gives me such strength. The words came at me like cryptic messages, a few days ago when I really needed help to go on. I needed a sign that all we know is true, for at times we all wonder if we're just not totally made. The song's "Life's a Gas". I had just thrown a whole group of people out of my life. They hadn't learned, and they were draining me. I hated to get rid of them, but I knew I had to, and it would be all right but I was very down. I was very down.

One hour later I put on your record and heard, "It doesn't really matter at all, no it doesn't really matter at all, life's a gas,"

...and I felt my strength returning. Was I right? Marc's eyes lit up and the magic poured through with its blinding brilliance. "But of course! That's what the whole song's about! It doesn't matter at all. You must not let things matter. Things happen for a reason, and we can make them happen. We can make them happen."

"There is nothing about my career that is an accident."

We looked at each other and the understanding was total.

The understanding was total.

"It doesn't really matter at all, no it doesn't really matter at all, life's a gas..."
